Based on one of my favorite movie quotes of all time!

Dining Room Menu: A practice by RCCL is to place additional food
selections ($fee) on the menu. At a table with many guests this
creates a tiered system of those who pay extra for better cuts of
meat and those who choose the regular cuts. This is a “tacky”
practice by RCCL and several passengers expressed dissatisfaction and
embarrassment of the practice.


I'm not big on it myself, but that's been common practice for a few
years now with RCCL.


I don't like the practice of charging extra for certain things in the
MDR but I don't see how this is any different than people who may go to
a specialty restaurant several nights. Do you feel embarrassed when they
show up the following night and tell you about their $40 meal while you
ate the normal MDR food? That was the OP's main complaint, it seemed.
