I don't know if having a balcony was actually worth the extra money, but it was really nicely laid out and well maintained. Everything was clean, our stateroom attendant was great, and the room was very spacious. Read entire member review >>
No idea how cabin compares with others as this was our first cruise. Family of 5 with adjoining staterooms which were well enough equipped. I would definitely recommend Ocean View balcony. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and well organized. We had enough storage space for our clothing and items. The cabin was on the small side but we really enjoyed the bed and bedding. The room did not get as cool as to our liking. We traveled with others and the interior rooms were very cool as opposed to the balcony rooms. Read entire member review >>
This was a very nice room. Ample space and lots of storage. No need for the over the door hanging bag. There are lots of cubbies to put stuff in. The balcony was average size to us but we love a balcony. If you have never cruised, the balcony is small but still nice for a table and two chairs. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are large enough for two people to live comfortably for a week. You might have to wait for the other person to be done doing something before having a turn, but the size of the room is very similar to a hotel/motel room. Plenty of space to unpack everything you have and either hang it up or put it in a drawer or on a shelf. The balcony overlooks the ocean and has a small table with two chairs. (The chairs were great for clipping your bathing suits onto and letting them dry in the ocean breeze). Cabin was clean, and was cleaned at least twice daily. The room attendants bring you mail every evening (itinerary for the next day, important information, and shipboard offers).
It was very relaxing to lie in bed at night and look through the large patio door and watch the stars at night. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very nice. There was a couch for viewing tv etc., the bed was comfortable and the balcony adequate with two chairs and a table. It was quiet for the most part except when early morning cleaning/prep sometimes made us aware the sports deck was above us. If I were to go on the Oasis again, I would try to see that our room was sandwiched between sleeping rooms. The shower had doors instead of a curtain--which is a big plus, in my opinion.

Cabin was very clean and over looked Boardwalk. The room steward was very nice and attentive. We didn't hear a lot of noise when the balcony doors were shut, unless there was a ship announcement in the middle of the night. We did take a small fan to use at night and it helped with some of the noise if any.
Room for us had plenty of storage and room for our luggage and things. We had no complaints and were very satisfied. Read entire member review >>
Most of the concern for the cabin was expressed by my wife. She felt like the bath room was somewhat smaller with less storage available. The counter top area in the cable seemed smaller, also with less storage available (our last cruise was the month before on Brilliance so the room was still fresh in our minds). My biggest complaint would be that the hanging closets are very close to the bed. Since our large luggage doesn't fit under the bed it is necessary for me to lift it up and over the bed and bedside table to get it into the closet. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine. It was adequate for 2 adults and had a great shower and adequate bathroom. It was effecticely laid out. The hairdryer works very well and as I have long hair it was good to have this.
My only gripe would be that there could have been a little more wardrobe space and shelving Read entire member review >>
Other than having less storage space than we're used to this was an excellent cabin and we have scheduled next years cruise only four cabins away from our cabin for this cruise. Read entire member review >>
Deck 6 didn't have great reviews when I booked so I was nervous... but ended up being super happy with it. Room 6220 is midship. Because we had the drink package, it was an easy trip around the corner to the Schooner Bar or just down 1 level to the fancy coffees. No real negatives about the room except that the bed kind of blocks the closet (no big deal) and there is no cool water. That doesn't sound like a big deal until you have to brush your teeth with warm to hot water. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on Deck 12 near the forward elevators. Perfect location for convenience. This ship is large and we did a LOT of walking! We had a balcony but did not use it very much. I miss it when we don't have one but this time because we were with two other couple, I believe we could have done without it. We were just too busy to relax there.
We had 12560, 12562, and 12564. The balcony divider DOES NOT open between 12562 and 12564. When we booked, we were told that they could be opened. There was a service door across the hall from 12560 and it got very noisy in the mornings. The crew did not close it easy but let it slam often! The cabin was adequate and the storage worked well for us. Read entire member review >>
Ocean view balcony 2/3rds. towards the stern. Pack light because these cabins are small and storage space is limited. We are 2 slim people and it was just a little too tight getting around the bed and a tiny vanity area.
The bathroom was average size with adequate storage for our toiletries. Bed was comfy. Balcony was average about 50 sq. ft. Read entire member review >>
This is a great cabin, but being in the aft, walking from stateroom and back again to Park Cafe is 1/4 mile. Lots of steps, I loved it, maybe some would not.
Our safe broke during the week and was difficult to get fixed as we had to be present and we didn't just want to wait and wanted a definite time to meet someone there. We managed to finally get it done after Nadine gave us a good number to call direct. The room ran warm, we needed to keep the drapes pulled to keep it cool.
