Gratuities

On all our ships, it is customary to offer tips to staff members for their good service and personal attention. You can pre-pay your service charge as part of your booking and this will be shared among Dining Services Staff, Stateroom Attendants and Other Housekeeping Services Personnel. If you have opted not to pre-pay your Service Charge before your cruise, for your convenience we will automatically add a $14.50 per guest per day service charge to each guest's SeaPass account on a daily basis. For guests in a Grand Suite or above, the amount is $17.50.

An 18% service charge is also automatically added to beverages and beverage packages, mini-bar items, spa & salon purchases as well as specialty dining products, including packages, classes and brunches.

Many of our guests choose to reward exceptional service during their cruise by providing additional gratuities. You may do so by providing an additional gratuity to your SeaPass onboard account or a cash gratuity at your discretion.
