That is a very long winded way of saying 'I'm opting out of the Auto Tip & paying whom & how much, I wish', which is what most Brits have been doing for years. Certainly on this planet anyway!
I don't know why everyone gets so caught up with the issue of automatic tipping haveing been on the beautiful sea princess a few days ago we found people who had opted out of these tips and tipped their room steward and waiters at the end of the cruise we kept our charges on i know it sounds alot for kids and i would agree that if i was taking kids on board i probably would stop their tips but remember this the service is astounding and i truely mean that nothing is too much trouble, also prices on board are very good the duty free shops are cheaper for beauty products than in duty free on land. if you are going to opt out of the tips just tell a member of staff at the pursers desk and they will remove it without any question,enjoy your cruise i didn't want to go home!but remember the staff that are making your cruise so enjoyable work really hard and don't see their families for about 10 months at a time many men don't see their new babies until their a few months old.
Thanks for your comments.
We will be tipping but to an amount we feel is REASONABLE.
Bored to tears with all this tipping or not to tip. either pay or dont you do have the choice but please dont bore us all to death with the maths of it .
Dear bored to tears,
You missed the point.
It is not to tip or not to tip, but what is a reasonable tip
Dear reasonable tipper tip whae4ver you think is reasonable to you.hardly think its rocket science.yawn yawn still bored to tears .
I agree with you that this is hardly rocket science. That’s why I applied Elementary Maths to try to make a point.
Please let us know which liners you intend to use so we dont.
Thank you. You would be doing me a favour.
I just can't be bothered to enter into this debarcle except to say You have gone an awful long way just to give another reason for not paying that which is expected. ... Neil.
