The 10 Best Cruise Ship Bathrooms

by John Roberts

Forget about the cramped, plastic bathrooms that cruise ships have become notorious for. These bathrooms wouldn't be out of place in a luxury resort, with double marble sinks, full-size tubs, and some pretty incredible ocean views. Yes, you'll likely need to upgrade to a suite to get to soak in one of these tubs. But oh are they worth the extra cost. Here are 10 of our favorite bathrooms at sea.

Seven Seas Explorer's Regent Suite bathroom / Regent Seven Seas Cruises
Celebrity Reflection's Reflection Suite bathroom
1 of 10
1. Celebrity Cruises' Reflection Suite 

On: Celebrity Reflection

This incredible bathroom is one-of-a-kind. Yes, there are luxe touches like an oversize tub and a flat-screen TV. But those are completely secondary to the main focal point: a glass shower that cantilevers over the edge of the ship for dramatic ocean views.

2. Regent Seven Seas' Regent Suite

On: Seven Seas Explorer

This Regent Seven Seas ship launched in July 2016 as the "most luxurious ship in the world," so it's no surprise that the ship's sprawling Regent Suite has one of the most luxurious bathrooms at sea. The master bedroom's en suite is basically a spa in and of itself, with heated lounge chairs, two saunas, two hot tubs (one indoors, one outdoors), and a separate treatment area.

Norwegian Star's Garden Villa bathroom

3. Norwegian Cruise Line's Garden Villa Suite


On: Norwegian Dawn and Norwegian Star

These three-bedroom suites are lined with floor-to-ceiling windows, and while there are prime views throughout, the master bathroom gets some of the most striking. The space is located at the corner, giving the room a curve that widens the expanse of ocean outside the window. You can take in that vista from the jetted soaker tub or the dual sinks.

Oceania's Owner's Suite bathroom

4. Oceania's Owner's Suite


On: Oceania Riviera
 and Oceania Marina

The bathroom in this stylish cabin offers Ralph Lauren designs, with all the details you would find in a luxe home: double vanity, wall-mounted TV, large round jetted tub, and rain shower. But it's the sexy details — mahogany, nickel, and marble finishes — that set it apart.

Quantum of the Seas' Royal Loft Suite bathroom

5. Royal Caribbean's Royal Loft Suite

On: Anthem of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas, and Quantum of the Seas

You'll never want to leave the master bathroom in these suites; it's as large as many standard cabins. The layout is completely open, and the shower (with side-by-side shower heads) and the large whirlpool tub situated against the windows for prime ocean views. Just imagine yourself soaking in the tub with a glass of wine as the ship sails out of port.

7. Hapag-Lloyd's Owner's Suite

On: 
Europa 2

The spacious and airy bathroom in this suite is basically an extension of the balcony. Right off the bedroom you'll find the main section with double sinks and a shower with a steam sauna. The room then opens up to a glassed-in space with a round whirlpool tub, a large daybed, and spectacular ocean views.

8. Viking Ocean Cruises' Owner's Suite

On: Viking Sea and Viking Star

There are a lot of Scandinavian touches on this ocean line, from the design to the food to the traditional treatments in the Nordic Spa. But book the Owner's Suite and you won't even have to leave your stateroom to relax in a sauna — the centerpiece of Scandinavian wellness. There is one right in the master bathroom, with a window looking out over the ocean.

9. Crystal Cruises' Standard Suites

On: Crystal Esprit

You don't have to book the top suite on Crystal Esprit to have a stunning bathroom. All of the stateroom bathrooms on the ship have marble double sinks, stone floors, and TVs in mirror, plus are stocked with Etro robes, slippers, and toiletries. There is a reason to upgrade to the Owner's Suite, though — that one has a full tub as well.
