7 Of The Most Outrageous Suites at Sea
April 29, 2016
Most of us can only ever dream of staying in the top of the range suites, but still, it’s nice to dream right?
For some lucky (and wealthy) people, knowing that you’re staying in the best of the best, the largest and most luxurious suite that the ship has to offer is all that will do!
If you’ve never stayed in the ships best suite before (and let’s be honest – how many of us have!) then here is your insight into the wonderful world of outrageous cruise suites. Butlers and walk in wardrobes? That’s only the beginning…
Anthem Of The Seas – Royal Suite
Starting in May this year, Royal Caribbean are attempting to reinvent cruise luxury with the Royal Suites aboard Quantum and Oasis class vessels. Aside from the bare minimum that you’d expect, such as the Ultimate Beverage Package and High-Speed Internet, Royal have added amenities that’ll really make you feel like King of the World.
A Genie Butler will of course come with your room, ready to deal with any food and drink requests – not just for mid-day meals either, your Genie will happily make your wish come true and deliver a full dining experience right to your room.
Luckily there’s no three wish limit and nothing to polish in order to summon this Genie! Couple the seemingly limitless extras with your incredible room (it might be nicer, and bigger, than our house) and the incredible range of activities aboard Royal Caribbean, and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable cruise.
Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 – Queens Grill
When you think “Cunard” and “Luxury” the Queens Grill immediately comes to mind. In fact, Cunard have dubbed this the “pinnacle of luxury”, so you know it’s going to be good.
Much like Royal Caribbean’s suite, you’ll have your own personal butler who is willing to arrange anything from private cocktail parties to exquisite private dinners. We’re not sure why you’d want to dine in your suite though, when the exclusive Queens Grill restaurant will provide you with plenty of privacy and luxury when compared to the main dining room.
On top of that you’ll find your room refreshed with fruit, flowers and chocolate every single day, a private balcony, 24 hour room service – pretty much anything you could wish for can be found in the Queens Grill!
NCL Gem, Jade, Jewel and Pearl – The Haven
It’s rare when something sounds as romantic as a hidden enclave used exclusively for a private tryst, but The Haven by Norwegian just might be it.
At the top of the ship away from other guests you’ll find The Haven, an exclusive and lavish accommodation made by Norwegian Cruise Line, just for you. We’re expecting a personal butler at this point, a private sundeck and priority embarkation and disembarkation. Well the good news is that all of that is, of course, included.
But what is most impressive about The Haven is the fact that you can book a 3-bedroom Garden Villa. Up to eight guests can sleep here, meaning you can invite the whole family on a cruise with you – if you want them there, that is!
Your villa will also be fully decked out with champagne, custom selection of liquor, fruit, water, fizzy drinks and more. Plenty to keep the family entertained – or just yourself if you’re feeling indulgent!

Holland America – Pinnacle Suites
These suites come with a king size bed, oversized whirlpool bath & shower, living room, dining room, dressing room, sofa bed, microwave, fridge, guest toilet, private stereo, floor to ceiling windows and offers 1357ft of space.
The most impressive feature is outside though… as you can enjoy a whirlpool Jacuzzi on your very own balcony!
You will also have access to a private lounge where you can socialise and relax with other suite guests and enjoy free Wi-Fi, refreshments and make use of a 24 hour concierge service.
The ultimate suite of luxury? Well, we’d have to say it’s pretty close to it…
Oceania Marina and Riviera – Owner’s Suites
With 2,000 square feet of space at your fingertips, these suites are amongst some of the largest at sea and span the width of the ship looking over the wake. Your room will be furnished with Ralph Lauren Home and there will be his and her walk in wardrobes, indoor and outdoor Jacuzzi’s and 24 hour butler service.
Guests staying in the suite will receive access to a private executive lounge stocked with soft drinks and snacks and your room will come with 6 full sized bottles of premium spirits. You’ll even get a Bulgari gift set and a complimentary Oceania tote bag and stationary.
Your butler will be able to deliver all meals to your suite if you wish, or arrange your excursions, supply even canapes and organise your laundry and garment pressing.
Sounds pretty luxurious to us…
Seabourn – Wintergarden Suite
You know those extravagant celebrity parties that happen in Hollywood? A new movie has just premiered, or a major product has been launched, and in the VIP room you’ll find everyone you can read about in the latest issue of Variety – well, this room looks like the room they would party in.
This room, when not populated with A-listers, is crisp, clean, and impeccable. No expense has been spared to make the Wintergarden suite absolutely burst with personality. You can easily imagine rock stars and world famous actors alike lounging and partying in this suite which is undeniably classy.
Not only does this cabin have all the luxury features you’d expect, but also an expansive deck, whirlpool bathtub and a glass-enclosed solarium, complete with a curtained daybed – for that extra layer of luxury and privacy.
Regent Seven Seas Explorer – The Regent Suite
And saving the best till last… there is only one Regent Suite aboard the Seven Seas Explorer, and that’s because true luxury and quality are very rare indeed!
So it’s big – 3,875 square feet, to be precise – bigger than many homes! But with this comes a private spa, including treatment area, sauna, heated relaxation loungers and multi-jet showers – wow! That’s almost as good as the unlimited – and complimentary – in-suite spa treatments. Can it get any better?
Well actually, it can! A private car and driver to guide you around every port, unlimited laundry services, 270 degree views over the bow – and that’s all without mentioning the expensive, exotic touches the room itself has received, thanks to marble and premium quality wood furnishings. Top that off with a custom Steinway Arabesque piano and you’ve got the ultimate suite – in fact, can we just live here? Please?
These suites are all the stuff dreams are made of!
Would you like to stay in any of these suites? Which is your favourite? Have you ever stayed in one of them before?
