Is a Pinnacle member in a Suite referred to as a Pinnacle +, a Suite P, or just My Lord and My Lady?

 

 

I'm guessing you or @John&LaLa  know the proper term.

A Pinnacle is a Pinnacle no matter what cabin they are in. Contrary to what some think, I don’t have an issue with Pinnacle’s as a group. I have suggested, on some ships/cruises/dates, that Royal provide an exclusive area just for Pinnacles.

I often get called Sir John. I think it's weird.

 

On our last cruise, my cruise card indicated Star Class, Pinnacle Member, and Prime for casino. It was a trifecta of ass kissing 🤣🤣

 

Only time I've ever worn a lanyard.😉

What color SeaPass did you choose?

Don't you think there be many Ds, and D+  that already book suites?  Hmmm ...? 

 

No doubt. That's why I said 'some'. In fact, I'm thinking there are more D & D+ have Suites booked in 2021 than there were in 2019 or 2020.  It appears the fear of being quarantined in your cabin is real. As a result, Suites are going at a premium.

Communism? 
 
You know the guy who rang me up at Staples was studying an economics book.  He is getting his second masters.  Glad I am not entering the job market now. 
 
I would book a suite if I had more income, can they not take my word for it and reward me based on what I would do if I could?
Even in communism, the ruling party is more equal than others. Every socialist and communist nation in the world!, the ruling party is more equal than the plebes

Leadership gets better everything compared to the commoners. Though their philosophy tends to say there is no class divide and everyone is equal.

If the lounges are open when cruising resumes I'm curious about how Social Distancing will be handled? And will it be the responsibility of the Concierge to enforce it? 

The enforcement issue is the more difficult one.

 

Pre-COVID, the concierge did little to enforce rules like...

 

1. Dress Code (no shorts)

2. No taking of drinks from lounge (it used to be fun watching folks fill their coffee cups with booze before leaving.

3. Bringing friends into the lounge

 

It's hard to imagine they will begin to enforce rules Post-COVID

Ive honestly never noticed people sneaking friends into any lounge.

Have you ever seen a concierge ask to see a sea pass card?  They simply assume if you can get in you must belong.

 

We had one excellent concierge who checked cards every night.  On occasion, on another ship, there would sometimes be monitors at the doors of the lounge, but that was the exception to the rule.

This.

It takes a serious asshat or perhaps someone(s) in a liquidated state of mind to 'sneak' into a lounge or anywhere really unless you're a college aged kid. I've actually been invited to D & above events by another guest w/ the approval of the concierge. I imagine if a concierge is at the door checking seapasses, there is an over abundance of D's in a very crowded DL trying to find comfort space or an overly crowded CL w/ no room to spare.

I never even stop to pay attention who is walking through the door. Don't care. Not my resonsibility nor my form of entertainment. Especially #2... why do this? Why care? I'm there only to liquidate, learn from others, and enjoy my cruise, my day.

Well of course, but I've also seen other staff doing that. But just as many times I've seen no one doing it. I don't immediately assume nefarious behavior.  Maybe they'll just scan your card for each drink instead

It was Black,  or a really dark plum. 

Didn't think of asking for any other color

So you choose to use the Suite (STAR) SeaPass over the White Pinnacle SeaPass. My brother does the same. STAR Class is the one confirmed level that trumps a Pinnacle, in most cases.

The Concierge has access to passenger names/photos. Most are amazingly good with knowing who you are and if you belong in the lounge.

I am quite sure Domino D was making a joke.  😉 

Thank you @island lady for your help, but there is a part of me who wants hear "And we have 20 Suite P's on board this cruise" at the top tier event.

See John, why would I even think I should get on the tender ahead of you?  My last Sea Pass Card said Doesn't Drink, Doesn't Gamble, Books 3rd Party Excursions. 

 

I'm guessing you and Laura don't get assigned a muster station, the Captain tracks your location from the bridge and comes to get you personally if anything happens.  And I for one have no problem with that.

Laura would like that 

 

FWIW, the Star experience was wasted on us

Who cares?  Well, I guess you do.

 

We gave up on the "top tier" event ages ago except when it is held in the Aqua Theater with a diving exhibition.

Well..... Yes.  When I said I would like to hear them say Suite P's at the Top Tier Party, that's what I meant.  So yes in that regard I care.  I think self realization of what the sole truly likes is central to a happy life.  I am very happy that you have found peace in not attending the top tier party.  I feel the same way about Saunas.  Who cares.  I gave up on them years ago.   Only difference is I wouldn't go in a sauna even if it was at the Aqua Theater.   

 

I hope we are soon cruising and getting to do what we love. You skipping the top tier party and me not going to the sauna.

I actually know Pinnacle’s that stay in Suites. I guess you could say they are indeed Suite (Sweet) P’s. 😇
