Default tipping on HAL

In spite of HAL's "no tipping" policy, we fully intend to tip our cabin steward, waiter, etc. My question concerns tipping for drinks, since they don't automatically add 15% like some other lines. We are not heavy drinkers, so the suggestion to tip your favorite bartender or waiter at the end of the cruise doesn't help much. We may only order a drink every second or third day. Is it OK to tip in cash when being served the drinks? I read a post which said you can't add a tip to the tab when signing. Is this true on HAL? We've only been on Princess before, so this was not an issue. Only two months till we sail! Can hardly wait! Thanks, Helen

Here is an answer I received on the same question.
The other answer was to carry a bunch of $1.00 around for bar tipping.

Hi Steve,

This is my biggest frustration with the HAL tipping policy. I wnat them to make it possible for me to
add it to a bill when I sign for the service, but currently it does not work that way.

I went back near the end of the week and gave tips to those whose services I most used druing th
week. Someothers did not get tips though.
