Gratuities can really vary with cruise line, some from a required added service charge to others with no tipping at all. It is always best to know beforehand how much Gratuities are so that you can add this into your budget when planning your cruise.

Once all the featured cruise lines had been converted into GBP (British Pounds) we could clearly compare the price of gratuities. As you can see, P&O Cruises have the cheapest tips for adults and they also don't charge for children under 12.
The gratuities go to the workers in all areas of the ships to reward them for their quality service to the passengers on board.
Although some cruise lines do include tips we decided to compare the ones that don't include them.
