I haven't stayed in concierge, but I did tour the rooms and facilities. Worth it is always a personal choice. The Dream and Fantasy's concierge decks are key-controlled, so celebrities and the like may find that alone is worth the price. The room decor is more luxurious-looking, and the Cat. V rooms (equivalent to Cat 4) are a bit larger, too. The concierge team will give you extra pampering, but whether the added fare is worth the cost of an occasional complimentary bottle of wine is questionable. The private concierge lounge, the private sun deck... it's a matter of whether you like the idea of it - you'll still have to leave those enclaves to use the pools, go to dinner, etc. Since room service is complimentary everywhere, the fruit and wine and cheese platters you'll find in your room may not seem quite as magical as they would at a resort where food normally costs extra. Basically, it's not something I'm likely to pay for, unless I go from guidebook author to TV/movie star. If there's little difference in cost, like $25/person/day? It's definitely worth considering.

We cruised in a suite on the Magic for our honeymoon and it was great. It was our first cruise and we didn't really consider the finances, we decided to go big for our honeymoon and first cruise.
The room was insane and large and luxurious, I loved the jacuzzi tub. Our concierge was nice, we went to the welcome reception and she would put special notes in our door, drop off snacks in the afternoon, we had breakfast in bed one day, and we got a really pretty Cinderella lithograph. There are perks, and i'm sure on the Fantasy and Dream it's even more amazing. Dave already outlined those goodies. I was surprised to see the gate separating the concierge level rooms. Oh geez...if we hear about Dave plugging his own TV show we'll know he's trying to work his way to concierge level! He'll stop wearing his Passporter Pouch and won't speak to anyone!
