I sure don't want to offend anyone..But, to the original question..

blackvinyl had the correct answer, and we should give credit where credit is due.

Carnival does not auto-gratuity for under 2.

It seems that I was a bit confused .I did mean auto tipping ( on your sail and sign) I have no problem tipping and do tip well for great service.I would never pre pay .I do wonder if the tips get to those that they are intended.So my understanding is that for 2 adults and 1 child over 2 it will be $30 a day.

Punished? Don't be rash Kevin, it was just a mild irritation. We have a way of getting along together here you'll end up making good friends. You might have to put up with a few wayward threads but as one poster put it, we're not talking the war in Iraq here. Fun loving cruise junkies is how I see it.

I always pre-paid tipping is better to know that you already paid for your trip and forget about charges, only the future ones you want to make using your fun pass. I have always do that in Royal and also in carnival.
I remember talking to one of the waiters at Royal Caribbean and she told me they most relay on tips for their pay checks and not a salary.
I don’t know if that’s true so if anyone knows please let me know….
I never tip the maitre in my cruises so I see he does not do any work, but I always give some extra $$$ for my waiters in CASH if their work is a good one, even with the already pre paid tipping, For me is good to let them that extra $$$ if for their great service… because that’s always the case in my experience.

Hi Ken,
My comment was just a little joke for Dwayne because I gout if it really matters to anyone else. This message board thing has become quite addictive and I enjoy everyone here.

I know, I'm still learning. I was just following Ken's lead.

Even CCL is confused on this one. I called General Res to confirm and the young lady I spoke to said there is no policy regarding age exceptions, even children under 2.

Dwayne, I have come to trust your information so having gotten wrong info before I called back and asked to speak to a Supervisor. They directed me to the website link provided by blackvinyl which is their tipping guidelines. Nowhere in that guideline is there an age exception. Being persistent to get the right info I again asked the Mgr to verify the policy. He went to the electronic Res Agent manuel and read me from the screen that children under 2 are in fact NOT auto charged.

I've requested that information be updated on their site so that what the public sees matches their policy and there is no confusion.

Dwayne, you won't ever offend me by correcting something that's inacurate. I appreciate it. For a very long time I've been giving clients incorrect info based on the written policy the provide. Their internal policies are apparently different from what they post and provide to the public and agents.

Thanks again for the correction!

Cheers, Neil
