First chance I've had to return to the forum to view replies to my comment on tipping. Responding to PapaBill and Old Man: I made my comment after reading complaints about tipping and poor service on THIS FORUM...I responded with an example of what I know happens in hotels and restaurants in the Caribbean. I certainly am not stupid enough to imply this is what happens on a cruise ship since I've never cruised....re read the post!!!! Duh!!
