Know that tips are put in a pool and shared. If you give someone a cash tip for extra service, are they allowed to keep it? At a bar if you place additional tip on the bill does it go to the bartender or to the pool?
All I can tell you is that the crew contracts stated (not sure if they still do, the ones I’ve seen would be a couple of years old now) that all cash tips must be handed in. It does not specify what happens after that.
But many here will be adamant that they know the answer.
In all honesty though does it matter, the crew know and appear happy with the arrangement, whatever it may be.
