Default will I need cash for tips on HAL?

I know there's a lot of confusion about tipping on HAL, and apparently their tipping policy is about to change. I leave in 2 days for my first cruise ever, and I'd like to know if, at this point in time, I need cash for the tips or is there a ship card I can charge them to? Or can I put tips on my personal charge card? I'm just trying to figure out how much cash to take along. Thanks.

Default Re: will I need cash for tips on HAL?

From what I've heard on other boards from people who have contacted HAL about the pending changes, the provision for tipping on your account won't go in to effect until later -- spring is what I've heard. No guarantee, but I would expect to have to take cash along for tips. People (who don't use confusion as an excuse) generally tip the same on HAL as on other ships, so any guidelines you've heard would apply to HAL also.
