Great ship but too big for our taste!

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

In all we were 13 people in this suite and we were comfortable. We had 4 bedrooms in all. 2 of them were Master bedrooms with bathroom/ bath tub. Plenty of storage space for all the guests. 3rd bedroom had an attached bathroom w standing shower.

The room had king bed and 2 bunk beds with enough storage. the 4th bedroom also was kind with 2 bunk beds but no bathroom. The 4th bathroom is across from this bedroom. The living area had a big sofa that became a queen bed at night. There was a round dining table with 6 chairs. This living room is huge and can accomodated all 13 of us at the same time to watch movies or play board games. Our balcany had hot tub, bar, and 6 loung chairs and a table that coult fit 14 people for dinner/ breakfast or lunch. The conciarge service was great for the suite members. We had drinks everyevening before dinner. The coffee was also great here. We had 5 kids between the ages of 10 to 20 and they made the most of room service. We had a great time More but would not book Presidential suite again as it is way too overpriced for what the benifits they offer.

The shows - Chicago/ Blue Planet and Ocean Area were phenominal.

The food quality and varity has certainly gone down from the last trip we took (12 nights to Baltic on Jewel of the seas-London/Finland/Sweden/Denmark/Russia & Estonia -2011 We had Grand Suite for this trip)

We wolud prefer to book either Freedom class or Vision class ship for our next trim either to South America or Australia. Hopefully RC will take Mariner of the seas to Australia instead of it going to Asia.... Less

Cabin review: Allure of the Seas President Family Suite Deck 12 12640

Presidential Suite 12640. Great location but the furniture inside cabin needs work. All 4 bathrooms were great but the beds were not comfortable :-)
