A passenger onboard Royal Caribbean has made a complaint after finding the view from her cabin was blocked by a cows ‘dairy-aire’ (see what we did there?)
Luckily the guest was warned in advance about this obstructed view by one of our specialist cruise consultants.
Cabin 6305 on Royal’s Freedom Class of ships has a rumour that follows it round; legend has it that this room actually came about by mistake.
This very cabin onboard Independence, Freedom and Liberty of the Seas was originally supposed to be just an ordinary Promenade Stateroom (with a window view looking out onto the Royal Promenade), although it quickly turned into something a bit more special.
After the Ben and Jerry’s parlour was added to the Royal Promenade it was quickly discovered that the two cows on top of the awning would block the view of any guests looking out.
You won’t find it on any deck plans and you won’t find it in any official literature from Royal Caribbean themselves, but if you’re one of the ones in the know and manage to book this cabin then you’re in for something utterly unique…
The entire cabin is decorated in a cow motif with cow sheets and pillows, cow pictures on the walls and cow ornaments.
It’s also the only inside cabin with access to the concierge lounge and you’ll be given free Ben and Jerry’s ice cream all cruise!
Upon checking in to this cabin, you’ll find a note waiting for you in your cabin from Royal Caribbean:
Welcome aboard the Freedom/Liberty/Independence of the Seas!
Due to your stateroom’s proximity to our delicious Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop and because of your unique view of Ben & Jerry’s mascots, overlooking the Royal Promenade, we’ve proudly designated this stateroom Ben & Jerry’s “Sweet”.
Accommodations in this “sweet” come with benefits not available to our other guests.
-Complimentary Ben & Jerry’s ice cream treats for each guest (and enclosed in your folder are two complimentary vouchers. These vouchers are valid for seven visits per guest)
-Access to the “Cow” concierge lounge on deck 10 aft
-A fun themed stateroom, unique to Royal Caribbean International
However, should you find the cows outside of your windows to be a “moo”-isance during your cruise vacation, please contact Guest Relations by dialling “0” and we’ll be pleased to “moo”-ve you to an “udder “stateroom (if available).
In the meantime, we wish you a pleasurable cruise vacation.

What do you think of this ‘suite’? Could you stay in this room or would the cow-theme be a bit too much? Have you already stayed in this cabin? Let us know in the comments below…
