Just got my tickets today - now the cruise is a reality. I am so excited. Do have one questions. If there are two adults in the cabin, how much do we have to put on the card? Do we each get a card? I am rather confused because there was only room for one credit card info. Thanks for the assistance. Toni
When you get to the pier and do your embarkment, you can each use a different credit card or the same, its up to you. At the end of the cruise all the charges on your sign/sail card will just be billed to the credit card you give them when you first get there. The very last night they will give you a sheet with all the charges and the total, so you know what is being billed to your credit card.
If you opt out of automatic tipping, the people you do tip still have to turn that $$ over to the pool. You can downgrade or upgrade the amounts as you desire.
Automatic tipping was soooo much easier than trying to make sure you have enough cash for everyone at the end. It was a real pain sitting in the cabin trying to dole out money on the last night, put it in the correct envelope, carry it around to find these people then give it to them. I also hate having to have that much cash in my possession at any given time. What a hassle. With automatic tipping, somebody else deals with the logistics.
We pay our tips when we pay for our cruise. That way its all done with before we leave. So not on my sail n sign either. But if we have great service we give cash the last night. or if someone does above and beyond we tip right thee and then. i believe that tips r always earned and would never take them away. Happy cruising.....
