I can't see letting the way gratuities are handled be an influence on what cruise line I'll sail. I'll bet 90% of the time the actual dollar amount will be nearly the same.

To me the architecture of the ship, the itinerary, the service and amenities on board are all more important factors than whether the gratuity is automatic or not. Of course, I almost always add to an automatic gratuity.
