I called DCL to add on cruise transfers, and the person said that i did not have added on to prepay my tips. He stated that at final payment, they will bill my CC for the tips. I stated that when i cruised in June 2012, they had the new tip payment in effect, but that was only charged to my shipboard account the day we got on the ship, and then we went to guest services to have it removed so we could pay our own tips the way we wanted-which is usually more than suggested. We like to give for great service, not be forced to give a certain amount,and we like to hand it to them ourselves. So will they also charge my card for $336 for tips for 4 of us for a 7 night cruise on final payment, or do they wait until you board, then we can cancel that and pay ourselves still??
