There is a lot more to room service than the crew member who walks through the door. Charge your tips!
So I am supposed to charge my tips because the runner is being less than honest and not sharing tips like they are supposed to?

I ordered room service every day on the fantasy. The only time i signed was when i needed to tip on the card and when i ordered chocolate covered strawberries. I read an excellent idea on the boards about bringing singles in an envelope - i kept the envelope in my drawer and it was easy. I didnt even know you could sign tips until i ran out of singles and asked on the phone.

Princess Trisha;
Wasn't necessarily trying to imply dishonesty on the part of the delivery person. I have no idea if there is a rule, written or unwritten, regarding cash tips. I only know that the tips are split if they are charged, which to me makes sense as there are several folks involved in the processing of the order. Simply a suggestion, as I had not realized it. Hope that helps.
