Gratuity Guidelines

Gratuities (tipping) are now included in your cruise fare when booking in Australian Dollars.
Any additional tips are at your discretion.

Guarantee' (GTY) Bookings

From time to time, we may offer you the option of making what we call a 'Guarantee (GTY) booking. This means you may book a stateroom of a guaranteed category type (Interior, Oceanview, Balcony or Suite) on your chosen ship and cruise. However, the exact grade, number and location of the stateroom on the ship will be allocated by us (at our discretion) and at any time until checking in at the Port. Once your GTY stateroom has been allocated to you, we are unable to accept any changes requested by you. The benefits to you of a GTY stateroom are that after your booking has been confirmed, we may (at your discretion) upgrade your stateroom to one of a superior category to that originally booked at no extra charge to you. In any event, you are 'guaranteed' the minimum category of stateroom we agree to offer at the time of booking. At times, we may offer promotional GTY offers.

Such promotional GTY categorise are defined as follows:
W – Suite/Deluxe

XA – Aqua Class Cabin

XC – Concierge Class Cabin

X – Balcony cabin

Y – Oceanview cabin

Z – Interior cabin

Please note: If you book 2 more cruises to be taken consecutively (back to back) and either one or all cruises are booked under a GTY basis, you may be allocated different staterooms on each cruise, therefore necessitating the need to move between staterooms on the changeover day between your consecutive cruises.

Onboard Credits

From time to time we may offer Onboard credit promotions. An onboard credit is monetary amount in US Dollars which is applied to your onboard account for onboard purchases. Some Onboard credits may not be combinable with other offers, please check with your Travel Agent. Any unused portion of the Onboard Credit will expire at midnight on the last night of your cruise and is not redeemable for cash at any time. Onboard Credit is not transferable between any cruises, including consecutive cruises.

Dining onboard

You have a choice of 3 options for dinner in the Main Dining Room. These are subject to availability at the time of booking.

  • Fixed Seating – dine at the same reserved table each night on either early or late sitting (approx 6pm and 8.30pm respectively)

  • Celebrity Select Dining (Open seating) – giving guests flexibility with their evening dining. You can decide when you would like to dine between the hours of 6pm and 8.30pm each night. If Celebrity Select Dining is selected, prepaid gratuities/tips are required to be included at time of booking.

Special Needs and Diets

Guests must notify us of any dietary requirement at time of booking. If you have any special dietary needs, Celebrity cruises can accommodate the following special dietary needs onboard: food allergies, gluten free, vegetarian, diabetic, low-fast, low-sodium and low-cholesterol. Other special diets such as Kosher and lactose meals may be available upon advanced request. Note: Kosher meals are pre packed and are only available for dinner in the main restaurant. Celebrity cruises does not provide baby food.

Please note that whilst we are able to take requests for the specific dietary requirements and take note of food intolerances, this is confined to the Main Dining Room on each ship. We are unable to guarantee or accept responsibility that the food served in any other food establishment onboard our ships will be able to cater for specific dietary requirements and food intolerances.

Travelling with Children

Infants sailing on a cruise/cruise tour must be at least 6 months old as of the first day of the cruise/cruise tour. However, for Transatlantic, Transpacific, Hawaii, and selected South American and other cruises/cruise tours, the infant must be at least 12 months old (as of the first day of the cruise/cruise tour). Denial of boarding for infants who do not satisfy these minimum age requirements may also result in the denial of boarding for one or more guests sailing with that infant. No refunds or other compensation shall be due from the cruise line to anyone as a result of the denial of boarding to an under-age infant or other accompanying guests.

Unaccompanied Minors

No guest under the age of 21 will be booked in a stateroom unless accompanied by an adult 21 years or older. This age limit will be waived for minor children sailing with their parents or guardians in adjacent staterooms and for legally married couples between the age of 18­21. Proper, legal documentation showing proof of marriage will be required. An individual’s age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise vacation.

Travel Documents and Identification requirements

Passports, visas and vaccinations are your responsibility.

Without the necessary passport, visas and/or vaccinations, local authorities may deny you boarding, prevent you from going ashore, issue a fine or deny the ship entry into the port. Guests who do not possess the proper documentation may be prevented from boarding the flight or ship or from disembarking or entering a country and may be subject to fines.

VERY IMPORTANT:

No refunds will be given to individuals who fail to bring proper documentation.

Please check with a travel agent, government agencies, embassies, consulates, your physician or local health departments to determine travel and health documentary requirements.

Guests under the age of 16 who wish to go ashore unaccompanied will be required to have a consenting parent, guardian or other responsible adult with them at the gangway to provide their signature as authorization.

Embarkation Forms

In order to make your boarding process as simple as possible, we offer an online method of providing information we need before you can embark on the vessel. Just visit www.celebritycruises.com to fill out your embarkation forms.

Note: Applicable laws and regulations may require Celebrity Cruises to collect and pass on to governmental and other authorised bodies certain personal and other details related to you. If you fail to supply the details requested fully and accurately, you may not be permitted to board the ship. If, as a result of your failure to comply with the foregoing, Celebrity incurs any fines, surcharges or other financial penalty, you will be responsible for reimbursing us accordingly.

Cruise Documents

Guest cruise documents provide information relevant to the sailing. Normally, documents will be received by the travel agent 20–50 days prior to sailing, assuming cruise elements are finalised and payments made.

Regardless of document status, no one will be allowed passage unless his or her name appears on the ship’s guest manifest.

Embarkation/Boarding Process

Boarding normally begins at 2:00 pm. It is the guest’s responsibility to arrive on time. Please check with your travel agent to confirm boarding and departure times. For international guests we recommend you allow at least two hours for the boarding process. Failure to check in at least 60 minutes in advance will constitute a no show. Your booking will be cancelled and cancellation charges will be assessed.

Note: For security reasons, guests are not allowed to bring visitors on board Celebrity vessels in any port.

Alcohol policy

The minimum drinking age for all alcoholic beverages on all Celebrity Cruises ships is twenty one (21). However on International cruises departing from any port other than North America, where the legal drinking age is typically lower than 21, a parent or legal guardian who is sailing with his or her son(s) and/or daughter(s) who is between the ages of 18 to 20, may sign a waiver allowing the 18 to 20 year old to consume alcoholic beverages. The 18 to 20 year old guest must agree to comply with Celebrity’s policies, including among other things, agreeing to not provide alcoholic beverages to any other person, regardless of age. Restrictions apply and this policy is subject to change without notice.

Please note: An individual’s age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise vacation. Guests who violate any alcohol policies, may be disembarked or not allowed to board, at their own expense, in accordance with our Guest Vacation Policy.

Shore Excursions

Please book your excursions as soon as possible since some shore excursions can accommodate only a limited number of participants. Tours are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and we recommend that you purchase them in advance of your cruise in order to avoid disappointment. Please visit www.royalcaribbean.com for online booking details. Onboard, you may purchase tours at the front desk or directly at the Shore Excursion Office during the hours advertised in the ship’s daily program. Unused shore excursions are non-refundable once booked.

Guest behaviour policies

On every Celebrity vessel, we are committed to providing every guest with a cruise vacation that is a touch above. To further ensure that you and your fellow guests receive exactly that, we have developed a set of Guest Behaviour Policies that is available on board. We thank you in advance for your compliance.
