We had this suite in October of 2012. We loved it. We asked for Palo. We did not like the dinner menu so our concierge suggested order the pizzas from there for lunch and they were great. We also order breakfast from one of the resturant. We were able to get a ipad for the week. We had some laundry done also ( no charge). We asked for a bridge tour also and got it. We had Danny as our concierge and he was great. Enjoy the cruise, Deanna

I have a quick question did you just order the Palo pizzas? Like you did not have to even go to brunch???

Also I am in a 1 bedroom do you think if we ask our concierge we could do a bridge tour or is that only because you had the Royal Suite?

I think that only the royal suites can order from Palo. Yes, our concierge order the pizza and had it delivered to our room. I would just ask your concierge about the bridge tour. This was our third time staying concierge but first time in the royal suite. We have asked everytime to see the bridge. they let us this time. I think it has to with the concierge and how good they are. deanna

Don't think just because you are booked in one of the Royal suites you will get the tour. It really really depends on your concierge. We were in the Roy and we paid for our dry cleaning. I know others have had certain things for free in 1 bedroom suites and others not. Some experienced Concierges do alot to make passengers happy. Others go strictly by the book.

Our kids went with us but they are older(16 and 14). I also think that it has to do with the concierge that you have. Danny was be far the best concierge that we have had yet. Deanna

I would suspect it's the Captains decision, not the concierge's.

Now I'm curious if those who toured the bridge had the same Captain.

When in January? We are going on the Magic with another family that will be in 8530, and we will be in 8532. We have cruised in a 1BR a couple of times. Captain John invited us to dinner way back-- more than 10 years ago. I don't know if the captains do that anymore. Our kids got to join us on a sail away from one of the islands, and they got to push the button that played the Mickey Whistle. Those were the days!

As for the Bridge Tour....it's NEVER guaranteed. Ever since 9-11, the bridge tours were supposedly cancelled. Most of the time, we've found that concierge can help coordinate a tour with the Captain....his secretary (or whatever she's called) anyway.....but it doesn't always happen.

The odds have seemed better on a longer cruise, as opposed to a 3 or 4 day. We've been on the bridge with 3 different Captain's, so I don't think which Captain it is makes a difference.

I'm not sure if the piano is still in the Walt or not.

The only difference between the Walt and the Roy (other than the piano) is the coloring of the wood.
