Default mini-suites

Are there any advantages to a mini-suite other than size and balcony.

Larger bathroom, the Sun sisters have jacuzzi tubs and lots of marble. The towels are bigger and thicker. Some have walk in closets, two TVs...that sort of thing. C747 on Dawn had a huge balcony with a table and 4 chairs and two lounge chairs. It also had a storage shed!

Just returned from an E. Caribbean Cruise on tyhe Grand Princess. Booked a mini-suite and it was great. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. Nice size bathroom, lots of storage space, great balcony etc. We booked the port side and had a great view of sailaway from our balcony!

Hahaha...more likely for a mop! Actually, since we had a third person sharing our mini, the "real" mattress came off the couch and into the shed during the day.

Gary,

Minisuites have a sitting room or area, usually furnished with a sofabed and a table and a couple chairs. They usually also have a bathtub as well as a shower.

We are booked in a mini-suite on the Grand 9-15. I'll let you know the advantages when I return. We usually have an inside cabin so I'll probably be gushing with info when we get home.

I sailed on the Pacific Princess years ago in a mini suite. NO butler service at that time! The disadvantage was having to keep drapes closed in port because the room was eye level with the pier. Lovely mini suite!
