P&O introduces tipping policy

By Michele Witthaus |

With the announcement of a new tipping policy, P&O Cruises joins a number of other cruise lines that automatically add tips to passengers’ bills.

An amount of £3.10 per day will be charged to all customers’ bills from April 2012. P&O Cruises managing director Carol Marlow said: “The new policy will see a recommended tipping rate added to a passenger’s onboard account on a daily basis. The recommended daily rate per person will be the same as has been in place for several years, namely £3.10, which is less than other cruise companies recommend as a daily rate.”

A P&O spokesperson told International Cruise & Ferry Review: “The tips are shared between the restaurant and accommodation teams and the daily per person amount may, of course, be altered, removed or increased as passengers feel appropriate.”
