I know this is a hot topic withall the cruise lines leaning in this direction. My whole point is if you are not going to tip you can still do that. Simply remove the tips and don't hand one over. The bigger problem I have is the amount of time the cruise line takes to get the money to the employees. What are they doing with it for 2-3 weeks. Alot of ships times alot of passengers adds up to extra revenue for them in handling the cash.
