Q. How much should I pay for tips?

Great service comes as standard.

While tipping isn’t required or expected on board, rest assured good service and good times are all part and parcel of your P&O Cruises holiday.

On other holidays you’ll tip the waiter after a fabulous dinner, the bar staff for your tropical cocktails, housekeeping for your fresh towels and inviting beds… On a P&O Cruises holiday, you’ll enjoy the same levels of fantastic service but tipping isn’t required or expected. Instead, you can relax and soak it all up, knowing good service and good times are all simply part and parcel of your experience.              

What does great service mean to you? We take thousands of guests away each year and know everyone wants something slightly different from their holiday. We take care of every little detail so you can enjoy an effortless time; free to relax, recharge and experience countless ‘this is the life’ moments. We’re proud that two out of three guests choose to holiday with us again and are committed to providing great service and exceptional holidays at no extra cost.


P&O do not charge a service charge when purchasing drinks onboard.
