Newbie Question
 
On RCCL will our sea pass be automatically charged the tips or do we tell them we want to do tipping this way?

DH doesn't understand prepaying for service he hasn't received yet. What if we receive bad service? Can we adjust the amount we give?

Tips can be automatically charged to your room. If you don't auto pay tips you'll need cash to pay the tips on the last day. Most people auto tip because you don't have to have cash.

You can adjust the amount .

we always auto tip because most of the staff more then earn the tip they get. The 15% on bar charges can't be changed or removed.

Much easier for everyone if you just leave the autotip alone. I have never had service so poor that I would consider removing tips.

So the tips are automaticly put on our account?

Yes , you can add extra on the last day. On one cruise we gave the waiter
an extra tip . The next week we had the same waiter and the service
deteriorated badly .
We did a B2B cruise and requested the same waiter for the next week.
That was a big mistake.
