Default Tipping the porter

When the porter brings my luggage to my room, how much should I tip per bag? I thought it was $1 per bag, and if there's two I would give $3. What do people normally do? I have not traveled on a cruise in a long time and perhaps I need to update my standards.

Hi New Cruiser,
You would actually tip the porter at the pier when giving them all your luggage, usually a buck or 2 per bag. Lots of times, you are not even in your cabin when it gets dropped off and you never know when that would be.

What ship are you on?

Hi, new ...

As Donna says, tip the porter at the pier. Just say "Thank you" if you happen to see the person who delivers the luggage to your cabin.
