Great cruising By: Stuartmcgowan
Obviously not huge but very good for what was required. Very comfy beds. Air con worked well balcony good but below us was steel cover which extended out about 10 ft over the lifeboat below and extended the length of the ship so could not look down to the sea, only horizontally. Well maintained by room staff

Good Cruise But Serious Issues By:
Cabin was the standard we expect from RC. Two plugs to recharge your gear. Bed was comfortable. Lighting was great. Bathroom stunk of sewage the first day (see review). Our housekeeper was sweet and good but got sick halfway through the week, had a fever one day and lost her voice...but kept serving our room. We admire her but wonder if that is why we ended up with colds.

First Time on Royal By: Darcy8
Our cabin was very nice. Loved the location, very quiet. The bathroom is small. Loved the extra space on the balcony. The mattress is very hard and the pillows were pretty flat. If I were to sail on this ship again I would take this room again. Liked that our muster meeting place was in the Coral theater.

The cabins are clean. There was no shampoo or conditioner, only a dispenser in the shower. Our room attendant was friendly but did not do a great job. We had no laundry bag or order form, no room service forms, and though we asked for water to be replenished daily in our mini fridge, it was not.

Cabin 1144
Dec 2016
Our cabin was one of 12 that were newly added to the Jewel earlier this year. On Deck 11, a portion of the Vitality Spa was replaced with 12 balcony staterooms, numbered from 1140-1162. Our cabin was 1144. We were really curious to see how the new cabins were. We were definitely NOT disappointed!. In the bathroom, the basin faucet and the shower head had more than enough steady water pressure for washing hands or showering. You could clearly see that the cabin was new from the bathroom fixtures and flooring to the carpeting inside the rest of the cabin and the new furniture as well. All of the doors and drawers had the "soft close" latches and hardware. The bed was so very comfortable to sleep in....really comfortable linens and pillows and of course the rocking and swaying motion just made falling asleep that much faster and nicer. The balcony wasn't any larger than we've enjoyed on other ships, but the furniture was newer, sturdier and of better quality for the circular table and the 2 chairs. Also, there was no deck above us, so we had an unrestricted view looking skyward and it really made the balcony feel larger than it was. The air conditioning system really could chill down the room if you weren't careful in setting the thermostat. It was a very quiet running unit and put out a lot of cool air very quickly. Best of all, the 12 cabins were located on the starboard side of Deck 11, just behind the bridge and it was a dead end hallway, so the foot traffic was minimal, just the passengers in those rooms and the one stateroom attendant who took care of all 12 cabins.

The cabin was fine - enough storage. The balcony was extended which was a pleasant surprise. Since it is an older ship, the walls between the balconies are not able to be unlocked which is now available on the newer ships. My family had 3 consecutive rooms and we like to open the balcony so that we can easily gather outside together.

Our cabin (a balcony one, on deck 7) was well maintened, but a bit noisy, because a bar was under our room. Next time we will be careful about it.

Plenty of storage space in cabin. Too few towels when taking several showers a day. And very small bars of soap at sink. The shampoo dispenser is underwhelming. You might benefit from bringing a travel size of your own shampoo. No flat screen tv in our cabin.

The cabin is spacious enough for two with a surprizing amount of storage space. The bathroom was nice and similarly spacious. We wer very happy with our cabin and our stateroom attendant was excellent.

Best cruise ever! By: alvie03
Great location on ship. Cabin was in great shape. Starboard side was perfect for coming into and leaving ports as we got the best view. Balcony was great and really was quiet and private. Our room attendant couldn't have been better. Our cabin was always kept spotless and she always greeted us with a smile and asked about our day. Staying mid deck and mid ship with a balcony was really the way to go as we were in the middle of 2 sets of elevators and stairs so if the elevator was busy which it does get at dinner time, we found the stairs to work out just fine.

Pretty standard balcony cabin. It was small but adequate. No surprises, no complaints. Don't get a room on deck 7, above the casino!

Perfect Jewel in Paradise! By: cruisinagainDnR
Our room was 7080, a balcony stateroom which was listed as a partially obstructed view but the only obstruction was the roof of the lifeboat storage below us so you couldn’t look straight down. The balcony itself was perfect for two! Two chairs and a table were perfect for our morning room service of coffee, fruit, and occasionally breakfast! We were watching the sun come up every morning! As far as the room itself, it was nicely sized for two. There was plenty of storage space and compartments everywhere to stow things! The bed was large (queen size) and comfortable and our room attendant (Samy) was friendly greeting my wife and I by name every time he saw us! Everything we asked for from him was brought immediately with a smile! The bathroom was small but workable. Every aspect of the room was awesome! Even the location was perfect! Within steps of the elevators and the Centrum, it was simple and quick to get just about anywhere on the ship!

Cabin 7632
Oct 2012
It was in a nice, quiet location (of course, it was also a rather quiet cruise). Size-wise it's what I'd expect for a cruise ship. The balcony was plenty big enough. Only complaint is directly under the balcony is a roof that covers I think an outer walkway on deck 4. We couldn't look straight down to the ocean but rather had about a 30 degree angle before we could see anything.

Our cabin was fine. We had been on this ship before so knew what to expect. As always you wish you had more storage. Our number one biggest complaint was the newly installed low wattage hair dryer which I found to be a joke. There was a fair amount of under bed storage for our three smaller size suitcases. A good number of hangers. The bathroom while tiny has a pretty good size shower. The balcony door was not in good shape, the weather wear on the outside door handle made it difficult to open.

Jul 2012
The cabin was very small and the closets so tiny the clothes hangers hit the closet door when closed. Worst balcony I've ever had. It was 41 sq. feet, shaped like a triangle, the 2 deck chair took up all the room on the balcony. It protrude about 4 feet in front of the other balcony that were aft of our balcony and faced aft with a view of the entire side of the ship with no overhead covering and no privacy. There are 6 cabins like this on the Jewel of the Seas and passengers should be alerted to the fact that it is a very strange design balcony.

This cabin, although 7 floor below the Vortex Lounge, is plagued by music noise from said lounge. There is also a roof that covers the lifeboats on the deck below this cabins balcony ... it prevents you from looking down at the water ... you have an unobstructed view at an arms (roof) length. This roof is used by the staff as a catwalk. Keep your curtains closed if you are in a state of undress or affection ... and by all means, be totally dress if you are on your balcony!

We stayed in cabin 7040. This cabin has a balcony which is approximately 100 square feet and included two chairs a table and a lounge chair. Cabin was neat and had adequate storage and was in a very quiet location. Cabin size was approximately 160 square feet. The bed is comfortable but small and curved at the foot to allow for space to walk around. This cabin in adjacent to the the forward elevators and is convenient for accessing most of the ship.

Good room... quiet! Far from elevators, so be prepared to walk. You feel the rocking a lot if it is a windy day. Never disturbed during naps or sleeping due to the quiet location. I would stay in it again.
