Functional but dated. Decent lighting, enough storage space for two. Good A/C at night, not so good during the day. Flat Screen TV. Very hard bed and very cheap pillows. Shower stall doors. Read entire member review >>
Since the Enchantment is an older ship, the cabins were small. Ours was located starboard side forward. As an Ocean view room, the bed was placed under the window so there would be more floor space. The cabin was well maintained with no deficiencies. Bathroom with shower and shower curtain. No place to store luggage, and we only had carry ons, but we made due. Good storage space for clothing and lots of hangers. Only two US plugs so if you need to charge lots of stuff, bring a strip. Might be cruise line policy, but we needed to ask for additional soap and shampoo. Rooms located above ships thrusters so when they were in use room vibrated, otherwise very quiet. Short walk to elevators and near buffet and pool. Had to walk all the way aft for Main Dining. Limited balcony cabins, so if you want one book early. If you're not claustrophobic, I would book and inside room rather than an ocean view and use the savings on other stuff. Read entire member review >>
I always book an Ocean View cabin this one was on Deck 4, Cabin 4048. It is the smallest Ocean View I have ever stayed in. It was an adequate room but I couldn’t see how two people would fit and still be talking to each other at the end of the cruise. The bed was a queen, right under the window, so in order to look out the window you either kneeled or stood on the bed. There was a tiny end table about 16” wide on either side of the bed. There was about 16” of walking room to get to the head of the bed. A couch was against one wall and across was the desk with 3 drawers. There was no refrigerator in the room, it had been removed. The closet was two doors wide and had a safe in it. The bathroom was so tiny, part of me was in the shower and part of me was in the bathroom, I had wet floors all the time.
There has been much discussion about the mattresses and yes, the mattress was hard (I asked for a topper but was told Royal doesn’t do toppers any more, something about cleaning them) but I found it easy to sleep on, what I didn’t like was the 4 hard pillows, not one fluffy one in the bunch. A serious problem was the cabin was freezing. The room attendant tried to fix it but couldn’t, called maintenance and was told that was as warm as the thermostat would go. By Wednesday I had an ear ache, sore throat, runny nose and cough. Another serious problem was the window in the cabin is one that is lit up when we are sailing. There are lights all around the window and there was a curtain but it didn’t stop the light from coming in. I didn’t have to turn the room lights on because the window was so bright. I finally put towels all the way around the window and held them with duct tape (a woman’s best friend) to stop the light.
The t.v. showed the same programs for four days. I have just gotten off of a Princess and a NCL cruise that ran brand new movies, 1 or 2, every night in my cabin. I watched 12 movies that came out in 2016. Royal shows two movies on the outside screen, and it is the same movies every day, Deepwater Horizon and the BFG, over and over but not in the room. I saw the same episode of The Big Bang Theory 20 times. Seriously put a few new movies on the t.v., I like to fall asleep watching t.v. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was in good condition. Nice size window on deck three catching the beauty of the Ocean and other passing ships at night. The bathroom was remodeled and there were more sockets than most newer ships. The shower is smaller and have a shower curtain that is a little old and get the floor wet most of the times. Close to the elevators making it easily accessible. Read entire member review >>
Three women shared this cabin and there was plenty of storage for clothes, makeup and everything else. Our steward, Lindsey, kept us freshly supplied with towels and we all asked for robes to use which she happily provided. Read entire member review >>
Shower had no hot water first day. Shower did not drain. No tissues in the bathroom. Pillows were very flat. Drapes faded. Room attendant was fine but always had something just outside my door ( his cart, dirty dishes( not mine) ). Have to ask for ice. Read entire member review >>
Everything in the room was in working order, clean and sufficient for a four night voyage. Our cabin attendant seemed a little off but hey, we all have weeks like that! I will have to stress that Royal needs to upgrade the mattress and pillows in the staterooms fleet wide. I can find better in Holiday Inns! Read entire member review >>
Room was nice had enough room shower curtain was the biggest problem with the room it clung to you. Otherwise room had enough room and was comfortable. Did not spend much time in room. Read entire member review >>
We liked the location. The room has 2 port holes instead of a bigger windows. There is a funny ledge near the windows that would be the perfect place for a kiddo to hang out and read books or watch the waves.
