Cunard Gratuity Charges

Information Update
Cunard Gratuity Charges

It has been some time since we have increased the amount we charge our guests on a daily basis for gratuities.  We have benchmarked our own charges against many other leading cruise lines and are confident that by applying a small increase we will not be out of line.  At the same time - and very importantly - this will increase the amount we collect from our guests to be shared amongst those crew on board who earn gratuities.
As such, we will be increasing our existing gratuities as follows:-
Britannia Staterooms:  increasing from US$11 to US$11.50 per person per day
Princess Grill and Queens Grill Suites: increasing from US$13 to US$13.50 per person per day
This increase will take effect from all voyages post World and Exotic Voyages 2013 and will begin from the following voyages:-
Queen Elizabeth : Q308 - Iberian Adventure - Sunday 7 April 2013
Queen Victoria: V304 - Spring Getaway - Friday 26 April 2013
Queen Mary 2: M304 - Westbound Transatlantic - Friday 26 April 2013
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.   We will be amending all future printed and online information to reflect this.
