Cabin 1590
We booked a superior ocean view cabin but were upgraded to a superior ocean view cabin with a balcony on deck 10 (cabin 1590). We were initially skeptical since this cabin received some negative feedback due to its location under Windjammer. However, while there was some noise, it was never enough to bother us. Its location at the aft of the ship required more walking for us but was good exercise.

Cabin 7030
Horrible. Mattress was very worn and in need of replacement. AC did not work. Fridge did not work. Speaker to hear announcements did not work. The TV to look at your account and order services worked only half of the time. Two mornings there was no hot water. Glass on the balcony needs to be replaced. Rust on the floor on the balcony.

Cabin 1072
The stateroom on deck 10 was clean and comfortable and very handy to the pool area and the Windjammer. We just used the stairs. We were situated about 6 cabins aft from the Centrum and could hear none of the music/dancing. Despite being under the Windjammer, we heard no noise. There were 3 adults in this room. It was bit squashy in the evening getting ready for dinner. The balcony had two chairs and a table and was shaded, which was a good thing as the weather was very hot with high humidity. Being on the port side travelling north we could see land and enjoy arriving in the different ports. Both my husband and daughter get sea sick, so the fresh air from the balcony, (and nightly Avomine), alleviated this problem. Plenty of storage space. I took an over door pocket organiser however, didn't need it. I did take some extra plastic clothes hangers thank goodness and some magnetic 9kg hooks that were well used. Manuel, the stateroom attendant was friendly and professional and a credit to RCI. He introduced himself the first day and gave us a business card with a 24hr telephone contact number on it.

Cabin 9202
Cabin 9202 (D1) Balcony. Was very dusty and dirty upon arrival. Called supervisor to clean room before entering. Bathroom had a very musty smell and the toilet blocked and didn't flush several times during the cruise. RCCL acted very quickly to all complaints and gave us a 20% refund on the total of the amount of our cruise.

Cabin fairly spacious with good storage, though a bit tired. No complimentary toiletries, drinking water or ice or ironing facilities. Very thin toilet paper - not quite the 5* promised.

Cabin 9202
Nice location, not far from the centrum elevators. The size of the room and bathroom, as well as the balcony, are more than adequate. There were two of us in the room and there was ample space and storage for everything (and then some). Even the shower was fine with us. I would definitely pick this category and this location again.

Cabin 9236
We were glad that we had a balcony, because on this cruise, as it was so warm, we could sit out drinking our wine and watching the beautiful scenery. A balcony just makes you feel as though you have a much larger space to live in. The cabin had a bit of wear and tear, but nothing awful, everything worked and was clean. It was a long walk from the stairs/elevators, but we wanted that. I chose port side thinking that we would have better views of land; stupid me, for most of the trip there was land on both sides - so port or starboard, you can't go wrong.

First time to Alaska Cruising mom 3
Our cabin attendant, Darwin, was awesome! Our cabin was of ample size for the three of us, though we weren't crazy about the small balcony (which had more to do with the overall ship size than our room category because they all looked as though they were the same size). The balcony size would have been more of an issue on a Caribbean cruise where we would be out on it more. It was sufficient to watch the glacier or the mountains. There was a very slight sewage-like smell on our floor and in our room for the first day or so. Our cabin attendant was very concerned and involved the head of housekeeping who said that they would also involve the plumbers. My husband and daughter didn't notice it at all (I'm the one with the super sense of smell), but I heard others talking about it when walking down the hallway. Whatever it was, they fixed it right away, and I appreciate the genuine concern from everyone and the ability to get it resolved quickly. I don't want to give the wrong impression - the smell was very slight and not really all that bothersome; it was just something I noticed. There was some slight wear that we noticed in the cabin, but it wasn't significant. Our bed was comfortable. My daughter slept in the pull-out bed in the couch, which could have been made into a single or double bed. She said it was very comfortable as well.

Cabin 1574

Cabin 1574 - Deck 10.
A relatively spacious cabin with balcony. Large enough to contain a king bed and a double sofa bed. Reasonable storage spaces - with lots of 'hidden' shelves and drawers (eg behind mirrors). Small bathroom with all necesary items - the shower is small and I wondered how very large people would cope in such a small space. Mainly quiet location. We heard scraping noises above us just before breakfast and just after dinner. This was likely because the cabin seems to be under Windjammers cafe - the noises were probably from staff setting up in the morning and clearing up at night. The noises were not sufficient to annoy us.

Cabin 9550
Plenty of room for 2 people, balcony was good, noise from kids running around in the suites upstairs. Really there's little benefit being on a higher deck other than the initial boarding.

Great spot on the ship because this room, along with a few others extend out in the middle of the ship. You can see the front and back of the ship without much effort.

