The cabins are actually quite classy. They have a nice blue couch that looks like a couch and not a futon and very high end and innovative light fixtures. The size was good and the storage for things was EXCELLENT!. The best part about the cabin was the HUGE balcony which had three chairs. The worst part about the cabin was the bathroom which was a good size but a little dated and smelled not so good--like there was a sewer back-up in the recent past or something. Also there were shower curtains which made water go everywhere and they smelled moldy. RCCL should put doors on showers cause that would look nicer.

Cabin 7598
Now the cabin. We were assigned 7598 on deck 7. Never again and I wish when we booked this cabin, some advice would have been given about noise level.We are not night owls, but not total early people either. To have the level of music that was played until 11:30 p.m. every night was totally irritating. The cabin location was right outside the centrum and you could hear every boom boom like it was right in your room. I hope people will read this and think twice if they don't like to be up that late

Small, and our luggage did not even fit under the bed, like on other cruise ships. We kept it on the couch.

Cabin 9060
Love those days at sea! gocruisers212
Cabin 9060 is conveniently located halfway between the Centrum (route to dining room on Decks 4 and 5, and to Windjammer Cafe on 11) and aft (route to theater). Suitcases fit under the bed, and storage space is plentiful. As in most ships' bathrooms, the shower was designed for a skinny person. On the other hand, water pressure was strong. Avoid cabins too close to the Centrum; music lasts / blasts until 11 pm some nights.

Cabin 8124
Cabin size was fine. It was myself & my 3 adult children. 2 beds, open sofa, & pull down bunk over the beds. There really was plenty of space for 4 people, but you just have to pick up after yourself constantly and it works fine. Our cabin steward Rannell was terrific & well handled a room of 4.

Old and tiny rooms eastmountain
RCC has the smallest rooms of any cruise lines we have been on. You had to slide around the bed to get to the balcony or other side of the room. Their beds are horrible. Ours was worn out and sags in the middle. I asked for extra padding but that did not help at all. Woke up in pain daily. Another CC was told they have replaced about half of the mattresses. Their complaint was the bed were way too hard.

Beyond Amazing.... aclements25
Natalia did an amazing job everyday. Room was immaculate and the towel animals were a nice perk. Super friendly and helpful. You must have a room with a balcony. It's so peaceful to sit out there and read.

Not worth it... VegasGirl1108
Toilet broke twice, shower control panel had to be replaced on first day and shower drain plugged up flooding bathroom on day 5. A/C not very cold. Not a whole lot of storage cabinets. The size of the cabin was standard. Nice large window.

Cabin 9520

Our Cabin was clean and had lots of storage. We were forward, but the motion of the ship did not seem to be greater than elsewhere. I get mild seasickness and was fine in this forward cabin. Our Steward filled the ice bucket for us twice daily and was pleasant. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and reading or just watching the water go by.

Nice cabin with plenty of storage shelves, closet space and coat hangers. Small but adequate bathroom with a challenging shower.

Cabin 8086

The room was fine but the bathroom was very small. Everything in the room was the standard cruise ship fare.....Decent bed, lots of closet and drawer space, nice balcony. The only downside was the bathroom. It's very old fashioned compared to most ships these days. It's very small and the shower stall is the old, tiny plastic shower stall with the curtain that sticks to you during the shower and allows the floor to get soaking wet. I really wondered how a lot of the people on that ship were even able to shower. I"m an average size person and could hardly move in there. Many people today are huge and I don't know how they showered all week.

Cabin 8588

Cabin storage was fine. Closet had ample storage and luggage was stowed under the bed. We did take a power strip and used it at the desk.

Bathroom has a shelf below sink and storage behind mirror. Shower was small. We avoided the shower curtain issues by using binder clips – great advice from previous cruisers.

Hump Cabin 8588 (E1 Balcony) has a pie shaped slightly larger balcony and was conveniently close to elevators, Centrum and most dining. You could hear music and activities from Centrum each night until 11:30 pm. If you are sensitive to noise, take earplugs. Cabin 8586 had a huge balcony. Cabin 8590 had a tiny balcony.

