Like being on your own private yacht. Looking where you are going is much better than looking backwards or sideways. Great views every morning coming into different ports. Slight noise from the Cabaret, not a real problem as it is slight and shows don't run late. If you want to sleep late pick another room as anchoring/docking noise could wake you up.

The Royal Suite/Club Ocean Suite (RS)7005 was comparable to a 1 BR suite in a traditional Ritz-Carlton class of property. Rooms were spacious, the balcony was fantastic, and concerns about wind across the balcony while at sea are completely dependent on wind direction across the bow. Several days the prevailing winds cancelled out the ship's motion, making these wrap-around forward-facing balconies the best at sea. Read entire member review.
Nice quiet suite well-designed with 2 large closets and bathroom with tub/shower combo. Balcony has table and 3 chairs. There is a sofa, coffee table, chair plus a desk and chair. It is located on the port side about 1/3 to 1/4 from the back if the ship.
Our suite # 8061 was on deck 8 towards the rear of the ship. The closet was very spacious and there were plenty of hangers for our 22 day cruise. The balcony was spacious with three chairs and a good sized table for meals. Being beneath the restaurant on deck 9, we could hear the occasional moving of furniture but it never disturbed our sleep. The flat screen TV was in a good location and the desk had adequate drawers.
The room was very good yes colour was outdated but everything was in working order and clean. Very nice bathroom with tub, tub needs recauking and rust is showing on metal parts (we all age). Lots of storage space and plugs were easy to access. Location was across from staff access but it did not bother us. We also could here the chair movement from above but again nothing terrible and we are early risers.
We were in a suite on deck 8 and it was clearly not worth the price. Every morning we were wakened between 6:00 and 6:30 by banging of tables and chairs in the pool deck over our heads. The gap under our door was large that hall noise disturbed us and the whistle of the wind reminded us of an Oklahoma tornado. Had to roll up a towel and shove it under the door to make the wind and hall noise acceptable. The tub was raised to high I had to shower bent over. Lighting was poor and there was only a single plug in available for curling irons or charging electronics. There were three deck chairs. Too few for company and too many for just us.
