We will be sailing on the Enchantment at the end of April. I understand a ship is a cashless society and tipping is reserved for the end, but if I get spa services done should I tip? My husband and I were exploring the option of a couples massage.

Yes, A 10-15% gratuity is appropriate.

Hello, we were on the Enchantment in Dec, and we got a couples massage. It was our first couples massage, we usually do our spa stuff separately. It was great, any massage is. But, I think I enjoyed the solitude of being alone better. Sometimes, silence is golden!!. Anyways, you add the tip on the register receipt. Like you do in a restaurant. The tip is NOT included in the spa price, it is extra. Anyways, they can be very pushy to buy there products. They are pretty expensive, although nice. I always tell them I already bought some products. Well, enjoy the Enchantment, she is beautiful. Bye the way, the "Chops Grill" is wonderful. If you enjoy a awesome steak, it is worth the extra $20 a person. Enjoy! Lil' Lori

Also, make sure you check out the specials they have for the days the ship is in port. We were on the Enchantment in December and they had a lot of really good specials. The previous poster is correct, they really push the products at the end of the spa services, to the point of almost ruining the experience for me. Have fun, the Enchantment is a great ship!

Thank you both for the comments. I figured a tip was not included but it helps to make sure! I've been reading all your posts Lil' Lori about the Enchantment and they have been wonderful. We are traveling with 2 other couples and I told them what you said about Chops Grill. We will have to see what they want to do. We have everything ready to go! Our excursions are booked for Ocho Rios and the Caymens, we all checked in on-line and now were counting down. If it wasn't for this board I would not have been so prepared!
