First time in JS, we normally book GS, family or Crown Loft Suites, but all were sold out due to our last minute cruise decision. I highly recommend nothing less due to the amenities they offer. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was wonderful and in the perfect location. This cabin was on the port side bump out of the ship so the balcony was deeper. It was not too close or too far from the aft elevators and not near the service elevators the cabin stewards use so there was not a lot of noise. The storage in this cabin is incredible from the walk in closet to the enclosed shelving in the room. There was plenty of storage in the bathroom. The shower curtain could have been a bit longer though. Our cabin steward, Bob, was great. He did 3 towel animals, an armadillo, elephant, and a howler monkey. Very cool. Read entire member review >>
It was our first cruise so we didn't know how much we would be participating in onboard activities so I booked a junior suite. So worth the extra expense as it gave us room to move around and enjoy the space especially the balcony with lounge chairs, table and regular chairs. Read entire member review >>
The junior suite is great if you want some additional space and a loveseat. You definitely will not feel cramped in it. It has a walk-in closet, which is really nice and the bathroom has a full-size tub with a shower. The vanity has only a single lavatory. Yes, you do pay more than a standard balcony, Read entire member review >>
Beautiful, spacious room with a walk-in closet, tub/shower, ocean view balcony. Just right for our teens traveling with us. We had an awesome stateroom attendant named SUSIE! She was a real sweetheart and always kept our room clean. Read entire member review >>
This is the first time we have ever upgraded from a regular balcony to a Junior Suite. The cabin was fantastic. Really big, lots of storage (we didn't utilize 1/3 of it) walk in closet big enough to change clothes in, and a balcony big enough for a table and two chairs, PLUS 2 lounge chairs. The bed and linens were very comfortable too. Our cabin steward was really patient (we are late sleepers) and kept the cabin spotless. All requests (extra pillow, extra towels, etc were met with a smile.) I don't know if I can go back to a regular balcony cabin now. LOL Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Deck 7 Junior suite was a splurge this time for our anniversary. These are great rooms. The best feature for us was the walk in closet so you could store all your stuff. The bathrooms are upgraded with a shower/tub rather than just shower. You also get a small sofa and chair. The balcony has a small table and chairs as well as two lounge chairs so is much wider than the Balcony rooms. I can't seeing needing anything larger as this was perfect size for us. If I could afford it would spring for it again. Read entire member review >>
With two teenagers in tow, this was well worth the extra money for the walk in wardrobe & extra sq footage. Large balcony with table & chairs, plus 2 loungers…& a proper bath! Read entire member review >>
Loved the space and layout. The bathroom was great. If you have mobility issues you do need to be able to get in out of the tub for the shower. We thought bath products need improved. Loved our balcony good space and my neighbors were never out. Wow a walk in closet - wonderful. You don't get all those suite perks but we enjoyed the room. We were on the 12th floor and could walk up the stairs to the Solarium. Read entire member review >>
Room was nice with plenty of storage. King size bed and sofa bed. Balcony had table and two chairs. Because of early shore excursions we ate almost everyday room service breakfast on the veranda. Very nice. Interactive television was nice. Bathroom small only with shower but adequate. Overall not bad at all. Read entire member review >>
More closet and shelf/drawer space than I remember. No problems with unpacking clothes at all. Privacy curtain separated our granddaughter from us.
Clean as a whistle, made up on time, just use the door card, Do Not Disturb or Please Make Up Room.
Messages on the television are OK, but paper is better for things other than sales pitches so you do not miss anything.
Account Summary on television is OK and keeps you informed of what is being charged to you.
The television had a better variety than in the past.
Balcony was very nice and my spouse used it regularly.Bath tub as well as shower. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was beautiful, spacious, neat and clean. It had everything we could possibly want. The balcony was huge, on the hump, with a table, chairs and two loungers. We ate room service breakfast on the balcony one morning in Rome as there was no wind and it was sunny. I had thought it would be warmer on this trip than it was, and we'd get a lot of use of the balcony, but unfortunately, most of the trip was very windy and chilly. Read entire member review >>
Clean, tidy and adequate but much smaller than it looks in RCCL's pictures. Cheap looking furniture but plenty of storage space including a wonderful walk-in wardrobe. Also, very limited TV channels. Read entire member review >>
This room was in the middle of the ship with no blocked view. The new ship had more electrical outlets than previous ships. The bathroom was roomy. Beds were comfortable and storage was plentiful. Service was exceptional. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was spacious. The walk in closest was so large we did not need the drawers! Our attendant Hema Sterling was FABULOUS. Super Nice! The only negative comment was the a/c wasn't always cooling the space and at times the room got stuffy. Read entire member review >>
Very happy with Stateroom 8644 - mid ship from front to back and top to bottom. Very quiet - never head outside noise. Ship very smooth - never felt motion. Was a short distance to aft elevators and stairs. Very spacious suite, lots of storage - even a walk-in closet. The deck was larger than most as it was on the hump. It had 2 chaise lounges and a table with 2 chairs. This was on the deck with Central Park. Cabin Steward was excellent. Read entire member review >>
Great walk-in closet, though the door sticks and you have to slam it to shut it, which creates a decent amount of noise.
We heard absolutely no hallway noise.
Balcony is larger than the normal balcony and is well equipped with three tables and a chair.
This cabin includes a sleeper sofa, which was perfect for my 4yr old son.
Tons of storage, a bathtub, lots of extra space and a great closet make this a perfect room for our family of three. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8640 is a Jr. Suite with lots of room. It is located in the middle of the aft bump out on the starboard side. It is essentially as described on the RCL website. There is plenty of storage space with a walk in closet. Also lots of drawers to store items in. It has a nice bathroom with tub and shower. The balcony is spacious with two chase lounges and a table with two chairs. It is convenient to the Allure Central Park neighborhood as well as stairwells and elevators. Being on deck eight it is easy to use the stairwells to reach most decks other than to most upper ones. Definitely a prime piece of real estate. Read entire member review >>
Good location, good view, stateroom very quiet (some noise on balcony), room darkening drapes!!! Closet large enough for three large suitcases and lots of clothes, lots of storage, can store two large suitcases and two carry-ons under bed, very small refrigerator (smaller than dorm room), good-sized bathroom with tub, regular chairs (not lounge chairs) on balcony! Read entire member review >>
We had a junior suite (12236) on the Allure. We were blown away! Seriously ... a walk-in closet?? A full tub/shower?? A king-size bed (not queen)!!! I have nothing but good things to say about this cabin. I know not everyone can afford the suites (we splurged), but if you can .. just DO IT!! Read entire member review >>
Junior suite was large. Walk in closet was a huge benefit! BR small but efficient and love the tub in this suite. Balcony was huge with 2 lounge chairs, 2 chairs and a small table. Bed is very comfortable and we always sleep great on cruises! Also had a couch and chair for our evening cocktails in our room. Read entire member review >>
The Junior Suite is adequate in size and layout. However, the balcony, though easily able to accommodate a recliner, is equipped with simply 2 straight backed, uncomfortable chairs and a very small round table. How does this distinguish the balcony on the JS from that of any other balcony cabin? Read entire member review >>
