Default Re: Watch out for ripoffs on Carnival I just got back from G

The problem is the help in the lido deck are those same busboys from the main dinning who are being double tipped. I thought these jobs were non service jobs and it seems to me we are just subsidizing the salaries of these workers. Please check CCL website under tipping.
On our cruises on both RCL & HAL , our dining room steward was doing
three jobs a day . One job (dining room steward) was paid.
The other two where not paid . they would normally get about
5 hrs sleep a night . They could only get ashore every second or third
port. To call or internet home was same cost as the passengers.

SS Ithaca , Volendam , Mariner of the Seas (x2) , Veendam , Coral Princess , Island Princess (x3) , Emerald Princess,Sapphire Sapphire (x3),Diamond Princess
