This year we are changing things up a bit to make things easier by including your onboard daily gratuities in your total cruise cost. This means your daily gratuities are included in your interest free payment plan and you don’t have to worry about covering the cost once you are onboard the ship. You want to spend your money on other stuff, right?
For Standard Cabins (Junior Suites and below) your daily onboard gratuities are $13.50 per person per day/$54 total for cruise. For Suites (Grand Suites and above) your daily onboard gratuities are $16.50 per person per day/$66 total for cruise. Again, we are including these in the additional per person amount of $254/$266 (the other $200 is for your gov’t taxes and port fees).
Daily gratuities apply to guests of all ages and stateroom categories. They are shared between your onboard service team which includes dining services, your stateroom attendant and other hotel services. But if a crew member provides exceptional services onboard, please feel free to reward them with an additional gratuity/tip!
Gratuities and tips for casino dealers, bartenders and spa personnel are not included in the daily gratuities since all guests will not use their services. An 18% gratuity is automatically added to beverage purchases, minibar items, and spa and salon services. These gratuities will be noted on your receipt.
