We love taking the family on weekend cruises as a quick escape, and when we got the chance to try the Royal Loft Suite on Allure of the Seas, it seemed like a great opportunity.
This is one of the biggest suites on Allure of the Seas and a cabin that has Star Class benefits, which means it has some of the best perks on the ship.

Ordinarily, a suite of this size would command a gargantuan price, but Allure of the Seas just shifted to doing short weekend cruises from Port Canaveral and that brought the overall price down to something more affordable. For my family of 4, the price came out to $7,388.32 for the 3-night cruise.
I booked this cruise right when the itineraries were announced back in March of 2022, and that proved to be a good decision as the prices then were much lower than they later became.
Take a tour of spacious my hotel room at sea complete with two bedrooms, a jacuzzi on the balcony, and some of the best views from any cabin.
My suite was located on deck seventeen, which is deck reserved exclusively for suite cabins.
On this deck there are many other suites, along with the Suite Lounge and Coastal Kitchen, an exclusive restaurant for guests staying in a suite (and Pinnacles too).
The layout of this deck is a "U-shape", and we were located on the aft facing port side.
When I tapped my room key card and opened the door, I walked into the living room.
The Royal Loft Suite has two bedrooms, a dining room, and large living room. Let's start with the master bedroom.
Given that this suite has a loft configuration, there are two levels, with the master bedroom and bathroom being entirely located on the upper floor. A staircase is how you access the second floor.
There is a king size bed, tv projector, and more closet space than you can possibly use.
There is no door to the master bedroom, but there is a remote controlled curtain that completely encompasses the upper bedroom to provide privacy and darkness.
The one noticeable feature missing compared to a newer cruise ship are power or USB outlets near the bed. The closest outlets were by the office desk closer to the staircase.
The office desk has a chair, and faces the balcony so you can have a view to enjoy.
Behind the bed is where all the storage space is located. There are drawers and closets, and there seemed to be much more space than I could possibly fill.
The safe is also located in this area, long with a seating area with mirror.
The master bathroom is also enormous, with a toilet, bidet, two sinks, two showers, and a jacuzzi tub.
The showers have two adjustable heads, along with a rainforest shower. All three can be used at the same time, or one at a time.
The second bedroom is located on the main floor, near the entrance to the suite. It can sleep two people, and the beds can be separated if needed.
The second bedroom has its own door, which makes for better privacy for anyone sleeping here.
It also has its own television, along with desk and mirror.
Adjacent to the second bedroom is a full bathroom.
Each shower has upgraded shower toiletries, including shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
In the foyer is a piano, which you can play on your own or use an autoplayer feature.
There's also a library of books you can borrow for the duration of your sailing.
In the living room, you will find chairs, ottomans, sofas, and comfortable seating.
There is also a large television in the living room.
Behind the living room is the dining room, which is a very large table to enjoy meals delivered by room service.
The in-room coffee maker can make a quick cup of coffee anytime you want.
Stepping onto the balcony, there are three doors you can use: two from the living room, and one from the second bedroom.
The Royal Loft Suite has a wrap-around balcony that provides views of the ocean and Sports Deck below.
There is a wet bar outside that you can use, along with another dining table with lots of seats. When having food delivered to the suite, you have the choice of dining indoors or outdoors.
There are two giant loungers on the balcony that face the sports deck.
There are also comfortable loungers that face the ocean.
The "pièce de résistance" of the Royal Loft Suite is the private jacuzzi hot tub on the balcony, which faces the ocean.
The hot tub is available day and night, and is one of very few suites to have this feature.
Another compelling feature of this suite is the Royal Genie services, which provides VIP privileges to everyone staying in the cabin.
Of course, the Royal Loft Suite was far from cheap, but it's designed to offer one of the most luxurious accommodations you can find on Allure of the Seas.
I felt the suite delivered on the promise of a luxurious cabin for our family to enjoy on a short cruise. We prioritized spending more time in the cabin and taking advantage of what the in-room amenities, along with the Royal Genie services.
If your family wants a lot of space, the absolute best perks, and are willing to spend a lot for it, then the Royal Loft Suite is a great choice for you.
