No , it's not included in the tip pool. It's the stewards to keep.



And what would be your source of information that the room service stewards are not included in the tip pool?

Default Tipping

I always tip room service plus on first meeting our cabin steward I give him/her $20.00 and tell him what I expect during the week (said in a nice way) and have never been disappointed.
