It had just been partly renovated and was very nice. The bed was super comfortable! Wish it would have fit into our suitcases! Lots of storage space! The dining room table and chairs though, were disappointing in that they were huge, heavy, and difficult to get comfortable at. The table has massive leg supports that are always in the way when you fight to pull in your chair. The sofa bench by the dining room table is sort of a waste of space as it is not user friendly, has no back support, and doesn't seem to fit in with any of the rest of the room. Would prefer the L-shaped sofa like they used to have in these suites. The shower in the bathroom beats the Celebrity Suite tub hands down as both the shower and separate tub in the Royal are easy to get into as opposed to the very high tub in the Celebrity Suite. Very nice spacious bathroom overall. Read entire member review >>
The Royal Suite description: The Millennium came out of dry dock a week before we sails so we were only the 2nd group on the ship. Our room was completely redone. I have been in the Summit RS in the past so had before and after to compare. Good stuff was new furniture with leather swivel chairs in the living area, large sofa, gutted and redone bath, new bed linens, and new carpet. Bad: The 2 basins in the bath were on top of the counter which I do not like but is the current fad. Water splashed easily just brushing your teeth and there is no way to store anything on the side of the basin or to see behind where the water often went. The beds were not new and you could see them sag in the middle. The new table in the eating area was an oval versus round with 2 chairs and a bench seat along the wall so all storage was removed and this made it awkward for 2 to sit on the bench side with the curve of the table. Neutral: The balcony did not have new furniture but it was not in bad shape. Overall the redo was good but in my opinion could have been much better. We had a great room steward but our butler was just there. We did not need him much and it was obvious the people in the Penthouse 2 doors down were keeping him busy so that was fine with us as we had few needs. Read entire member review >>
Couldn't be better. Separate dining and sitting area, and separate bedroom, with access to a large veranda with a private hot tub. Great service from our butler and cabin attendant, (Sebastian & Michael). Read entire member review >>
Overall, the room was excellent. Lots of space and storage for everything. We did have issues with the heating for about 3 days and the room was close to freezing for those 3 days. I am a cold-weather person and love cruising to cold climates, but had several blankets on even during the day trying to stay warm. Read entire member review >>
AWESOME ROOM. very large. very quiet. no elevator noise to worry about even though it is close to the elevator. I also love how they dim the lights in the hallway by the suites, it's a nice touch. Read entire member review >>
Great Royal Suite with one drawback - connecting door to the Concierge Class cabin next door. The connecting door allowed a lot of noise from next door and would not book a connecting RS again because of that. Great new sunbeds and table & chairs on the balcony - definite improvement over our last stay in a RS (on Summit in 08). Read entire member review >>
