Default Prepaid tips


I have a question. If you do prepaid tips, how does this work when you buy a drink? Do they add their tip to the bill and then it gets removed during final billing? Can you use your $50 on board credit for tips? It's my first cruise and just getting in some questions.

Thank you

The pre-paid tips does not include the tip for drinks at bars or by the pool, etc. The pre-paid tips is for your wait staff and house cleaning...They will add a percentage of the drink as the tip for every drink...Your purchases while on board will go on the credit card you provided when you boarded, and yes, your onboard credit can be used against what you purchase on the ship, including drinks, excursions, etc.
