My whole family went on a Sth Pacific cruise 4 years ago and inc everything we spent on board and on the islands etc was less than $3000. and we ate like kings morning noon and night.
Who's doing your bookings? Sounds like you re being charged rack rate to me unless you're going at peak time. Plenty of places to eat on Hamo without buying the meals package.

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
