Default Category C Suite on Voyager/Explorer

Hey,
I just booked a category c suite on the explorer.

Does anyone know how much larger they are then regular rooms?

Are they fantastic?

I can upgrade from a DA to a C for less than $120.00 now, is it worth it?

Default Re: Category C Suite on Voyager/Explorer


Hi Charlene,

We just upgraded to a category c suite on the Explorer and RCI
told us that the category C suite is 277 sq. feet with a 69 sq. foot
balcony as opposed to 173 sq. feet with a 47 sq. foot balcony for
the category DA cabin. Also, they said the category C has a
bathtub/shower instead of a shower. It seems that the extra space
is the major difference between the two. We decided to give it a try
as the additional space seemed nice.
We have just under 6 weeks until we sail and are really looking
forward to it!!!
Hope that information helped.

Roseann

We just returned from Explorer (3/10/01 sailing) in a catagory C. Take the C. You also get concierge service that includes a variety of special services including access to the concierge lounge, to a concierge to help with whatever needs you have from reservations for Portifino dining to getting time for ice skating. And every afternoon you get a special "snack" delivered to your suite.

We had five in our suite. Mom, Dad, 8, 3 and 1 year olds. We loved it and are glad we payed the extra for the suite.

And the bathroom is heaven compared to the others!

Have fun. We are still getting used to picking up our towels and making our own beds again.

Definitely take the upgrade! And also try and get an aft cabin as the balconies are much larger. My sister had a C on Voyager (aft). It was awsome. The balcony was approx. 10 x 12. We were also aft. Being back there was no problem. We spend a lot of time on our balcony anyway, so it was a no brainer to us to be back there. We enjoyed it very much and are in an aft cabin again on Explorer.

Happy sailing... 26 days to Explorer :-) Denise

Aaaghh! I just realized we were actually in a Category B on the Explorer. Sorry. Hopefully, there are some of the same amenities.

Can someone clear up the confusion. Does a Cat. C get the amenities a B gets on VOS?

No, you do not get the same as a B. No concierge service. A "C" is not a suite, it is a large stateroom.

Here are some pictures to help.

John, As you have stated you do NOT get the suite amenities in a cat C. The cat C appears to be a rather nicer, larger cabin but definately not a suite. One of my pet peeves is having such cabins called suites. We booked the C versus the B or A because RCL doesn't offer butler service even in their top suites. They don't need me to pay all that extra if they are not willing to provide REAL DEAL service and amenity for the buck.
