WE took a guarenteed room this time to save alittle money and it was wonderful for what it was. Right up in the front and because of that the front wall was angled out so there was more floor space then normal. We had a great room steward or our whole cruise would have been a big waste.

Standard ocean view with balcony stateroom. Convenient to the elevator. Quiet other than a bit creaky in rougher waters at night. One day the toilet wouldn't flush. They were there to fix it within five minutes of reporting the issue. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was OK, nice big window from which my 4 y.o. loved to watch the sea and other ships. The only problems is that you can hear the machinery underneath start and stop at all hours, and sometimes pretty loud clanging would wake us up. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 6556. It was an ocean view balcony cabin. We enjoyed the room very much, but learned that in the future, we will probably save our money and opt not to have a balcony room again. We just didn't end up spending much time in the room and we got very little use out of the balcony, if I am being honest. Read entire member review >>
We had two rooms, one had the bed closer to window and other room closer to bathroom. Rooms were spacious, but felt with bed closer to window gave us more room. Rooms was clean, we enjoyed the tv selection for some late night viewing. Read entire member review >>
During check-in at the cruise port, we discovered a surprise upgrade to this 175-square-foot wonder of ergonomics and technology from 8145, a Category M inside cabin. Although the closet came with about 25 wooden hangers, we brought about 20 more hangers to accommodate our clothes.
We only saw our efficient steward a couple of times, even though he cleaned our cabin twice a day. But all it took to get stuff done by him was a written note or a request to a fellow steward.
As much as we enjoyed being able to look out the window, we would never voluntarily spend the $150-plus per person that it normally costs to book an oceanview cabin over an inside one. We were never in our stateroom enough to justify such a price increase.
One tip: there's typically enough room under the bed to store even fat pieces of luggage. Store all your bags under there and you free up the closets enough to use the fold-out lower hanging rack. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and roomy (for a ship stateroom), the attendant prompt, and the balcony view certainly worth the cost. The beds were pushed together when we arrived, so we asked for them to be separated and it was done by the time we came to the room the first night for bed. Our room was in the middle of the ship, so it was an equal distance to either end of the ship we were trying to get to. And we never heard any noise from surrounding cabins.

Our cabin was just perfect ,
Big enough for all our stuff , we took the ocean view as we did not wanted to take inside cabin and the upgraded cabin were already cost too much,
we were at the front of the ship which was good for us as not much noise from fallow passengers Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean, had good cabin attendant. No problems until the toilet started overflowing on numerous occasions. Did not have electricity in room for over 4 hours one day, we were told a block of rooms on that deck were without power. Read entire member review >>
Cabins were clean, lots of storage and the bathrooms were a good size. The beds were very comfortable and we loved our ocean view balcony. The walls are thin so we had kids banging on the walls from next door and slamming the closet doors. The air conditioning automatically shut off when the balcony doors were opened. We slept with the doors open on at least 2 nights as the breeze was great and we loved hearing the waves outside. The TV is very limited so don't worry about the kids watching too much as there isn't much on. Note: due to the "save the waves" campaign, there are no garbage bags and the towels are only replaced on request. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was very nice. It featured a Royal King which was more than enough space and all the amenities you would expect. Oasis has an interactive menu system that allows you to order room service, book shows, dinners, etc., which we found to be useful. The room itself was a decent size and sufficient for two people without going overboard on a more expensive stateroom. As nice as it was with the oversized window, I would guess that daily life is much different in the more elaborate and larger Suites Oasis has to offer. For basic traveling though, we were very happy with our room and enjoyed a beautiful view of the ocean when in our room. Read entire member review >>
Previously we had stayed on Deck 8 in an Ocean View Cabin with a balcony but never spent any time on the balcony, so we decided to stay in just an Ocean View Cabin and chose this location because we were able to get three cabins near one another. I am not sure I would choose the location again just because we are elderly and it was quite a long walk for us. However, we absolutely love staying on Deck 8 with Central Park. The room was quite comfortable in size and the bedding very comfortable. The sofa came in handy for storage as we rarely sit around in our cabin when there is so much to do on the ship.

We had connecting Oceanview rooms 8102/8104. They are in the very front of the ship overlooking the helipad. There was plenty of room for us 4. (can't imagine sleeping 4 in a room although the couch pulled out to a bed). It was invaluable to have 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs, and a quiet place if someone wanted to take a nap. I think we'd get similar rooms next time. We didn't miss having a balcony. And Deck 8 is a great location. There was a bit of movement of the ship when we were out in the ocean on the first 2 days. You could especially feel this while lying in bed but can't imagine anyone getting sick from the subtle shift. We loved how the stateroom tv had your ongoing bill. I could verify every night with the kids what they were buying. I think this kept them more conscious of their spending. Read entire member review >>
Big room for 2 people! Right under the bridge, but couldn't hear a sound from them. Very quiet overall, never heard anything out of the neighbors. Bathroom is sufficient with lots of shelf space. The closet had a couple dozen hangers, so I'm glad we didn't bring extra. Read entire member review >>
Great room for 2 people. Plenty of space. It's the front of the ship, so the window is tilted 45 degrees, but it's huge. Very quiet part of the ship. Right under the bridge, but couldn't hear a thing. Bathroom was adequate and the shower was perfectly fine for a 6'2 person. Plenty of counter space. Read entire member review >>
Since we were only three people we had a basic stateroom. It was tiny, but I thought it was cute. We were only sleeping and getting dressed in there. There was two beds. One was a normal king sized bed in which you could separate into two full beds. There was a couch that could turn into a huge bed. The TV had a decent amount of channels and there was a lot of areas to put different things it. I had a separate section for jewelry and clothes. The closet was a very good size. The bed was comfortable. The balcony was very nice. Our view faced the ocean. It was very relaxing. Both the room and the balcony were very quiet. I fell asleep quickly. The bathroom was tiny but it was nice. There was a good amount of space to put things. I liked the shower. It was a cool design! Read entire member review >>
7524 is excellent: low traffic area, low noise, no ship movement noticeable, great layout. Great view of ports.7526: same as 7524, but with reverse layout which is a little less functional.3634: high traffic since it's on a busy floor, can feel more ship noises than on higher floors. Also can hear people walking hallways at all hours. At the time of our sailing, there was a mild but noticeable smell of cigarette in the cabin. (It's in a non-smoking area).

Our cabin was beautiful. The bathroom was bigger than on the smaller RCCL ships. The interactive flat screen TV was super!! The closet is much smaller than on the smaller RCCL ships. Our cabin 3180 was directly under the Disco on Deck 4. The Disco was opened about 11pm or midnight and was opened till 3am to 4am. After the Disco closed they would move the furniture around. The BOOM BOOM BOOM of the base was awful!! Don't stay on this side of the ship on deck 3 or 5!! Unless you like the noise. Read entire member review >>
There are 37 different grades of cabins, many of which are similar to cabins on other Royal Caribbean ships. The cabin and corridor decor is rather 'understated' (bland) although this is preferable to 'garish'. The standard cabins are comfortable but not over generous on space. Read entire member review >>