I didn't care that the night tables didn't have any drawers but were double stacked shelves. Everything sat out in the open and things were knocked down easily. Read entire member review >>
Superior Ocean view cabin; aren't all the "OceanView" balconies superior? My wife and I were like what did we pay extra for and why is the cabin so much smaller than Freedom of the Seas! Very disappointed it was cramped and just blah! My expectations for this ship were so much higher than the reality of it. The pictures on the website are far better than the real thing. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was great. I like the way they did the bathrooms, there is a little foot rest in the shower which is a very nice touch. Our stateroom attendant was AWESOME. That was the best part of our cruise was Dominic. If it wasn't for him, it would have been really a disappointment. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great-very clean, enough room, huge balcony with table/chairs, decent size bathroom, comfy bed, tv, good sized closets/drawers, fridge. We had D2 category which I researched as having biggest balcony in middle of ship. We were on starboard side so always had view of coming into and leaving ports. Read reviews that said ship old, dirty, smelly but never ever saw that. Ship was updated and clean. Couches in rooms need to be replaced asap. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was what I would expect from Royal Caribbean. Clean, decently furnished and comfortable. The balcony was average, but how can you beat the view of sitting on your own balcony? Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and as advertised with an awesome view. It was close to the elevators and easy to get to from any part of the ship. It was very quiet and everything was in good working order. Read entire member review >>
We had an ocean-view balcony room on deck nine. The room was clean. Great bathroom layout which made it feel like there was a lot of space. In this room, the couch is closest to the entry door and the bed is by the balcony door. The balcony had two chairs and a small table. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was clean and avg size for balcony cabin. Kirk our cabin attendant was awesome. He assisted on getting my suit pressed for first formal night. A/c could have been cooler. It seemed like the cabin only cooled in late evening. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom: We were in room 9196 – A balcony room on “the hump”. Upon arrival in our room our first thought was that it was pretty spacious. Our balcony was large. We would’ve liked it better if the bed was near the balcony door instead of the vanity being near the balcony door – but no big deal. Just the luck of the draw as our neighbor’s room was configured the opposite way.
Our room wasn’t 100% clean. There was a ½ eaten banana in our fridge and some feminine products left in a drawer in our bathroom. Not really a big deal though. I know they turn over those rooms really, really quickly.
I had brought a travel clock along that also included a thermometer. I sleep best when it is cold. The coolest it ever got in our stateroom was 70 degrees though. No problem – we asked our room attendant, Michael, for a fan and he brought us one within the hour!!! Impressed.
Speaking of cold – our fridge never did cool our water bottles much cooler than room temperature. We could not find an adjustment dial so we just dealt with it. Read entire member review >>
Cabin adjoined to to a suite, unbeknowst to us, that meant we had one chair and no couch After lots of complaints, they finally brought us a balcony chair to use. Make sure you don't get an adjoining cabin unless you are adjoined to another Read entire member review >>
The cabin was good. Adequate storage for clothes. The bathroom is compact, and the shower is tight but works just fine. Lighting is good. We had a problem at night with the A/C which seemed to go off late at night. The balcony is OK with 2 chairs and a table. The TV choices are minimal, and we saw CNN and Headline News most of the time. Read entire member review >>
A good size cabin with room for storage. No robes provided, and the hair dryer is not used in the bathroom but at the vanity desk. The A/C was inconsistent, as at night it got almost too warm on our room, but during the day, it worked just fine. The balcony is of average size, and had 2 chairs and a table on it. The bed was firm as well as the pillows. The bathroom was adequate, and the shower slightly larger then a postage stamp (If you've ever been in a European shower you know what I'm talking about!).

