Tipping on a Cruise

Individual ship profiles will provide precise guidelines for tipping on any ship. Guidelines will be repeated on board, probably by your ship's cruise director. Gratuities are placed in envelopes from your cabin's stationery supply. Generally, passengers on cruises of 10 days or less will tip at the end of the cruise. On longer voyages, tipping weekly may be the norm.
