Grand Accommodations on a Cruise Ship

Accommodations on a grand scale on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis and Allure of the Seas.


Oceanview cabin on cruise ship - Cruise and Tour Planners

These accommodations I talk about are called cabin categories.  If you are not knowledgeable about cruise ship cabins, I will give you some guidance about any cruise ship.  Then I will talk about how the Oasis & Allure are different.

  •  Inside cabins.  Usually the least expensive.  No windows.  May have mirror on a wall with drapes on the sides to look like a window.  If this is all you can afford, at least you are on the ship.  But you will probably never book inside cabins again.
  • Oceanview cabins have either a picture window or a porthole, depending on where they are located on the ship and are not  as claustrophobic as other inside cabins.
  • Balcony cabins have floor to ceiling window and door that opens to the fresh air and balcony.  Great for quiet times away from the crowds.
  • Suites come in various sizes and are bigger than other cabins.    Some have hot tubs, mini kitchens, tables big enought for a conference, separate bedroom areas and grand pianos.

Now let’s talk about the Oasis of the Seas differences.

  • Balcony cabins that are inside but the balconies that are overlooking Central Park and Boardwalk so they are open to the sky.Inside Balcony
  • Suites:  Lofts with 3 categories.  These are 2 story with full glass on the water side.  Royal, Sky, and Crown Loft Suites are different sizes and in a private area of the ship only accessible by special key.  All haveLoft Suitesbeautiful living areas downstairs and beds on a mezannine loft upstairs
  • Aqua Theatre Suites have 6 different sizes and configurations.  What they have in common are very large balconies overlooking the Aqua Theatre on the aft of the deck with glass all around.
