Default Re: Holland America Tipping/ new

I have first hand knowledge that when automatic tipping is apply,
service goes down hill. before automatic tipping I was seeing my cabin steward
one the first day.He would introduce himself and ask me if I wanted any thing
special. NOW I don't see him practicaly the whole cruise. I didn't know his
name. enough the service the at dinnertime wasn't the same. IN nov/04
I will tell the purser to take the automatic tipping off. I will tip them according to the
service I get from them. I have nothing against tipping , I just want them to earn it.
