NO, not on P&O. The prices you see are the prices you pay! They are one of the few cruise lines that do not do this. Because of this, you will not be hounded by drinks waiters on deck keep on asking you if you would like a drink, as on some other lines! You will however, be expected to tip the staff who look after your cabin and table at dinner, at the end of the cruise. Along with anyone else that you think worthy of it. i.e. Wine waiter. Happy cruising.

On P&O the gratuity is included in the price and you dont need to tip further. Having said that P&O prices are amongst the cheapest on cruise lines .

P&O recommend total gratuities of £3.75 per passenger per day. If you choose freedom dining, where available, P&O will add £1.60 per day to your onboard account to cover the waiters tips!. Happy cruising.

After an amazing trip to Lapland and a fantastic Christmas with the family our festivities were cut short as I was taken into hospital just after Christmas. Unfortunately I had to spend nine days there and have emergency operation on New Years day! As you can imagine this was not how I planned to see in the new year but as we all know these things happen and I am very grateful to have been very well looked after and now recovered.I was very well looked after by our amazing NHS, I know they ge...

What No Kisses On My Pillow?!!

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

10 years ago a tradition of the nightly turn down service on ships was a Chocolate Kiss on your pillow but this now seems to be a thing of the past according to a recently returned cruise passengerI hear all the time from passengers that ‘standards are not what they used to be’ with less and less being included and more and more being an added payable extra – Are cruise lines cutting corners just too much?Even the Berlitz Guide author commented that standards are slipping in...
