10. Tipping – So that you can thank those who have made your cruise vacation better than you could have imagined, we’ve simplified the service recognition process, Royal Caribbean has implemented the Automatic Gratuity Program, the program is available in two options:
a. For the convenience of guests, pre-paid gratuities may be arranged online or added to your booking by your travel agent, before your sail date, at a daily rate of $12.00 USD gratuity ($14.25 USD for Suite Guests).
b. If a guest chooses not to pre-pay gratuities, Royal Caribbean automatically adds a $12.00 USD gratuity ($14.25 USD for Suite Guests) to each guest’s SeaPass® account on a daily basis.
This gratuity is shared by Dining Services Staff, Stateroom Attendants and other Housekeeping Services Personnel that work to enhance your cruise. The daily automatic gratuity amounts are based on customary industry standards. These gratuities apply to guests of all ages. Gratuities for other service personnel are at your discretion. A 15% gratuity is automatically added to any bar service beverages, mini bar items and Spa & Salon services.
