Cabin 2292 was an ocean view window. The carpeting had coffee stains from several past cruises and the irony was that the crew was replacing the carpeting two doors down. The toiletries were a bar of soap and a push button all purpose lotion in the shower. It was no noisier than most cabins on the second floor. Initially the cabin was very difficult to find because one has to go up to the fourth floor to cross over and take the elevator down. Then the "You are here" signs were not accurate. Nowhere was our cabin room mentioned on the signs. The first night it took us 45 min. to find the room despite the fact that we asked several crew members for help and I was an Eagle Scout. The secure location did limit the hallway noise. The room was cleaned every day and our cabin attendant was great.

A lovely time by patpme
We were in an ocean view category H room on deck two. One of the "cheap seats," the room, though small, was clean and tidy. Despite being in the bowels of the ship, it was very quiet at night as well as during the day -- we had no trouble with unwanted noise from the location however our room was an adjoining one and that meant that we heard a lot of what was going on in the next cabin and we had only a small chair rather than a love seat in the room.  Read entire member review.
Made our own fun! by CedarvilleGirl
Great location, right by the elevators. Glad we had a low deck for the rough seas! Broken light fixture by bed that was rigged and looks terrible. Great housekeeping staff! Two pull down bunks overtop of queen bed. "Mind your head". Angle of TV makes it difficult to watch from bed.  Read entire member review.

Basic oceanview cabin towards the back of the ship. Very quiet hallway, short walk to the elevators. Decent bathroom, closet space. Plenty of storage space in the bathroom, and in the desk/vanity table.

Clean and fairly quiet. It is quieter higher up but the plus side is you feel less motion down low. The bathrooms are small, even by cruise ship standards. The room itself is adequate sized. Not much hallway traffic, other than guests on this deck. Descent size room.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 2644 is a quad cabin. My wife, two daughters (16 and 12), and I managed to fit everything we brought with us in the cabin. We found that bringing extra hangers for the closet and a shoe rack for the inside of the bathroom door helps to fit everything. Instead of storing my Izod type shirts in a drawer, I hung them on hangers which saved drawer space. My advise to those in our situation is to hang as many things as possible. We ended up with one and one-half shelves each in the closet and one and one-half drawers in the desk for other clothes that couldn't be hung. We stored all the suitcases under the beds and used them to hold dirty clothes. We decided to separate the twin beds and put them against the walls under the upper pull down beds.  Read entire member review.

Bathroom (like most on ships except Disney) is like a closet. I hate the shower as the water temperature varies and there is no way to turn it on without getting soaked by cold water. Ship was pretty quiet. We both slept like babies.

1st time cruiser by Ccckreed

Our cabin on deck 3 was quiet, we didn't hear any noise. Our stateroom attendant Danny was great. Rooms were clean, had plenty of storage. Bathroom is small but we didn't have any problems. Make sure you have attendant remove items from frig so the kids don't eat the as they are expensive. Beach towels are available on deck 11 by the bar. We were near THE PALACE which was handy for the shows.

Honeymoon From He** by va_couturegirl
Fine for two. Quiet location. Close to elevator. Straight up to spa and fitness.  Read entire member review.

9216 - nice room, extra space but for what? oddly shaped. Very quiet, I believe part of the bridge was above us. Typical RCI room

Low bunk beds - may hit head while getting up. No stationery in room (pens). No ice bucket. PA system cannot be heard in room. Tiny bathrooms. Stains on carpet. Old bulky CRT TVs.