Cabin 9074
Great room with a good size and a balcony, many locations to store clothes or other items. Bed(s) are comfortable but DO NOT have an electrical outlet near them. Had to get an extension cord from guest services to run my CPAP machine. Shower is small as is the bathroom nothing new for cruise ships. Our room was close to the library so it was very quite. Room steward was OUTSTANDING never needed anything, room was cleaned twice a day and towel animals were nice for adults also. The balcony was very nice for us. My wife is cold natured I'm not, plus we had some friends in the room to watch the glacier, the ladies stayed warm in the room the guys sat outside on the balcony.

Aft balcony stateroom - "prime real estate". Balcony big enough for two chaise lounges and a table and chairs.

The Deluxe Stateroom has a wonderful balcony, extremely comfortable beds, a room divider curtain in case someone wants to sleep & the other wants to read, and plenty of storage space in the closet & drawers. The room was very quiet. We couldn't hear our neighbors at all except closing their cabin doors. The shower curtain wasn't long enough & sometimes the floor would flood as a result, but plenty of hot water & good water pressure.

LOVED THIS SHIP! clemsongal
The shower curtain really needs to be replaced, as it gets up close and personal with you while you are in the shower.....also the water goes from hot to tepid while you are in there and ladies, you cannot possibly shave your legs in the shower! I shaved mine outside the shower with the toilet seat down!

Cabin 9046
We loved the location of our cabin. The 9th deck is basically all cabins with the exception of the library near the centrum. What we loved the most about our cabin was that there were no inside cabins across from us so our hallway was very quiet and deserted most of the time. It was also located in the middle of the elevators/stairs in the center centrum area and to the ones in the front of the ship which gives you access to the Aurora theater, Fitness, Solarium etc. Great location overall.

For a standard balcony cabin it was roomy and there was plenty of storage space.

Cabin 9610
The cabin was fine. Conveniently located to the Windjammer, theater, centrum and dining room. It was clean and spacious enough for two people. The balcony was small but adequate. There was no noticeable noise filtering through from the outside. We would take this cabin again in a heartbeat.

Cabin 9596
Our stateroom had plenty of room for 1 adult and 3 large teen boys. In fact, with the couch pulled all the way out to make a full bed and the pull down bed we could have slept 5 people in our cabin. I used the balcony everyday and it had plenty of legroom to lounge in the sun and relax. I especially enjoyed the glass balcony wall. It made viewing the sea easy from anywhere in our room. Standing at the balcony railing and looking straight down you did not look directly to the sea but to the roof of the promenade. Instead of being disappointed, I was a little comforted that if I fell from my balcony, something was between me and the sea. With 4 people and 9 suitcases we still had plenty of storage room for all our stuff. Only shortage was in hangers which I did bring extras of just in case. The bathroom curtain is the worst. If it's not sticking to you it's letting you flood your bathroom floor.

Great balcony, great location near the centrum on the elevator side of the hump. Would prefer a walk-in closet but plenty of shelving space available. No noise from the elevators and right next to the library, so had a spot to sit to watch the entertainers in the centrum right outside our door. Thought the shape of the balcony would be more cave-like and trap other's smoke but didn't find that to be the case at all.

Cabin 9594
This is a great cabin. It has a larger than normal balcony for the category and has views both aft and out. Some people might say it has a bit less privacy, however. That was not a problem for us. The location is great with the Centrum literally outside the door. The elevators and stairs are there as well and we did not notice any noise from them. The Library is also outside and it's a great wi-fi hotspot. This was our second time in this cabin and we really like it. RCCL does need to do some updating, however. Flat screen TVs would be a nice addition. It's also time for new bed coverings and carpet. They are in good condition but just look a bit dated.

Cabin 8010
We had balcony room 8010. Good things about this room are: great location on the ship as you don't hear noise from any of the public areas, kitchens, bars, theaters, etc. AWESOME location for heading into Cabo as you are on the same side as the ARCHES and Land's End going into port and also, you are on the sunny side for the last day at sea--great for laying out on the balcony on a towel and soaking up those last rays before you head into cooler weather Bad things about this room are: steward wasn't great this time shelf missing in bathroom vanity

Cabin 9660
Great extra-long balcony. You may need to ask your cabin steward to get chaise lounges. It's fun to get breakfast delivered and eat on a lounge chair on the balcony. Shower has a curtain instead of a door. Watch for water splashing out onto the rest of the bathroom.

Cabin 4517
We had cabin 4517. It was a nice size. However, once the fold out sofa was out, it left little room for our wheelchairs to get close enough to get into bed. If some of the extra furniture was removed, it would allow for more room to maneuver. The refrigerator was very handy. The bathroom was roomy. It would be nice to have more electrical outlets.
