Default Carnival Destiny

Here is a question for cruisers who have taken the Destiny in the past 30 days.How many envelops did they leave in your cabin on the last night and who was each of them for?? I would like to have my tips set aside before i get to the ship.

Thanks, kenholt

Kenny:
Can't remember the envelope count, but if you look in the back few pages of the Carnival brochure it will address the issue of tipping. (Who and how much). You will find the answere to your question there. Of coarse that is the recommended tipping guide. If you had outstanding service that week you may choose to leave a larger tip. Have a great cruise!

It been since Jan that I cruised on the Destiny. They leave envelopes for everyone and thier next door neighbor **
I dont tip all the dining room staff unless they have done some thing extra special.
Example.. Head waiter... Matre D...
The most important is the 3... Cabin steward.. Waiter.. and bus boy..

Kenny,
I was on the Destiny in May. You get three envelops. One for the cabin steward, head waiter and assistant waiter. They recommend that each person give the steward $25 (that would be $50 if you are traveling with someone else), the head waiter gets $25 per person and assistant waiter gets $14 per person. Those are recommeded prices, you can give more if you want. I would set aside at least $70 for tips.

It's totally not $24.50 per day per person...that sounds a little obsurd! You have to tip your head waiter, cabin steward & assistant waiter. The maitre'd is optional. Basically it will cost a couple $50 for their cabin steward, $50 for their head waiter, $28 for the assistant waiter for the entire week. The maitre'd is optional.
