Default Re: Holland America Tipping/ new

"We also asked when birthdays were, bought a few birthday cards and once again gave gifts not gratuities."

I love this idea. Tip pooling drives me nuts. It means I really have no decision making power... if I tip one person more than recommended and one person less (for less than acceptable service) and then they have to pool the tips and divide them, why should I tip more? I might bring some generic birthday cards with me in July... and give some gifts. I think I may even have some Xmas cards somewhere....
