Default Auto tipping ???

Which cruise lines have this policy of putting tips on your sail and sign card? We have been on CCL, RCL and havent run into that. Thanks

Hi Rick,
I know Princess does for sure, at least on the ships that offer Personal Choice Dinning.

Princess, NCL and now also an experiment on some Carnival ships. Though in all cases you can go to the purser's desk and remove them and tip in the traditional manner.

You can not tip in the traditional manner on NCL. We just returned from the Sun and if you give cash to the waitstaff, room steward etc. they are supposed to put this money back into the pool to be divided. So what you have to do is go the front desk and fill out a form stating who you wish to tip, how much, if you want any tips removed etc. I also wrote down how much I disliked the policy.

Also when you pay for most bar dirnks and sometimes in the specialty restaurants there was a space to write in an additional tip. This they get to keep, if I understood the one bartender correctly.
