Default Cruise ship massages

Does anyone know if the massage staff work on commission alone? I've been hearing this and didn't know if it were true. Also, what does anybody tip on a 50 minute $119 massage? I just looked at the pricing for services to my upcoming cruise and "OUCH". Thanks and enjoy your day!

They are on a salary, but earn a commission on products sold. My wife usually tips $15 to $20 (close to 15%).

I usually keep an eye out for the specials offered in the daily planner. Most days there is a $99 special so if I'm already getting the discounted price 10-15tip if it was good isn't as painful

...best way to loose a tip with me is to try and sell me crap after my service. I just spent $100 and an hour getting a massage now your gonna try and hassle me to buy some lotions? Tip cut in half lol

Good point. Maybe I will let them "lend" me the product and if it works days after, I'll come back and buy it, otherwise NO SALE $$$$$. Hmmmmmm what a concept!
