Cruise: Carnival Spirit
Purchased two large oatmeal cookies for two dolllars to which was added 15% gratuity.
Drank two bottles of wine from the stateroom refrig. The bottles cost $4.75 each which was o.k. but 15% gratuity was added. I understood that the room steward was in complete charge for the liquor and beverages in the frig. so who gets the gratuity?
We were billed $80 per person for the 8 day cruise that was supposed to go to the waiters and room stewards. Are these minor charges mentioned simply another way the cruise client is making money ?
