Is concierge class worth the extra$
 
Can anyone tell me from past experience if the concierge class is worth the extra money?

My personal opinion is that it's not worth the extra $. I don't think the extra amenities truly equal the extra cost, and the difference in space is negligible.

Extra cost
 
If it is on a longer than a week cruise I would say YES.. only turned CC class down once and I noticed the difference in service and extras.. Yes, I like the flowers on the desk, yes, I like the rose in the bathroom, Yes, I like the little extras. One day I had a problem trying to cancel an appt. and I went down to the CC desk and they did it for me. For me it's the extra touches, then again the first time we were offered CC it was for $50.00 more. Just call Parrot Mom a spoiled cruiser (no, haven't had a butler year)

Thanks for the response and on the Feb. 1st departure on Century the Concierge class is less expensive than a balcony stateroom.

Well.. if it's LESS then it's definitely worth it. ROFL

Hi Kimstew47:

I definitely think the cost for CC is worth every penny. Of all the Celebrity cruises I have been on, have only once sailed in a non-CC cabin. Perhaps it's a subjective thing, but I enjoy being pampered more and the CC cabins we stay in, have larger verandas and slightly larger staterooms.

I think it depends on just how much extra the difference is. Seems to me that CC used to be an extra $300 to $400 p.p. which I wouldn't pay. But we paid $150 p.p. on our recent Mercury cruise and for us it was worth every penny! The flowers,appetizers (not really all that bad:rolleyes:)bathroom amenities,huge balcony. But the best was priority debarkation-we were among the first off. Or was that a Captain Clubs perk? I'm confused.

Kuki,

I agree with you about the few extra amenities of concierge class are not worth all that much. While each of us would equate a different value for a CC cabin over a regular balcony cabin, I do feel that the CC cabins are worth an extra $50 pp, but not anything more.

If the CC cabins are less than the balcony cabins and the price is less than other mainstream cruise lines, it might be a good deal.

To me it's worth the extra cost. When I cruise on Celebrity I allways book cocierge class.
