Default Tipping in Portifino

I'm cruising on Voyager of the Seas and wonder if we dine at Portinfino, what is the policy on tipping. Or is the $20 surcharge part of that? Thanks.

Hi Tuggs,
As far as I know, the $20 charge is to cover any tipping, so go and enjoy!

That is my understanding also, that the extra fee covers the personal attention so no more $$.

As with anything, if the service warrants it, why not tip. We had dinner at Portofino on Brilliance; the service was so outstanding, we were happy to acknowledge it with an extra tip.

It is true the $20. covers the Tip... However Portofinos is truly an experience in dining. The food is fantastic and the service is impecable. We enjoyed eating there twice on our last cruise...and yes we did tip extra...We spend so much money on the cruise why not tip a bit more for people who really know what good service is?

Although the fee covered the tip, the service was so outstanding, we tipped anyway. Best meal of the cruise on Radiance!
