January 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Western
The cruise itself was great. The tours we took at ports were great. The only concern we had was on Thursday we were informed that there was a $13.50 charge per day, per passenger as a gratuity for the room stewards and the food staff. I don't have a problem with the charge because they deserved it. The problem we had was we were not informed of this before we left. The additional charge of $183 was a shock. On our past cruises, the charge was as low a $5.00. I believe should have informed us of this.
