see above but the room was very spacious plus every day we got chocolate covered strawberries delivered as well as champagne and wine on the first day. they also provided a wine opener so no fee to open it. the baby grand piano is also cool just to have there. Read entire member review >>
Most important, the cabin steward was very good.
The room however, bad condition, furniture broken, door does not close all the way unless you really pull on it hard (otherwise it would not lock) a/c does not get very cold, coffee maker did not work, glass on coffee table was broken... Just looks very out dated, old and run down and for the largest room on the ship... NOT IMPRESSED.
***** also very very very very noisy, at all hours day and night chairs scraping from the deck above, I dont know why royal keeps putting the highest dollar rooms underneath high traffic areas... So dumb.... ***** Read entire member review >>
We got a great deal and were in the Royal Suite - it was huge with almost 1,300 square feet. Our room attendant, Anderson, was amazing. He was always around - even though, he had 8 suites to take care of. Because it is a small ship, you don't get as many perks as the bigger ships. We were invited to a special officer breakfast in Chops one morning, we jumped the line to get on the tender boat (even though, we got on the same boat as we would have if we had waited), there was special seating in the theater (but there were plenty of seats), and a few other things. The concierge lounge is nice with some different appetizers (but who needs more food?). Our problem with the room is that the Windjammer was right above us, and we couldn't sleep soundly during the night because of the cleaning that they do. The first night we inquired, and we continued to be interrupted by the security at our door to tell us what was going on and phone calls from the front desk explaining it again.

Book the Royal Suite if you plan on entertaining guests in your cabin, but I would not recommend an older ship. I'd also recommend a class of ship that include the hot tub on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
