Service Gratuities (Tips)

Published 03/12/2015 02:00 AM   |    Updated 12/03/2018 04:21 PM
It is customary for our 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, bar and culinary services staff, as well as others who work behind the scenes to enhance your overall cruise experience. Applying this charge automatically streamlines the recognition process and ensures our crew will share in your generosity. To help you plan, we have provided the recommended guidelines below:
  • Standard Staterooms: $13.99 USD per person, per day
  • Suite Staterooms: $15.99 USD per person, per day 
You may pay this daily gratuity in two different ways:
 
Pre-Pay
Gratuities can be added at the time of booking or anytime up to the sail date. Guests who booked directly with Carnival may add their pre-paid gratuities on Carnival.com. If a guest booked with a travel agent, they may contact their travel professional to add pre-paid gratuities to their booking. Prepaid gratuities are reflected in the 'Miscellaneous Charge' field on the confirmation and in the guest’s E-Documents.
 
Sail & Sign® 
If a guest has not pre-paid the gratuities, the recommended per person amount will be posted to their Sail & Sign account on the second to last day of the cruise.  Should a guest not be satisfied with the service they receive, they can contact the Guest Services desk while on board. This will allow us to address their concerns in a timely and appropriate fashion. At the discretion of the guest, gratuities may be adjusted after they have been posted on the guest’s account, while on board.  Gratuities, as posted on a guest’s Sail and Sign account, will be considered final after a guest disembarks and no changes will be made after the cruise.
 
Additional information:
  • 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 automatic18% gratuity will be added to the bill. 
  • An automatic18% gratuity will be added to the cover charge of the Chef’s Table.  
  • A gratuity may be extended to room service staff as service is rendered. 
  • For cruises that begin in Barbados, all gratuities are pre-paid and automatically added during the booking process.
Thank you for your generous recognition of our on board team. Our crew works hard to provide you with a great vacation and takes pride in being part of the best team in the cruise industry.
