Default gifts for the crew?

Besides tipping, have any of you given additional gifts to you cabin attendant, waiter, etc? any suggestions? I hear some give phone cards, but can't these be tricky to use internationally? Maybe $$ is best. Thanks for any input. Karen

I think $$'s are the best. Joanne had a birthday and we asked our wait staff to join us eating the cake, which they seemed to really appreciate.

I've never been on a cruise myself, but maybe you could try the phone card, and also give them something else just in case the phone card dosn't work well internationally.

Our steward was a smoker, so we bought a carton of Marlboros on the ship, and maybe some liquor, I can't remember. This in addition to the tips of course. I think we asked him what he would like, that we were heading for the store and we were going to buy him something, so he just told us! That worked fine!

We have been told by other people that we know that have sailed that they bought snacks and packed them to bring on the boat. Things like candy and oreos. Things that they can enjoy without having to purchase themselves.
