Sorry another question came to mind. I heard different policies on the tipping for a 2 year old. Do you tip on behalf of the 2 year old as you would for an adult (customary 10. a day) what can I plan on for tips for 2 adults, 1 toddler on an 8 day cruise?? Thanks again..

For a 2-year old I'd still tip. The staff is still serving them, sometimes catering to them if they are being fussy.

I'd tip also. Actually, when our son was younger, we tipped above the suggested rate as our waiter cut his food every evening, and the cabin steward had to discard diapers (even though we wrapped them up well in deodorized bags). JMHO.

I am planning on traveling with a 2 year old. A majority of my tip will go to the Camp Carnival Cruise staff. I plan to tip early on and often.
Also, I have heard that the dinner staff is wonderful to catering to the young children. JMHO.

I too would tip. but I would give it to them, not have it put on my sign and sail card. Plus give them a little extra as usual.

I would tip them in cash the first night. Then leave the rest on the sign and sail. If you recieve excellant service give them a cash tip the last night.
