Default Re: Porters.....to tip, or not to tip?

After a whole bunch of cruises (over 100), we've never had a problem with the porters. More often than not, they are friendly, and helpful, and I too consider it a bargain to NOT have to carry all the stuff the lovely Mrs. Jones packs all the way to the cabin. We get the tip in hand just before arriving at the port, (usually $1 per bag), and hand it to the porter, with a smile, as we hand him our bags. Works for us!
Happy sailing,
Ken
