Got confirmation today that we are in room 12000! I know about the privacy issue on the balcony, but I am very excited. Here is how we got it: first we booked a 1 bedroom suite. then we asked if we could book 12000. Guest services said that 12000 was reserved for royal suites to make connections for parties larger than 5 people. They told us that if both royal suites were booked and neither of them requested a connector suite then we could request to be moved to 12000. we got lucky! both royal suites were booked with no connector requests so they moved us into 12000! This is such a splurge for us! we really don't have this kind of money but wanted to live large at least once. does anybody have any pictures of 12000? Can anybody please give us tips on taking advantage of the concierge service? we want to get the most bang for our buck. sailing the fantasy 1/11/14!
