I think more and more people will be doing the same until things change.Some of the mistrust is fuelled by information like ccc666 gave, who seemed either to be a member, ex-member of staff or close to someone who is and presented a picture of PO and its treatment of staff viz a viz AG's that was not very flattering to PO to say the least and did more than insinuate that PO did not pass all the money over and informed us how PO weaponised AG's tying them to CSQ's.
It’s funny that there is such an apparent level of distrust about where the money goes with P&O auto tips that is not refelected in other lines. We sail with several lines and some auto tip but there is not the same discussion and certainly no letters etc to customers who remove, if indeed many do.
The auto grats have been around for a while but the issues are much more recent. New demographic of cruisers who won’t be told what to do and if they don’t have to tip then they simply won’t?
Maybe on US lines where they take tipping much more for granted they simply pay because they are used to it and PO being used by Brits who are not so used to tipping and ask a lot of questions.
I didn't know this... where did they say/write this please?https://boards.cruisecritic.com/show...&postcount=516
