I love the location of this cabin because it's so close to the pool area & buffet with no elevator needed, and the elevators are just steps away for the times when you need to go to the lobby or deck 5. Balcony is nice to have. No public rooms above or below, so nice and quiet. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 6363, a balcony room. The layout is what you would expect, king bed, couch, desk, bathroom, balcony with two chairs and small table. For me the cabin isn't extremely important. I am only there to sleep and get ready so I am not picky. The one note I will make is about noise. deck 6 is right about the promenade deck, so if you prefer quiet go for deck 7. Deck 8 you have noise from Lido above. We were right above the casino so there was a singer every night below us. Didn't bother us but some may not be able to sleep. It is loud enough that we could sing along. Read entire member review >>
We upgraded to this cabin from a Verandah deck (Deck 8) cabin (which we had the year before). The upgrade to Spa Deck was not worth it. Definitely enjoy a balcony cabin from Deck 8 or 9, for the privacy alone. This floor in general was very quiet, but the front of the boat, high floor was not as enjoyable as the lower floor/midship location we have had the 2 previous years. Read entire member review >>
Quiet hallway, easy access to Lido deck, difficult to get to Main Dining Rooms. Bed by the balcony made the room feel more open. Extension cord (not just power strip) needed to reach bedside for CPAP machines. Plenty of closet space, not so many drawers for folded items. Read entire member review >>
Nice room with lots of storage.. at least for the two of us.
Easy access to the lido deck without using the inside stairs and/or elevators.
The balcony has a partial overhang that allows water being used to clean the decks above to filter down onto the balcony. In addition, sea spray can be felt when the ship is moving. This parial covering could definetly be a problem when it rains, limiting its use.
Due to its location, music from the entertainment areas could be heard clearly when on the balcony 24/7. In our opinion, this takes away from the pleasure of sitting on the balcony and enjoying the ocean noises late at night.
It was very, very windy on the balcony when the ship was moving. Since this was our first balcony room, we're not sure it was any worse than elsewhere on the ship.
Overall, this balcony room was a great bargain for us (upgraded due to ship changes made in dry dock) and we definitly enjoyed our stay in this room.
In the future, we'll probably book a balcony room on a lower deck. Read entire member review >>
