We are beginning our cruise on the Millennium next week. On our invoice it states that we have pre-paid an on board service charge. I'd like to know exactly what that covers and know what additional charges for services will be added to my on-board account. Also, is it possible to get an update on how much you have spent on the charge account?

This site is great, it's been so useful and has answered loads of my questions, thanks so much.

Hi Lass,

If you have pre-paid your gratuities, it usually covers your room steward, waiter, assistant waiter and the head waiter. If you order drinks from the bar, a service charge is automatically added into the total before you sign for them, so don't add an additional tip onto that.

Other service charges you may want to add on are for any spa services you decide to have.

At any time during your cruise, you can go to the Purser's Desk and ask them for a list of charges that have been made so far to your room. They'll print it up and give it to you.

Also you can look at your bill during your cruise anytime on the TV. Very easy to use, even I can do it.
