Cabin 8297
Oct 2016
We had a Promenade Stateroom. As you enter, the bathroom was on the left and the wardrobe on the right. In the bathroom there was the toilet, shower and sink. There was a huge mirror with lights either side which was great for doing make up. There was a corner cabinet with 3 shelves. There was also ample room around the sink area for toiletries and a shelf under the sink. In the wardrobe was one high rail and 2 lower rails for hanging clothes and there was 5 shelves, one of which had the safe on. The safe was very easy to use. Outside the wardrobe was 4 drawers and 3 more shelves. The bed was huge, the size of 2 singles together and it had a foam topper which was so comfy! Between the bed and the window was a small sitting area with 2 sofas and a dressing table/desk and chair. There was another huge mirror with lights and 2 small shelving areas either side of the mirror. The window looked out onto the Royal Promenade. We were on deck 8 so the window was at an angle looking down. We were located opposite Michael Kors near the bridge where the bands and entertainment play

Horrific By: Jo Golding
The state room attendant made it clear,her hours were between 9-1 and 5-9 on the first day.Her audible tuts as we inconvenienced her by daring to be in our room when she wanted to wipe a dirty cloth over it was a little surprising.

Cabin 6263

Nice Ship, Nice Ports By: EVdreamer
We had selected an N cabin, where you could be given (almost) any cabin. When we were given 6263, which is directly above Sorrentos and opposite the shops, we weren't so sure. The cabin turned out to be quite big, with space for two settees and one hard-backed chair, desk, small coffee table. The main thing we liked was being able to see what was going on down on the promenade. the first time we opened the curtains, it felt like everyone was staring - but soon others got used to seeing us! 6263 has an adjoining door and we found we could hear the TV in the next cabin, but they may have been hard of hearing! The other side has a storage area and we didn't get any noise from this side. If I had the choice, I would select a PR again.

Love the Independence By: flcruisemeister
We don't often get an inside cabin but the Promenade Stateroom was an excellent value for the money. We wouldn't hesitate to get it again at the right price.

Great honeymoon By: newlywed14
This was my 3rd cruise. The last 2 cruises i stayed in an interior cabin, the extra few hundred pound for this room was money well spent. I am not a great traveller so looking out the window to the highstreet was lovely and made me feel like i was in a hotel not on a boat. Great view for the promenade shows. Noise or light was never an issue though remember to close your curtains when changing, the gentleman in the room adjacent always forgot this! Great for people watching ir if your tired you can still watch show from comfort of your room. We were on deck 8, ship movement was fine, great location meaning we were close to promenade and theatre. Room size was good. Great room. Have booked this type of room on our next cruise in 2016.

My only complaint is the smell in the stateroom bathroom. It had a smell of urine, thank goodness I brought my Lysol.

Cabin 7557
May 2015
I thought this location was great... three rooms in from the elevator bay/stairs. It was quick to get to the promenade, gym/spa, sun deck. It was the opposite end of the windjammer and dining room. You overlook Sorrento's the pizza place which was open until 3am. Didnt notice much if any noise for the promenade at night. We had to make sure the curtains were closed tight to ensure a dark stateroom at night as the promenade had lights on 24/7... but with the curtains shut fully there was no trace of light coming in!

I love the type of cabin and its location. Our room attendant was great and we always had a clean room. The bathroom has some faucet and shower issues, but nothing that really bothered us.

Enjoyable first cruise By: SherryLK714
Room was more spacious than I expected. It was very clean and bed was super comfortable. No complaints at all. It was nice to have a big window overlooking the Promenade. I would book this type of room again with no reservations.

Fine. A little short on drawers, but closet had shelves. A little extra space due to interior window overlooking Promenade.

Cabin 8261
Feb 2015
Nice size for 2 people. Plenty of storage space. Window out to Promenade was nice -but a little strange to look across and see into other people's cabin. Much prefer the shower doors in this cabin to the curtains on some other ships - but it is like showering in a old style phone booth. The water temperature was set too low and we had maintenance turn up the heat, and that fixed that!

Cabin 6577
Jan 2015
The rooms themselves were fine, but located immediately above the Promenade pub and across from the Promenade speakers, which made them very loud until 12:00 at night. If you like to go to sleep early, these are not the rooms for you!The beds were comfy, and the rooms were a reasonable distance from everything. Our room attendant was good, and we always came back to find the room straightened up and clean.

