We will be sailing in 14 days. 3 of my children will be bringing their children. I know they have the Camp Carnival for children and late night babysitting available for $6.00 per hour. My question is do we tip them? There is nothing listed in our packets about tipping other than wait staff, room stewards and bartenders. If so give me some guidance into what is considered fair.

Tipping the youth staff is totally at your discretion. They are paid a little differently than the wait staff, therefore, do not rely on tips to survive. There are no guidelines, as tipping is neither necessary or expected. In fact, when my daughter was younger and participated in the children's programs the staff often refused tips. I would consider tipping anyone who performed "in-cabin" babysitting services as that is a more personalized service. However, I would think of the staff at the children's facilities more like school teachers and daycare staff. How do you show your appreciation to those people?
