yes...but the Disney term is "suggested" rather than minimum.

Ok I am a little confused with the tipping is it 48 a day or 48 total if its a day for three people thats an extra 576 sounds kinda steep for tips.

The suggested guideline is $12 per person per day. For three people that's $36 per day... on a 7-day cruise, that's $252.

The tips for 3 people would be $36.00 per day ($12.00 per guest per day). The $12.00 breaks out as: $4.00 per guest per day for your room host; $4.00 per guest per day for your server; $3.00 per guest per day for your asst server; and $1.00 per guest per day for your head server.

I don't know where you're getting $48.00 a day? How long is your cruise?

Suggested is $12/day/person, so $36 per person for a 3 day cruise, $48 for a 4, etc. For 3 people on a 4 day cruise, it is $144.

Keep in mind that you are "eating out" every day on the ship, and you tip servers when you go out to eat. The tips received by passengers also makes up the majority of their income.

Thank you for the answers it come to about 144 for the three of us on a 4 night cruise. I always tip we make special envelopes for mouse keeping ( anyone who clean my bathroom gets extra money lol ) what I was confused on was the servers this is my first cruise that we keep the same servers NCL has freestyle cruising and you don't have the same servers . Thanks again love these boards you guys are always so helpful
