Two bedrooms (beds can convert to Queen), two Pullman beds. Vanity with chair in each bedroom, living area with double convertible sofa, dining room, marble entry, entertainment center, two bathrooms - master bath with tub. Expansive balcony with table and chairs. (673 sq. ft., balcony 610 sq. ft.)
The cabin is spacious and comfortable for sleeping two, not three. The only bathroom is in the bedroom, and it is huge and awesome. Anyone staying in the sitting area must intrude on the ones staying in the bedroom, but we were traveling as family, so not a big deal.
Although this suite states sleeping provisions for three, it clearly should be for two. The sofa bed was so incredibly uncomfortable that I ended up having the concierge order me a roll-away bed with an egg crate mattress topper, which ended up being pretty comfortable. That was on day three. It was only right that my parents got the bedroom. That is a very comfortable pillow top mattress.
The balcony is fantastic as it wraps around approximately 3/4 of the room. You have a view of a portion of the Boardwalk, all of the Aqua Theater, the magnificent wake trailing behind Oasis, and a rather private area gazing out to sea. There are two doors to the balcony, one from the sitting area and one from the bedroom.
The noise from the Aqua Theater is pretty loud during events and contests, so napping during the day while the belly flop contest is in full swing may not be a viable option. lol. It did not bother me, and the noise was never late evening or nighttime.
There is a coffee maker in the room, but you need to unplug the TV to plug it in. There are ample plugs throughout the suite, though.
There is a full length mirror to the left when you enter the cabin, and there is a wonderful lighted mirror over the vanity in the bedroom for applying makeup, fixing your hair, etc.
There are two full closets, one in the entry way and one in the bedroom. There are also full drawers and a cabinet in the sitting area for clothes, although only a small drawer of two in the bedroom.
The cabin steward was Fernando, and he was fantastic. Read entire member review >>
The Room was awesome and the perfect choice for our family of 3. We had no issue to share the bathroom, which is located in the sleeping room and even if our kid had to use it in the night it was fine. The bathroom door makes some noises but we left the door open during the night and all was fine. Our son slept on the Sofa-Bed and was very happy with it. To have two TVs in the room was also really nice.
The balcony is awesome! But at the end of the week i realized because there is so many things to do on this huge ship, we didn't use the balcony as often as we could have. So next time another cabin with a smaller balcony will be fine.
Regarding the walk to the cabin, as people complain sometimes about the location at the end of the ship: it is really not that bad! Actually we liked it because we ate way to much and like this we moved a little more.. :-) Read entire member review >>
Great cabin for couples traveling together. Spacious and well appointed. One downside, it is located in the rear of the ship so there is a lot of walking to where ever you are going. We did not mind at all. Read entire member review >>
Not sure about the A3 but the large room we had overlooked the Aqua theatre and Boardwalk on one side - ocean on the other. One large master bed and bath and one bedroom with 4beds - 2 of them pull downs.Loved the room! It was a gathering place for our large group. Read entire member review >>
Awesome balcony. 270 degree view. Room for 8 to dine. We ate breakfast every morning there. With the suite, they will deliver everything you can get in the regular restaurants, plus you can have eggs cooked to order. Plenty of space for 8, three seperate rooms, so can get privacy, if you want it. You can watch the shows from your balcony and enjoy a drink and a snack, just like box seats. Only issue: they have an incinerator on board that burns the trash so soot falls on the back of the ship, washes out of clothes, but don't wear your nice clothes out on the balcony. We read about it online before sailing, so weren't surprised. They can't do anything about it, so if anyone says they will fix it, they don't know what they are talking about. They would have to replace the incinerator, so won't happen until the retrofit in about five years or so. BTW this is also an issue on the boardwalk, sport area, and aquatheather, so be careful with your Don Johnson white suit! Read entire member review >>
Aqua Theater Suite. Category A-3. Cabin #10730.
Major issues with soot on the balcony. Something that RCI has to get corrected or this will be on an on going issue. Cabin holds eight but unless some are small children, I would not want eight in this cabin. Would hold six comfortable. Plenty of closet space throughout and along with seating both inside and out on the balcony. Balcony has great views of the Aqua Theater, wake of ship and ocean views from the side of the balcony.
