    Hi there! So excited for cruise Dec 19th! Just wondering, if I prepay gratuities, will the crew members know we already set the amount of their tips? Can we tip them extra in cash/ goodies if we want or does it have to go through our onboard acct? Thx!

    Hi Julie!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be sailing so soon!  You're going to have such a blast! 

    I just returned from my Disney cruise vacation a few days ago, and my gratuities were prepaid.  The crew members do not know that their gratuities are prepaid.  You will receive small envelopes in your stateroom for your Server, Assistant Server, Head Server, and Stateroom Host.  You will also receive tickets that say how much gratuity you have paid for each of them.  You can add cash to the envelope or go to Guest Services and have them increase the gratuity for each person.  It will be charged to your stateroom account.   

    I hope this helps Julie.  Please let me know if I can answer anything else for you.  Have a magical sailing!
