    Am I able to pre-pay the gratuities for our upcoming cruise? How do I go about this so that I don't have to worry about it on our vacation? Thanks!

    Hi, Tannis!

    When initially booking online at, you have the option there to pre-pay gratuities. However, I've never paid gratuities online after I've booked. If you don't see the ability to do that by pulling up your reservation from the Planning Center, you certainly can call 800-951-3532 and have that detail handled. Or, you can visit Guest Services in the port when you check in, or of course, at Guest Services onboard anytime during your cruise. It's really not a big deal and doesn't take that long. I've paid my gratuities in several different ways (pre-paid or charged to shipboard account).. also including slipping cash into an envelope.  Each time, it was quick and well received.  Now, if I can only get those fine folks who cater to me on the ship to follow me home! live the life of forever being on a Disney Cruise!

    Let me know if you think of other questions for me. I'd be happy to help! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
