Very poor. On our return home, my wife and myself have been sick for two weeks. We disembarked with the virus and haven't been well yet.

The cabin itself was fine. Clean and well taken care of. The mattress on the bed was terrible. Hard as a rock. The cabin steward found an additional mattress cover to go on the bed but it didn't help. Grandeur needs to update that feature. The TV itself was good but selection compare to other cruises lines we have been on were a bit lacking. Plus, it would have been a nice feature to be able to access our account on the TV, again, as we have done so on other cruise lines.

Basic ocean view room with very small bathroom, but stateroom attendant was excellent.

Great people, fun cruise Sailor's Girl

This is a new category of room carved out of spaces on decks 7 and 8 that were formerly the library, internet area, future cruise desk, and concierge lounge. They feature large windows, and include the area that is the balcony in other rooms on 7 and 8. We had mixed feelings about the room.

The Good -- The extra space was wonderful. We had a full-sized sofa, a refrigerator (a nice surprise in an ocean view), and space between the end of the closet and the desk/vanity to stow the large suitcase (instead of trying to cram it under the bed). The vanity had three very long drawers and three short ones, and we were able to stow our stuff easily. There was also a safe, and a shelf with railing. Storage and floor space were great.

7088 is on one end of the group of 4 POVs, the window covers about half the outside wall (as opposed to the entire wall in the center two rooms). It's still huge, with a ledge wide enough to serve as a window seat. The ledge also doubles as the bedside table for that side of the bed.

Our bed was at the far end of the room, next to the window. We noticed that in another POV, the bed was at the end by the bathroom and the vanity and sofa were near the window.

The bathroom was standard with the tiny shower and curtain. The shelves and drawers are handy, and since March RCI got smart and added a soap dish to the sink. They seem to be stuck with the sink faucets that are too short to really get your hands under.

The location if the room was a definite plus. We were near the main elevators and stairs, two decks up from the dining balcony and theater, and two decks down from the Windjammer and pools.

The Bad -- Noise was a problem. We got some noise from the Centrum, mostly at the end of the room near the door. It was usually okay, but one night we wanted to go to sleep early because of an early morning excursion, and it was annoying. A bigger problem was the symphony of squeaks, scrapes, bangs, etc. that seemed to come from the walls and ceiling, especially during rough seas. This could go on for hours, and kept us awake more than one night.

Bottom line -- We loved the location and space, but didn't love the noise.

Clean and well organized. Minor gripe was where to stow the luggage.

Our cabin was lovely. We had a balcony with large windows and a large sliding door. The newly refurbished cabin was delightful. Great colours, lots of space and our cabin steward kept everything spotless. He was excellent. Our only complaint is the SMOKING OF OTHERS drifting into our cabin and over to our balcony. That spoiled it for us.

We had a superior balcony on deck 7.I was spacious for 2 but a little cramped for 4, but as we are a close family we got along fine . The service was excellent the cabin clean.Next time i would probably go for a family suite.

I think the ship really needs to be modernized our TV was 12 inches old fashioned and worked on and off. Our phone was the old princess style so you got no messages.I will say this compared to the Oasis which had no storage drawers but 3 little ones and a little closet , There was plenty of storage and drawers in both rooms. The suites had large walk in closets. Pools very small and so over crowded not enough seats. This ship and staff are not handycap friendly.we saw a few people struggling.

Great view, however, we were one floor below the pool area. Not for light sleepers. You could hear chairs being moved around.

Very nice cabin with plenty of storage for two people. Luggage does not fit under the bed so you have to store it in the closet. The bathroom was ok except for the very tiny shower and low water pressure in the sink.

This was an older ship and the room did some signs of wear. The safe that we used had to have a credit card other than your room key. That ment I needed to take my walet, I prefer to leave it in the safe. The room would heat up fast when doorwall was open.

Cabin was a little noisy at night as it was right about a lounge, but it didn't stop us from sleeping. We were the last balcony on the starboard side, so we only had one neighbor.

Bed too low for suitcases to fit under, quiet location, plenty of closet space, lots of drawers for clothes

Lots of storage space; medicine cabinet in bath; frig. TV screen was small but this was more than adequate for two we didn't use all the space! Balcony is small but that didn't matter to us.

Cabin- Our cabin was a balcony stateroom. For a cruise cabin, it was of decent size and had a good amount of storage space. The bathroom was a little bit worn but was clean. the balcony was a decent size,however, they could have fit a bigger table on the balcony. I highly suggest going for a balcony stateroom.
