View Full Version : Ugh - I wished the search worked: Tip Question

Can someone tell me the same of the website that calculates the tips for the servers?

Also, how much do you usually tip the person who delivers the room service food?

Do you tip the person who picks up your clothes for pressing? Do you give a tip for the person who irons them (how would you even do that??).

I know generally one tips the servers, et al; the spa people, bartenders, camp counselors, room steward. Anyone else?

We are on the 7 day Thanksgiving cruise and want to start my envelopes now.

Here you go.


Room service is usually tipped $1 or $2, depending on how much you ordered. Counselors are not tipped positions. Don't know about laundry service, etc.

We usually tip RS $2. or $3. depending on the size of the order. If DD just orders Mickey Bars she will tip $1.

DCL recommends $12/person per day for the 4 main tipped positions: room steward, server, asst. server and head server.

Spa tip is based on percentage of services rendered.

Bar services will already have 15% added to the bill.

Kid's couselors and not supposed to accept monetary tips. Most give a group gift of candy or such or you can chose to give a particular counselor a gift card if it has their name on it.
