    Royal Caribbean to Introduce Suite Class in 2016

    Royal Caribbean International is working on a Suite Class package of amenities and will roll it out sometime in 2016, President Michael Bayley said.

    Speaking aboard Quantum of the Seas at Vacation.com's annual conference last week, Bayley said the general idea was to make it an all-inclusive product. Royal Caribbean spokesman Harrison Liu said the exact list of all-inclusive elements was still being determined.

    Bayley was president of Celebrity Cruises when that line conceived its Suite Class. The category became operational last month on all Celebrity ships except Celebrity Xpedition.

    Suite Class provides a tiered system of benefits. All guests in Sky Suites and above have exclusive access to the Luminae restaurant. Those in Celebrity, Signature, Royal, Penthouse and Reflection suites have exclusive access to Michael’s Club, a lounge that was originally a pub-style venue on Celebrity ships.

    Celebrity guests in Royal, Penthouse, and Reflection suites have additional complimentary benefits, including a premium beverage package, unlimited specialty dining, unlimited Internet access and access to a mini-bar stocked with beer, soda, and water daily.

    Bayley said Royal Caribbean's Suite Class is intended for the high-value customer.

    Guests staying in senior-level suites on Royal Caribbean ships already get numerous privileges and benefits, including priority check-in, Concierge Club access on select ships, tender priority on select cruises, VIP pool deck seating where available, and private breakfast and lunch seating in specialty restaurants on Voyager- and Freedom-class ships.
