Best Ships for Suites


uites are the most lavish accommodations on any ship, and although they are always larger than regular cabins, they do not always have separate rooms for sleeping, but they almost always come with extras.

The most expansive (and expensive) have large living rooms and separate bedrooms and may also have huge private outdoor sundecks equipped with hot tubs, changing rooms, and dining areas.

uites almost always have amenities that standard cabins do not have. True suites have separate living and sleeping areas. Depending on the cruise line, you may find a small refrigerator or minibar stocked with complimentary beverages of your choice. A bottle of champagne on ice almost always awaits you upon embarkation. A suite might have an espresso machine or a more elaborate entertainment center; the bathrooms are usually more lavish than in regular cabins and have a tub instead of just a shower.

An added bonus to the suite life is the extra level of services many ships offer. At the least you should expect priority boarding and disembarkation, free laundry, concierge service during the cruise, and top consideration when making restaurant and spa reservations. Even space on sold-out shore excursions may be available to you. Some suites come with butler service; the butler can handle the tasks from valet services and unpacking your suitcases to daily delivery of tea and hors d’oeuvres. These cruise lines have the best suites at sea.
