Was on this cruise. Many took tips off as they got off in Long Beach on thursday. Many more took tips off and delivered tips personally to their wait staff and room sterards. I aee nothing wrong with this.
I know many people who did the latter for their tipping. I agree those who stiffed the crew are wrong. But to just ASSUME that because tips were removed that they are bad people is wrong.
Our friends removed their tips due to things that happened on the lido deck. But the last night they tipped their wait staff over and above what they had to. They did the same with their room steward. Now these may be the few and far between but I will not judge people like so many here have.
