Default How much are you supposed to tip a Concierge

We just booked an owner's suite on the Norway and we've never had the opportunity to use a concierge before. The only problem is that we don't know what to tip him. We've looked thru the internet but have found nothing. If anyone could be of help, it would be greatly appreciated.

This may be all wrong! But... We have been tipping the Consierge $40 for the week.
We have no idea whether that is good or bad, if we are cheap or over doing it. All I know is that I absolutely LOVE having the service available...no standing in lines! Almost instantanious answers to questions.

Maybe some "experts" will enlighten us both!

Thanks for the info....You tipped $40 for two ppl so I am thinking since we are a party of 4 maybe we should tip $80?

By the way, Jim, I think we are on the same cruise as you are, Norway, 5/13/01.
Just like you, we have been counting the days. 27 days and counting!!!

PS..my wife says I stiffed the Consierge the last time...should have been about $50 for the week. By the way, you will love Consierge service...let him/her book your tours, make reservations at LeBistro if you plan on that, he/she will make diembarkation a snap on 5/20/01 (I dread the thought of the cruise being over).
Seriously, let's say hi..We sailed the Norway on her inaugraul back in 1980 and this is our goodbye to the Blue Lady.

Maybe we could meet on the second day. Since you have been on the ship before, where would be a good place to meet?
