It is customary for guests to extend gratuities to the shipboard staff in appreciation for their hard work and exceptional service. 100% of your gratuities are distributed to the crew who you interact with, such as your stateroom attendants, dining and culinary services staff, as well as others who work behind the scenes to enhance your overall cruise experience. Gratuities are automatically applied to your shipboard account on the final night of your sailing. Applying this charge automatically streamlines the recognition process and ensures our crew will share in your generosity.
Gratuities can be added at the time of booking or anytime up to the sail date. Prepaid gratuities are reflected in the 'Miscellaneous Charge' field on the confirmation and in the guest's E-Documents.
>Gratuities are assessed on all guests, with the exception of children under the age of 2.
>Gratuities apply regardless of the dining options selected, such as eating at the casual dining restaurant or open seating dining.
>For beverage purchases, an automatic 18% gratuity will be added to the bill.
