Yes it includes the tip.
If you are inclined when signing for the meal you can add to the tip if desired.

I was just on the Millenium and at the Olympic Restaurant.

Yes the tip is included and you don't even sign anymore, it gets billed directly to your room and shipboard account.

I'm sure if you feel like you want to tip, you can slip some cash. But there are so many waiters waiting on you, it might be confusing on who to tip.

Save your $$$. Did the Millenium last year. Ate at the Olympic. It was the worst meal of the cruise. Food was cold, tasless. Waiter s were rude. It was awful. And to add insult to a bad meal, they double charged us. It took months to undo the charge. Skip the Olympic. I don't need a goofy waiter to hold my arm and walk me to the restroom. I'd prefer a warm meal and pleasant service.

We ate at the Normandy (equivilant restaurant on Summit) on our fourth night out . The meal was so good we went back two nights later.
Service at every step was superb and the food was beyond extraordinary. Second time around we were greeted like old friends and service was even better if that was possible.

Tips are not expected.
But they are grateful for the little extra.

Last Time I left $5 per person and a phone card.

That phone card tip is an excellent idea. If you purchase a phone card in a port and don't use it all, the crew really appreciate it, because they will be returning to that port and can call home.
When I first ate in the Millennium Olympic the ship was on her second voyage. The fee was $12/person. Actually this was charged for an extra tip. This restaurant has it's own kitchen and chefs seperate from the main kitchen. I have eaten in all fo the Millennium class speciality restaurants and have seen the fee go to $25/per and now to $30/p.
If anyone was disatisfied they could probably get their tip money back if they wanted to complain. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this wonderful experience. Ernie Brognine on our South American cruise loved it.

Sorry about your unhappy experience in the Olympic and I totally disagree with your rating Have eaten at many of the special restaurants on several different lines and the Olympic was outstanding to include incredable food and oustanding service .Even ran into one couple who opted to eat every meal in the Olympic.My advice to those who have not tried this dining,you are missing an oustanding dining treat.My comparison includes several Holland Carnival and Rcl ships.

We ate at the Normandie on the Summit 2 years ago and it was very rich, very French, very delicious, but you could have rolled me out of there. The portions were larger than the regular dining room, more like a land restaurant. We paid $25/pp and my understanding it was all for the tip. We are doing the Summit again next January and don't know if we would do it again.
