We tend to eat in specialty restaurants on cruise ships which have them and as we eat there every night, we always see the Maitre'D each and every evening. He will always come to our table and talk with us during the meal, ask us how we enjoyed it, if there is anything else we would like, etc. Because we usually are extremely well taken care of, the favor is returned and both the maitre'd, and his wait staff, are well taken care of as well, on a nightly basis (in addition to the fee paid to eat there).

It's totally up to the individual, but this is what works well for us.
