If gratuities have not been included in your overall price it is possible to go to the Purser's Desk and advise them not to charge gratuities to your account as you wish to tip personally. You should have no problem as I have done this on cruises. Even though the cabin steward and dining staff are aware the gratuities are paid in advance, it can be embarrassing leaving the table on the last night without giving the tips personally, particularly if you have had good service throughout cruise.

How else can you pay the staff tips when you might get a different waiter every visit, pay each one individually? Stop trying to evade and go with the system..... Neil.
