"Another great point Paul. All that singing and dancing on Carnival has turned me off frm even going to the dinner."
I agree wholeheartedly, gogetter.
I didn't notice a difference in service between ships that had autotipping and ships that didn't, but I do see your point, Paul, and have wondered about it.
It's funny that on the Carnival ships with autotipping, you might get poor service, while on the ships where tips are included in the price of the cruise, such as Radisson, service is generally regarded to be far superior.
