Junior Suite (JS)

Cabin Rating
Junior Suite is perfectly comfortable, ample closet space (not quite enough hangers, but that can also come down to how much excess baggage you have). Bath is of course lovely twice a day, especially when someone else is cleaning it for you. TV is repetative but you wont be watching it much anyway apart from checking your on board account progress to the stratosphere. Mini bar contains juice but no alchohol, coming from Scotland I couldn't quite see the point in that? Beds, super comfortable and it was kind of the ship the rock me to sleep every night.  Read entire member review.
Lovely size, great balcony and very clean. Lots of storage space and good position on the ship as it was in the middle and less prone to movement in the choppy seas (although we did move about quite a bit)!  Read entire member review.
Excellent choice for more space. Walk in closet provides enough space for any amount of luggage and items. Bathroom is good sized. Cabin large enough to entertain friends. Balcony had two chairs, small table and two loungers, again large enough to entertain friends. Small amount of noise during the day from pool area above. We were able to have an afternoon nap without it being a problem. No noise at night from upper deck or hallway. Cabin in good shape, slight amount of normal wear and tear. Excellent position to access either end of the ship. Bring a power extension, either 220v or 110v, as power outlets are limited. Good value for money and we would select this room again with no hesitations.  Read entire member review.

This is a wonderful stateroom with and outstanding room stewart. This room offered ample space inside and out. With a spacious walk in closet there was has plenty of storaage space. The room location ondeck 10 is convient to the stairwell, elevators, Windjammer Cafe and pool decks. The room was quiet with no noises leaking in from decks above or below. I would highly recommend this stateroom or the ones immediately near it to anyone.

js 1366 deck 10 nice cabin, plenty of space,settee and lovely chair and foot stool, bit of noise from kids running in corridor but that on every deck lovely balcony with 2 chairs, small table and 2 loungers  Read entire member review.
The PERFECT cabin. It was spacious. The balcony was huge, larger than a standard JS. We could feel a little bit of a vibration while moving, but nothing to make us not want to stay in this cabin again. It was a long walk back to the cabin so if you have mobility issues, do not take an AFT cabin. But this cabin made me an Aft Lover :)  Read entire member review.
Great cabin, good views from balcony in both directions, spacious, good location  Read entire member review.
Great walk-in closet. Shower in bathroom a little weak due to the type of head fitted, but OK. Excellent position in relation to lifts.  Read entire member review.
Junior Suites are just about perfect for 2 on this ship and would even be suitable for a 2+2 family.  Read entire member review.
Cabin was fine, plenty of space for the two of us. The bed tended to slope on oneside and that is my only complaint  Read entire member review.
We had an AFT Jr. Suite, very large balcony with 2 chairs, 2 loungers and a small table. Dislikes were that you directly down on your neighors one deck below and a lot of steel infa-structure to look through.  Read entire member review.

We had an aft balcony which we love. Wonderful to lounge out there and just enjoy. As I said, our cabin attendant was also fantastic which of course helped out.

40th Birthday cruise by Steve Morgan
We were at the very back of the ship great balcony . Engine noise different every day very large bed very comfy ! There are steel barriers at the back of the ship but did not ruin the view from the balcony .  Read entire member review.
7714 - JS aft, centre, Freedom style vessels have large beams at aft enclosing the balcony areas. The view of the sea was fine but prefer ships where there is a direct drop into the sea with no obstruction. Large stateroom with walk in closet to right and bathroom to left. Bath with shower curtain but no shower cabinet. Bed to left, facing sideways, large sofa and chair with footstool. As per general cabin pictures on RCCL website. Large balcony with 2 chairs and 3 chairs with footstools and small table. Double sliding doors. Flat screen TV. Beware it is a long walk from the elevators and stairs to aft balcony cabins on this class of ship. Also beds are in dire need of updating and ours was reported to housekeeping for replacement, too late in my case as I departed ship with chronic back injury caused by this.  Read entire member review.
Junior Suite Number 9298, located deck 9, mid-ship. Spacious, with walk in cupboard suitable for getting dressed. Clean, spacious bathroom. Good balcony, with no overhang so good views. No noise from decks above or below, or cabins through the wall. Would recommend!  Read entire member review.
Family cruise by ledmom69
Our cabin was nicely situated. Close enough to stairs/elevators. Only 2 floors below the buffet restaurant. Had more than enough storage. The bedding was very comfortable. It would have been nice to have had a 2nd tv in the sitting area. Bathroom was large and efficient. Loved having a tub. Balcony was large enough for the 2 of us.  Read entire member review.

