Default Tipping in the CL

This is sort of "off topic" but is in regards to CL. Just curious as to what most people do regarding tipping. Is it more appropriate to tip the waiters after each visit (cocktails and snacks) or would it be better to wait until the cruises end? We are Diamond members and usually leave a few bucks after each night in the lounge but I'm seeing that most CL folks wait till the end.

We are doing our first TA and our first suite this coming Wednesday and want to be sure I do the right thing without looking foolish.

Thanks for your advice.

Tips are automatically added to all purchases, if you want to tip extra for great service wait til the last day or 2. Tip only those who went above and beyond for you
