View Full Version : Tipping for Room Service

I'm a first time cruiser, and I believe you do the tipping at the end. But, if you get room service, do you tip the person who delivers it at that time, or is that also included in the "end" tipping? Thanks.

You tip the person who delivers it.

You tip the server at the time he delivers the food to your room.

That's right, for room service you tip when the service is provided.
I have also tried to balance the amount of the tip to the amount of stuff brought to our stateroom. For example if DW and I order a pot of coffee I'd proably tip $1-$2 dollars. At the other end of the spectrum, if I ordered dinner for 4 I might tip $10.

Thanks for the info. That's what I was hoping because I'd be more comfortable tipping then and not having to wait until the end of the cruise.
