Great cabin located close to the stairs and promenade deck.

We had a balcony stateroom. The room had enough space and enough storage space. Hair dryer is included. Save the room in your suitcase for other things. This room was close to the elevator. That area is always my choice. Easy to get in and out and around the ship. Surprisingly quiet. Upon closing the door we never had outside noise! The shower is a little small. Our cruise tip is; if you get tired of the small shower, go to the fitness area and use the showers there. The fitness area has a great whirlpool. My husband and I like it because it is in the middle and available to both men and women.

Great quiet and roomy cabin. Well laid out along with good location. Right in the middle between the forward and midship elevators.  Read entire member review.
The Navigator of the Seas is showing her age! Our cabin was missing the wood cap on the balcony railing. Carpet was worn and the TV's must have been the original ones installed when the ship was built 11 years ago. The bathroom walls had rust breaking through the paint. I wish that I could share some of my photos in this review.  Read entire member review.

Just like the picture, except no curtain between bed and sofa, and no sofa table (you can bring in the one from the balcony if you really need one).
There was a triangle of extra space (3' at widest) between the balcony curtain and the balcony, because the ship bowed out slightly. It was a great place to stow baggage if it didn't fit under the bed.
Very quiet. Very.
Around the corner from the elevator - so convenient!
Great location for main dining room, Windjammer and ice rink; just step off the elevator. The theater and the largest lounge were on the other end of the ship, though.
Lots of cubby holes to put your stuff, so, even though the cabin was small, we had enough storage.
Bring an extension cord / surge protector for chargers, laptops, etc.

#6322 has great location and slightly larger being on the hump. Bathroom is smaller than average. Shower is small. No ice in cabin. Plastic SOLO cups for glasses. Much like Motel 6.  Read entire member review.

Aft facing room with a larger balcony looking across a large empty deck to the wake of the ship. Room was clean and well-organized.

Mum and daughter bonding by victoria marton
more than adequate room space. shower a bit small for a larger than average sized person. closet space adequate .glass top coffee table intrusive had to keep moving it out of the way. our beds were split so very narrow walkway to balcony. balcony small but adequate for our safe good and cupboard above extremely useful. close to but not on top of lifts so never noticed any intrusive noises. mid way down ship so not bothered by excessive rocking. dont forget ship caters mostly to americans so plug points are US.  Read entire member review.
Not all it appears by Dr. Dillwyn Enoch
cabins quiet with adequate balcony. Room stewardess saw that bed was regularly changed and bathroom always clean and pristine. King size bed very comfortable and cabin reasonably spacious.  Read entire member review.

Good cruise and had fun by Jimmy Kentworth

Room is good size. There is plenty of storage. The room is mid ship aft easy to get to from the elevator and stairs. No complaints about the room or balcony.

7568 - mid ship port side - reasonably spacious with plenty of storage, usual small bathroom. Balcony door had very good seal, so no wind noise. Would select again.

Very nice stateroom with a balcony on the port side of the ship, located just slightly forward of midship. Quiet, with very minimal exterior noise. And very little motion from the waves outside.

Equidistant from fore and aft stairs, there is not a lot of traffic through the hallway. Balcony roomy enough for 2, enough room to sit and stretch out your legs. From the balcony, you could hear the activities at the pool, but with the door closed to the balcony, it was silent. We noticed an occasional banging sound at night. It was hard to tell whether this was from other people shutting their doors and it re-verbed down the whole hallway, or maybe the toilet vacuum or stabilizers? It wasn't so loud that it was very disturbing, but it was a mystery! Loads of closet and drawer space, though the drawers are small. Roomier bath with curved shower curtain bar. Lots of space for toiletries here too.  Read entire member review.
RCL never again by rosie56
We stayed in a balcony cabin on the seventh deck. The cabin was nice but there was a terrible smell all the time in the bathroom. Have been on several other cruise and have never had this. Handle to door to balcony was falling off and ac sometimes worked and sometimes not. Maintenance came up several times to fix it but continues to not work correctly. Plenty of room for our cloths and bed was comfortable. In center of ship so not to noisy.  Read entire member review.

This is designated as a handicapped accessible room. It is much larger but is the same price. The extra room is needed for wheelchair and scooter storage. Only 2 electric outlets but they provided a long extension cord for our CPAPs to plug-in at bedside. I brought a couple of multiple-outlet plugs with me and glad of it since at night we were charging two scooters, two phones, an iPad, and running two CPAPs all at the same time. bathroom was great--lots of grab bars, hand-held shower, seat in the shower, etc.

Not what she once was by PeridotQueen

Cabin was clean and inviting. Stateroom staff was efficient and helpful. Other than bathroom odors (sometimes severe) the cabin and balcony were great.

