i tried to do a search on this board for my question, but couldn't pull anything up. sorry if it's a repeat quesiton that's been answered 1,000 times!
i haven't sailed in 2 years. since the last time i cruised i understand that Carnival does prepaid gratuities now through your sail and sign. this seems like it's alot easier for most folks, but i've always enjoyed leaving a personal note for each waiter/room steward etc. with a little something extra for them in their tip envelopes. sometimes i've even bought them a special thank you card in port to leave with their tips. how do i go about not having these charges put on my card so that i can tip them personally? or does this look bad to have it taken off?
