thejuliet Posted April 25, 2012 #26 Share Posted April 25, 2012 People with kids require way more service than childless couples. In restaurants it means extra runs for refills on juice, more mess to clean up and under the tables, the chairs need to be wiped off. Trips to the back to bring crackers for little ones until the meal comes, another for crayons and paper etc... A trip to the kitchen to ask the chef if its OK to modify a meal off the menu so that nothing "green" is on the plate or if he'll cook a plain buttered pasta.(then I have to listen to the chef rant about the parents indulging their fussy kids and when he has kids they will eat what their given!) Parents usually drink less alcohol when with their kids so the check is less so the tip is smaller for way more work. That is my own experiences as a dining room server. As a parent on NCL with my 8 year old last year, wow he loved it, all the staff he can into contact with remembered his name, had him up on stage to do the happy dance when we won at bingo. It was service with a smile all round! Happy satisfied kids on a cruise makes happy mom thats for sure. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
