Diamond plus out of concierge lounges


Recommended Posts

I am Dia+ and totally understand why we cannot go in to Concierge lounge.  Although I certainly would like to.

I have also been told by cruise staff that it depends on the ship, size of the lounge, and number or people traveling who are pinnacle or Dia+.   That does make since.   I also always do a spring transatlantic cruise annually  and those cruises have more older passengers and more with higher loyalty status.  The lounges are always packed.

Why can't the open up the larger evening lounge, ie like on the Radiance class the aft lounge on deck 6 from an hour before 1st dining to the start of 2nd dining or maybe start taking away the food a half hour before so that at 8PM they could start the evening entertainment in there.

I know they do when there are a lot of Ds on board (mainly TAs). In the morning the D lounge wasn't too crowded, people just coming in to get their coffee; others stay a bit, but don't linger. The D lounge is available all day, to avoid crowds/quiet time, they may have some food - fruit? cookies? and the coffee machine.

So, we used to go to the lounge early AM to get cappuccino and take it back to our room, wonder if

that is still allowed?   D+ and 1 month to go till we sail on the new ODYSSEY hiphiphoray.

For Odyssey I don't expect Pinnacle's to have access to the Suite Lounge unless they are staying in a full suite, at least until sometime into 2022.  I think we'll all be using the coffee machine in the Diamond Lounge.  

I've sailed Anthem a number of times and been restricted from the Concierge Club but in every case they overflowed the Diamond Lounge into the Music Hall and it's worked quite well.  If you can get past the emotions of being kept out of the Concierge Club whenever it has happened to me the expanded Diamond Lounge offerings has worked out very well.

No one really knows what the lounge rules are going to be when US cruises resume, but based on information from other recently resumed cruises and recent history before cruising paused, the Concierge and Suites Lounges were off limits for D+.  With COVID restrictions in place I would be very surprised if D+ could access the CL on OY.  The GOOD news is, it sounds like there will be some beverage vouchers provided that will probably provide you better coffee than you could get in the CL !  Again, no one knows for sure quite yet but that's been the scuttlebutt.
