Demere - Answered a Question by Roberts (02 Oct 08 13:14)

No I dont agree why should we pay more gratuties because we stay in a suit.?? Then should we who stay in a suit say ohh do we really need to share this ship or restaurant with the passangers in the standards cabins? We actually get the same "service" we pay for the same food and the cruise to its the same. The diffrent is that we in the suits pay for a larger cabin and belive me I guess that people in the suits they actually pay more gratuities. So I dont se why we should pay for the same extra that other get who have a inside cabin.

Thanks for your comment.To be honest a lot of the people who do stay in suites (not all) do seem to exude that air that they would rather not share the facilities with the rest of us anyway.As regarding gratuities what makes you guess that people staying in suites pay more than the rest of us?I think it is exactly the opposite, because they have paid more for there cabins they tend to be very demanding of the staff and get upset more easily if things are not to their liking.

Passengers in suites do pay more gratuities than those in normal staterooms. I suspect you are just trying to start yet another gratuities argument and I hope no one joins in..........

We paid extra gratuities on our sky suite on the Azamara Journey. Remember that we paid extra to have a suite in the first place. We were also very happy to pay gratuities on this ship as we received excellent service from all the staff on board.

Can't come along with you on this one, most suite occupants pay more in tips and most cabins are more or less the same size apart from balcony cabins who pay more for the privilege. The other point is that we all eat in the same places so why should someone then pay less. Sorry this just won't fly, regards. .... Neil .

Gratuities or Tips are supposed to be given for services rendered that one thinks are worthy of recognition. It is ones personal choice as to how much extra 'reward' one should give to whomever you believe deserves it. How therefore can you dictate to individuals, how much and to whom anyone 'rewards'. If you are referring to set amounts that some lines are charging - well, the cost of your cabin is no indicator. There are upgrades given by the line, your next door cabin may have paid a discounted amount on a last minute deal etc. Nightmare to sort out and a recipe for a personal relations disaster.

We had a suite on our last cruise on Arcadia and I suppose you could say we paid more in tips (by choice) because we tipped our cabin steward and our butler. I cannot see how or why you think it should be enforced that people in higher grade cabins should pay more. Where would you draw the line? Should people with a balcony pay more than those with an outside cabin? Should those with an outside cabin pay more than those with an inside cabin? It's nonsense. If people choose to pay extra for a larger cabin why should they be penalised?
