I used to always enclose one of those little White Star comment cards along with mine.

I wonder how many of us used to fill them in? For how many people?

There must have been some crew members who received them regularly (as they had the most contact with passengers) and others who got them only rarely, if ever.

I used to fill them in for most of those people who also received tips -- the crew members who had been particularly excellent in their care and attention. Among those who did not receive tips, there were a couple of members of the Purser's office on one or two occasions who I thought had been supremely helpful.

Did anyone here ever give a "You're a Star" award to the Captain?

Louis, all in all, how many forms did the tips take? Most of us walked around the ship without even a cent in our pockets, because one of the wonderful advantages was that we could just use our ship card for everything.

I therefore imagine that an immediate tip in cash would have been very rare. What other forms would a tip take? And at which point in time during a cruise would you receive them?
