Default Break it down for me!! Please! Majesty

4 night/5 day cruise on Majesty. How much per person do we need to tip?

Asst. Waiter
Cabin Steward

Thanks! I want to make sure to put aside the right amount of cash. Not sure if I want to pre-pay and charge it if I can do cash!

Just FYI, the head waiter is the supervisor responsible for the waiters in the entire dining room. While the cruise lines will try to get you to tip him or her, we don't unless they do something extra for us. The ones you should tip are your table waiter, assistant waiter and cabin steward. We use the automatic billing to our on board account. It comes to $10 per person (that's per traveler) per day to cover all 3. You can do it in cash or give someone less or more depending on service received.

If you plan on the $10.00 per day, per person, that should cover it. Although if you should order room service, an extra tip is expected for that person who delivers it, its not your regular cabin attandent.
