Default Are Tips Pooled

Is it true that on RCI that all the tips are pooled and spilt equally between all service staff no matter how superior or inferior the service was?

NO.....tips are NOT pooled on RCI! I'm not sure where people get that misinformation from.

No, it's not true. Tips are not pooled. Each individual keeps his/her own tips

This rumor just won't die but no harm in asking. There may be other lines that do it but "RCI" has assured me that it is not so.

On my last RCI cruise, the waiter in the Windjammer inferred that the tips were shared. It was my understanding that the waiters rotated turns in the Windjammer. Those in the dinner room shared with those in the windjammer. Maybe 2 waiters were assigned to a section and each week they shared.

Just my thoughts.

The waiters in the dining room at dinner pull extra duty in the Windjammer and other venues during the day. The tips they receive from the dining room are essentially "spread out" over all their duties. Is that what you are asking?

I'm not sure, but the crew who works in the Windjammer during the evening meal, might pool the tips received there. But other dining room staff doesn't pool them.
