M257 category 6A....aft...about 3rd from the very back. Convenient to Tiffany buffet area. Nice window. Expected a couch but there wasn't one. No big deal. Had some problems with too much hot water but were able to figure it out eventually. Not sure if we were competing with our neighbors for the cold water or not. 3 decent sized closets, nice safe accessed by swiping credit card. 4 drawers.  Read entire member review.
Of the four nights, I only had towel animals the last two nights! Simple thing, yes, but I was looking forward to those! Our room was always tidy though so on that I couldn't complain at all. Overall, it was very satisfactory.  Read entire member review.

Uncomfortable bunk mattress. Tiny pillows and poor tv quality. Not too noisy and good cabin service. Like the bathroom size better than Serenade of Seas. Good closet area and laundry was handy.

This cabin was roomy for two people. Our steward was excellent and we returned several times per day to a clean cabin. The decor is somewhat outdated but the shower had plenty of hot water, shower gel, and shampoo. We brought a power strip as there is only one outlet in the cabin. The tv is old but the picture was fine. It had the three major networks and a couple of old movie channels. The AC worked fine in our cabin. We both like it really cool and we were comfortable at night.

This cabin is on a lower deck and in the forward section of the ship. We do not get seasick so it wasn't a problem for us but on the rough sea day we could really feel the movement and saw the waves against the window. This cabin was pretty quiet. Only one occasion did we hear people above us. It was very convenient on port days as the gangway was only one deck below.

CABINS R100, R88, R76 We reserved three cabins with large windows - one for my parents, one for my brother and one for my husband and me. The cabins were on Riviera deck, with a few cabins in between us so we weren't on top of one another constantly. The cabins were a decent size and as long as we stayed out of them, they were cleaned in the morning and at night. Closet space was very good, bathroom size was satisfactory and everything was pretty clean. The in-cabin TVs were huge and old but got a good selection of channels. Like I noted before, I am a bit spoiled after we cruised Holland America, but I do have to note that the toiletries provided were sort of skimpy ... no moisturizer, no conditioner, etc. Next time I will remember to pack my own. For the price of $230 per person, the cabins met all our expectations.  Read entire member review.
Perfect! It was plenty big, had a king size bed, little counter/desk thing by the bed to place stuff on, for the ladies, do their hair and make up. You could have all your lights on- or there was a light over each bed area, or there was a "ship light" it was like a light in a corner that illuminated this plastic ship scene. Window was huge. Bathroom was just fine! Our room was always clean- it was fantastic!!  Read entire member review.
First was Calica, a commercial port a few miles south of Playa del Carmen. There is nothing at the port except a few vendors with the usual trinkets for sale. In the afternoon, there was a Mayan dance group that was entertaining and pictureque. We chose to take the ship's excursion to Tulum. I highly recommend this tour if you have any interest in Mayan history and seeing well preserved ruins on a beautiful Caribbean location. My wife, who is not a history buff, thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Mayan culture. Our tour guide,Cesar, spoke Spanish, English, and Mayan. The Mayan language sounds nothing like Spanish, and has more roots in Asian languages; as do the physical traits of the Mayans. If you take a video camera, there is a nominal charge of $4.00. It is well worth the fee to take videos. To really get a feel of the size and beauty of the site, a video is the best method of recording the magnitude of the ruins and the beautiful views of the sea. The tour lasts about four and a half hours. At the end of the site visit, Cesar met us at the bus with a cold, wet facecloth, a bag of chips and a bottle of water. A DosEquis could be purchased for a few dollars from the bus driver or you could buy five for ten dollars at one of the restaurants at the site.  Read entire member review.
Our room on the Riviera Deck was just as we expected. Quiet, no problems with temperature or noise. We were almost all the way aft on the port side.  Read entire member review.
Awesome Vacation by wiifamily
Great cabin. Worked great for 5 of us. Lots of closet space. Good view out of our window. Close to elevator, but was very quiet. Bedding was comfortable.  Read entire member review.
Good Time on Elation by PaulaTimothyCollazo
Great location but we prefer the back of the ship. Upper deck has no clubs or bars above it so it is very quiet.  Read entire member review.
