About as good as you can get for an inside cabin. The window overlooking Central Park was quite large and let in a lot of sunlight. Storage room seemed to be a bit lacking but was OK. Water pressure in the shower was excellent, but shower is tight! Bed was very comfortable, but the pillows were pretty poor. Read entire member review >>
This was our first cruise, so we were not sure what to expect and trusted the advice of our travel agent and others when selecting the room. Our cabin was on Deck 10 and overlooked Central Park. At first I was concerned that the cabin was in a corner and next to the stairs and elevator. I called and chatted with RCL folks and they assured me it was a good location….and they were correct. The cabin is the last one in the row/area and next to the crew prep area where they keep the linens and supplies. Next to that room is the area for elevators and stairs. We did not encounter ANY noise from the crew room or elevators, stairs or hall. It was a perfect location as we had no neighbor to our right.
The cabin was small but nicely appointed. Our cabin was laid out with the bed next to the closet and the couch next to the balcony. They were very creative in providing cubbies and areas to store your things and clothes. I overpacked and I still had plenty of closet and drawer space.
We also found the bed to be very comfortable. Note there is not a lot of power outlets. We found one under the bed and there was one on the vanity. We brought with us a power "block" that allowed us to plug in mutiple devices. There is not a power source in the bathroom.
The bathroom was clean. We laughed at the size of the shower. I call it the space tunnel. It is a small capsule. If you are of larger stature, it may feel cramped to you. The small bathroom worked fine for us. Everything about our cabin was perfect. We also enjoyed that our balcony never got blazing hot with full sunlight due to it's location. We could sit out on it all day or night. It was awesome….to sit and listen to the live music at night,eat breakfast in the morning and just relax. The window sheers helped give you privacy without having to use the black out shades during the day. Remember to close your balcony door when you are out on the balcony. To save on energy, the AC will not run while the balcony door is open and your room will heat up quickly. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9615, I wanted a mid-ship cabin to avoid and extreme rocking motion. Never felt any issues. However, keep in mind that the elevators are great and fast and there are lots of them, but they are located at each END of the ship. So booking rooms mid-ship means you have to walk the length of two football fields to get to your cabin each and every time you go somewhere. Or in our case every time we wanted to make a drink with the liquor we snuck on board. After the first day we got use to it, but it's a long walk from either direction. Read entire member review >>
9655 End cabin in great location close to elevator and Dazzles nightclub, but very quiet. View from window was ok, but obscured a little. Tiny shower. Looked smaller than similar cabins beside it. Read entire member review >>
Central Park view room was very nice, clean and well-maintained. Someone said no turn-down service. ???? You've never turned your own bed down? It's really easy. Move the pillow, grab the sheet and blanket/comforter, and pull! I really don't know what this person means??? We have turn-down service on every cruise and on RCCL a cute towel animal on the bed or hanging above it almost every night! Read entire member review >>
As mentioned our cabin was on deck 9 with view of Central Park. We were very comfortable and the cabin was roomy enough for us. Cabin service was great. Our cabin attendant, Ceon was very nice and took very good care of us. Read entire member review >>
Preferred the ocean view balcony, very quiet and relaxing in the a.m. to eat breakfast. Central Park View (had window view) window was large but just too busy to enjoy the greenery.
Overall, we enjoyed either cabin very much for size. There was very little noise to be heard inside and balcony was a nice size. Hallways were sufficient in size, I would rate these cabins, hallways, stairways as a 5/5!
We came on board because of the 'Catch the Wave' Christian Conference and found that the conference room we had was way too small for the amount of people we had there...this could have been better, it is why we initially booked to cruise...and because it was too crowded, we may or may not go to the 2013 'Catch the Wave' conference cruise.

We found the Central Park View cabins to be very spacious and comfortable. Loved having the window seat in addition to a full sized sofa sitting area. Lighting around the bedroom mirror was helpful, and having different light options in the room was also appreciated. Hairdryer worked well. We also very much appreciated having WiFi available in our stateroom. Bathrobes in the closet were also a vice touch. Read entire member review >>
We had a cabin with a balcony over-looking Central Park where you can eat, people-watch, sun or enjoy the fresh ocean air. Room size mid ship (cannot remember cabin #, sorry) is adequate for 2 people with enough closet space. Room service is impeccable (twice a day) & they even make animals from folded towels. Washroom was a fair size but lacked counter space. The stand up shower might be a tight squeeze for "heavy" people. I am 5'6" 145 lbs & found it just right for me. Read entire member review >>
Central Park View Stateroom. Great location. Close to elevators, Central Park, Dazzles Lounge, Windjammer, Pools. Quiet room. Nice view of Central Park and floating bar. Very comfortable bed. Not enough outlets, bring a power strip. Room smells clean and air conditioner works great. Read entire member review >>
The cabin really had no view. It has a porthole, but when you look out of the window, all you see is a glass enclosure which is over parts of Central Park. If you wanted a Central Park Balcony cabin, I would want to be on deck 11 or higher for any kind of a view.
The cabin must have been designed for skinny midgets with little clothing. You were able to slide 2 suitcases under the bed easily. The cabin had 2 drawers, 6 shelves and a few tiny shelves behind doors. Even the nightstands had small shelves instead of drawers. The 6 foot wide bed was very comfortable and dominated the cabin. You also get a couch. The closet has a safe but here comes the problem. Because the safe and shelves take up so much room, the door only opens about 12 inches for you to hang your long clothing. Since they give you two bathrobes, you really only have about 8 inches for long clothing. On the other side of the closet you have two bars for hanging short clothing (shirts, shorts, folded slacks, etc).
They give you a desk with a beautiful mirror but the 2 outlets are under the desk. You either have to crawl on the floor to plug anything in (or stand if you are the aforementioned midget) or, if you are smart, plug in the extension cord that you cleverly brought with you so you don't have to do this every time you want to use the outlet.
The bathroom has a shaver outlet and everything else you need. Sort of. The sink is about 27 inches from the floor. The 16 inch by 10 inch oval sink was fine for the aforementioned midget, not for full size people. The shower door opened about 20 inches wide. Many people would not fit. There were 2 hooks in the shower to hang bathing suits, not a clothesline which works much better. The water pressure was fair at best.
The room came with an interactive TV (no instructions). You could check your folio on the TV (I'm glad I did. I found 2 mistakes. Make sure you check it daily). You can also check the restaurant menus, the restaurant availability and the shows that you have booked. This was a VERY nice feature. There was a master switch in the cabin which must be on before you can turn the other lights on. Again, no instructions. The safe, of course, had no instructions either. Read entire member review >>
The Central Park view cabins are excellent. I would not recommend the boardwalk as it seemed very noisy most of the day until about 10:30 PM. Make sure you get a cabin close to the center of the ship with cabins above and below- we liked the 9th,10th and 11th floors on this ship- Also not all cabins can carry 3 or 4 passengers- if you book early you shouldn't have a problem.