Not many chanel on tv but otherwise good room . Read entire member review >>
Our room was on the second floor with an outside view. It was a good sized room but it could have had more drawer space but for four nights was all we needed. Our room was very clean and the staff very friendly. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was in an ideal location, immediately forward of the centrum. We occasionally heard music, etc. from the centrum but performances promptly stopped by 11 pm. There was a sewage smell in the bathroom which the stateroom attendant worked to alleviate somewhat. Read entire member review >>
The Large Oceanview Stateroom (G) was a joke. The pictures on the RCI site show the larger, rooms with a couch, not the one with the chair crammed in the already small room. As our embarkation was from a cold climate - there was a cold draft from the window above the head of the bed. There was no soap when we arrived in the room and the shampoo/conditioner combination dispenser was empty on the second day. Bring conditioner if your hair needs it. Otherwise you will be dealing with tangled and dry hair for seven days. Our room steward was nice and cleaned the room three times a day. Bring a corkscrew if you bring wine with a cork on board. They are few a far between - unless you want to pay a corkage fee. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was in a great location just down the hall from the dining room. Since we were under the casino, I was afraid we'd hear a lot of noise, but we didn't hear anything! There was plenty of storage and the bath was fine although the shower is a little tight. The bed was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4010 located forward (Deck 4)...rough ride on rocky seas, and a LOT of mechanical noise during docking processes. Ample closet space for two...would be tight squeeze for bigger group! Shower WAY small...could barely turn around, had to shave legs outside of stall. :-( Read entire member review >>
The cabin was our first Oceanview handicapped. Everything, minus one very minor detail, was great. he minor detail was the outside of the window needing cleaned. We had a great Cabin Steward. We look forward to seeing the updates after the re-vitalization. Read entire member review >>
4024 was exquisite, as you would expect on a cruise ship, it was small but highly functional. My wife and I could move around easily without bumping into each other, we could watch TV from the bed and the window was huge, you could see the ocean, dolphins and other ships from it. You could also take pictures from it. Its also central to most places and far from any noise, disturbance or activities. A walk down the hall, you are at the centrum and from there go everywhere, right above you is the theatre though with no noise. We'll use this room every time we cruise on this ship.

We were in oceanview cabin # 3132. It was in good shape and clean. The shower could use some help...it had a curtain and it was always sticking to us. Maybe during the refurb RCCL could consider curved doors like the other ships. Our window was washed on the outside on at least 2 occasions that we knew of. Nice.
Storage was ample. The T.V. is a little old and did not provide access to billing charges. Read entire member review >>
Closest had shelves from top to botton to one side...GREAT asset!!! Cabin 3578 is located midship, halfway between either forward/aft elevators. Hallway was generally quiet. Only problem we encountered were the number of wheelchairs/scooters allowed to park in the hallways. This is an accident waiting to happen! When the ship got bouncy at one point, I fell into one. Should not be allowed...put the wheelchair in the room. Read entire member review >>
We had a outside cabin. Great view of everything. Windows dirty on the outside, don't plan to take pictures thru windows. If you are a large person, the showers are very narrow. GREAT room steward ! Read entire member review >>
Very convenient location, close to elevators and stairs, and just down the hall from the centrum and MDR. High traffic area but didn't experience noise problems as a result. I would book this cabin again without hesitation if booking Class G. Read entire member review >>
We had an oceanview balcony on deck three (don't pick deck 2 if you really want a good oceanview since those windows are divided - the ones one deck three are larger and unobstructed). The only problem we had was the large suitcase was too 'tall' to fit under the bed. (The others we brought fit fine). On a longer cruise, we probaly would have asked if there was somewhere else where it could have been stored. THere are TONS of places for storage including several under the couch drawers which we discovered after we had unpacked! I like more closet shelving (there is one open shelf and one or two drawers below it rather than shelves the entire length of the closeet) but that is a person choice. Floor space in the closet is limited for sure storage so if you bring tons of shoes, this could be a bit of an issue. A hanging shoe storage unit could help this problem . We were slightly past midship yet we felt almost no motion in this room - even during a storm. We had NO problems with noise at all The queen bed was very comfortable (much more comfortable than the hotel bed we had slept in the night before!!) - and the sheets were soft and sparkling white as were the rest of the bed linens. Bathroom is typical cruise size - shower curtain instead of sliding door made shower seem bigger and more comfortable to get in and out of. Read entire member review >>
