What can possibly be better than waking up in the morning, opening the balcony door and gaze at distant shores with a steaming cup of coffee at arm's length? On all passengers can enjoy this luxury, as all suites on board have their own private teak verandas. Measuring 365 square feet, even the least expensive suite category is larger and more elegant than top suites on other ships.

Suite 1010 Suite 1010 Bathroom of suite 1010

Take the "standard" Deluxe Suite. It has a lounge- and sleeping area, walk in closet and a bathroom with a bath tub and a separate shower stall. It is obvious that no expense was spared in designing these suites, and the attention to detail is downright astounding. It starts at the front door. When the suite attendant decides to stop by, she will ring the bell! The bathroom is enormous, the number of towels mind-boggling and the marble shines from all sides. Soap, conditioner, bath & shower gel, shampoo and body lotion are donated by Judith Jackson, who also runs the spa on board.

In the walk-in closet, we find an umbrella in case of an unexpected drop of liquid sunshine. The safe can be programmed by using a four-digit code and of course there is a lot of hanging and drawer space. Bring in the tuxedos! Back in the seating area, we explore the contents of our refrigerator. The beds can be made up in a twin configuration or as one Queen-sized bed. With fluffy, comfortable European duvets and reading lights that provide enough light without blinding your travel companion, getting an early night is really something to look forward to on this ship. In the lounge area you will find a large sofa, two chairs and a table that can be raised and enlarged for in-suite dining. After all, room service is available 24 hours a day and during dinner hours you can choose from the changing menu of the Compass Rose Restaurant.

Underneath the interactive TV we find a DVD player, which is ideal for playing your favorite music CD's or enjoying a recent movie release. The ship has a full DVD library where you can pick a movie to your liking. And as you have settled down on the sofa with the lights turned down low and a drink close at hand waiting for the movie to begin, only the sound of the waves outside will reveal you are actually on a ship that is setting course for the next port of call.

Master Suite 700

But it is not all about "standard" suites on Seven Seas Voyager. The ship has many more suite categories, ranging from the elaborate to the incredible. Let's start at the top with the extravagant Master Suite. We visit Master Suite 700 (pictured above) all the way forward on deck 7, with two bedrooms, bathroom overlooking the bow, balcony with teak wooden furniture and several widescreen screen TV's placed at random in the living room and bedrooms. It just doesn't get any more exclusive than this!

If your budget does not allow signing up for any of the Master Suites, you might want to consider a Seven Seas Aft Suite. This is a delightful suite category set all the way aft (hence the name...), with great views from the large balcony. We visit suite 971 that is dominated by a curved glass wall directly opposite the Queen sized bed. A small side table with chairs and a comfortable lounge area complete the picture.

Voyager Suite Grand Suite 1104 Grand Suite 1104

My personal favorite is the Grand Suite, number 1104. Located all the way up on deck 11, this seagoing apartment is like an elegant oasis of light. First, there is the comfortable lounge with dining table and wooden writing desk. A beautiful wooden dividerthen leads to the sleeping area. In a glass bay window you will find a large Jacuzzi bath next to the bed. A separate bathroom holds a shower and toilet. And the gigantic walk-in closet is bigger than the cabins on many other cruise ships.
