Additional tipping


Recommended Posts

Wife and I do. If we have the same MDR server throughout the cruise, we typically will slip then about $20 at the end of the cruise. We've done more on a couple of occasions. Pretty much always leave stateroom attendants the same. 

 

Is it required? Of course not. But these staff members don't get paid a huge amount and they're often times sending all the money they get back home to people that don't have a lot. We've been blessed and it's important to share those blessings with those that bring you joy.

Thank you for your response.  Even though it is not required, we normally always leave extra also but didn't want to leave an amount that was not enough and with the tips that are automatically deducted, by the time they are divided among everyone it really isn't very much.

Usually leave a extra $20 per week for the cabin steward.  We skip about half the MDR dinners as we do specialty dining, leave the auto tips in place for MDR waiters and give $10 or so for specialty waiters each meal.  Always give a dollar per drink ordered, even in the DL. happy cruising
