I do the same thing. I leave the auto tips on our sail 'n sign, then give extra in envelopes or just hand them cash on the last night. There are very few cruises where anyone just got the "recommended" amount. Usually, that was only the head waiter or maitre d'. Everyone we've ever had for server, cabin steward, bar tender, etc., has been just amazing. They remember your names, what you like, always smiling, engaging, and seem to truly care.
