Is continental breakfast room service complimentary on Symphony of the Seas


Recommended Posts

Continental breakfast tip.   Get double everything and put it in the cooler/frig for the next day on the first night then you always have it if ya want something.  
as the drinks can get warm.  That is if your getting juice or milks.   
my morning cabin breakfast was. 2 OJ’s 2 milks and cereals. And 2 fruit plates.  
also bring ziplocks if you wanna bring some fruit with you on an excursion.    

 

side note. I travel solo so that’s why double.   If your a couple get 4 lol

Some ports will not let you take food off that's not sealed in original packaging. 

Exactly. Please don’t do that. Also, some coolers (they’re not really refrigerators) will not safely keep milk fresh overnight.

I read on cruise critic that room service for continental breakfast is not complimentary.  I understood that it was - which is correct?

Where did you read that? The thing I like about cruise critic as compared to Facebook is the correct answers substantially outnumber the incorrect answers and when someone does post something incorrect, it is normally corrected by multiple posters.

Had no problem taking fruit off in St Maarten. But reading it’s a No No.didnt realize that. oops.  And the cooler/refrig was very cold.  As you can see in my picture by the look of my fruit.  And my OJ was ice cold every morning.  
I’m pretty sure the OJ is concentrate but it’s still good.  A lot better than I’ve had at some free breakfast at hotels.  Like Best western.

Just because you were able to get it off the ship doesn't mean it wasn't against the islands agricultural laws.  Many of the islands are very strict and ask as you are getting off the ship.  Bermuda had a huge table of bags like yours, taken from those who didn't follow the rules stated in the cruise compass.  Cozumel is also very strict and has agriculture dogs as you exit the ship.

 

Don't introduce foreign pests to the islands.  Look what happened in California with the med fly.

Thank you in advance!

Continental definitely free.

Cooked is usually $7.95 but on Independence out of Southampton it was $9.40.

All services out of British and Aussie ports are required to include the gratuity in the listed price. 

It is for Australia but not from England.

We always pre-pay our gratuities and until a couple of years ago we had to pre-pay as a condition of getting MTD and I have heard this has been reindroduced.

When they offer free drinks or gratuities promotions on 5 nights and longer cruises the price of the cruise does go up accordingly.

Hot room service on Explorer out of Southampton in October was $7.95.

My apologies then. Maybe I am getting the included tips mixed up with the smoking rules?

Thanks for replying.

Smoking is illegal in inside public places in the UK and on ships sailing from the UK smoking in the casino and all indoor bars is prohibited.

Lots of Brit's are negative on tipping and myself and other posters on here have reported big queues at RC GS of people stopping autogratuities.

Several cruiselines P&O, Marella,NCL to name a few have included gratuities permanently for UK departures.
