Tips to avoid being ripped off.
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
There are no guest laundry facilities on the Celebrity so be prepared for some fancy prices for them to do your washing.
You will be automatically charged about twelve dollars a day for gratuities which you can ask to be removed from your account. We personally object to this form of tipping as Kiwis do not generally tip and we believe tipping should be at ones discretion and not just added to your account. I guess if you paid your workers a fair wage then tips would not be necessary.
Unfortunately we felt that once you were on board it was everyone's job to screw as much extra money out of you as possible - constantly bothered by waiters asking you to buy alcohol, photographers, Shore excursions, expensive restaurant cover charges,laundry charges etc etc.
The trip itself was reasonably good and the food excellent. If you heed some of the advice on being ripped off you will have more money to do some other things you enjoy. Less
