Cruise companies typically offer two ways to cover gratuities for crew: prepaid or discretionary.
Prepaid gratuities are included in your cruise fare.
Discretionary gratuities are typically are paid at the end of your cruise - as in stuffed into envelopes or handed over directly to crew.
There is a third option: no gratuities.
Some cruisers, particularly those from countries where tipping is not customary, ask the question: Doesn't the cruise company compensate its employees adequately enough?
So when it comes to gratuities, which do you prefer?
