Royal Caribbean raises gratuity by 8%

Royal Caribbean International plans to raise the suggested daily gratuity amount on its cruises from $12 to $12.95 per person.

Gratuities at the suggested amounts are automatically posted to a passenger’s shipboard account, but can be adjusted at guest services.

The 8% increase on standard cabins is scheduled to go into effect June 1. Booked passengers can lock in the old rate by pre-paying gratuities by that time.

In a post on its agent site, LoyaltoYouAlways.com, Royal Caribbean said the suggested gratuity for suite guests is being raised from $14.25 to $15.95.

Royal Caribbean last raised its suggested tip amount in February 2013, from $11.65 to $12.
