    I'm wondering how much I can anticipate gratuity to be on my dining package? I'd like to have dinner at some of the nicer places, but I am concerned that I've already payed for the dining package and then have to pay a high gratuity also.

    Hi Chrystal,

    When you are on the dining plan, you will receive a "check" at the conclusion of your meal with any expenses that were not included on your plan (for example, alcoholic beverages).  There will also be a section with suggested gratuities that provide the dollar amount that 18% and 20% would amount to based on what your bill would have been had you paid in cash without the dining plan.  The amount you actually leave, however, is entirely up to you, as the amounts provided on the bill are merely suggested gratuities. 

    I hope this clarifies your question.

    Have wonderful vacation!
