Tipping concierge ?

Can you put the tip on your credit card? Not sure how you tip them . Do you get a envelope for them as you do the dining room and stateroom host ?

Yes, you can put it on your credit card, or give them cash. You do get one envelope. The do split the tips equally.

FYI, there is no envelope for the bartender who serves your drinks there daily. We gave her cash at the end. She rocked!

There is no average. It is up to you. DH asked a guy he became friendly with and he tipped 100.00/day (so 700 for our cruise) . Nope he wasn't in the Royal....LOL. It is really up to you. There are many threads here on that topic. I will tell you that their salary is now just the tips, which really kinda sucks. But I guess in the long run they might make more? But who knows...

We had 3 on our last cruise and in talking with others in the concierge level they tipped between $75 and $100 each for a 7 day cruise.

What if you really don't use their services, no booking excursions, no real request other than to sit in the lounge for a quick bite? Still 100.00 a day?

$100 per person per day for concierge? Wow that's scary. And there was me thinking that paying more for the service in the first place meant a tip wasn't necessary at their level.

It appears there's a wide range. On other threads, people report tips being much much lower.

No clue about average.

We were on a three-night and didn't really use the services other than happy hour. We did enjoy chatting with them at times. If I remember correctly, we tipped them $150 (I believe total) and the girls who did the drinks $20 each.

My parents had cash so that's what we used.

Thanks for sharing what you did. Was your tip, in addition to the suggested tip that they can automatically charge to your card? Just trying to figure out how much cash we will need to bring. Thanks!

The concierge(s) are not included in the auto tip. It is discretionary.

What Bear said. There is no auto-gratuity for concierge (which makes it weird that allegedly their only salary is from tips which nothing is ever said about. EVER.).

Thanks Bear and Dug720. I didn't realize that. Is that just for stateroom? Will they auto tip for our servers?
