The room is small.... if you have to open up the couch for a second bed, there is NO room to walk around.
The balcony is a generous size - totally happy with the balcony.
The bathroom is what you would likely expect. The shower is very small, but it is ok when you are there for just the week.
Cabin service by our room attendant was fabulous!!!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin needs a make over, stain on soft, holes in curtain, wind comes in through the door handle on the balcony, TV didn't work correctly and some stains in the bathroom - showing the age. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice. Bathroom was on the small side compared to DCL and NCL Escape. Bed was buy the closest. Plenty of hangers. No outlets by the bed. Whole cabin only 3 outlets on the desk. Fridge was nice and cold. Close to elevators. I found the bed hard. Surprised there was no tissues in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Adequate for two, but no more than two. Limited storage. Balcony just has two chairs and a small round table. No lounge chairs or footstools. So, if balcony is important to you, you will be disappointed. Shower, no tub. One sink. Closet and shelf space minimal. Bed is very comfortable and bedding is nice. Virtually no amenities. Must ask for conditioner, etc. A very average to below average cabin. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. The bed is next to the balcony instead of the bathroom which makes the cabin feel roomier and makes it easier to get in and out of the closet. This cabin is on the back of Park Café so I was concerned about noise in the AM but the room was absolutely quiet and I'm a light sleeper so I would have heard any noise but I slept great. Would definitely choose this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
The cabins were of standard cabin design and size. One feature I was glad to have was a glass shower door. I enjoyed not having a curtain blowing in.
I had to call maintenance twice to fix the flush on the toilet as it was not operating. They maintenance staff arrived within five to ten minutes both times. Read entire member review >>
3 of us shared this room. Not as small as I thought it would be but when you do have the couch pulled down, it was hard to get around to get to the balcony. We were able to cram all of our stuff in there and put our bags under our beds. Definitely bring Poo-Pourri if you are sharing since the bathroom is crammed in there as well.

