Unusually late and LOUD music and entertainment during the president's cruise, but otherwise, a wonderful location and great views.

The cabin was plenty large for two people. I"m sure i'd have felt differently if we didn't have two rooms for the 4 of us. My son is 18 and 6ft 1 and my 10 year old and him fight a lot. We used many of the tricks found here on the message boards such as hooks for the walls to hang our cruise passes on, and the shoe storage space saver for over the bathroom door and felt like we had plenty of room.

Some Reasons To Go By: talljaycruiser
Good view of Aqua Theater (but lower would be a little better). We could sit and watch shows (after we cleaned our balcony glass). Long walk to anywhere. :)

A ship of wonders By: legaljen1969
The cabin was a little small, but plenty of space and good flow for the amount of time one spends in the cabin (not much for us). The décor is beautiful. The layout is great. If you have an iPhone any newer than a 4- you need to plan to bring a lightning adapter if you want to the charger/clock/radio. There are the usual things that people "complain about"- the space tube shower, the hair dryer. Both present and accounted for. I did like the shower gel, lotion, shampoo and soap in our cabin. Nice little travel size amenities. Smelled nice too.

Trip of a Lifetime By: cruiseaddict555
Great Cabin with plenty of space if you use the space well! Just don't overpack and you'll have enough room for everything. The Cabin Stewards were great and helpful, always came around to keep our room clean, as well as kept an eye out for when we left our room so they could pop in and tidy up. I definitely recommend the Boardwalk View, I felt like I could always see any events going on but I could still see the Ocean. It was never too loud with any of the performances going on.

This cabin is at the very aft of the ship. It was a mistake to choose this cabin. I thought that we would have a good view of the aquatheater from the balcony, but we could only see the aquatheater if we leaned out over the railing. The distance from the foot of the bed to the wall was only 1 foot. The sofa bed was closest to the balcony. When the sofa bed was made up, there was only about 4 inches between it and the desk, making the desk unusable and making it impossible to access the balcony. There was less than a foot between the bed and the closet. Once the sofa bed was made up, there was no floor space to move around. The ship is 1180 feet. The main theatre was at the other end of the ship. Unlike other ships, where we walked leisurely from place to place, each adventure out of the cabin was like a forced march. We did not do much exploring, there simply wasn't time. Overall there was not enough storage room for 3 people, 2 of whom were children. There was a hair dryer in one of the drawers.

Cabin 10323
Jan 2016
The room is 182 sq ft with a 52 sq ft balcony - pretty average for a cruise ship balcony room. It just happens to have an awesome view that not all rooms have. The room includes a sitting area with a couch and table, private bathroom, hair dryer, TV, radio, phone, mini refrigerator and safe in the closet. Our room was the perfect size for our little family of 3. Our stateroom attendant even had a pack n' play brought in for my daughter. We had the option of keeping it in the room all day or they offered to remove it when we woke up. We opted to keep it in our room all day so she could nap in it. They even provided a little pillow and sheets for her. To my surprise, once the balcony door was shut, you hardly heard a peep from outside the room. Occasionally we would hear a noise from the Boardwalk but it was fine. THE BATHROOM I felt that the bathroom was the perfect size for our family. The shower was quite large for the size of the bathroom. The sink area was a little small but that is to be expected on a cruise ship. If I were to change one thing about the bathroom it would be to remove the glass shelf above the sink to allow easier access to the sink. STORAGE IN THE ROOM Our room had a large closet with plenty of hangers for our clothes. There were also quite a few shelves in the closet for addition storage along with a safe. The bathroom had quite a bit of storage for our toiletries. There was a dresser/shelving unit near the TV. This was great for all of our clothes that didn't need to be hung. The shelves were great for storing all of Charlotte's toys and food. The mini refrigerator was perfect for what we needed. We kept some baby food and drinks in it. We were able to fit all of our luggage under the bed to keep it out of the way. It took us a few days to realize this but it sure did free up quite a bit of space, as you can imagine. The room had a few other little shelves for small items such as your room card, sunscreen, etc.

Small room with an even smaller bathroom but a very generous balcony which was great to watch the water show from. The television was so poor that you could take it out and never miss it. I was worried that it would be noisy but it wasn't. We have basically booked the same room straight across from this for the Harmony of the Seas on December 3rd, 2016.

Allure of The Seas By: moonlight777
First, our cabin was a balcony overlooking the boardwalk. We had a Pullman which allowed our teen son a bed of his own. The room was spacious with a lot of storage. Our room attendant was fabulous and tended to our every need. We slept well, no noise and you did not know that you were on a ship. Our other guests had ocean view rooms but I liked our room better, I watched a few shows from my balcony playing at the Aqua Theater.

Nice room at the end of the ship which makes for a long walk. Gives you a view of the boardwalk to people watch, the aquatheater to get a preview of shows or watch performers practice, or watch the ocean. The balcony is covered overhead by a bridge, so you won't get a lot of sun on this balcony. The room itself is nice, enough room for me and my wife to be comfortable. It was clean and up to date.

Excellent. Hairdryer included. Shampoo and bar soap only - so take your own toiletries. Otherwise comparable to a good hotel room - large queen size bed, good lighting, sofa and coffee table, TV with disney channel movies, beds made 2x daily and room service fast.

A good size cabin. Enough space for storage. The suitcases fitted under the bed. The balcony was very nice. There was always something to see. We loved this more than oceanview for 12 days....When the door was closed you couldn't hear anything from outside. Very quiet. Our television didn't work, we told our room attendant Duval and one hour later we got a new televisionset. Great!

