Default Butler?

I have a cruise booked on Costa. The brochure states that one of the features of having a suite is having a butler. Is the butler they refer to a room steward that is assigned to solely your suite, or something else? I am trying to pre-plan my tipping budget and need to know what to plan for. Also, does anyone know if Costa charges tips to your account like I have read that Carnival now does?

a Butler is so much more than a room steward he is your personal attendant he will take care of any and all of your needs while aboard, want something, need something all you have to do is ask. Definately tip your butler.

What I mean is, is the butler the room steward too, or is there a butler and a room steward? I just want to be prepared. Thanks for the reply.

You will have both. The butler to take care of persoanl needs, such as arranging shore excursions or serving dinner in your suite course-by-course; the cabin steward takes care of your cabin. Our butler, Anette, was WONDERFUL. She brought us a bottle of champagne one afternoon to go with our pizza!
