The Royal Suite Class is a luxury onboard experience launched by Royal Caribbean in May 2016 exclusively for suite guests. The Royal Suite Class is currently offered on Oasis-class and Quantum-class ships including Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas, Harmony of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas, and Ovation of the Seas (Singapore and Sydney departures only). This program has three tiers, the Sea Class, Sky Class, and Star Class, offering more inclusive amenities depending on the tier.
Royal Suite Class – Offered on Oasis and Quantum Class Ships
The program is received automatically when you book a suite on the Oasis and Quantum class ships, and the tier you are assigned is dependent on the room category that you book. Unfortunately, these suite class experiences can not be upgraded and can not be purchased if you are staying in any other cabin category. These perks also can not be shared with other family members who are non-suite guests.
The least inclusive of the Royal Suite Class tiers is the Sea Class. Guests booking any of the following stateroom categories will receive a select number of perks- Family Connected Junior Suite, Family Junior Suite, Spa Junior Suite, and Junior Suite. These perks include dinner at Coastal Kitchen- a restaurant exclusively for suite and pinnacle members, a luxury pillow top mattress, L’Occitane Bath Amenities, and use of bathrobes while onboard. Not to mention, you will also enjoy the increased living space and full-sized bathroom that comes with booking a suite.
Royal Suite Class – Upgraded Bath Amenities
The second tier in the Royal Suite class is the Sky Class. This tier is more inclusive than the Sea Class and comes with booking any of the following cabin categories- Grand Balcony Suite, Superior Grand Balcony Suite, Family Suite, Owner’s Suite, Crown Loft Suite, and 1 bedroom Aquatheater Suite (decks 11, 12, 14). The luxury amenities offered with the Sky Class include a Concierge, all day access to the Coastal Kitchen restaurant, reserved seating at select entertainment venues, exclusive access to the suites only Barefoot Beach Club in Labadee, access to the Suite Lounge with hors d’oeuvres available from 5-8:30pm nightly, access to Suite Sun Deck, free VOOM internet (1 device per person, Surf and Stream Package), and specialty bottled water, in addition to all other Sea Class offerings.
Royal Suite Class – Suite Lounge
The most inclusive tier of the Royal Suite Class is the Star Class. If your finances can afford, and you want true VIP service, this is the class for you. It’s a pretty “suite” life! By booking any of these accommodations, Royal Loft Suite, Owner’s Loft Suite, Grand Loft Suite, Sky Loft Suite, 2 bedroom Aquatheater Suite (decks 8, 9, 10), or 4 Bedroom Family Suite, you will receive celebrity treatment, including a personal Royal Genie, complimentary dining at all specialty restaurants including Chef’s Table, a complimentary Ultimate Beverage Package (or Royal Replenish package for guests under 21), unlimited VOOM internet, complimentary gratuities, access to exclusive tours including the Bridge and Galley, complimentary mini-bar, complimentary laundry and pressing, and all day access to Coastal Kitchen. After spending a week in one of these rooms, you may never want to go back to reality.

Our Experience with the Royal Suite Class
During our recent sailing on Oasis of the Seas, we splurged and booked a suite due to some special promotions being offered by Royal Caribbean at the time. We were able to secure a Junior Suite with 4x Crown and Anchor points, free VOOM internet, and onboard credit from Royal Caribbean, coupled with free gratuities and additional onboard credit from our preferred online travel agent. This offer was too good for even DB to pass up!
Royal Suite Class – Junior Suite on Oasis of the Seas
By booking a Junior Suite, we qualified for the Sea Class perks. While nothing compared to the all-inclusive Star Class, it’s always nice to have a little extra pampering. Being our first time in a Junior Suite, we really enjoyed the square footage, the extra bathroom space, and the over-sized closet. See our stateroom review for more details on the Junior Suite cabin category.
