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. :confused: 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.

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.
