Best cabin ever: the cabin itself like a regular junior suite on this ship, but the balcony was just WOW: I would call it a wrap-around porch. We had a real round table with two chairs where we ate many of our meals AND two sun loungers and lots and lots of spare space. The cabin was very nicely taken care of and in very good repair

8062 JS. OK not WOW! I am 6 ft 1 inch. I could not shower in the cabin, not sure if the floor in the bathroom had been raised but if I lifted the the shower up the water stopped running. I had to shower at the Spa each time or kneel down in the bath. I think if RCI were less enthusiastic about naming their rooms they would call this one a larger sized balcony room. Suite lends itself to have you believe you may get something extra not just an undersized bath robe.

our stateroom attendant was excellent. Always around and kept our ice cooler filled. The refrigerator did not stay shut, so even though these refrigerators are not known to keep things cool this one was even worse. In our 37 cruises, we’ve never had to complain about neighbors, but we had a Chinese couple next door that invited their extended family/friends into the cabin for balconies parties between 11 pm and 3 every night. After about three nights in a row we addressed it. RCI was quick to respond, adding that they had already fined them regarding smoking in the room. Other than an occasional outburst when they returned to the cabin, they stayed relatively quiet and we were grateful.

Jumior Suites on Rhapsody are under the pool deck or solarium/park cafe and can have some noise issues. A great ship but be aware of what is located above you. Staff are good and the room decor was in good condition and clean.

The cabin was very spacious and well maintained. It had a full bath with shower over the bath. I have short legs so it was a bit if a climb into the shower each day but I coped. It had some nice ammenities in the bathroom. The cabin also had a jug for tea and a coffee machine which was a nice addition.

Loved the bath in the suites. Closest good size and suitcases can fit under the beds for additional space.
We were on the 8th floor and could here noise from the pool chairs overhead - only complaint.

Very Satisfied lethal123

Our Junior Suite, 8566 was very comfortable and a home away from home. The suite is quite spacious with plenty of storage and a Balcony. The bathroom is a good size with a hand held shower over bath. In a good location.

Cabin as usual was very clean & comfortable, all amenities that come with a JS. We were @ the very AFT end of the ship which did incur a bit of rock n rollin.. & squeaky ceiling & wall panels especially when we were doing high knots. But a balcony to kill for, which we utilised to the fullest.
The odd leave port sail away party, breakfast, snacks & plain old entertaining. You had plenty of sunshine if you req'd it or just pull one of the deck chairs into the shade for a quiet read or a snoozzee. Will try for that one again.

Shallow but plentiful drawers and cabinets
Weird half spherical sink.
Conventional bathtub still high

Great Scenery Illinoisgirl

We all had junior suites so having a balcony was great. Because Rhapsody is a smaller ship, the closet was smaller than Freedom of the Seas and Mariner of the Seas. On those ships, we actually had a walk-in closet.

The location was great with regard to the Windjammer. We were only only deck below and not far from the stairs or elevator.

7 TIME CRUISERS LOVE ALASKA drumming cruisers

Cabin was fantastic, new carpet, new furniture.Some reviews say balcony view is blocked. There is nothing blocking the view. We had breakfast on our balcony at the glacier and it was fantastic.

Accessible room so the bathroom is large. A lot of noise from the Windjammer above and the service elevator across the hall. Location is convenient for the Windjammer, Adventure Ocean, and the theater.

hallway is noisy with noise from the centrum. Noise is audible from the pool deck (runnning on the deck and live bands).

Very noisy as the pool deck is directly above this cabin.After two sleepless nights we had to move to a cabin further back on the same deck. They are well aware of the noise issues on this deck. It is very bad that you are asked to pay a premium for a suite which turns out to be in possibly the worst area of the ship.

Junior Suite 8582 - Very comfortable and quite - great refurbishment and very good bathroom for the size. Great bed and the iPad is great for staying in touch whilst at sea, along with the minibar restocked daily.

Standard junior suite with plenty of storage and a bathtub. Solid barrier on one side (toward the rear) of balcony giving slightly more privacy as the usual dividers do not go all the way to the rail.

Good space. Lots of walking room. The balcony had an actual wall on one side instead of a clear divider, very nice for extra privacy and sound blockage. Not a walk-in closet, but enough to fit all our clothes. The paintings are out-dated and need replacing. The balcony was spacious and perfect for 2 people. Occasional noise from windjammer above, but never too loud. The staff door was directly across the room, but very quiet. In choppy seas, the cabin location makes the seas a little more than choppy. 3 phones in the room. The outlet in the bathroom seemed underpowered and did not work with the hairdryer provided. It would charge phones though. 1 outlet in the room near the vanity, worked great.

