    first time cruiser, we are leaving in Nov. coming out of Galveston port, how much gratutity do we give a day for a 4 day cruise?

    Hi there, Salina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  You are in for such a treat on the Disney Wonder. Being from Texas, my family likes to take advantage of the convenience of sailing from Galveston as often as we can!

    Suggested gratuity amounts for a 4 night cruise is as follows (per person), but are ultimately at your discretion. 
    $16 - Dining Room Server
    $12 - Dining Room Assistant Server
    $4 -   Dining Room Head Server
    $16 - Stateroom Host/Hostess

    You can prepay your gratuities by contacting Disney Cruise Line at least three days prior to your sailing or you can opt to have them automatically charged to your stateroom account. 

    As a first time cruiser, your Online Check-In and reservation window will open 75 days prior to your sailing.  At that time you will be able to reserve any Port Adventures and onboard activities such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique appointments or spa treatments at Senses Spa and Salon.  

    As your planning continues, please come back with any additional questions you may have!

    Happy Sailing!
