Due to the heavy sales for the Mariner on the Mexico Coast next year, is there any plans for an alternate lounge, along with the Concierge Lounge, as it is being said there are so many Diamond Members (and +) and so many more suites (larger ship) that are selling out? We've heard rumors that when there is an overflow into the Concierge Lounge, they open up an additional lounge (in the Viking Crown).
As usual, the "powers that be" took a good program and messed it up!
It seems like every cruise we take now ends up taking over the "Viking Crown" area. I think the staff does a great job and I know the company was well intentioned but it's still a mess. On a member cruise in South America we even ended up in a breakout room in the conference area. On a good note, you still get the perks, just not the way they intended.
