The $8 Hot Dog

P&O Australia decided to poke a little fun at their competitors in Australia in a just-released video. Most American-based lines price everything onboard in US dollars, which is inconvenient and unhandy for most of their passengers on Australian sailings who are Australian. They have to keep in mind when they sign a check for a $5 drink they are actually going to pay closer to eight Australian dollars for it when they settle up at the end of the cruise. P&O, on the other hand, prices everything in Australian dollars, so the line decided to show what would happen if another company doing business in Australia priced its products in US dollars.
