What are the amounts for Butlers and staff?

 

 

The official policy is that they discourage tipping individual staff but use the daily service charge , now part of the fare.to reward all staff and not just those who meet guests as a part of their job

Thanks for this.  I'm not normally one happy about lines raising the DSC but this is fairly nice change.  They have some of the lowest rates out there, they are giving lots of time until change.

I'm used to NCL who raises them nearly annually with no notice other than if you prepay you can lock in old rate.  They have some of the highest out there and for a family of four it adds up and does impact choices.
