Default Jr. Suite Bathroom vs. Grand Suite Bathroom

Have stayed in GS, but have a potential upcoming trip that the difference in price is almost $1500. How do the bathrooms compare? Is JS in the line of a balcony type bathroom or is bathroom sumilar to GS with granite and sunken tub, etc.?

I know I lose out on the Concierge benefits, but $1500 will buy lots of drinks. Bathroom is important as my daughter takes lots of time and needs space!

The bathroom in the JS is not much bigger than a regular balcony but it does have the tub with the shower and it is less messy than a regular balcony shower but it sure isn't as nice as the GS. Does not have the marble or two sinks and all that wonderful stuff.

In saying that for a saving of $1,500 I would absolutely go with the JS.

(I've done both.)

Thanks Paul and Felix.

The double sinks would be nice...but again...$1500 is a lot of difference.

I've stayed in a JS on Voyager and a GS on Serenade and Radiance. The JS was an aft cabin so the balcony and the cabin was a bit larger. The GS is wonderful but for $1500 I would also go with the JS.

The JS balcony is more like a regular bath but a bit larger and it has the 3/4 tub. There are no double sinks or granite counters in the JS but it is a manageable size.

Take care,
Mike
