Ok, I would really like to get some input from you more seasoned cruisers. My husband and I cruised on The Magic for our 10 year anniversary and we basically tripled the 'suggested tip' that time. We just were aghast that those people worked that hard and gave such amazing service for such a little amount. It just didnt feel like it was enough. Bearing in mind we are NOT rich people (we are cruising again in January for our 15 year anniversary) The reason its been 5 years is because we really have to save and plan massively to afford what, for us, is a really extravagant luxury. We allow ourselves a 'big trip' every 5 years (in between we fill in the gaps with mini trips to the mouse in CA, nearer where we live). So, with all that being said, I know that the 'suggested tip' is $12 per person per day. For the 2 weeks we are cruising that would be $336. If we were to triple it again we are looking at $1008 in tips. Since we are trying hard to plan this well I would like to get thoughts on you all if tripling is overkill? Is doubling maybe more the norm? How do YOU ALL plan tips? I would really like to get your thoughts. I know what the minimum requirement is, but ....well, yeah...their service is so fantastic we know they are worth more. Thoughts please?
