To keep our readers informed on the latest price increases, here are the fees on cruises that are going up this week.
Celebrity Cruises is raising their daily gratuities by $1 per person, per day. The cruise line’s new gratuity rates go into effect on January 6, 2020 and will be as follows:
- $15.50 per person, per day in standard accomodations
- $16.00 per person, per day for Concierge Class and AquaClass staterooms

This gratuity is shared by your stateroom attendant, dining services staff, and housekeeping staff members who help enhance your vacation experience. At your discretion, the gratuity payments may be adjusted onboard at Guest Relations, in which case they will not automatically be added to your onboard SeaPass account. A 20% gratuity will be automatically added to all beverages, mini bar purchases, spa and salon services. Additional gratuities may be added at your discretion.
