I agree with Paul. I just don't understand what the big deal is? I've been cruising for 18 years and I have always tipped. Not one cruise (32) have I felt the need, not to tip. We used to bring cash that was set aside for tipping and now, we add it too our ship board account. We still bring more money if we feel that our serving staff or room steward ect. did an exceptional job.
Please folk's........tip these hard workers.
