I have noticed lately more comments about not being happy with service and auto tipping.   My idea is for the cruise lines to just increase the price of the cruise by $ 12.00 a day per person and advertise that tips are included except for bar drinks.  I feel this will get the cruise lines the $ for the tips and stop the issues at guest relation desk of people wanting to remove the tipping.  I also think that people will still give extra tips to the cabin steward and main dining room staff for exceptional service.  Just like the high end cruises have a no tipping required policy,  it is just built into the up front price.
