It's been asked.

It was asked a few times about leaving your room service trays in your cabin or hallway.  I before said I would make a mental note to ask.  When I met Jay my steward he asked me if I wanted one or two services.  I said two. Then I asked him.  What do you prefer about the room service trays.  He said he would very much appreciate leaving them in the passageway.  That way when he is making rounds and sees them they can be removed and that he is only in the cabin in off times.  Also, as of now you get your sail and sign card at the checkin area not in your cabin mailbox.  As of now it's in a test for a few ships to see if it's convenient.

I told ya.......

 

 

Yep... I wasn't sure so I asked.  Now I don't feel like a slob putting the dishes in the passage way.  

Last cruise we left our morning coffee tray in the hallway but it wasn't always collected until later in the day. There were often several trays with lots of leftover food and drinks in the hallways for hours. It looked gross, but they were in full view of the crew who were eventually going to collect them.

This practice is so entrenched in the hotel industry, that it seems naturally to overflow into the cruise industry as well.  I am guilty of discretely placing items in the hall.  They always disappear at some point of the day.  

The only thing that bothers me is that sometimes, SOMEBODY puts a Chiquita banana peel on my tray. I keep telling all my fellow cruisers walking by that it is NOT MINE!!!

They still give me THAT look.

On my last cruise, our neighbors would put their breakfast dishes in the hallway every morning -- right in front of our doorAngry

[/quote. Not sure but.... It might have been me.   I like a tidy surroundings... 

I understand that BAK1061 does that as well.

Putting trays in hallways makes your deck look like a garbage dump.  We leave ours in the room and the room steward picks them up when he does our room.  

 

 

Not me.
