What is the tipping norm for suite concierges?

Recommended Posts

I've had hit or misses with concierges. Some I've never talked to, others really didn't do much for me except direct me to someone else where I expected them to take care of it. I've never had them walk around the lounge to chat, they just sit at the desk waiting for you to come. If you use them and they are exceptional go for it, if you don't use them then a tip isn't warranted.

On our only cruise in suite we didn't tip the concierge but that was because our friend's genie did everything for us that the concierge was supposed to do.  The genie was who got a refund on a dining package refunded to the correct room after the concierge tried and it was refunded incorrectly.  The genie also walked the two of us off with our friends so our group wasn't separated getting through customs.  We gave the genie the tip that would have gone to the concierge.

I agree with 0-100. The last 3 cruises, I went directly to the concierge on night 1 before dinner in CK. I explained one of my kids needed a high chair and in the past we would wait up to 15 minutes to get one (night after night). I don’t know why it seems to be so difficult getting a high chair in CK. 

That’s all we use him for. If the high chair is there each night, he gets $100, reasonable time $50 and if I have to wait 0.00. 

Last 3 cruises have been $100 tips.

I also agree with 0-100 for 7 nights. 


Things that influence the amount for me include how many family members are using the lounge, how friendly the concierge is, how helpful they have been, and how often we use the lounge.


Don't forget to tip your bar servers in the lounge as well.
