Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We are going on a 4 days Bahamas Cruise on January 19th on de disney dream. We are a party of 4(2 adults and 2 Kids) Can you tell me aproximately the amount I have to pay for gratuities?
- - Asked by MARCELA on 1/8/2014
- Welcome aboard, Marcela! It's only a week until you set sail on the Disney Dream! What fun!
Gratuities are now being pre-paid and charged to your stateroom account, so you shouldn't have to worry about how to tip at this point. On the final night of the cruise, you'll receive tip envelopes and a receipt to put in each one showing the amount you've tipped that is charged to your stateroom account. Traditionally, the tips that are pre-paid are as follows. These are per person (including children), per night:
Assistant Server: $3
Head Server $1
Stateroom Host: $4
With four family members on a four-night Dream sailing, your total tips will be $192. You're always welcome to add extra if you've had particularly excellent service from one or all of the Cast Members! Sometimes we'll put some extra cash in the envelopes of the Cast Members who have really been our favorites. You are always welcome to adjust gratuity amounts by stopping by Guest Services, as the final call is at your discretion.
The only other tips you might consider are tips for guides on Port Adventures and tips for those Cast Members who deliver your complimentary room service orders. We bring some small bills to have on hand for these times.
I hope that helps you budget for your upcoming trip on the Dream, Marcela! Have a wonderful cruise!
