It's not only HAL, but many lines that serve a largely American base, no matter where they are sailing. Tipping is also a cultural issue -- it's expected in the US, but not so in many European countries. For what it's worth, many lines started the so-called automatic tipping as a significant number of passengers were not using the tipping envelopes at all. Yet, if you prefer using envelopes, many lines will oblige.
Happy cruising!
