    Hello, We have booked and paid our deposit for a Bahamian Cruise in March 2017 on the Disney Wonder. Do you know if the gratuity per person is included in the price of the cruise or is that a separate charge at the end?

    Ahoy, Melita!
    Congratulations on your upcoming cruise aboard the beautiful Disney Wonder! The coming months will be exciting as you plan every magical detail of your cruise vacation. The Disney Cruise Line website is a great resource as you research as well as the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Once aboard, you will be glad you spent time learning the ins and outs of cruising the high seas with Mickey. My family took our first Disney Cruise over ten years ago, and although some things have changed over the years, the phenomenal service has not. From the moment you step aboard, the amazing crew will treat you like royalty. There will be a few crew members who will be responsible for making sure your family has personalized and friendly service in the dining rooms and that your accommodations are comfortable and clean. Gratuities are a way to thank these hardworking and attentive crew members. These per person tips can be pre-paid up to three days prior to sailing by calling Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532. If gratuities are not paid in advance, they will be charged to your stateroom account at the beginning of your sailing. Your stateroom account will be linked to a credit card placed on file during the online check-in. If you wait to have the gratuities added to your cruise account, you won't see these charges on your credit card statement until you return from your sailing. At the end of your cruise, you'll receive pre-paid vouchers with envelopes to place them in. We like to hand these out on the final night, but this is optional. If you feel like you want to give more money to your dining servers or stateroom host/hostess, you are welcome to add some cash to the envelope. Also, you can pay your gratuities in cash by visiting Guest Services on Deck Three.
    Thank you for stopping by with your question, Melita! 
    Have a "Wonder-ful" day!
