Fern, yes, as soon as it dawned on me she was from UK, I realized she wasn't used to the tipping, debarkation, etc we are. When we cruised the Jewel last fall a large number of the passengers were from UK, second only to US. Many we became friends with were from England and all were really fun, but they did admit having problems with the cost of wine especially and the tipping. They never thought of not doing it, but still were a little uncomfortable. Most of them had traveled a great deal. We also ran into a few others who were really appalled at the prices. These were some who were not regular cruisers. NMnita
