I'm going out on a limb here and asking a question that tends to start post wars.
I'm sure that we can keep it civil, though.
I know that I pay the daily surcharge for tips, and I am fine with that.
I also like to give the waiters in the MDR, as well as the room steward staff, a little extra at the end of the cruise (I know that it is not mandatory)
For those that do, and actually wish to answer, what is a fair guide to the amount to tip?
A couple of cruises ago, I tipped the headwaiter $50 and each of the assistants $35 for what I felt was outstanding service. While the assistants seemed ecstatic, the headwaiter seemed a bit perturbed. Did I overtip the assistants, undertip the headwaiter, or just making something out of nothing? (This was an 8 night cruise)
