Concierge Lounge on the Royal Princess

Suite guests sailing on Princess Cruises have several benefits accompanying their cabin category. Royal, Regal, and Majestic Princess suite passengers have an additional perk - a Concierge Lounge (VIP Lounge on the Majestic). Today we're talking about the Concierge Lounge on the Royal Princess.

If you'd rather view the video than read everything I have below, you can check it out here:

Or if you'd rather read about it instead, carry on...

On Deck 14 Aft is where you will find the Concierge Lounge.
It's shares the same foyer with the Wedding Chapel and can be accessed on both the port and starboard side.
If you happen to be wandering Deck 14 and come across these full length windows along the passenger hallways you know you're in the right spot.

Entrance requires a key card.

 The lounge is open 24 hours a day while the Concierge has set desk hours. 
What can the Concierge do for you? How about assisting with such things as shore excursions, dining reservations, and spa appointments? Need to check-in online with your airline and get your boarding passes printed? He can do that, too. 

The lounge has coffee, tea, and juices. They are serious about their coffee here.
Cappuccino, espresso, latte, double shot, milk foam and more. 
The machine also has button for decaf and hot water.

You'll also find snacks in the Lounge.
At breakfast you'll find pastries and fruit.

Other times you'll find sandwiches, wraps, cheeses, and cookies.

They do have a wash basin and antibacterial cleaner dispensers.

The description of the Concierge Lounge states it's a good place to work. I found that part not to be true. The tables are lower and not conducive to typing or writing but it is a quiet place to relax. There is plenty of seating but we never saw but a couple other guests during our visits. 

There are books and games and a couple TVs. 

Plenty of outlets were around the room in case you needed to do some charging during your Lounge stay. Might come in handy before heading off to the airport. The Concierge Lounge is also a private disembarkation lounge for suite passengers on that last morning onboard. 

Remember, the Concierge Lounge is currently only for suite passengers sailing on the Royal, Regal, and Majestic Princess.

The Friday 15

Let's see how well I did downsizing this month...

June 7:
We have a one quilt going to our neighbor's nurse. Two Princess bags being stuffed full of snacks and handed off to a crew member. Three Effy necklaces going to the same crew member - one for her, one for her momma, and one for her daughter.
One grill tray for the BBQ that hubby tossed without a picture. Air freshener plug ins, magazines, Alaska knick-knacks, and a sweater. 
June 14:
Do you ever pick things up, thinking they would be a good resource? Well, that's what I did a while back with these cruising brochures. I thought they would be helpful for folks in my cruising classes to look at. But the pricing in cruise brochures are just outrageous! So other than teaching them not to book a cruise at the listed prices the books haven't come in as handy as I thought they would. So they must go to someone else.

Then throw in some full packages of binding and lace and a big bag of miscellaneous bindings and lace and a couple pens and away goes 15 more items.

June 21:
I'm just about tapped out of things inside the house to get rid of. One last time through my bathroom, sewing room, and office drawers netted 15 more items. Hubby's not going to be happy if I start heading towards his shed next! 

June 28:
Yep, I had to raid the shed.
A saw, hammer, and an ice chest that didn't get pictures. 2 pair of shorts that went to my daughter without a picture. And a bunch of other things makes 15.
