Where is this $57 per person price coming from? The price is $30.00. per person and is SOOOO worth it. You will enjoy a five star meal and 5 star sevice that would cost you hundreds of dollars ashore. No further tip is necessary, gram and I enjoyed our experience so much in Summit's Normandy restaurant on our last cruise we did it twice. We also left an additional $20 tip.
It is $30 per person but I beleave if you want to pay $27 more you can have a different wine with each coarse. That is where the $57 comes from. The Tip is included but if the service is as good as everyone says why not give a little more?????
We think a 20 tip is a good amount esp for the personal servcie you get in the specialty rest. . Also something extra for the sommelier is also a nice gesture--we only had one bottle so I think we gave $5.00 in addition to the 15% Wines are pricey.
To clarify..... there is no need to tip, of course if you wish go ahead, but if you read celebrities website...the $30 includes the tip.
