Default Re: Big family!!

I just like to figure out what the tips are before we leave and have that cash set aside and not have to worry about finding the correct bills, etc. There is a section in every cruiseline's brochure that explains the tipping guidelines. Yes, they are guidelines and are suggested, but I figure the tips are part of the whole cruise, so I figure them in at the rate of $10 per day, per person and in a lot of cases we adjust them and end up giving a little more depending on the level of service.

I have also cruised with my kids and have always tipped the same for them as for us, the staff goes out of their way to make the vacation special for the kids and they are just as much work, if not more, they deserve the tips as you will find out.
