Thank you for the examples. They prompt another question, if I may.
You speak of tipping the porter when you deliver the bags, and that's done at the time of service, right? On the other hand, it appears you are tipping the roomservice person(s) in an envelope at the end of the cruise. Or did I misunderstand?
I had envisioned (remember, this is my first cruise, and I'm tee-totally ignorant of the protocols) tipping the room service person when the morning coffee I've ordered is delivered to the room. Is this NOT the way to do it?
Thanks, till sparrows weigh a ton.
