Default How does tipping work?

How do they handle the tipping when there's no assigned seating at meals? Do I take along a pile of change to leave on the table?

On other lines, they charge the tip to your cabin account and take care of paying it out for you. On Windstar, tipping is supposedly optional so they wouldn't know how much to bill you for unless you told them first.

I've hunted around the Windstar site for information, but can't find any.

Default Re: How does tipping work?

Tipping is not required, but suggested for those who give exceptional service. At the deck bar, there were a couple of guys who learned our names, cabin number and favorite drinks within the first day and looked after us the whole time. So we gave them tips at the end of the cruise. There was a particular waiter in the dining room who doted on us as well (and the guys from the bar worked the dining room as well).

So at the end of the cruise we made up some envelopes with name on them containing $15 to $25, depending on their level of interaction with us and handed them around. I think there was about 6 staff that we tipped. It's a small crew and only a few are really interacting with you personally.

From talking with the crew and other passengers, this seemed about normal.
