We always tip extra in cash to our bartenders. To us it has made a difference. Especially to 1 bartender in Particular. It was on Carnival. Eduardo was on his last week of his contract. 4 months later we’re on a different carnival Ship. We were one of the first people on board after the wedding parties etc. We always go to the Red Frog rum bar for our first drink on board. We were about 30 feet from the bar and I Told my wife I think that’s Eduardo from our last cruise. He had seen us and by the time we got to the the bar he had our drinks siting on the bar and welcomed us back on board by our First Names.
That is one heck of a bartender.
