Do You Tip Butlers On Silversea?

Do You Tip Butlers On Silversea?

Silversea Cruises are known for providing their guests with luxurious experiences that include first-class service from a team of highly trained staff. One of the staff members that guests may encounter is the butler, who is responsible for attending to the needs of guests staying in select suites. 

What can butlers on Silversea do for you?

A butler is responsible for taking care of the guests’ needs and making their stay as comfortable as possible. They are trained professionals who provide personalised service to each guest, from unpacking and packing their luggage to arranging for special requests, such as dinner reservations, spa treatments, and shore excursions.

Butlers on Silversea can also serve your breakfast in bed, rearrnage cabin furniture to your taste, offer ship guides, and even host a party for you and your friends you meet onboard. They are available every hour of the day to cater to your needs.

Tipping butlers on Silversea

Firstly, it’s important to note that gratuities are included onboard Silversea Cruises and guests are not expected to tip individual staff members. However, if you feel that a particular staff member has gone above and beyond to make your stay more enjoyable, you are welcome to offer a personal gratuity.

However, it is not uncommon for guests to tip their butler as a gesture of appreciation for their exceptional service. It is important to note that this is a personal choice and never a requirement onboard Silversea cruises. 

If you decide to tip your butler, there is no set amount, and it is entirely up to your discretion. Some guests choose to give a cash tip at the end of their cruise, while others may choose to give a gift such as a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates.

Other ways to tip

Small gift

Some guests may opt to bring gifts to the ship for your favourite staff members. Small tokens are a lovely and easy way to say thank you, especially if the gift represents where a guest is from or a local speciality from a shore excursion. 

Words of Gratitude

A good way to express your gratitude is to mention them on the comment card left in your cabin or mention their name to the cruise director to show your appreciation.

Cash Tip

You can, of course, leave an extra cash tip in your suite when you are disembarking. This is a nice gesture to say an extra thank you to your butler however it isn’t necessary. 

Ultimately, the decision to tip your butler on a Silversea cruise is up to you. While gratuities are included in the cruise fare, a personal gratuity is a way to show your appreciation for exceptional service. A daily amount from these included tips will be set for your butler, however, if you feel that your butler went above and beyond to make your stay more enjoyable, a gratuity may be a way to acknowledge their hard work and dedication
