Hi Plato 123,
I would like your impression if the royal suite and what's included. Zenith is the sister ship of Horizon and I've a royal suite 1103 booked for our cruise next Mar.

The best part was the size of the royal suite. Lots of room to stretch out. The bathroom was big with two sinks but a little dark. The 42" flat screen TV was designed to retract into a partition wall but that was not working so it remained in the open position all the time. The furnishings were showing their age but were still comfortable. We had problems with our door lock but that was repaired quickly, by replacing the entire unit. The balcony was fairly large but rendered almost useless for part of the day as it was water logged because when washing down the deck above the suite the water pooled on our balcony and left a small lake that was vacuumed up almost daily.
The clothes closet was very small but there were lots of drawers in the main suite. There is a curtain that can be closed to separate the sleeping area from the main suite.
being in a royal suite does have benefits such as a tour of the bridge in a very small group as well as bubbly every day in the room. You also have access to the Waves Yacht Club and its private deck area for getting some sun with almost nobody around you and you also get free internet as well as free premium drinks packages.
I expect that the arrangements on the Horizon would be similar.
