Gratuities for Children
We booked our 9 day cruise with RC back in October. I just paid the balance today and asked if there was any chance we could reduce the daily charges for 3 small children and was told that all charges were compulsary. I pointed out that their website stated that changes can be made pre departure but representative didn't know of this. When I pushed I was told that it might be possible to change the amounts by asking the purser on board. When we booked the cruise gratuties were optional! One of the reasons we went with RC. Now it's going to take a bite out of parents budget to pay $60.00 per day for a 9 day cruise. Have cruised for years, don't have a problem with the daily charge, but think some leaway should be made for families with small children.
