Default Tipping porters - room service??

I went to the bank this morning and got my travelers checks and $25 in $1.

Can someone remind me how much you tip porters? Is it per bag or a flat rate?

Also, how much do you tip for room service if I order say a couple of sandwiches to take on shore with me the following day in a soft sided cooler. I have never taken advantage of room service before and want to try it this time around.

Bermuda.... Crown Dynasty 6/2000
Cozumel.... Carnival Fascination 2/2002
Bermuda....Celebrity Horizon 5/2004
Looking forward to my next cruise.... 6/2005

Adjust those figures up if the bags are especially heavy (over 50 lbs) or they bring you a lot of food
