Concierge question

When do the concierge contact me to book my reservations for spa, dining, excursions, etc? Or do I contact them? My 120 day out date is in April.

They called me the day before and let me know that they could make reservations for me. I told them I was getting on-line at midnight to make my own reservations (I wanted a Cabana and an excursion that had limited availabilty so I didn't want to take a chance on missing out.) If you are just wanting spa and dining reservations, or excursions that aren't particularly limited then you can just have them make the reservations for you, but don't expect a call until close to the 120 mark.

No, but you will meet with your ship concierge when you board and they will book whatever you want. Just tell them which ones you're interested in.

I never received any sort of contact from the concierge staff before our booking window opened. If you want them to do something for you, contact them yourself before the date you need to book.

We never got a call, email, or anything from concierge. We did not originally book concierge though. We upgraded a few months after (but WELL before the 120 mark). I booked the cabana and a BBB and emailed concierge other things. They immediately responded and have been great since.

We received an email and follow up phone call a couple of days before the 120 mark. They also emailed our DU TA, and she forwarded the email to me.

I got an email and then a follow up phone call as well. Very helpful and great to work with. Agreed about the cabana reservation tho. They couldn't get it for me because they were all booked up at midnight. Don't wait if you really want one!!
