We consider this cabin our home, all three cruises on Grandeur have been in this room and it will be the only one if we are able to make the reservation at the right time. Would hate to think of going to another cabin unless we really have to. The cabin itself is nice, I know that it is bigger in size then other cabins because it is a suite. It has more then ample space for us which is also helpful because we can put our luggage away so it does not take up space - we usually set them right behind the sofa.
The cabin also has a nice bathroom, which is equipped with a tub and shower so you can take a bath if you prefer. It also has all the supplies such as conditioner, body lotion, etc. I know the towels are an upgrade because of staying in the suite.
This is the only way we will cruise, it is something that we started on our first cruise which we took to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very big with more storage than we needed. Lots of mirrors.The lighting was great. The bathroom huge with a double sink and lots of storage. Tub/ shower had soap dispenser which we did not use. Lots of t-paper and tissues provided. I asked for and got 4-6 towels a day. Suite had a coffee maker with Starbucks, a tea pot, refrigerator stocked with snacks and sodas and water, DVD player and hair dryer as well as a safe. The lighted vanity had a big magnifier mirror. The bed was very comfortable and we could control our own heat/cool for the suite. We had a sofa, 2 chairs, ottoman and a big coffee table. One entire wall was window. You can't go wrong with Dennis the attendant! Really friendly and effecient. Read entire member review >>
Our suite was lovely. Plenty of storage and overall room. Our Stewart was wonderful. Always had the room clean and neat even with our popping in and out at odd times. The bed could have been more comfortable and being below the Windjammer it was a bit noisy with the chairs being moved at different times. Bring a bath mat, the tub is slippery.

The room is excellently appointed, it's the amount of space of 2 regular cabins. There is a queen bed with a curtain at the end that offers some seclusion from the rest of the cabin. The living room area is quite large, we moved the coffee table to the side and had more than ample space for my son's travel toddler bed with room to spare. The sofa was fine, it was noisy when you moved on it but it was firm and adequate for the trip. The balcony was lovely, there were 2 deck chairs and a nice table with 3 wicker-type chairs; much nicer than the standard balcony furniture. There was tons of storage, 3 large closets with drawers and shelves and plenty of space for all of our hanging clothes and our luggage, 8 drawers in the bar area, 2 drawers in each bedside table, 5 drawers in the desk, 3 drawers and 2 cabinets in the bathroom and storage in the little entertainment center. The tv seemed to be a better quality that ones we've had in other rooms on the grandeur, the detail still isn't great, it's difficult to read the speed on the "where are we channel" but it was alright. The room also had a control panel by the door for all of the lights in the room. You could turn them on individually there and dim them so you had just the right amount of light, it was super convenient. You are towards the front of the ship so it gets quite rocky in rough seas. It's right under the coke machines in the Windjammer which works out well, you're not under dining tables in the Windjammer or pool chairs on the pool deck so you don't have the chair scraping noise all day and night. The downside is you could quite clearly hear them rolling carts of I suspect dishes until around midnight each night. It's also across the hall from the staff door/stairwell so there is a lot of in and out there and clanking of dishes. All in all it was a splendid room and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again.

The Grand Suite was wonderful and quiet. Very uncomfortable furniture with no back support. Could not watch television from the sofa. We found furniture in the Junior Suites on other Vision Class ships much better. They painted our balcony railing which meant I could no longer attach our gorillapod to the railing for long exposure pictures. One of the cabin supervisors examined our bathroom, and told me to always wear shoes or slippers because I could pick up all sorts of germs off the floors. Made wonder if they don’t clean as well as they might. This was our third full suite! The floor plan was better than our Sky Suite on Century. But we liked the floor plan on the Sapphire Princess a lot better. Like the Sapphire Princess, the Grandeur offered a special suite breakfast in one of the specialty dining rooms. We also had access to the Concierge Lounge. The Sapphire Princess got us into the Platinum and up nightly reception, while the Sky Suite on Century offered us afternoon tea brought to our cabin, cappuccinos and the services of a superb butler. Our concierge contacted us the week prior to our cruise and we spoke with him on the phone with some shore excursion questions. The marvelous way he handled our disembarkation was the best we've had in over 20 cruises! We met in the concierge lounge, and he called us to the elevator and brought us directly down to deck one without any intermediate stops. Read entire member review >>
In addition, our room attendant was great. Our room was always clean and he never disturbed us, always knowing when we were gone. Once we asked him not to use bleach, because of the odor and it never happened again. Could no have asked for anything more. Read entire member review >>
The air conditioning in our suite did not work properly for most of the trip. Although they came and "fixed it", it still didn't work. Temps in the high 70's during the day with the AC on. Other than that, a great room. Plenty of space for three people (2 adults, 1 teen girl). Read entire member review >>
