Default dinner service

just got back from cruise on the glory and had to put in a complaint about dinning room service. It seems to me that since they started the auto tips on your account the service is not as good. thanks

I haven't experienced that. I have always had awesome service with auto tips. I have had some of the best waiters since they did the auto tip program. Also it is just like regular tipping because you can always take the auto tipping off.

never had a problem on a Carnival ship. i've had waiters/team waiters that i've liked better than others, but nearly all were exceptional. and i always do the auto tipping, makes it easier on me. i tip extra at the end of the cruise to those i think deserve it.

I do the same thing. If I really think someone deserves more of a tip, I will give them more. And usually they deserve a bigger tip because they have went out of their way for you.

Yeah, I think it's just a coincidence. I've have seen good and poor service before and after the start of auto-tipping.
