Frank, you bring back memories! Before the llama rule went into effect, people were interpreting the "all you can carry rule" to mean "all a LLAMA can carry". And believe me, there's a huge difference. The rules at that time were NOT specific enough.
I once saw a llama with the content of an ENTIRE HOUSEHOLD on its back. Plus a family of five. Needless to say, it wasn't fair to the rest of us on the ferry, because as soon as the llama was aboard, the family unpacked everything, leaving NO ROOM for anyone to sit or stand except in the bathroom. And it is no fun to share a bathroom with 75 others.
Anyway, it was shortly after that the rules were changed, and a direct results was the $1 per bag fee. (We estimated that the above-mentioned family would have had to pay $237 if that rule had been in effect.)
