Read the full announcement from Disney Cruise Line:

Since our very first sailing, Guests have told us how much they enjoy their interactions with the Crew Members. Providing world-class service and creating life-long memories for our Guests are among the most common comments we receive. 

In recognition of all that they do, we have increased our recommended gratuity guidelines for select positions. The recommended increase is $0.25 per person/per day for the Assistant Dining Room Server, Dining Room Server, Dining Room Head Server and Stateroom Host/Hostess. The total recommended gratuity is $14.50 per person/per day based on the length of the cruise.

For Concierge Guests we have added the Assistant Stateroom Host/Hostess position to our recommended gratuities. The recommended gratuity is $15.50 per person/per day based on the length of the cruise for Concierge Guests. Additionally, our Concierge Guests often ask for guidance regarding gratuities for the Concierge Lounge Team. As a suggestion, we recommend $8 per Guest/per day for the voyage, but it is always up to the Guest to determine what they feel is appropriate.

Please note, gratuity amounts for Guests who added pre-paid gratuities to their reservation prior to July 2, 2022, will be protected.

This announcement comes as the Disney Wish approaches its maiden voyage later this month. It is currently hosting members of the media.

  1. Wouldn’t a better recognition be Disney paying their employees more instead of pushing it off on the guests who are already paying top rates for the experience?

  2. And you wonder with the articles you publish, why you weren’t invited on the media event.

  3. So, if I ‘m reading that correctly. For concierge guests they are recommending a higher gratuity for the Assistant Stateroom host/hostess, than for the regular Stateroom host/hostess.
