Default The suite life

My wife and I were discussing cruises last night. The parents of a friend had booked a suite on NOTS. We both seem to vaguely remember seeing a two-story suite with a spiral staircase. Does any one know of such a thing existing or is it the stuff of movies?

I can specifically place a two story suite in a grand old hotel down in Southern Indiana. Maybe I am confused with that.

Looks like Queen Mary has two story suites:

Haven't seen any others on cruise deck plans site.

The Oasis class ships have the two level suites but I do not believe that the Freedom class ships have these.

Perhaps it was the Oasis or Allure, "Loft Suites" that you were remembering.



Take care,
Mike

Marc may have nailed it We toured the Queen Mary years ago and probably saw a two story suite then. Wonder if Oasis loft are the only ones currently at sea.
