Glad to see your going on the Pride. We are going on Oct. 12 ,2002. On our last cruises we played it by ear. Some gets more and some gets less. The person who takes care of your room is the one we give a little to at first and it seems all goes great. Ice. water hair dryer towles and whatever. Main dinning we only eat there a couple of time on short cruises and don,t over tip there. We play it by ear.
