Default Imperial Majesty's Ike help

The decision of the Imperial Majesty's challenge of helping the workers in Texas is a good one. We sailed on her when she was the Caribe 1 oh so many years ago. Know she is old - but so are we. My question is... how are the staff paid while they are in Texas. Who pays the tips that the staff counts on. Are meals etc. part of the deal? We went through Hurricane Kate in '84 on her and she didn't miss a beat.

Not sure since it's a different company, but the Ecstasy crew were paid a daily rate when they were in NOLA.

Thanks Snoozeman for the reply. We cruise a lot and are always concerned about the crew. Have met so many over the years and are still in touch.
