From our RCCL contacts: "Here is the current update from our website, regarding Liberty's return to Galveston today and our plans for Sunday's sailing: We are encouraged that Port officials continue to inform us that Liberty of the Seas should be able to return to Galveston on Friday, on time for her September 3 sailing. George Bush International and Hobby Airport officials expect to be back to full service by this weekend. As always, we will continue to monitor airports in the area and ask that you continue to visit for the most up-to-date information. We also encourage our guests to reach out to their airline for specific flight details. If you are driving to Port of Galveston, we ask that you check the latest information on road conditions at the Texas Department of Transportation website –"

[02/19/20]   Tipping at All-Inclusive Resorts

Source: Linda Kurtzweil

I’ve been writing blog articles for over a year now and until now, I’ve never seen the need to write one reminding people of the importance of tipping while visiting Mexico. Since the majority of my readers are either American or Canadian, they are very familiar with tipping. They certainly don’t need me to point out the obvious.

It would be like writing an article about the importance of wearing sunscreen at the beach — what a waste of time that would be.

So, why the change now? The answer is simple: we just returned from an all-inclusive resort and I noticed that people rarely tipped the waiters and waitresses working in the restaurants. The thing that amazed me most was that these cheap guests were often Americans or Canadians.

I spoke to one such guest in the pool and he said that he thought that the tips were included in the package. After I told him what the average salaries were for the employees working there, he looked embarrassed and vowed to change his ways.

Why You Should Tip
If you’ve ever been to a quality all-inclusive resort, you know that the employees bend over backwards to ensure that you have a wonderful vacation experience. These men and women usually work a six-day work week for very little pay. How little? I’m glad you asked.

I checked a few job sites online and there were several listings for positions at all-inclusives. The average starting salary for both waiters and bartenders was only between $4,000 -$6,000 pesos a month. In U.S. dollars, that equates to $226 -$339 dollars a month. The salaries for other positions, such as concierge and housekeeper, weren’t much better.

Tipping Advice
My advice to you is to bring plenty of small bills and to tip frequently. There is no set formula for how much you should tip — that’s up to you.

For example, this is what we usually do:

Waiters / Waitresses – This one depends on the meal (buffet or table service), the time we spent there and the level of attention we received. We usually leave $2-3 USD for breakfast, $3-5 for lunch, and $5-10 for dinner.

Porters – $1 USD per bag.

Bartenders – $1 if we are just passing through. If we stay there for any length of time, we usually leave between $5 -$10 USD.

Housekeeping – $2-$3 USD per day.

Special Employees – If someone really goes out of their way to make our trip a great experience, we will often give them an additional tip of up to $20 USD.

[01/28/20]   A prayer for all our Caribbean folks facing the aftermath of the earthquake.
"O God, our times are in your hand. In the midst of uncertainty lead us by your never-failing grace as we seek to be agents of healing and hope. Walk with us through difficult times; watch over us in danger; and give to us a spirit of love and compassion for those who suffer and mourn. And finally remind us that you have promised never to leave us so that even in the valley of the shadow of death your love may be felt, through Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN." ~The Rev. Lyndon Harris
