The rooms appeared to be much smaller than Carnival's. Not saying that it was smaller (as I did not compare square footage) but it felt that way. It may have just been the setup.
The bathroom was very tiny. Shower was a tube that I (5'5") lady could barely wash my hair with out banging my elbows on something. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, while small as expected, fit all 5 of us comfortably. One king bed, two twins, and a pullman (twin bed pulled down from ceiling. The stateroom attendant put our room back together (securing the pullman in the ceiling and the twins in the couch) each day so we had ample room during the day. Each evening he again "prepared" our room. We had to make no efforts at all to complete the accommodations. Read entire member review >>
The cabin space provided everything we need during our 7 day cruise. The space was well designed, and we had plenty of storage. The size of the balcony was larger then expected and the view was unobstructed. The location was quiet and conveniently located with close access to spa, fitness, entertainment and elevators. We enjoyed the convenient access to the juice bar in the spa area. Fresh custom ordered juices where provided daily free of charge with the beverage package which was a great way for us to start the morning. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was big enough for two adults and a child. The balcony was amazing. That has spoiled us now. Very clean and enough storage for our clothes. Able to put the luggage under the bed. The desk/vanity provided storage space and a mirror to apply make up. Read entire member review >>
Beautifully maintained.... I was surprised at how much more room there was that I thought. Great beds -- we all slept so well. I loved the balcony!
Our stateroom attendant Wilfred was the BEST! Read entire member review >>
It could be a little bit cleaner once we arrived the fist day. We found some dirty things of the last guest. Also the glasses werent clean. But in general it was ok. We enjoyed to have a balcony and to have breakfast there. Read entire member review >>
Our chamber attendants were both wonderful people. June and Maria took good care of us. I spent half of the week with the flu, but they kept the room nice and made nightly towel animals to entertain the kids.
As for the cabin i was a bit disappointed that both rooms were smaller than those on the independence of the seas. They may have been the same, but the layout made them feel tighter if you will.
My bed was lumpy, but for a cruise ship, what do you expect. Only reason i am commenting is that i spent so much time in it.
The couch in 9204 was really torn up. So for a ship that is only 5 years old or so, much of the ship has some wear and tear on it. Read entire member review >>
It was rather small and cramped with limited storage space. Bathroom was equally small and shower would be a challenge for anyone with any girth. Room was always kept very clean and there were no issues with maintenance other than the occasional toilet not wanting to flush. Also the room was very quiet and you never heard your neighbor or the cabin above yours. Read entire member review >>
There were 3 adults (ages 65, 38, 33) and one 3 year old in this room. It was much too small considering we had to spend one whole week in this small self- contained area. Each person had 2 suit cases, and two carry-ons, which totaled 16 pieces of individual luggage. Tempers flared occasionally. I think more attention should have been spent on the design of the rooms, instead of the extra fluff of the seven adventure areas. At times, we became quite claustraphobic. We made accommodations by living out of the suit cases and pushing them under the beds. We put one phone stand in the closet to allow for more space. Walking around each other was nearly impossible. So we had to sit down on the bed as one person moved from one area of the room to another. Other than this inconvenience, the trip was fantastic!!! Read entire member review >>
the bed was awkwardly caving in on both sides but no biggie. We would have loved for a room tour at the beginning. We didn't know we had a fridge until the day we got off! but besides that everything was perfect! loved it! Read entire member review >>
Loved this cabin location, no hallway noise and on the same end of the ship as Windjammer. It has bunkbeds for the kids too, which they thought was super fun. They don't put them down automatically, so ask housekeeping to be sure they do that for you. I get motion sickness, so I liked the location for minimal movement. Read entire member review >>
I would pick this cabin again. It is in the front but close to the exit and the Solarium is just a few floors straight up and you can get breakfast or lunch their as well. The closets are smaller than freedom class but still plenty of room. This room has the bed by the balcony door and gives you more room to get in and out of closet. Our last room on Allure the bed was by the closet and its just too tight. I would check this out before booking again on a large ship. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was the first one with a balcony on the starboard side of the 10th floor. For those who like to keep the door open for long periods of time, this is a great option, as no one is smoking upwind of you. Read entire member review >>
The size of the cabin was very good. We were very comfortable and the balcony was great. The kids had bunk beds and there was good closet and storage space. Bathroom was small but it worked. There was a king bed and queen sleep sofa. We had plenty of room for a party of 7. Read entire member review >>
not a lot of storage but i imagine this is normal for a cruise cabin, the balcony was a good size, we spent very little time in room, bed slept wonderfully, kids couch laid out into a nice size for two little ones Read entire member review >>
Pros: Cabin had plenty of storage. plenty of room and balcony was nice. Cons: the fridge is stocked with RCCL items so it cannot be used for your own items. I would have loved a foot stool or a lounger of some sort on the balcony. I cannot get comfortable sitting with my feet hanging down in a straight back chair. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was beautiful. Very comfy bed and very roomy. Great closet and storage space. Great view from the balcony. Very rarely did we ever feel the ship move and the odd time we did it was ever so slightly. No complaints!!! Read entire member review >>
The balcony cabin was a bit smaller than we had on Holland America but it was nicely appointed and new. The service was exceptional and the service people are friendly, helpful and cooperative. Treat them well and tip them wee if you are so inclined. I prefer to strike up a conversation with them and found them to be quite informative. Read entire member review >>
Room Size: We had four people in one room with a pull out couch. I would have preferred a bunk bed like some of the other cruise ships. The room was tight to begin with and with the bed out it made it virtually impossible to walk around in the room. I am glad we had a balcony for this reason. The bathroom was just fine and the shower even though small it had great pressure. We also had the luxury of space for storing our bags under the bed. The TV and the channel selection was perfectly adequate and it always had programming for the kids. Read entire member review >>
Deck 11 aft.
Closet space horrible - limited room and poorly designed.
Electric plugs in terrible location under vanity. Could not reach them.
Bathroom sink way to small and very LOW. Very little counter space
Balcony sheer curtain attached to heavy curtain so when you open balcony curtain you cannot close sheer curtain. This allows no privacy in port and lets in sun/heat during the day. Read entire member review >>
