Unless you really need the room don’t book the grand “family” suite. Not grand in any sense of the word. Located amongst the cheapest cabins on the ship, this “suite” offers nothing in the way of enhanced decor or amenities. Other than access to the concierge club and a nice big living room, this room is nothing special. Hearing our screaming drunk neighbors all night long, long walks from our room to anywhere else on the ship and 15 bug head to toe bites last night (while in bed!). Again, other than the concierge in the concierge club there was no recognition of us being suite guests. I will never book another royal Caribbean family suite. And the pool scene on ocean days is a nightmare. Wall to wall people. I elected to stay in the cabin to escape the mob scene. I do recommend chefs table. Quite nice. This ship is just too big to be fun. I strongly recommend RC’s smaller ships. Or sail on celebrity instead. Much, much nicer! Just Disappointed
