Default tipping acknowledgment

I know this has been answered but I've read 4 pages and do not find a specific answer. We have always cruised Celebrity or HAL and are familiar with the envelope routine. How does the staff know who tipped auotomatically and who didn't? We are going on Carnival and then Princess in the next few months. I hate the thought of feeling like a cheapskate on the last night of our cruise. Thanks in advance. Dennis

They have access to a list that shows who tipped on their sign and sail and didn't.

Cruise line has access to this info but I dout the working personnel does. That's why it's a good idea to pay the cabin atendant and restaurant stuward pernonnally.

Nope. I asked a staff member aboard a Carnival ship and the staff DOES have access....if you stiff 'em - they know!

We were given vouchers to put into each of the envelopes. They were even preprinted with the names of the people. I received them in my cabin on the 2ns to last night so that I could hand them out the next day. That was on Disney.

The only time I used auto tipping, I still put a little extra in the envelopes and wrote them a note telling them I used the auto tipping option. I much prefer to hand the envelope to the staff myself and verbally thank them for their hard work.
