Paul, Does that include the upscale speciliaty restaurents? I usually leave $10 (for 2 people) on the table. I do feel that I'm paying enough ($30 or $35) If the servers are getting some of the surcharge, I'll gladly stop. Jimbo
I am sorry to say that the charge you pay to dine there already includes a service charge so there really is no need to leave an additional tip. Furthermore, anytime you give a tip the server is expected share it with the entire crew, so you $20 just got thrown into a largwer pool.
If you ever want to tip someone personally on a ship, make sure you hand them the cash discretely - personally and in private. And keep in mind ships have many surveillance cameras.
You basically have to palm it to them.
That's the truth folks.
