Default room service

Can you order coffee from room service, and is it free? How long does roomservice usualy take to get there? Late at night what kinds of foods are offered through room service?

You can order coffee. Room service has been pretty quick for us - not more than 10 minutes.

There is a menu in the room that you can order from. Hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, etc ....

Kind of hard to read, but this will give you an idea.

Note: The booze is not available any more. You can order individual drinks.

If there is something that you would like, but it is not on the menu, just ask. They will try to accommodate you.

No trouble for us either. It is relatively quick.

Given my wife's great speed at getting ready to leave the cabin I'ld say it's a darn good thing I can get coffee from room service in the morning!!

Besides, it's great to order coffee and then sit out on the balcony and just feel the "essence d'vacation".......um......you get the idea

Later in the evening I like to order a pot of tea and cookies. Usually takes about 15 minutes.

It's free and it doesn't take long, You can order breakfast too if you like

There is a 24 hour menu in the room but if you are hungry enough to order stuff late at night you probably have a hollow leg or something, because you are going to be eating a lot

Thanks for the info. We are booked on Crown for 10-5-08 Please tell me how you liked it. I am worried that its too big. Have been reading negative stuff about lines and the food. We just returned from Celebrity Millennium where I thought there was a decline in qualtiy of food and service from last year.
thanks

Only one thing to add, I am don't know how you can order breakfast? WE asked and the answer was NO, only continental. WE did get coffee and juice every morning, we would just put the door hanger out and viola every morning it arrived on time. Some mornings a little too early.

We never ordered anything later in the day as we found plenty of stuff to eat aroung the ship and spend very little time in our cabin. We did think the menu was pretty limited.

Nita

ps: don't forget to tip a couple of bucks

Default door hanger

There's a door hanger asking for coffee? And how early does the coffee come?

I don't recall what the hours are for the breakfast door hanger. If the time is not early enough for you, just order it through room service. They are 24/7.
