The full suites book early on almost all ships. There's quite a variety available in suites throughout the lines as well, so it's difficult to say which is the best. There's no real best for everybody.

Celebrity Millennium class ships have fabulous Penthouse Suites, with a smaller suite available to book,with connecting doorway.

Royal Caribbean has some wonderful family suites.

NCL has an array, with their top drawer Garden Villa Suites, which are truly amazing.

I only know about Carnival, but here it is:

I cruised with 4 adults in a Cat 12 suite on Carnival, and it was a bit too much bonding. I love them all, but just too many adults for a cabin and after the third day, I needed some space. I would suggest looking into two connecting cabins, or even just balcony cabins side by side and have the cabin steward open the dividers between the balconies. We did this on our last cruise and it was great! Spent a lot of time with them (three cabins all with balcony dividers open), but loved having my own space to get shower, sleep, etc....

Jodi, i totally understand about needing your space. We went on a family cruise a couple of years ago and eventhough i love my family dearly it was just enough to have dinner with them everynight, run into them here and there on board, and do a couple of excursions together.

Shahla - that is something to seriously think about, its tight quarters even in the largest suites, and then there is the whole bathroom issue. Most suites only have one bathroom, 5 ladies one bathroom, YIKES. You would be much better off booking two adjacent balcony staterooms.
