We are sailing on Infinity March 17th. We do want to eat in the alternative restaurant, understand it will be $25, what I am wondering are tips included in the $25?

Tips are included in the $25 dinner fee in Millennium's beautiful restaurant. But wait till you see the cost of wine here. The least expensive GLASS is $13. In one course, with veal, they recommend a $72 glass of wine. I didn't ask what a glass of seltzer costs

I personally liked the system used by Royal Olympic wherein you left one large amount for all and it was divided up according to the rules of the Greek union. It also could be charged to the credit card. Bar service and room service tips were paid at the time of service. Simple and effective
