does RCCL add tips to account?
 
Hi,
I noticed Carnival adds tips to the guests accounts. Does RCCL do this or should I have enough cash for tips?

On RCI you'll get a notice sent to your cabin asking if you want tips added to your onboard account.

If you do, you fill it out, and turn it in to guest relations. They'll then leave vouchers for the tips for you to put in the envelopes to hand to the staff.

Kuki is correct... I do think that in the future RCCL will do away with the vouchers and will just put it on your S&S card. This would cut down on work for them and it would also help cut down on the stiffs that do not tip.. We will see... OM

Thanks ! I like to give cash because I used to clean rooms and getting a cash tip is fun. Putting on the S&S is also nice because its easy.
I think the staff seemed less personal on Carnival after they initiated the automatic S&S program but I don't blame then wanting to avoid the cheap folks. Its harder to be cheap when you have to go to the pursors desk to reduce the tip. Plus I bet there are some people who can afford it easier if they can put it on there credit card.

On RCCL and Celebrity, among other lines, any cash you hand out must be turned in to the "tip pool" and the money is divided up according to job classification. I don't think that it is right, the lines have made it impossible to reward service people for "above and beyond" service. Jimbo

Jimbo Bost... You are correct, but this is the way it is going to be.. It's the only way the cruise lines can get money out of the stiffs..OM
