gratuity policy ?5 a day per person please note

Excellent mini cruise and would recommend, but was disappointed to be advised, minutes before vacating our cabin to disembark, we received our on board spending statement, We knew it was to be about ?13, and with the automatic gratuity policy was now ?53.
There is now a tip policy automatically added to the bill. On reading the P&O literature it states that for those AGED 12 and over a ?5 per person PER DAY gratuity will be added to the bill. On a two week holiday for a family of 4 this would add ?280 to the bill???
I tip my cabin staff and restaurant waiters as we have always done. Gratuities should be part of the price of the cruise as Thompson cruises do. I resent supplementing P&O’s salary policy, and when you do the maths (passenger x ?5 div by crew) I wonder how much the crew really get??
I will request in the future with P&O cruises this be removed from the bill. This is a blatant way of keeping staff salaries down, pay them a fair wage they certainly deserve it. Great cruise though.
