Although tipping is mandatory on HAL, I always give the waitstaff and stewards a little extra. After speaking with them, I learned that they spend MONTHS working on the cruises and they don't see their family for 3-4 months at a time. It's sad.. I really take pride in giving them a little extra money to bring home when they finally do get to see their families.
