MSC Cruises - No Tipping Required




TORONTO - MSC Cruises has announced that they have instituted a 'no tipping required' policy throughout their fleet. "Unlike most cruise lines who require the payment of gratuities to on-board staff and in many cases add a mandatory gratuity to guest accounts, tipping on MSC Cruises is not required, and of equal importance, not expected", says Rick Sasso, president and CEO of the cruise line. "Outstanding service is a signature of MSC Cruises. Our on board staff are on full salary to ensure a professional, genuinely sincere level of service."

MSC Cruises, a division of Mediterranean Shipping Company, the second largest container carrier company in the world, draws its inspiration from Italian lifestyle and service at its finest, catering to guests who seek the gracious pleasures of classic cruising complemented by the influences of Italian chic and 'la dolce vita'.

Vanessa Lee, managing director of Encore Cruises, which represents MSC Cruises exclusively in Canada, adds, "Sales for MSC Cruises are booming and here is yet another selling feature to set them apart. Their new 'no tipping required' policy is a remarkably welcome financial advantage for our guests."
