When you think of a cruise “deal,” it’s easy to just view the bottom line. But the real deal in cruising is the luxury experience you can enjoy through booking a suite with actual butler service. Oceania Cruises offers butler service (pictured) that includes packing and unpacking, making spa and restaurant reservations, arranging shore excursions – and even drawing your bath. Your butler will meet you at the check-in area for your cruise and escort you to your cabin, where he will check you in privately and explain the cabin’s amenities. Look for him to also deliver daily canapés and tea, or serve your dinner course by course in your cabin. Other cruise lines also offer trained butlers – and at a fraction of what you would pay for the same service at a five-star hotel on land. Want to know more about luxury cruising options?
