Default UK..

Contrary to rumour we in the UK do tip, just not so much that's all & staff don't "expect" it as a right. To tip 10/15% would be grossly abnormal in a restaurant & people who don't travel much tend not to tip at all. I am waiting to see what sort of outrage is expressed with Celebrity Eclipse sailing out of Southampton this year. Non cruisers are actually horrified at the amounts expected & having virtually compulsory tips debited from your account or paid up front is absolutely beyond their belief!!
