Default Tipping waiters with choice seating? How does it work?

We are first time Pricess cruisers and are used to tipping the waiter at the end of the week? How does this work with choice seating? Thanks

You don't. It will come out of the $10/day tip pool that each passenger is in.

If you find a wait staff that you like and eat at their tables for the whole cruise, you can, if you wish, give them an extra tip.

SS Norway (12 times) '85 - '97; Radiance OS 06/01; Island Princess 11/04, Grand Princess 11/04/05, Golden Princess 7/21/06, Golden Princess 2/24/07, Explorer of the Seas 12/23/07, Island Princess 11/15/08

Just to elaborate on Irish Sharks post, the $10 per day per person takes care of everybody including the cabin steward. You can give a little more if you like.
