Sufficient closet, balcony facing the back of the boat, no disturbances from the Windjammer cafe over our head, very quiet location, but far away from the elevators.  Read entire member review.

8598
We were in cabin 8598 in the center of the Brilliance. It is not a very large balcony cabin but very comfortable and close to the elevators. It is a quiet cabin. Once we had everything put in it's place the cabin worked quite well. Bathroom was adequate - no problems. We prefer being center ship near the elevators. Makes life easy to be able to return quickly to the cabin for forgotten things or to store purchases you don't want to carry around. Balcony comfortable, on the hump, and bed very comfortable.  Read entire member review.

A Gift from RCCL by cruiseblues2013
The ship was headed for dry dock for updating, considering this, we felt besides needing a new flatscreen, and a new mattress it was still adequate and we had great sleep. The room had a great location, quiet easy access, and loved being towards the back. It did have a door for access to the room next door, but was not even noticable. We looked down on a area a couple floors down but did not any block the view at all, just could not see the sea line, but not a big deal, view was great. We would not mind having this same balcony room again.  Read entire member review.

The cabin 8642 was just fine. The balcony has a large roof structure under it that prevents a direct line of site to the water. Everything was fine other than that.  Read entire member review.
9234

We were very surprised at the large size of our superior oceanview balcony (category D2) Cabin #9234 stateroom and with how well it was furnished and laid out. It looks just like the pictures on line. We feared that was a "brochure shot" and it would look much smaller when we saw it in person but, if anything, it was bigger than we expected. The room can be divided by a curtain if you wish-- with a sofa and coffee table in front and the bed in the back near the balcony. Or just leave it open to enjoy the full space. There is plenty of storage for clothes in full length closets with his and her poles, lots of drawers, corner cabinets, a hutch-like cabinet, and under the bed. We could have brought 2 or 3 times as much and had room for everything. There's an in room safe and mini-bar and individually controlled heat and A/C. The bathroom is typical -- small but well laid out. The shower is small but adequate unless you are a very large person. The hot water was always hot and there was plenty of water pressure and that was a wonderful surprise as well. Toilets flush strongly and completely -- much better than other marine heads we've seen. The stateroom attendant kept it sparkling clean with fresh towels twice daily, turn down service each night, ice upon request -- a complete disinfectant wipedown every day. We ended up spending much more time in our cabin than we thought we would because it was so nice and for that reason we're really glad we got a balcony room. Stateroom 9234 is aft on the port side -- about 2/3 of the way to the stern of the boat from the "Centrum" multi-level atrium which is the center of activity. We felt essentially no rocking/rolling at any time on the cruise even in 4 foot seas and were surprised at how stable it was. My wife gets sea sick fairly easily and was fine the whole trip. We had a balcony stateroom which I highly recommend to get fresh air, capture the views, watch the ship dock, etc. On one occasion the air conditioning seemed a little underpowered (just for a couple hours) and we were able to cool the room down quickly by opening the door. I recommend being at least 6 or more cabins away from the main atrium, whether foreward or aft, because the closer ones can stay pretty noisy with all the music and entertainment in the atrium until midnight each night. Way aft, we noticed a little engine vibration but where we were there was none. It was perfectly quiet and we would absolutely choose this location again. The folks in the foreward cabins said there was a little bit of odor toward the end of the cruise but there was none at all where we were. Also, staying aft puts you in the same area of the ship as the main dining room and the Windjammer buffet dining room -- so getting to food is easy by stairs if the elevators are slow or full (as frequently is the case). It's also an easy walk up stairs to the pool deck, gym deck, disco, etc. And if you have to go farther away (Guest services and Excursions, for example, are on deck 4), you're going down the stairs instead of up -- so you are not as likely to need elevators then either. The theater, shops, photography studio, cinema, and pool areas are forward -- so you do have a bit of a walk to them, but you use the restaurants more than once every day and each of those venues only occasionally. Be careful of review sites that describe bigger balconies for some of the staterooms and suggest that because it's bigger, its better. If the

Cabin was a good size with plenty of storage. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom had a sewage smell as did some of the hallways on the ship. The shower curtain did not do a great job of keeping water from getting all over the bathroom floor.

Cabin 9654 on the Brilliance of the Seas is a D2 Superior balcony, starboard aft. The balcony is oversized as it is the last one before the aft cabins. There is an obstruction to the left caused by the window washing ladder, but it did not bother us in the least and did not block the view. We loved having all that extra balcony space. The cabin interior is like the other balcony cabins. Bed was comfortable and the bed linens were crisp and lovely. The closet had enough hangers and space.  Read entire member review.

Balcony Stateroom 9600. Great overall room and balcony view. Quiet hallway. Docked on that side of ship most time, so saw the port from my balcony. Air-conditioning could not be turned off and the fan blew on the bed constantly. Needed an introduction to the amenities for TV, frig and bathroom. Bed was a little lumpy and the comforter was very heavy. No digital clock, but a wake-up call available. Sofa was threadbare. Lots of mirrors, drawers and closet space.

Wonderful Cruise! by to_the_c
Our D2 cabin was more roomy than other cruise ships we've been on...except for Disney which was probably equal. Loved all the hidden nooks and crannies where we could tuck away our belongings. Very quiet and private on our 9th floor. Balcony was perfect for us.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 9254 on the "Brilliance of the Seas" has a balcony with severly retricted sea view, avoid it at all costs!!  Read entire member review.
