I always have my PVP add the gratuities to my bill before we go so I can have everything prepaid. It makes me feel better and keeps me more caught up with my spending budget. BTW I always bring extra cash to tip for RS and excellent service where needed.
We didn't put any $$ on our sail and sign for the first cruise. When we checked in the lady kept saying you need to add money. I kept saying but were not buying anything so do I have to? Eventually, she said no, but that I would not be allowed to purchase anything unless there was some $$ on the account. (We had $75 of OBC so I knew we'd be good.) We aren't big drinkers and we even got a check at the end of the cruise for $$ not spent! I felt like I got paid to cruise!