We loved our cabin. On first impression, it looks just like every other Royal Caribbean balcony stateroom. However, we had the last balcony stateroom, closest to the Aquatheater, so we had great views of the Boardwalk, Aquatheater, and the aft ocean view. It was the best of it all!

Not as good as the last time By: Suncoast Gal
Our room attendant was very nice but when I have to continually ask for a plastic bucket with 2 wine glasses that never came I just gave up and got it myself on my daily travels. She did bring 2 metal containers with ice that melted way before dinner. Sometimes I go with the flow, which I did here, but I can things sliding downhill already.

The cabin was small but what cabin on what cruise ship is huge unless it's a suite. It was accommodating and the bed was comfortable. Flat panel TV, iPod player (if you like that sort of thing), mini frig, sofa. Quite nice.

We loved this cabin because of all the activity we could see from the balcony; we could also see the ocean behind the ship. But if you're looking for quiet, you should look elsewhere; things get quite noisy on the Boardwalk at times. The cabin door does do a pretty good job, though, of muffling the sounds. The bed was very comfortable. The total lack of amenities other than soap in the bathroom was a bit puzzling. The shower, though small, was nice. The sink was absolutely midget in size. The facial tissues and toilet paper were so thin and cheap you had to use at least twice as many as you would have had the quality been sufficient; this seemed liked a "penny wise, pound foolish" decision.

May 2013
We had a Boardwalk balcony room on the 11th floor (#11323) and liked it. It was great to see folks below on the boardwalk as well as see out the back of the ship and also see most of the water show theater. Rooms are very quiet and the only time we had noise was when the aqua show went to midnight. Very comfortable king bed but it was a smaller room and the closet was awkward to use as the doors were right next to the bed. Our room steward was efficient and pleasant.

Allure = Wow Factor By: hubofhockey
Cabins 11323 & 11325 We had these two Boardwalk Balcony Cabins. They are the third and fourth from the AFT on the port side of the ship. They have great views of Ocean as well as the action on the Boardwalk. Shutting balcony doors tight eliminates most of noise, but you can still hear some noise on the first three nights of the cruise up to 11:30 pm, last show of Ocean Aria. It is not much of an issue and prefer these cabins to ocean view balcony as you still get views of the ocean and more.

Room is fourth from the end of the ship, so it is a long walk from the elevator lobby. We had a good view of the Aqua Theater and watched the show from our balcony several times. It was also nice being able to watch the activities on the boardwalk. We were able to see the water well enough to see the sea conditions. Rita's tended to be pretty noisy until about 11:00 at night, but when the balcony door was locked, the seal kept the noise to a minimum.

Boardwalk view with balcony great for watching people and aqua shows, but can be a little noisy at night. Central park balconies much quieter, but no ocean view. You can see the ocean from the ships stern on the boardwalk balconies.

Great Cruise and Crew By: ChucknSue
Cabin 11705 Boardwalk Balcony Great location. Could see the Boardwalk and Aqua Theater easily. Noise was not a problem. Balcony on the small side, but usable. Cabin is too small, particularly considering price and location. We could barely get around the end of the bed. One or two more feet in width would have made this cabin more enjoyable. There are only a hand-full of Junior suites on decks 12 & 14 pinned in the corner overlooking Dazzles. Cabin was well laid out but no drawers under nightstands-terrible oversight. Shelves next to mirror over the desk were too small, almost unusable. Loved the shower with curved door instead of curtain. Hated the minimal/oval wash basin. Too small to wash face or shave without splashing water on the floor and person using it. What design 'genius' thought of putting a glass shelf 9 inches above the wash basin? Couldn't avoid splashing of water and hitting forehead on the shelf when washing my face. Cabin attendant explained only the cabins designed for more than two occupants had such an arrangement. I was constantly looking for a hammer!

- Good view of aqua theater, zip line, rock-climbing, and good view of ocean to rear. - This cabin has a door to allow it to become an adjoining room. The door offers very little sound isolation. - This cabin has the bed by the balcony (every other cabin has bed either by balcony or bathroom). - Mostly isolated from any noise on the boardwalk, and it's very quiet at night. - No privacy on balcony. - Usually shady on balcony, though some sun during the day. - You don't smell the restaurants on the boardwalk (Johnny Rockets or Rita's)

We had Balcony Cabin overlooking the Boardwalk. Both my wife and I did not think the cabin was too small. We packed enough clothes and everything seemed to fit nicely into the closet, drawers, and cubbys. Out balcony was nice; we had a table and two chairs; they were made of plastic; Great view; we could see all the activity on the Boardwalk, watch the Aqua shows, and we had a nice view off the back of the ship. With the balcony door opened it can get noisy, if there is stuff going on down on the Boardwalk. When u close the Balcony door it quiets down; but u do not get rid of all the noise. Peeping Toms; people say thay u can see across the Boardwalk into someones cabin. If your curtains are open, then yes you can, with the sheers pulled, u can not really see unless you have high powered glasses. With curtains and sheers closed; u will not see anything. U will see people sitting on their balconies in bathrobes and swim wear.

Amazing view of Aqua Theater. Room was well appointed, balcony was a little small, but had table and chairs. Ample closet space, but sofa blocked part of the door (sliding doors) until we rearranged a little. Lots of little storage areas. Bathroom was very upscale, shower had sliding doors. Only problem (and it was minor) was that being at the end of the hallway we tended to get "made up" last. We also did not get to know our cabin attendant as well as on past cruises, since we were probably last on her list. Definitely would try to get one of these end cabins. To be able to watch the shows, and the perspective of the divers was awesome.
