Default another first time cruiser confused



tipping is still confusing-
If I wish to tip an individual person- do they keep the tip or do they throw it into the pool?
the amount added to the bill seems very minimal considering what I will be getting

If all money goes into the "pool"- could I not just add additional $$ to the bill at the end of the crusie?

The specifics are these:
IF you leave the auto tipping on your account and THEN give someone extra, even though they are required to turn it in initially, once your account has been reviewed and they see you left the tips on, then what you gave extra is RETURNED to the individual you gave it too. That is why they ask for your name and room number when you do give an individual tip.

i would personally have ALL tips removed from my account and then tip individuals that i want to tip personally -- that way i know that they actually received the tip

Am I getting this right? Are you saying that if I don't allow Princess to automatically take the tip off my credit card, but instead tip only those I think deserve it, then that person/people have to turn it in and share it instead of keeping it for themselves?
