Jerome- Take the "Caps Lock" key off and stop shouting at us... we can hear you just fine
As far as taking off the automatic tips, I have heard that many people do this and also read on this board that many people don't tip at all. I was just wondering how prevelant that practice really is?
We have been on cruise that had the envelopes that you used to manually tip AND also been on the newer cruises where they do this automatic thing. Last cruise I wondered how much tip money they were losing out on because of people who may have left more with the envelope method, now just assume that the automatic amount is good enough?
Frankly, I feel tips should not be automatic. They are for showing appreciation for a job well done.
Anyone actually have any data on how many people don't tip at all?
