Hi Bill 21Thank you so much for your prompt and in depth reply that is a great help. When I booked the royal suite 1103 I wasn't given any information about perks. It has been difficult getting information. There is also some confusion with different sites...some class my cabin as a royal suite and some don't. So I'm hoping you might also clarify if indeed what type of suite it is
You were asking what extras were included in a suite, I am assuming you have a Grand, de-luxe or queens suite (Junior suites seem to be excluded), for the three main suites mentioned you will go to Priority Check In, be offered champagne and other refreshments, be issued with a special colour cruise card (ours was silver last time), be escorted to the ship, have a table for 2 in the main dining room in a premium location, this table will be available for your exclusive use at Breakfast & Dinner (need to check about Lunch, sometimes it is, sometime it is not) if it is not available at lunch time you do not have to queue, your card gives you priority seating. Same applies to disembarking or embarking at any port, no queuing you have Priority. Room Service is Free. There is a Coffee Machine in the Room and suite guests have their own concierge. There is a private lounge on Monarch (and I believe there is one on Horizon) called Waves Club, where there is a lovely sitting area outside, a very modern lounge with all drinks included and light snacks always available and also free unlimited internet. There are often other perks, vouchers for duty free etc.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask if you want more information.
Thanks once again for your help
