The service people who work for tips, do not get any part of our fare, therefore the tips are for them, that is how they make money. Where would you get the idea that they get any part of our cruise fare??
I know tipping is a sore subject for you, but here, when we cruise we pay the tips either through automatic tipping or the old fashioned way, with cash at the end of the cruise. Either way, you can add or deduct depending on the service you receive, its very simple.
