Cunard Increase Tips!
Either you love it, or hate it automatic tipping has become the norm for the cruise industry. Ever since it has become standard to charge a fixed amount per person, per day to your stateroom, the amount has been slowly creeping up. So it comes as no surprise, that Cunard have announced they will be increasing the amount of gratuity charged per guest. This will take effect from the 7th of April 2013 on the QE and 26th April on the QV and QM2 .
It has been some time since Cunard have increased the amount they charge but, they have compared their charges against many other leading cruise lines and are confident that by applying a small increase they will not be out of line. At the same time - and very importantly this will increase the amount they collect to be shared amongst those crew on board who earn gratuities.
As usual this charge will automatically be added to guests accounts and all other terms and conditions surrounding the auto gratuities will remain the same. Guests will be advised of the amount through their pre voyage information and through Voyage Personaliser.
So who will be next? As when one changes others usually follow!
