Default Paying gratuities before hand

Hi all, I just discovered this message board this morning. It is a great board because the posts are so recent!

I am taking my boyfriend on the Fascination next month for his birthday so expect to see a few more questions from me!

The question I have today is about the option to pay your TA the $30 US per person gratuities when you book your ticket. I haven't seen anyone mention the pros or cons of this anywhere. If I choose this option, will I still have to put more in that envelope that you take to dinner on the last night that I have heard about. Will the various cruise staff still expect tips? Will they even know that I have already paid or will they assume I am not tipping them anything? I realize that tips for alcoholic / paid beverages and other paid service are tipped seperately but I am talking about tipping for the all-inclusive portion.

Please help.
