They are support by just as many staff and crew who work hard behind the scenes to ensure you enjoy every moment of your cruise. For your convenience MSC Cruises automatically add a daily Hotel Service charge to your shipboard account, based on your chosen itinerary and the number of days for which the services are actually provided. The Hotel Service Charge serves to ensure we maintain the highest quality standards of service to our guests. The daily amounts below are calculated with this in mind and cannot be modified. However, should you wish to remove any of the daily Hotel Service Charge in the unlikely event that you do not receive satisfactory service, you may do so by contacting the Guest Relations Manager onboard. MSC cruises does not recommend tipping individual members of staff.
