Default They are worth every dollar

Just back from the Carribean Princess and cannot believe how wonderful. The staff is what makes a cruise so memorable and they deserve a nice big tip for all their work. They were always friendly and helpful and we tipped them daily, mostly the steward and wait staff. They treated us like royalty. However, they treated everyone that way. A wonderful trip.

I couldn't agree with you more, they really do work hard for their dollars. I've never had a problem giving at least the minimum in tips, we sometimes add more if needed.

I agree Vawterf,This reminds me of the commercial of the guy who thinks he is the ONLY person treated special,and the lady tells him we treat everyone this way.Love his facial expression when he says like "sure you do" but,these HARD working people really do treat EVERYONE special.