Basic veranda room. Could have been better designed. Nice size veranda. My Time Dining is horrible. Agree with others...CATS was not good. It wasn't the cast, butThe play itself. People did leave. Read entire member review >>
Our room was plenty big - there is a lot of storage and hangers - enough hangers for everything. We had a great room steward - Hector - he must have had a camera on us because he always knew when we were gone and cleaned our room everyday - twice a day. We have been on a lot of cruises and he was one of the best stewards we have ever had. We had a great view and were on the "island" side at all the ports. Read entire member review >>
ok. Couch dirty looking. Should have been at least one lounge chair on deck to lie down to relax.Whistling sound from patio door, mostly at night.otherwise it was normal, clean room. Read entire member review >>
Nice Cabin mid ship Port side big enough for 3 only problem we had to stick the sliding door shut because when the sea got rough it slid open and closed all night, apart from that very quiet and close to the boardwalk for that all important hot dog. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony with plenty of closet space as it was a handicapped room. The cabin was just right for my wife to get her scooter turned around inside and she remarked that it was the best bathroom and shower we have had.We always book early to get this kind of cabin and this one was great. Read entire member review >>
Our Balcony Stateroom was more spacious than we've experienced before on other cruises and we were impressed with our very comfortable king sized bed and large bathroom and shower compared to other ships we have sailed on. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin on this cruise was an Superior Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony. I was a little concerned originally because we were close to the opening for the stairs. We did not hear any noise coming from people passing our cabins, even at busy times. Had a great view. Cruise cabins are not known for being roomy, but you make the most of it. Storage space was small but if you are good at organizing that really does help. Read entire member review >>
Due to price drop after we had made final payment, we were upgraded from two interior rooms to two ocean view rooms with balconies. They were both on 7 (one on starboard side and other on port side)in the aft (back). The balconies were much enjoyed, so much so that I doubt we could book another interior room going forward. My wife & I had one room and our kids had the other which gave us both a little bit of privacy. There was plenty of storage for our stuff. It was nice the luggage all fit under the bed. The only complaint about the room was the safe. Didn't work one time and maintenance had to come to reset (they were there within 5 mins). Stopped working again about 3 days later and then didn't trust it any longer. Read entire member review >>
Midship cabin on deck 10. Adequate space for 2 adults, shower was bigger than on previous cruises. Electric outlet cube on top of desk was handy for hairdryer, charging plugs. Plenty of space for clothes, toiletries. King size bed was comfortable. No complaints Read entire member review >>
We were in Cabin 8562 and connecting to 8564. Yerri was fabulous and took care of our every need. Our cabins were wonderful and the second year in a row we stayed in these two cabins. We like where they are located and if we could have taken Yerri home we would have. Read entire member review >>
Balcony room is small on Oasis. Like the rooms with sofa next to closet. Not near enough closet or drawer space compared to other ships and rooms.
We were 6 cabins from front steps and elevators so good location. Read entire member review >>
Deck 14, starboard side, near stern. Nice quiet room to the stern of the elevator bank, so not a lot of traffic in the hallway. Small balcony but adequate. Great closet with plenty of hangers. Small bathroom, but servicable. Read entire member review >>
Stayed in room 6614. We had a D2 room. Superior Ocean view with balcony. Beds were so comfortable, plenty of storage, hot showers, quiet and clean! Since located Mid Ship we were close to everything. I would also suggest this deck because you can take the stairs during the crowed elevator times. Read entire member review >>
We were quite satisfied with our cabin. The closet was a little awkward but overall it was a good size, especially the bathroom and balcony. The only complaint would be the banging of the cabin doors when people just let them slam shut. It literally shook the walls. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 14178 was a great location. Cabin was Forward & Port. Close to Forward elevator banks. Only one flight down from pool deck, so it was easy & quick to get up to the pools. Enough room for 2 adults and all of their stuff. Bathroom larger than expected and had plenty of space for toiletries. Closet quite large with plenty of hangers. Not too loud from pool deck above; Rarely heard music or noise. Balcony was decent size. Recommend it as a room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 10278. It was a nice room with a good size closet and decent bath room. I was a little shocked in how much I could feel the ships engines. We shook a lot, which bothered myself but not my wife. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in Cabin 8562 and 8564 connecting cabins. Great cabins in perfect location. The shower is small, but every cruise has small showers. I felt the layout of the bathroom was great. The cabin had a nice size closet with plenty of hangers. Bring an extension cord for the outlet. Read entire member review >>
Very small for the category of room we paid for
(superior Balcony). There was nothing superior about it. I have had inside rooms of other ships larger and more comfortable.
Other ships provide or allow small hot water/coffee pots in the rooms. The Oasis insisted we have room service bring a pitcher of hot water or coffee. This was very inconvenient. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: 12172 forward handicap accessible
Walk in shower in bathroom with plenty of room.
Bed by bathroom, but not a problem.
Wish bathroom had electrical outlet, outlets under mirror on vanity.
Plenty of storage, suitcases (3) fit under bed.
Balcony was wonderful, plenty of room for two chairs and a table, was able to move them around.
View was not obstructed, no noise and felt no movement, one night had a lot of wave and everyone felt it, but not bad.
Close to elevator.
