Ok, I am going to be very honest. Ofcourse I want to tip I am just not sure if I want to have it done automatically or tip the last night. I think I am worried that everyone around my table will be handing out envelops and I will be sitting there looking silly. I do not want to run around telling the wait staff and the room staff Hey guys I already tipped you. I like the convience of having the tips automatically put on my credit card, but I do not want anyone to feel like I have slighted them. Am I being a little too sensitive.
Gottacruise: I don't think you would be the only one at your table not passing out tips. I believe the staff would not think you've stiffed them if you don't hand them an envelope.
Which ship will you be on?

I believe the wait staff get a list as to who is doing the automatic tipping, so they will know that you've done the automatic tipping. At first I didn't think I would like it, but it really is convient and easy, I would do it again, no problem....you can also let them know that you are doing that way to ease your mind..
Why couldn't you give them an envelope with a personal thank you note letting them know that you put their tips on your account? If you wanted to add something to the standard amount you could put it in that envelope as well.
