Bed was big enough with plenty of covers. We did ask for egg crate topper before we even arrived. So our mattress was lovely. There is a small fridge. Plenty of storage in closet and under bed and on shelves. Also plenty in mirror in bathroom. Bathrooms haven't changed. Still very small. Don't drop the soap while you are showering.

The cabin and balcony were smaller than we expected and the balcony had very uncomfortable chair. Windows were very dirty and hard to look through.
However the service provided by Jose was the best we ever experienced.
THANKS, JOSE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Read entire member review >>
Bright and airy, with plenty of storage space and room to move around. Balcony was good sized. Could have used a bigger table there. Closets smelled musty -- worse than on most ships we've been on -- will have to remember to bring air freshener next time. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin on deck ten near the starboard bow and were probably a hundred feet from the flying bridge. The motion was not bad at all and there were no bad smells. We had plenty of space for two people. The décor had a lot of faded seafoam green and blue that I did not find particularly attractive. We had two beds pushed together to make a "King" with memory foam topping the mattress and I awoke to a stiff back a couple of mornings. We’ve had better beds on other cruises. There was also a sofa, bathroom with shower, vanity area, mini-bar, flat-screen TV, mini-safe and a hairdryer.The air conditioning thermostat was on par with other Royal cruises in that no matter how we tried to adjust it, our two options were basically on or off. Our cabin attendant was friendly, did a good job taking care of our room, and stayed out of our business Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin slightly forward of mid ship on port side. Good use of space but mattress hard as a rock. Okay for some but not this couple. Stateroom attendant tried her best with blankets and whatever was available to make it more comfortable and slightly succeeded. Television reception a little fuzzy but who stays in their room that long? Wish they had several more U.S. stations but with an international clientele it is understandable they don't. Stateroom attendant superior in every way, not just in keeping the room clean but learning our names and recognizing us on site. Made for a wonderful experience. Read entire member review >>
Large and clean. Curtain was a bit messed up on top. Balcony is large with two chairs and a table. Sliding glass door to the balcony. Little cabinets in the mirrors in bathroom and by makeup mirror for toiletries. No magnifying mirror. Has a hairdryer and two outlets by makeup mirror. Plenty of closet space and drawer space. Luggage fits under bed. Quiet area, the room is very quiet and the ride is very smooth. Read entire member review >>
My husband and I had a balcony room while our kids had an inside room across the hall. An adjoined room would've made things a little nicer but it was already taken by the time we booked (about a year in advance). The rooms were nice but definitely small when you have more than 2ppl in them. We put our 2yr olds carseat out on the balcony because there was nowhere inside to put it that wouldn't be in a direct walking path. If we cruise again then we'll definitely go with a larger sq footage room. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony cabin near the elevators but didn't hear much traffic. Had people on either side the second cruise who used the balconies for adjoining rooms and shouted between rooms on the balcony when I was (trying) to enjoy the serenity of the ocean. Cabin itself was lovely. LONG couch which was great for lounging. Sandra was my attendant and kept the room sparkling :) Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very comfortable and roomy. Always kept spotless by our cabin steward. While the bed wasn't the most comfortable it was comfortable enough, I never expect a bed away from home to be as comfortable as my own anyway. Shower was small but plenty of room for me, of course while I am not in the best of shape,I am still not obese,and if you are do not expect the regular size cabin showers to be enough.

