Royal Caribbean gratuities increase for July or opt out

Royal Caribbean gratuities increase

If you are fed up with prices being increased everywhere you go, then you might not wish to read this piece of news. This is because Royal Caribbean has taken the decision to increase how much you pay for gratuities in July.

The increase will see the pre-paid amount go from $12.95 per day to $15.95 per person, per day for a suite, an increase of $1.70 per guest. Now we know that this is only the price of an ice cream, but if there was two of you on a two week cruise, this will mean you would have to pay an extra $47,60 extra on your cruise.

We can understand why there would be a mixed reaction from this news, because while many of you are happy to reward those that fall over backwards for you whole on your cruise, you should be given the opportunity to decide the reward yourself.

It is for this very reason why we may now see an increase in Royal Caribbean gratuities opt out requests. However, in order to do so you will need to go to Guest Services and ask for it to be removed.
