Five of the most luxurious cruise penthouses & suites
We have talked before about the incredible array of ultra-luxury cruise ships on the market and the far-off destinations they allow you to discover, but what about the accommodation itself? It’s fair to say that cruise ships in the luxury sector offer beautiful cabins for every passenger but a stay in a suite or penthouse takes the definition of luxury cruising to a whole new level.
Panoramic views, your own personal spa treatment area and a dedicated butler to tender to your every need are just a few of the delights you can expect to indulge upon. Laura Lamb, Head of Product and Media at Reader Offers Limited, looks at five of the very best cruise penthouses and suites.
Silversea’s Silver Muse
Silver Muse is the latest ship to be added to Silversea’s fleet and will be launched in early 2017. Offering all of the hallmarks you would expect from the ultra-luxury Silversea experience the Grand Suite is no exception. A two bedroom suite with ample interior and exterior space it really is the epitome of luxury and offers an unprecedented level of relaxation.
From outside where it boasts the largest veranda onboard where you can entertain or share intimate meals against the backdrop of spectacular sunsets, to inside and its luxurious furnishings and modern amenities.
A dedicated butler, walk in Italian rain shower and deep bath, two flat screen TV’s, state of the art sound system and Pratesi bed linen are just a few of the luxuries that adorn this beautiful space.
From priority embarkation to debarkation, express luggage delivery, priority bookings for restaurants and theatres your penthouse or suite on board the Celebrity Solstice ship offers VIP treatment at every turn. Truly unique rooms with floor to ceiling height windows lead out onto panoramic balconies and are furnished with plush bedding, luxury bath products, fresh flowers, a daily fruit platter and afternoon canapés and tea service. Most suites have separate sleeping areas and you even have a pillow menu to select from to ensure you get the perfect night’s sleep.
A penthouse suite offers even more including the likes of a marble master bath, balcony whirlpool, butler’s pantry, exercise equipment and a baby grand piano.
Oceania’s Sirena penthouse suites have undergone a complete transformation since the ship’s major refurbishment to join the Oceania fleet. Spanning 322 square-feet the Sirena penthouse features exquisite furnishings, splendid décor, a living area that includes a refrigerated mini-bar and vanity desk and provides enough space for in-suite dining. Outside the beautifully furnished private teak veranda is the perfect place for relaxing and for those cooler evenings you have a complimentary cashmere lap blanket to keep you warm.
