If the rumored policy of requiring any cash tips up to the minimum to be turned over is true, I would posit that the cruise line is hurting both the passengers and the crew. Passengers are less likely to leave even the minimum tip on autotip if they do not trust it will get to the people it is for because they think the cruise line will pad it's own pockets. When you leave a tip in a restaurant using a debit or credit card, if the manager even distributes the tips at all, they are divided equally instead of proportionate to actual customers and service.
