You can have them removed whether you eat in the dinning room or not. I will tip but get very outraged, whether in a restaurant or on a cruise, when I am made to tip before I get any damn service. How arogant! That's like a kick in the face to me. They (restaurants, cruises, etc.) simply want us, customers, to pay their employees salary. What a scam, I wish this was, all of a sudden, add to every business. The results would be interesting.
OK, I feel better now