Even though the ship was filled with 15 year old girls we only heard them as we were opening our state room door. We were below the Windjammer Café and were not in our room during the normal "eating times" so never heard any noise. With that in mind, we did hear them cleaning, vacuuming, moving dishes and silverware, etc. upon them cleaning the Windjammer, which was about the time we'd be in our state room and sitting on the balcony before going to bed. But, once the balcony door was closed, we heard nothing. The only other negative, I like to keep the curtains open at night and this did not work so well when the people in the cabins to our left (1688, 1690, 1692) would turn on their balcony lights. Our headboard was on the wall of room 1684. We would not see their outside light on but could see the three rooms down from us. Easy fix though, flip onto my other side. <smiling> Enough room to store our 3 suitcases under the bed and all our clothes in the closet and drawers. AC worked fantastic. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, close to elevators but with no elevator noise. Having a hump balcony was nice. It puts you out a little further from the vista straight down the ship. We loved the cabin. Read entire member review >>
We actually occupied room 1810 and 1814. They are the newer rooms added at dry dock. Size is small and it's really tight for 4 people. Only one bathroom and sink. I really miss Disney's layout which was leaps and bounds better than this. Obviously it looks nice. Window is huge. It's full length. Great view (but you can see a little of the bridge in 1810. We saw a crew member standing on it once. 1814 is unobstructed. No balcony which is the first time the kids have sailed without one. They didn't miss it. The location foward on deck twelve was awesome. Same deck as the arcade and kids club. Quick access to 2 bars. Crazy close to the gym. Elevators can take a while but they are not usually crowded at the top. Only noise we heard was the faint sound of bass coming from music. I'm not sure where it came from...gym class? the pool? It didn't bother me at all. No sounds coming from above. I would consider it a quiet room. Read entire member review >>
Beside the incident with the toilet over flowing, the cabin itself was very nice. There are no pull down bunks, the sofa folds out to a double bed for guests 3-4, so be aware if you have larger children/older children. They will have to share this to sleep. It was comfortable. The main bed is a king bed and very comfortable. The closet space is very good and the room itself is was very nice. Negatives are there are not many outlets. We brought a expansion which you could plug in for phones and act as another outlet. THEY DO NOT Work, the reason is because the outlets on the dresser are turned to the side instead of being up and down as a typical outlet, so the expansion will not fit on these outlets. That is my only negative about the room. Read entire member review >>
The balcony on our room was outstanding. We had a view from the aft of the ship. There was definitely an impaired view of the water due to the ships architecture, but the additional balcony space made up for it. The room itself was wider than most balcony rooms. I would book this room again. Farther from elevators, but super quiet. Our attendant was very pleasant and attentive. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin, quiet, cozy. Even with the sofa bed pulled at night we were able to maneuver around well. I even fell asleep on the balcony once! Our steward Rosbert was sensational! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great! Yes it was a little worn but what do you expect after so many guests? I would highly recommend getting a balcony room for the beautiful scenery if not the bigger size. I also saw a junior suite and it was not that much difference in my opinion. It just had a tub and slightly bigger balcony. The junior suites also do not get any perks. The bed was heavenly. Room was very quiet. Our steward John, was very helpful, always courteous, and always in a good mood. Our room was on the opposite side of the ship from the Windjammer so we had plenty of exercise.

Great room! 1236 is at the very front of the ship on Deck 10, right near the officers' area and the bridge. Looking at the deck plans you can see that this cabin is right beneath the gym/spa area and one deck down from the pool and adult-only areas. Initially we were worried about noise from those areas but this cabin is very quiet! No noise bleeds down from Deck 11 above.This stateroom is right near the foreward elevators and stairs, so is very convenient to everything! While we found that most public venues we frequented were towards the aft of the ship, it was a quick trip down the elevators to Deck 5 and you can walk up and down the Promenade to get where you want to go.The room is very clean and stateroom attendant John is great!1236 connects with 1238. We had both rooms and so we had the balcohgives you an unimpeded view of the water. To the aft you can see one of the cantilevered hot tubs one deck up. Looking forward, you will see the starbord bridge wing and, if you are coming into or out of port, maybe the captain! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was awesome ! Lots of room for storage. The bed was very soft and comfy we slept very good every night . We had a full size couch for our towel animals . The bathroom was very nice the capsule shower is much better then the curtain I have heard about . Read entire member review >>
