I am sailing on the volendam nov 1 . if there is no automatic tipping
taken off when you buy a drink? does that means that I have carry loose
change on me at all times to tip them. there must be a easier way of doing
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.

Re: tiping for drinks
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.
