Now this is living large. All passengers have butler service, an Italian marble bathroom with both shower and a separate tub, a stocked fridge and Champagne upon arrival, replenished as desired.

Silver Spirit has 270 oceanview suites, 95 percent of which have private teak balconies. The suites range in size from 312 square feet to 1,668 square feet. Four suites, all on Deck 5, have handicap access.

There are 216 Midship Veranda and Veranda Suites -- identical in layout, at 376 square feet (including the balcony.) Our Midship Veranda Suite was easy on the eyes with warm two-toned wooden furnishings that complemented the gold and burnished red bed linens and drapes. It's a soothing palette. The bedroom has a queen size bed that can be separated into twins. There's also a built-in vanity with a mirror and flat-screen TV.

New to Silver Spirit are the interactive TV service and movies on demand. Passengers can now review their accounts, check messages or choose from one of 387 movies. The televisions themselves give new meaning to "flat-screen." They are actually part of the mirror so they take up no extra room. The programming lineup includes Fox News, CNN International, BBC World and ESPN.

The sitting room is efficiently arranged with a full-size couch, a chair and a coffee table. There's also a built-in desk, a second flat-screen TV, plenty of shelving and a small refrigerator that our butler kept stocked with Chilean whites and Diet Coke. The balcony, 65 square feet, has two attractive taupe chairs and matching foot stools along with a table for drinks.

As for the bathroom, it's gorgeous –- modern in feel with brown and cream marble, a huge elevated sink, and nine different lighting fixtures. The shower has both a handheld showerhead as well as a permanent head that pivots, producing something that almost feels like gentle rainfall. The tub is full-size. Toiletries are compliments of Salvatore Ferragamo, Bvlgari and Neutrogena. I confess it bothered me that there was only one hook in the bathroom, no clothesline and, for some unfathomable reason, the sink was designed with no stopper.

Every suite has a small walk-in closet with a safe, chest with six drawers, and a spa robe and slippers. The cabins, completely wireless, have an iPod station, alarm clock, hair dryer, umbrella and binoculars, a very fine touch. Outlets are wired for both 110 and 220 volts.

Additional amenities in the Silver, Grand and Owner's suites include afternoon canapes, dinner at the officers' table and two hours of complimentary worldwide phone use. The Grand and Owner's suites also feature laundry service (including dry cleaning and pressing,) an espresso maker, dinner for two at Le Champagne, a daily newspaper and two hours of Internet service per day.

The one-bedroom Owner's Suite is 1,292 square feet including a 190-square-foot veranda. Adjoined to a 312-square-foot Vista Suite, it can be configured into two bedrooms. Unlike the standard suites, this one has a separate dining area, a marbled bathroom with a double vanity, a whirlpool tub and a powder room.

The Grand Suite is 990 square feet including a 125-square-foot balcony. When adjoined to a Veranda Suite, it bumps up to 1,302 square feet and accommodates two bedrooms. It has a different layout than the Owner's Suite but offers all the same extras.

The Silver Suite, at 742 square feet including a 118-square-foot veranda, has a separate dining area but, unlike the other deluxe suites, it does not have a whirlpool tub or powder room.

The Vista Suite, at 312 square feet, is the smallest onboard and has a large picture window but no balcony. Some of the suites accommodate three guests.

A butler and junior attendant are assigned to each suite and will do as much, or as little, as asked. As is the custom, our butler made our dinner reservations, delivered room service and kept the refrigerator stocked. The junior attendant provides daily suite service with a nightly turndown.

Notably, there are seven complimentary laundry rooms onboard. Soap is provided. There is also laundry, dry cleaning and pressing service, but it's pricey.

The spa was immediately about our suite and we got woken up by noisy work being done to it at 7am. Also, the noisy rearranging of chairs on the deck just above us also began at 7am. I hadn't expected this unwelcome surprise when paying for a suite...continue