Never heard our neighbors and they had small children or any hall noise. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was roomy enough, very nice to be able to store suitcases under the bed. The air conditioning was effective, but kept the air too dry - we were coughing all the time from a dry throat. The closet was big enough but sliding the doors back and forth was a balancing act to keep from falling back on the bed. The room safe worked perfectly and we were able to fit our Nikon D5100 camera as well as wallets, passports, etc without any trouble. The bathroom was good, plenty of room in the circular shower, the hand-held shower was useful. Hair dryer provided. The balcony was good sized, no obstructions. The partition between balconies tended to bang in high winds, which was easily fixed with a bit of paper wadded up and stuck in the gap. Bed was comfortable. Bring a power strip if you want to plug in more than 1 thing at a time. Flat screen TV allowed more room on the desk area. The location was good, not too far from the elevator lobby or stairs, easy access to library one floor down. Being aft meant that anything happening at the front of the ship was a long walk.

Great balcony. Middle of the ship was great. Great use of space. Plenty of room for all our stuff. Loved the shower door instead of a curtain. Had a bar for shaving my legs in the shower which was very much appreciated. Read entire member review >>
We were two women dressing for dinner every night and we never had a problem navigating around the cabin. Bathroom and showers are pretty small (but you'd expect that) and I'm sure it would be a little difficult for a man in that tiny bathroom! But we were pleasantly happy about the cabin size, comfort and ability to move around. Beds are incredibly comfortable and you have temperature controls in each cabin. We had a balcony and it was really nice. Deck furniture is not very comfortable though, so you won't spend a lot of time out there. Read entire member review >>
I would book as close to mid-ship as possible next time due to the large size of the ship. I still prefer rooms more aft as most of the activities we seem to do are located on the aft portion of the ship! Read entire member review >>
Small closet, great balcony, quiet location, hallway was quiet because the cabin is towards the front of the ship. Bathroom was bigger than last 4 cruises, bed located next to balcony sliding door. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very nice. I liked the way the closet was arranged and there was more storage. I was very pleased with storage in the bathroom for toiletries. Great view overlooking Central Park. Nice and quiet. Read entire member review >>
A little tighter than equivalent cabin on Liberty of the Seas, but not bad. Short on space for clothing. Convenient location (up one set of stairs to pool deck and down the hall from Adventure Ocean). Balcony was nice, especially when we combined it with the balcony from 14180 where our children were. No problems with noise from above, unlike others on deck 14 have stated. Read entire member review >>
Great view, loved the balcony with the clear wall all the way to the floor. The only drawback was the proximity of the closet to the bed. We are smaller sized people and didn't have a problem, although only one of us could use the closet at a time. If you are a larger sized person it would be challenging to get to the closet. The bathroom at first looked very small, but it was surprisingly roomy after we started using it. The shower stall with it's rounded doors was very spacious. The sink was very small and took some time to get used to. I was pleasantly surprised at how hot the water in the shower and sink got. I love really hot showers and the Oasis delivered on this!

We were in a handicapped room. We chose this room only because there were few room to chose as we made this booking late. Room had extra room because it was a handicapped. It was a D2 but had the space of a D1. Everything was clean a spotless for ship of one year. Shower as expected was huge as was bathroom as it was designed for a wheelchair. Read entire member review >>
Adequate space in the cabins. We had a D2 balcony. Small, under sized closet and safe. Very limited storage space. Terrible vanity area in the bathroom. Better bathroom layout than other ships. Closet open into the room rather than into the walkway. Outlets are hidden under the desk and require you to crawl around on your hands and knees in near darkness to plug anything in.

Our stateroom slept 4...there were 2 twin beds and a couch that pulled out into a double. We did have a balcony, although it was too hot to sit on it. The room was VERY small but doable. There was a large closet with hangers and cubbies. The desk area also had a few drawers. We ended up emptying our suitcases and putting them under the bed (there was plenty of room under the bed). It would be difficult for 4 adults to stay in this kind of room....we had 2 adults, 1 teen, and 1 preschooler. Read entire member review >>
cabin 9216. comfortable. very quiet. crowded for my wife, son, and I - his bed was a pull out couch rather than a pull down bunk. The barriers between balconies seemed bigger thus providing more privacy. I like how the hall doors are set in a couple feet -- the doors open outward, and that helps add space. Seemed like the standard tiny bathroom, but I'm glad for the shower doors. Read entire member review >>
The cabin we had, an category D2 ocean view Balcony Stateroom on deck 8 mid ship. The cabin was not as large as what we are used to but it was fine. It was well disgined and organized.
You could hear the doors closing in other cabins but we did not hear any noise from Central Park which is also on deck 8 and was separated from us by the hallway and a wall. Read entire member review >>
