Our grand suite had 355 square feet with a 119-square-foot balcony (which is my favorite location on the ship). The balcony has a table, two chairs and a comfortable lounge. There was more storage and drawers in the room than we could use, however storage and shelves in the bathroom were sorely lacking.
We enjoyed the Grand Suite along with the perks that accompany it. Breakfast, lunch and dinner menus available for in-suite dining, exclusive breakfast in the Compass Deli, complementary drinks and snacks in the Viking Crown Lounge each evening 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm. and reserved seating for the main theater. We bypassed three-hundred passengers standing in line for the tender boats to Cocoa Cay and we were driven to a private pavilion on the island for an open bar and upscale lunch with officers.

The grand suite was nice and had lots of room to move around in, plenty of storage and a good size bed. The room attendant did a good job of keeping the room clean and stocked with towels and was very friendly. The bathroom while bigger than other rooms was a little on the small side with a single sink etc. Please note if you are a light sleeper this may not be the room for you. We did hear a lot of noise from the restaurant above all day and most of the night. We use a fan app on our tablet so most of it was muffled out but without the fan noise we would have slept very little. The balcony was very large with a lot of unused space due to only having two small chairs. This would have been a great place to take a nap if they had a lounger as well. Overall the suite was nice, not great but also not horrible. Read entire member review >>
Of course a grand suite should and did have plenty of room. Had great views and all things worked except coffee pot. Had a coffee maker that would only work for 20 seconds before shutting off. the only coffee was for an entire pot of coffee not a cup at a time. Still can not tell what all the noise in the
Windjammer was at many different times of day and night. Read entire member review >>
HUGE balcony!!! Overhead you do see the deck above, but who cares? Just dont look up! Honestly a good thing about that is, if it rains you could stand out there for hours! Super comfy bed, great floor plan - huge bathroom, nice sitting area, great to have a suite and get the extras like goodies delivered to you every afternoon as a nice snack before dinner!! Loved it.

Decent space. Decent view, but the deck above extends beyond the balcony, so there's no upward view. Furniture needs to be replaced, as is kind of old. There's a bar, and daily snacks provided. Bed is pretty firm, so you need to be into that. The room isn't silent- the Windjammer is directly above. You hear some banging in the late afternoon, but it's quiet at night. The stateroom attendants are excellent. Read entire member review >>
The closet was way adequate, especially for a four day cruise - lots of hanger, too. The amenities in the room were excellent (love the fruit tray on arrival!). The bathroom is quite large, much like our guest bath in our home. On second thought, it might be larger than our in-suite in our master bedroom. Nice.
The main sleeping area provided balcony access with the curtains closed - a nice touch, since Pop was sleeping on the fold-out bed. Read entire member review >>
