Default Re: Carnival's *pre-paid* gratuities

We have tipped both ways and always a little more than suggested. I think everyone works hard and at least earns the suggested amount. I think if anything, most try to earn a "little extra". I don't know what our cabin steward, wait staff and assistant wait staff could do or not do to not at least earn the suggested amount. No matter if the waitstaff forgot I wanted 2 rolls or a 2nd cup of coffee with dinner or if my cabin steward forgot one towel, they have at least earned the suggested amount by doing the basic requirements. Anything extra gets extra. Just my opinion.
