I am due to sail on the Spirit in December for 11 days from New York. A Few questions. I like to tip for a good service and I believe that the old style tipping was better as you could give more to staff who served you well. Can you cancel the $10 per day per person that they put on your account and tip accordingly. Next Question is can ladies wear capri pant/cut of trousers in the evenings? We are going to be situated on deck 11 in a balcony cabin do they have coffee makers in the cabins. We are now in the process of trying to find a good hotel pre cruise and post cruise in New York any recommendations would be appreciated. Also if anyone can recommend who to take shore excursion with that too would be appreciated.
