Hi. I read a post somewhere that we should tip person when we give them our luggage when we arrive. Is this correct or do we tip them when they bring it to our room? Although we may not see them bring it to our room right?
Right they are. If you pack the bag that the lovely Mrs. Jones formally packed, (I hid it from her and bought two smaller ones) you should tip a bit more! Other than that, just $1 per bag. It's your room steward who brings the bags to your cabin I think. You tip him at the end of the cruise.
Happy sailing, and enjoy
I believe the ships deck hands generally deliver the bags to the cabins and probably any other crew that is available, The room stewards are usually busy meeting guests, and giving out instructions and fielding complaints. If I am in my room when bags are delivered I will give those hard workers a few dollars.
