Walk in spacious closet, shower/bath combo, nice size balcony with table, 2 chairs and a lounge chair. Very quiet room - no noise from neighbors or above. Could see all the ports from our balcony!  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was great with a walk in closet. Also had a bath tub that worked great for my little one. The room is about 50% larger than a regular cabin. Only thing we wish we could have opened the balcony up between our room and the room next to ours (which was occupied by a family member) like we did on Freedom of the Seas. We were told no and it's the Captain's decision so the rule varies by ship. Also bed is hard.  Read entire member review.

We had a junior suite, no. 1394. This is an aft cabin, so it has a slightly different configuration from standard junior suites, and it has a very large balcony. The room itself was very nice and spacious. Our suitcases went under the beds, which had been pushed together per our request. The bath, with its tub, was also very nice. The cabin has a walk in closet, but one difference between this and others we have had is that the closet is long and narrow, and while there is a clothes hanger running much of the length of the closet, towards the aft end the closet is narrower than the hangers. Nevertheless, with clothes for a 3+ week trip, we had plenty of storage space. The room has a stocked refrigerator, which we emptied and used for our wine, etc. There are few outlets, but with my Belkin cube tap and with a universal adapter for the European outlet, I had enough power outlets for a laptop, camera battery chargers, Kindle chargers, etc. Given the proliferation of devices which need charging, The Belkin cube tap (which includes a surge protector) is a necessity. The balcony is large and had two loungers, two chairs and a table. It has somewhat of an obstructed view because of the ship superstructure in the back. It is fully covered by the Windjammer. On the Navigator, the Windjammer is enclosed, so our dreams of dropping food from the Windjammer to waiting arms below were dashed. Because the balcony is enclosed, it had no wind whatsoever. On the other hand, if you want to sun yourself (not generally our thing), on an Eastbound TA the balcony is in the shade until late in the afternoon. We did not find the walk to and from the cabin difficult. We tend to walk everywhere and use the steps as much as possible. Our cabin steward was Reynaldo. The cabin was always clean and bed made promptly. We requested ice and we had a fresh ice bucket twice a day. The cabin comes with towels for two, but with trips to the gym and pools, we needed more, and after one request, the towel rack was always stuffed with towels. We had robes. Towel animals appeared from time to time.  Read entire member review.

Relaxing Cruise by jmss1950

We had a junior suite on deck 10 and it was very spacious with plenty of room to move around, a large walk in closet, and a wonderfully deep bath tub in the bathroom. Our steward was Raymond and he was extremely efficient and helpful. The only room complaint was how hard the bed was even with an extra egg crate added. The balcony was large enough for a table, two chairs, and a recliner. Great for sitting out reading and relaxing.

Avoid this Cruise by ssmhawaii
I am filing a grievence with RC on cabin 6394. It was sold as a Junior Suite and in reality was an obstructed ocean view. I complained on the first day and got nowhere, claiming I should have been warned it had a 30ft "maintaince deck " directly off the suite, which had workers 3-5 at a time varnishing other railing the removed, on ladders, etc. I have 30 photos if CC is interested in them.  Read entire member review.

Great Cruise! by newcruisergal
Great aft balcony, some do not like the obstruction on Deck 6 but we felt the location really gave it a quiet atmosphere and our view was not impacted at all.  Read entire member review.

Long walk from elevator, plenty of storage room, large balcony with two lounge chairs, table and chairs but missing the typical lovely view from back of ship due to extension. TV in desparate need of updating.  Read entire member review.

Junior suite looked exactly like all the pic online. The Aft balcony is enourmous and completly work the extra walk, which is not a big deal at all, and the "superstructure". If i were to do it again, i would have tried to get an aft JS on a higher deck (we were deck 7) to lessen the detraction of the superstructure.  Read entire member review.

Sailing into the unknown by Daniel Elphick
Nice big balcony with 2 loungers, 2 chairs and table. Large wardrobe to get rid of cases and hanging space. Superstructure at rear didn't spoil use of balcony or view and less breezy at back of ship.  Read entire member review.

7694 - Restricted view.

Rear facing Junior Suite overlooking the rear triangular shape of the boat. It wasn't a deck area so there were no people and no noise. Just beyond that you could see what I presumed was the staff area, because we could see signs saying smoking and non-smoking. Again no noise and we very rarely saw anyone there, (you could only see the tops of their heads anyway).
The view was obscured by the metal struts round the back of the boat, but it wasn't a problem unless you actually wanted to take scenic photos as you left port. They are not too wide and it wouldn't put us off booking again if this was the only cabin available (which it was on this occasion).
Personally I prefer to look down onto the water, however, for cruisers with small children worried about them dropping things overboard this could prove a blessing.
The cabin itself was clean and tidy and the bathroom was also fine. The throw for the bed had a big snag in it which I didn't think was acceptable (these are not part of fixtures and fittings, so should be replaced when worn - however, had I mentioned it I know they would have changed it), but the sheets were clean and fresh.
There was plenty of storage, since the junior suites have a walk in wardrobe with shelves inside, as well as the drawers in the dressing table.
The cabin steward was always helpful and very friendly, as were room service when we had to call them, and were happy to bring buckets of ice etc.
The ship is due a refit and I was slightly worried what the cabins would be like, but I was very pleased.
We were a family of 4 - 2 adults and two children of 7 & 11 Years. The children slept on the sofa bed and managed well. In some hotels they now struggle on some of the sofa beds, but this one seemed a good size and we had no squabbling.
Since the cabin was at the back of the boat there was a lot of walking involved, however the dining room and kids club were also at the back and easily accessible. The majority of the entertainment goes on forward or mid-ship.

