Several gripes. The Royal Suite is the second highest suite quality on the Ship. It is dark. There is wasted space in the design by the dining table and entrance. The porthole in the bedroom is kind of gimmicky. Some chips and scrapes in the woodwork and the furniture. But here is the worst: The cabin creaked tremendously at night. We had to call the engineers to get rid of the worst of it (they sprayed WD40 in the joints of the wall and floor by the porthole in the bedroom). At first we escaped at night to the sofa bed in the living room, then I figured out how to load a white noise machine onto my laptop and we ran that software at night. Read entire member review >>
The Royal Suite was a very nice room. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. Large balcony with a Jacuzzi to relax in. It was nice to have breakfast delivered to the room, on the 5 days we got off early at ports, for shore excursions. The afternoon snacks was delivered on a cart by the butler, and you got to pick just what you wanted. We usually got coffee and green tea to go along with them. Read entire member review >>
Has been refurbished into a noisy, uncomfortable, dungeon like atmosphere with no ambiance or style. It represents a 1960's No-Tell-Motel with the ugliest plastic furnishings available at bargain basement prices. Not up to Royal Suite Standards. My dog hangs his leash in a better environment than you charge $9000 for.. Deck also unusable, the furnishings are very cheap and extremely dangerous. The chairs are out of Alice and Wonderland and the chaise's are $29.99 "Big-Lots " special. The chairs are so light the wind pushes them all over the deck. The chaise lounge is extremely difficult to maneuver in. Twice I had to get off the chairs because my husband said they were bending Not happy! your refurbishment was a shoddy job. You didn't even take the time to fix the broken cabinets, chipped wood or the loose glass in the sliding living room door. You put nice sinks in the bathroom along with this ugly art deco glass decoration on the Jacuzzi's wall. The workers did not even check to see if it was smooth, which it was not and did have some sharp edges on it. Forgot to tell house keeping that. Awning ropes frayed on deck. During night wind one awning broke loose and was slamming against the sliding door. The butler immediately called maintenance to cut it off, which was done. Bet you a dollar with how cheep you have gotten it won't be fixed anytime soon. Lost all respect for Celebrity. They have downgraded themselves for no better reason than stock holders profit. I have steadily watched your down grading since 1982. We have stayed loyal but you are pushing us to hard to change shipping lines. I am diligently going to be looking into real luxury lines. That is what We want in a cruise and apparently this is not you any longer Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 6140 a Royal Suite and our first in that category. The cabin exceeded our expectations for roominess, storage, and the possibility of sitting in a Jacuzzi on the balcony. An experience i was thrilled to try. The dining room made eating in a joy. While we had a nice table on the balcony it was often too hot after the sun came up to eat there. The furniture was in good shape as well as the carpet.There was a picture in the bathroom that I learned later was a night light. The bathroom had a stale odor at times and couple of moments the last day it smelled sewer like. I learned later this is easily remedied. There was a large empty wall where a picture hangs in other cabins. Probably because of the jacuzzi the lights out there are bright, when the neighbors are turned on I could read by it in the middle of the night, by there light alone. We asked if another less bright option could be provided or if one of the lights could be disabled. None of these options were workable so on day four our butler began by taping a towel over the bedroom porthole, taping the curtains to the wall and taking the bed cover and taping to the bottom on the curtains. This completely blacked out the light although it was unsightly, and it was taken down after the second evening of use. Usually light does not bother me, but this was so bright i thought is was midmorning each time that light was turned on.The room seemed completely sound proof from our neighbors. Due to the light however, I might try one adjacent to a different cabin category next time.We had access to Michael’s Club which is beautiful room with private premium bar and intimate entertainment and presentations. We enjoyed it very much. Read entire member review >>
Royal Suite - Cabin 6140
All facets of this cabin were outstanding with the exception of the number of US standard electrical outlets - none in Suite LR/Dining area. 2 in Suite Bedroom and found 1 in cabinet beneath Suite Bedroom TV console when packing for disembarkation. Read entire member review >>
The Royal Suite was nicely appointed as expected with a grand deck with a Jacuzzi, deck loungers, and table/4 chairs. It had a door to the living room and a door to the bedroom. Inside the cabin, the dining room had a nice round table/4 chairs and bar area where 1 litre of Vodka/Scotch/mixers were provided as well as 2 litres of bottle water. the mini fridge was filled also. The living room was spacious and had a full size sofa sleeper and love seat and chair. Large flat screen TV hung on the wall and there were many cupboards throughout room for storage. The computer workstation had a chair, but Celebrity has removed the computer for some reason...wish they had not.
The bedroom was large with a separate well lit make-up/vanity area next to the deck door allowing natural light in by pulling back the curtains. Next to the bed was a porthole looking out onto the deck and overlooking the jacuzzi, the nice feature of this porthole was the automatic operating curtain the would lower/raise with the push of a button. The bathroom was large with marble surfaces throughout, two sinks, a high-tech jacuzzi tub, separate shower with glass doors and plenty of storage areas. the walk-in closet was a nice size with plenty of storage, but was smaller when compared to a closet in the same cabin class as on the century ship...matter of fact the Royal Suite on Century seemed bigger overall compared to this suite but Summit included the tub on the deck and nicer tub in the bathroom.

Very large main dining/living room, small bedroom, and lots and lots of closet space. Cannot believe the condition the furnishings were in. All dirty and mold on carpeting and drapes. Very disappointing. Read entire member review >>
Royal Suite 6138. Walk in closet. Plenty of storage space, great location on the ship, not far from AFT elevators, quiet. Best Butler KEITH!!!
Two sofa's and a chair in the living room. One is a sleeper. Read entire member review >>
Balcony whirlpool was a bit tired looking. Jacuzzi in bathroom was hard to operate. CD player was nice, but didn't bring any to use! DVD library is unimpressive. Mini frig wasn't too cool. Doorbell sounded painful! Super cold air conditioning! Read entire member review >>
