    We have gone on several cruises with Disney but we have finally decided to book a concierge suite for our next cruise. What are the tipping guidelines when booking concierge and specifically what kind of tip is suggested for the concierge staff?

    Ahoy Donna –
    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on your Concierge level cruise! We are always so happy to hear about the cruise and vacation plans of our guests, and there is nothing more exciting than a Concierge vacation.  Get ready to be pampered, to experience luxury beyond compare, and to have your every desire attended to! My pirate crew and I have not had this experience before and we hope you have a fabulous time! I reached out to my friends at Disney Cruise Line regarding tipping for Concierge, and as with most kinds of tipping, there are no set guidelines in place. The tips for the server, assistant server, head server and stateroom host are the same for Concierge guests as they are for everyone else which is roughly $12 per day per cruiser.

    What you tip the Concierge cast members really depends upon how much you use their services. Some families interact with the Concierge cast members very rarely and do not ask them to do very much.  Other families rely heavily on these cast members to take care of their every need. You should base your tips to them on how much you utilize their services and how much time they spend on you. I would think their tips should at least be on par with the other cast members who care for you as well. My fellow Moms Panelist Nancy also did a great job on this question in the past and I feel it may be helpful for you. Donna, we hope you have a marvelous time in Concierge and please feel free to visit us here again!
