Hi, We are cruising for the first time on Azamara Club Cruises and as part of our good deal our gratuities have already been paid. Does that mean ALL gratuities or is there any hidden one,s that might be sprung upon us.

Only if you want to be pampered in the spa. Just make the most of it and enjoy what we consider to be one of the best cruise lines going. ....Neil

My only suggestion would be if you order room service, it is customary to give a dollar or two, albeit not compulsory...........Wilba

Given that it's usually your 'butler' who brings it on Azamara, I can't see any need to tip them additionally. Azamara make no mention of the need to tip for room service.

The service charges on Azamara are now included in the price, whoever you book with. There are no hidden charges that may be sprung on you. The only service charge on the ship now is 18% on spa services. Enjoy your cruise.

Hi, although I haven't cruised with Azamara I have with Celebrity. I'm sure you'll find the paid gratuities are paid in full. This won't stop you giving a little extra to anyone you feel has given you that wee bit extra special attention if you want to do this. Happy cruising.
