Default Tippping concierge

I know this totally dumb but here goes: If you choose to tip the butler, concierge, etc. up front before the cruise how do you go about doing this? Just hand them an envelope or what?

That would be the way. I normally tip at the end. I have tipped the minimum in the beginning and extra at the end if earned.

They'll happily take the money even if it's not in an envelope


I actually won't tip in advance. I prefer to wait to see if the service provided is worthy of a tip, and how good it is will determine how much I give.

another thought about waiting, especially when tipping the concierge, usually how much one is going to tip depends on how much we depend on him or her. Sometimes there isn't any reason to use the concierge or very little reason. We have tipped as little as nothing and as much as $50.00.
