I can only speak from my experience on Costa in Europe and what I have been told by staff who work on board. I suppose that 1049 euro a month seems a lot compared to $50 but considering that they now receive no TIPS,were as in the past they could easily make over 2500 a month in tips alone that still does not explain where all of that extra money is going. From what I see we, the passengers are paying 100% of the salary and the company gets to keep the extra money collected from the passenger, so in effect they get to increase their profit without it effecting the advertised price of the cruise. I still say that this is taking money under false pretences as the passengers are under the impression that the staff are getting this money.
