retiredbrit Posted October 17, 2006 #1 Share Posted October 17, 2006 We are on the Mercury over Christmas and New Year. Can someone who has been on a Christmas cruise answer this? Is it usual to give the waiters and cabin attendant a small gift on Christmas Day? We always go away at Christmas and New Year, sometimes here in the UK or in mainland Europe either to a hotel or on a land tour where it has not been the practice. Reading the CC boards of the mainly US ships that members go on, it seems to me that cruising is probably different. I have already decided that a small gift for the cabin attendant would be right but don’t want to be the odd one out if all table mates have gifts for the waiter. Not in place of their tips of course! regards Alan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
