The cabin was well positioned and had all of the requirements of a cruising patron. The bathrooms are VERY small and the showers even smaller!! The final night comedian made quite a good part of the show about the size of the showers. Our Stateroom Attendant Michael Ashmeade was excellent and helpful at all times. Although we didn't use our balcony much as the weather was cooler than anticipated, it was nice to have access to a balcony whilst in port.

6334 6439

6334 was a perfect stateroom location. It is mid ship just aft of the hump. a short walk to the stairs and aft elevators. (the aft elevators have 8 total elevators, all were working this trip.. the forward elevators have 6.
the room was in very good shape, small rust areas on balcony, some wear in the shower doors but we had no complaints. We loved the location as we mostly used the steps for all activities in the dining room, theater, casino, promenade and bars. we only took the elevator to the Windjammer and Dizzy's and this was very convenient because the elevators were inaccessible after the shows and we could walk and avoid waits.
the other great thing about this room's location was that it was mid ship, so during rocky seas we had less movement. One other thing to note was our door looked straight out into the interior access hallway that had some increased traffic with attendants and people. If our door was open we had to make sure the other person inside was descent.

6439 was an interior room where my three children stayed, it had two regular beds and two pulllmans. (they came down from the ceiling) It was in good shape and we had no complaints. the muster station for this room was D18( outside on 4th floor) and for 6334 was D21.(4th floor dining room )

Good cruise to relax by cruisetiludrop

We stayed in cabin 6338 which is a balcony room. Fairly standard balcony room with everything in good shape and good working order. We had a flat screen TV whereas we had heard other say they still had CRTs. We attribute this to the ship replacing defective CRT TVs with flat screens as time goes on. During retrofit next year they should all be changed to flat screens.

Loyal to Royal Part II by Jersey Travelers
Our balcony looked out the back of the ship. The space directly below our balcony was the kitchen crews break area. It seemed someone was always out there smoking, preventing us from leaving the balcony door open.  Read entire member review.

From what I'd heard on here, particularly early this year, I had some concerns about the state of the ship. For anyone worried (or complaining) about the state of repair of the ship, I can only say that's certainly not that we saw. The ship was gorgeous pretty much anywhere that counted. Yes, if you looked at the floor of a table in the windjammer, or along a hallway baseboard, you're going to see a paint chip, or fingerprints on a railing here and there. But seriously, relax. The public areas of the ship were, in my opinion, beautiful, well maintained and cleaner than most high-end hotels I've stayed at. As for the rooms, our 2 D3 cabins - 6546 and 6548 - were in amazing shape. Honestly, I really saw nothing. I had to look (hard) for issues inside and found only a bit of rust in the bathroom trim. Outside, yes the handrail needed varnish, and from the outside of the ship looking UP you could see rust UNDER the railings. But in our rooms anyway, no peeling paint, no furniture-so-soiled-I-had-to-put-a-towel-down, no broken drawers, no plumbing issues, no broken switches, no soiled rugs, nothing. Everything worked, everything was clean. The deck 6 balconies do have the solid wall at the bottom (rather than the glass of the upper decks), but that didn't phase me. From my point of view, as long as you can see the water from the chairs and the bed, which you could easily, I was happy. Our kid's balcony had a smoked glass divider on one side, but our cabin had solid walls floor to ceiling on each side which made it very private! ;) The room's location was also fantastic. We were somewhat forward, portside, right behind the elevators, but never heard a noise. The location was also very near the staircase, which put the promenade just a flight down and a few steps away - very convenient for getting coffee or heading to the pub to pick up a glass of wine before dinner. It was also close to the Maharajah lounge for shows and had great access to the elevators for everywhere else. For anything aft, we simply walked the promenade. Highly recommended location.  Read entire member review.

While the room showed some sign of age, it was a nice size and was well designed. There was plenty of storage space.

There were stains on the carpeting - not sure if was blood. The balcony had paint chips all over the deck. We took photos if RCCL would like to see the mess. Shampoo with conditioner makes hair greasy. Lots of scratches on furniture. Time to send ship to DRYDOCK.  Read entire member review.

I don't know how anyone could stay in anything less than a balcony. The rooms are small, but with the balcony they don't seem claustrophobic. It was quiet and my steward was lovely. I'd like a bigger shower, but hey it's a ship.

Balcony Cabin on the Explorer. Incredible experience, our own getaway on the water. Beware of people though who use their balcony as a smoking room. Our next door neighbor almost always came out and we had to go back in to keep from choking.
