Cruise Ship Travel Tip #23 – Tips
More about tips – Other than room and board and a very small paycheck tips are the only salary the workers receive and they do work extremely long and hard. Please be sure to have extra cash on hand at the end of the cruise for just this purpose. You can charge your tips to your credit card if you want, in fact many cruise ships automatically charge them to your Ship Credit Card account unless you tell them not to. I recommend giving them cash because it’s more convenient for the workers. If you do allow the ship to add the tips to your on board account, you should at least give them a little extra in cash if they’ve done a good job. Envelopes will be provided in your room on the next to last day of the cruise for you to hand the money to them on the last evening. If you divide your tips out ahead of time it will save you from running for change on the last night of the cruise. Remember the room steward and waiter each receive a minimum of $3.50 per day and the assistant waiter receives $2.50 per day. You can give the maitre de’ or “Head Waiter” a total of about 50 cents a day but only if he spends time making sure your meals are perfect. Another time you should tip is if you orde

    been working for Princess Cruises couple years ago; thank you doesn’t really matter if you are working 11 – 16 hours a day. You become a robot and don’t really care that much for appreciacion. Sounds strange but that’s the way it is especially if you concider the real length of contracts – my all four contracts were longer than 8 months, believe it or not.

    Oh, and before you …
    Oh, and before you give a tip to head waiter or maitre’ de you should realize that the guy earns around $2000 a week, at least on my vessels they didn’t go below this amount. So maybe find somebody who had been working hard to make your holiday this special time but at the same time doesn’t earn more than you do 😉
