The 10 Best Cruise Ship Bathrooms

by John Roberts | December 21, 2015

Although inside cabins and lower-category outsides may have tight showers and strange configurations — have you seen the design in which the whole bathroom becomes the shower? — luxurious suites tend to have jaw-droppingly beautiful bathrooms. Here are 10 of our favorites:

Crystal Penthouses
Crystal Symphony 
These cabins are classically elegant, with Italian marble and mosaic tiles. Marvel at the large, walk-in, glass shower, complete with marble bench, and the separate tub with ocean views ... and a TV.

Reflection Suite
Celebrity Reflection
This incredible one-of-a-kind bathroom is large and dramatic, with an oversize bathtub and a flat-screen TV. Still, it's the unique cantilevered glass shower that juts over the edge of the ship that gets people talking. 

Grand Duplex Suites
Queen Mary 2
It's no surprise that the line known for classes goes all out with its top suite bathrooms. This one comes with a large jetted tub, a walk-in shower, fancy marble finishes throughout, tons of natural light, and (best of all) a bidet.

Owner's Suite
Oceania Riviera 
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.

Royal Loft
Anthem of the Seas 
You'll never want to leave the gorgeous open bathroom; it's as large as many standard cabins. Plus, it features a huge whirlpool tub with a prime ocean view that's great for relaxing in when sailing in and out of port (with a drink, of course).

Grand Wintergarden Suites
Seabourn Odyssey 
These suites have not one but two bathrooms. The master baths feel downright enormous, and they come with a glass-walled shower, a circular jetted bathtub, and Molton Brown products, including bath oils.

Owner Suite
Europa 2 
How big is this bathroom on Hapag Lloyd's luxurious ship? Well, to begin with, it has three sinks. It also has a shower with steam sauna and a round whirlpool tub room, a large daybed, and spectacular ocean views.

Garden Villa Suite
Norwegian Dawn
These "villas" have bathrooms with massive floor-to-ceiling "windows" — let's be honest, they're really glass walls. The bathrooms also have a jetted soaker tub, a separate shower, and dual sinks.

Owner's Suite
River Beatrice
This Uniworld bathroom may just be the most luxurious and spacious powder room on the European rivers. You'll find dual sinks, a bidet, and a separate rain shower and tub. Plus, the room is outfitted with L'Occitaine and Hermes products and plush towels and robes. We suggest starting your cruise by opening a complimentary bottle of wine ... in the tub.

Pinnacle Suite
The Holland America Line ship bathroom is opulent in a flashy, no-holds-barred sort of way. Picture a whirlpool tub, a walk-in shower with six settings, and unapologetically gold-colored sinks and faucets.
