Gratuities on Celebrity

Recommended Posts

Apologies for raising this thorny problem again.

Perhaps if any member has been on Celebrity Cruises  recently ,could advise if gratuities can be adjusted/removed at reception as with other cruise lines.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Forum 😀

And Yes you can at the time of booking opt out by not PrePaying the Tips, they will then unless you tell them take a daily amount, but you can get these removed at reception, or adjust them up or down? as you wish.

Must say as a Celebrity fan their Recommended tipping rates are eye watering....Davybe

From Their web site?

  5. What are onboard tips and gratuities? 


If you have not taken the option to pre-pay your tips and gratuities, we will automatically add them to your onboard SeaPass account for your restaurant and stateroom services. They will be added in following amounts: $14.50 per person per day for guests in Interior, Oceanview and Balcony staterooms, $15.00 per person per day for guests in Concierge Class and AquaClass staterooms and $18.00 per person per day for guests in Suites. A standard service charge of 18% is automatically added to the price of drinks and 15% is added for beauty treatments. 

Please note that bookings made prior to 2 January 2018 will have until the cruise departure date to pre-pay their gratuities at the old rate.

The tips and gratuities are discretionary and therefore you are free to adjust the amounts. Pre-paid tips and gratuities will be calculated at the time of booking in UK Sterling. 

Celebrity Galapagos: All onboard gratuities are included in the price of your Galapagos cruise. This covers all Service Personnel including the waiters and head waiters who look after you in the dining rooms, housekeeping staff, your Butler and Stateroom Attendants.
