How much should I tip at the Alternative Dining Restaurants (Lazy J Texas Steakhouse, Little Italy, The Jefferson Bistro, East Meets West Asian, Sushi Bar and Teppanyaki) on the Norwegian Pride of America? First, bear in mind that all alcoholic beverages that you pay for will have a gratuity added. The cover charge does include gratuity, however, you may wish to consider giving an extra gratuity to the waiter or waitress who has served you. If the service is exceptional, giving the waiter $5 per person would be most appreciated.
