Well, all I can say is that we'll have to wait to see the numbers. Let's face it, steamboatin ain't been cheap for a long time. With fuel prices doubling since D.N. bought the boats, it's no wonder that fares are increasing. Everything's going up. Been to the Grocery store lately? That said, most of us have a limit on what our budgets will allow for these cruises. In the past, I've been known to "break the bank" when booking trips. However, I too fear that this year's Tall Stacks will be my last trip for the forseeable future. Perhaps the new management will be able to fill the boats with the blue bloods only, but wouldn't that be a shame. Still, they're in it to make money, plain and simple.
So, what do they care if the rest of us can only afford to wave from shore?
