Our cabin was a two bedroom royal suite, and it was very roomy. Online it says it can sleep up to 8, but I think 7 is more realistic because the pull out couch bed in the living room really sleeps only one comfortably (unless you have little kids it could work). I traveled with three teens and two adults, so it was fine. The second bedroom has two twin beds, and two bunk beds to sleep 4 very easily, and the master has a king size bed for two (or they can be pulled apart to two twins). I loved all of the beds because my kids didn't have to share a bed (my kids are ages 12-16). The extra hall room closet was bonus storage space for suitcases that didn't fit under the beds, and extra room to hang clothes and put shoes because there are only shelves and drawers in the second bedroom. We had plenty of storage in the master bedroom for clothes. The master bathroom was kind of tight. It has a tub, but the shower is in the tub. We have traveled on other cruise lines and newer ships that offer a separate tub and shower, but it worked out just fine. Overall, the room was great. The balcony was the best we've had. It was huge, and I had the option of using a lay out chair on my own balcony if I wanted, but the main problem was hunting down and checking out a pool towel first (the chairs get hot). The TVs didn't always work well, and they should put one in the second bedroom so kids don't fight over just one in the main living area. There is also a TV in the master bedroom, which was nice.
The room was clean, lots of space and storage, but isn't as fancy or updated compared to newer ships. Read entire member review >>
Starting to show wear on carpet and drapes but still an excellent choice, very roomy and beautiful lighting and decor. Lots of storage for clothes. Huge beautiful bathroom. Awesome large balcony, tons of windows and jacuzzi was used every evening. Worth every penny spent. Read entire member review >>
The Royal Suite should be quiet and relaxing - and maintained. It was not! Regular cleaning was done, but it needs a good thorough deep cleaning in most places. The walk in closet was nice, but crowded behind the bed with only a small entrance was inconvenient. The hot tub always had a yellow ring around it, but I think that was the water's fault. The noise from above was always bad and if I could have, I would have went back to the Royal Family Suite from last week. Much nicer. Read entire member review >>
