Default Tipping on Rccl?

What is the recomended amount? I know I can tip more or less depending on the service. But what does Rccl suggest?

Hi SS,
Royal Caribbean suggests:

$3.50 per day, per person for Cabin attandant
$3.50 per day, per person for dining room waiter
$2.00 per day, per person for asst. waiter

They also suggest somthing for the Matre'D, but thats up to you, if he does something for you other than just a greeting when you walk in, we usually tip $10 to $20 depending.

It should average out to around $10 per day, per person.

to my understanding tipping for room service is cash. I thought this was to be taken care of during the end of the cruise, please clearify

Hi JJ,
The tipping at the end of the cruise does not include tipping for room service, you tip as you receive the service, just a few dollars depending on how large your order is.
