    If I purchase a travel package for my family of 4, and my mother and my sister (who will be coming with us) purchase a separate travel package, will we still be subjected to the 18% gratuity policy just b/c we r dining together? We both have Deluxe Dining.

    Hi Kelli, Any time a party of six or more is dining at the same table, there will be an 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill, regardless of whether there are separate checks or separate sub-parties within the group. I really wouldn't worry about this too much. A gratuity rate of 18% has become the norm at restaurants throughout the U.S. That's likely close to the tip rate you'd be paying anyway. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if we can provide additional assistance.
