Do Oceanview Panoramic Suites also get suite benefits?

Recommended Posts

Are these rooms cheaper than a junior suite? If so then how to they get suite benefits and the junior doesn't.
Just slightly cheaper than a JS for my sailing. There is no balcony, so I believe they are using the suite benefits to make these cabins more desirable.

On our sailing on Freedom in March, these suites cost more than a junior suite.

When we booked our VP last October for this December sailing it was significantly cheaper than JS but now when I see the VPs they are more. You can hardly find these VPS for sale anymore b/c people are booking them very far out. We booked it originally b/c we have 5 in our family and it fits us...we wish we could get the VP for our adventure sailing next december but it was already sold out so we had to got the JS route!:(

I’m assuming the new suite designation and its perks also means suite level gratuities?

If it's a full suite, then it will have full suite gratuities.

Much ongoing discussion about that.

 

My TA has ours covered, so I don't know.

According to royal carribbean blog it has ocean view panoramic suites (VP) on freedom and voyager will be full suites with suite benefits. That is what it seems, but want to hear from royal. Also in article it has VO cabins on grandeur being treated as full suites also.

It would be nice to hear it officially from Royal. The skeptic part of me thinks that the ships may be giving the perks only because of the name designation of Panoramic Suite but they really should be getting JS perks.:halo:

We booked the VO on th Grandeur yesterday and I asked to add gratuities as well. They added at the normal rate of $14.50pp/day. I pointed it out to the TA and he just said it was an error that worked out in my favor.

 

I'm concerned if this cabin will really be a full suite or not, but I've been assured by multiple people from RCL and the TA that it is indeed a full suite.

I just contacted RCCL on Facebook. This is their answer!

My question:

I am reading that the two VP suites on Adventure of the Seas, are now being given full suite (gold card) benefits. Is this true?

Their answer:

Yep! Moving forward, guests booked in these suites will receive the same benefits as guests in Grand Suites and above.

So, I have it on Facebook messenger, we will see what happens in October 8th!

We are booked in 1804 (the square footage and extra 1/2 bath sold me!). Everything (reviews etc) I have seen to date indicated that it was an oceanview. But Royal's site and the travel agent site both list it in the suite category.

 

I guess I will wait (I have 14 months!) and see how it is classified prior to our cruise.

 

Let me know if you get Suit Perks! I’m in 1804 in January!

Please post back with your experience. We will be on liberty in Oct 2019 for 2 weeks in 1804. Interested in confirmation that we will get a gold card.

From the way it is worded above, the ocean view suites could be in the same class as junior suites and not get a gold card.

I have been in 1852 and 1876 and no gold badge or suite points. They didn’t even act like they knew I was there. I became an emerald member and had to ask for my robes and never got my pin after they confirmed it was on its way to me. I will be going back soon 😁
