For this sailing we were booked into what Royal Caribbean describes as a “mini suite”; the key word being “mini”.
In fairness, the cabin was spacious and had plenty of wardrobe space, but the lack of any reasonable desk or even a decent coffee table was bemusing. As a “suite” we also had a bathtub, rather the usual, tiny, shower.
We had two more serious issues with the accomodation, one, we imagine, specific to this cabin and another more general…
For some reason, the strong smell cigarette smoke kept wafting into the room and it proved impossible to work out what the source was.
Secondly, before deciding to sail on Royal Caribbean, you should know that, more than any other line we’ve experienced, they are engaged in a war on sleep. Announcements, often to summon individual passengers to Guest Services, ring out at all hours of the day and night and are clearly audible in the staterooms.
For what it’s worth, we cannot imagine how noisy the “inside” cabins overlooking the Boardwalk are.
