I am usually claustrophobic, but this room was huge compared to others we have stayed in. We had a room next to the kids. Though we did not have internal adjoining doors, we did have the door opened on the balconies which allowed us to walk back and forth. We had a balcony over Central Park. We enjoyed hearing the birds in the morning and violins in the evening. Still would have preferred an ocean view balcony as the ship is so big and steady it was easy to forget you were even on a ship. Room service by Brian was excellent. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a bit smaller than we are used to on smaller ships but just above being cramped. The bathroom was tight but easy to use. Our cabin steward was the best we have encountered in more than 20 cruises. He was unobtrusive but always available when he was needed seemingly any time during the day. Read entire member review >>
I asked for a room close to the elevator as I noticed many comments regarding how long it takes to get around the ship. We never had to wait long for an elevator. Room was toward front of ship overlooking CP / Vintages. There was plenty of storage in vanity (2 cabinets), Closet was big enough. Stored suitcases under bed. Balcony was lovely at night when the pianist was playing (730 to 10pm). We had a room with an adjoining door. Only twice did I hear a child crying next door. We really weren't in our room a lot as there are so many places to sit and relax on the ship. DH likes to watch TV-he stated there wasn't enough new content (too many repeats). Our room attendant Robert was ninja. He always knew when we weren't in the room-and had it tidy before we returned! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adequate and organized. But had unusual noises (creaking, whistling and squeaks). The sliding door to the balcony was in somewhat poor condition and didn't open/close easily. As noted the cabin steward seemed to do his job on his own schedule. Read entire member review >>
Everything about our cabin was fine and our Steward was the Best we have ever had. Our only complaint is that the mattress in Room 10207 has seen better days. I certainly hope someone from Royal Caribbean takes note of this flaw in their ship and I'm sure it's not the only cabin that has this anomaly. Read entire member review >>
The cabin didn't feel cramped or overly humid throughout the entire cruise. The staff that cleaned our cabin was courteous and efficient. The balcony being in the Central Park area was delightful. During the day there are bird songs and at night you can hear crickets and other night life. The sound level is at a minimum which made it very pleasant to sit on the balcony and read a book to relax. Read entire member review >>
The Cabin is large enough, and in fact pretty typical for a Royal Caribbean ship. The balcony was oversized, which we love. We again enjoyed the CP view neighborhood. Our stateroom attendant was not the favorite one we have ever had on our now 17 cruises. However, she was adequate. Cabinets in the cabin provided all the space we needed, and everything worked as it was supposed to. The on-tv services (such as room service orders, billing statement access, messages, etc.) worked just as they should. The air temp controls worked well, which means we stayed comfortable. There was plenty of hot-water. The cabin steward closet directly next-door was noisy for the first time ever for us. That was a disturbance, particularly one night. Still, we would return to this cabin yet again. Read entire member review >>
For our room, we booked a Central Parkview balcony room. Upon booking, we had several concerns. One was noise from the pool deck/park below. Noise was not an issue at all. When the balcony do is closed, 90% of the outside noise goes away. The only time you hear much of anything is when the band is playing at the pool on days at sea (which probably means you shouldn't be in your room long anyway), or your balcony door is open. You do hear the simulated noise of birds chirping during the day, and crickets at night. I believe the simulated noises are on a timer and turn off during quiet hours (1am-8am I think). There was plenty of space to store everything we brought. We packed 4 suitcases (I know it's a lot :/ ) and were able to fit all of them under the bed once we unpacked. The bathroom is small as expected in a standard stateroom. Read entire member review >>
We had park view balcony facing Central Park in the middle of the ship. I wasn't sure how I would like this from a privacy stand point. It ended up not being too bad. The rooms across the way are far enough away you don't feel like you are being watched. I don't think we used our balcony as often as we usually do though because of it. Next time I might just book an ocean view or inside cabin instead and save money. Read entire member review >>
Great room with a sofa that made into a bed. It also has a pullman for more people. We found it a tight fit but it worked well for us. Everything was clean and in working condition. I loved the access to the elevators and especially the pool deck. One set of stairs up and your on top! The water pressure in the shower was wonderful and it was instantly hot. I had the wifi package to do daily work from the room and I had no issues at all. I would totally recommend this room. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was quite nice. We had a balcony and I enjoyed waving to my neighbours. I didn't have any concerns about privacy as there is a sheer curtain for the balcony door.
I travelled with my son and the king size bed was made into twins. It was sufficient for our needs.
Luckily we are not that big because the shower is quite small.
Our stateroom attendant was fantastic. He always addressed us by name and was very helpful. Read entire member review >>
Never again--it was like being in a noisy big city apartment where your neighbors can see in your room (unless you have the drapes shut tight) and you can't get any peace and quiet. Read entire member review >>
Small but not cramped. As we were not in the cabin except to change clothes during the day/evening and to sleep, did not really have a problem. We were overlooking Central Park and it was a great view. Room was very quiet. Only thing that we heard was the vibration of the engines, not noise, just could feel the ship. But that was not a problem. Read entire member review >>
Deck 14 adjoining rooms overlooking Central Park. Great location, very comfortable and spacious (for a ship). Deck 14 is a bit noisy and sometimes we heard the deck staff putting out chairs at 6am. Read entire member review >>
The Central park view was very nice, but next time will do Boardwalk view. Our room was nice, but seemed smaller than on other ships.Some of the storage shelves were useless in that they were too narrow. I liked the fact that we could store our large suitcases under the bed. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 11209. It was good. The shower was small, because we like to take a shower together. There was plenty of closet space and a lot of hangers, which we don't always get on other cruises. They did not over fill the refrigerator so we could put water bottles into it. I really enjoyed it.

