You can also go to the Guest Relations Desk on the ship and request vouchers for the tips. Your cabin steward will deliver the to your cabin on the last day of your cruise.

If you choose to prepay, who gets tip?
You're still going to tip room service, right?
And what about the waiters in the alternative restaurants?
If not prepaying, list the people you use to tip onboard! What's normal?
And how many people from your personal "stateroom staff" normally gets tip? How many people is there?

If you put the tips on your account, the vouchers are for your waiter, assistant waiter, head waiter, and your cabin attendant.

What's the difference between the 3 waiters?

??? The waiter and assistant waiter for your main dining room table, and their supervisor. Look here.

We always carry one dollar bills to tip the bartenders. As for the dining room people, we tip for as many nights that we use the dining room. Our room steward is usually the one that gets the biggest tip.

How do I choose prepaying my tip in "My Cruises" on the internet?
Clicking "Prepay Gratuities: Add Service Charge At A Cost Of $70" in the Guest Detail section?
(This is normal tip, right? Not "drinking money" or something?)
Thanks for help!

I guess that is an option for European cruise guests because I don't see that choice for me. But to answer your question, yes, that would be the tips for the dining room and cabin staff.
