Can I see a show of hands for anyone that has ordered room service after midnight and before 5am?

jc<---- hand is not raised

jc<---- imagines 95% of the food ordered at this time occurs on spring break or summer cruises....

I guess with the fuel supplement gone, revenue generation is getting desperate....

I think they should charge all day for room service. Maybe it will cut down on traffic and the room service people will not be so overwhelmed (as they always seem to be).

$3.95 with gratuity included is nothing.

Hope its true.
Just with the 15% for bartenders that too is a reaction to the tip-less cruising community which has been generated over the last few years.

As we can't shoot the messenger we can't shoot RCI. Each of us has to look at how do we cruise and extrapolate this behavior on a grander scale.

This will not cause me any undo financial hardship if I ever feel like late room service.

You'd be surprised how many people are up that early in the morning - either getting up or going to bed.

Guess it's a quick stop at Sorrento's before we head to the cabin now. Hopefully we'll get breakfast at 6am without a surcharge.

Perhaps it's an effort to stop room service during those hours.

It does seem like a shame....what next??

It is most certainly true ...it came from RCCL.

I am not in the habit of posting false info, I check and recheck with RCCL before I post news like this.

You are not striking me as a person just throwing out rumors or made up stuff.
