6244 -- was very nice , balcony, it was directly across from the elevators forward was very easy to get too. the closet was adequate, could of used more shelves, also could have used a light switch by the door for the lights over the bed, could only turn off at the light, otherwise this was a very nice cabin with a great view.  Read entire member review.

Great Cruise by avideastcoastcruiser

We always get a balcony. This room seemed a bit smaller than balconies on the Freedom, Oasis and Allure. Balcony door was harder to maneuver as it is an older style. The tv was very old. This was more important to my husband than to me but worth mentioning. I also think due to the age of the ship the bathroom vent was not as great as I felt the bathroom was slightly stinky.

Cabin #7634. Good location, but across the hall from a staff room where supplies were kept. It got a little loud sometimes. The room was spacious, lots of room for all our stuff, and the balcony was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable to sleep in. The bathroom was small, but the two of us could fit in there to get ready.  Read entire member review.

Third Cruise, the Charm by CruiseRookey
Balcony was small but adequate. Close to aft elevators and library. Shower stall plenty big enough for my 300+ pounds. Access to balcony a little tight aroung bottom of bed. Room very quite, had to open door to hear public anouncements. Storage spaces, closet and dresser drawers plenty large enough.  Read entire member review.

Balcony cabin, category D2 on deck seven was large enough for two or three people with plenty of closet and ample drawer space. The bathroom was the right size for what it's used for. Good for two adults and one child, but no more. Balcony perfect fit for two or three, with great views. Solid privacy and ectched glass divider panels on balcony. Conversations not private. Location is port, aft side of ship (left and rear). Closer to rear of ship than to Centrum Elevators. No noise from heard from others cabins.  Read entire member review.

8332
Cabin 8332 a D2 balcony cabin, on starboard side. Great location very near the aft elevators. Just behind the 'hump' which limits your view forward, but there is no other obstruction looking down or aft. Occasional thumps heard-not sure if it was from another cabin or what, but all in all, on a scale of 1-10 for quietness, I would give it a 9. Nice sized balcony as well. 2 chairs and 1 low table. One wall was sold metal, and the other was a partition. Didn't really hear any noise from neighbors.  Read entire member review.

Nice cabin, needs to upgrade the old TV's. Nice balcony but not so private. Clean but a little worn from age.  Read entire member review.
8352
Overall generally good location. Very clean and in good shape. Felt and heard the engines a great deal more when under full power than we did in other aft cabins.  Read entire member review.

Enough space under bed to store large piece of luggage. Very quite - never heard anyone else! 8th floor was very convenient to everything. 3 floors down for dinner, 3 floors up for pool...we walked everywhere versus the elevators  Read entire member review.
8528
8528 is a great cabin. The cabin was sufficient in size and the balcony was a wonder.ful addition. The only problem we had was that the bathroom door was missing a few screws and would stop you from closing it. Antonio was our room steward and he got this fixed early in the cruise.  Read entire member review.

We had 3 cabins in our reservation 8652, 8666 and 8664. All of the cabins were virtually identical. Very spacious and having lovely balconies these rooms were towards the back of the ship on the starboard side (I may be wrong about that but I am pretty sure) When you are docked in NJ there is a lovely view of the Statue of Liberty and when in Bermuda our balconies did face the dockyard! Very lovely. There was ample closet and drawer space.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 8952. Great quiet location. Well soundproofed - I didn't hear anything from cabins on either side and thought they were unoccupied until I saw luggage outside them the last night! I was a single, but there would have been plenty of space for two.  Read entire member review.

Wonderful Cruise by luvscruising2007
Our cabin was close to both sets of elevators so very little walking was needed. There was more than enough storage space. The showers were like a tube and had rounded doors and no curtain. Balcony was nice but had a solid fire wall on one side and the usual divider on the other side. Salt collects on the railing and the clear glass but it was cleaned the 2nd or 3rd day and remained clean the rest of the cruise. It was a very quiet cabin and would book it again.  Read entire member review.

cabin 9346 had no issues, everything worked fine, we over-packed and still had lots of space available. round shower stall, no curtain, plenty big even for me, not a small person. no noise, nice size balcony that we did not use much. My sister had cabin 9348, right next to us and had issues with wet carpet every time shower was used. for the first 6 days they kept bringing in a big floor dryer for hours at a time....it did nothing to help but it caused a lot of noise. Cabin had a musty odor, she had to keep balcony door open to get rid of smell. on day 6 maintenance showed up, re-caulked shower stall and it fixed the problem. My niece had cabin 9347, inside cabin across from us. no issues with this cabin.  Read entire member review.

Very nice stateroom. Good closet space, enough for all our clothes, including two suits and a wedding gown. Bathroom quite adequate, with a good shower. The bed was quite comfortable. The balcony was big enough for a romantic time, with a nice view. It was generally quiet, though with an occasional thundering herd of kids going by. TV needs an upgrade: still using CRT TV in the staterooms.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 9364:
Outdated furniture and very worn carpet. Slight smell to the room. Rust in the bathroom and a lot on the balcony. Caused a stain on a shirt. Be careful where you lean. On a good note, it was one of the few rooms that had a flat screen TV.

RC needs work by everyday gorgeous
The cabin was nice, spacious.. no issues other than they decided to do maintenance on the hot water heaters at 9am in the morning and did not get to take a shower until later that day.. not really smart,  Read entire member review.

Cruisin to Bermuda...... by scojodtrvln11
Good location. Bed very hard. Stains on couch. Water temp in shower changes from cold to hot sometimes. Room missing room service menu in book (ripped out).  Read entire member review.
9682

The room was good - when we got there we overlooked the statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan but upon arriving back to Bayonne we overlooked port. Not sure why they changed directions. We liked the location - away from the elevators but close enough to either bank. We were on the same floor as the Concierge Club making that coffee or drink easy.

Ringing In 2012 by WAYLIN
We stay mid ship near the forward elevators on deck 7 0r 8 in a D class balcony stateroom which is a little larger than E class.The closets are adequate,the drawer space limited in the desk/dresser.Our luggage can be stored under the queen size bed which frees up closet space.The balcony was private,both walls were metal rather than opaque glass.The only complaint is the bed on the sliding door side is really close to the window and hard to pass getting in and out of bed especially if it's rocky.The forward elevators go directly to the dining rooms which is convenient.  Read entire member review.

Fall Color and Weather by GilroyGarlic
Lots of storage, old TV sets, hard bed, well equipped bathroom but with a little rust near shower and floor. Large balcony but the outside doors no longer can be opened to adjoining cabins if cruising with other family or friends. The cruise staff said there were "too many problems."  Read entire member review.
