Default Tips and Shipboard Credit


Previously, when we sailed on Princess Cruise, we were able to use our shipboard credit for the tips. Can you do so with RCCL?

Sure--it's your "money", so to speak--you can use it for what you want! If you do the tip thing, you'll get vouchers to hand out that last night, so no one will think they've been "stiffed"!

If you are talking about onboard credits, (money that is in an account on your seapass card) , yes that can be used for tips. You will receive a paer in your cabin if you would like to pay for your tips with vouchers, if you fill out that form, the tips will be charges with your seapass card and the vouchers will be given to you in your stateroom.

For example, if you have 400.00 onboard credit on your account and the tips are 150.00 for the vouchers, you will have 250.00 left on your account in onboard credit!
