What gets me is its only for non us guests. the cheek! just go to customer service and have them removed then its up to you who if you tip. paying £3500 for a cruise in europe is a lot. service would have to be outstanding for me to tip having paid so much not like the carribean cruises you can get for a song.

You can, but why would you want to? Tips are pooled between the staff.

I too do not like service charges and prefer to give personal tips to who i choose. we are cruising with ncl in about 6 weeks time, how do i arrange to cancel the service charges. m.griffiths, reading, berk.

Yes you can, & we do. To answer the previous answer, we do not like that idea one bit. We prefer to give our tips to those people traditionaly given, cabin steward, table waiter, busboy, etc. It is a lovely gesture at the end of the cruise to do, & on NCL 1st time we felt awful, while having the 'enforced' tips setup, not giving any at the last night, when others do. You can easily cancel your auto tips at the Guest relations desk. The problem with NCL is it's freestyle cruising. How do you tip a waiter that you may only see once or twice? Try knocking off some of the auto-tips, & settling for paying your cabin steward only.
