Dream Concierge Question

My ? is once you board, do they lead you right to the concierge lounge or can you go after you eat lunch/have aquaduck time? And how do you know which MDR is serving sit down lunch on that day?

We were escorted to the Lounge.

MDR for lunch should be Enchanted Garden; if you aren't escorted to the Concierge Lounge, the crew member greeting you (after your family's arrival is announced) will typically try to send you to Enchanted Garden instead of Cabanas!

They take you straight to the lounge, but you don't have to stay there. Just say hello, drop off your bags (our host put them in our room before 12:30 so we did not have to haul them around), and go do what you want. If you do not want reservations, excursions, or a cabana, you will have time to meet with the hosts later.

If you know the ship just tell them that you will make your own way up there.
Your idea is a good one because it might be a good idea to wait a little bit before going to the lounge because it gets very busy. Also sometime it take until 12:00 or 1:00 for the rooms to open up.

We have done Concierge 3 times on the new ships.

- Very late bus(2:00) from WDW to Dream, they didn't have anyone extra to walk us up there. This was our first Disney cruise. I'm glad I looked at the map before we boarded. I found our room dropped off luggage then went in the lounge in the side door and got a VERY puzzled look from Juila :-)
- Later bus(12:00) from MCO to Dream, we were walked up to the lounge
- On second bus(9:45 ish) from MCO to Fanatsy, we were walked up to the lounge

We were on the Dream last week, and Concierge Lounge was packed! There was no place to sit, and of course, our kids were going crazy with excitement. In hindsight, we should have gone to lunch, then met with the Concierge after the lounge cleared out. The lounge cleared out once rooms were available, which was at about 12:30.
