No Dorothy it is not raelly my choice, by pooling tips Edwardo the crappy waiter gets the same amount as Manuel the excellant waiter, unless of course I first tip the full amount, then I can give EXTRA to the excellant waiter. BUT< why should I have to make sure the crappy staff gets his "cut"! If I take the auto tipping off I am well aware that the staff still have to come up with their share of the pooled tips, and so I can't just remove the auto tips and give my tips to who iI please.
By the way Dorothy, I tip the full amount each time I cruise, I just do not agree with it. What would possess you to assume I would ever desire to " tip nothing"!
