At the end of ur cruise u will be given ur bill and it will tell u then what they suggest u tip, it is then up to yourself what u tip if anything at all, if u wish this to be removed from ur bill just go to the help desk and they will remove i.
Tipping is easy - tip only those whose service you have been pleased with, put in an envelope and discreetly give to the waiter/cabin steward on the last evening of your cruise. Have a wonderful time.
The system of the QM2 is straightforward in that there is a standard tipping system in place. You are basically charged £6 per day per person and this is shared by all the staff on board, even those behind the scenes and thus is a fair system. The amount is automatically put on your bill each day and charged at the end of your cruise. Naturally if you want to tip any individual anymore such as your cabin steward then this is at your discretion.Equally should you wish to opt out of this system you can but why would you? £6 a day is hardly a huge amount for the fantastic level of service you will get on the QM2 which is undoubedly the best ship afloat, in that it is the only real liner in the world. Please ignore all the skinflints who complicate a very reasonable and realistic system and try and justify their basic meanness by all forms of rationale about personal choice. Please also remember that the people who will give you such a fantastic service do work really hard and in order to support their families, often are away from home for 6 or 9 months at a time. We on the other hand are having a fantastic time so why begrudge them a reasonable tip...unless you want to be mean !!
