The Automatic Tip Charge applies to all who sail on the Grand no matter what your evening dining choice may be. It actually works out pretty well and when you think that you may dine in the buffet restaurant, at the grills, at Painted Desert, etc. it really is not much more and is pretty fair. You can go to the pursor's desk to make changes, delete the charge, and you can go to a lounge/bar and charge your gratuity for your steward, too. They will give you a receipt to give the steward.
