Our balcony cabin had cabinets that would not close and a television with only a few stations (no movie station) that only came in at times. The shower only had a curtain and when taking a shower the entire floor of the bathroom would be flooded. Our cabin steward only made one towel animal and that was the 2nd to the last day on the ship and reused the same one the next night just moving it from the table to the bed.

Best cabin stateroom I have had and I have been on the adventure of the Seas with a balcony. Plenty of storage space. A safe. A mini fridge that I believe was set up for a mini bar but they left it empty. It never really kept anything cool that I put in it. The balcony had a couple of rust stains but the salt water really beat the ships up. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a sliding door to access the balcony. The room was exceptionally clean and kept exceptionally clean by the room steward. I simply love this room. A huge 3 person couch that was comfortable and I believe it let out to be a bed Read entire member review >>
Noisy at night from above. Not for a light sleeper. Bathroom is a little banged up. Shower door, not curtain. Hard mattress. Plenty of storage space and very clean. Nice size balcony for the space. Cabin attendant did a great job of keeping everything immaculate. Read entire member review >>
Leak was patched, then came back, eventually forcing us out of the cabin. The new one - 7648 - didn't seem to cool well on the last night of the cruise. They were working on the original cabin when we left (could have been a bad shower pan or something else - but they were having to tear up the floor - hopefully you future guests will not have to deal with that issue.

We were in room 7558. Nice balcony room with a lot of useful storage. I'm surprised by how well the room storage was planned out. This is an older ship and the showers still have curtains instead of the sliding door. Didn't bother me. The hand-held shower worked well. Water pressure was fine. I like a firm bed so the bed was great for me. The balcony was small but had two chairs and a table and was fine for us. Read entire member review >>
Balcony view was very nice. Had nice updated TV in the room. Room contains a pullout couch. I only wish the room was a little bit more modern and trendy but I didn't expect much being an older ship. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very spacious with more storage than I have seen in many hotel rooms! It was kept very neat and clean. The only criticism is the size of the shower which is probably small on most cruise ships. The bathroom itself was actually fairly roomy with lots of room for storage of personal items which I loved! The bed was a little hard for me, but itwas ok and I slept well every night! The people who serviced the cabin were all extremely friendly and helpful every time we saw them in the hallway.

I was suprised to see how small the stateroom was, but it makes since once you think about it. I was just suprised since it was my first cruise. Other than that the stateroom was actually pretty big for a cruise ship. However, there is only enough room for 3 people, unless you are traveling with 2 small kids. Read entire member review >>
We booked a forward balcony and had done previously too. The room by old RCCL standards are good sized, balcony is decent sized for an older ship as well. Bathrooms are efficiently organized. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is in the "new section," which means you get shower doors instead of curtains and a few other upgrades. I thought the room was a good size (compared to other cruises I've been on). The balcony was small, but usable. Our room attendant was absolutely fantastic. (The best I've ever had.) He was one of the best parts of the cruise. I was disappointed in the beds, but only because the other two cruises I've been on had such comfortable beds, I thought that maybe all cruise lines had this. I was able to sleep just fine, but it would have been better had the beds been more comfortable. I liked the location of the room and would not hesitate to pick that same room. The only potential problem is that you definitely could hear the music from the Centrum until about 11 p.m. each evening. The music was decent though, so it didn't bother me all that much. But, if you're a light sleeper, you might want to try to get on the 8th floor. Read entire member review >>
Rooms bathroom smelled horrible the entire cruise (plumbing problems???). The bed is harder than a brick! And the bed is very low to the floor which bothered us. There was a sofa bed we considered sleeping on instead but it was just as bad. The balcony is extremely rusty and nasty, offered no privacy from the cabins to the left and the right as there is not a wall separating the two entirely from one another. Thin walls. If your neighbor is on their balcony get ready to hear their entire conversation. This room was horrible. I couldn't recommend it. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was the classic with balcony Royal, the only thing I would change is the curtains to shower because they are much more uncomfortable the rigid door of the other classes of ships Read entire member review >>
Surprisingly large amount of storage space. Plenty of room for 2. We enjoyed the balcony. Didn't feel the room was all that clean upon arrival - we dusted/Clorox cleaned up most surfaces. Read entire member review >>
We had stayed in the Royal Suite on Indy the month before and now had a regular balcony room. Quite a transition. We had not had a regular balcony room for ten years. But you know, it was just fine for a three night trip for my son and I. The room was showing signs of wear, such as some rust at the bottom of the bathroom door frame and the brass border on the desk mirror was quite tarnished. They kept it as clean as possible and it had a nice little balcony. All in all not bad and it was paid for by others which made it much nicer. Next trip is the owners suite on Indy.

