Cabin 12622
The rooms are SMALL compared to other ships and the bathroom is TINY. I don't know how large people shower as I only weigh 165 and it was hard for me to get a shower. It was hard for my husband to maneuver around in the morning getting ready. The closet is adequate, not the largest we have seen. We actually bring our clothes on our own hangers so unpacking is easier but we had to move their hangers out of the closet. There is plenty of room for several suitcases under the bed. The balcony is ok, not large. If you have rooms next to each other, you can request the divider be removed so you share a balcony together. The quietness of the room is the absolute best we have EVER had on any trip, hotel or cruise. It is almost sound proof in your room. We didn't hear hardly ANYTHING the whole cruise. There is a hair dryer for ladies and a plug for men's razors. We were in cabin 12622 which was mid ship, perfect for us. This room is Starboard and we faced the land in every port. We did not let the room steward in all week so I don't know how well he would have done. I recommend you bring your toiletries in small travel sized bottles as the shower only has one shelf not really big.

Room was nice enough size and the fact that we could open our balcony with our friends next door was nice but, one morning around 4:30AM, they were power-washing the floors in the Solarium, one deck above, and scraping the deck chairs which were like fingernails on a blackboard. Very annoying.

Safety Concerns Maddylibby
The cabin was ok in size (outside balcony) - closet and storage areas very tight. This cabin was perfect for access for dining and public areas. Those with walking issues should choose aft - as the ship is very very long. Our attendant kept the room spotless.

Cabin 7548
We had a standard balcony room on deck 7 forward. Location was great as we didn’t have to walk a lot to get to needed places, inc tour mtg points which were normally forward. Oasis class balcony rooms are slightly smaller than those on other Royal ships so it was cozy for 2 but OK. Our cabin steward was great, very friendly and capable.

Cabin 10616
I was in Cabin 10616 on the Starboard side. This cabin was chosen very carefully as I wanted the bed by the balcony. I feel it makes the room feel a bit roomier when you walk in and when you have to get dressed. Some people prefer more room by the balcony and would probably prefer the other way around. The balcony was a bit smaller than the other ships (I felt anyway) but it was very enjoyable. I love the larger high table they have rather than the small ones on other ships. You could definitely put your breakfast and enjoy it. I sat out quite often and was so lucky to have quiet, considerate neighbors. I traveled solo so had more than enough storage but have to say that I think it would have been tight if I traveled with anyone else. I know there are hidden places that open for storage but I'm always afraid I'll leave something behind. The inroom safe was so small that I had to remove my Ipad cover in order to fit in my Ipad. Refrigerator worked well. Cabin attendant was good. Location was great, although maybe a little bit of a walk to the stairs (but helps walk off the immense amount of food I ate!) Cabin was in a very quiet area and have already booked the exact same one on a cruise next year.

Nice room. Balcony rooms always give you a feel of more room too. Service was great as usual. Top notch as always.

A Week to Remember Vince from Cape Coral

Great cabin with minimal walking to front elevator. Seventh level is good as to access to promenade and more YET low enough that the noise level from up top isn't heard.

The Simple Truth TheTruthCanHurt

balcony cabin cat d5 6584 starboard side
nice room. some obstruction from the life boats but that's true of almost the entire deck they stick out from almost every balcony but only if you are standing at the rail looking down, if you are sitting or lying in bed you don't see any obstruction at all. It really is no big deal.
Noise: I will say there is absolutely 100% noise from bolleros below. You hear the bass in the room from 10pm to 1 am. don't let any one tell you that you don't, because you do. even if the television is on, you feel the vibrations. Not the end of the world, but not well thought out by rccl. I would go about 5 rooms further aft and I think you would be fine.

Cabin 7208
#7208 was a good cabin, a tad far from the elevators, but very quiet. We had THEE best cabin attendant ever, Blanca from Poland...A/C worked real good and so did the shower...

Standard balcony met our expectations. We liked being between the centers of activity and we were near the stairs and the elevators.

Cabin 14622
Stateroom 14622 is smack dab in the center of the ship just below the pool deck. There is a large overhang above the balcony that block any noise from above. The stateroom is a catagory D5. The room was excellent as was the bathroom. One negative is because of the length of the ship, each time you leave your stateroom for the forward and aft elevators you have an long walk many times a day. Other than that the stateroom was excellent.

Cabin 8218
This cabin location was great. It was right in the middle on deck 8. So it did't matter what end of the ship I was on. I was always in the middle. It was just me in the cabin. I would say up to 2 people is it to be comfy. I do wish the balcony had a lounge chair. It was also very very quite. My bed was by the balcony. I was also very quite-I never herd a thing.

Closet was very small, surprisingly small. Did like that there a lot of hangers though, that helped a little. The bed was the most impressive part, very comfy and big, definitely a major plus in my book.

We had connecting cabins with outside balconies. Storage was very good. I was surprised that the third bed in one of our cabins was a pull-out sofa, which was not very comfortable, according to my daughter. Also, the only bathroom amenities provided were shampoo and soap -- no conditioner, body lotion, or shower gel. We were provided with conditioner upon request, but had to repeat our request during the weak.

Layout was great - bed near the balcony - not near the door. Good size closet with plenty of hangers. Centrally located on the ship- close to elevators, dining room, promenade, boardwalk, photo shop

Cabin 7610
Quiet location....was surprised that we did not hear noise in hall at any time. Closet was difficult to access as we had to climb between bed and closet. Would have enjoyed a few more drawers to put clothes. My husband seemed to use sofa to hold some things. I did like mirror near outside sliding door for natural light. I felt lighting in cabin and bath were very good. Also liked having outside cabin. With such a large ship you forgot you were on the water so good to be able to look out our cabin to see the ocean.

Cabin 9582
August 26th and 27th we had character breakfasts booked, one day shrek and the other day madagasca . I loved the chocolate pastries given before breakfast and we were suprised to get our same waiter for breakfast that we got for diner. The breakfasts were warm and delicious unlike the breakfasts in the dining rooms and buffets. Our cabin was in a far out location...too far from the food and everywhere but it was a very quiet place...we were in 9582 9th floor , oceanview balcony.

Cabin 6252
The short bar in the closet needs to be removed. A woman's large t-shirt drags on the floor in the closet. Night light in the bathroom was wonderful. Balcony for this room is great, direct view of water below and not a lifeboat. Next to hump balcony cabins, but this does not make this balcony bigger. This cabin is located next to suites and handicap rooms on deck 6. Excellent central location. I would take this cabin again.

great balcony , small cabin

Had a superior balcony - of average size for modern large cruise ships. They could have applied the benefits gained by the development of Solstice class cabin layouts on their partner cruise line, Celebrity, to provide that essential extra foot in width.
