PRINCESS CRUISES GREEDY IS THE NAME OF EVERY SHIP LOS ANGELS, California
*Author of original report: Does not explain these shady transactions
*Consumer Comment: Welcome to cruising...
Fine...no problem with that. However, when you ordered a cocktail at the bar, you were charged along with a 15% GRATUITY thrown in....AND THERE IS A column on the charge slip for gratuity...most people dont look at the bill..they automatically add a GRATUITY and end up paying 30-40% gratuity. The ship had a Doctor of Accupuncture...made an appointment and paid 150 dollars for a one hour session,
when the charge slip came, in addition to the 150 dollar charge, there was a column for GRATUITY....in a polite way, the accupuncuturist hinted that GRATUITY was expected....SINCE WHEN DO DOCTORS CHARGE GRATUITY????? A dermatologist on board wanted 2000 dollars for a non invasive face lift...WERE WE EXPECTED TO PAY 300 DOLLARS IN GRATUITIES to this doctor?
Finally, since they had my credit card on file, i got an unexplained charge of 118 dollars...no receipt, no explanation...i intend to contest this...but after being put on hold for 30 minutes on their 800 line, i finally gave up...will take it up with Visa.......Majority of the wait staff and cleaners and cooks on Princess are foreigners, they are paid a flat rate of 1000-1500 dollars per month...what this cruise company tries to do is have the passengers pay these wages by charging exhorbitant GRATUITIES....sorry Princess...WONT BE SAILING WITH YOU AGAIN.
