We believe our crew members provide world class service and we hope you agree.
We do not add an automatic service charge to your account as we prefer that guests reward our crew solely based on their performance at the end of their cruise. If you would like to do so, any amount you feel appropriate is truly appreciated. However, for guests who might wonder what the typical amount is, at the Origin we suggest each of our passengers to leave in between US $300 – $350 per week which is the international standard for a luxury vessel like this. If you would like to leave your gratuity in cash, please feel free to use the envelope provided and drop it in the gratuity box that will be located in our lounge area. You could also charge the gratuity to your credit card by using your Visa or MasterCard.
On the Origin, gratuities are distributed among all crew members including naturalist guides.
We sincerely thank you for your recognition and hope to welcome you back soon.
