Slum dog of the Seas By: dananny
Smallest balcony cabin I have ever been in. I have seen many inside cabins that are larger. The beds are like sleeping on a rock as they have metal bases. The water in the bathroom ran yellow every few days.....

Cabin 7094
Jun 2016
Cabin 7094 is closest to the mid-ship elevator. Convenient location, but lots of foot traffic and noise from band in the Centrum. They do close a fire door at 10:00 which helps with the noise from the band, but you then hear people opening and closing the fire door. This room does have an oversized balcony which gives you the ability to look down the side of the ship towards the bridge, which was nice but not a significant advantage over other balcony rooms that our friends had on the same deck.

Cabin 9520

Very good, but not Wow By: lenorkrahn
Our cabin, 9520 was good. But the sliding door to the balcony was very hard to move and the outside handle had rusted away so there was nothing except the indent in the door to hold when you tried to open it from the outside. I got stuck on the balcony. So we called for maintenance. They said they couldn't do anything while at sea and in Aruba they would address it. After we returned to our cabin for departure from Aruba, we didn't notice any difference in the door operation. So we called again. This time we requested that they either leave a note or call us back after they worked on the door so we knew they had tried to do something. They actually managed to fix the door, attaching a new handle and doing whatever was needed to make it slide with ease. But there were other issues with the cabin. The doors of the closet didn't align correctly so the door had problems staying closed. The refrigerator could possibly "cool" something to 5F less than room temperature and was more a storage location than a refrigerator. And when I dropped my reading glasses and stuck my head under the bed I was surprised to find dust bunnies, an ear plug, a plastic bag, and... a used Kleenex. Oh... ick.

Don't listen By: AlDolle
Everything clean, comfortable, and in working order. We loved having the balcony, can't imagine doing it without one. The room and balcony were both notably larger than what I had on Carnaval.

A Relaxing Vacation By: AlanAllyn
The E3 cabin was a little small, but we were able to fit 3 weeks of clothing onto the shelves and into the closet and drawers. We had electric cords all over the place, one for my CPAP machine (cord provided by RCI) and another for my dw's cell phone (to stay connected with her elderly mother).

Cabin 7568
Oct 2015
My complaint with the cabin was that I asked if there was any obstructed view from our cabins and I was told no. I had never even thought to ask this but after booking the cabin and then reading reviews about Deck 7 I felt like there might be a problem. You technically did not see the lifeboats but there was a type of white cover that obstructed our view (of the lifeboats) and the ocean if we wanted to look straight down from our balcony. We could see the ocean but you had to always look past the cover. My fault in not booking a higher cabin. I usually stay on decks 9 or 10. But I also feel the RCI representative should have mentioned this white cover. Also probably my fault again with booking Deck 7. This was probably the smallest cabin I have ever been in. I felt bad for my friends - at least I had the whole cabin to myself. Room attendant was great and the cabin itself was nice and clean. The shower structure looked a little worn but otherwise the decor was very nice.

Cabin 1574
Apr 2015
We had a balcony cabin on deck 10 #1574, the couch folded out into a bed for the kids to sleep on at night. It was a bit cramped at night once the bed was put out, but we were able to manage. Having the balcony was great and added a nice bit of extra living space. We had no problem storing our clothes and belongings in the room, plenty of closet and drawer space.

Cabin 7520
Feb 2015
The room was smaller than on other Royal Caribbean ships, but was very comfortable. The balcony was HUGE, but you don't have a ton of privacy because only about half of the balcony had a divider between the rooms next door. We were very happy with the room overall.

Lots of storage, very clean room, very comfy bed. Only one balcony neighbour so its a very quiet and secluded balcony. Good location not too far from elevator and does not have a lot of people passing by the door. Would definitely book this cabin again.

Best Cruise ever By: respotrichie
Our cabin on deck 10 had a great view, but looking down from the balcony you were looking directly into the balconies on deck 7, not very private. The balcony was small and semi private the walls between the cabins did not go all the way from the wall to the railing. The cabin had a somewhat small bathroom with a circular shower, have to open the shower door to pick up the soap. The bed was comfortable (I actually slept quite well, a first) for a cruise. The cabin did have adequate storage space for luggage and personal items and clothing. Being on deck 10 you felt the motion of the ocean more than at lower decks but that just rocks you to sleep. This was not the best cabin but not the worst either. Just as expected.

our cabin was on deck 7, starboard. Life boats were under our balcony, obstructing the ability to look straight down. Close to the elevators...great location.

Cabin 7596
Jul 2011
7596 balcony is really small on one side, is in triangular shape. Is on the starboard forward side of the hump above the boats. Great view forward and to the bridge but so everybody see you as well when standing next to the wooden rails. The toilet had to be flushed twice sometimes because water pressure was not enough to get it to empty and just talking about water alone, no solids. We brought extension cords and shoe plastic holders to place small objects hanging from the bathroom door, we got the tips here from other cruisers and worked well. We brought our ipad for pictures but got full on day 4 so had to stored them on the HD card. Next time bring laptop instead!!!

A fine cruise state room - nothing exceptional or unexceptional. See comments above about being on deck 7, above the life boats - a canopy extends out 5 or 6 feet from the bottom of your balcony, obstructing views of the ocean, socks, etc for several yards away from the side of the ship.

Cabin 7628
Sep 2010
staterooms 7620 & 7628 - okay, smallish compared to standard hotel rooms, shower is tiny!!! Ladies, don't even think about trying to shave legs in there we only used our shower once instead used the showers in the spa instead - totally empty most of the time, they provide their own unlimted towels too. No flat screen as shown on website - standard old fashioned TV, that was on its way out, so assume they will be replacing them soon... Decent location not too far from centrum but far enough away for it to be quiet, did not hear much noise at all, even from neighbours next door. Balconies were decent, can probably fit two/four people seated.

LONG walk from the elevator, but very quiet at that end of the hallway. Nice breakwind on the right side of the balcony, since it's at the end.

Cabin had obstruction to left of mirror over desk. No storage on that side and drawers to left of desk were only half size due to the ship structure that seemed to be built there. Great view. Never heard any noise from the hallway once the door was closed.

Royal Alaska in May By: zonacruiser25
The cabin was smaller than other ships we have been on but nice. There is no way you get more than 2 in a balcony cabin unless you want to go outside the cabin to change your mind! We were in cabin 7154 and loved the extended balcony.
