Tom & Mary, did you use your pre-cruise tipping system on Holland America? Although I know that most cruisers on HAL tip anyway, the official "line" is no tipping required, and I wondered if you found that tipping ahead made a difference in service. I had heard service was excellent, perhaps partly because no tipping was expected and therefore the competition for it was gone.
