Default Tipping: $0.75 Alternate Dining Services Staff

Hey all,

I'm kind of confused with the variations between the
Carnival brochure vs. the Carnival web site regarding
their tipping guidelines.
-----------------------------------------------------

In the new Carnival brochure suggests the following
tipping guidelines:

Room Steward - $3.50 per guest per day
Dining Room Team Service - $5.50 per person per day
Alternate Dining Services Staff - $0.75 per person perday

Can anyone tell me what the alternate dining services
staff is? Are these the people that work in the new David's
Supper Club? Or could this be for the people who work in
the Lido Buffet. If this is for the Lido buffet, is this
something new for the people that work in the buffet area?
I seem to recall seeing the same people who worked in the
Dining room also in the Lido Buffet.
-----------------------------------------------------------

If you go to the Carnival web site, this is the guidelines
they suggest for tipping.


Dining Room Waiter: $3.50 per person/per day
Dining Room Busboy: $2.00 per person/per day
Dining Room Maitre d': $0.35 per person/per day
Dining Room Head Waiter: $0.15 per person/per day
Room Steward: $3.50 per person/per day

Other personnel, such as Bar Waiters, Bellboys and Deck
Stewards maybe tipped as service is rendered. 15% of the
bill is automatically added to Sail & Sign beverage
purchases which you may adjust appropriate to the
service received. Gratuities can be prepaid to Carnival
at time of booking or anytime up to two weeks prior to
sailing. These guests will receive three gratuity
coupons per booking with their cruise documents: one for
the Dining Room Waiter; one for the Dining Room Busboy;
and one for the Room Steward.

-------------------------------------------------------------

We are sailing on the Paradise in September, which is on the
auto tipping system, and are trying to figure out which way
we are tipping on, and what the $0.75 alternate dining services
team charge is?

Anyone that has some insight that could clear up our cunfusion,
would be greatly appreciated.

Talk Soon
