You may have heard by now that Silversea is planning to offer butler service to all passengers by the end of the year (the announcement was made this week during the annual Cruise Shipping Miami convention
). Currently, only Royal, Grand and Owner's Suite guests benefit from the assistance of a butler. By mid-June, all Silver and Medallion Suites will have butler service and by early December, all accommodations will have access to this perk. Silversea's new Silver Spirit will debut in December with butler service for all already in place.
So what does a butler do? Silversea gives some examples, including unpacking clothing, preparing a scented Jacuzzi bath and facilitating a dry cleaning request. But scented bath aside, those chores are so mundane – which got us thinking about some of the more indulgent tasks you might ask a butler to handle. Vote in our poll and please share your opinions below on how you would employ a cruise ship butler -- either in reality or in your best cruise ship fantasy!