Cabin 7534

This is one of the cabins forward on Deck 7 which have a balcony that is twice as large as other balcony cabins, however does not have complete privacy as privacy wall only extends 2/3 of the distance to the railing.

Cabin 9500

9500 - quiet location at the very end of the hall. Balcony slightly bigger because it juts out a bit. Cabin is small but adequate. Our kids were in the inside cabin directly across from us (9501) which was convenient. Because we were the last rooms in the hallway, we felt comfortable leaving our doors slightly ajar to go back and forth. The officers cabins were beyond the door at the end of the hallway but only occasionally would people come and go from this door.

Great Itinerary FLCRUISER007
View was partially blocked by the life boats. We were on the 7th floor and our room was directly across from the service room and pantry. Not quiet at all, but the noise was due to the crew, not other passengers. Hopefully this issue will be resolved for future cruises as the problem was brought to the attention of guest services and the floor management. We will carefully choose our staterooms in the future.

We had a bump-out room on Deck 7 which gave us more deck room. The bathroom smelled the first day or so but after being cleaned several times, it was better.

Cabin 8588
Cabin 8588 is a standard balcony room with an extra large balcony due to being on the "hump". Extra noisy, though, due to being directly off the Centrum area. Loud music every night until wee morning hours. Flat screen tv. Still had a shower curtain (not a door).

Cabin 1004
We were in room 1004. We had a balcony. The room was nice. We had quite a bit of fog on our cruise, so we were very close to the fog horn when it was sounding. Bring ear plugs just in case. The only complaint about the room was the flush on the toilet was worn and needed several pushes to flush. Other than that a nice room.

Cabin 8110

Stateroom E1 8110. Reasonably sized room but can feel cramped if all 4 occupants move around at the same time. Small loveseat converts into a sofa bed for one and there is a pull down bed from above the queen bed. Midship location, close to lifts and really to everything but quiet corridor despite obvious traffic. Great port views from the balcony.

We were at the back of the ship and had a larger deck than most (almost twice the size). Room was great; sheets and bedding fresh and soft, room was a little small, but overall, considering, I would say everything perfect.

Cabin 8352
We were in outside balcony cabin( They call it stateroom) 8532, and for the first 5 days when the weather and the sea state were not at its best, we had a terrible constant loud banging noise that kept us awake at night. If you use this ship avoid booking your cabin in this area of the ship for this reason.

Cabin 8630
Much Improved chas379
Cabin 8630 was a double with balcony. Adequate for 2 persons. Bathroom with shower cubicle only was a little cramped but served the purpose. Tea/coffee making facility provided but they have downgraded to supplying paper cups (to save on cost) what a mistake. Bedroom area could be curtained off from small sofa, but really this was only adequate for 1 person to sit on comfortably. But all in all it was OK . They have even upgraded TV to a flat screen LCD as opposed to old Bulky models

Cabin 8164
Cabin with obstructed view. Ladder on the right of our balcony but in front of the next cabin's deck. The view was o.k. Two single beds leaves less room to walk to deck. Great storage! Mini-bar handy for keeping leftover snacks and drinks. Very quiet area of the ship.

Cabin 9582
Cabin 9582 is a hump cabin which means that you can see both ways when you are on your balcony - it was near to the lifts and yet you hear no lift noise Balcony was not as big on that on Voyager of the Seas but immaculately clean, with enough space for 2 chairs and a table. Also we had tea and coffee making facilities in our cabin which was a real bonus - a kettle, tea, coffee, sugar, sweeteners and cups

Cabin 8604
Great balcony although didn't like the huge overhang but great view. Cabin was a lot smaller than other ships I have been on. I did like the bed closer to the balcony it gave us more room to get ready, it had a nice touch with a curtain to close off the bed. Situation is perfect close to the lift and stairs and on the hump with a huge triangular balcony.
