Celebrity is a good example of getting nickel and dimed to death and having to be concerned about people you may rarely come in contact with.
However, at least it is your option. Bring a lot of envelopes for the last day aboard. Quite frankly, I've always found it bothersome to have to track down all these people. It is a tiresome practice for what advertises itself as a premium cruise line.
