We were traveling with a group, with 5 interior staterooms. 7517,7519,7521,7523 and 7525. When we got in to our cabins the carpet in 7525 was wet. They brought a extractor and tried to dry the carpet, when that didn't work they replaced the carpet and pad. We went to dinner and a show, got back to the room about 5 hours later and it was flooded and smelly again. They said they were unsure where the water was coming from but guessed it was the shower of the cabin above and offered to dry the carpet again. We had to make a ruckus at 1am and they found a cabin on deck 8 to replace 7525, then the rest of us still on deck 7 got to listen to them extracting water at 2 am and again at 6 am and multiple times during the cruise.
Beyond the water the condition of the couch in our cabin was very worn and stained. Other then the wear issues the inside cabin has plenty of room for storage, we actually like how dark inside cabins are so you can sleep. Read entire member review >>
As far as inside cabins go, I found this to be fairly “spacious” and was generally clean and had lots of space to store bags and items for two people despite the only 160 sq ft size or so. The tiling in the bathroom was a nice touch, and we had an excellent room steward. Location was also good because it was away from the noise yet close to the elevators. The reason the room was not a solid A is because throughout the cruise, there seemed to be a musty smell in the room that could not be cleaned. The room staff shampoo’d the carpets and did a deep cleaning which seemed to help a little, but still the smell remained. I suspect it might be the HVAC needs to be cleaned because I know the room steward did all he could to get rid of the smell. And it wasn’t a particularly bad smell, more on the annoying side I would say. Read entire member review >>
This stateroom was in a good position fwd, near to the elevators and easy to get to the Royal Promenade up and down the stairs. The only downfall was a service door opposite which at times could be a little noisy if you were a late riser out of bed (after 9am). Read entire member review >>
I have no complaints regarding the stateroom. The bed was comfortable the bathroom small, but it did the job.Our attendant was friendly and efficient. We did not use the fridge but found the safe to be useful. In all the room is well planned out Read entire member review >>
7123 was in a good location. very little foot traffic, and yet we were close to the stairs and elevators. The bed was comfortable, and we liked the openness of the cabin layout, but this made for smaller closet and storage space, but it was still ok. No complaints about the cabin.

The cabin was big enough for us. They joined the beds for a "King Size" and was very comfortable, quietly and accesible. The sixth deck is above the dinning room, so I was able to walk down the stairs and get to the dining room easily. For shore excursions, I can walk down to deck 1 easily and to the gangway without having to wait for the elevators (that sometimes were too crowded). I recommend this cabin and the ones around it.
