Default Alternative to cash tips?

Quick question.....

We are sailing with Princess to Alaska for a first-time cruise/tour in Sept. 2005. We have no problem in paying the pre-set tip amounts. However, if we decide to give more for extra-special service, would it be acceptable to give out pre-paid phone cards instead of cash?

My understanding is that the extra tips may have to be pooled or reported. I know that the ship to shore calls can get very expensive, and the staff does not receive a large salary (sans tipping).

Does anyone think this would be a good idea or not? I surely do not want to offend anyone by doing so if cash is needed more.
