    What are tipping or fees on disney cruise ship

    Ahoy, Anthony!

    Thank you for stopping by to "sea" us with your question! It looks like from your sail date that you are casting off for a Bahamian adventure this February. Your crew will fall in love with the Disney Dream and all she has to offer including first-run movies, delicious dining, Broadway-style productions, lively games shows, phenomenal youth spaces and much more! Lots of magical moments will be shared, and you'll leave this vacation with many special memories! 

    Part of what makes a Disney Cruise Line vacation so unique is the amazing Cast and Crew! They are there to make sure you have the most wonderful time while you're aboard, so gratuities are the customary way to say thank you! These are always at your discretion, but on your 3-night sailing, you can expect to pay $12.00 per Guest for your Dining Room Server, $9.00 per Guest for your Dining Room Assistant, $3.00 per Guest for your Dining Room Head Server and $12.00 per Guest for your Stateroom Host/Hostess. Room service is included, but I like to bring along some small bills to tip the attendants that deliver our food. You'll also notice an 18 percent gratuity fee added to any spa or salon services at the Senses Spa and Salon and a 15 percent fee for bar service. I also always make sure to have some cash to tip the porters that help with luggage at the cruise terminal and cruise tour operators on Port Adventures.

    Anthony, your gratuities will be charged to your stateroom account so you will not need to bring cash along for these charges. You'll receive pre-paid vouchers in your stateroom by the last night to show that you were charged the correct amount.  

    I hope this helps, Anthony! Please let us know if you have other questions.

    Have a Dream-y day!
