Our room was an accessible room for disabled travelers. It was perfect and safety bars were strategically placed in the bathroom for our use. The shower had a handheld sprayer and shower chair. It was easy to walk into the shower as well. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was very quiet because of the location! When the beds were made into singles it appeared larger and we had access to the window. I have cruised with Royal three other times and thoroughly enjoy the crew's friendliness and eagerness to "make things right"! This is a testament to their management. Hope to cruise again soon!!!!

e had an oceanview window stateroom, no balcony, which is our usual stateroom of choice. It was a little smaller than oceanview staterooms we have had on other RCCL ships but was ample for our needs. Our room steward was terrific. I do not recall ever having a bad room steward in the 15 cruises we have taken so far. The bed was comfortable. One of the disappointing features, however, was the mini-fridge in our room turned out to not be a refrigerator. It looked like a refrigerator. It had a sign on it that said minimum temperature 55 degrees. It NEVER got even a little bit cold. We brought our own soda pop to put in it and it remained warm. When we talked to our room steward about it, he explained it was a "cooler", like an ice chest. You had to put ice in it to cool it. That was a first for us.
The thermostat in the room kept the temperature to our liking. The air conditioning cooled the room very well when we wanted it cold and the heat would warm it up when we wanted it hot. I like it very cool at night when I am trying to sleep. Most thermostats on ships do not get it cool enough for me. This one did. My wife likes it very warm in the mornings. She would flip the thermostat to warm when we got up and it quickly heated the room. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was just fine and there was enough room to store our necessities. The only things we had problems with were the beds which were hard and we could feel the frame of the mattress through the mattress covering. We also had to elicit the hop of the cabin attendant to get the hot water turned up so we were not totally cold when we took a shower. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great with the exception of bed comfort. The bed was extremely hard and pillows is mix match of different levels of discomfort. In hindsight, I would have given our cabin attendant a tip to find us better pillows and mattress topper.
The cabin location is awkward. 2578 is very near the forward lobby but no guest access so instead had to walk down to centrum, up to 4, back to forward, and then back to two to get to the conference room (poker room). Read entire member review >>
This is an accessible Cabin and it is quite spacious. It has an easy chair, a Sofa, coffee table, 3 Nightstands and the usual Desk with storage. The closet had ample space and was stocked with more than enough hangers. The Bathroom is large. Read entire member review >>
I never thought that I would be commenting on this cabin, but this is the honest truth. We have cruised several cruises and always had balconies or outside cabins on the top deck. Never did we ever plan on booking a bottom deck. We booked our cruise two days before we sailed and had no choice but to take what was luckily cancelled. On deck 2, A cabin with a four foot round port hole. This was the best cabin, the most quiet location, a fantastic view of the water. From now on, we will only book lower and more toward the aft of the ship. It totally surprised us. Read entire member review >>
