You will have $12 per person per day added to your onboard account that covers all of the basic tips. With few exceptions no additional tips are required. 15% will be added to your bar checks. Tips will be added to spa services.
The $12 covers your room stewards, wait staff, and those that help to make your trip special. If someone goes above and beyond your expectations a extra cash tip is appreciated but not expected or required.
