Find the luggage missing a little hard to swollow. There's just no way with the thousands of pieces of luggage that they could single out the luggage to mysteriously disappear. We always ask when traveling on a new ship, just how the tips are handled, and have not found one yet where they pool tips. Cabin stewards give a portion of their tips to their helpers who clean bathrooms and vacuums. These people are working their way up to becoming Cabin Stewards. We always give both something extra, depending on the length of the cruise. People appear so against tipping. Do you go into a restaurant and walk out without tipping? I don't think so.