Plenty of storage space. Could use more hangers. Very quiet room & hallway. Great curved shower door. Sometimes the faucet water was too hot & wouldn't go switch to cold. Bad for brushing teeth! Nice balcony view!  Read entire member review.
We had cabimng 8608-very convenient; it was on the same elevator line as the dining rooms, the Windjammer cafe, and the casino.  Read entire member review.

Good room layout. Plenty of space for two. Nice shower.

Large cabin, was fine. My wife uses a C pac machine, and we had to get an extension cord to make it work. No plug anywhere near the bed. Cabin designers need to look at stuff like this.

First Time Cruisers by SomerStone

The room was PERFECT. Whoever said don't spend the money on a balcony is an idiot. We spent a LOT of time relaxing and reading on the balcony, enjoying the views at sea and at port. It comes with two chairs and a table. I can't imagine having a room without one. There was plenty of space to unpack and put suitcases under the bed. Bathroom is plenty big enough, with great water pressure and hot water. However, the bed was EXTREMELY uncomfortable for this pregnant lady (very hard mattress), but our steward put some soft foam mattress pads on and all was well (ask for this right away - like call housekeeping as soon as you get in your room because they do run out of these things). We brought our own pillows, so that wasn't a problem. One negative - the TV situation. Yes, we are TV addicts, so this was kinda a big deal. It's a great flat screen, but there are hardly any channels! There are 40 channels (ok, that's good) - BUT, about half are devoted to the ship and shopping (think QVC type channels solely for shops on the ship). Ten are devoted to Spanish and kids channels. So then you're left with about 2 news and 2 ESPN channels (we lived on those), and TBS. There was a Food network channel, but they looped the same episode over and over and over again. Sooooo.....bring lots of reading material or download movies to your tablet or phone before you leave. Speaking of that, know that they charge an outrageous price for WIFI (like $300 for the week). We ended up not getting it, thank goodness, because we heard it was spotty and you can't even stream Netflix, etc., much less download an email in less than 30 minutes. At that price, you should be getting the fastest WIFI around.

Couple of random review tips that I read that worked great for us: Bring magnets for your itineraries (walls are metal), so they don't take up valuable space in your cabin. Bring an EXTRA long extension cord for your phone chargers, etc. There's only ONE plug in the whole cable, including the bathroom, and it's kinda far from the bed. Bring a small, soft throw blanket for sitting out on the balcony. Pack plenty of $1 bills for the random tips you give out each day (room service, etc.) - our steward got a couple bucks each time he brought ice, etc. We brought about $200 in one dollar bills and spent about $150 (and we're big tippers). Tip your steward an awesome amount the first time you see him, and he'll do just about anything for you the whole rest of the trip. It shouldn't work this way, but it does make a huge difference in service. Don't bring a travel water container (you get those for free when you get the beverage package). For the guys, pack a couple pairs of pants because they are very strict with the no shorts dress code at dinner - why RCI does this to people is beyond me. Formal nights are a big deal too, but we always ate at a specialty restaurant, or Johnny Rockets on those nights to avoid the silliness. Don't bring beach towels for excursions, you can get some from RCI when you leave the ship. Ladies, go to one of the shops on the first day and get one of those cute necklaces for your SeaPass card. They're only $12 and you'll be thanking me later.

Cabin 9390 on NOS has a horrible aft balcony. It is less than half the size of the one for 9392 and you barely have any room for one person to walk with the 2 chaise lounges, chair and table. No more than 2 even has room to stand out on it. Avoid this cabin if you want a nice balcony!!! 9690 did not seem to be a mirror image as the balcony from a distance appeared larger. Other than that the room is fine, aft was very quiet. I would not hesitate to book the other rooms at aft on that floor.  Read entire member review.
The cabin was o.k. There was a leaking at the back of the toilet for two days. The soap was only replaced once. There was only a small bar of soap and not the shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and body lotion found on Princess for the same price of this cruise.  Read entire member review.

Large state room with plenty of space for my daughter's wheelchair and medical equipment. The roll-in shower with seat was very nice and made bathing easy for her after a long day.

This Cabin seemed to be a little smaller than usual, but also seemed to be newer as the Mariner of the Seas, the Navigator's sister ship, did not have cabins on the 12th deck. I think the staterooms on this deck were added which took away from the outside running track.

The hump cabin was nice. There was plenty of room and we stored our luggage under the bed. We spent a good amount of time on the balcony. We had breakfast on the balcony several times. This is a very nice treat.

Nav of the Seas by jacs2003
Loved the balcony and the bathroom!  Read entire member review.

The cabin was roomy and comfortable, starboard side, amidships. Our room attendant was friendly and efficient, but not very visible. On previous cruises we have had a chance to get to know the attendants, not this time. The floor on out balcony was cracked and heaving where the room dividers attached. Probably not a safety issue, but certainly an aesthetic problem.
