I don't understand. Several folks on these forums have said that the employees must pool their tips, so why would I give extra, if the special employee won't get it? Some have said that some ships will fire them if they get caught not pooling. In the past, the wait staff asked to be remembered by name on the comment card so they could get points. I guess if you get named often enough, you get a reward from the line. I now always comment by name on the card for good service.
