Somebody else correct me if I'm wrong!
We just got off the Wonder on February. I did the pre paid gratuities. I was a little confused because I didn't see anything when we got into our stateroom about it. I was thinking there would be vouchers with our excursions tickets. I finally asked guest services and they assured me that were paid. The vouchers arrived in my stateroom along with the envelopes on the last day if the evening. I would NEVER cancel our the gratuities unless the service was just AWFUL. If you ate out at breakfast, lunch, and dinner for all those days your tips would be way more. I always wondered about tipping the children's activities staff. They are so good! Also, does anyone add amounts to the drink bill over the 15%? If so, how much more do you add?
