Royal Caribbean’s Suite Class product includes butler service

Royal Caribbean’s Suite Class product includes butler service


Royal Caribbean International said that for the first time in its history it will offer butler service in some of its top-end suites.
The cruise line made the disclosure in announcing the details of its Royal Suite Class product in 2016.
Suite Class debuted earlier this year on Celebrity Cruises, and Royal executives have said it was coming to Royal Caribbean, as well. 
In the top level of Royal Suite Class, called Star Class, guests will receive the services of a butler whose training will be certified by the British Butler Institute. Rather than calling them butlers, however, Royal Caribbean refers to them as Royal Genies.
The Star Class encompasses the high-end two-story Royal Loft Suite, the Owner’s Loft Suite, the four bedroom Family Suite, Grand Loft Suite, Sky Loft Suite and two bedroom Aqua Theater Suite. Other suites will be included in the Sky Class and Sea Class levels.
Royal Suite Class will use the existing suites on Royal’s Oasis- and Quantum-class ships, but package or add amenities and privileges into the fare for those suites.
In addition to the butlers, the amenities at various levels could include free Internet service; special linens and mattresses; bath and beauty products; access to the Coastal Kitchen restaurant; priority reservations for private cabanas at Royal’s private resort in Labadee, Haiti; a separate sun deck; and reserved VIP seating for entertainment productions.  Also included will be complimentary specialty dining; an ultimate beverage package; and inclusive gratuities, Royal said.
Reservations for Suite Class can be booked on cruises beginning in May 2016.
