Default Do you tip at the specialty restuarant (Subatini, Sterling)?

What is the rule of tipping at the specialty restuarant? Since the authomatic $10 a day already charge, are we obligated to tip more? Since the meal at specialty restuarant does cost about $25-$30. I have no doubt that if the server is excellent beyond the normal then I would tip more, other wise is it manditory?

I was told that the charge is really the TIP for the staff. As such I did not leave a TIP.

The charge for the specialty restaurants includes the gratuity.

The pizzerias on the Sun Princess class operate as bars for tipping purposes. They do not have complementary beverages, so the servers receive the gratuities from the sale of beverages.
