Cruise Lines Increase Automatic Gratutity Charges and Recommended Tipping

Prompted by the recent announcement that Carnival has updated their tipping information on their web page with an increase from $10 a day per person to $11.50 per day per person, Cruise Talk had made a complete update to all of our listed cruise companies tipping policies and rates.

Lines with increases since 2009 include Disney, Holland America, NCL, Oceania, Princess, Royal Caribbean, P&O, and Cunard. Most increases are in the $1.50 to $3.00 per person per day range.
