Default tips for room service

Can anyone tell me what the standard tip is for room service on a junior suite? Is this normally included in the daily tipping rate? Thanks!

No, the tips for room service are not included as part of your tip "package". A reasonable tip would be a couple of dollars, maybe three if you feel generous. It doesn't make any difference if you are in a junior suite or ordinary cabin - the effort to deliver the room service is the same.

I have heard that $2 is the average tipping amount for room service regardless of what type of room you have.

We give a $1 for beverages and $2 if we get food. Might seem low to some but remember the recommended for the waiter is $3.50 p.p per day.

I agree with Robbie's opinion. We usually tip $2.

How does room service work.... can you order anything you want , whenever you want off a menu for free?? (You just have to tip.)

Yes there is a menu in your room and it is free plus a tip. We usually do $1/person. We also had a printed breakfast form with items to choose from and a time for delivery in the morning. Just hang it on your door before going to bed.

When I was on the Serenade of the Seas and had the information channel on, they showed room service being delivered and the waiter was tipped $2. Since RCL paid for this to be made, I assumed it was a subtle hint that $2 was an appropriate tip.
