We knew we were splurging on our suite, but didn't know how much more enjoyable having Sky Class (suite) privileges would make the entire cruise. The Crown Loft suite we picked (1756) was roomy, comfortable, private, quiet and well-kept. Our stateroom attendant, Eleanor, was friendly and took care to make up the room only in our absences (usually mealtimes, twice daily). The suite floor concierges Dudley and Christine were also terrific, helping us with all manner of questions and reservations.
The 17th floor balcony view was superb. My husband spent a lot of time reading on the balcony and it became his favorite place to relax. The two-story loft concept made the suite feel light and airy, with plenty of room for the kids on the first floor and us in the loft space. Love the double walk-in shower in the loft, and the kids had their own shower downstairs. Super convenient and luxurious. Plenty of closet space and nice wooden hangers.
The suite-only Coastal Kitchen dining room and adjoining lounge were our go-to spots for all but four dinner meals (we bought a dining package for our choice of specialty restaurant... recommended) and the service and food were consistently excellent. The staff learned our names (all four of us) and were always a pleasure to deal with.
Having enjoyed the amenities of a Crown Loft on the 17th floor of Oasis, I'm pretty sure we'll be unable to do future cruises at anything less than Suite status. Totally spoiled! Read Less
