We're on the Golden on 11-9 and they told us it's 10.00 per day on this ship as well.
Have a terrific cruise.

By the way - if you find a good waiter in the dining room would love to know about it so that we can request him - that is if you have PC dining.

Sharon,

The default amount is $10.00 per passenger per day, but the purser's desk will change it to whatever amount the passenger wishes upon request -- including to zero for those who prefer to tip in the traditional way.

Norm.

Gary & Hugger,

Good grief! The tipping policy is the same aboard ALL Princess ships!

Norm.

Thanks for the info. Does the $10.00 include the person who tidies up your cabin or is that separate?
We will have PC dining, I will let you know how it is.
Can't wait for the 12th of Oct to get here!

Just jumping in here. The suggested amount for traditional tipping is $3.50/day/person for the room steward and waiter and $2/day/pp for the assistant waiter. Then there is less suggested if one wants to tip the head waiter or Maitre'd. If you add up those numbers, they come to $9.00 so the other $ of the ten that's charged to one's room most likely goes to them.

What I was disappointed to find out is that these tips are shared. So if one has a really good waiter and wants to reward them, they can't keep that money but have to share it with possibly some lousy wait staff people. I think that's a poor policy that doesn't promote giving people the best service.
