I know they stock the "frig" and charge you for what you eat/drink. However, can you ask them to empty the frig so I can just put things in there that we may buy or bring that we prefer to keep refrigerated (i.e. nutrigrain bars, chocolate etc.)? Also, if you don't finish a meal do they have containers so you can take it back to you room, refrigerate it, and can you then ask room service to come get it from your room and nuke it for you later on when you're craving it?
They will empty the fridg. for you. Yes you can put your own stuff in it. Ours on the Glory was not very cold, and there was no way to adjust the temp. I don't know about the room service thing.

I have never thought about the room service re heating your food. For one thing the meals in the dinning room are small portions. It's not like you would find in low scale restaurants. I don't think you would have left overs, unless it was dessert, and that is usually room temp.
Luanne and Gary are absolutely correct. They will indeed empty the fridge for you, and yes, it isn't very cold. I can't imagine why you'd want to eat leftovers anyway, when there is so much great FRESH food available, either in the dining room, at the buffet, or with room service. Give the leftovers a rest (that's what you do at home!) and enjoy all the great, fresh food available, anytime you want it!
Concerning the leftovers, Our last cruise in March. we were not even allowed to take an extra dessert from the dining room, I have never seen any take out boxes, I do not believe they even have them for the pizza.
I guess I don't REALLY expect to want to bring leftovers (if any) back to the room, but I do want to make sure I can keep my own snacks in the frig rather than what they put in there. Thanks everyone for your input!
well, not much, again as we're bringing only carryons (to eliminage the hassles with airplane checked luggage) but my son and I love Nutrigrain bars and we both prefer them refrigerated. We like to have that to snack on.
non-refrigerated snacks will include a bag of thin low-fat pretzel sticks for me and cheddar chex-mix for Ian.
The reason I asked was when I took my first cruise, I thought we would starve until morning. You can not picture the amount of food on a cruise ship. Need chocolate in the middle of the night? Pick up the phone and they will deliver it. It goes on and on.
I think only the suites / balcony cabins have fridgs don't they ? May be wrong.
Don't mean anything bad, but that's the first time I've ever heard of leftovers on a cruise. As Luanne said, there's just no need for leftovers. Besides, the food is usually so good, you won't have anything left over.

What kind of snacks are stocked in the mini fridge? Never had a cabin w/ one..but i heard that all liberty cabins have em..so i am just wondering what is in there and if we should even bother to have them unlock it or empty it for our use..
8) we often get hungry in the middle of the night and don't always want pizza, salad, or calzone...usually have something in the cabin to snack on...chips, pretzels, breakfast bar, etc. something light, not something from room service
I am so stuffed from eating after dinner that I can't even think of future food at least until the next meal. But if a dessert sounds so good and you can't eat it right then ask if you can take it with you.
From what I have gleaned from some questions about refrigerators, not necessarily on this thread, and from other sources is that they are not set for keeping food. They keep soft drinks, water, etc. cooler so that when you add ice it doesn't melt quickly. I'm sure there is no problem with keeping nutribars or candy bars cool but not food. I can't imagine that a cruise line would ever consider that people would want to take leftovers back to their room unless it was to take a meal back and eat it , not stash it in the fridge. There is just too much good food being served most of the time to do that. Go get more later. And besides the refrigerators are awfully small for trying to put bulky food containers in it even if they were cold enough.
My husband misses the soft ice cream station so much. We were one deck below the station and it took him less than a minute to run up grab a cone and come back down. I'm glad it's not that convenient all of the time. I sure miss not having to think about what to fix at meal times. No grocery shopping, no fixing, no clean-up. I could live like that.
