Sneaky add-ons aren't just an airplane phenomenon anymore. The word on the high seas is that Royal Caribbean is floating (excuse the pun) the concept of charging more for items like premium steaks in its main dining rooms, where passengers have had the luxury of ordering anything they want for no extra charge. The line has started to sell 10-ounce Black Angus steaks for $15 in the main dining rooms on two of its ships, Freedom of the Seas and Majesty of the Seas.

What do you think? Has the line, well, crossed the line? Or is this a positive new perk?
