Jeff and Malinda both state valid points. Jeff, I am sure you will keep a pocket full of $1's to tip the waiters in the buffet/grille area too. We made sure our primary servers were happy with the new policy and felt that it was the fairest solution for all of them. We will do the same on our Pride cruise in two weeks and include the opinion of our cabin steward. Should we feel they deserve more, then we will extend cash too. It is a real shame people just can't budget for this expense and put the money aside, but some are not disiplined or just don't care.
