I'd say Hawaii, because there's lots of sea days and you'd get to take advantage of the room.

If I would be booking a royal suite, I would want to make certain that I would be spending a lot of time enjoying it. A transatlantic would be perfect!

The question is a little more complicated than it first appears. Part of the problem is that you would have to consider not only the itinerary but also the ship that sails. We have considered some Disney cruises with more interesting itineraries but opted against booking simply because we did not care for the ship. So, it does depend on what you want from the experience. For example, in Europe, there are so many options, I might think another cruiseline altogether might give a better experience. Europe is so port dependent, that the ship is really secondary for us. A Caribbean cruise, for us, is less about the ports and more about the experience on the ship. So, we do vary our choices based on a variety of issues.

Transatlantic. Tons of sea days to enjoy the room and its perks.

I loved the TA in steerage. If you put me in the royal suite, I'd never leave! Way to enjoy those sea days!

Is the suite different on the newer ships than the classics? If so, I'd go with the ship class that has more amenities and I'd do the longest cruise-probably the TA.

Anything with lots of sea days or something like the Med where you would be able to take advantage of the verandah

I would be torn between Europe and Hawaii. SO jealous that cost isn't a factor for you. Whatever you choose, I'd make sure it's on Fantasy or Dream since the royals looks amazing! If I won the lottery, I think I would just move into one.

I'd say see which ones are available. Most of the time the royals are booked.
