The tips are automatically added to each drink, but it never hurts to ask when you sit down.

I wouldn't adjust me tip because I'm not fond of spit in my drink.

Yes, they will add a 15% tip on to your drink order, no way around that, then it goes on your sign and sail card.

How much do they hold on your account ? Is it just for the tips?

Thanks,

You don't tip your bartender when you go to a bar? While in college a lot of my friends tended bar - and most of them worked for a "shift pay" of maybe 15 bucks for a 5 hours shift and relied solely on tips for the rest of their income.

Bartenders work hard - throwing them an extra 15% seems worth it. I do understand where your coming from though - I hate being forced to tip... a tip should be an amount I decide on based on level of service. Nothing bothers me more than when I go to a restaraunt with more than 6 people and the decide the tip for me.

Okay - this subject still confuses me....When I see a price for a drink on a menu or something on the ship, will the 15% be inlcluded in that price, or does knowing how much you are spending while drinking involve math on a cruise?

Hi CArey,
No, the 15% will be added on to the drink price.

I always look at it this way..... The 15% rule saves me tipping money because it works out less then what I would tip for a single drink at a bar when I'm not on a cruise.
Have a great cruise all!!

Ugh!! That doesnt seem very reasonable! Just make the drink cost 15% more I say. For those math-challenged like me, I broke out the old calculator and a 4.95 drink will REALLY cost you 5.70. Wow!
