Default tipping the maitre'd

HELP!! I am on the last day of our cruise on the Elation and we are filling our tip envelopes and nobody can give us a straight answer on how much to tip the head waiter and the maitre'd. It lists amounts for everyone but them. I will check back in a couple of hours to see if anyone has answered. Any help appreciated.

Melanie

Melanie.. my rule of thumb.. if they have done something for you to make your cruise more pleasant @ $10 -15.
If they've done nothing except greet you at the door.. nada!

Regards,
Kuki
