6178 is a grand suite. It's large. I love the dressing area with the sink, the double sink in the bathroom and the big balcony, but it was in terrible condition. The rug is in dire need of replacement. It is worn and has many visible stains. I can't speak to the other suites, but this one was not "luxurious" - oh and note there is still only one electrical outlet even in this huge room. They would be better serving the passengers if they did away with the bidet and put in a small shower. The whirlpool bath tub is really difficult to get into. In fact, they've placed one of those "exercise" steps in front of the tub to help. Read entire member review.
Cabin - We had cabin 6182 on this particular trip which was a Handicap Grande Suite, which differs slightly from the normal GS cabins, but only slightly. The main differences we could find were an electronic door (swings open when card is swiped, AWESOME), a ramp to get out to the balcony and the biggest differences in the bathroom. A single sink instead of a double, the bidet is removed and a wheel chair accessible shower is added which is quite large and more than adequate for couples who like to shower together. The room itself was enormous compared to most cabins on board. Plenty of room to entertain if you have a group of 20+ for any type of gathering. King bed, still only 1 outlet, mini bar and fridge. The balcony has 2 loungers, 2 chairs and a table and plenty of room to spare with good views. The most annoying and frustrating thing to mention is the ship received new TV's in dry dock, replacing the old CRT tvs with flat panel tvs which is a welcome addition.........HOWEVER, it is mounted to the wall........without a swivel mount. That's right it moves 1" or so in each direction, so if you plan to watch TV or movies in bed or the couch on your trip, you better bring your own (PPE = Piss Poor Engineering).
We ran into another issue where we had water dripping/seeping from the A/C vent over the toilet and over the bed. Dealt with the issue over 4 days. Each time we were told it was fixed, it was not. To the point the bed actually needed to be moved one night. We could not switch cabins as the ship was full. In closing though, minus the water leak and TV, the room was actually pretty great.

We were in the Grand Suite. Plenty of storage and a king size bed. The bathroom had two sinks and a whirlpool tub and shower. The tub was 30 inches high so a person with a bad hip or a bad knee might have problems getting into the tub. The balcony was huge with two recliners two chairs and a table Read entire member review.
