Perfect location for the stairs to the Allegro restaurant and Horizon Court buffet.

Cabin D501
The cabin was a typical cruise cabin, spacious enough. The balcony was nice. Services in the cabin were excellent. We had a very good cabin steward. One thing to note is that the shower was bigger than many cruise cabin showers, and allowed more room that usual to move around.

Cabin E719
Spacious, small balcony, very comfortable. Like the full closet, much easier to unpack/pack.

Cabin D631
Very small. The duvet is too heavy and short when tucked in. We pulled it out at night in order to have it long enough. We asked for a top sheet the first day which was provided that night.

Cabin D622
The cabin is on the small side, but I didn't find the balcony to be terribly tiny like some other reviews. The bathroom, while not large, is larger than on the Caribbean Princess, and certainly has a larger shower. It was clean, comfortable, and had loads of storage.

Cabin R702
After reading the complaints about the small balconies, I was pleased with the space we had. You can't entertain out there but it was adequate for our needs

Cabin A728
Did not like the aft location. Because of the lack of stairs and elevator access, you have to walk to the mid ship area to go down to the atrium. I would recommend booking mid ship or forward on the Royal.

Cabin C535
Not sure if that is the right category! Modern but midships as per review means either a long wait for the lifts or a long walk to a staircase. Headboard is towards the front of the ship, but no longer an issue for us as the TV is on the wall at the foot of the bed. No UK power socket and no socket on one side of the bed. Balcony is small, but a glass screen makes viewing OK. Two decks above the lifeboats, so an unobstructed view. The only external noise was from adjacent passengers where they had three cabins together and linked the balconies.

Cabin R707
Very will laid out. No criticism at all - we got what we paid for. Balcony is for 2 people - not enough room for a party here.

Magnificent Miss Butterfly
Well kept room by our steward. She was very cordial and pleasant. We had a minor problem with the shower and she had it repaired well before we even mentioned it. The balconies are a bit small but we don't spend much time in our room.

Cabin D204
Lovely room. VERY small balcony. Nice having a love sofa instead of just a chair. Nice large flat screen tv. Very comfy bedding. Love the improvements to the bathroom--roomy shower, ledge for toiletries & leg shaving :) Less shelf & drawer space than before. Funky system for turning on lights in room (must use room card). Chose this room because it was one of the few that does not lose its privacy to either the "peeping tom" skywalk or the captain's bridge...and does not look down on lifeboats.

Cabin A630

The cabin was tastefully decorated, immaculate, and while a bit tight, certainly up to our expectations. We don't spend a great deal of time in our cabin when we cruise, but do enjoy having a balcony to have the occasional breakfast on or just watch the world go by from. If I had a complaint, it would be that the table on the balcony could be larger to make meals easier.
The location of the cabin was good..we might have preferred one closer to one of the staircases, but this was a quite spot, no excess hallway noise, and none from above or below.

Cabin A718

Problems in the Cabin
I had been on the Royal last year for 30 days and experienced some issues so I was ready to embrace a new and improved ship. This was not quite the experience I had. The toilet in my room (A718) was clogged first thing the morning, and you know how that goes when you are traveling. This caused extreme discomfort to us and I spent the morning calling for help. Just like last year, nobody came to fix the toilet until I called 5 times, not my favorite way to start a cruise. We had to vacate the room and race to use the public bathrooms, then to the front desk to ask for help in person, this being the most effective method of eliciting help on this ship. Good grief, I swear I am not doing anything different on this ship than I do on others so I don't understand what the problem is. Could it be related to the power blackout we had yesterday right after we boarded?

Cabin A718

The Cabin was fine, the toilet did not work on the first full day of the cruise, this was eventually repaired by the afternoon and I never had any other problems with this cabin. The bed was a bit hard, had to ask for extra toppers (they don't have egg crate style toppers on this ship) and once I got them it was more comfortable. The room was a little worn, there were a few stains on the floors, and the TV intermittently didn't work so well, sometimes it would go dark in the middle of a movie making that experience very frustrating. Finally, the vent top on the side of the cabinet while holds the refrigerator was always falling off and finally I just leaned it against the hole, and because of this I could not use that storage area.

Cabin D148

D148; great room no complaints except if you have friends in D147 (that was we could view everything on both sides of the ship) it's a lot of walking because of no cross overs. Also no going out the front of ship on our floor. Laundry was in the 600 section so once again a long walk.

A Beautiful Ship Cruise XYZ

Small balcony, had sofa bed which made room seem smaller and then it offered less storage space.

Cabin D709

Small Cabin. Tiny Balcony. Ridiculously small beds. Paper thin walls.

Good points - good bathroom / shower. Plenty of luggage space
