Last cruise we took we had 4 people in one room. Next cruise, with kids getting older (bigger) we are opting for 2 rooms.
As tipping is per-person based, tipping would remain the same.
The steward will have to clean 2 rooms yet tipping would remain the same. I appreciate it is not twice the work, but almost.
Just an inequity, I guess.
Also, it seems to me that it doesn't take much longer to serve 4 people as it does 2.
Why would the tips be per person rather than 50%of "the rate" for the third and fourth person. The cruise line charges a significantly reduced rate for a third and fourth person per room - shouldn't it be analogous?
