First time cruiser and first time poster--what a great site. Glad I found it because I've learned a lot. Just over 1 week away from our first cruise and we are excited. The tipping policy for HAL is pretty vague. Just wondering when/how much we should tip? We are happy to reward good/great service with a generous tip but we have no idea how this translates to a cruise. Does HAL provide the opportunity to tip at the end of the cruise (or can we add it to the charge when we order a drink) or do we need to keep a roll of cash to tip as we go? Do we tip at every meal? If so, how much? Do we tip the matre de (sp?) and wine steward? how about bartenders and baggage service? How much for room service? Does the steward get a daily tip or a tip for each time he provides service? Thanks in advance.
