The Standard Gratuities (on all cruise lines) are tips given to your Cabin Attendant, your Head Waiter, Waiter and Assistant Waiter in the Main Dining Room. These gratuities apply to guests of all ages and are at your discretion for the service you receive.
Please Note: Miscellaneous gratuities for other service personnel and the AotS Staff are at your discretion. A certain percentage (typically 15%) gratuity will automatically be added to your bill when ordering certain things onboard (alcohol, soda, specialty or surcharged food items) when you are served.
Standard Gratuities may be paid in the following ways:
NOTE: There is no advantage to pre-paying Gratuities, other than not having to pay for them onboard.
- PRIOR TO YOUR CRUISE: Pre-Paid prior to your cruise (use the form below). You cannot change the amount once onboard.
- ONCE ONBOARD: Automatically added to your onboard account once onboard the ship, and can be paid at the end of your cruise with your credit card (associated with your onboard account). Note: You can also amend the amount of the gratuities by visiting the Guest Relations desk onboard.
- ONCE ONBOARD: You can choose to have your Gratuities removed from your Onboard Account, and pay cash directly to your servers and attendant.
