  1. I am travelling with a friend and she wants to leave tips on.i however like to give them in person. That is my choice.I always wonder if they no I have paid auto tips if I don’t give them anything in person.Yes I do give extra if I have received good service and I certainly don’t have to curtail my spending to do this
  2. The price for our drinks package was £38 per day.we did not pay any extra for service charge.cruising from Southampton
  3. Before the days of prepaid tips you had a guideline of who to tip and how much.i believe it was room steward,waiter.assistant waiter and maitre d.no mention of any other staff.As they all got different amounts I can only assume they were not pooled.i As stated in my post we will leave one lot of tips on and use envelopes for the rest as I like the personal touch.i agree if you can afford to cruise you can afford to tip.i think if the system was not working then rc would do the same as a lot of the other cruislines and include it in the fare,which would certainly stop any more threads like this one
  4. Well of course everyone has there own opinion and it is a very emotive subject.however I also liked the old way of the envelopes and will continue to tip in this way,
  5. Thank you for your prompt answers sylvia
