Symphony of the Seas Suites Guide

There are few better ships than the Oasis Class on Royal Caribbean, and the best accommodation on any ship is always the suites. So, Oasis Class suites must be some of the very best in the whole world, right?

They’re definitely up there, and there are some amazing options available if you do decide to book yourself a suite on the biggest ships on the ocean. In this guide, I’ll take you through the suites available on the Symphony of the Seas so you understand just what options are available and what you get with them.

How Many Suites Are on Symphony of the Seas?

There are 188 suites on Symphony of the Seas, including 11 different types of suites. Of those, 86 are Junior Suites, and 46 are Grand Suites. There are also some specialist suites, including the Family Villa and Ultimate Family Suite, with only one of each.

There are a couple of other websites that I’ve seen that say there are 189 or 190 suites, but I’ve checked the deck plans and counted them – twice – to make sure.

Here’s a breakdown of all the different suites available to book on Symphony of the Seas:

How Much Are Suites on Symphony of the Seas?

Suite prices on Symphony of the Seas vary depending on the suite, the time of year, the length of your cruise, and how many guests you travel with. Expect to pay around $4,000 total for a Junior Suite, and $20,000 for the Ultimate Family Suite, for 7 nights.

You’ll pay more per person if you don’t fill a room – so a Junior Suite with two occupants might cost $2,000, while it drops to $1,500 for four occupants. It’s still overall more expensive for all four of you, but if you’re travelling with friends, then booking a suite can be a good way to split the cost since it’s less for each person to have to spend.

Does Symphony of the Seas Have 2 Bedroom Suites?

Symphony of the Seas does have two-bedroom suites, including Grand Suites and AquaTheater Suites. The Royal Loft Suite also has two bedrooms, while the other Loft suites are designed to convert the lower floor into a second bedroom.

They aren’t the suites with the most bedrooms, though – that’s the Villa Suite. This massive suite has four full bedrooms, and when you also add in the convertible sofa beds in the living area, it has a total capacity of 14 guests, which is huge.

If you’re looking to book for a group, then of all the Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas rooms, a suite is going to be a better option since they’re more spacious.

What Is the Largest Suite on Symphony of the Seas?

The largest suite on Symphony of the Seas is the Royal Loft Suite. The interior floor space is 1,530 square feet, while the balcony is 850 square feet, for a total of 2,380 square feet. The Royal Loft’s balcony alone is bigger than two Junior Suites combined.

Despite its epic size, the Royal Loft Suite is designed for only six people. This isn’t a suite for huge groups, but instead, it is designed for anyone who wants more space to relax and potentially host parties, but with a spacious room to relax in once everyone has moved on.

The 11 Types of Suites on Symphony of the Seas

Let’s take a look at what each different suite offers.

1. Royal Loft Suite

Royal Loft Suite

Symphony of the Seas has a number of two-storey suites, the largest of which is the Royal Loft Suite. And it is huge. The lower floor has a large living area that includes a grand piano, as well as a separate dining area, along with a bedroom and bathroom. It’s also where you’ll find the wraparound balcony, including multiple seating areas and a hot tub.

Upstairs is the master bedroom, with a walk-in wardrobe, and the master bathroom which includes a large bathtub, a two-sink vanity and a bidet.

Take a look at this video for a closer look at what is arguably the best suite on Symphony of the Seas…

The Royal Loft Suite is a Star Class suite, which means it benefits from the service of a Royal Genie, as well as other typical Royal Caribbean suite perks.

2. Villa Suite

While not the largest suite at sea, the 4-Bedroom Villa Suite is the one with the highest occupancy. Up to 14 guests can share this outstanding suite, with four separate bedrooms. If you’re a couple of families travelling together, this could be absolutely ideal.

As well as the four bedrooms (and four bathrooms), there’s a spacious living area and a long balcony with an extended outdoor dining table and a hot tub.

The Villa Suite is another Star Class suite, so guests will enjoy the service of a Royal Genie.

3. Ultimate Family Suite

Royal Caribbean ultimate family suite

Designed to be, well, the ultimate suite for families, this amazing two-storey room is ideal for those travelling with children. There’s a separate loft bedroom on the upper floor, with a slide down to the lower floor – amazing. It also has a floor-to-ceiling Lego wall, an air-hockey table and a separate TV room, which has a 3D cinema, popcorn machine and games consoles.

The fun continues outside, too – the wraparound balcony has a bumper pool table, a whirlpool, and even its own small climbing wall. And this is another Star Class suite, so the Royal Genie can make sure your family’s wishes are met.

Take a look at this incredible walkthrough video that shows you what you can expect from the Ultimate Family Suite on Symphony of the Seas. It really is incredible.

4. Star Loft Suite

The Star Loft suite isn’t quite as spacious as some of the other loft suites, but it still has plenty of room for its four passengers. The lower floor has a large seating area, which can be converted into a bedroom, and a spacious balcony with seats and loungers.

