Excellent inside cabin. Brand new in Spring of 2015. Plenty of space, clean and well decorated. Like the new bed style. High enough to store suitcases underneath and room to get around the sides and end of beds. Read entire member review >>
The room was clean but it's definitely showing it's age. The bed was very uncomfortable but the room steward was kind enough to place an egg crate on it for us. We had the beds pushed together but there it a wooden frame around both beds that cause a gap in the middle when the beds are pushed together. It's basically like sleeping on two separate beds anyway because you can't sleep in the center. The bathroom is small and tight with a little storage space in the mirror. We always bring a shoe organizer for the door and place our toiletries in there to save space and keep our room and bathroom clean. The shower pressure will take your skin off but it's adjustable. Plenty of hot water in the shower. The same cannot be said for the sink. The sink pressure stinks and the water never got hot. Plus, the water in the sink sometimes smelled like rotten eggs. The room is very quiet with it's end of the hall location. The only noise we heard was an awful loud banging noise on the 6th night of the cruise. The room steward told us it was because of the rough seas. He said the crew never slept when the seas were rough because that sound always happened. Thank God it was only for one night or I would have been miserable. Nice room and a nice location. Read entire member review >>
Deck 9 is the best deck on this ship. There are no public areas above or below and it is only 2 flights up to the pool deck and Windjammer.
The biggest thing that stood out in our room was how Quiet it was. We didn't hear a noise from any other room the entire trip. The second things was the comfort of the beds. Best beds I have slept on in a cruise ship. All 4 of our beds had nice memory foam toppers.
The room is a little larger than the usual interior room at about 160 Sqft. It allows for a sitting chair and small table in front of the TV. It makes it feel a little more livable and also helps when accessing luggage. The Closet is a little small still.
The bathroom is about the normal size but a nice feature is a circular shower stall with doors instead of a curtain. The vent suction was strong and the water pressure was also strong. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6699, inside: Small but enough room. Would not recommend for sailings longer than 5 nights. Great for those on a tight budget or who like total darkness when they sleep.
Located a bit distance from elevators but great that the dining room Galileo was only two decks down and the royal promenade one deck down. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was almost perfect for us as we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Being on Deck 6, you are just one deck above the Royal Promenade. This is perfect for the parades and parties as it makes it very easy to take the stairs. Or, you can simply walk out to the open area on Deck 6 and watch from there.
This stateroom is located at the very front of the ship, which means it is far enough away from all the action that you didn't hear any noise from the parties going on all over the ship. In this are, just below is the top of the theater. We learned from our back stage tour that the back drops are recessed into the ceiling three decks above the stage, which is on deck 3. There is no noise coming from below at all. There are staterooms above this room on Deck 7. This room is the last inside room at the end of the hallway. Being in the very front of the ship, there was little foot traffic to speak of and it meant that we only shared one wall with another stateroom. We had a hallway to the left, in front and behind our room. In all, it was very quiet.
The room is very standard with the torpedo tube shower and small bathroom. There are shelves in the bathroom to the right of the mirror behind a mirrored door. These are just large enough for toiletries and electric razors. There is also a plug especially for electric razors in the ceiling to the left of the mirror.
The closet has ample space for our 7 day cruise for two, with two formal nights. We also had a safe that was large enough for an i-Pad, camera lenses, a Kindle and a variety of other smaller items. I even put my digital SLR in there with everything else a couple of times. The close had extra pull down rods to be used like a closet organizer with shirts on the top and pants on the bottom with long dresses to the left. There were also shelves to the far left above and below the safe that were large enough to store carry on bags such as backpacks and camera bags.
The counter/desk area in the stateroom is small with three drawers on either side. The mirror here is lighted and this area serves as a makeup area with a blow-dryer in pull out drawer to the right. There are doors that open to the right and left of the mirror to reveal shelves for storing small items such as pill bottles or sunscreen. This is also where the flat-screen TV is located on an articulating arm. Above that is a small shelf to keep things like sunglasses and the like out of the way so they don't clutter the desk area. Below the TV is the minibar which keeps things just a few degrees cooler than the stateroom temperature.
The bed was high enough for us to store our luggage underneath the bed, leaving room in the closet for shoes, clothes and other items. Very large luggage won't fit here though. We put two roll-away suitcases and one roll-away garment bag under the bed.
There is little room to move around the beds when configured as a single queen. the small couch is nice as is the small coffee table, but combined with the chair at the desk, there is very little floor space. There is a light switch near the bed that turns off the lights in the room and a lamp on either wall that includes both a reading light and a standard bedside lamp. Very handy! There is a small nightstand that includes a lip around the edge so that small change or other items don't roll-off and get lost under the bed. The nightstand includes a small drawer as well.
Did I say small too many times? I really can't. This room is small, but it was perfect for us. We don't spend much time in the room and don't care much for a balcony when all you have to look at is open ocean. Nice little place. We'd stay there again! Read entire member review >>
Quiet location. Lots of storage. Deck 6 was very convenient to the Royal Promenade and other interior public spaces. Liked the flat-panel swivel television and the curtains that could separate the sleeping from the living area. Read entire member review >>
