Default Surcharge at Portofino & Chops

Does anyone know what the surcharge is at both of these restaurants. And also do they charge for Jonny Rockets on the Voyager ships?

Thank You

On the Adventure there was a $20 surcharge for Portofinos...and, in my opinion, worth every penny of it...it was wonderful! Johnny Rockets only charged for the shakes and sodas. However, according to many posts on these boards, some of the other voyager class ships charge for Johnny Rockets.

The Voyager charged $20.00 for Portofinos and Johnny Rockets charged for shakes. Our sodas in Johnny Rockets were free because of our soda cards.

Thank you! I am thinking of doing one of the Voyager ships in January. I have never been on them but they sound great.

Is there an extra gratuity in addition to the surcharges?

No hcat, The surcharge is for service/gratuity even if many passengers do add tips to their bills.

make reservations soon after you board the ship. if you think you might want to book more than one night, do it at the same time. you can always cancel later.
