I agree with you.
6 The Exclusive Nightly Diamond Event for Diamond, Diamond Plus and Pinnacle Club members will take place approximately 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm in a dedicated lounge and will feature complimentary wine, champagne (sparkling wine) and fountain drinks, and a 'happy hour' discount of 25% off beer and drinks with liquor. Drinks will need to be consumed within the venue during the hours of the event and can not be removed from the venue.
15 The Concierge Lounge is designated as a smoke-free area. We respectfully request that guests observe a Smart Casual dress code when visiting the Lounge (no swim or pool attire is allowed, footwear is required at all times). Guests 21 years and younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times. Guests and friends of Suite guests/Diamond Plus members are not allowed into the Concierge lounge due to limited space.
This is what I READ and I had the verbal confirmation from the C&A rep that the same experience as we had with Celebrity would be extended to Diamond. We went to the diamond lounge, not concierge lounge. the member benefits clearly state no guests IN THE CONCIERGE (DIAMOND PLUS) LOUNGE.
I receieved no notice that explained that my roommate was not allowed.
And I reported that I was treated rudely, not that I was mad because of enforcement of previously unknown rules.
Please understand the difference. I respect the rules and next month we will not attempt to breach the hallowed doors of the righteous.
We had wine packages before, and have them again. While we enjoyed The Dungeon where the Diamond nightly event was held, I'm sure we will have a better time with friends I've met on our roll call, members of a newly formed group, the Steerage Society, meeting in the Champaigne Bar on the Mariner TA next month.They seem like a much warmer and accepting group then I've experienced on this thread.
