    Why am I not surprised

    Cruisers Are Outraged As Gratuities Are On The Rise Again.

    It has just been confirmed that Holland America Line have increased their gratuity amounts.
    HAL guests will see the increase from May 1st 2017 and the amount will rise 8%, from $12.50 to $13.50 a day. The recommended rate for suite guests will rise from $13.50 to $15 (an 11% increase).

    It won be long before the rest jump on the band wagon

    Moral of the story - DONT PAY THEM

    Simple, take the gratuities into account when you work out the cost of the trip. If you don't like the total cost, don't go.

      Well said Judith.

      To OP, who says that cruisers are outraged - just curious.

            Would you feel better if gratuities were included in the advertised price? Please don't shout at me, it's rude.

              This was your comment on 23/2 about the same subject, why bring it up again?

                      Or we could have a thread on meeting:

                      A drunken, chair hogging, badly dressed, smoker, who did not tip or pay gratuities or wash their hands properly and who was a commited Brexit/remain candidate.

                      I was tempted to name a cruise line but...............

                            I'm awfully sorry, I don't know what Cunard's rates are for scratching anyone's bits so although you addressed this to me, if you don't mind, I'll pass.
