detailed explaination of tips/gratuities for this newbie please
 
Hello guys! We have our first DCL vacay booked for Jan 14' and I'm still a little confused on how tips work and what we should expect to pay. It's a 4 nighter. Any help would be fantastic!
:rolleyes1

Tips for your stateroom host, server, asst. server, and head server will be automatically charged to your onboard account. This totals 12.00 per guest, per day. So for the 3 of you it would be (12.00x3 guests)x 4 nights = 144.00. This amount can be adjusted up or down at Guest Services.

When you order a drink from a bar, a 15% tip is automatically added to the bill. There is a line to add more if you wish.

Other things you may want to consider for tipping:
Porters
Room service
Spa
Palo or Remy
Excursions
Shuttle

Enjoy your cruise!

I also bring about $20 in $1 bills to use as tips for room service.
