ok, look at it this way: the cruise lines can do away with tipping by paying the crew better, Right? If that were to happen, the added salary would be passed onto us in the form of higher cruise prices and we would have no control, plus the crew members would pay income tax on their entire salary which would net them less. I prefer to tip, one way or the other, of course auto is easier. NMnita
