Having cruised since the 50,s in Miami I have seen all kinds in regard to avoiding the tips at the end of the cruise and in the early years those who were the really cheap skates would not show up at dinner the last nite. these are the same people who complain the most during the cruise and this is their excuse for not tipping those who have made our cruise a wonderful experience.It is no wonder that the cruise lines went to an automatic add on. Ask those who work in the restaurant business and they will tell you the same thing.Those who are stiffing on the ships do the same thing at home and will complain to mgmt. in hopes of getting a free meal.Believe me when I say that this is not the first time for this behavior.
