I like the auto gratuities ..we still get hugs from the crew at the end & tell them how much we enjoyed the service
we make a note in the final comment cards for those that have made our cruise special ..this goes a long way for them for promotions etc..

It is personal what you want to tip
we put cash in an envelope with a note of appreciation with our names & cabin number since we leave the auto tip in place they get to keep the extra

If you remove the auto tip most cruise lines will make the crew turn in any $$ they receive from the passengers to share with others in the tip pool
YMMV
