Default tiping

My wife and I are taking our 2 daughters on a seven day cruise this Saturday. I am trying to budget $$$ for tips. Are you expected to tip the cabin attendant, head waiter, and assistant waiter the same amount for children as adults?

Hi Courtland,
Yes, I've always tipped the regular amounts for my kids, unless they are under the age of 2, from what I've read. The staff does go out of their way to make it special for kids, they do deserve the regular tips if not more.

On RCI, yes. The gratuities are the same for adult and child passengers. Other cruise lines have different gratuity standards for adult and for child passengers.

Thanks for the info. I've already calculated the tips and set that $$$ aside in individual envelopes so as not to spend it.

Thanks again
