Default Tip for room service?

I just read a review that said the $10 per day per person Princess charges covers: Stateroom attendants, dining personell and room service. Is this correct? I plan on ordering from time to time from room service.

I have always tipped the person that delivered my room service unless that person happened to be my room steward. In that case I have taken that into account at the end of the week and increased their tip accordingly.

Hope you have a great cruise. What ship are you going on?

Hi Mike,
I too always tip the person who brings the room service a few dollars depending on how much he has to bring up, that is totally seperate from the other staff you are supposed to tip at the end of the cruise either with the automatic tipping or with cash using the envelopes they give you.

I tip the room service server a dollar or two (usually two) at the time of service even if it is my regular steward.
