Service Charges

During your cruise, you will meet staff throughout the ship who will provide you with excellent service. They are supported by just as many staff and crew who work hard behind the scenes to ensure you enjoy every moment on board

What are Service charges

SERVICE CHARGE
Each day, MSC Cruises will debit the Service Charge to your onboard account. The charge covers the onboard hospitality services actually enjoyed and is calculated according to the itinerary chosen and the number of nights. For further details of the amounts payable in each currency, please refer to the table below.
However, should you wish to adjust or cancel any of the daily hotel service charges in the unlikely event that you did not receive a satisfactory service, you may do so on board.

PREPAYMENT OF SERVICE CHARGE 

If you wish, the Daily Service Charge for your cruise can be added to the price of your cruise at
the time of booking, rather than added to your onboard account during the cruise. Please let your booking agent know if you if you would like to add the Service Charge to your cruise price.


Tips

MSC Cruises does not recommend tipping individual members of staff.


Bar Service Charge

A 15% Bar Service Charge is automatically added to all purchases.
