Prepaid gratuities
My agent has asked us to prepay gratutities. How will I feel on the last night when other people at my table come to dinner and extend the envelopes to the wait staff. Will I look like a cheap dud? How do they know if you prepaid?

Re: Prepaid gratuities
I"m confused; why does your TA care about the gratuities? You usually have the choice to pay them the traditional way (envelopes at the end of the cruise) or adding them to your account. Tell him/her YOU'LL decide how they will be paid. I' ve never had a TA even mention tips, let alone tell me how to pay them. Unless Celebrity is doing something different recently ( 8 seven cruises with them so far), handle it the way you so fit.

Re: Prepaid gratuities
Our waiter told us that on the last day of the cruise the tips are posted in the crew area.
We did the automatic plus extra at the table. Service was just so gooood..........

Re: Prepaid gratuities
Once you get aboard, you will be able to pre-pay the gratuities.

As Bob said, " I"m confused; why does your TA care about the gratuities?" Not sure at all what business it is of theirs.

If you are dealing directly with Celebrity and by "agent" you mean one of theirs, the same story, just wait until you get onboard.

My nickles worth is don't pre-pay your grautuites with you booking.
