May I ask the general amount? 

Just $20 in an 'outstanding service' envelope. Just wanted to let him know we appreciated his efforts. It's the first time I tipped the concierge but felt he had done a good job and should be recognized for that.

And that wasn't worth a tip?

It amazes me that someone wouldn't tip for such effort and service.

I think Mario Concierge on Serenade 

 

Thanks. If it was Mario Reyes he was our very first suite concierge on Liberty. I didn't realize he was still with the company. He was awesome at his job.

Do people usually  tip the Diamond concierge at the end of the cruise.?

 

I tip the concierge if they have done something for me.  I think I have made use of the concierge on half my sailings.  If I have drinks in the Diamond Lounge I tip the servers.

Thanks, that's the kind of amount I was thinking of.

We did on Rhapsody. Alan, the concierge didn't do anything special in particular, but he was so pleasent, greeting everyone like a long lost friend, making sure everyone had a seat and was comfortable, helping the waiters with topping up glasses and generally being an excellent host. 

Alan is very pleasant and has taken care of our needs on several cruises! He is most attentive during the Cocktail hours and goes out of his way to find seating for guests when the DL is crowded.

Just don't answer the phone and save yourself the aggravation.

The call could be about something important!

I wish there would be an option to block these calls....👍

If it's important they'll leave a voicemail.  That's how I deal with it.

Thats what I do too - but then I have to waist my time to deal with voice mails that are nothing but a waist of time.....

Which brings us back to the topic the conciarge should make sure the coffee machine runns 24/ 7 not waste my ( and others ) time making stupid and unecessary calls!🙄

Hi all,

 

What exactly is the point/role of the Diamond Concerige?

 

They don’t appear to have much authority to make things happen? I think it could be such a great resource but just misses the mark. 

 

I guess the second question is... has the Diamond concerige even gone above and beyond for you?

A lot just got off the Adventure 2 weeks ago Cristopfher Dohkit was wonderfull We made a complaint to him about

something (didnt happen) got 2 bottles of champane that we share with our friends.

He could not be any nicer...Got a charge for a drink in the bar before 8;00 pm that nite was REMOVED.....

They go out their way to make you happy

It's like having a fast pass to guest services if they are on duty.  So that can be useful. 

 

Some are more hospitable than others.  Some do a terrific job of making guests feel welcomed, others ride out their time staring at a computer screen.  

 

Considering they are guest services staff, I haven't asked any concierge for anything outside of what I'd ask at the GS desk, so no, none has gone above and beyond.  I have seen people monopolize a concierge time and make some pretty unreasonable requests.  I think their role has a somewhat limited scope as to what they can or can't do.

It's not a waste of time if it is important and the concierge rings so they are not unnecessary calls.

The coffee machine in every DL we have been in works.

They don't always leave us a message but obviously they likely leave messages for other guests.If we ever got a call from the DL concierge I would not consider them to be time wasters and would be polite to them like I am to all cruise members.
