Much larger than an inside, Nice window. Larger shower. You have to request ice and extra glasses. No umbrella or tote bag. Had to ask for more hangers. Our suitcases did not fit under the very low bed, so we had to put one next to the chair (note it's a chair, not a loveseat) and one in the closet. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was in a decent location and provided enough space, wish there was a little more storage available and hopefully that will be considered in the refurbishment. Room steward did an outstanding job of keeping the room clean and restocking an items that needed to be. Read entire member review >>
3rd deck, midship, starboard side (3574). About 7 rooms from the elevators/rear stairs. Very conventient location. Big window, fairly spacious (had the bed and a two-seater couch). No mini-fridge. Storage was pretty good...we had to get a little creative, but it works. Bathrooms are small but they made great use of space and the showers felt larger than I remember from other “small” ships we've taken...they still had shower curtains vice the sliders, but even still...I had no issue with the shower size. My suitcase fit under the bed but my wife's had to go in the closet. Room had about 16 hangers in the closet). Toilets worked fine throughout the ship. Room steward Rolly was great though he was that elf you hear about (you never see him, but you come back and your bathroom is clean and bed is made...). Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine and while storage was tight, we managed to get everything put away. Typical small bathroom. Nice window for viewing scenery and checking the weather before venturing off the ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is the same as always - no different than any RCL ship. Mattresses could use a replacement, as others have noted, but no complaints, really. The room was well attended and exactly as expected. Read entire member review >>
We liked the location, midship on Deck 3. So glad we were midship as we encountered very rough seas on two of the days. Sometimes we could hear music for the Centrum; glad we were not any closer to the Centrum as the music was loud until about midnight. Stateroom was fine, but smaller compared to Carnival's staterooms. The beds were too low to store suitcases underneath, so we had to have them out in the room. Our two rooms should have been the same but had different amenities. 3074 was missing a painting, just had a dark rectangle on wall were one had once hung. 3074 also did not have hangers for the lower closet bar. No ice buckets. Beds were comfy. Pillows were thin, but our steward brought us some extra ones. Flat screen tv is nice, but there's nothing to watch unless you want like sitcom reruns in Spanish. Bathroom is small, but has good storage for toiletries. Hand-held shower head kept falling off its bracket. Steward kept us supplied with fresh towels and serviced the room often. For some reason, there were housekeeping carts blocking the hallways all day every day. Have never noticed this on another ship. Read entire member review >>
Ours was a standard mid-ship Oceanview cabin. Having been on both the Grandeur of the Seas and Enchantment of the Seas, I knew what to expect. There was plenty of closet and drawer space. In the past, I have put our suitcases under the bed. Now having thicker suitcases, they did not fit. Oscar, our excellent cabin attendant, solved that storage problem. He pulled the sofa out from the wall, and put the suitcases there. The space lost was not even noticed. Bathrooms are typical standard cabin bathrooms . . . short on space to move around. Showers have curtains, which are notorious for clinging to you. Thanks to other Cruise Critic posters, I knew to take a few plastic clips to keep the edge attached. The curtain stayed off me, and water stayed in the shower. Water pressure was great, and there was never a shortage of hot water. Read entire member review >>
Noisy - but realized our stateroom was under the dining room. Heard the waiters rolling the carts across the floor. Bad Odors - In stateroom and hallway to stateroom. The smell of cigarette smoke and paint fumes were coming through the a/c vent in ceiling. Also, there was a very strong sewer smell in hallway. Overall the room was ok. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 3500 is if the bow of the ship. It has two portholes that are inset about 5 feet from the wall. Not much of a view.
The beds are very low only about 16 inches tall and no room for luggage under the bed.
TV is a flat screen on a moveable arm.
Restroom is small but adequate.
The safe in this room is an old small one that says to use a credit card as the key. It had enough room to put just one ipad on it's edge inside. We used a room card for the safe "lock" but that still meant only one of us could open and lock the safe.
This room also turned out to be very near to some HVAC equipment that was always running.
The room is at the end of the hall with a crew door just across from it, that was never a problem.
I would NOT recommend this room, try for one a couple of rooms closer to the center. They would be quieter the farther you go down the hall. Read entire member review >>
Great location right in the center of the ship. It was not noisy at all. Plenty of storage space, though the new sinks take away counter space in the bathroom. Bad smell from a mechanical problem the ship could not seem to get a handle on. Read entire member review >>
Well furnished cabin with two small port holes too high for viewing outside. Smaller than on other cruise ships No refrigerator.No tea or coffee maker. Very old box-type television. Noisy in the morning when ship is docking due to anchor chains being released. Read entire member review >>
As I stated in the review, we were given a handicap accessible room although we didn't need one. It was large but in poor shape. Plenty of storage but few hangers, no hair dryer. It was mid-ship and quiet but it was in rough shape. Needed to be updated, badly. TV so small it was difficult to see from the bed. (Size of old style computer monitor). Oceanview porthole so worn difficult to see out if the sun was shining. Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage -- decent hanging space in the closet; drawers in both night stands; drawers in the desk/vanity; shelves above the safe; shelves behind mirrors on both sides of the desk/vanity mirror; great medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Only problem: finding places to stow luggage. The big suitcase fit in the closet, but other bags wouldn't fit under the bed.
Quiet location, not too far from mid-ship stairs and elevators. Read entire member review >>
Shower too small. No frig in room. Need more pillows for sleeping. It would be nice to have a couple movie channels to watch at bedtime. Prefer to have a safe that we can set our own code, rather then having to use a credit card to swipe. Didn't like the fact that we were charged for soda with room service even though we had purchased the soda package. Read entire member review >>
How many ways can I say tiny? We booked a "large" inside cabin. (I can't imagine what a smaller inside cabin might look like) The room was so small that in order for me to get to my side of the bed, I had to do a big belly flop at the foot of the bed and then wiggle over to the edge. There was no walking space on my side. Senior citizens should not do belly flops for any reason. Read entire member review >>
3126 Outside Category H excellent room with outstanding view on the port side. only unsettling thing was that it is a connecting room and sounds from the adjoining cabin came thru the door much more easily and was noticed a few times during the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Best location for Deck 3. Quiet and right there at the elevators. Mid to Front of the ship is where I prefer to be by process of elimination especially at the lower decks. The back was very noisy especially the last night. This was also the first time I stay on the leftside of the ship (sorry don't remember term). Read entire member review >>
