Default Can I prepay tips for my parents cruise?


We have given our parents a cruise to Alaska for their wedding anniversary.
It will be their first cruise. It is going to be a sursprise
Can I prepay their tips for them before hand using my visa?
They will be using their own card to get their sea pass when they board.
They do not really know the ins and outs of tipping on a cruise line so am trying to make it easier for them.
I have a crown and anchor # so do you think if I call Royal Carribean crown and anchor that they could do it for me?
I have their booking # and all infor.

HI Lisa,
Yes, you can call and you can also put the amount as a credit on their account that they can use for the tips if they won't automatically put them in as a tip. Never hurts to ask, good luck.
