Our travel agent told us there is no need to tip for room service. We are going on the Sun to Mexican Riviera on Jan 5. I keep reading on this message board that we should tip them. My hubby thinks because the travel agent says so, that it means its true. I am not so sure. Feedback please. :-)
While on the Star Princess in September I did tip the room service people. The reason
was they had to come a long way to get to my cabin and they were so appreciative of
the tip. Remember these personnel work 7 days a week for 6 to 9 months. They
need a boost once in a while. So I think tipping would make one feel good.
even though gratuities are included in your bill, i think you should still tip your cabin steward. I am a believer in pre-tipping, give him/her a couple of bucks the first day of the cruise and you would be amazed at the level of service you get, you are giving them an incentive -imho
We always keep some singles in a drawer handy for room service tipping.
We have never had to wait very long for room service. The servers always seem happy to get a tip. And I appreciate their service.
