On our last cruise, tips were added to our charge card. We liked it because it meant we had to carry less cash. We've always found the service to be exceptional on every cruise we've taken and we've always tipped more than the suggested amount. On this last cruise, at the end, we just handed additional cash to our waiters and room steward and others who'd made our cruise wonderful.

I understand the theory of pooling the tips for those individuals behind the scenes who would not be tipped. I question whether our waiters and room steward had to turn in the extra cash to the pool. I hope not because it was our intention for them to keep the money.

I've heard of others who pass out cash during the week and I'm wondering if this might be better and more likely to stay with the ones you want to receive it.

I think your weather will be in the low to mid eighties and sunny most of the time.

You are going to have the time of your life!

Hi Kev,
I am from the Cleveland, OH area and will be on the Navigator Nov. 26. Where are you from? Like you, I am looking for some warm weather and beach time! If its sunny - you will be able to find me at the pool (or in the jacuzzi) and I will be wearing my CruiseReviews baseball cap - stop by and say "hi"/
Nancy

Hello all!
Where did you get that cool countdown clock?
I will be on the Navigator on the 26th. Want to know what to do in Haiti. I would like to get into something with the locals, rather than just the Labadee beach thing. Any suggestions?

Wendi

Wendi,
About the best you can hope for in Labadee is RC's Kayak Adventure. Since this is RC's private beach you do not have access to any part other part of the island. The kayak adventure will at least allow you to explore the bay, but it still isn't "The Real Haitian Experience".
Nancy

ps - Where is Eldorado Springs?

When we were there a few years back, we found the Haitian craft sellers to be very aggressive. They hand you things you don't want, ask what you'll pay for them and then act offended if you don't buy them. The sad thing is that I wanted to buy some crafts but didn't because they were so pushy.

There is a really nice shop behind the craft stalls and those are easy people to chat with. Other than that, I think you should try to meet the locals at some other port. Enjoy the beach at Lebadee.
