I'm pretty sure that you tip the traditional way on Enchantment, with envelopes at the end of the cruise. Just follow the suggested amounts and have then ready and put aside. You should have a safe in your cabin, where you enter a combination. We also have the tips all set and just leave in the safe until the last evening, works out great.
So, when is your Enchantment cruise?
You may also want to read through the "new cruiser" section here at Cruisemates, lots of good info and tips:
I sailed the enchantment on feb 1st 2001, I paid all of my tips with sail and sign card at the pursers desk two days before the last night. There will be updates and time frames in your newsletter that come out every night.
Thanks for the responses guys... this board is soooo much NICER than those other guys!
By the way:
Donna: We're leaving 12/8 for Eastern Caribbean
Ernie: I did not mean to insinuate Enchantment is old by any means!!! I just have heard that the newer ships (Voyager, Explorer) have different ways of doing things, such as buying shore excursions from the tv in your room. I didn't know if those newer ways of doing things included the tipping thing as well.
We just came back from the Enchantment. We had them add it to the room charge, It came to $136.50, which is cheaper then what we normally tip. We got excellent service without tipping everyday. In fact we had such superior service in the dining room we added a little extra to thier envelopes. It was well worth it in my book.
