New Ships by Cruise Line

Gratuities is the terms used by cruise lines for 'Service Charges' or 'Tips' and unless included as part of fare are usually charged per person per day for the duration of your cruise. These 'tips' go to the staff who serve you throughout your cruise to make sure you have a wonderful experience; some you'll meet such as your room steward or your restaurant staff but also some behind the scenes staff you may not meet.

While you can prepay your gratuities (make sure you check whether any quotation you receive includes gratuities or not) it is typical for these to be charged at the end of your cruise. 

NB: While gratuities are automatically applied you are generally entitled to request them to be removed. You can also tip the staff you received exemplary service from directly.  

Some cruise lines will add a 'Bar Service Charge' on top of drinks prices listed which can make those 'bargain' prices not so much of a bargain - it's important to know what you're really paying...
