I've heard anywhere from $5-10 per person....some perhaps more.
I'm curious to hear of other people's responses to this question as well.

Still room for one more on May 4th IllumiNations Cruise

Hunclemarco, our plan (as of now) is to bump it to $400, especially if we fill the cruise. It would make it $40 per person, and just an easier amount of cash to have. Right now we have nine people. The tip would be $53.87, which would come out to about 16.6% tip (based on the $325 cost without the tax). If we don't end up filling the boat, I'm guessing we will do the same, but will ask everyone about it that night.
After writing all this, do we pay for the cruise first, and then tip the captain as we leave? That would certainly get rid of the change portion of the tip. I did the cruise once before, but was a passenger, so just handed my money over. This time I booked it.

Hi-
I had a few questions. We pay for the cruise at the Yacht club marina before casting off on the day of cruise? Also, if we're sharing, can we charge $X to one room/credit card and charge $X to another room/credit card? Thanks!

May 26th Illuminations cruise - single

Hi again everyone,

We now have room for a single on the night of Sunday, May 26th for the Illuminations cruise. Cost would be $40 and gratuity to Captain.

We are 3 separate parties of adults and this is the first crusie for all of us although we are "seasoned Disney goers."

Just to clarify the above cost...the $40 should be for everything, including the gratuity, correct?

We have room for one more on our May 4th cruise. Two couples, two women friends, and three solo travelers. Cost of the cruise should be $40 per person all inclusive if we fill the boat with one last cruiser. Email, pm or post here if interested!

cost re Illuminations

Hi Patty57.

Yes - if we get our last poerson to make up 10, the $40 would include the captain's gratuity. If we stay at 9 - the gratuity will be up to each party.

I'm a newbie so I can't PM yet but if you still have space available, I have 2 young adults who are very interested. I'll PM you once I get a few more posts under my belt.

Hi, does anyone want to share a Wishes premium cruise between August 3rd - 6th? There are 6 adults (3 couples in a family), so 4 spaces would be left. I haven't booked anything yet, as I will be on honeymoon when reservations open!
