P&O Cruises has responded to passenger feedback by eliminating automatic passenger tipping from its fleet. From October 1, 2010 the recommended daily gratuity of $7.50 per passenger will no longer be automatically added to passengers’ onboard accounts.
When Pacific Pearl joins the fleet in 2010, it will join Pacific Jewel, Pacific Dawn and Pacific Sun. P&O Cruises will be the only cruise line operating from the major Australian and New Zealand ports of Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, Newcastle and Fremantle. This is how to holiday!
