Default tip for maitre d'

we are taking a 14 day cruise with auto tipping being in effect. if my wife and I want to get a better table, i.e., one more romantic or one by a window with a view, could we tip the matre d' say 15.00 for a better table? thanks.

Hi Bay,
Thats always worth a try, if there is a table available that you'd preffer, he will certainly try to accomidate you, good luck. Be sure to go up and visit him the first day, but first check out the table you are assigned, it may be just what you are looking for.
