butler traditionally gets 3.50pd p/p --dont know what cruise line you are on but on celebrity site there is a list of the things that the butler will and can do for you --dont get the butler mixed up with the cabin attendant --2 different people and 2 different jobs
Lougee's answer is a good one. Here is what a butler provides on Celebrity.
assistance with unpacking/packing;daily news delivery;full breakfast in-suite lunch & dinner service
in-suite afternoon tea service
evening hors d'oeuvres daily
complimentary espresso & cappuccino
delivery of requested board games
The butler can also do things like taking care of dry cleaning and shoe shines. He can also arrange in suite parties. I would also take advantage of at least dining one time in your suite. It is very romantic.
