    What a shame that the weekends seem to be filled with mindless people filling the pages with spam.

    I have just come back from Azura and nearly all the men wore tux on formal and around 60% of females wore long dress. Have a great cruise

    Jaczs got a reaction from cruisecampo in I know I can remove gratuities if I don’t want to leave them on my account, but will I be made to feel cheap if I do?   
    Wow Carnival Princess don't hold back you should say what you mean. 
     
    So how is a tight wad defined? Is it the person who pays select fare let say on a balcony cabin ups their flight to premium, pays for an excursion in each port and goes to the speciality dinning to try each menu in each venue, buys all their drinks in the bars uses the shops and coffee bars but does not tip.
    Or is it the person who gets a saver fare on the cheapest inside cabin pays nothing more other than a couple of drinks but tip the steward £50 at the end of the cruise?
    TBH it bothers me not one bit what anyone else does on their holidays or indeed how many times they have cruised or will cruise, I do as I see fit and tip as I see fit and I am sure they do as well, but I do hate it when people think they are above everyone else and insult because they think they have the right.
    Here is a tip for you manners cost nothing

    On my next cruise I have decided to cancel the gratuities and go back to tipping myself as to be honest I like giving a person thank you to the people I tip.

    During the day it is the usual casual wear with Christmas T-Shirts and Jumpers a plenty  but formal at Dinner time is the norm the same for News Years Eve but you can change to informal after dinner for the deck party but not many do.
    Have a great time

    Give a tip or don't give a tip is up to the individual person to decide, again take off the auto tip and don't give anything or take it off to tip yourself or leave it on really when it boils down is nobodies business except the individuals.
    I am on my holiday I really don't care who does what, I do what I am happy with and it is no-one business but mine.

    Jaczs got a reaction from Oldworldtraveller in Room Service on P&O   
    Sad to say but it does look like P&O are becoming a huge cash cow, from the moment you book more and more supposed extra's (which used to come as standard) are now available with an extra price tag.
    Going to the Caribbean? Any airport which isn't Gatwick oh the will be an extra £100pp (regional dontcha know) Want to sit together? well you can for just a small extra charge, as there is no seat price available for next year I expect it is rising. Upgrade to premium last year £299.00 this year it will be £349.00 again just a small increase. Select dinning at Epicurean (enhance your dinning experience for a small nominal charge (£28.00) pp the list goes on and on. The best being "We are upping the price of tips as we (P&O) feel the crew are worth it, If P&O feel that then why don't they fork out for it and put the price on the cruise? No lets keep the cruise price cheap to fill them and charge for everything once on-board.
    And this is all to enhance MY experience with no thought of P&O shouting kerching  kerching all the way to the bank.
    Next year I am trying Sandals will be interesting to see how much more or less the price will be doing ultra all inclusive.

    For me it would be a balcony for the Caribbean, on a sea day you can sit in peace and quiet looking out to sea and on an evening sit in the balmy warmth and you see some lovely views.
