The trend certainly seems to be toward required tipping, automatically added to shipboard accounts. It's a lot more convenient for the cruise lines, and the crew don't have to go around with hands out and hope they don't get stiffed. Let's hope at least the luxury lines maintain their policy of no tipping!