Close enough to the forward lifts and stairs, but not so close that it is noisy. Close enough to the pool deck to avoid the lifts and take the stairs, yet far enough to avoid the noise of the pool deck. Nothing bad to say about this room. Would reserve it again. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin Steward was stealth. We rarely saw him, but he was attentive, fast, and thorough. If I had to find something to complain about it would be about the lack of chocolates. Is it too much to ask for a little chocolate on the pillow at night? Read entire member review >>
We stayed in cabin 1238 on deck 10 which was a superior oceanview with balcony. Location was great with easy access to pools, Windjammer and top deck activities. There was very little noticable ship movement even in rough seas. Only drawback was that it is a connecting room with the cabin next door which allows for noise penetration if you have noisey neighbors. There was a crying baby in the adjoining room which woke us up 3 nights in a row before I complained to guest sevices. We were moved one room over to a junior suite 1240 which had been vacated by one of the entertainers who got off at St Thomas. Both rooms were good sized with plenty of storage space. There was no deck noise from above and the location was great for access to most popular areas. Read entire member review >>
7624 is an accessible balcony on deck 7. The room wad very nice and quite spacious. Closet space was very amble but the drawer space was a little lacking. The bathroom was beyond compare, large roll-in shower with folding seat. grab bars around the raised toilet. We had the beds together with an egg-crate and it was very comfortable. We were mid-ships in close proximity to the elevators. It was quite easy to get anywhere we wished on the ship with a minimum of difficulty. Read entire member review >>
Had balcony cabin, #8232. Very quiet, clean, plenty of storage for a 7 day cruise. Balcony was tight, bathroom just a little of the small side. Never heard a sound once the hallway and balcony doors were closed. If fact, it's so quiet you have to open the door to hear the announcements. Read entire member review >>
Nice balcony, quiet location (near library) rarely heard outside voices, adequate storage, comfortable bed. Appreciated having connecting cabins with our daughters through balcony and inside door. Liked the itemized charges to our rooms being accessible through the TV monitor. Read entire member review >>
We were on Deck 10 in 2 adjoining cabins-1534 and 1536. My husband and I had the Superior with balcony which had a connecting room to our kids that had a slightly smaller (and cheaper) deluxe room with balcony. We had the door open most of the time between the rooms and could had the divider open between the balconies for one large, long, deluxe balcony experience. We were a few cabins up the hall from the stairs and elevators- less walking and more private feeling. We figured out the total square footage exceeded that of a Grand Suite, with two bathrooms to boot. If you're going with kids book 2 adjoining rooms the difference is $ is not as much as you'd think and makes for a total upgrade in many ways.Also many less cabins in the 'high rent district' that is Deck 10. Highly recommend Deck 10 whether you're in a suite or an inside cabin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7372 was too small for 3 people. We were told it was the bigger of the verandah rooms but it was very small. The bathroom was tiny. The deck furniture on the verandah was ok but minimalist. Read entire member review >>
Good size cabin, Superb balcony, fairly wide and very long, lots of room for table, deck chairs and loungers. fantastic view, a little far (nothing serious) from the elevators, however just 1 deck below the windjammer for a quick coffee run or cookies :-) Quiet and out of the wind 100% of the time Highly recommended Read entire member review >>
Great sized room, and we were on the 'right' side of the ship (and the literal right side) to watch everything get loaded up in Port Canaveral and to watch us park in St Thomas. Read entire member review >>
We were on the star port side of the ship on the 7th floor. We got to see a lot from that side. Great views of leaving and coming into ports. Sharing a balcony with our kids in the next room was wonderful. The shower was a problem at first till we "figured it out". Beds were very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
We had adjoining cabins 7312 and 7314 with balconies as well as 7315 across the hall that had promenade view for grandparents. Next time, we would consider two promenades and one balcony, for what it's worth. The promenades have great views of the parades, etc. and never too noisy. Also, fairly close to elevator, library, pool, etc. Read entire member review >>
