Having sailed with NCL (Jewel) I know that some passengers asked this question on the cruise I was on. Although it was/is frowned on, I know that a passenger did in fact insist on having the right to choose, a different arrangement was made for her. This answer may not fit your question exactly but it does present a precedent.

If you are not willing to pay the gratuities - a meagre $10pp - then you should NOT be cruising. You are insulting the staff who will bend over backwards to do anything for you. Tipping is a traditional part of cruising - the staff do not get paid - the tips ARE their salary. Do you work for $4 per day - that is £2. Think about it and do the decent thing......

I had a wonderful time on the gem and done my OWN TIPPING guests should not be paying wages as has already wrongly stated I know for a fact that the $10 a day goes no where near the staff but to the company.Only the 15% charge on drinks etc.bills go to supplement staff wages.It is not being mean but a matter but being able to tip as YOU feel is proper and not being dictated to.

Why not hire a rowing boat and go self catering,then you would be able to buy some oil for your ar-- save it squeaking when you walk.
