Default Room Service Tipping ??

I know this is the wrong board, and I know tipping is a touchy subject, but...
After many cruises, on many ships, on four different cruise lines,
I have never used room service. I don't know why, just never did.
The big question is...........How much do you tip the room service person ?
Does it matter how far from the kithcen your cabin is, or how much food ??
Do you tip the same for a pot of coffee as you would for a full breakfast ??

For coffee, I would tip max 2.00

For room service figure about 2.00 per person's order.

You must have the bownie cookie platter. It is soooo yummy!

A silly question for 1st time cruiser. Are room service meals charged to your sign and sail or are they free, just the tip?

Room serve food is free. The tip needs to be done in cash. We take a bunch of ones with us.
