In an effort to make understanding and identifying staterooms easier, Royal Caribbean International is introducing new category descriptions for its staterooms.

The changes will go into effect on March 8 for sailings in the 2018-2019 season on all ships except for Quantum of the Seas. The update means that while staterooms will physically remain the same, they will be put into new categories and category codes based on attributes, size, location and occupancy.

According to Royal, slight adjustments were made to the category groupings for suites “with guest and travel partner feedback in mind.” The new categories are:  

Star: Royal Loft Suite, Villa Suite, Owner’s Loft Suite, Owner’s Panoramic, Grand Panoramic, Star Loft Suite.

Sky: Sky Loft Suite, AquaTheater Suites, Crown Loft Suite, Owner’s Suit, Grand Suite.

Sea: Junior Suite.

“Guests will be able to more easily understand and identify staterooms they wish to reserve according to their unique set of preferences, whether sailing as a couple or a family, making the booking process as seamless as the vacation experience they enjoy on board,” Royal said in a statement.

A full chart highlighting the new changes, with category classes and their corresponding category code and new category types, can be found on the cruise line’s website.
