Carnival Address Rumour Of Where Extra Gratuities For Cabin Stewards Really Go

Carnival Cruise Line’s brand ambassador, John Heald, has just addressed a rumour about cash gratuities for cabin stewards.

Certain guests have been speculating on where the extra tips they often give to their room stewards, who go above and beyond on their cruise, really go.

The rumour has been circulating around the internet the past few years and hints to the idea that when a guest gives an additional cash gratuity to their room steward, the room steward has to turn that money into a tip pool.

John Heald spoke out on this issue and posted a response to the question: “What is Carnival’s policy if I personally hand my room steward an additional cash gratuity in addition to the ones I have already paid?”

Heald commented: “This seems to be the question of the day as many are asking me in reaction to a post made by someone […] that states that there is a tip pool for state room stewards.

Please ignore any rumour that you may have read as it is false. Any cash you give [to] our crew is kept by the state room steward 100%.

It is not pooled. He or she may give some to their assistant that helped clean your cabin but again, it is not pooled.

And a massive thank you to everyone who does tip our crew, you are very kind and I know our brilliant crew will continue to strive to exceed your expectations.”

But what do you think? Do you agree with what Heald says or are you on the rumour’s side? Have your say…
