Gratuities Included

Gratuities are already part of the all-inclusive offerings, therefore, conventional tipping practices, such as at the end of a meal, for example, are not necessary and discouraged. Residents may, however, choose to provide extra gratuities from time to time at their discretion in private or for excursion operators and other services they may engage in on shore.

The Storylines ‘All-inclusive’ Lifestyle

Take a moment to imagine the reality of: 

Waking up late and enjoying breakfast with a billion-dollar-view. You enjoy a quick morning swim in the sunshine while housekeeping cleans your room. Next you meet up with friends who have decided to skip onboard activities for the day to explore the local markets for some exotic specialities. 

You return to your home in the afternoon for a well deserved siesta and some pampering in the Spa and Wellness Center. Choosing from 20 dining and bar concepts onboard, you pick something light such as champagne and oysters on the balcony, before heading out in the evening to dance with some local people you met at the markets.

Enjoying the local scene, you listen to a live band making new memories with new friends as you dance under the stars and return to your global residence and fall into bed – enveloped in crisp white sheets as you contemplate the day with sore feet and a huge smile. 

You think: ‘Tomorrow I will do nothing but enjoy lazing by the pool and ordering room-service. Oh, maybe a foot massage at the Spa?  Mmmm yes. Just perfect!”
