Default Re: Carnival's *pre-paid* gratuities

I remember reading a survey somewhere that 95% of the pasengers never change the auto tip. Of the 5% who do ask that the amount be changed or removed, they said it was either that the service was not acceptable., they'd prefer to tip the crew members in cash or they didn't want to tip or tip that much.

But what surprised me (or didn't surprise me) was that a good majority of the people that were concerned about removing tips or said they wished to remove the tips and pay is cash actually did not tip AT ALL.
