Loved the cabin. No complaints. People told us they were small, but we had 3 people in our room (one on the couch) and had no issues. Slept better than we have ever slept, may be because of the rocking of the ship or the darkness of having no outside window. But for whatever reason, it was wonderful!
Also, our room attendant, Bruce was super! Read entire member review >>
This cabin is not just smaller than a standard cabin it is missing some of the bells and whistles that normally come with an Allure of the Seas cabin making it very basic. No ipod station, no room service breakfast menu, no Royal Caribbean book (with full room service menu), etc. The wardrobe is half the size of a standard cabin and there is a chair instead of a sofa. Honestly the cabin would be better without the chair because you can't get into the wardrobe without dragging the heavy chair out of the say. There are no drawers except for a very small one in the bathroom, a few cupboards with shelves but no drawers for little bits and pieces. The bed when it is made up as a double is against the wall on one side so I would recommend that if you stay in this cabin you ask for the beds to be separated. This room is adequate but honestly pay the extra and go for a standard size room Read entire member review >>
I always choose an interior room. I like dark when I sleep so this is a perfect choice for me. Also, I prefer to spend my money on other things, my room is to shower and sleep! Read entire member review >>
Small, interior cabin. Very clean, well-organized, with hair dryer and plenty of outlets and charging stations. Beds high to allow storage of very large suitcases underneath. Bathroom efficient, water pressure and temperature good. Bed very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Our room service was just amazing and thanks to Earnest Romero for taking good care of the room and basic needs, children truly loved and appreciated the variety and shapes of towels he made each night! We also liked the overall friendliness of the staff except for a few who seemed cold, especially when beverages were ordered. Read entire member review >>
Stayed on the 7th floor on the dining room end at the rear of the ship. Liked our location, close to the promenade, boardwalk and dining room. Hated the closets. Bathroom is okay as well as the rest of the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin seemed smaller than the interior cabin we had on Freedom of the Seas. The bathroom and room decor was more attractive on Freedom and there were more cubbyholes for storage on Freedom. The closet door was a constant pain, seemed hard to open and close. Turns out we did not have the cruise guide book with room service menu in it until our steward found one in another room. Gives a tacky impression that we had to ask for robes, lotion, body wash and conditioner. Carnival provides all of these w/o guests having to ask. BUT our room was VERY convenient location-wise. Neighbors only on one side and we could easily walk down stairs to Royal Promenade or Boardwalk and from the Promenade easy to walk down one more flight to Entertainment theaters.

Room 8553 - basic inside stateroom. We've booked large balconies on cruises before but found that it was a waste of money for us because we are literally NEVER in the room, always doing some sort of activity or show, or EATING! Inside stateroom had couch, queen size bed, basic shower, flat screen TV... nothing out of the ordinary that you would expect from a cruise ship. Read entire member review >>
Great location! We were steps away from the elevator, central park, and just about everything we needed.
The room size is standard, closet space is limited (had to get creative when unpacking) Read entire member review >>
Better configuration of the two that they used. The bed is against the back wall instead of in the middle of the room. 3 outlets on desk, plus one below it. Hair dryer, built in clock and IPod dock. Built in night light in bathroom. Read entire member review >>
