If you don't tip, bad things will happen to you forever. That's all.

The cruiseline and it's employees will do nothing to you. Hopefully though your concious will haunt you forever.

Your table mates will loathe you, and treat you like the cheap skate you are! They then will band together and make up your missing tip, because they feel bad for the wait staff.
Take my word for it, it happened to us on several occasions
The non-tippers were usually the most demanding, which made us even more furious.

If you have any conscience at all, you'll find it somewhat difficult to sleep at night. Otherwise, there'll be no consequences whatsoever.

On the last morning the captain will get on the p.a. system and say something to the effect of this:

" Good morning ladies and gentlemen. This is the captain speaking from the bridge. I have a list of the stiffers ( non-tippers ) and their cabin numbers that I will now read. "

At the completion of his list boos and hisses will be heard from all but a few and those few will have very red faces.

ssatterly...

I hope you wouldn't even consider not tipping.

But my question is, why would you even ask that question if you didn't have the thought of not tipping?

In a perfect world you would get terrible service if you don't tip, but unfortunately the staff don't know you're going to stiff them & they treat you like gold the whole cruise anyway.

Their Families in the Phillipines and Nicaragua will go hungry for a month. That's about it. And you might rot in Hell. No biggie.

Why dont they just add it to the cruise fare and let these workers make a living wage?
I would cheerfully pay more to cruise knowing they didnt have to prance around for a little something, and if they have to many complaints about service reprimand them like any other employer would.

If you don't tip your hair will turn gray and you face will wrinkle.
