I don't think of a tip as a "promise". How can you promise something that should be based on level of service before you receive the service? I think that whatever works for each person is okay. I think we all agree that it is important to reward good service with the appropriate tip regardless if you pre-pay, pay as you go each day on ship bill or pay cash at end of cruise.
My wife is a Brit, so I know exactly what you mean
