Royal Caribbean automatically adds tips of $14.50 per person ($17.50 for suite passengers), per day to each passenger's onboard bill. The tips, which can also be prepaid, are shared by dining services staff, cabin attendants and other housekeeping personnel. Passengers who opt for RCI's flexible "My Time Dining" must prepay gratuities. Guidelines are the same for all passengers, regardless of age.
Passengers who believe they've received poor service may ask guest services to reduce or remove the automatic tips while on the ship. A 15 percent gratuity is automatically added to all bar bills, including mini-bar, as well as salon and spa services.
