Today we board Symphony of the Seas and tour our Crown Loft Suite! Room 1734. We find out all about our Royal Caribbean Sky Class suite perks, and check out the ship. This is Day 1 of our 2023 cruise vlog.
Join us for cruise vlogs aboard Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruise Line, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian and more. As cruise vloggers, we can't wait to share our cruise ship vlog and experiences with you, featuring excursions, room tours, private islands, specialty dining, and more.

Views & Queues FAQs
Where did you get that Royal Caribbean scratch off poster? We make it and sell it ourselves on Etsy! Here’s the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ViewsAndQueues
Do you two have jobs? Yes! We both have full time careers. Brian is a Software Engineer and Kerry is a Graphic Designer.
Is this vlog a paid promotion with the cruise line? No, we have never worked with a cruise line before (I doubt they even know who we are 😂). If that ever changes, we will be sure to let you know in the video.
What are those black pouches around your neck? We use the lanyards to carry some camera equipment, but many cruisers like to wear lanyards to hold their room key card.
What camera do you use? We typically use the DJI Pocket II, however, when we are in the water we use the Go Pro Hero 9, and in Alaska we occasionally used the Nikon P1000 for wildlife shots. You can find these linked in our Amazon storefront: https://www.amazon.com/shop/viewsandqueues (Full disclosure, these are affiliate links. It costs you nothing more, and we earn a small commission.)
What is a GUSS? GUSS is our name for a Towel Animal! It is a childhood memory for Brian that has lived on for years. You can see the home video moment where GUSS was born in Adventure of the Seas Day 6 (We Made the News) and Allure of the Seas Day 3 (Sea Day).
Is that one thing you said serious? Almost certainly not. If you’re new to the channel, we have really dry, sarcastic senses of humor. So if you’re questioning if it’s sarcasm - it probably is.
How do I ask a dinner time question? Leave a comment on any video and let us know it’s supposed to be answered at dinner time. We’re always looking for new questions (even if the next cruise we can answer it on is a long long way out).
Is it really pronounced CoCo “Key”? Royal Caribbean has said itself that it is pronounced “Key” in a FAQ of their own here: https://creative.rccl.com/Sales/Royal/Perfect_Day/18062757_Trade_Perfect_Day_FAQs.pdf. To each their own on this pronunciation!
When and how did you meet? We met in February of 2020 via a dating app. We answer this question in more detail in our Independence of the Seas Day 2 (Swimming with Pigs) video.
Where did you get XYZ clothing item, Kerry? I do most of my shopping on Amazon and you can find those items linked in our storefront here: https://www.amazon.com/shop/viewsandqueues (Full disclosure, these are affiliate links. It costs you nothing more, and we earn a small commission.) My sunglasses are a mix of Knockarounds and Blenders. My luggage is Bric's by Ulisse. Those fun flowy pants are from Shein. Other than that, it’s usually TJ Maxx, Kohl’s, JCPenny or Old Navy.
