Question Tipping Extra?

We are couple who just booked a Family Veranda stateroom that normally holds three or more people. Should we tip the attendant extra because he will be missing the pre-paid gratuities for the normal amount of people?

If the cruiseline let you book that cabin with only 2 people, I would just tip the usual for 2. The cabin attendant will still only have to clean up, change towels, sheets for 2 not any extra.
