While chartering a private jet to get from Point A to Point B is efficient and luxurious, today’s upscale cruise liners have given new meaning to the term “premium” with offerings like celebrity chefs, exclusive on-shore excursions, magnificent itineraries and enthralling entertainment. The stateroom you call home during the journey is just as alluring as the rest of the package. Here’s a look at some of the lavish accommodations offered by some of the world’s most popular cruise lines.
Royal Caribbean | Royal Loft Suites
Ranging between 1,559 square feet and 1,640 square feet (not including the balconies), the Royal Loft Suites on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas, Anthem of the Sea, Quantum of the Seas, and Allure of the Seas are two floors high with two to three large balconies containing a dining area and whirlpool spa. The suite can fit up to six guests and has a baby grand piano, media room, dry bar and bathroom on the main floor. Upstairs, you’ll find a loft-like master bedroom with a soaking tub, separate shower and a breath-taking view of the open water.
Celebrity Cruises | Reflection Suite
The exclusive Reflection Suite aboard the Celebrity Reflection sits on the AquaClass corner of the ship, which requires a special SeaPass card to enter. The 1,636-square-foot suite offers the comfort of a Premium Reverie mattress with a Dream Sleep System, as well as elevation and massage functions. The 24-hour European-style butler service can bring meals to your room or arrange priority seating at any of the restaurants. For endless views of the water, the sea-view bathroom includes an all-glass rain shower on a cantilever that extends over the 14th balcony.
Grill Suites | Cunard
Touted as one of the most lavish cruise lines in the world, Cunard (Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria) offers the Princess ad Queen Grill Suites with up to 2,131 square feet of living space. If that isn’t enough, the two-story Balmoral and Sandringham Duplexes have 2,249-square-feet of space. The duplexes offer views over the stern, a fully stocked bar, marble master bath, your own exercise equipment and his-and-hers dressing areas. The full Grills Experience comes with a dedicated butler service, priority disembarkation and luggage delivery, private dining venues and white-glove tea service.
The Haven Garden Villa | Norwegian Cruise Line
Several of the vessels in the Norwegian Cruise Line feature “The Haven,” an exclusive area of the ship reserved for ultra-VIP guests. Among the suites and villas in this area of paradise-at-sea are the two and three bedroom Garden Villas. The villas offer a 24-hour butler service, dedicated concierge service, courtyard access, baby grand piano, walls of windows, a private terrace with a dining area and a private outdoor garden with a hot tub. The villas are up to 5,750 square feet and include complimentary limousine service from the dock to the airport at the end of your trip.
Crystal Penthouse with Verandah| Crystal Cruises
When booking a trip on Crystal Cruises‘ Crystal Serenity ship, request the 1,345-square-foot Crystal Penthouse with Veranda (not just the penthouse) for its beautifully appointed wood accents, marble countertops and exquisite fabrics. The penthouse features a 24-hour butler service, master bathroom, walk-in closets, guest bathroom, pantry and kitchen filled with refreshments, teak furniture on the veranda, a Bang & Olufsen sound system, private workout area and a library. When you need refreshment or feel hungry, enjoy the in-suite tea service and in-suite pre-dinner gourmet canapé and cocktail service. You can also arrange for in-suite dining. Within stateroom all details are covered—from the welcoming bottle of Cristal to the binoculars to the personalized stationery that you can request.
