Has anyone here used a family suite before? I was searching the RCI website, but couldn't find out how many can sleep in one. Hard to find pricing too. It's my hubby, myself, and our 4 teens. I'm trying to decide if we should get two regular rooms, or get a suite big enough for all of us. Suggestions?I would think the problem will be the bathrooms....with 4 teens..........especially if some are girls......you will need a few.......
RCL's suites or family staterooms have a maximum occupancy of 4 (even in their largest suites). They actually allow 5 max providing the 5th passenger is under 2 years of age.This is incorrect. RCCL has several classes of staterooms that will hold more than 4 people. However, the maximum that can be booked online is 4 people so to book more than 4 people in a room you have to call for pricing or use a TA. The staterooms that hold more than 4 people require a minimum of 5 people to book and do not show up online.
You will need to get 2 rooms for 6 people.
if you're accustomed to and comfortable with making your own travel arrangements without a TA, why not just go straight to RCL? You may need to call them instead of doing it online...From reading through the boards it appears that through a TA or certain websites we might be able to get better pricing. Because we are paying for 6 people to go, that would be very helpful to us, more money for excursions.

Therefore, the price will be the same anywhere. Some TAs will give onboard credit or a free bottle of wine, etc. But before you book with any TA, I would ask these questions:
