Another hypothetical CL question: If you had to choose between BWI CL (which we love) and Poly CL (we love Poly, but have not stayed CL there yet), which would you choose and why?

I asked this on the AKL board, but I think I'll ask it here too.

Does AKL Cl still have the Wii in the lounge. My boys would love this if we have some rainy days. We don't spend a lot of time in the parks anymore.

I know the CL rooms at AKL are on the 4th floor, but are they reasonably close to the lobby or should I request it. I have heard about the 10 minutes walks to the lobby at this resort.

We are also staying a BWI CL after the cruise. We have not stayed at this BWI CL level either. We have stayed at YC, BC, Poly and WL club levels. I loved WL and Poly. BC and YC were just ok. My favorite resort is YC, but I'm just not sure CL was worth it. How does BWI compare? Thanks

Are all the standard CL rooms at BC located on the 5th floor or are there some on other floors? Also, do all standard rooms on the 5th floor have a full balcony? Are there any rooms that would be a hike to the lounge? Thanks!

The standard club rooms are on the 5th floor. The deluxe club rooms are not on the 5th floor. Only some of the BC club rooms have balconies. If you ask to be close to the elevator, you should be close to the lounge.

So I should request a room with a full balcony? We really want one so our boys can go to bed and we have somewhere to sit and relax for a while before going to bed ourselves. It's too bad when you play club level prices you are not guaranteed a balcony.😟

Yes, if it's important for you to have a balcony, make that your only request.

I have a family of 5, and while I really would like a balcony, having a daybed in the rooms trumps it. It would be great to have both a balcony AND a daybed. I think about half of the rooms have balconies.

If we request close to elevator will that also be close to the lounge at the YC CL?

Yes, for any category: standard, garden or water view.

Hi Ofinn! I am staying BC CL for the first time. I was just curious as to what made the BC and YC club levels just okay in your opinion.

Thanks!

Do any club level rooms at the Boardwalk have a daybed? Checking in next Wednesday and want to know if I should put this in as a request.

I expected the CM to come out with two of those little wine glasses they have, but instead she brought out two styrofoam to-go cups that she had FILLED with wine. I told my husband I think we got the whole bottle in two cups.
Thanks for posting your experience. That's funny about the wine.

I know they do have daybeds. We have a family of five so we will get one of those rooms (that's what we were told anyway). I would request if you don't have 5 in your family just in case.
