Quarantine Ends for Diamond Princess Cruise Ship in Japan

The 14-day quarantine for the Coronavirus hit Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan has now come to an end.

P&O Cruises has decided to increase its daily gratuity amount as of today.

The new daily gratuity amount is being increased by P&O Cruises which is based in the UK. The previous amount was £5.00 but as of today across the fleet, the amount is £6.00. The charge affects all passengers 12 years of old and over. This is the amount per day which is automatically charged to the onboard account.

The cruise line provided Cruise Critic with a statement which is as follows:

“For cruises departing March 27 2017 onwards, the daily amount for each guest aged 12 and over is £6.00. The Service Reward appears on the account as a ‘service charge’.

“Should any guest wish to reward a crew member personally in addition to this or if they wish to vary the amount in any way they may do this at reception on board.”

The gratuities are known as the Service Reward Programme on P&O Cruises. The amount can, of course, be adjusted at the end of the cruise and we really don’t suggest to remove the amount as it does go towards the crew members pay. The cruise line also recommends guests to give a higher amount to those crew members who have gone above and beyond during their voyage.
