Default AOS Junior Suite - Perks?

We are sailing on AOS in October, and have bit the bullet and booked a JS. Seemed to me I read smewher (of course I can't remember where) that holders of this type of cabin have some perks, like a separate check in, and a lounge that is otherwise restricted.

Can anybody comment on that, or was it just wishful thinking and my dementia kicking in again.

Thanks in advance,

Sid1962

You do get priority check-in at the line for suites but no access to the lounge during the cruise. But you do get 2 cruise credits for the voyage by being in a "JS."

The two cruise credits is nice; you will be able to reach the next level quicker; you do have a larger room and baclony than a normal D-1 stateroom. I had a junior suite last year and loved it.

Cruise credits are part of the cruislines loyalty program. The same as airline loyalty programs. On your first sail with Royal Caribbean you can join the Crown and Anchor Club. Crown and Anchor is Royal Caribbean's loyalty club. After your first cruise you get one cruise credit. When you reach five cruise credits you advance to the next level, after ten cruises, the next level. At every level you will receive more perks; like discounted cabins; discounts onboard ship, etc. For each cruise you receive one cruise credit; however if you book a suite, junior, grand, or owners suite you will receive two cruise credits; thus making advancement to the next level quicker.

THANKS for explaining this!

We did have a suite on our cruise and this next one in 2010 we have booked a Jr that connects to a Grand. So that will be 4 more credits???

We also joined the Crown and Anchor club.

12 nights or longer =one credit

Maxes out at three allowable but it beats a kick in the rear!

Default Priority Check in?

How does that work?

Is there a separate line for suites?

Are suites called separately?

How will we know.

Thanks,

When you arrive at the pier, ask where the check in is for suite guests. There will be someone there that will show you where to go.

You will check in, have your Sign and Sail card made, picture taken (if you so wish) and board the ship.

Just be sure to ask where to go, otherwise you'll be standing in line with everyone else.

Would that be considered VIP check in...can you just look for VIP check in? Or do you have to ask? I would think that there would be signs for VIP check in..I'd hate to stand in line because there are no signs for VIP check in.

Yes it's VIP check in.

There are signs but when we were looking for them when we sailed last they were hard to see, so we asked and a lady lead us right up to the counter.

No need to stress over it, you'll find your way one way or another.

I got my tastesof the perks of being a Diamond member two years ago on Mariner and I really enjoyed them. I just showed one of the reps my documents saying Diamond on them and me and my friend and I were taken out of line and wisked to the priority check in. Now don't get me i'ts not that I think of myself as ''all that and a bag of chips'' I just loved being able to get on this beautiful ship as quick as possible after all the months of planning and dreaming I'm booked this Oct 19 on Freedom and can't wait. I have a balcony room but will one day go for the JS. I thought if you booked a JS that you have access to the concierge lounge no matter what your crown and ancor ranking In any case have agreat trip!
