I guess I don't see a major problem with the Concierge lounge being used, as it was originally designed for, suite passengers.Take care,

If it had stayed as a suite perk only I would completely agree with you. However, the problem is RCL extended the invite to D/D+. Based on that many people used that as a deciding factor when all else was equal.

Now, down the road, RCL has decided to take it away (along with a long list of perks) and expect D's to say OK - we'll accept that. Human nature being what it is - that just isn't going to happen without a whimper.
