    How much to tip for room service ?

    What is considered a fair tip for room service on a cruise when the service in included in the fare ? I'm planning on having coffee and fruit ordered each morning to enjoy on the balcony watching the sunrise. Ahh looking forward to this. Any tips would be appreciated. cruzinlinda

    As you know it is completely up to you on what you tip. That being said people usually still tip "included" room service based on the amount of food/drink ordered and it's value. In your case I would believe $2 every morning would be fine for a cup of coffee and fruit plate.

    We order room service coffee each morning onboard and tip $2.
    Treat others as you wish to be treated! We're all human and all in this life together!

    We have always tipped $1 per person so $2 for me and hubby.

    I found a great list of suggested tips on line. Who to tip and who not to tip and what amounts. Glad I read it because I over tip all the time. Still think it is low, but as an example, my $5 tip per bag is now going to be $3 not the suggested $2.
    I also give the cabin tip at the beginning, including hotels, so I get great service. $5 per day.
    Love breakfast in bed so 20% of what cost would probably be. And did the pre-sailing tip package.
