All passengers are charged gratuity. Even babies require attention from the crew.

Also, the bar staff is not in the tipping pool. They are tipped from drink orders. So if you do get your baby a cocktail, then you will still be charged the 15-18% gratuity added on to the drink, in addition to the daily gratuity.

Good point, often overlooked.

Yeah! Everyone is charged a gratuity.