Cabin 6253
Dec 2014
The room was small, but probably not too small for a cruise ship. The "cold" water in the sink was tepid and tough to drink. The mini-fridge didn't really cool. The window was nice in that it let in some light from the atrium, but the curtain was completely see-through so if you want any privacy you need to use the blackout-shade. Overall, it wasn't too bad for 1 or 2 people.

Mostly great cruise By: RocketCity
Great space. Love the second couch. Good for a pillow on the side as a reading nook. Enough storage for us and room to maneuver around. This is our third time in one and it seemed a little bigger. Have been on 6th and 7th decks before. This was 8 mid-ship. Noise level no problem, with exception of two big party nights. Room was over floating bridge and provided a great view of those events.

IOTS Cork and Norway June 2013 By: boingboingbaggy
Accessible Cabin 8315Lots of room for two wheelchairs, wet room spacious but need a bigger shower seat (used a deck chair instead). Closet has pull down rail which in all honesty got in the way for us.No noise at all even over looking the Promenade.Needs settee nearest window to be moveable so a wheelchair could watch the parades if they so desired.Overall very suitable for the disabled cruiser.

Cabin 7581
Mar 2013
PR 7581 is mid ship, meaning a distance from any elevator but has little movement due to sea state. The glass was in dire need of cleaning. The adjoining door allowed noise to seep, and our neighbors enjoyed late night gatherings (college girls in large groups).

Cabin 7309

Fun in the Sun By: Ms. Cruiser
Cabin 7309: The cabin had a wonderful window seat to relax and watch the people roam the promenade. The bad was very comfortable. The closet was okay- not enough drawer space. Window was a little dirty, but still very nice. The one advantage of this room was even being an inside, you had tons of light from the Royal Promenade. Just remember to close the drapes when you change. Great location- mid ship. The shower was small- difficult to shave legs in. Due to the bed having a curve at the foot of it, walking space around was tight. Around the bed was the only walk space into the room. Due to having both a small couch and a window seat, plus a large glass table, floor space was at a minimum.

Promenade window seals seem to be going. Should consider single plate tempered glass.

6563 Next to service area, which may have been where the tapping sound at night was coming from. Otherwise very quiet although overlooking the promenade. Could have done with more drawer space.

Cabin 6323
May 2012
Promende window has partially obscured view of Royal Promenade (sign in the way) and looks over the Champagne Bar. Not a great view of the parades but fine for people watching. Absolutely no issues with noise from Royal Promenade. The cabin has a connecting door to 6321 and there may be some noise concerns if you do not use 6321 for kids etc., however we had quiet neighbours so did not hear much

Indy Med for November By: boingboingbaggy
Disabled PR 8315 Loads of room if you turn the bed around and take out the table. 3 x electric points for chargers etc. Bathroom is a wetroom with a rather small pull down seat so we took our own bath stool as a support to the seat. Lots of drawers to put things but couldn't quite fathom the pull down bar in the wardrobe!! Overlooks the Cafe Promenade but never heard a thing at night, pitch black with the curtains drawn. Seems this cabin is popular as we tried to book in the future but its fully booked for the next two years. Highly recommend this cabin for the more restricted disabled cruisers.

A Wee trip to Ireland By: Host EJNutz
Cabin 7609 This was on Deck 7 and had a window looking out onto the Promenade. The room was nice and spacious. It came with a mini fridge,kettle and hair dryer. One thing our cabin steward did not provide us with cups. There is plenty of staorage of space but it is lacking in drawers. The safe is modern and easy to use. The TV is big and the online account system was good to use. The bathroom was a reasonable size.

Jan 2011
We had a Promenade Cabin which was ok but not worth the extra money. As it was small and you couldn't see any of the parades etc, which is the main reason for booking it. To be honest unless it was a free upgrade I wouldn't bother with it.

Although smaller than normal we had a promenade cabin. I liked it very much as although it was an inside cabin that extra window overlooking the promenade was just great to sit in and watch the promenade shows or just people watch.

Wow! What an amazing ship! By: ann watkins
Slightly disappointing. Lack of drawer space - plenty for a 3 night break but not sure there would be enough drawers if you were on a 2 week or longer cruise. Excellent shower.
