Default Tipping on the Fantasy

We will be cruising on the Carnival Fantasy. I am still confused as to whether they add tips automatically. I think we would be more comfortable tipping ourselves, so how does one get the auto tipping removed from the Sail & Sign card?

I was on the Fantasy 10/01. The tips are put on automatically at the end of your cruise (the last night they put the statement under your cabin door). If you want to change any of the tips you have to go to the pursers desk and have them removed. It can be a real hassle on the last day as everyone that has problems with their bill is at the pursers desk and you can look forward to a long wait. I felt the same way on the first cruise I took but in the end opted to just pay it...the difference that I would have given or not given was minimal. We also gave our waiter and extra tip on the last night in addition to the automatic tip. Good luck and have fun.

Thanks so much for the information. It is sad that you cannot "fix" that tip before you sign for whatever it is. Thanks again. Any other tips or information on the Fantasy? Have you written a review I could go read?

I am pretty sure now they deduct the tips at the start of the cruise. So anytime feel free to go and get the tips removed from your s&s card. This way it gives you many more chances to go to the purser's desk. I went on imagination 2/02 and they took tips right off the top of my s&s card.
