Interesting. I'm getting prices on a cruise now, and I noticed that it said gratuities included. I thought maybe this was a promotion from the TA and was wondering how that would work.
This what the link says
Available Promotions (restrictions apply):
Free Tips and Dining!
So much like tips that are auto-charged to your shipboard account, if the tips are now part of your fare - we will just get vouchers on the last night to include?
