What does a suite on the world's largest cruise ship look like?
Staying in a suite means enjoying the finest accommodations on Royal Caribbean's Wonder of the Seas, which come in variety of configurations and prices.
When you book a suite, you're getting the most space available in a cruise cabin on board both inside and on your balcony. That means space to spread out and take full advantage of your home away from home.
In addition, a suite gets you additional benefits such as concierge service, priority boarding and departure privileges, and dedicated entertainment seating.
Whether you choose to book a suite or not, it's always fun to look at what these giant cabins look like, just so you can get an idea of what it gets you.
Royal Caribbean recently shared remarkable photos from some of the suites on Wonder of the Seas. Keep in mind this isn't every type of suite, but there's a few varieties to give you an idea of what it's like.
From the spacious to the stupendous, here's a look at some of the suites on Wonder.
Accessible Loft Suite
Loft suites are the two-level cabins first introduced on the Oasis Class cruise ships that truly stand out for the fact it encompasses more than one floor.
This particular suite is a wheelchair accessible cabin (there's an elevator to bring the wheelchair up to the second level near the cabin entrance).
Royal Caribbean has accessible rooms are available in: Crown Loft Suite, Junior Suite, Ultra Spacious Ocean View with Large Balcony, Ocean View Balcony, Central Park View Balcony, Ocean View, Interior, Interior with Virtual Balcony
Crown Loft Suite
Here's a look at the standard loft suite on Wonder of the Seas, without the accessibility option.
The Crown Loft Suite (category L1) has two levels and has a Royal King bed upstairs and a sofa bed downstairs.
Royal Loft Suite
If you're looking to move up from a standard loft suite, the Royal Loft Suite provides more living space as well as Star Class benefits, such as your own Royal Genie.

The Royal Loft Suite comes in at 1,524 square feet of living space, plus 843 square feet of balcony space. Compare that to 545 square feet in a Crown Loft Suite!
Two-bedroom AquaTheater Suite
Another Star Class cabin is located on the end of the ship with sweeping views of the ocean and AquaTheater below it.
If you love a good balcony, this cabin arguably has the best one because of how massive it is.
On deck 8, the AquaTheater suite has 823 square feet of living space and an additional 772 square feet of balcony space. That's almost double the inside space.
Ultimate Family Suite
Have you heard about the most expensive suite on Royal Caribbean?
The Ultimate Family Suite is massive on Wonder of the Seas, offering kid-centric design and 1,134 square footage indoors and 212 on the balcony.
The location of the suite is different on Wonder of the Seas compared to Symphony of the Seas, too. Whereas on Symphony the suite overlooks the sport area, the Ultimate Family Suite on Wonder faces the forward and starboard sides of the ship.
If you're ready to book this bad boy, it won't come cheap. The price will vary depending on the sailing, but prices usually begin around $25,000 and go up quickly from there.
Suite Neighborhood Sun Deck
There are many benefits that come with a suite on Wonder of the Seas, including access to the Suite Neighborhood sun deck.
Exclusively for suite guests, the sun deck offers a special area to enjoy ocean views that has a plunge pool, lounge chairs, and a bar.
Wonder of the Seas is the only Oasis Class cruise ship that has its own suite neighborhood, which required the company to put fewer suites on the ship so that they had space for the area.
