    No but I found a few................

    Tipping Policies on Some of the Major Cruise Lines
    Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me! I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

    It should be also noted that children, even infants also have suggested tips in the amount of suggested tips for adults.

    If they're my kids, the percentage should be doubled for the poor soul cleaning up after them.

    Thanks so much for this great and growing list of suggested tipping guidelines!

    LOL A few years ago we took 4 grandchildren with us on an RC cruise. the 2 little ones were 2 & 5. Oldest, 8 & 11.The dining staff was incredible with them especially the youngest. She loved tomatoes and apple juice and every night at dinner she sat at the table with a bowl of fancy cut tomatoes and the juice already there. She was so happy. They were so attentive to all the kids that it made it much easier for us. The tips are worth every penny. They work very hard to earn it

    For MSC Cruises, it's $12 per day per adult, $6 per day per child. Infants under 2 years old do not pay the tips.

    You're welcomed, Sue.

    Yes they do. I had 4 families, 3 with kids on the MSC Poesia Thanksgiving cruise last month, 8 kids paid only the taxes. They also have last minute fares now which are their lowest fares and that's a real bargain.
