RC tips at specialty restaraunts?
 
We just got back from a cruise on the RC Radiance of the Seas. We ate 4 nights at a the specialty restraurants -- where there is a $20pp fee which is stated "includes tips". Therefore, we only ate at the regular dining room 3x. How should we have tipped? We tipped the recommended rate for 3 nights -- not for the whole cruse, since we only ate there 3 nights. Was this appropriate?

Also -- we didn't eat in the dining room for breakfast or lunch...

I recently returned from a Disney cruise, and we were told the surcharge at the private dining room was for the tip. After dinner the server told us several times the tip was not included, so of course we tipped an additional 15%.

Happy Sailing!

Hi Megan,
We tip for the entire week, even if we don't eat in the dining room every evening, I think thats what you are supposed to do.
