Default tiping

My wife and I are traveling with our 2 daughters ages 6 and 4. Do you tip the stateroom attendant, waiter, and assistant waiter the same amount for children as you would for adults? It looks like that would total around $9.00 a day per person.

On RCI, yes. The same gratuity suggestion applies for both adults and children.

Absolutely - tipping is the same for children and adults - actually, they probably get more service than the adults! And don't forget to tip the staff in the children's program as well.

Thanks for the feedback. I just calculated all the tips and sealed them in individual envelopes. I have found in the past that this helps toward the end of the cruise when we inevidably spend more than we anticiapted. At least the people making this vacation memorable will be taken care of. Thanks again for the feedback. Only 3 days left.

Hey bicker, your icon cracked me up. When I first looked at it I thought "What is ET doing on a raft?" After looking at it closer I saw that it wasn't E.T.'s head, but a heart on a sail :-)

I have had great luck in stateroom attendants. So I always tip them extra the last day personally. About 20.00 per person. But I put the regular tipping about 68.75 for 7 day cruise on my ship and sail card. A good attendant can make you feel like royaly.

I prefer to get the vouchers and add the cash accordingly. That way I get the "miles" on my credit card for the base amount and the crew members get both cash and money in their acounts.

The only change I saw in the new brochure was with respect to suite attendants.
