Default Re: 10 Dollars a Day Per Person?

I tend to think that the onboard staff preferred the old ways of being handed a tip personaly. When tips are gathered via auto charging on the passengers tab the cruise line is able to tax the amount the individual receives. Now don't bash me for encouraging tax evasion, I just think that when individuals are paid such small wages to begin with they probably appreciate every extra dollar (vs. the 75cents or less they receive post tax) they can get.
