Default Junior Suite

Hi Everyone,
Would a Junior Suite let you go through VIP check-in?

Thanks,
Kathy

It worked for me.

They even put a small pink circle sticker on my pass. No idea what that was for.

I need some clariffication. My wife and I booked a junior suite on monarch. Doe this means we can do the vip check in? I have never booked a junior suite so I am in the dark here.

Yes, you will get the VIP check-in. You have a suite.

Remerizan -

Yes, you will be able to use VIP check-in. VIP check-in is for anyone who booked a suite (including a junior suite) and anyone who is a platinum, diamond, or diamond plus member.


Have a great cruise!

We got VIP boarding treatment with a JS on the Liberty OTS. But it seem consistency is not RCCL's strong suit.

On our Liberty cruise 4 weeks ago, there were two pool areas reserved for suite guests only (the two platforms on the right and left just below the Pool Bar on deck eleven). A JS guest is NOT considered a suite guest there. We asked at the Customer Relations desk and at the Future Cruise reps and both were very puzzled, made a phone call (to where/who I don't know) and said those areas were reserved for guests with concierge lounge access (suites, but not JS). But a JS gets the 2 cruise credits like "regular" suites... Go figure. Anyone else run into this or is this particular to the Liberty OTS? My wife was not happy since these seats were generally the only ones open most of the day.

Also there were two full rows of seats in the Platinum Theater reserved for suite guests and...you got it... these did not include JS guests.

Still... a WONDERFUL cruise!

I upgraded my room and went for the Junior Suite. We are traveling on Voyager of the Seas in November. My question is, the suite is right over the dining room. Should that be an issue?

Thanks,
Kathy

I agree it can be confusing but it's a great category. The additional floor space and a tub really make it a "deluxe/superior balcony" but "RCI" already labeled the "D" category with that tag. So just like the "mini-suites" on "Princess," you get a spacious, well appointed cabin, but not really a suite.
