Default Diamond Club vs. Concierge Club
We have booked a GS for our upcoming cruise on the Allure. I noticed the two clubs are different, the Diamond Club on deck 6 overlooking the Promenade and the Concierge Club on deck 11. As guests booked in a GS but not yet a Diamond level we have access to the Concierge Club only?

That is correct. You can only go to the Concierge Lounge. Amenity-wise it is the better of the two. The Concierge Lounge serves full breakfasts and has a lunch menu too. You can't get that in the Diamond Lounge. I think I ate breakfast there 5 out of 7 mornings on our Oasis cruise a few months ago.

The evening cocktail hours are the same in both lounges.

Here is my order one morning. This is for one person, the 'ultimate' breakfast or something like that. Lox, bagel, fruit, muesli, omelet, bacon, hashbrown potatoes.

Dave, thank you once again for answering another one of my questions.

We look forward to the cruise and the amenitites that come with the GS.

Dexter Fraser should be one of the suite concierges from 9/29 through the end of the year. He is outstanding and a charming man. Very gracious host. Sonny V knows him personally. You'll be getting an e-mail from the concierge before your cruise starts.

Question Different "Clubs"
Dave, I have access to both coming up. I understand that Diamond club does not have food, but do both have the same set-up for drinks (cocktails)? No charge, except a tip for the bartender, in Concierge; Diamond Club the same, and snacks (Hoover-Doovers my Dad used to call them)?

Drinks and snacks are the same at the cocktail hours in both lounges. Diamond Lounge can get noisy since it is open to the promenade, but they usually have to use an overflow area to accommodate everyone, and that is normally in the Blaze nightclub on deck 4.

Talking Clubs
We're on Brilliance this fall, and both are up in the Viking Crown lounge area. From past cruises on Radience, I don't expect the area to be very large. Concierge used to be on deck 10 before both ships were re-done, and now the old area is another larger-sized cabin.
Looking forward to either any way it comes.

Hi Jim,
I think on this cruise most likely they will turn Singapore Slings on deck 6 into the Diamond Club. This cruise is known for attracting a lot of D's & D+ cruisers. I would not be surprised to have at least 500 onboard. This is the norm on Transatlantic's and from speaking to people on CC, that has been the case the last 2 years. It makes for a very festive atmosphere.

We normally don't book excursions through the ship,especially in the caribbean, but we just booked the Mi Dushi in Aruba. Took it a couple years back and really enjoyed it.
