Almost Perfect Sunconure
The suite is beautiful, enough room and supplies (china and crystal) to entertain a huge group. We did not have any parties and did not use any of the beautiful stemware or the dining table (it was just used to put our tea and coffee on) We were probably the cleanest people on the ship. We had a small kitchen, with sink. A guest bathroom, another sink. The ensuite with 2 sinks, a shower, a jetted tub plus the toilet room with another sink. Also a hot tub on the veranda. The bedroom is spacious ( bigger than the one at home) with a desk and vanity. The en suite was big and beautiful with 3 huge closets and a full length mirror. The shower was tiny but had sprays coming from all angles, not until the last day did we figure out the one on the bottom which was just for your feet! We also had a butlers kitchen, with a huge refrigerator, coffee maker, china, coffee, tea, and a commercial microwave (which is scary for heating up your tea, it sounds like a jet taking off) The living room was comfortable and had a pull down bed if you travel with children. We did not use that room either. We did not use most of the room because we had a huge veranda, that was the best part of the cruise. And that is what we paid for, peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, perfect weather and privacy . We wanted and needed relaxation, and that is what we got! Our stewards and the staff at neptune treated us wonderfully.

Rooms:
Both of our rooms were fantastic, we stayed in a Pinnacle aboard the Amsterdam earlier in the year and found we liked the layout better on the S Class ships for a few reasons. If one of us was up earlier you had the option to close off the bedroom with actual doors versus a curtain, in addition the living room area was opposite of the bedroom offering more privacy. The decor of the NA is more modern and tasteful in color scheme than the Amsterdam in our opinion but we realize that tastes vary. We also enjoyed the deck space on the S class Pinnacle more and appreciated it for our warm weather cruise. Our only concern was that at this price point an iPod docking station should be standard. We were surprised that this was not an option, in fact our room steward was surprised as well as it was available on other ships. We had this option on the Amsterdam in the summer and assumed that the NA being newer would have it available with their Bose system. Finally the drawer space in the dressing room is woefully lacking, there are only four drawers in the area. There were two additional drawers in the bedroom and four in dining room but felt more shelf space or drawers were needed. One last first world problem was that the televisions required three remotes to operate: one to turn on the television, the next to operate the channels and the third to activate the Bose sound system. This seems to be something that could be fixed with a universal remote.

We have been avid aft corner suite fans but I think we have been sold on moving to mid-ship on the larger ships as it just makes getting from one location to the other much easier. Our niece and mother's room 7033 was well appointed as well with all the soft goods in great condition. Sunda was our room steward for both rooms and took really great care of us!
