So we are talking corporation policy? All these cruise names?
'Carnival Corporation & plc is a global cruise company and one of the largest vacation companies in the world. Our portfolio of leading cruise brands includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises and Seabourn Cruise Line in North America; P&O Cruises, Cunard Line and Ocean Village in the United Kingdom; AIDA in Germany; Costa Cruises in southern Europe; Iberocruceros in Spain; and P&O Cruises in Australia.'

NCL did a report, a number of years back that the vast majority of people who remove their tips from the automatic tipping program in order to personally give their gratuity "NEVER" do. It is the same on other cruise lines. It is just an excuse for people to be cheap.

Take care,
