We were lucky enough to stay in the Owners Suite #1350 and were blown away! The room is spacious, has lots of storage (enough that three women didn't fill it up.) The balcony is fantastic with a small dining table and two loungers, which we used for lounging and reading. It's a very quiet room with no noise from above. Read entire member review >>
We had previously been in a Grand Suite on other Royal ships but this time we splurged with the thought that our other daughter would join us but that didn't happen so it was just the 3 of us. Overall a very nice room. We were 1 door away from the aft elevator/stair bank but it was very quiet. We were also under nothing so no chairs scraping on the pool deck! The room was very spacious and the balcony was huge with 2 doors to access it. The furniture had more signs of wear than I have seen on other ships and there was a funky black ring at the water line in the toilet. Otherwise, it was still quite clean. Lots of cabinets and storage. Nice to have separate dining table in room. Bathroom has toilet and bidet. Also has jet tub and separate stand-up shower. There was no alarm clock/radio.
Extra benefits with room: access to concierge lounge and concierge services; access to private seating in theater and pool deck; special tendering access; room service off MDR menu; Read entire member review >>
We went to our cabin 7268 on the empress deck. This cabin is very roomy, the bathroom is nice with a jacuzzi tub, nice dressing area and lots of room for clothes, etc. This cabin is located very near to the atrium and whenever anything is going on at the atrium bar you will hear it in this cabin, even with your TV on. We called on the second day and were told there were not any other cabins available in our category. The next day we were shown a balcony cabin on the 6Th floor, but declined to move, the space was more important to me than the noise. We got a phone call for the next several days asking about the noise... Yes we still hear it. Eventually they gave us a 15% discount off of our cruise and offered a 10% discount on future cruises if booked within the next year or so. I would recommend not booking this cabin or any cabin close to the atrium you will hear noise, sometimes very loud. Read entire member review >>
Owner's Suite 1334 was fantastic. Clean, lovely, spacious, in good repair. It is conveniently close to the main elevators. It is also located under the women's bathroom between the Windjammer and the pool deck above, and the flushing of toilets (a distant, misty sound, which my husband was not able to identify on his own) can be heard, especially in the bathroom. However, it's usually during the times of day when you're less likely to be in your room and does not disturb anyhow. It sounds too far away for that. And it certainly ceases nearly completely once the Windjammer closes down in the evening and the pools empty out for the night. The balcony runs the full length of the cabin. If you peak a bit over the side and look aft, you can just barely see to the back of the boat. The balcony/cabin angle a bit as they are located in the front of the hump; however, nobody not on the hump can see onto the balcony. That is a myth. A great cabin! I would definitely book it again.
