concierge on Magic/Wonder

I have seen a list on here about the benefits of concierge for Fantasy/Dream. Does anyone have a list of the benefits of concierge for Magic/Wonder? Thanks in advance!

I'm curious, too. Seems like you get a lot more with the Dream/fantasy concierge.

You get all the same benefits, but you do not get a concierge lounge or private sundeck.

The Magic/Wonder offer the option of a 2 bedroom suite, which the Dream/Fantasy do not.

We sailed our first cruise cl. It was very very nice to have a lounge to decompress from the craziness at the pool and cabanas. We also got to board very quickly, no long line to wait in. We never went to guest relations, the cl team handles everything. Plus we got private tables for dining. We really enjoyed the extra space in our stateroom too. We are now very spoiled and would only sail cl on the dream and fantasy. Because of the lack of a lounge and private sun deck on the magic and wonder were probably would not sail cl.

We sailed concierge on the Magic in a 1 bedroom and loved it. The staff was very attentive and helpful. As we had not sailed concierge on the Fantasy/Dream, we did not miss the lounge and sundeck. We had a great trip and came home saying we would not hesitate to do it again.

Our next cruise is in concierge on the Fantasy in a 1 bedroom. I expect that we will be happy with the lounge/sundeck. All other perks are the same on all ships.

My biggest concern with our upcoming cruise has to do with have almost twice as many people on the ship. I'm hoping the crowds won't be overwhelming.

We have been in concierge on the Msgic, Wonder and also fantasy.

On the Magic and fantasy the hosts come around to your rooms a couple if times a day to see if you need anything.

On rmbarkstion there is a meet in a bar deck 3 and they will go through your plans, book palo and shore trips for you, there will be a kids club CM there to register you.

Also during the cruise each day you get gifts like food in the room, and arcade cards for the kids.

All suites get 100 minutes of Internet free the royals get free Internet all cruise.

Concierge can order hot breakfast of me use and also hot dinner from the MDRs st set times set menus.

Royals get Pslo in room for dinner if you want it.

You get priority tenders and in Alaska you may get special viewing.

You can do anything through the hosts that guest services do.

There is a concierge party with a character during the cruise.

Request like extra palo spa appointments can be organised.

The crowds are very overwhelming! and we had just come from wdw but we still had a great time...like I stated before, we really really liked the cl to relax in.

We have been on concierge on each of the four ships and it is certainly worth it on any ship. One big thing regarding concierge on the classic ships is that all concierge rooms on the magic and wonder are suites. So even without the concierge benefits we like to book these for the extra room alone.