Cabin 11233- Central Park View. We didn't have much of a view of Central Park, but having a balcony was nice. With the door open it was quite noisy, but with it shut you could barely hear outside noise. Our beds were by the balcony door, and the sofa was near the closet. Read entire member review >>
Central Park balcony cabins are quiet with calm peaceful views but seem extremely small overall. The bathroom and the shower can only be described as tiny. They do have nice large flat screen TV's... looked to be perhaps a 32". Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony over Central Park. This was great it gave you a place to eat room service breakfast in the morning and it didn't break the bank. It was quiet and relaxing. The room steward was awesome. Suitcases go under the bed and there was lots of closet space with lots of hangers. I couldn't believe how many hangers they gave you. Only problem is not enough electrical outlets. The ones that are there are hard to find and hard to get to. Read entire member review >>
The rooms are not as big as the pictures make them out to be, I was in shock when I walk into my central park balcony room...the area between the foot of your bed and the wall is tight, and also the area between the side of the bed and the closet, every other area in the room is OK.

Our cabin -- a standard balcony overlooking Central Park -- was similar to those on the Freedom class ships, with a few exceptions: first, the shower seemed a bit larger (although still not terribly roomy); second, there is a large, flat screen interactive TV, the best I've seen on RCI ships; third, the electric outlets are located in an inconvenient place under and to the side of the desk, where in order to use it one has to virtually contort themselves.

Our cabin on the Oasis was overlooking Central Park, pretty much in the middle.
The cabin was a nice size, we even had a king size bed which was a surpirse. The bathroom is larger but getting at the closet could be difficult for larger people. It is behind the bathroom and next to the small side of the bed. There is pleanty of room in it though. All in all we loved our cabin and had no problem getting to sleep at night it was very quiet.

Adequate closet space, good sized balcony, quiet location (be sure to close the balcony door tightly, this helps with the soundproofing). Mid-ship location, but still a long walk due to size of ship. We overlooked Central Park but in future will book ocean views; the park view is nice but not all that exciting, like an atrium view in any land hotel. Read entire member review >>
