Default Spa Service Tipping

I was wondering if anybody can give me a general idea on how much to tip for spa services rendered on board the ship. I went on my first cruise last summer and I tipped about $10.00 was that too little? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated so that when I go again this summer I have a better idea on how much to give out.

Depends on what you had done - I'd tip about 20% of the bill just like if you had been to a spa on land.

You need to ask the spa if they automatically add a gratuity to the service, as do the bars. Some lines do, others don't.
