You definitely should... for the price, there's nothing better.
Chuck- the "dinner with the Captain" - does that happen on every cruise, or only on cruises >8 days. We had a suite on a 12 day cruise, and had both the reception and the dinner with the Captain in the (then) Odyssey (now Pinnacle) restaurant. I was told that on 7-day itineraries, it's usually "lunch with the Captain" - is this true??
Yes, Smittytex - just like Chuck said... minibar with alcohol is there, but it is a charge per bottle... HAL is generous, but not THAT generous!! (LOL) The captain's cocktail party had free drinks ("the basics" - wine, gin and tonic, etc.), though, so make sure you go to that!!
I can't remember all of the additional perks, but there were always "little something extras" waiting in the room for us every afternoon/evening.
And as I mentioned in a prior post, the concierge's are GREAT... they really get to know you personally. They found out that my wife liked strawberries and I liked chocolate chip cookies, and every afternoon without fail, a plate would show up at our room. It was really nice.
We're sailing in a Verandah Suite on the Westerdam next Sunday on a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise... I'll update the board upon my return.
