Default Re: what to tip Maitre d?

I don 't tip the maitre'd unless he actually does something for me( like change a table or reservation or order a birthday cake). The maitre'd s on the cruise ship are part of mangement and get paid much better then the staff. Tipping for them is optional , based on service rendered( and no, coming by the table on the last night to smile and say hi is not a tippable service)
