Default Are tips pooled in the dining room?

I was not aware until recently that tips are often pooled in the dining room! Is this the policy on RCI? Has this always been the policy or just started recently! What about cabin attendants!

Thank You,

In the past, if we knew tips were pooled we would have been less generous...the idea is that we gave more than suggested to the individuals who we felt gave great service, not the pool. Hope they received their fair share of the pool if there was one at the time. Pre-set tipping does lead to poor service as there is no incentive to hustle.. Years ago we vacationed in Antigua-- tips were pre-set & everyone had a secure job. Service & attitude was VERY poor as a result!
