Gratuities for a 5 night

Can someone please tell me how much the gratuities are for the 5 night. I have them for the 3 night.

Thanks!

The suggested gratuties are $12 per guest per night. So for 1 person for a 5 night cruise it would be $60. That breaks out to $4 per guest per night for your stateroom host; $4 per guest per night for your server; $3 per guest per night for your asst server; and $1 per guest per night for your head server.

What about gratuities?
Answer
It is customary to give gratuities in recognition of service, which you will be treated to in abundance aboard the ship. As a guideline, we suggest the following, but gratuities are always at your discretion:

Per Guest per cruise 3-Night 4-Night 7-Night
Dining Room Server $12.00 $16.00 $28.00
Dining Room Asst. Server $9.00 $12.00 $21.00
Dining Room Head Server $3.00 $4.00 $7.00
Stateroom Host/
Hostess $12.00 $16.00 $28.00
Dining Manager Your Discretion
Room Service Your Discretion
Palo Gratuity included
Vista Spa & Salon Your Discretion
Babysitting Gratuity not expected
Port Adventures Optional;
not included in port
adventure price.

PP suggested gratuities are $12, per guest, per night. No, they haven't done the math for a 5 night for you but I think the formula provided is plenty sufficient to figure it out?

Your math is incorrect. The numbers you are adding up to $36 above needs to be divided by three to get a per-night rate.

All you need to know is that it breaks down to $12, per guest, per night.

Including your stateroom host, assistant, main and head servers. (So that's 4 crew members you are tipping.)

It is $60 per guest for a 5 night cruise.

No, what you posted is a total per guest PER CRUISE. Not per night.

What math?

The $12 per night breaks out to $4 - room host; $4 - server; $3 - asst server; 4! head server.

For a 5 night cruise 1 guest would pay $60. The break out being $20 - room host; $20 - server; $15 - asst server; $5 - head server.

OP would need to multiply how many persons are in the room times the number of nights times $12 to figure out total amount for tipping for them.

12 per night x 5 nights x 6 passengers = $360
