To Quote PapaBill in an earlier post:
"By the time I get to the ship I have almost handed half that amount out in tips anyway.
Long term parking at the airport, tip $5 to the bus driver who handles my luggage . If I use a redcap or curbside check in, another $5. Cab driver or bus driver from airport to hotel another $5. Bellman at the hotel, another$5. Bellman on the way out of the hotel , yes another $5."
Since when do cruisers stay at hotels where they have "Bellmen?" I thought most cruisers stayed at the crummy airport hotels i.e. Red Roof, Holiday Inn, etc. etc.
Give me a break!
