Default Re: TIP DILEMMA!!!

A correction Thomas, I think you meant to say that HAL has a "Tipping Not Required" policy, NOT a no tipping policy. As a result of the confusion that people are spreading with the misstatement of the policy, HAL is going to change.

In their announcement of their $225 million "Signature of Excellence" initiative, this statement was made: "In addition, other service enhancements include a convenient folio posting of nominal, optional gratuities, as well as automatic service charge postings to bar-bills, thus simplifying the sometimes confusing cruise tipping system."

This *should* clarify the issue, but until the word is out .... inaccurate rumors will persist ... and the staff will continue to lose out on well-deserved tips.
