Tipping on a Cruise

For your convenience, Carnival automatically charges the gratuities for dining and stateroom staff to your onboard Sail & Sign account.

The total amount is $12.00 per guest, per day. The breakdown is as follows:

Stateroom service team - $3.90 per day

Dining room service team - $6.10 per day

Alternative services team (galley, entertainment, guest services and other hotel staff members) - $2.00 per day

As a convenience gratuities will be automatically posted to your Sail & Sign account on the second day of your cruise. Once gratuities have been posted, you may adjust them at your discretion at any time while onboard. Gratuities will be deemed undisputed unless a request to modify is received prior to disembarking the ship.

For beverage purchases, fifteen percent of the bill is automatically added to the Sail & Sign charge. Room Service staff may be tipped as service is rendered.

Gratuities do not apply to guests less than 2 years of age.
