I am a professor at the Cornell Hotel School and am doing research on cruise ship tipping. I am hoping someone can help me. One of the things I need to learn is when each of Carnival's ships moved from traditional tipping to automatic or pre-paid tipping. Different ships made the move at different times and I need to know when the move was made for each ship. If you can shed light on this, please let me know.
Mike: I'm not sure you will find the specific information you are looking for here. Maybe contacting Carnival directly might help.
