Default Butler Service on Costa Atlantica

Hello,

I am going on the Feb 24 sailing on the Atlantica in a suite category. The brochures says we will have a personal butler. Can someone please tell me what services the butler performs for you and what is the customary amount to tip per person per day for said butler?

Thanks in advance.

Matt

Your Butler will introduce himself upon your arrival. He'll be available to you for most of the day... will bring any room service items you need, handle your valet requirements, help you entertain... serve to guests... and lots more. He/she is generally tipped at the same rate as your Cabin Steward(ess)... depending, to some extent, on how much you use the butler's services. It is a very pleasant addition to the ambiance on the ship and makes your stay rather effortless and enjoyable.

Thank you Ernie, that sounds wonderful. So he/she is in addition to the steward/stewardess then?

Yes... the Butler is in addition to your regular stewardess. You'll find even your steward/stewardess will be excellent... they generally put their best people in the suite areas. Carefull about the Butler! It's an easy thing to get used to!

Enjoy!

Matt:

The cabin steward(ess) takes care of the cabin. The butler takes care of you. Though remember, he/she isn't your private butler. They have many more suites to attend to.