No complaints. John was great, the room was great, there was plenty of space in the closet and drawers for the three of us and the balcony was perfect. No obstructed views or anything like that. We felt a little bit of motion a few nights, but nothing extreme. I think it actually made my son sleep better. Read entire member review >>
I think it was a D4 but can't be sure as am not where I can check. Great location fairly close to the elevators, close to Park Place, easy to the Amber Theater and the ICon Grill we would walk through Park Place if we wanted to get to the other end. Would have liked the closet a little better was a bit hard to get the clothes no drawers just shelves but it worked for 12 days. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was slightly forward of amidships on the starboard side. While nicely appointed, the 184 square feet seemed somewhat small and cramped. The balcony was smaller than those of other RCL ships on which we have sailed. The bathroom was very small and the shower tiny. For as large a ship as is the Allure, we thought the cabins would be somewhat larger. The cabin was very quiet, however; and the stateroom attendant was excellent. Read entire member review >>
Rooms were really nice. The difference with this one is that insead of bunk beds for 3rd and 4th it was a hide a bed. That worked out nice. The room was always clean and fresh. Plenty of room especially for a cruise. Read entire member review >>
We were lucky enough to have an "accessible" state room, as it was not needed by anyone. I will probably never have that much space again on board a ship, but hey, I did this time. It was enormous, well designed, extremely comfortable. What else need be said? Read entire member review >>
14694 Generally bigger than we're used to so we were happy. The bathroom also was bigger than previous ships we've been on. The balcony was adequately sized. We saw the room next to us (14692) had a metal plate bulkhead blocking their view towards the bow. We were glad to be where we were.
Also this room had no noise from above or below. It was convenient to the pool deck one floor up and the windjammer which was two floors up. A lot less need for the elevators and easy access to soda refills (yes I used the soda plan). Read entire member review >>
Room a good size with many storage spaces. Suitcases fit under the bed. The oceanview balcony worth the $. The room was in a good location near the elevators (but not right beside the elevators). Read entire member review >>
Our cabin had a large closet with lots of hangars, and the bed was very comfortable with their newer linens. The balcony was quite nice, but the Allure has so many balconies that noise from one bleeds over to the nearest 20 other balconies, so privacy on the balcony is minimal. The room is 'tight' meaning you have to squeeze by your partner to get around, but it has a full couch, a flat screen interactive TV, and a nice dressing table. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 8302 on the port side, deck 8 and it was a great location. There was plenty of hangers for your clothes and plenty of storage space for all of our other clothes. The only thing I found inadequate was the small shower.
If you are a large person you would have a hard time fitting into it. Read entire member review >>
7270 - location was great because it was only ever one floor away from Central Park, Boardwalk, Dining Room or Promenade. It was also right by the elevator / stair bank, so there was never a lot of walking. Great storage space, balcony was nice, very little noise. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8286, Superior View w/balcony. About the same size as other RCI ships. Biggest note is that every other one is laid out opposite with bed near balcony or near closet. The later is hard to get around and to dress. A/C was good, but one member of our party next door had nothing but trouble with theirs, and received only a token adjustment, in my mind. Large flat screen TV. Remote didn't work all the time. Small fridge not cold at all. Bed peaked in the center where the two were connected, but large and I slept well. Able to open balcony connecting partitions with other party members, vey nice touch. Not noisey even though on the same level as Central Park area. Actually rather convenient to that and other areas, not too far from elevators. Overall, we enjoyed it. Read entire member review >>
Center of ship. It is the third balcony row from the top. There is no room directly across it. Not a lot of traffic since it is in the center. Plenty of storage. Small sinks as they all have. Balcony is standard. Higher rails on this ship. Flat screens with a refrigerator. Duel ipod outlets. Great room. Read entire member review >>
Cabins -- we all had D4 outside balcony cabins. We thought they were smaller than on the Voyager class but the bed is bigger (wider actually -- more like a king than a queen) which was nice. Glad we got the girls their own cabin. It would be very tight with 4 people in a cabin. There is plenty of storage but it is all at a right angle and seems hard to use. Read entire member review >>
Room 6710 is on deck 6 with the boardwalk. We had a balcony room and my estimation would be directly even with the carousel. We never heard the noise from the boardwalk. The doors were very heavy. The view was very nice. The layout of the room is good with a child. Your bed is in the front of the room and the sofa bed is in the back of the room towards the balcony. Having family in the adjoining room, we were able to of course then go into the next room or go out and not worry about disturbing out sleeping child, so it's a nice set-up for a parent.

SOOOO SMALL! Loved the location - out of the way enough you didn't hear people walking by all night. but i found the cabin to be so small and the bathroom/shower ridiculously small. We kept joking "so this is how they fit 6000 people on board" - Read entire member review >>
The stateroom had plenty of storage space, as well as lots of room under the bed for luggage. A mini bar, as well as vanity in the main room. Bathroom also had plenty of space, absolutely no complaints there! Our attendant was Vincent, he was so chipper all the time, as were all the staff we encountered! We got to know our room attendant well, which was wonderful for any questions we may have had. Read entire member review >>
Room deck 6 balcony rooms - adjoining with room for our 3 girls 19, 17 and 11. Were fine and comfortable. Annoying that the adjoining door was locked for 1st 2 hours of arrival which meant a hassle to unpack (had to wait for a Supervisor). Check the shampoo containers as ours was empty and we had to wait 1.5 hours for it to be filled! Big drag on a formal night. The dress code in the dining room is \very loosely\ followed. Also couldn't enjoy balcony as we were surrounded by smokers. If you book a joint room for your kids - ask Stateroom attendant to leave all materials in your adult room - we found coupons and compass details upon departure that our kids never even looked at - many missed opportunities.

12218 - a great cabin with privacy on the balcony. We liked the design of the bathroom with a small vanity and circular shower. Gave the impression of more space inside. I would recommend they put a curtain between the bed and sitting area to darken the ambient light within the room/under the door, and to allow TV watchers not to disturb sleepers.
