no tips at all
I think no tipping-policy is the best. The prices of cruises should be raised so that tipping is not longer necessary.

Re: no tips at all
hmmmm, I don't really want them to raise the price of the cruise. I can barely afford to cruise at today's rates. I do sympathize with the service staff that they basically don't get paid by the cruise lines anything more than the tips. I especially feel for the ones that work the Lido deck buffets that don't get tips. That has to really bite!!! But, I must confess I don't want to have to pay more to make up for it either. No easy answer I guess........

According to Carnival's new automatic tipping, they have added .75 cents per person for the Lido Deck staff. It's probably not enough as they're the ones dealing with the majority of children/teens.
