The grand suite is a beautiful room. There are tons of youtube videos that does the room justice. the sofa bed is huge. At one time the 3 of us laid on it and there was plenty of room. I was told as a suite guest that the in room movies we would get for free. That did not happen. So beware. Read entire member review >>
Our Grand Suite was great! Love having all that space. Plenty of space to store our clothes and other belongings. Loved having the big bathroom with the tile floor and nice spacious shower/tub combo. The beds was a little on the firm side, but the attendant added a layer underneath the fitted sheet to soften it up. We loved the balcony with the table set and the lounge chairs. A great spot for sailaway. Access to the Concierge Club was a plus! Read entire member review >>

Very spacious, cabin, a waste having a bar where perhaps a table would be better. Nice having the longer balcony, also a big bathroom. The tv sound system had been updated with Bose speakers. We learned that the movies via te tv were free for suite guests. Read entire member review >>
Specifically choose this cabin as not below the solarium with its tiled floor. Had cabins under the solarium before and had to put up with constant noise through the day and night with people moving sun loungers, towel trollies at night, ladies high shoes etc. Did notice that there was a rubber walk way in the solarium now which probably reduces some of the noise.

Deck 10 is under pool and solarium. Tried for a suite under whirlpool but missed it by two suites. Fairly quiet but twice heard moving of heavy chairs early morning. Not far from bow elevator, but quiet. Long walk to concierge lounge as it's located near aft elevators. Read entire member review >>
Our grand suite was awesome. We love the space and the larger balcony. We spend a lot of time on the balcony and this means a lot to us. We did have upgraded bathroom amenities and appreciated them. There were bottles of water in our cabin when we first got there - from the Crown and Anchor Club, along with daily specials brought to our cabin i.e. chocolate covered strawberries, sliced fruit, bowl of fruit, etc. The bed was very comfortable and had plenty of storage for all our things. Our suite attendant was very good and was always responsive to any of our requests. We love the GS and always get them now on our cruises. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large enough the 3 of us + our 4 suitcases & 3 tote bags.(bags fit under the bed & on the 1 of the closet floor) There was more than enough closet space. We never did fill up all of the drawers. The bathroom is amazing for a cruise ship, with double sinks, beautiful tub/shower (handy expandable clothesline for drying bathing suits). The balcony was huge, held 2 lounge chairs plus a table with 2 side chairs and still had room to move around. Read entire member review >>
GS 1560 is spacious. Balcony has a little extra room on the aft end being near the whirlpools. The convenience to elevators, fitness center, and pool deck was nice. Two sinks, bathtub, dry bar and lots of storage. Read entire member review >>
1556 - Grand Suite - Great Room - Great Balcony - Serviced to perfection by Elena - Very quiet but some others said their suites were noisy so we may have been lucky with our neighbours. No smokers nearby so a fear we had did not materialise. Best cabin on any ship so far. Read entire member review >>
Grand Suite 1582
Very good and modern suits two adults, or two adults and two young kids, or two adults and one child, has a double that coverts to twin and a sofa bed. Looks modern has a good size verandah. One bathroom. Not suitable for more than one teenage kid sharing with adults. Good location lots of space for clothes, didn't use all of it, bar area, and fridge. Good safe. Satisfactory size bath and shower.
We also had an Inside room for kids.
Very small, compact isn't the word, only use for sleep and shower and that's even tight, kids slept there and used our room the Grand suite, wouldn't use the 1613 shower. Cant see people using these myself. Very dark kids often slept in as so dark.
No movement noticed in cabin odd noise from deck above, say running. Read entire member review >>
Grand suite. Absolutely splended, oceans of room, extensive hanging and drawer rspace, greal balcony. Very little hallway noise came in.
For some reason which I totally fail to understand this suite was priced at very little more than a standard balcony cabin - which was why we picked it.. Read entire member review >>
The Grand Suite is spacious, well organised with plenty of storage wardrobes, cupboards and drawers.The bed is enormous. with lovely fresh Egyptian Cotton daily.
Nice decor in the cabin
Fabulous view from the Balcony, and plenty of chairs and loungers on the balcony.
Very clean, and kept topped up with fresh towels and toiletries each day.
The Bose sound system was wonderful, and the TV quite large.
We were across from inside cabins, and a service room, but we never heard anything at all. Read entire member review >>
