That's true. "Expensive" is a very relative term. $195/year, $95/month, $10/day is probably not a blip on many cruisers' ATM card. I'm just saying when it's offered for free by the rally organizer doesn't it likely become the de facto source for forecasting and routing decisions for the majority of the fleet - unlike in the case of individual cruisers?
