I understand gratuities ($19.50 each person) are charged to your account daily and paid at the conclusion of your cruise.  Does this include the bus drivers of the Hop-on-hop-off busses?

I think the HOHO drivers are included in the gratuity. They will be the same throughout your trip as the busses follow the boat.  It was recommended that you tip the local guide if you take a premium excursion but no other tips were needed.

Thank you.  We left on the day you answered, but what you said is what happened.  The guide on our first premium tour passed a hat for gratuities.  Some people thought it was for the driver and guide.  When they asked the driver if the guide had shared the tips, the answer was no.  We noticed that on the HOHO no one tipped the guides, since they did not have the same guide after they hopped off and on.

The excursion manager on the ship never mentioned tipping in any of her presentations.
