Some cruise company's now ask you to include this when you pay for your holiday so you don't have to bother when on board. Some have indicated they don't like this arrangement as you may get very bad service, well so far 15 cruises and had little to complain about. You can still add to the amount you have contracted to pay by putting in cash with the little envelopes the cruise line supplies, if you feel you have received even better service.

You can either have 6 euros per person per day charged to your onboard account or pay in cash to whom you wish at the end of the cruise. The choice is yours.

You can wave/cancel your gratuity as soon as you board the ship.this is better as you can choose who you want to give tips to at the end of the cruise.you will save a lot of money this way.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive.

I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
