Crowded Diamond Lounge


Recommended Posts

Does this seem counterintuitive?

 

Close the Suite lounge to pinnacles, but don’t capacity control Diamond lounge by cramming Diamond, Diamond plus, and pinnacle into one lounge. 
 

Oh well. So it goes!

Given all attending Diamond lounge have to use their vouchers inside it… unless you love that particular lounge  more than any other bar on the ship… a lot will self regulate away from diamond lounge…. There will also be reduced seats and when full you’ll be turned away

The vouchers are for all bars outside of DL. No limit to drinks inside DL.

According to Adventure - they are swiping in the lounges. So you get a certain allowed for the day.

No…. Worth reading more closely…. The new approach is all drinks in DL are using the vouchers… no more vouchers and lounge drinks too….

As someone with an official Crown and Anchor status of “loser” I want to assure everyone worried that you can have an amazing cruise without ever setting foot inside the lounge

Give it a few sailings and all these new initiatives will be applied differently on ships across the fleet anyway. Tis the RCL way. Now where did I leave my half punched coffee card............

SO TRUE. 

 

We are  "semi-loser" status  and therefore  had vouchers to use during HH .  We  enjoyed using them throughout the  ship.  Like you, we also had amazing cruises.

If they are limiting the number of people in the DL, what are they going to do now with the crowds at the Schooner Bar.   People will just shift from one to the other.

Since there is no time limit to use the  daily vouchers, there is no reason for any particular venue to be crowded at  a specified happy hour.   Plus they are accepted almost everywhere, so that will disperse the crowds. 

 

There are other times that ( as an example) Schooner bar is crowded in the later evening, particularly if there is a good  entertainer.  I guess  there will be staff at entrance(s)  to try to limit access. Has nothing to do with the  vouchers, just for good crowd control.

Me too.  I hope they remain as the new permanent polices.

 

You can't totally get rid of us. As of now we have at least 4 full suites booked😷
