I have never been on a ship where I almost never talked with the cabin steward. I saw him however he rarely said hi. I talked more with the other room stewards in the hall. Our guy didn't update our room during our main dining room (5:45 - 7:45) on several nights. He asked us to leave the room so he could work.
Room was basic to RCCL. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is great. It is a good location, clean, with plenty of room and plenty of storage for the two of us. The balcony is larger than some competitors' balconies, and we really enjoyed that. Our cabin attendant was actually outstanding. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had a balcony overlooking the ocean, was a decent size, very clean and a good home from home. Any european travellers take note they do have 220V power so you can bring your own kit if you want (or use a EU adapter if from the UK). Read entire member review >>
This is a great cabin! Our room attendant Jackson was amazing. Very flexible about working around our daughters erratic nap schedule.
Love that we were so close to Park Cafe on deck 8 and just a few flights down from the kids clubs.
Very quiet, not much traffic at all. Recommend!! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very comfortable. We were midship do we dodnt feel we walked too far to the forward or aft elevators. There was lots of space to put our clothing and items. The balcony was nice and we spent lots of time out there. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was adjoining, which we did not realize. I would not recommend this type of room unless that is what you want, as you loose valuable space. We also usually get a room mid ship and port-side. This room was set up opposite of how we prefer, the bed is near the door and the couch near the balcony so the closet, because of the adjoining room was next to the bed. Total pain in the you know what trying to get clothes out. Hated it! Next time we will be more specific with our TA. Other than that, our room attendant was great, Mykoo. He was very good about making up our room after we left, both in the morning and evening. On the arrival day he introduced himself and told us of the hours he would be available on the deck and when he saw that we had wine, he ordered for us some wine glasses to keep in the room. He checked with us anytime he saw us to see if we needed anything special. hen we left he gave me a personalized book mark. Nice gesture from him. Read entire member review >>
Great Cabin. We had 3 in room. The couch is by the balcony and was made up every evening. Plenty of storage even for 3. 5 suitcases fit under bed, 3 full size and 2 carry on. Read entire member review >>
We booked a guaranteed cabin because Royal Caribbean did not have a Superior Oceanview Stateroom at the time we made the reservation but we were very lucky to get a very large and beautiful cabin. Read entire member review >>
I had room 6718; balcony.There are 2 entries into the ship from the hallways; same at every floor: front and back lobby. Here are the lifts and the stair cases. If you have the choice: get a room close to the lobby, any lobby; it will pay off, as you might have to walk up to 60 meters every time you get to your room.Level 6 is the lowest balcony level. It means that you don’t have to take any stairs (more than 1 level), to go to most of the things on the bottom of the ship. Level 8: park you can also do with stairs. If you are on level 10-13, you will have view from higher up; but every time you will need to take the lift to go to 15-16 (pools etc) or 5,6,8. Rooms are ok for 2 people. It might feel to small if you have children in the room. Balconies are fine: you can sit there with two people to enjoy the view or relax a bit; unless your neighbor smokes; because you’ll smell it.

We liked the room very much. We were near the elevator but never heard any noise. The seas were come and we only ever felt the gentlest of rocking. Generally we prefer midship or aft, this one was near the bow, but fine. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was larger than our balcony rooms on other Royal ships. Bed was by the balcony. Large closet and decent sized bathroom. Good view from the balcony. No noise heard in the hallway, but could sometime hear the TV on in the adjoining stateroom. 10th deck is a great deck to be on because the elevators were often busy, so you could easily walk down the stairs to the entertainment on decks 5 and 6. You could also easily walk up to the pool deck (deck 15). Read entire member review >>
There were 3 of us in this room and it was definitely crowded. Luckily we didn't spend much time in there and we tried to get ready in shifts whenever possible. The closet by the bed is very inconvenient. And it was impossible to keep the room tidy because there just wasn't enough room for all of our stuff. Thank goodness for the balcony! We had 3 rooms together for our group and requested the balcony dividers be removed - very convenient for visiting/borrowing someone else's shower ;-) The room would have been fine for just 2 people. Our room attendant - Floyd was very sweet and helpful. Read entire member review >>
Room 9710 - bed closer to door. Felt crowded when entering room. Hard to get to closet. Quiet and easy access to Central Park
Room 9712 - bed closer to balcony. Room felt more open and easy access to closet. Easy access to Central Park Read entire member review >>
After having several bad experiences with our cabin location on other cruises, I am very careful to check deck plans to see what is above and below me. If possible, try to avoid pool decks above. But definitely avoid nightclubs & theaters above OR below. On this cruise, we were in cabin 14304 (port side balcony, deck 14, below the putting green). If you like to get a little sun on your balcony, avoid deck 14. There is an overhang of about 10-12 feet that extends out and blocks the sun most of the day. Drop down to deck 12 or lower for a sunny balcony. We typically book Jr Suites, so this seemed small. However, the bathroom was somewhat larger than most other ships. There was also room under the bed for our largest suitcases. Very helpful! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small. We couldn't hide all of our luggage. Oceanview is unobstructed. If you are next to a smoker you will get it really bad. Linens were very nice though!! Check out the interactive TV. Awesome. Read entire member review >>
The Adventure Ocean staff while nice and friendly was not as loving and warm as our first cruise. We did receive great goodie bags from the program for the kids which contained a hat, a toy, and beach towel on the Read entire member review >>
We had a D-3 balcony cabin on deck 8 (8212). Storage under the bed and in the cabinets and closets were more than adequate for the 3 of us. It was a bit tight by the balcony when the couch was made up for sleeping, but the bathroom was nice and with the couch closed there was plenty of room to move around. It would probably be better if the main bed was by the balcony. Also the main bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in. (My wife wanted to take it home) Read entire member review >>
