Default Automatic tipping?

I just booked a cruise for our family on the Star Princess next March, and having looked at so many cruise lines, I'm having trouble keeping all the facts about each line straight! Is Princess one that automatically adds tips onto your shipboard account? If so, how much do they add, and can this be adjusted?

Yes, $6.50 PP daily to tip the wait staff whether you choose tradional or PC dining. This tip DOES NOT include the Steward, him you do on your own (we do $50 for a great one).

we just got off the dawn and if you want to give the tip yourself you can just tell them. also we give our steward $60 he gave us great service. Having them take the tip out for everyone else worked out fine for us. If you want them to put the steward tip on your charge card you can also they had a special desk that took care of that the last day.

We placed the steward tip on our shipboard account, we also gave him more as he well deserved it.

You can add the Stewards tip to your shipboard account. The wait staff tip is added automatically ($6.50/person/day). The only adjustment you can make is to enable, disable, or delete it. That is, you either have it as $0.00/person/day or as $6.50/person/day. At least that is what we were told at the Sun Purser's desk. Personally, I don't like that it is automatically added. I love the flexibility of having it added, just please ask me during embarkation, on my cruise forms, etc. whether I want this or not and then give me the flexibility to alter the amounts per day and per server if I wish. I cancelled ours on principal and gave the wait staff their tips personally.
