Default Currency for tipping in Europe

First time cruiser starting in a week. I've had most of my tipping handled by having it automatically added to my cruise fee. But from reading these posts, it's clear I'll need ready cash for any room service and maybe a few other things (special requests, etc.)

1. Given that my cruise is out of Barcelona and 12 nights across the Mediterranean, should I tip in Euros or Dollars or whatever I want?

2. Are the tips for alcohol drinks autocharged to my paycard or whatever it's called? or do I need to keep money on hand to tip the bartender/waitress?

Trying to get a feel for how much small bill cash to keep on hand. I'm not cheap and don't want to be viewed as such simply because I didn't have a few $$ or Euros to lay on the table at that point in time.
