My wife and I did enjoy enjoy the extra space provided by this quiet suite. We stored our suitcases under the bed. This grand suite had a nice balcony, a living room, two vanity areas, three large closets and a large bathroom which includes a bidet plus a jacuzzi with shower. Our only complaint was the shower. To take a shower, we had to step (or leap) over the side of the jacuzzi. Twenty years ago that would have been no problem, however for two people in their late 60s, it was an issue. The other issue was price. Is the suite worth the extra money, probably not. But at our age, we enjoy the extra space and the balcony views.
We had cabin 7307 (Grand Suite)
We loved the roominess. It fit our family of four perfectly. The balcony was o.k., but it was not over the water. Our balcony was just left and over a jacuzzi on deck 5. Our balcony was not private since the people on deck 5 could see us and we could see and hear them as well. We had sailed on 7 cruises with balconies and have never had a balcony overlook another deck so we were unaware to even request a room overlooking the water (we thought they all did except for the boardwalk and central park balconies on the Oasis).
The actual room was perfect. 3 closets, lots of drawers, big bathroom with tub/jacuzzi, two sinks in the bathroom and 1 sink in the dressing area.

GS 7321, Lots of closets (3), large bathroom and separate dressing room with sink! Lots of seating for other family members. HATED HATED the balcony! This balcony overlooks the Lanai hot tubs, the noise is awful all day long. No privacy at all there, I usually like to spend a few hours reading and unwinding not on this balcony.
We booked a Grand Suite a year out to celebrate 20 years of marriage. Initial response when we got to the cabin is that is was small for what we expected. Tons of storage space - almost too much! We were mid ship. The door leading out to the balcony was unreal. I could barely open it. It is super heavy, and SLAMS to close. When we first boarded, all I kept hearing were the darn balcony doors slamming. Would've been nice to have sliding doors, like on other ships. The balcony itself was quite large. Two chairs and a lounging chair. The closet door closest to the bed rattled quite a bit. When we opened it, it stopped rattling, but then the light inside turned on. We couldn't figure out how to turn the light off. So, it was either listen to the rattle all night, or, sleep with the light on. Frustrating. Read entire member review.
