Gratuities are an additional cost when cruising. You can prepay them, pay the last day of your cruise or do cash. I always prepay them and I give extra at the end to whomever went above and beyond and it's ALWAYS the room stewards (and photographers!)! These people are so happy to have this job but I think it would be an awful job cleaning up after people esp when they've had to much to drink, are sea sick, etc. Next time I ask about how you want to pay the gratuities, think of Christine and the other room stewards and how hard they work for you and your family.
