Call me old fashion, but I like the way Celebrity and RCI has been doing it with the vouchers. I still after all these years have a hard time "trusting" that the gratuities are being paid. I'm not at all suggesting anything here that the cruise lines are cheating the crew. But glitches happen, and it is a human sitting there typing in the information into the computer, mistakes can be made. With the voucher I have something to hand the crew member and they know their gratuity is on account. The voucher gives them proof too. When they collect their gratuities if a name was missing off the list they have the voucher to show.
