Same here.

But if you pre pay tips, then you are tipping the maitre'd. Also, now that Celebrity automatically adds tips daily to your onboard account, then you tip the maitre d unless you go to guest relations and have the daily tip amount adjusted. From what I read on these boards, when you do that, it affects all service personnel because tips are pooled. So if tips are pooled ,I would think we are tipping the maitre d regardless if we want to or not.
