A suite that doesn't have a separate bedroom isn't a suite. Many glass fronted cupboards that you felt once-upon-a-time might have held glasses, cocktail shakers or whatever.
Slightly faded but spacious. A single cabin attendant had to deal with everything. He was good but looked tired.
Air conditioning could have been quieter. Read entire member review >>
Lovely. The suite was huge, massive bed and enough storage, even for my wife! You could cruise for a month and have enough space for everything, there are cupboards and drawers everywhere.
The cabin has a dining area for 4 people as well as the sleeping and sitting areas so makes it much easier to eat in the room without having to use the bed or sofa. The main sleeping area is blocked off by means of a heavy curtain, so you get visual privacy but it obviously it doesn't stop noise. You can also access the balcony via the bedroom area as well as the main lounge; handy is someone is sleeping in the main area. Our 5 year old was on a rollaway bed and we hoped that we could place it in the bedroom area, but this was not possible, it is too big (the bed), so it was left in the dining area, it worked fine, but if you need it in the bedroom, it don't fit!
The stateroom attendant was brill (Raj) he looks after all your needs and makes up the beds / turn down and all the usual cleaning etc. Also it is nice to come back at bedtime to find chocolates, beds ready and the bathroom all cleaned up with fresh towels whilst you have been at dinner. Of course the towel animals was our son's fav bit!
On the balcony you get 2 chairs and 2 sun loungers with cushions and a table, the balcony is basically 3 times the size of a standard balcony cabin. From a safety point of view we were concerned about our little one out on the balcony and whilst we didn't allow him out there alone, the glass panel is high and not easy to climb, so it is safe. There is also a reasonable size safe in a cupboard for highly valuable things but we didn't bother for most stuff.
Plug sockets are mainly western Europe type so a normal 2 round pin adaptor is fine. There are several so unless you bring loads of devices that need charging an extension is not necessary but that also works. You don't need a charger for an Apple Ipod touch etc. as the radio has a dock to charge / use.
Suite guests get access to the concierge lounge (on deck 10 by the lifts) a real bonus. It isn't huge and can be busy just before dinner, but we always got seats for our group of 4. They do continental breakfast (we never used that), light snacks / cakes in the afternoon and canapes in the evening (5 to 8.30.) The main benefit is in the evening you get free drinks. The lounge is open 24/7 for coffee / tea when you just help yourself.
Kenneth and his team are in the lounge at key times and they are really helpful. Ken is able to book all you trips / reservations so there is no need to go to guest services and queue up. Read entire member review >>
Cosets were spacious. Room was well appointed and had lots of space for "living" and storage. The bathroom was large with a shower, tub/jacuzzi, bidet and two sinks. There is a table and bar/counter with a refrigerator. Plastic flowers. Door bell. Very comfortable bed! Balcony spacious. Read entire member review >>
