The information Raoul shared is correct. To explain some of the conflicting messages you have read, here is a bit of background. When JR's were first introduced, RC imposed a service fee. Many passengers complained and RC decided to remove the automatic service fee, but charged extra for the milkshakes and malts. Then, in an effort to control dining traffic and eliminate lines (or at least that is the "official reason" from the cruise line) they re-instated the fee on the Mariner and Navigator on a trial basis. In a recent press release they indicated that their trial run accomplished its task and the fee would now be imposed on all of the Voyager Class ships. Hope that helps explain the confusion.
