Default first timer..how to tip?

First cruise ever aboard the Celebrity's Horizon in Feb. How does this tipping stuff work? Do we tip the waiter at the end of the meal? At the end of the cruise? Do we tip th housekeeper on a daily basis or at the end? Are there gratuities added on? If so, are these indicated on a detailed bill?? Will the cruise lines provide guidelines once aboard? Is there someone who takes our luggage like a bellboy, and when do we tip him? Is there a place online where I can find this info?

Hi Jill,
When you receive your cruise docs, there will be a detailed list of what to tip each person, just follow those guidelines. Remember also, that it will be per person, per day. The last full day of the cruise, they will deliver envelopes where you can put the cash/tips into to give them that last night. Just leave the envelope in your cabin for the cabin attendant, he/she will be sure to find it!

You may want to also read through the section here at Cruisemates for more info and tips:
