I will be sailing on the Carnival Paradise, Aug. 29th, and need to know what will be charged for each person, besides the tipping. Is there a charge for room service? using any facility in the ship? Please respond.
Thank you,
Laura

room service is a freebie you can tip the steward if you want we did on some of the cruises as they were always prompt and served us and were quite friendly but I don t think the expect it. been on 5 cruises and tipped room service when I felt like it. when you say facilities what are you asking about? massages and facials hair salon, you pay extra for, give you a little hint tho on deck by main pool they sometime set up massage table on deck to entice the folks to sign up for massages and they charge a very small fee on deck if you are one of the few lucky ones that sign up on deck the massage's are very expensive on board. I got one on the beach in Cozumel for 20.00 for 25 minutes it was great

Actually, I would suggest that you do tip for room service. It is not required and they won't have their hand out, but since they are performing a special service a dollar or two is greatly appreciated. There is often an additional charge for special exercise classes like Pilates, and there is an expectation that you tip the masseuse, hair stylist, etc. for such personal services. Be aware that a tip is already added to any bar service (including wine purchases at dinner) so do not tip extra. Hope those tips help - If I think of any others I will share them.

The other 2 responses pretty much said it all...what I wanted to say was you are going to love the paradise...we went on it in May and it is awsome....I hate the fact that it will soon be a smoking ship...the fact that there is no smoking on it is great...one of the best cruises I have been on...in Belize if you get a chance do the tubing...it is great...have a great cruise...we are doing the Destiny next April out of San Juan and are really looking forward to that cruise...
