I would like to know if you do not auto tip at ten dollars per day and I would give tips out at the end of the cruise would I get the same service? Also would a child's tip be ten dollars a day too? thanks, Dee
Yes it's $10 per day for a child too. On our first cruise we passed out envelopes at the end and had the same service as we did with the autotipping we used for the last cruise. It was all great. I found I preferred the autotipping as the last night my husband and I weren't hunting around for the right amounts to put in each envelope.

I do not like the auto tipping and i do not use it. I use the $10.00 per person per day as a guideline. I belive that tips should be earned and not a given. If i receive great service i will tip more, if the service is poor i will tip less.
I think that there is more of an incentive to provide better service if the tips are earned and not just automatic.
