The grand suite had plenty of space for us and was in good shape save for some work needed on the balcony. We would have no need to pay extra for an owner's suite, although I would certainly consider a configuration that had two bathrooms. The couch made a lovely bed for the boys. The balcony was a great spot to sit or lounge and had plenty of space for a table, two chairs, and a lounger. I might pick a cabin closer to a stairwell next time, but I was on balance very happy with the cabin. I also enjoyed several suite perks (several reviewed here) enough to not downgrade to a junior suite. Read entire member review >>
First Navigator of the Seas cruise was in a Junior Suite which was very nice but I prefer the GS. I have been in Grand Suites on other RCI ships but this one was more spacious. I usually do not get off the ship during the cruise so I like to have a larger cabin with a large balcony. I also enjoy the amenities that come with the GS. The only negative comment I have is that I did hear some noise like chairs being drug across the deck above a couple of times but it wasn't a big deal. Read entire member review >>
The room was large and felt like a decent hotel room rather than a small cruise ship room. If your budget allows we highly recommend cruising in a suite, it’s well worth the perks and service amenities. The only complaint with regards to our room was towel animals only appeared every other night rather than nightly. Read entire member review >>
A very roomy cabin, with a queen sized bed and fold out sofa, which worked great for our daughter. The bathroom was very spacious and the shower/tub combination was great. Great views from the balcony too! Read entire member review >>
RCI Navigator of the Seas - Grand Suite - 1552
We cruised with only 2 people in a Grand Suite. Very clean and spacious. Even with clothes for 7 nights AND Scuba gear for 2 people we still had a lot of drawers we didn't use. I was able to do a kickboxing workout video in the living space! Bed is super-comfortable. Balcony is spacious. We ate breakfast at our balcony table every morning. Great view. Nice and quiet. We read one review of this stateroom indicating that noise from the solarium was an issue but it wasn't for us, and this was a spring break (party) cruise. Beautiful bathroom - good to have a full tub and shower to clean Scuba gear in. Nice to have 2 sinks. GREAT Bose sound system! As a gal with VERY long hair I wish I had remembered to bring my own hairdryer - the one they give you is very basic.
Wonderful suite attendants. Great concierge lounge. Ricardo Mock, the concierge, is fabulous.
Opposite end of the ship from the concierge lounge. One level down from the fitness center and solarium. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1568 was spacious, plenty of room for 3 adults and one child. We unpacked everything and still had empty drawer space! Not noisy--sometimes you could hear scraping from the pool deck above, but not often. Fairly quiet location---6 cabins away from the forward elevators, and maybe a little more than twice that to the aft bank. Read entire member review >>
1586 - Very clean with a Great Balcony. Did hear some noises at night with the moving of chairs on the pool deck above. Was not bad enough to affect sleeping but you could hear it some late evenings. Read entire member review >>
Decent size suite. Double sized balcony was nice. Wish there had been 2 actual rooms - instead there was a curtain and a sofa bed for the kids. Bathroom was a good size but had only a high step-in showertub (not a separate shower). Read entire member review >>
GS 1552 - portside; very close to forward elevators. Was apprehensive about booking re; noise, but really not an issue (elevators were not that close to the room)Deck 10 - just below the Solarium/hot tubs. Again, apprehensive about the noise, however, there was only a bit of noise (chair shuffling in the evening, but brief and not that disruptive). No problem during the day in terms of noise.Bathroom - good size, two sinks, bathtub/shower. Would have preferred glass door, not shower curtain.Also, no electrical outlets in the bathroom, had to dry hair in bar area/vanithy near bed.Great balcony, with a lounger and two chairs/table.TV - the interactive system was being upgraded so was not available for use (used to view statments, book excursions, room service etc).The PA system sucked, could not hear any announcements, had to open the door to hear them.

Exceeded expectation in every way. The suite was far better presented than is implied by the RCI website photos, having rattan furniture on the balcony was also very nice (don't get that on Queens Grill on QV). Suite was open plan which ensures that you have maximum useable space. Well soundproofed, great having a Bose entertainment system (with dvd, vhs etc). Also had a doorbell.

The Grande Suite was fantastic. Plenty of closet space, huge bathroom with a double sink, deep bath tub and granite counter tops. Drawers in the bath as well to put your stuff. The balcony was large with a nice table and 2 chairs along with a lounger. Read entire member review >>