Large room, Lots of storage both in the closet, in the desk and even in the bathroom. The bathroom was also larger than many other ships we have been on. Room was in very good shape. We were 9 doors down from the elevators and it was very quiet. Read entire member review >>
The panoramic oceanview stateroom is very nice. Plenty of room. We were right near the Atrium, so you will be able to hear the music (it did not bother us, but may if you are a light sleeper). Read entire member review >>
Very nice stateroom! The balcony rooms are awesome, we will never stray to anything less. The room itself was clean, ok with space (though we did kind of have to awkwardly walk over the corner of the bed to get to the balcony), the beds very comfortable. We had three people in our room so my brother slept on the couch which converted to a bed (our housekeeper fixed it up nicely every night at like 5ish). We did have one issue of the toilet not flushing for a couple minutes but the problem fixed itself. No sewage smell like some cruisers complain about, although as you walked down near deck 3, you could smell a small waft every now and then. This room is near the aft, so it's a pretty far walk down the hallway but your nights are quiet because of this! :) Except for this weird bumpy sensation on the first night that i think was from the engine, we slept like babies. The bathroom is small but from reading previous reviews, I was warned and ready. The shower is also very small so be prepared to dance with the shower curtain, lol. It actually didn't end up being too bad, though. My brother is over 6 feet tall and he said it was manageable. Over all, if you don't mind the long walk down the hall and appreciate quiet nights, this room may be for you. :) Read entire member review >>
Small for three people, the bathroom left a lot of be desired, and the shower curtain did not take much to jump off its tracks, allowing the water from the shower head to hit it, flooding the entire bathroom floor. Luckily there was a drain in the bathroom outside of the shower, so that was not that much of a problem. The room itself seemed to be okay, but there were obvious signs of the room's age. The balcony door handle was shaky and the plastic covering was broken. The adjoining balcony door, which was closed for the duration of the cruise, rattled like mad, making relaxing on the balcony or having the door open during the night nearly impossible. The stateroom has a couch that can turn into a bed, which does not pull out, but the padding simply comes off to reveal a mattress. The main bed was uncomfortable, as it held large indents in them, forcing you to sleep a specific way. The television was new and modern, and there was little else negative about the cabin.

Ocean view Balcony. Like all others on royal. We love the balconies. Located at main atrium on Deck 7. Down one deck to coffee shop, shopping, and freestyle machine. Down 2 decks to Casino and Deck 5 amenities. 2 decks up for windjammer and pool. Used Elevator maybe once the whole cruise. No hallway/stairwell noise. Read entire member review >>
Room was larger than rooms we have had before on Royal Caribbean. It was clean and we had avery nice cabin steward. He's the only one we left an extra tip for. By the way, we booked one week before the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very clean. The bathroom appeared to be new, the tile floor was immaculate, although the room was small, it was very well designed.The door handle out to the balcony was loose, but functional. There were 2 chairs and a small table on the balcony that we used several times. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was quiet, but not the perfect. We did not like the shower curtain. It seemed to attack you turn on the water. I did not like the furniture layout. if the bed was closer to the balcony, like our last cabin on Independence of the Seas, we could have avoided running our shin into the bed frame. Cabin temperature was fine and the view was great. Cabin attendant was friendly and efficient. Read entire member review >>
Ample room, generous closet spaces and cupboards. Bathroom is understandably small, but it is fine. This cabin is located in a part of the ship that seems quiet and stable...even with 10 foot plus seas, we did not get seasick, just a little less hungry! We saw lots of interesting things from our balcony including porpoises. The rooms need updating or refreshing, just little things like nicks and wear and tear here and there...but very clean thanks to the room steward and staff. Read entire member review >>
Our room was great and balcony had plenty room for two chairs and a table. The room has more than enough storage. As we always tend to over pack for a cruise, Enchantment had more than enough shelves, cubbies, and drawers to hold everything.
Room was perfect size for the two of us. Although the linen is super, the twin mattress on my bed was in need of replacement. Read entire member review >>
Very loud noises coming from wall of cabin and noticeable in several nearby cabins and in hallway. Noise was loud enough to effect our sleeping. Guest relations Manager finally moved us to another cabin (inside cabin on deck 4)to sleep. Until repairs are made i would avoid this area. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin! (a midships / center of ship), location is central to all the activities. Quick walk to the elevator and Center staircase activities.
Plenty of storage and closet space for two people and two formal nights attire.
Bathroom sparkling / clean and roomy for one person. Great balcony view. Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage. Our room was noisy at night because we were over Schooner Bar and could hear the piano and singing. The music did stop by midnight. Balcony was normal and big enough for us to relax. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7118 was an accessible cabin and quite large. Even with the sofa-bed unfolded, there was adequate room to move around for even large folks. The room has only one chair, but there are two and a chaise on the balcony. Bath and shower were roomy. TV is old and small. Closet and drawers were more than adequate. The room is almost amidships and was quiet, but really convenient to the elevators. There is a lot of traffic in the hall, but the door is solid and you really can't hear it.

Much more storage space than I have experienced on other ships in similar sized cabins. Plenty of room for everything and we overpacked as we were prepared for both possible cold and warm weather. Deck seven is a great location on this ship and this cabin was near the middle front part of the ship. This made for easy access to both of the stairways and a quick two flights up or down put you at just about all the different venues. Very quiet location as well. Take some extra hangers. The bathroom had a good size medicine cabinet but I still prefer the over the door shoe holder for my things. Deck seven is right above the life boats - but the boats only stick out about a foot and the view down is not obstructed at all. Read entire member review >>
D1 Cabins 7626 & 7628 (adjoining). The adjoinng cabins made it nice for our 1 yr old - she had lots of extra room to move around in. I thought the cabin had more storage space than most cabins I've been in. The balcony is very small (2 chairs and a table). Cabin location was excellent - near stairs and elevators, near the Library which also served as the Board Game/ Card game room. Shower curtain instead of doors (bring magnet clips to attach at the bottom and ther curtain won't cling to you. I found the bedding extremely comfortable. Room safe operates on number codes. You can't check your Seapass account on tv like you can on newer ships. Suitcases wouldn't fit under the bed - we put the lifejackets there and kept the suitcases in the closet.
