They are from different countries...they send their wages home to family, in many instances...so give them cash...I know that tip is included on some cruise lines...10 bucks a day per person..but some of these people like ..your waiter and room steward..pretty much kiss your booty for seven days..or more...you are being pampered...so give them extra cash if you have it..they do not have room to store gifts etc..they share a very small cabin with other people...Have a good cruise..

I too would not give them gifts, if you are going to give them something as a token of appreciation then giving them cash would probably be the best. I agree. If you do not feel comfortable giving them cash, then just remember that many cruise ships charge a $10 per day per person in each room tipping fee.

The $10 a day (or whatever) is put in a pool ... and any cash they receive on the side is supposed to be put in the pool, too ... at least as far as Princess, Celebrity are concerned.
