Default Confused on a Junior Suite

I am hearing that being in a junior suite on the VOS will not get me the concierage service or the special lounge. Why is it called a suite then if I dont get the same service as other suite holders.

Philly, the "suite" term gets thrown around a lot ... I would say it's easier to consider a suite will at least have a sitting area with a sofa and chair, as well as a balcony. Tubs are usually also standard in some cases.

Why is it called a suite
Excellent question, with no good answer, other than they can charge more for it, with the "right" terminology.

The "Junior' and "Mini" suite terms are names for larger balcony cabins. On Voyager of the Seas you gain about 50 sq. ft. and a little larger balcony. The Aft Junior Suites are the best deal. They have very large balconies and slightly more room than a port or starboard Junior suite. You will also have a tub with shower instead of a round shower stall and a larger bathroom.

This extra room is most noticeable if you have a couple of people in for cocktails or if there is more than two people sharing the cabin.

Take care,
Mike

The Jr. suites also have a large walk-in closet, in addition to the other features mentioned above.

I lucked out because I got an aft cabin and have been told my balcony is about 15x15 feet. I will believe it when I see it though. RC told me that the only perk I will get is the fact I get priority embarkation and disembarkation but I do not have to pay the extra $2.50 a day in gratuity. I actually would have put a fuss up about that one. I would not have wanted to pay more for a room I did not get special service with.

You won't Phillygirl! We were upgraded from an OV gty. to a balcony on our Sept. cruise and I can tell you, I'm looking at a balcony booking for my October, 2005 cruise! I loved the balcony waaaay more than I thought I would and dh spent a good portion of each day out there.
