Default Tips for special young workers

Most of the workers are young and very far from home, and just the look on their faces when you hand them the envelope with the note on it makes the cruise even more special to me.

We were talking with one of our stewards, a young girl who was also very far from home and had not had a day off the ship in six months. It seems that she loved chocolate but the staff was not allowed to eat the chocolates they leave on the pillows. We bought her several chocolate bars and a tin of hard fruit candy. This very small gesture actually brought tears to her eyes. It only takes a small act of kindness to those special people who make our cruises so speacial.
