Default Celebrity Tipping

Can someone please tell me if Celebrity does the auto tipping thing like Carnival. We are planning a cruise on the Century in may. We just got off the Destiny in Jan, and didn't like the auto tipping policy at all. The service was definitely different then with our past Carnival cruises that didn't have the auto tipping policy.

Thanks Bob

Bob,

The answer is No. On Celebrity you use the envelopes

I wasn't aware that carnival had started the auto tipping. The last cruise on carnival we used the envelopes. but maybe they have changed. I know we went on a norwegian cruise and they did have the auto tipping. I felt like we didn't get the same quality of service as we have had in the past, when the service personel were tipped according to the service that they provided. I will not cruise on Norwegian because of this. Our next cruise is in Oct on celebrity century.

I have used both ways of tipping and like thie auto take out. I was using the envelopes in a hurry on one ship and somehow lost $200.00. maybe dropped in the trash!! with the auto you don't have a worry about the tip that you are going to give anyway they save you the worry of doing it.Don wrote:
