Will temporary paper sea pass open diamond or concierge lounge on Anthem

Probably not. Your access is coded on the magnetic strip on your seapass card.

 

While the answer no is correct, there is no magnetic stripe on Anthems seapass cards, as they use embeded RFID chips.

 

To the OP: You can always try and knock on the door to see if someone will open it for you.

Also could try to enter the D lounge by the door that leads directly to the Music Hall lounge if the main entry door is locked. Often that side door is left unlocked as it doesn't have a RFID pad.

Would love to get a cappuccino and hang out before cabins are open and we get our actual sea pass.

You can try to unlock by sliding the paper in between lock and door frame....:classic_biggrin:

Yes.  It started with the Quantum class and has now moved to many ships in the past 6 months or so.

On Mariner last week the diamond lounge door was propped open at noon when I boarded. I need my card to enter for happy hour.

Yes, on the Anthem you will use your printed ( BARCODED ) Set Sail Pass for drinks or whatever UNTIL the staterooms are ready and then you will find your Seapass CARDS in an envelope by you Stateroom door.

No, it will not. In all of my Anthem cruises, I only had success once. The Diamond Concierge was at his desk, I knocked on the door, we made eye contact, and he begrudgingly let me in. 😉

We also use the back door.  Approximately  10 times we have found it unlocked.  We’ve not had luck at the concierge lounge even after the long walk back there.

If you have a wow band you can exchange it for one that works on anthem during embarkation and it’ll open the door before you get your seapass. If you don’t have a wow band, you can purchase one.

We went to the DL on our trip in Oct on Anthem after we boarded.  Someone let us in, but the back door that opens to the Music Hall was unlocked/open so others were able to get in that way.

As others have said:

 

1. The paper set sail pass will NOT let you into the CL if no concierge is on duty. I tried that in August. Nope.😁

 

of course, if the concierge is on duty, your set sail shows your eligibility. But by that time,    you’ll probably have the plastic......
