It is customary to give $1 - $2 per bag and it's probably a good idea to do so.

The interesting thing is that these porters are not cruise line or ship employees. They are dock workers (longshoremen) and most are doing this to pick up extra money. The person you are tipping is probably making a high five or low six figures in income.

Take care,
