Default Re: Stop the Insanity!

While that may be true for you, the fact remains the cruise ships leaving the U.S. for Caribbean, Canadian, South American ports are staffed by employees dependent (and expectant of ) your tips because the passengers are predominantly American/Canadian. If we were to sail on a ship in the European waters we would expect to do as the European do.

When we are in a foreign country we conduct ourselves according to their customs. And the same should be done in the U.S.
