I enjoyed the cruise, the only issues I have is that there should not have been a charge for WI-FI and I was very upset to see that the gratuities were already charge on my bill. I like to decide how much I want to tip for services.  I had no problem with services but I should be able to decide how much it should be. I would recommend the cruise, but I would warn them about the gratuities.  I would have been ok with leaving $50, and would like the difference credited back to my charge card.  Thank you.

Ship Tip

eat at the buffet, the food was excellent and you can have as much as you like. No waiting to order at a dining table full of people.

baggage carrier was very pushy about getting a tip, even said "once again, are you going to tip me"
