Royal Premium Suites

Recommended Posts



last year we were in a balcony front facing cabin.


There were times when it was too windy to enjoy, but we also had sea days when we were able to use the large balcony during the day with almost no wind.


One evening the winds were heavy and there was no chance to use the balcony at all.


It also depends a little in how fast the ship is going.


When in port it was almost always quite calm on the balcony

The Premium Suites on the Royal class ships are our favorites suites.  The balcony is not forward facing, i'ts on the side and we never had any problem when at sea.  The premium Suites offer the best of both worlds.  A large forward facing window in the bedroom and the outside balcony on the side.

Hmmm.  I never would have considered the wind coming at you, as obvious as that may be, in a forward facing balcony.  There were times I was considering booking them but I don't think I'd enjoy them now that you made me think about it.



The Premium Suite balconies are not forward facing.  They are on the side.  The window is forward facing. The picture is a forward facing balcony cabin.

Got it.  I was looking at regular balconies.  Based on your comment, I would not have any problem with the premium suite situation, other than the lack of enough of a value proposition on a personal level.
