We had one of those odd-shaped oceanview cabins a couple of decks below the bridge right off the front of the ship. The shape made it roomy on the window side and we had a 2 person sofa there. We did have to keep the curtains closed at night because of the bridge above. The cabin was in good condition, bed comfortable with newer bedding. TV appeared to be newer and in working order. Not as much storage space as some ships but average. There is a fridge but not very cold and didn't see a switch to turn it up.
The cabin attendant quit right at 7:30 pm. We had 8:30 dining but if we left the cabin after 7:30, we got no service even though there was a tab to put in the lock that said "make up room". The first day he told us he worked 6 to 8 pm in the evening but we found out otherwise. Also he barged in 2 times because we had no "do not disturb" sign for our door. I had to finally ask for one the 3rd day after he did that. When we did get service, it was fine. Read entire member review >>
While small to moderate in size it met our needs and we were rarely there. Every day our room was cared for morning and night. The towel animals really rocked. The shower was just right size. With all of the shore excursions and shows we were there to sleep, get ready and GO. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: The cabin has a small refrigerator which we put our drink in and we found a bottle of red wine courtesy of Royal Caribbean for our Anniversary. I thought that was nice Since our kids, ages 15/17 years old, didn't really want to swim, we went to explore more and we met our stateroom steward, Angelica. She asked us what our preferred bed arrangement since were 4 in the cabin and asked her if she can put an ice bucket in our room for our drink. This she did for the duration of our trip. The bathroom was extremely small but we managed and there were an on and off sewer smell but I brought in a Lysol spray which we used to take care of the smell. In any case, we were hardly in the room and bathroom so it really didn't matter. My husband and son uses the bathroom/shower in the gym to get ready for dinner which gives them and us, girls, more space. Read entire member review >>
We had 7206, Starboard side and in the front of the ship overlooking the bow. LOVED this cabin. Same price as the other Cat H outside cabins but with 1/3 more space and 2 windows facing forward. Great views while sailing and docking. Would choose this again. The only other cabin that would be better is a balcony cabin, but of course they cost a little more. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nice. It had a balcony so we could sit in peace and quiet. It has the old style steel surround so you don't hear everyone around you when you just want peace. Our room steward was great! Unfortunately, space for clothes was limited but we did okay. Read entire member review >>
we paid extra for what they call a Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom but it really was below par, rust all over the balcony, balcony table and chairs were rusted, discoloured and pealing, (you couldn't sit on them) the cabin stewardess didn't clean the room that well at all, Mirrors, TV, Surfaces were not cleaned, coffee cup marks still on tables after she had been into clean, bits on the carpet after she had supposedly vacuumed, very disappointing Read entire member review >>
We booked the a type H deck 2 outside cabin, same type we had last time. Looking at the AOS deck plans, we chose cabin 2338 because it was supposed to be the only one with a sofa-bed and we thought that this would be better than having 2 overhead beds for the kids. Alas, it is incorrect information as this room does not have a sofa bed. It does have a couple of overhead beds, so not big deal, just a small disappointment. Also, this room communicates with 2336 and as consequence, the 2 place sofa is replace by a single place chair. That was more annoying as we did not need the communicating room and the larger sofa was surely missed. Read entire member review >>
Room was fine but needs updating along with the bathrooms. There was enough hangars in the room. We were in the middle of the ship so the bumpiness wasn't bad at all. We had the same rooms last year. Read entire member review >>
Deck 2 is the lowest public deck and is divided into two sections. In order to get to the bow area of the ship from the stern area, one has to go up to deck 5 to get through. This was inconvenient.
This deck is noisier than upper decks but our cabin was very convenient to the elevators and the dining rooms. Read entire member review >>
We had an outdoor H class cabin on deck 2 (no balcony). It was perfectly ok. Small but there was space for clothes, we had a sofa to watch TV and 2 additional beds that hung from the ceiling on top of the main bed. The bathroom is surprisingly large, and the shower has hard plastic doors (no curtains). A single window behind the bed let us see the sea and an amazing sunset on day 3. Read entire member review >>
Oceanview Stateroom Category H Cabin Number 3242. close to the theater and the discotheque, this floor is that it does not have connections, you have to go to deck 5, so you can go from one side to another. Read entire member review >>
