How much money do waiters make?

Jump to last reply

In another posting someone mentioned that a good waiter on a cruise ship can earn $1000 per week. Is that accurate? It seems amazing to me. I have no idea how many people each waiter is in charge of, but assuming that the waiter is in charge of 10 people, who each pay $50 in tips to him, that is only $500 per week for a 7 day cruise.

It would seem to me that it is impossible to reach that $1000 per week amount unless, the waiter had many more people for which he was in charge, and/or everyone tipped him more than $50 per week.

I know that some people do not tip the suggested amount, and I gather that many people tip LESS than the suggested amount (or even do not tip at all), so that would outweigh the few people that tip more than the suggested amount.

Can anyone with experience shed some light on this.
