Default Better to prepay or tip at the end

What opinions does everyone have about prepay the tip or tip at the end. We are going on Royal Caribbean next month and just wanted to find the smartest way to tip. My only concern about prepaying the tip is what if we get bad service and wish we had tipped less? The good thing is we dont have to worry about getting cash at the end.

If it were me, I would pay at the end. I like to be able to tip according to the service I receive. While I've never had a truly bad experience with any staff on a cruise ship, some are better than others.
