Butler/Concierge tipping advice

Norwegian Cruise Line - boards.cruisecritic.com
We are taking our second NCL cruise,our first in a Penthouse Suite.

I have read all the threads and posts about tipping the butler but little or no mention has been made of the concierge,other than what his/her duties entail.Tipping is a discretionary thing based on services provided etc.and other than the daily service charge no recommendations are made.The general suggested tipping on these boards for the butler is $10 per person per day.What about the concierge?

If the same suggestion applies the gratuities get to be pretty expensive for a 14 night cruise.$20 per person per day plus $12 per perso per day service charge

= $896.Plus tips in the specialty dining rooms and extra for the cabin steward and favourite waiter/bar steward,if warranted.You are looking towards $1,000.

I would like some advice about tipping the concierge from people who have had suites.

Keep in mind the price of a suite stateroom includes certain amenities that the butler & concierge are required to provide.

Thanks for your input.
