Full suite (Vista) on the Caribe deck (10) was not a lot bigger than the junior suites on the Allure of the Seas and other RCI ships. 'Obstructed view'from a 'support beam' blocks a little of the view from one of the two sliding glass doors, however the beam is actually 2-3 feet wide and significantly restricts the use of the balcony. Bathroom is beautifully appointed, with with a lovely glass shower and separate Jacuzzi bathtub with room for 1 person, and Lotus spa toiletries and other products Other amenities: refrigerator, complimentary one time mini bar set-up (airline size bottles of liquor and sodas, beer and bottled waters-spring and carbonated in the refrigerator), fresh fruit every day, beautiful flowers that lasted the entire cruise, complimentary hors d'oeuvres every night brought to our stateroom (a card is provided daily to complete your selection of hors d'oeuvres), full room service menu (whatever is being served in the dining rooms each day), dinner reservations arranged each day (they actually call every morning to arrange the reservations). Suite is on the fantail, which means more noise from the wake of the ship when the sliding doors are open, but is like 'white noise'.  Read entire member review.
Our full-suite cabin was awesome. As you entered the suite, you had the choice of turning left into the washroom or go straight into the living room area. If you entered the washroom, you could exit the other side and be in the shower (and separate jetted tub) area. Continue through and you will end up in the sleeping area. From the living room, you can also enter the sleeping area. Both the living room and sleeping area have their own televisions and their own sliding glass doors to access the veranda. There is more than ample drawer space and a very large (for a cruise ship) walk-in closet. The safe in the suite was larger than that found in our mini-suite last cruise. There is a vanity in the sleeping area, as well, with mirrors strategically placed to allow full view of your back as well as your front (ladies, you will appreciate this) and there is a full-length mirror, as well. The veranda is large enough for a table-for-two, two chaise lounges and an end table. We chose a suite on the aft of the ship... and we chose the same location for the next cruise! There is no opportunity for others to see into your balcony and you have no obstructions looking toward the sea! We never used the heat or air in the cabin but slept each night with both sliding doors open to listen to the ocean and to be awakened by the rising sun. By far, the aft cabin is the best of all we have tried (we have been midships and forward). We will continue to book aft cabins in the future; truly the best location on the ship!  Read entire member review.
Somewhat small closet space. Absolutely outstanding balcony.  Read entire member review.
Great suite, closet ample for 31 days, suite is private with one common wall. private hallway outside the door that isnt used. in back of the ship and no foot traffic at all.. very very pleasant.  Read entire member review.
Loved our suite! Our first suite. Steps up into the two room bathroom. "Walk in closet" smaller than "walk in closet" in Mini-suites we've stayed in aboard Voyager Class, also awkward. Lots of drawers! Tub needs more grab bars. Only one grab bar toward the back of the tub. Separate shower with ornate grab bar. Huge pole in balcony, but didn't obscure view. I'd hoped to use it to mount my GorillaPod, but couldn't be done. Bed lamps are dimmer lamps (Excellent feature) that actually dim enough so they can act as nightlights. Limited outlets. We had to unplug one thing to plug in the other and our three way plug wouldn't fit. Beds made our backs sore despite the cabin steward's best efforts to improve them with egg crates.  Read entire member review.