Our state room (a junior suite) was 8564. This was a surprisingly large and comfortable room. While others looked for public places to relax and read, we were quite comfortable in our room with beautiful views. The bathroom and balcony were also surprisingly roomy. The room did not reflect a modern style. Though the bleached wood furnishings and ugly painting were not impressive, the room was VERY clean and comfortable. Friends of ours had a suite as well (7564), but it was much smaller. When we first saw the balcony we thought we were going to have coffee on the balcony every morning. But, it was very cold out there. Most of our trip was cloudy and the temp never got about 60. With the wind from the ship it was just too nippy to spend more than a couple of minutes on the balcony.

Cabin 8546 is a junior suit. Nicely maintained and well laid out. Bathroom is a good size and beds were very comfortable. As it is close to the Centrum, there is a little noise from the band playing 4 floors below but this was not too intrusive. Although you hear a bit of noise from furniture being shifted around on the pooldeck upstairs when you are on the balcony, the noise couldn't be heard in the room when the balcony doors were shut. All in all, we were pleased with the cabin. As the cabin is in the centre of the ship, it was less prone to rocking when the sea was up than cabins at the extremities. The robes that were provided, the tea and coffee making facilities, the pillows and other amenities were very good.

Our cabin was very noisy from the atrium entertainment until at least midnight. We were so tired; however, we were able to fall asleep even in the noise. We had a great view. Our cabin was on the 7th floor.

Wheelchair accessible room with a roll-in shower. Bathroom plenty big for the chair to get completely around. Grab rails around the toilet and shower. Shower had a fold up seat installed and we were provided with a portable stool as well. Balcony lip is about 3" but plenty big for the chair once out on it. Glass wall on the balcony allows you to see the water and shore lines easily. Plenty of room on either side of the bed for the chair but we did have to move the coffee table out of the way. Since the room was close to the elevators, cleaning and room service carts were not in the way unless we had to go down the hallways to get to the dining room (using the hallway on the 8th floor to the forward elevators is better than going to the 4th floor and negotiating the hallways).

8588 Junior Suite Corner Aft - very cool! The room was a lot larger than I anticipated. Bed was made up as a double which our cabin steward quickly rectified. A sitting area separated by a curtain if you wish, with a 3 seater lounge, 2 chairs and a coffee table. Tea/coffee making facilities an added bonus! Tea/coffee/hot chocolate sachets provided. Fridge with mini-bar (no not complimentary LOL) Safe was small and did not fit netbook but sufficient to keep money/passports/jewellery locked away. Heaps of storage space...heaps! Hairdryer, although I took my own US 110V one. Flatscreen TV, loads of channels including kids channels. Large bathroom with the shower over a bathtub, with bathrobes and shampoos/conditioners/vanity kit/body lotion. Large wrap around balcony complete with 2 chairs and a table as well as 2 sun loungers! Two European and two US powerpoints at the desk. I could be wrong but I believe the power in both was 110v. No drama with a powerboard being used. Large oceanview cabin 2638. Last cabin almost aft on Deck 2. Did the job for my son and his girlfriend LOL No flatscreen TV!

great location on deck 8, lots of closet and drawer space, bathroom small, 2 single beds (king-sized once pushed together) very comfortable, air conditioning worked very effectively and easy to regulate.even though we paid extra for a junior suite which sleeps four, my daughter had to sleep on the floor as the pull-out bed couch was too old and sagging for both my kids to sleep on!

Liked the Junior Suite, attendant was right there when we needed him. Only noise was when they were working on the floor in the solarium. we had 8068 and 8070.

This cabin is designed for disable access. You can turn a wheelchair with plenty of area. The bathroom has railings and a seat in the shower. There is no bath. There is so many draws and storage areas. We took plenty of clothes and we only filled half the storage space. The balcony is very large. On the floor plan this cabin is about 1/3 bigger than the regular Junior Suite. It was very clean and well maintained. I did have a look at cabin 8042 which is a disable access cabin and the layout is a little different. It seems as though it has a little more space. I hope to be able to download some photos of this cabin. Cabin no. 8050

8080 - Lovely Junior Suite aft. However there were creaks on a rough night. Stateroom possibly too far from elevators for elderly or infirm passengers.

Our Suite was cabin # 8558 about mid ship. Very spacious, not ultra modern but I wasn't expecting that. it was well appointed and very clean and not worn in anyway (I believe the ship had recently been refurbished). The bathroom was a very good size and it was a proper size bath. We had plenty of cupboard and drawer space. The balcony was private and the living space plenty for us. Overall we were very happy with the Junior Suite and feel we got value for our money.

Excessive Vibration in some Junior Suites. Deck 8 towards back of ship. Otherwise, the Junior Suites are very spacy and comfortable with a bathtub in the bathroom.

Cabin 8550: Huge handicapped cabin, with a large balcony.  The balcony has no overhang above it, which is a plus. There is no cabin across the hall, also a plus.
