Default Did Royal charge us enough for pre-paid tip?

There are 3 of us in one cabin, 4 night/5 day cruise. Travel called me to say he added the pre-paid gratuity (which I asked for). He said my cc would be charged $117. I said ok. Afterward, I thought about it and it seemed it should be more. I called him back and he called Royal again and then called me back and said that Royal said the correct amount for the 3 of us is $117.

Is that the right amount?

Royal's tipping is $9.75/day/pp = $39/pp X 3 = $117! You can always give more the last night if you feel someone deserves it. Enjoy!

Do you know the breakdown for tipping. Carnival just does $10 per day per person. You would just think RCI would just make it $10 to make it even.
