Not exactly spacious but clean and well kept. Difficult to shower without repeatedly banging elbows on walls of shower cubicle. Good balcony offering unobstructed views. Soundproofing between cabins could have been better especially through the 'closed off connecting door'. Room service excellent.  Read entire member review.

Starboard side balcony cabin - just about big enough with seating area, large wardrobe space and good size bathroom with shower, the balcony was only just large enough for two chairs and a stool which you are expected to use as a table. Room service is offered but there is nowhere for you to eat a meal unless you use the coffee table.  Read entire member review.

The room was lovely it had everything you could want on a holiday a small seating area inside and a lovely balcony. We were opposite the lifts but we never heard anything, we had children in the next cabin and never knew this until we were in Gran Canaria and they were on the balcony so the rooms are well insulated.  Read entire member review.

Our Review by Broomboy1948
Cabin has enough space for 2. Bed was wonderful, pillows were perhaps not up to scratch-some passengers carried their own, so perhaps experience tells.The bathroom was compact but adequate.The balcony had the usual furniture and no restriction to views.Close to forward lifts and stairs with no intrusion of noise from corridor traffic.  Read entire member review.

Connecting cabins, 7304 and 7306. Great location. Very quiet. Balcony divider opens. 7304 had a pullman, 7306 did not. Very comfortable with 2 adults and 3 kids (12, 15, & 17). Lots of storage space. Would definitely book thes rooms again.  Read entire member review.

Independence of the sea room 7312. Nice room. Decent closet space. Great balcony. Quiet location. Bathroom shower like a standup tube. Very small. There are no electrical plugs except by the TV, so forget any device by the bed unless you have an extension to run across the room. Comfortable bed. Temp control works ok. Had to ask for ice, shampoo. Hair dryer in a draw by TV. Cannot be moved. Bathroom has a special plug for an electric shaver in the ceiling. That's it. Toilet is small. No irons.  Read entire member review.

I felt our cabin was a bit small for 4 people. The bed was a very big bed and there was not much room when the settee was folded out. There was plenty of storage space and the room was maintained very well by our room attendent. The balcony was great although there were only 2 chairs for a cabin for 4 people.  Read entire member review.

Awesome by 2nd time cruisers
ROOMS: they do what they say on the packet so to speak, call me spoilt, but we always have a outside stateroom as it has a balcony due to my other half liking to sit out and read. He's also an early riser so he tends to sit on the balcony and watch the ship dock as the various places. The bathroom was big enough, the wardrobe was also big enough if fitted all mine ooops all our clothes in, plenty of draws, bed big enough an curtains kept the light out so one could get some sleep. Door opened wide enough to get my wheelchair in once it was folded up.  Read entire member review.

Just off the stairway next to the Library. No noise. Balcony slightly angled which prevents view of the front of the ship.  Read entire member review.

First time we had balcony cabins after nine other cruises, (four cabins for the eleven of us). We would not do without again. Bathroom was better than expected, pull down bunk was OK for kids, not for an adult in the three adult cabin, steward gave us a roll away bed after the first night! Much appreciated. Cabin location amidships was fine. Was easy to get to dinning rooms or entertainment venues.  Read entire member review.

Great balcony - cabin would be a bit cramped for 3 people on a longer cruise but was satisfactory for a mini cruise.  Read entire member review.

Frank and honest by mika6617
Our Balcony stateroom was fine, it had enough room for our period of stay and was kept tidy enough, although you will find better kept staterooms.  Read entire member review.

Loved having the divider between our balcony and our son's balcony open so we had one big balcony that the whole family could enjoy... spent many evening on it.  Read entire member review.

Great location although the bed coming out the celing would not be suitable for a child much older. Our 11 year old clattered against the rails.  Read entire member review.

Our Cabin was a Deluxe Balcony Stateroom number 8574. The cabin was excellent, larger than expected, with a comfortable Queen Size double bed, TV, Kettle with tea bags (Coffee has to be got from room service, but its free, Fridge/mini bar. Shower and toilet were a good size as was the balcony. The Cabin was quiet clean and in good condition and if you get Grace Santos as your cabin attendent you are sure to be well looked after.  Read entire member review.

great cabin,lots of storage.
shower had doors not curtain.
rooms was connected so we was allowed to open balcony divider.
If you get a connecting cabin please remember the walls are very thin and you can hear next rooom very clearly and the tv.
Coffee table and chair just got in the way really.
Not far to lifts.
Loved this cabin,will book again.

Great view, nice and quiet too.  Read entire member review.
9406
Cabin 9406 is smaller (shorter) than other deluxe balcony staterooms. It has a loveseat, not a couch. It's position at the very back of the ship is nice and quiet, however, the steel girders curving around the stern block the view of the ocean somewhat. It is a quite location but it is almost 3 football fields away from the gym / bow of the ship. Internet reception inside the room is fine, but there is no Internet reception on the balcony. Balcony is larger than most with two chaise lounges, plus two chairs plus a table.  Read entire member review.

Royal Chavibbean by looper35uk
Cabin 9588. Very centre of the ship, long walks to the lifts (foward and aft). Decor of cabin very poor, looks like something from the 70's.  Read entire member review.
None

Adequate as long as you can get your cases under the bed. Wardrobe door opening arrangement is very awkward and could easily be improved, Starting to look a bit worn but nothing big enough to be an issue.

Aft balcony was great, however because of the metal across the back, it was not as nice as aft cabins on other cruise lines.  Read entire member review.

Apalling by arnhem12
Nasty carpet. The sort of hairdryer I'd expect in a Backpackers hostel, no toiletries, no robe, no slippers. The in room tea/coffee facilities were also worthy of a Travelodge, rather than a 'Deluxe' room. We were kindly left a note halfway through the holiday because we could smell that they were obviously having issues with the drainage. It asked us not to use too much toilet paper. How much is too much?:- after all there were no bidets. The Shower was broken - water helpfully coming out of both ends.  Read entire member review.

We were in cabin 8594 port side cabin was large, spacious and very clean top class  Read entire member review.

The room appeared clean and the service from the hard working steward was good. Our balcony was on the 8th deck with a nice view, but the plastic strap chairs were very uncomfortable. Smoking from other balconies will drift into your space.  Read entire member review.
