Default Tipping for kids program?

Do people usually tip the staff in the kids program? If so, how much? There are so many counselors, who gets the tip?

Yes, we tip the counselors, its at your discretion. We tipped the counselors for the age group our kids were in, i think there were 4 of them and we tipped about $35 each. Carnival makes it easy, they give you an envelope for them and I assume the counselors split it between them for the age group. Our kids (boys aged 5 and 4) love the program, we can hardly get them out of there. They went every morning and every evening and we forced them to spend the afternoon with us. The counselors do such a great job and we really appreciate it.

Yeah, we tipped each of the counsellors for my 14 & 16 year-old's program. Because of the counselors, we did not have sullen, "bored", broody teenagers on our hands. My boys had a fantastic time in both Fuel and The Living Room, and begged to go again next year. Go figure!

We tip also. We tip the person in charge of Adventure Ocean and then leave a tip to be split between counselors on RCL. If you had to pay a babysitter think what it would cost. The peace of mind and enjoyment is wonderful and you are right, no sullen, nasty kids either
