Nice Family Trip by filamino

It was a quiet space. No reason to avoid this cabin unless you are prone to sea sickness or don't want to be close to the bridge view from the balcony. We thought it was cool. I don't think the balcony is any smaller than the rest - just the way the ship curves at the end makes it seem that way when you look at photos.

Standard balcony cabin. Not huge but big enough for 2 people. Balcony had 2 chairs and a table.

Arabian Adventure by Stevie Lawson
1526 - lovely and bright, with no overhang that the junior suites adjacent have. close to elevator but quiet with lobby area above between solarium and hair salon. handy for pool and spa and windjammer. very little movement felt at sea although my first choice is always a cabin toward the rear, I did like it and would choose again. bathroom still fresh looking. two chairs and small table on narrow balcony. good views on sailaway. flat screen tv. you travel backwards when lying on bed. bed next to window, small sofa and ample wardrobe space. would recommend.  Read entire member review.
7018 - awesome balcony - much larger than expected - deep and wide - room itself has little couch, nice double+ bed - slept like a baby. Great closet. kettle for tea, etc., hairdryer, toiletries (shampoo, soap), vanity area, table, chair, TV, drawers, 3 piece bath with good counter space and storage area. 7016 - same  Read entire member review.

I was a little bit concerned regarding the proximity of 7042 & 7044 to the forward stairs/elevators (noise). Turns out it was no problem at all. There are barrier doors, that were never closed, and I never heard any noise to speak of. If you like a little extra balcony space, these are great rooms! Deck 7 rooms adjacent to the forward stairs/elevator and moving forward have extra space on their balconies. I do wish they would have put a lounge chair out there!! I have seen a few reviews talking about noise coming from the Pacifica Theatre into these staterooms. I never heard it!

Balcony room view obstructed by unhappywithroyalcarib
Cabin 7170 balcony view blocked. Very noisy from club below all hours of day and night. Music and drumbeats reverberated throughout cabin.  Read entire member review.
Perfect weather! by rdub129

We stayed on the 7th deck balcony room and it was perfect. It had plenty of space for two people and the bed was very comfortable. What you pay for when you get a balcony is the view. We watched the sunrise and set most nights and the view was breathtaking. It was honestly so amazing. I can't complain one bit about my room location

A Dream Come True! by WriterRider
Great location near the stairs and elevators; very quiet; plenty of storage; wonderful views from balcony, including toward the bridge and the stern!  Read entire member review.

It was smaller than I expected and the only thing that made up for it was the large balcony. There was plenty of storage and I think even for two it would be fine. The tiny loveseat had seen better days and a replacement needs to take place. Aside from the space and location, it was not a bad cabin.

Loved having a balcony. I thought the room was spacious although we spent little time in it. We needed more outlets and our cabin steward brought an adaptor that held three more plugs.

The E2 Cabin was great no real issues with the size of cabin and balcony area but the ship overall is looking tired and shabby. This reflected on the cabins too. The cabins are definitely in need of updating/modernising in their entirety but were clean and tidy and the cabin stewards did a great job.  Read entire member review.
Quiet location , decent balcony , minimal movement of ship noticed. Quite a long walk to Centrum and elevators.  Read entire member review.

Although we were looking forward to our first-ever aft balcony, I would not do it again. We felt the motion more, and did not really get enough use out of the balcony as there was so much else to do. The corner aft was large and private, and the cabin itself was beautiful.

Cabin 8544 has a very tiny bathroom with curtain shower but a little bit of a bigger balcony but you cant see the back of the ship because of that. The cabin was ok, it was old but clean. I would not take it again since you cant see the entire ship from it and when you cruise a fjord you want to see all the way.  Read entire member review.

Room was fine, no complaints.

Our balcony cabin on deck 8 was good size and comfortable with plenty of closet and drawer space for unpacking.  Our only real problem in the non-smoking cabin was the gentleman next door who often smoked cigars on his balcony (first thing in the morning, on port sail aways, in the evening...); as non-smokers, it made our balcony unusable at times and made us keep the door shut when he was smoking.  Read entire member review.

I had a balcony cabin on deck 9 directly across from the elevator. Perfect location. It was large with plenty of storage. My stateroom attendant kept it spotlessly clean. There was plenty of balcony space but I didn't use it much due to the weather.

Cabin was larger than expected with masses of storage space. Balcony was adequate, with great views, but too small for dining. Close to lifts, just forward of mid-ship but nice and quiet.

Great balcony, cabin tiny bit small but plenty of storage and hanging space. Small Closet but sufficient.  Read entire member review.

Reasonable size, very clean, tight area for wardrobe space as you walk in if one person is in the bathroom and tries to come out while one person is at the wardrobes you have to try and squeeze by, not good but that is my only gripe.

Disappointing by mtsmith601
Cabin was fine except for furnishings and general condition being quite shabby. Was disappointed that adjoining balcony could not be opened as we were traveling with friends - if we had checked more when booking we would have been able to fix this. Unless you like hot afternoon sun in most ports, choose the other side of the ship.  Read entire member review.

Small stateroom that has seen better days. Closet and bathroom doors open into each other. Balcony shaded with 2 chairs and table suitable for dining. Bed was good for cruise ship.

Room adaquete. Bath very small. TV still old CRT's and not flat screens. Balconies need partitions moveable for couples traveling together.  Read entire member review.
First time with a balcony and loved, loved, loved it. However a smoker was next door which I could handle, but was out there CONSTANTLY smoking and hacking and coughing. They need to put these smokers in one area. Totally ruined my experience!!  Read entire member review.
Cabin was the E2 category and was the smallest I had every seen on a Royal Caribbean ship with the exception of the Majesty.  Read entire member review.
