Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite Review

Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite

If you’re considering booking a Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite for your next cruise, this review is a must-read! My extended family and I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. In addition to an ocean view balcony stateroom and two junior suites, our group also reserved two Crown Loft suites.

These Sky Class suites came with tons of living and sleeping space, two bathrooms, and loads of perks. In this post, we will provide a picture tour of the Crown Loft Suite that’s available on select Royal Caribbean ships. We’ll also discuss the Sky Class suite benefits included with these suites. So, continue reading our review below to find out everything you need to know before booking a Royal Caribbean Crown Loft suite! 

Crown Loft Suite Floor Plans

If you are planning a Royal Caribbean cruise, you have probably noticed that the ships feature staterooms of all different sizes and prices. The Crown Loft Suite is one of the most impressive suites that you can book in the Sky Class category. On the Oasis class ships, the Crown Loft suites sit on Deck 17, which is in a prime spot near the Suite Lounge and Coastal Kitchen (exclusive suite restaurant).

Since this lounge and restaurant are located on the same deck as the Crown Loft suites, guests don’t have to worry about waiting for elevators or navigating crowds to get to these exclusive areas. In addition, the hallways on Deck 17 are much wider and nicer than those on other decks of the ship. This may seem like a silly thing to notice, but my family and I often used strollers on the cruise.

The Deck 17 hallways offered plenty of space for strollers and wheelchairs. The decor also looked much newer than in other halls we visited.

Living Area

When you enter the Crown Loft suite accommodations, you’ll notice a beautifully designed entryway that opens up into a grand living area. One side of the entryway holds the staircase, a closet, and lots of storage space.

The other side of the entry features a full bath with a toilet, sink, and small shower. This downstairs bathroom is one of two bathrooms in the Crown Loft Suite, and it offers plenty of space for toiletries in the vanity cabinets.

Beyond the entryway, guests will find a small dining room that’s connected to a living room with amazingly high ceilings and lots of natural light. The living room holds a couch that pulls out into a sofa bed for extra sleeping space.

Guests will also find a chair, coffee table, mini refrigerator, and additional storage in the living space. Furthermore, the Crown Loft suites provide two LCD TVs: one in the living room and the second upstairs in the master bedroom.


While not as spacious as some of the other Sky Class suite balconies, the Crown Loft Suite’s balcony offers two loungers and plenty of gathering space.

Some of the Crown Loft Suite balconies are located on the sides of the ship and have full views of the ocean. Other Crown Loft suites sit at the back of the ship and overlook the mini golf course, basketball court, and Boardwalk.

Even though our Crown Loft suites offered less privacy, we enjoyed having views of both the ocean and the ship. Additionally, we could see and hear the Aqua 80 show on the nights it was playing.

You obviously get a better view of the show when you are seated in the AquaTheater; but we enjoyed watching and listening to the show from the Crown Loft Suite balcony too.

Second Level

The upper level of the Crown Loft cruise cabin holds the main bedroom and master bathroom. As mentioned above, guests will find an LCD TV across from the bed. You’ll also see curtains that work as a great room divider for privacy from the downstairs. The master bedroom features two twin beds that can be connected to create a Royal King bed.

Just off the sleeping space, you’ll find a large vanity and mirror with plenty of closets and storage space.

The master bathroom features a toilet, a sink, and a huge walk-in shower with shower heads on two sides plus a rain shower head in the center.

With 540 square feet of space, it’s easy to say that the Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite provides plenty of room and storage for most families.

Crown Loft Suite Perks

When you stay in a Crown Loft Suite, you not only get an impressive amount of space, but you also receive lots of inclusive amenities. We will detail some of our favorite Crown Loft Suite benefits below. You can read a full account of the perks in our post on Royal Caribbean Suite Benefits.

Concierge Service

Since the Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite is categorized as a Sky Class Suite, guests receive concierge service during their sailing. A member of the concierge team should reach out to you about a week before your trip.

You can ask questions and make requests during this time; although, we found the concierge to be much more helpful once onboard. After you are on the ship, the concierge can help you with reservations for activities, shows, specialty restaurants, etc.

Priority Boarding

Suite guests (including those in a junior suite) receive priority boarding at the cruise terminal on embarkation day. On boarding day in Miami, our family was able to enter the terminal in a separate line exclusively for suite guests.

We enjoyed a super simple and fast security check before being escorted into a private waiting room. This waiting area offered plenty of seating for suite guests as well as refreshments. Additionally, we were able to board the ship early before non-suite guests.

Suite Lounge

Sky Class suite guests (Grand Suite and above) enjoy all day access to the Suite Lounge. This is an exclusive lounge that features lots of seating and conversation space as well as food and beverages (including alcoholic drinks) during certain times of the day.

Coastal Kitchen

While guests sailing in a Royal Caribbean junior suite are able to enjoy dinner at Coastal Kitchen, Sky Class suite guests have access to this exclusive restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This was one of our favorite Crown Loft Suite perks during our trip.

Coastal Kitchen not only provides delicious food and beverage options, but it also offers a much calmer environment compared to the hectic atmosphere in some of the other dining venues. Additionally, we received incredibly attentive service each time we visited Coastal Kitchen. The servers were amazing with our kids and did a great job of managing our large party each time.

Priority Departure

Crown Loft Suite guests receive priority departure when disembarking the cruise ship. On the days that our ship was visiting a port, we received priority access to the elevators to take us down to the gangway.

This allowed us to bypass the lines when leaving the ship. Additionally, Sky Class suite guests receive priority departure on the final morning of the cruise. This saves a ton of time and headaches since non-suite guests may face extremely long lines to disembark.

Other Crown Loft Suite Benefits

In addition to the perks listed above, Crown Loft Suite guests receive access to the Suite Sun Deck, free Royal Caribbean Internet, and access to exclusive experiences. Furthermore, if you are visiting Labadee (Royal Caribbean’s private island on Haiti), Sky Class suite guests have access to Barefoot Beach on the island. This suites-only area of Labadee offers cabanas (for a fee) and a separate lunch.

Is the Crown Loft Suite Price Worth It?

Overall, the Crown Loft Suites are some of the best suites offered through Royal Caribbean International. They provide an amazing amount of space for a family, including two bathrooms, a living room, dining room, and separate master bedroom. We especially loved the high ceilings and natural light in the Crown Loft Suite.

If you are looking for an elevated onboard experience on your cruise, the additional benefits that come with Sky Class really are worth it. You obviously don’t want to book a room that you aren’t comfortable paying for. However, if you can swing the price of a Crown Loft Suite, we really think they are worth the money.

If you are debating between several of the Sky Class suites (Owner’s Suite, 2 Bedroom Grand Suite, Aquatheater Suite), I highly recommend trying the Crown Loft Suite. Prior to our cruise, I don’t think it is the one I would have chosen.

However, after experiencing the spacious room and enjoying the easy access to the Suite Lounge and Coastal Kitchen, we will choose a Crown Loft Suite the next time we sail as well. You can read about additional Sky Class rooms available in our post on Oasis of the Seas Suite Types. Do you think a Royal Caribbean Crown Loft Suite is worth it?
