Default Does Royal automatically include the automatic tipping?

Or do I have to tell them to add it to my account when I check in?

I didn't do this on my last cruise, but plan on doing it in July.

Thanks.

RCI does not use the auto-tipping as some other lines do. However, you can go to the Purser's Desk and ask for the tips to be put on your card. You will get some envelopes and a voucher to put into each envelope.

Default auto tipping

When I bought my cruise, it gave me the option to do the auto tipping. They did not do it automatically.

Your room steward will include a form with your debarkation information and immigration forms a couple days before the end of your cruise which you can fill out and add your gratuities to your onboard account. There is a drop box at the pursers desk you can drop the form into after you fill it out and they will do it for you.

We always include our tips at the time of booking it's easier for us that way.