Our Junior Suite was on deck 9, mid-ship. There was very little movement while at sea. The room was very quiet, above, next door and the hall. The cabin had a couch, chair, stool and the mirror, drawers and shelving along with a refrigerator. The balcony had two chairs, a table and a chair with a stool. The closet was large enough for two people and had shelving on one side. The bathroom had a tub with the shower over the tub and a plastic shower curtain, a single sink, toilet and shelving behind the side mirrors. Adequate for two people. Overall a very comfortable room for two people.  Read entire member review.

Huge closet! I was very surprised to be able to fit almost everything we had plus the luggage in the closet. Plus there was additional drawers around the vanity/desk area. Great balcony, 3 chairs and a lounge chair. The location of the room was quiet and provided great views!  Read entire member review.

Cabin : Our JS was rather roomy. Closet was large enough to walk in and turn around. Sitting area was nice. Balcony door was tight, no air leak, but did not lock. Plenty of space for belongings for three of us. Furniture was comfortable.  Read entire member review.

Junior Suite 9294 Big walk in closet, lots of additional storage, bath tub with shower head, electric tea kettle, small coffee pot - comes with caff or decaf coffee and sugar/sweetener packets that are refreshed daily. Small refrigerator stocked with many things for sale - water, soda. Bed was comfortable but pillows were not. Flat screen tv. Chair and ottoman nice and comfortable for reading or watching tv. Half partition curtain to separate bed from couch sitting room area. Balcony door and window let in a lot of lovely light. Lounger and 3 deck chairs and table on the balcony. A bit too crowded for us so we moved one deck chair inside which made outside area perfect. Quiet hallway and close enough to the stairs and elevators. Would stay here again.  Read entire member review.

9308 was an extra large Jr Suite just off the hump. We had marble looking sink, extra amenities and a great walk in closet. Great location and most the time on the side where the ship docked. The balcony had 2 chairs, table and chaise lounger.  Read entire member review.

Junior Suite #9324 on the Navigator of the Seas is a hump cabin (backside of hump) on deck 9. The cabin is roomy and comfortable. It has a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a tub. The balcony is good-sized, able to accomodate two chairs and a small table as well as a lounger chair with footrest. Location is very convenient, just steps from the elevators and stairs. Situated between decks with cabins, it is very quiet. Its central location also helps to minimize the effects of the ship's motion.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was very spacious, significantly larger than the Superior Ocean View Stateroom on our previous cruises. The décor was consistent with Adventure (and Serenade) comprised of pastel blues, greens and peach with oak wood tones. The bathroom was well appointed with a bathtub / shower. The tub was slightly smaller than a "standard" tub, but large enough to actually turnaround in and take a relaxing shower. Water pressure was good; however, hot water most mornings was an issue -- warm showers became the norm. (We typically showered between 7:00 and 8:00 each morning. A few mornings, we showered after 8:00, when hot water seemed to make it to the room.) The vanity was standard size, with ample storage on each side of the mirror and below the sink. Speaking of storage, this was the first cabin where we had more storage space than we knew what to do with. The cabin has a large walk-in closet with double poles for hanging clothes and ample hangers. The closet also had floor-to-ceiling shelves for storing clothes. Additional storage is available in the cabin around the desk area.  Read entire member review.

I was very happy with my cabin. It is a "hump" cabin that faces forward. It is a JS cabin with a walk-in closet. The cabin was very roomy. It has a tub/shower combination. Also, the mini refrigerator actually worked. It kept things cold. I wouldn't mind staying in this cabin again.  Read entire member review.

2nd time around by happily married
The suite was spacious and clean. The bathroom was always well cared for and supplied. What was disappointing were the pillows and bedspread. The pillows were very lumpy. We also found the mattress not as comfortable as other cruise lines. The balcony was spacious and very enjoyable except for smoke smell drifting over. Our location was very quiet.  Read entire member review.

We had a Junior Suite but was distressed on arrival to find hairs in bath. Then what appeared to be dirty bed linen in plastic bag jutting out from under the bed, apparently it was clean linen but it did not appear to have been ironed. Our bed linen was not crisp and ironed, the throw on the bed was full of creases.  Read entire member review.

The Junior Suite w/balcony on Navigator is very roomy and comfortable. Closet, cupboard and storage space was extremely adequate for a 5 night cruise. Balconies provided 3 chairs, one footrest and one small table. A very nice place to relax. Bathroom was roomy and included toiletries. Shower curtain kept getting sucked into the tub area where it would stick to wet skin! A very nice retreat from the crowds and chaos while at sea 2 days.  Read entire member review.

Had a cabin with a balcony which was pretty spacious with an adequate balcony which we did use several times to sit and read a book on. Found the corridors quiet of an evening, weren't disturbed by any noise whilst sleeping.

The towels in our room were supposed to be white, but had actually turned grey!  
The Bathroom smelled horrible. I had to buy a stick up air freshener in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><?xml:namespace prefix = u1 />France!
<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The balcony view was great, but the balcony itself was rusty in places.
 Cabin was ok.

There were three couples and we all stayed in Junior Suites on Deck 10. These suites are worth every dime. Plenty of closet room; deep soaking tub and shower, comfortably sized balconies and enough room to entertain 2-4 guests. We were only one floor down from the Windjammer Buffet and pool decks - eliminating an elevator wait. Our stateroom steward was excellent. A balcony makes all the difference in the world. There is nothing like having morning coffee with an unobstructed view the ocean; watching the ship arrive and depart from a port; or relaxing on a lounge chair under the stars -- on your own private balcony.  Read entire member review.