Very spacious, clean, great location. 9338 deck 9 mid ships.  Read entire member review.

We were in a junior suite 9348. It was a hump JS and we would opt for that area again. We have had JS class before and always enjoy it. For us it is worth the price jump for the extra space, closet, tub and extra balcony area. We truly enjoy our balcony privacy. As a note we have sailed on 8 other cruises and this was our first time to have a balcony that wasn't on the aft. We were afraid we would miss it, but have to say, we now prefer the side balcony. Much more air movement and with the hump, we also felt the view was just as good.

Cabin was outstanding and convenient to the aft elevators.
Very spacious and more storage than we could use and well kept by our attendant.
Definitely worth the extra $$.

One of the highlights of the cruise was the size of the Junior Suite.  Read entire member review.
Great bumped out balcony. two loungers and two chairs and small table.  Read entire member review.
Independence of the Sea Junior Suite 9568. It is a nice large room, but not a suite with separate seating area. Bathroom had a nice tub and granite sink. Walk in closet which had alot of room. This room was across from Service Doors but didn't hear anything. There was not alot of people walking through the halls which was good. Balcony was a nice size. One problem was that one day there was some sort of backup in the toilet and we had sewerage all over the bathroom.  Read entire member review.
Lots of closet space (walk in) and plenty of hangers. Good size balcony. Room was about the size of a small hotel room - bed, sofa, coffee table, chair, vanity.  Read entire member review.
As good as ever by nelly55
Great quiet location, huge walk in closet, great balcony.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 9626 ..Junior Suite - Port side. This cabin was Mid ship and very convenient for the lifts and stairs. Only 2 levels to go up to the Windjammer Cafe. It was my 1st experience in a Junior Suite and I loved it. The cabin was roomy and the plus for me was having a Walk In Wardrobe. There was also a bath/shower ..nice to have the choice. I really liked the size of the Balcony as it was big enough to accommodate a Sunbed + comfy lounger with leg rest also 2 chairs & a table. There was lots of storage space in the cabin and loads more in the Walk In wardrobe area. A nice thing to have was also the kettle & coffee maker. Cabin 9626 is close to the 'hump' so as far as looking at the views from the balcony - looking out to the RH Side there was a clear view & to the left obviously you couldn't see around the hump, this really wasn't a problem though! I will be opting for a Junior Suite again as I loved the space.  Read entire member review.
Wonderful cabin on the hump  Read entire member review.
Great Mid-Hump JS  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was a Junior Suite.
The cabin was spacious, and very well presented.
We were far enough away from the lifts, but opposite a service kitchen, which was not at all noisy.
The staff who worked there were very quiet, and often most of the work was done whilst we were out of our cabin during the day.
The services staff could be seen often cleaning the balconys following a tannoy message to ask us to keep the doors closed, and the window cleaners and ship painters were seen on a regular basis.
Our cabin was very comfortable, the bed huge and it had one of those memory matresses, which was just wonderful.
One fault I would say is that hoovering did not get done every day, and especially on the balcony , we would have to wait till turn down service in the evening to have the balcony cleaned and the ashtray emptied.
We would not get refills of shampoo, lotion, soap every day, and often a towel or too got missed, but these things did not deter, that the cabin was lovely.
Wardrobe space was a walk in room and plenty of space in there, plenty of drawer spaces throughout the cabin too.
One small fault is that the elctrical points were not enough. We took a 4┬áplug British extension lead with us, and I am so glad we did, as we only had 2 pin sockets which we used an adapter on.  Read entire member review.
Junior Suites have a larger balcony and sun loungers, obviously more spacious inside, walk in wardrobe, worth the extra money.  Read entire member review.
7414 Junior suite at back on ship deck seven. Had a nice big balcony, quieter at back of ship as not many people need to pass your door at night.  Read entire member review.

Junior suite was a great size, I would definitely do it again we could afford it
