AHOY SHIPMATES,IM BOOKED ON DESTINY ON SEPT 16TH 2001.DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A LUANDRY ONBOARD?(FOR PASSENGERS)AND HAS THE NEW TIPPING POLICY TAKEN AFFECT YET,AND DID THE SERVICE CHANGE ANY? I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO READ ANY UPTO DATE REVIEWS OF THIS SHIP AND THE DUTCH TREAT SAILINGS.
Yes there are self service laundries onboard the Destiny. The new tipping policy is in effect but you can if you so desire tip the old fashioned way by going to the pursers office and telling them that is what you wish to do. I haven't been to the Southern Caribbean for a couple years but doubt very much has changed.
What they will do is automatically debt your sail & sign account at the end of the cruise for the recommended amount and distribute it to the crew. This is done automatically and there is nothing you have to do. If you do not choose to do this, you may go to the Pursers Office and tell them that you do not wish your account automatically debted but would rather tip personally. They will provide you envelopes for your tips.
