    What perks do you really get by booking concierge?

    You are waited on rather than being expected to do anything for yourself. Things like looking up info on the DCL site or doing a google search would not be expected, whereas those of us in steerage class take a bit of effort to accomplish the same things.

    There are many threads detailing the concierge perks on the individual ships (there is some variation).

    In suite dining from Palo is only for Cat R (royal suites on all ships)

    Well put about being "waited on"

    There is an element of convenience, of the wheels being greased, the feeling of being surrounded by pixie dust.

    One concierge host told me that guest services does not exist, that if I need or want anything, or have a question I was to go though him.

    The centralized lounge on the new ships is very nice.

    When a concierge host heard we "did something on our own" (which required standing in line), we were "informed", to say it gently, that we should ask / request they handle such tasks, as not waste our time onboard in line. :lmao:

    Needless to say we discontinued mentioning any lines we encountered. ;)

    They also let the characters know you are concierge and they spend more time with your kids. Our first two cruises were not concierge but our last cruise was. It's definitely hard to go back to regular .. lol :) We were waited on, the rooms were fabulous, the private lounge for drinks and snacks was amazing and they got us a cabana when we could never get one.
    :)
