So what do you do just slap a buck down when you order? Or do the tips get charged to the cabin.
there are no tips charged per drink if you have a drinks package and as you are in the YC you have drinks included.
Instead there is the daily service charge.
I would be very careful about tipping openly as if they are seen to be given a tip they have to put it in the "pot" along with the daily service charges. Failure to do so can lead to dismissal as the official line is no tipping, see bottom right of this image from a brochure (UK version).
Tips must be given very discreetly.
