This is an extract from OV's web site: Basic tips on board are included in the price of your holiday, but you are welcome to recognise great service with discretionary tips. So if you feels that you would like to give something extra that would normally be done once and at the end of your cruise and is not restricted to the cabin attendant but anyone who you feel has made an extra effort so that you could enjoy yourself. .......Neil.

Yes, tip extra if you really want to, but do wait until the end of the cruise - otherwise you may find staff pursuing around the sip, wanting to pander to your every need!

It is usual to tip the last day of your cruise if you find that you and the cabin you occupy has been looked after, the amount you tip is up to you, the same goes with your table waiters and the wine waiter, these are the ones that look after you personally all the way through the cruise. It is interesting to know however, that if you have compulsory tips entered on your final statement, you do not have to pay them, you just tell the Purser that you wish to tip the staff of your own choice and they will deduct the amount from your statement, It has been done!

Certainly. Tip every day. Only $1 or if exceptional $2 per day. Leave it on the pillow and you'll be sure of service. If the service is no good......tell them.

Reply to you question re tips. Whe we go on the Royal Caribbean ships we always pay our service charges up front with our holiday, it is cheaper and a lot less fuss. Otherwise we pay the cabin steward and waiter and anyone that has been particularly helpful. About 40 or 50 Euros each for the week. Hpoe this is helpful to you/ .

How Much?

By Gail Ryan

How Much?Last week, out of the blue, I woke up on Friday morning with horrendous back pain.I tried to brave it out, taking pain killers and clamping a hot water bottle to my back! but nothing was working. I am not one for going to see my Doctor, in fact, before my visit on Friday, I had not been in over 2 years, so imagine my shock when I was given my prescription and my Daughter went to the Chemist to get it filled – 25.00!!I admit, I was vaguely aware that the costs of medicines had ...

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Mrs J & Mr M T have recently returned from a fantastic South American trip sailing on the Crown Princess. They emailed me as they travelled which was fab and have also sent me photos – thanks to them we can share this amazing trip!
