We booked this for a family holiday. 2 in our late 50's and 2 adult children 20 and 21. We booked a suite as it worked out cheaper then 2 rooms and gave us access to a range of suite benefits. Cabin 8694 - had it as a 3 bed apartment setup. Worked well for us. Priority boarding and disembarkation _ very smooth. Access to the Concierge lounge _ small but complimentary drinks and canapes_ very nice. We found most other public areas very crowded so it was a relief to have this facility. A la carte breakfast in Chops Grille or use the buffet and eat here, no queue for a table. Bonus ! MDR was good , used 4/7 nights. We like speciality dining and build it in to our holiday cost. Chops Grille _ excellent Giovanniss _ Food good but would have liked more choice Isumu_ interesting and enjoyable Ports of call, _ good transport arrangements in place. Hamburg,Oslo, Brugees. All different and interesting.used our concierge lady for info and booking trips. Quizzes were well run but the area they use gets too crowded. Cafes were always busy - not a problem to us but if I was in a different category it would have been. Entertainment _ ice show good, The quest_ hilarious. Production shows need rethinking. We have previously cruised with Celebrity and couldn't t help compare even our children preferred Celebrity, just more room to chill. It's showing signs of wear and tear but spotlessly clean. Excellent staff in all areas.t Overall we give this a 4/5 but would definitely consider RCL again.

Suite a godsend!
