Hi Janet,

Here are the tipping recommendations from the RCI site:

Quote:
What are gratuity guidelines for cruises?
So that you can thank those who have made your cruise vacation better than you could have imagined, we've developed these gratuity guidelines:
Suite attendant: $5.75 USD a day per guest
Stateroom attendant: $3.50 USD a day per guest
Dining Room Waiter: $3.50 USD a day per guest
Assistant Waiter: $2.00 USD a day per guest
Headwaiter: $.75 USD a day per guest
Note: These gratuities apply to guests of all ages.
Gratuities for other service personnel are at your discretion. A 15% gratuity will automatically be added to your bar bill or wine check when you are served.

Envelopes for gratuities will be provided in your stateroom on the last night of the cruise. Gratuities may be paid in the following ways:
Pre paid by having them added to your reservation by your booking agent.
Added to your onboard SeaPass account.
Paid in cash at the end of the cruise
As Donna said, you'll have the same cabin attendant throughout your cruise. Unless the service is really bad we always add to our cabin attendant's tip.

Hi Donna,

Does RCI not do the "$10.00 pp per day", like the other cruise lines? Their "recommendations" add up to $9.75 pp per day. Just curious...
