Sorry to butt in, I really need to unsubscribe since I'm not even on this cruise but had some questions in past.

I have prepaid gratuities for our last 2 or 3 cruises. It doesn't just give you an onboard credit, though I have done that also. It simply states on your account "gratuities included". It does qualify for the 0% financing on your Disney visa too, as does prepaying your own OBCs on your onboard acct. Each charge must be $101 or greater to qualify.
Once onboard, any charges made to your DV don't qualify for 0% but it all earns Disney dollars toward your reward card.

While others are filling out their gratuity papers & returning them to GS, you don't have to do any of that. On the proper day you will get gratuity tickets & envelopes delivered to your stateroom to give out when everyone else does. It's really very convenient.

Well, I hope that is the "toerag" being referred to here?


My friend in Canada had always wondered how the term "Billy No Mates" would be used. When I called another friend "Billy no Mates" because she was not participating with a happy face in a game, my Canadian friend was so excited as she understood when and how it would be used. lol


Thank you for the toe rag definition

I think that the tips are also automatically charged to our accounts on Med cruises. We prepaid ours (when I got the Premier Visa it had 5% on all Disney purchase for three months, so I paid off two cruise and all the tips as I don't make 5% on my savings account) and I am curious to see how it shows up on our account.

My Question of the Day - Room Service Tips

OK. I know if I was taking the Magic out of Florida and my mother orders a pot of coffee from room service we tip a few bucks.

So how many Euros are you planning to tip? I will need to start saving coins when we hit France...
(Or are you still going to tip in dollars?)

Thanks for the advice on tips. I plan to call this week and deal with that

I'm tipping in Dollars. Everything on the ship is in Dollars afaik so that's what I'll be using. Also, as an added bonus, we get more Dollars to the pound than Euros.

The hotel was very reasonably priced and clean. we really liked it.

The next link is of the tour we did. We did the tour the morning of the cruise. It was for four hours and I wrote about it in my trip report. Well worth the money.
