yup......75 cents p.p. each day. It used to be "at your discretion" but I do think they do a better job now. If they only show up the night before gratuities, I don't tip them. Fotunately that hasn't been the case for us with "RCI" for a long time.

OK thanks! So, I'm all covered with the tipping then! No worries about having the extra cash on hand!

When we sailed the Explorer earlier this month the head waiter came around to each table every night.

And yes this person is included on your prepaids

yup, just got back last night and we prepaid as well. The headwaiter was included. If you ask us, the waiter that did the best job and the most work was the assistant waiter. He brought us our drinks and bread. He was very attentive and very kind. He offered to take pictures for us and just generally was a better waiter. Our headwaiter made mistakes and disappeared alot.K
