Concierge OOV Perks

What are the perks of a Concierge OOV stateroom over a 5B stateroom?

Thanks,

There are long posts listing this--have you tried a google search? It is also listed on DCL's web site.

Biggest perk--concierge services including use of the lounge and sun deck.

Room is the same size I believe you just get the benefits of the concierge service.

120 day booking window
Shoreside concierge to email / call prior to cruise
Separate check in at port, always first boarding group
Access to concierge lounge on dream/fantasy (free cocktail hours twice a day - snacks throughout day)
Access to concierge sundeck on deck 13
On embarkation day you get a chance to change/make any reservations you didn't already make without having to go to multiple places (they have everyone from palo/remy/spa/kids clubs etc in the lounge when you board and a concierge sits down with your family and goes over your itinerary)
Free ipad rental, board games, free bagged popcorn, free bottle water/softdrinks to restock your in-room fridge, 100 minutes? or so free internet

probably more I am forgetting but I will add later

Can you get a cabania on the family beach at 120 days? Do you go online and book it or does the concierge staff do it?

You can get one yes... if you log in at midnight on the day the booking opens that increases your chances of location and availability. This is with you booking it yourself, the concierge shoreside wouldn't be able to book it until 8am so chances are they could be gone by that time.

You can have the concierge shoreside book the stuff for you if you don't want to do it yourself but as I mentioned above they aren't into work until 8am so I would book your cabana yourself at midnight if you want to be sure you get one.

The concierge can book a cabana. I went on at midnight showed they were all booked. Called first thing the next morning, they said they always hold a few back for guests who call in.

I would. The concierge hold back the last ones on the family beach (4 or 5 cabanas).

They can be booked by any concierge guest.

If you want a lower number cabana (closer to cookies and the bathrooms) then get on there at midnight eastern time. When I booked ours on our upcoming cruise, they were sold out in 7 minutes.

You could not book the ones on the end of the family beach though, they were reserved for the concierge bookings.
