Default Who is NOT included in pretipping.

Oh, I'm so sorry, I'm sure this has been asked, but I cant find it and don't have the time to keep looking.

Question: I already prepaid my tipping. I know that does not include the porters, (dollar per bag) or the guy that brings room service or extra charge restaurants of course. SO Is there anyone else I have to tip, that is not included in the pretippping?

Plus will the dining room know I pretipped or think I'm being rude?

We are cruising same time--different places!!! We are going to Alaska. They will know you have paid but not sure about prepaid. We use the envelopes they pass out and write a short thank you note in it assuring them we left their tip on our account. As for others to tip, if you have children using Camp Carnival you could tip the counselors.

Have a great time!!

Trust me, they know who tips and who does not tip.. Don't worry about it. If you pre-tip that's good.. The staff gets a print out of tips and they will just love you for it.. In fact you may get better service because they know that you have already paid them..OM
