Royal Suite Class Detailed

Lately, we have devoted a lot of time and attention to luxury cruise lines; smaller ships that make a living pampering those willing to spend a bit more to go to amazing places with a few thousand less of their friends.  We like those.  We also like big ship cruising and have spent a good amount of time on ships several times the size of those offered by boutique luxury lines.  The reason: big ships have luxury accommodations too, some with exclusive amenities for those staying in those lovely staterooms.  Today, in the first of our Big Ship Or Small Ship: Both Can Be Luxurious series we begin examining the notion that the travel experience on a big ship in top-end accommodations compares favorably to that of small luxury ship cruising.

Some big ship cruise lines go as far as to set aside a part of the ship for the exclusive accommodations and services.  Also known as ‘a ship within a ship’, it is entirely possible for those passengers to never see the rest of those onboard or even mingle in common areas.  Royal Caribbean International has done a good job taking care of luxury travelers in their Royal Suite Class, an exciting program that aimed at those looking for the best of a luxury experience combined with the top entertainment, service and activities at sea.

Royal Caribbean’s new Royal Genie department will reach out to travel agents to gather some fun facts about their clients before they sail to deliver them a truly personal experience. Who is their favorite singer? What are their favorite sport teams? What are their favorite foods? Imagine walking into your suite with music from your favorite band playing, your favorite foods to welcome you and a jersey as a gift from your favorite sports team……and that’s just the start.
