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.
