Default Tipping

As first time cruisers for many years, would really appreciate opnions and advice on tipping on Dawn Princess. As a personal opinion, I believe gratuities should only be given for exceptional service and to the individuals concerned.

This line however, seem to prefer a service where tipping is charged to the passenger's account on a daily basis, which begs the question, how, and on what basis are these gratuities distributed?

This system suggests to me, firstly that on-board staff are insufficiently paid, and secondly that tips are distributed equally, regardless of the service provided.

Any advice, comments and opinions will be very welcome.
Thank you.
