Embarking on a cruise vacation is an exciting adventure. You’ll have the opportunity to explore new places and meet fellow travelers with similar interests. Before you head out on your vacation cruise, it’s important to understand the proper etiquette for tipping while you’re on board.
Many crew members on your cruise earn a large portion of their income from tips, so tipping is essential. Some cruise lines have recommended guidelines for dollar amounts or percentages you should tip, but remember that outstanding service should always be reflected in your tip. Etiquette states that you should tip for each member of your party, including children and toddlers. Youngsters can be a bit messy in your room or in the dining room, and it’s polite to acknowledge that by way of a tip.
