I will only tip the Maitre' D the first night of the cruise. It kind of insures getting a great table, plus he will look for you the rest of the time to see if he can squeeze out another. Make him work for you.

My Bill was $48.00 I gave her a $100.00 dollar bill and told her to keep the change ...you should have seen her face. Being a young college girl she could really use the money. It made my night more than hers I think.

Same way I treat anyone that serves me if I have the money. I usually go by the 10% rule when getting services remdered like my truck fixed or my house painted. they will tell me how much it's going to cost and I tell them "NO treat me as if you were doing it for your mom and Ill pay you 10% more." I get supurb service.

Just my 3 cents
Yep That's what I'm talking about. MrOctober, That was a real "WOW WOW" tip, Nice

Nope. Sorry.
Zero. Zip. Notta. We don't tip the Maitre d'.

We tip our waiter, assistant waiter and bar server very well.

On our last cruise, we walked past the Maitre d' seven nights, and not even eye contact with the guy. On our last evening at sea, he shows up..... glad-ragging us, big smile, asking us if we would like for him to take our picture, acting like he's our long-lost relative. Couldn't have been any nicer.

I don't think so! Homey don't play that.

goin'cruisin the tip the waitress gets the message is one penny. Although I never got one, when I was a waitress, I surly knew what it meant. In California if you try to tip a police officer you end up in handcuffs. They call if, let me see if I can remember, Oh yeah "Bribery"
