    What is customary amount to tip concierge hosts? We just disembarked off a 5 day Bahamian cruise and wondering what amount we should give (I should've asked this question before). We are a family of 5. We had an amazing time!!!! Thank you, DCL!!!

    Hi there, Charmaine!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and welcome back from your adventure at sea!  I hope you had the most magical adventure with so many wonderful experiences and many memories to carry with you!

    I am certain you experienced the incredible service and attention to detail aboard your Disney Cruise ship.  The Cast Members do a superb job of making sure each and every Guest is well taken care of and will do whatever they can to ensure your trip is the BEST!  At the end of sailings, it is customary to pay gratuities to your stateroom host or hostess, your main dining room servers and the head server for your dining experience.  Undoubtedly, you had a lot of interaction with these Cast Members and they had a hand in making your trip memorable.

    The suggested gratuity to these individuals is as follows, but is ultimately up to your discretion:
    Stateroom Host/Hostess - $4/night per Guest
    Main Dining Room Server - $4/night per Guest
    Assistant Dining Room Server - $3/night per Guest
    Head Server - $1/night per Guest

    The above suggested amount is automatically applied to your stateroom account at the end of your sailing, but you can certainly go to Guest Services to change the amount if you choose to do so.

    Now that you are a Castaway Club member, I hope you’ve reserved your next Disney Cruise Line vacation for even more adventure and fun at sea!
