Default Tips for Kids program?

Are tips expected for the people who are involved in the kids programs or are they compensated appropriately by the cruise line? Need info for my daughter.

I don't know if the kids program crew is a part of the general "tip" fund or not...my bet is they are not but probably get paid much better than the waiters and cabin stewards.

On our last cruse we _did_ tip them as our 3 kids spent a fair amount of time there (ages 8, 14, 17).

The kids staff isn't a part of the tip pool. They are paid very well and have officer privleges.

Default Yes,Tip the Youth Staff

Yes, the staff do appreciate being tipped.

Not sure were CJH gets his info from re: kids staff are paid very well and have officer privleges?

I know 1st hand that the wages are not that great , and on some ships they do have officer status; which means they get to eat in the officers lounge.

The staff are very appreciative of tips and yes they do rely on them as well.

These are your children that you are entrusting them with. They love what they do, and they make your family trip extra special. Isn't that worth the tip? It has always been for our family. Hope this helps.
