On our last cruise, which was also our first one, hubby would give the bartenders a tip for each drink. It wasn't any great amount, but after a while they started charging for about a third of the drinks ordered. Has anyone had this experience on Carnival?
It's been a while since I've last cruised, but it has always been my understanding that a 15% tip is automatically added into your bar tab. You pay for the tip along with your tab at the end of your cruise. Now I dont know about the drink charges. I've never noticed anything different, but I just wondered why your tipping if you will be charge 15% in the end?
