Here at Cruise Talk Central, we like to make cruise planning as easy as possible for all our readers. In response to a request from our readers we’ve now added a page that contains the tipping policy information from most of the major cruise lines. In summary, most cruise lines have a suggested tipping amount of $10 to $14 per day per person. In some cases this is an automatic charge, with passengers having to “opt-out” should they choose to tip with another method. Other lines require passengers to “opt-in” for the auto tipping. Most lines, even with auto tipping, allow for passengers to make adjustments to the amount should they deem necessary. Only the most upscale luxury lines include the tips in the cruise fare.
