You may not be aware of it, but the tipping factor is a matter of option. If you do not want to have the tipping amount debited to your onboard account, then you can opt to have it removed from your account by going to the Purser's desk and filling out a little form.

Problem with the tipping being debited to your onboard account is that you don't really always know who gets it. Besides, I don't see why I should tip someone who has had nothing to do with me directly.
