We asked our waiter about the prepaid tips and he told us he would get it in a couple of months, where as they use to get it on the last night of the cruise. We were on the Imagination the first of the month. We did not prepay our tips but on a 4 day cruise they charged 39.00 a person for the tips this included all except the maitre'd and he ended up not getting a tip from a lot of people because people didnt read the carnival caper about him not being included in the tips charged to your sign and sail card. In the past there were envelopes for everyone to be tipped so when you were getting the tips straight you had the maitre'd in hand to. They did leave a envelope for him but we forgot and I heard other people talking about this too. That is when we asked our waiter if he would get his tip and thats when he told us in a couple of months.
