In preparing my cruise budget, I want to be 100% sure to allot extra tips to those who deserve them. (In addition to the tips included in our account automatically, of course!)
I know that Carnival still distributes the traditional money packet for distribution to the cabin steward, maitre'd, etc. if desired
1) how many of these extra packets does one receive?
2) is it proper to simply leave the tip in the room with a nice thank you note attached, or is it better to hand it to whomever? I don't want to embarrass anyone by handing them a tip envelope if that's not proper etiquette.
Just silly little pedantic questions...
