Diamond Club Lounge - Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas

Diamond Club - another great addition to the revitalized Legend of the Seas.  This is a private lounge for Crown and Anchor, Diamond and above members.  There is also a Concierge Lounge, for suite guests and for Crown and Anchor Diamond Plus and above members.

Inside the Diamond Club lounge in the morning, during breakfast hours.  On this sailing, the Diamond Concierge said that there were fewer than 50 Diamonds on board.  The lounge was usually very quiet.

 We loved the coffee machine in the Diamond Lounge.

Juices in the morning.

Breakfast selection.  Hot food was not available.   However, the Diamond Club is located fairly near the Park Cafe.  On more than a few occasions, we grabbed food from the Park Cafe and brought it into the Club to eat.

A nice view of the lounge which was very quiet on our sailing.

This was the Diamond Concierge Desk.  The Diamond Concierge was Andrew Finegold.  He was a very helpful chap.

Another view.

Breakfast offerings, all cold stuff.

Breads at breakfast. There was also a toaster.

Diamond Club - hot food selection during evening hours.  The finger food was good!

Checking out the food.  The chicken wings were great.

Evening hours, cocktail selection.  The bartender would be able to mix any drink you wanted from this set of drinks. They had three types of beers to choose from, including Miller Lite, Heineken and one more that I can't remember.

They had a house red, house white and champagne.

Hot food selection.

Bartender at work.

I had a Miller Lite almost every day.

I found that the beer went very well with the hot finger food.

This was a mixed drink, Cranberry Vodka.

I think this was a Bourbon Coke.

This was taken during the afternoon, after breakfast hours but before evening cocktails.  Notice no food in the warmers.

 Back to our favorite coffee machine!  Awesome stuff.

Another look.  They had takeaway cups, very useful to pop in, get a drink, and move on.

 Overall, our Legend of the Seas March cruise was greatly enhanced by the Diamond Club access, thanks to our newly minted Crown and Anchor Diamond status.  It also helped that the lounge was very quiet, as there were very few Diamonds on board this Asian sailing.

Celebrity Cruises Elite Social Hour and Morning Coffee
In case you are not aware, Celebrity Cruises (sister company of Royal Caribbean) offers reciprocal recognition such that C&A Diamonds will be recognized as Elite members when you sail on Celebrity.  

Check out some pictures of the social hour and morning coffee perks as Elite members.

Safe travels!