Upstairs, the loft holds the master bedroom with an oceanview window, and a second bathroom. The Star Loft suite is another in the Star Class with Royal Genie service.

5. Crown Loft Suite

Royal Caribbean crown loft suite

The smallest of the two-storey suites, the Crown Loft rooms look almost like a regular (but spacious) balcony stateroom on the lower floor, with a bathroom and a living area that opens onto a balcony that has room for loungers.

Up the stairs is the master bedroom with a separate desk and wardrobe area, and master bathroom with a bathtub.

There are accessible Crown Loft suites available for guests with wheelchairs or scooters to book – these are slightly larger and have a wet room.

6. AquaTheater Suite – 1 Bedroom

Royal Caribbean AquaTheater Suite 1 Bedroom

The AquaTheater suites are so-named because they sit on the aft corners of the ship, with wraparound balconies that overlook the – you guessed it – AquaTheater. These amazing suites offer spacious accommodation and plenty of storage space, but the main benefit is those balcony views – ideal for shows.

You can take a look at the video from an AquaTheater Suite in this video…

7. AquaTheater Suite – 2 Bedroom

Royal Caribbean AquaTheater Suite 2 Bedroom

These suites are almost identical to the one-bedroom version, except that they’re slightly larger and have a second bedroom. These are located on lower decks than the one-bedroom version – on Decks 8, 9 and 10.

As you’ll see in this video, the balcony is absolutely huge!

8. Owner’s Suite

Royal Caribbean Owner’s Suite

The Owner’s Suite is normally a name reserved for the top one or two suites on a ship, but Symphony of the Seas isn’t an ordinary ship, nor are her suites ordinary. The Owner’s Suites are still amazing, offering a lot of inside and balcony space.

They have only one bedroom, though the living area easily converts into a separate bedroom thanks to curtain dividers, while the master bathroom has a bathtub, a separate shower cubicle, twin vanity and a bidet.

Take a closer look…

9. Grand Suite – 1 Bedroom

Royal Caribbean Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom

The most popular of all of the full suites, the Symphony of the Seas Grand Suite rooms are available on multiple decks, and offer spacious accommodation similar to the Owner’s Suites.

There’s a shower over bath instead of having both separate, and no bidet. But it does have the twin vanity still.

The bedroom can be curtained off again to create two bedrooms, and the balcony is spacious enough to have two seats along with two loungers.

Is this the suite for you? Take a look at this video to help you decide…

10. Grand Suite – 2 Bedroom

A larger version of the Grand Suites, there are just four of these available. There are two separate bedrooms as well as the living area, which can be converted into a third bedroom, and there are two bathrooms. Neither has the twin vanity, but one has a shower cubicle, and another the bathtub with shower over.

The balcony is slightly larger again, meaning it can accommodate four chairs and two loungers.

Here’s the video tour…

11. Junior Suite

Royal Caribbean Junior Suite

There are a lot of Junior Suites available on Symphony of the Seas across multiple decks, each of which is essentially a more spacious balcony cabin with extra Junior Suite perks.

There is no separate bedroom or living area here, but you do still have a walk-in wardrobe and a bathtub with shower over in the bathroom.

There are a couple of accessible Junior Suites available, which are wider and have a wet room instead of a standard bathroom.

Which Suite to Choose?

The big question, right? With so many amazing suites to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you?

For a lot of people, it comes down to two things – occupancy and budget. If you’re a family of four, there’s no point booking the Villa Suite, because even having a double bed each isn’t worth the extra money you’ll pay.

The Star Class suites do have the benefit of the Royal Genie, but consider whether you’ll use them, or if you would be better served saving the money. One cruise in a Star Class suite often costs the same as two (or more) cruises in a lower-class suite.

Every stateroom and suite is amazing on Symphony of the Seas, but that doesn’t mean they all suit everyone – there are some staterooms and suites you might want to avoid.

  1. Hi. I’ve been reading all of your articles. The closest answer to my question is “VIP pool deck seating (on Voyager Class ships and above”. Can you tell me exactly what ships offer this feature? I’ve literally asked everyone I can think of. I’ve asked Royal Caribbean representatives. I’ve asked my travel agent. I’ve asked numerous other travel, expert bloggers, etc. and no one seems to have the answer. But I know for sure is the following ships have suite deck pools wonders of the sea, icon of the sea. I think Voyager & freedom do as well. I’m almost positive. I can’t be the only one that wants to know this information. Ha ha 🙂 I have two kiddos and we just got finished with our first cruise yesterday. We paid $12,000 for a grand suite. 🫣 We did not get to sit by the pool once. I felt like I way over paid for the services that were offered. We purchased another cruise while we were on board… We are able to make changes to that for two months and we plan to do so. We would love to do icon of the sea or wonder of the sea because they’re so kid friendly, but there aren’t a lot of dates (other than rainy season) and the suite prices are much higher for good dates… obviously. So options are what I’m hoping for.
