Planning to book a cruise in April 2019 on MSC Bellissima and
have a hard time making a decision between stateroom categories
and experiences.
Option A: Yacht Club Deluxe Suite
Option B: Duplex Suite Aurea
Difference in price is $1,300 more for Duplex Suite Aurea.
Unfortunately the Duplex Suite Aurea comes without YC perks.
We are 2 people, sailing in September 2018 in Aurea Suite
on Seaview and never been in Yacht Club.
Any comments or recommendations are highly appreciated.
Thanks.

For me the question is will you spend the majority of time in your cabin or not. Food, service and perks are far better in YC for me. Others prefer the bigger suite and all it brings. It will be a brand new ship and most attention will be in the YC and they will have butter
Were in the YC from Marseille 6th April for 2 weeks

That is exactly my “dilemma”. I like to try Yacht Club with service and perks but the space & location of a Duplex Suite is tempting as well. The decision is not easy since I don’t know YC and Aurea.

It's $1,300 less for yacht club and you're asking which one to pick? The cheaper one.....

The YC restaurant is very very good. I only have NCL Jade speciality restaurants to compare against on the high seas but the YC beats them all by miles. On quality, service, atmosphere and freshness of food. I’m not sure about aurea. We thought the cabin was great and very comfortable and spacious but we are not cabin dwellers we like to get out.

YC without question! We are booked on Bellissima in YC next May. The perks and the price speak for themselves.
