Default Re: 10 Dollars a Day Per Person?

I was horrified when I found out about this policy. For a family of 4 that adds a completely unexpected $300 to our cruise costs. I don't begrudge anyone a decent tip and I have heard the service is wonderful, but $35 a day - sheesh! That's some pretty generous tipping. And if you figure each person waits on a number of families each day and receives a portion from each, that isn't a tip, that is their SALARY!

I think the cruise lines discount the cruise price as low as they can and then tack on these "extras" after the fact to make up the difference. I am still totally excited about our cruise, but finding out about these unexpected costs has taken the shine off it a bit.
