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.
Thank you for your help, Nevl
