Can I pre pay my tips at the beginning of the cruise in cash at the pursers desk? If so and I want to adjust the level up or down after the cruise can I do that? I've also heard you can tip with envelopes the old fashioned way at the end of the cruise, but then I've heard that the staff knows who pre paid and who did not and I don't want them to think they did anything wrong. Im in the service industry so I know how much people depend on these tips.
If you plan to pay for everything in cash at the end of the cruise, why not just let them put the tips on your account and then pay on the last evening? I'm not sure if that is an option for you or not, but it is just a suggestion.
