If they do a good job then tip them handsomely. If not, then don't tip them. Simple.
this is a bad habit and precedent, good job also no need to tip them unless u really feel comfortable.

I don't believe in rewarding mediocre or just enough.

I normally tip butlers that go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. I don't think this is a bad habit. If you do well, you are rewarded.

Just came back from cruise today. 17 to 19 nov is chartered cruise for Kris flyer redemption. A lot of air steward and stewardess, looks more like a company event than guest. Surprisingly slot machines were hardly occupied. about 20% occupied only. By 2.30am, left about 10%. All decks were quiet after midnight. Pool, gymn, jacuzzi was crowded and fully booked by the first day evening.

A lot of SIA exclusives workshop from ballon sculpting, batik rose making almost every hourly per session, public can participate too.

Lower dining western food was very good, had a fine dining kind of quality. Upper dining food remains boring. Level 16 Lido serves cup ice cream during lunch.

Currently only showing Lumiere and Jolly Holly.

Hi, could check if anyone has experienced this? I have booked dream cruise for 5th Dec, the cruise ticket shows 1pm to 1.15pm ART timeslot but upon online check in the ART timeslot changes to 6.45pm to 7pm. Understand the entire process will take up to 30 mins to an hour. Based on the latest announcement, the boarding gate will close at 7pm. Called dream cruise about it, they said the timeslots were generated by system and couldn't do anything about it although the system is under dream cruise. Kind of ridiculous as the timeslot clashes with the closing gate timing.

Hi seniors here have some question regarding room upgrade.

We are setting sail this Wed (24 Nov). Currently me, my wife and child are at Palace room. My Parents in law are in balcony stateroom. As latest changes in restrictions allows 5 from different household to dine together, we are thinking of asking my Parents-in-law join us in the specialty restaurants for all the meals for 3D2N.

Thus may i ask what is the average price for the set lunch/dinner at speciality restaurants (in particular teppanyaki, silk road & Mark Grill)?
Or will it be more worth it to ask my parent-in-law to upgrade to Palace? and if so what will the additional cost be?
Thank you in advance for your advice.