9330 right by the elevators. No noise. Nice balcony and fab views of the side of the ships. Loads of room for clothes and room under the bed for suitcases. We docked our side every day so we had great views. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9316 is located mid-ship on Deck 9. Lots and lots of drawer space, and plenty of room in the closet. The addition of shelves is a nice touch. Bathroom not overly large, but the shower doors are a definite plus! No problem with noise, close by the elevators, and the balcony had plenty of room to sit and relax. Read entire member review >>
Cabin larger than anticpated. Balcony (we asked for the divider to be removed as our friends were next door) huge as a result. Did not hear any external noises. Good corridor decor (helps you find the cabin as each floor has different pictures etc). Good temperature inside cabin. No smells. Clean. Read entire member review >>
oUR CABIN 9662 : WE WERE NEAR THE REAR OF THE SHIP. HAD A LITTLE VIBRATION, NOT REALLY BAD, BUT I SUSALLY STAY IN THE MIDDLE-SO I DID FEEL IT. CLOSET WAS PRETTY GOOD SIZE WITH A SAFE ON A SHELF AND SEVERAL SHELVES UNDERNEATH TO HOLD THINGS. DRESSER IN CABIN HAD 6 LARGE DRAWERS AND TWO SMALLER DRAWERS, ALSO SHELVES BEHIND MIRRORS OVER VANITY, AS WELL AS SHELVES UNDER TV. BED WAS KING SIZE AND VERY COMFY, BATH WAS SMALL BUT THE ROUND SHOWER IS ALWAYS NICE AND MORE ROOM. VANITY AREA PRETTY LARGE. ONLY 2 PLUG INS IN THE WHOLE CABIN, BUT WE WORKED IT OUT FINE. TV GOOD, RUNNING MOVIES 24 HOURS, NEWS CHANNEL, RCI CHANNELS, MORE THAT I REMEMBER BEFORE. NICE SITTING AREA WITH GLASS TOP TABLE AND LOVESEAT. VERY COMFY AND ROOMY. NICE BALCONY 2 CHAIRS AND A TABLE. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very nice and we met Donald our steward. He did an excellent job and made sure the cabin looked great for the cabin crawl. The alligator on the bed was great touch. He gave us cute animals every night and was always there is we needed anything such as ice for the wine.
Love the bigger balcony and we slid the door back between our two cabins on the balcony, sure was nice. I took a hanging canvas closet shelf and that gave us lots of extra shelf space. The bathroom was great, shower had great pressure and the sliding glass doors are one of their best ideas. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is a best kept secret. The balcony is large and has an awesome view. The ports where we docked we backed in so we had an excellent view right from our cabin. The room is wider than normal because it is on the aft corner of the ship making it feel very roomy compared to the long narrow ones. Very quiet location. Highly recommended! Read entire member review >>
Highly recommend the balcony rooms. They make the room feel so much larger and it is a lovely romantic private space to watch the sunsets. Would like to have a slightly larger shower and more control over room temperature. It also would be nice if there was someway to lose the sewer odors in the afternoons, but that seems to happen on all ships. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6372 D-1 Deck 6. The 2 door Closet was only about 18 inches deep and 3 feet wide with shelves at one end and a safe. The bathroom was tiny but useable. Sink teeny-tiny and almost unusable. Shower small but usable...good water pressure and hot water. There was a king bed and full size sofa along with a vanity , chair , and big mirror. LCD TV was good and on a swing-arm. Only 1 outlet in the cabin. Small refrigerator. Cabin was average size for a D-1 at approx 200 sf. Good balcony for it size....approx 6 ft X 10 ft and good view. Deck 4 below does obstruct a water view directly below the cabin, but its minor. Its a fairly long way to the elevators. Cabin was a little noisier than normal....ship noises and conversations and TV noise from other cabins. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9340 (hump balcony). Right off the stairway and elevator. No noise at all. Lots of storage room.
Cabin 8329 (promenade view). Second to the last window on the top of the promenade. The windows are slightly tilted and there is a very nice seat. Not quite as much room to walk around as the balcony room but adequate for a week. Read entire member review >>
#9220 - Loved it - absolutely no complaints whatsoever !!! Balcony was Fab, couldn't ever not have a Balcony now! Plenty of Storage (didn't need the over-the-door-hanging storage I bought! Read entire member review >>
We had a D1 cabin with a balcony and loved it. We slept with our door open every night to listen to the ocean. It was AMAZING. We were so busy on the ship, we didn't spend too much time in the room except for sleeping. It had a couch and was very spacious for the two of us and our luggage. The closet was fine and so was the bathroom. The ship is so amazing (and there are so many nooks and crannies where you can be alone and you forget there are thousands of other people on the ship) that I can't imagine spending too much time in the cabin.

Cabin 7654 was in an excellent area. It didn't have a room across from it, was very close to the midship elevators, wasn't noisy, had a nice sized balcony and a comfy bed with flatscreen TV. It was perfect! Read entire member review >>
Stateroom #1400 was the best and most spacious Superior Oceanview Room with a huge balcony (D1), even with the double sofabed opened, we could open 3 large suitcases on the floor to do our packing/unpacking and was still able to move around easily. Read entire member review >>
