Hi Earl,
Tips are added on to the price of the drink and will go on your sign and sail card, so you don't need that extra cash.

Sorry Donna.. Earl is talking about HAL, where tips are NOT added to the cost of the drinks.
Unfortunately they do not even allow you to add a gratuity to the bar tab when you sign it, which would be much more convenient.

So.. you end up either carrying a bunch of singles around with you for tipping the bartenders, or at week's end reward your favorite bartenders and servers.

Thanks Kuki,
For clearning that up, I thought the drink tips were different.

IMHO, HAL needs to change this. Why should someone have to carry money around to tip while on the ship; or why should someone have to hunt down a server on the last day to tip them? Of course, the HAL loyalists don't think this way - and it is the servers who suffer for it in the end.
