Default No tip required- honest

Returned from a Western Caribbean cruise on the Rhapsody two weeks ago. Had a great week, nice ship and great staff on board. At port in Grand Cayman we took the Submarine Expedition with Atlantis- had been to Stingray City last year. We saw plenty of fish and a big, big turtle but the part that surpirsed me most was the crew didn't solicit for tips at anytime in the trip. And the worst part was they were great and we wanted to tip them! sure was a nice change.

sounds great, that's the way it should be, no soliciting for tips.

Wow- that is unusual! I can understand your wanting to give them "something" since you were treated so well

I'm so tired of seeing large signs on tour buses asking for tips.
