We are cruising HAL in Feb for the third time. We always tip more than the suggested amount (Other Lines) if it is warrented. But I wonder if the waiter is tipped $20 up front and told we believe in tipping. Would it work out better for us if we make a request for something that requires extra work for him. We are not the types to be a pain in the tail. But once in a while something someone else has looks great. And you have to ask if they could get you one to try, etc. This is our 12th cruise, so I do know the ins and outs.
