Tip Calculator

To use the Gratuity/Tip Calculator enter the number of nights of your cruise and the number of people in your sailing party. 

Ultimately, tipping is at your discretion, but for convenience the calculator’s default tips are set to Disney Cruise Line’s suggested amounts.

The following positions are not part of the gratuity calculator:

  • Dining Manager – Your Discretion
  • Room Service – Your Discretion
  • Dinner at Palo & Remy – An 18% gratuity will automatically be applied; additionally gratuity at your discretion.
  • Brunch at Palo & Remy – ncluded in dining charge; additional gratuity at your discretion.
  • Senses Spa & Salon – An 18% gratuity will automatically be applied to all spa services
  • Babysitting – Gratuity not expected
  • Port Adventures – Optional; not included in Port Adventures price
  • OTHER – an 18% gratuity is automatically added to bar, beverage, wine and deck service tabs. (This is up from 15% as of July 2021)

Disney Cruise Line offers multiple options to pay for your suggested gratuity:

  • Pay the suggested gratuity in advance by contacting Disney Cruise Line or your travel agent no later than 3 days before your cruise begins
  • Pay by automatically having the suggested gratuity added to your onboard account prior to the end of your cruise

If you wish to charge the amount of a gratiuity or pay the gratuity in cash, please contact Guest Services, once onboard the ship.

Please note, DCL increased the recommended base gratuities in January 2019.
