Definitely plates.   Also remember, the fridge in your room isnt a refrigerator.  Its a "cooler"  

Also remember you're not going to be going hungry on your cruise, but sometimes you'll want to have a small nosh in your room.  That's where the plates come in.

Dont forget that room service is also an option.  Yes there's a fee, but room service is 24/7, breakfast is free (no delivery fee) but if you really want that 2am nosh, room service can really come in handy.  

 

I like bringing a few pastries from the Windjammer or some bacon, or maybe an omelette back to my cabin to enjoy some coffee watching the sunrise over the ocean.  The pastries come in handy for interim noshing and they dont take up too much space.  

 

Just dont be like some cruisers I've seen before who are food hoarders in their room, taking piles of plates back to their rooms, and storing far more food than they'd ever be able to eat in their room, while at the same time going out to enjoy all of the wonderful restaurant experiences onboard.  

 

I'm a fan of small nosh is OK to bring back safely from the Windjammer.  Bringing back enough food for 5 people to eat all day off of probably isnt the best idea.

I am not offended. We all have our likes.

I have noticed on my last cruise the stateroom attendant typically would  take any food left on the counters and sometimes in the mini fridge.  I had gone up to chocolate night at the windjammer, left some chocolate desserts on the counter in the room, went to dinner, came back later that night for my chocolate desserts and they were all gone.  Not sure if it has something to do with keeping the food safe or maybe this was a very efficient stateroom attendant but keep that in mind and maybe write a note saying PLEASE DO NOT TAKE.

I often see people having their MDR waiter fix "to-go" plates for guests who didn't show up for dinner or they want to take their dessert to enjoy later.  The waiter will give you a plate with one of those room service covers on it.   I have often seen people carry plates out of the Windjammer using a napkin or another plate as a cover (often for a sick spouse or just being nice and bringing something back for a spouse to have breakfast in bed).

Do us wheelchair users a favour and don’t leave your trays in the hallway it’s a bloody nuisance. 🙄 

I've seen a lot of folks have issues on the last night of the cruise too..... due to people placing their luggage out early in the evening (too early in my opinion)

No need to disrespect people who live in trailer parks.

You could have just given your suggestion about plates.

@MotleyCruiser  This time I am going to go to WJ before dinner and get a plate of Asian food, than place it in my mini-cooler.  One of the things I can't wait to do is eat semi-cold Asian food on my balcony after a late night of shows and dancing to absorb any residual alcohol in my system.  My husband will be the one eating cookies and cake at that hour.   I am also not picky, if they have fried chicken in the WJ, that works at midnight too when it is cold.

No the WJ is not open 24 hrs.  Typically it closes @ 9 pm.  That is why posters are talking about taking plates back to their room for a midnight nosh instead of ordering room service.  After that bewitching hour you can go to certain spots on your ship that offer limited late night snacks, such as, pre-made sandwiches, select desserts and pizza.

Room service is 24/7,  You pay 7.95 + grats for as much food you want to order.

We take a balcony so you will see me 2x a day bringing plates   My husband and I will walk the track or go to the gym very early a.m..  We order the free continental breakfast to be delivered to our cabin at a set time.  As we go back to the cabin, we stop in the WJ for fresh made omelets and some hash browns.  Plate #1 for the day. 

We do late seating for dinner.  We go to the WJ @ 5 and have early cocktail hr.  WJ is serving dinner at this time.  We make plate #2 and 3 to take back to the room.  #2 is filled with nosh food for my hubby.  #3 is mine.  As stated we place it in the mini-fridges aka cooler.

If hubby is hungry we will hit whatever place is open for pizza, and as I said before just unwind on the balcony eating food and guzzling down water to rehydrate.  We do leave the plates out in the hall before we go to sleep.

I'll ask this question here since room service was mentioned.  Someone mentioned (maybe on another thread) how they have a pot of coffee delivered through room-service each morning...can I order specialty coffees through room service in the mornings?  or does DH still have to run to get them for me? 😄

Still gotta run to get Specialty coffees.  No drinks delivered via room service are covered in any drink package.

Typical room service menu:

Coffee options are caffeinated or decaffeinated.  

Mimosa and Bloody Mary's are available at a cost even if you have a drink package or drink card.

Beyond that, the SO is heading to the coffee shop on board.
