Default Tipping on Coral Princess

Does anyone have any practical advice regarding tipping. We are happy to tip but are considering making our own arrangements rather than having 10$ per person automatically deducted. Is it frowned upon if we tip independantly and could it affect the service we get?

Once onboard go to the purser's desk and ask that the automatic tips be removed. They will ask you why to determine if it is service related.

Just tell them that you want to handle the tipping yourself.

[b]Not tipping would have no effect on the service. In fact the waiters would not even know that you were stiffing them. The tips are now at $10.50 per day per person. If you do tip individually it will go into the tip pool anyway.
