The cabin was clean but shabby, The walls were chipped, paint that shade of white turning to off white(yellow. On an 11 day cruise my sister had to strip the bed to get the sheets changed. I had a top sheet that had a tear in it from day one and was never replaced. The steward cleaned it very well every day but you can only do so much with shabby furniture and fixturing. And no robes on a cruise that will have 3 days at sea? Oceania provides robes in EVERY cabin. Read entire member review >>
Mid ship ocean view cabin , not largest cabin we've had but had everything we needed.Bathroom better than expected plenty of storage
Kept spotlessly clean by Fransisco . Room was very quiet , easy access to lift and stairs Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice size for two people. Windows were large enough to be able to see while porting and departing each port. Shower is small and only comes with two bars of soap (one for sink and one for shower) There is no shampoo or conditioner provided. They do provide hairdryer. Plenty of drawers and hangers. Beds are on the hard side but comfortable enough. Read entire member review >>
Small, not a lot of storage room, not enough room to store your suitcases and they would not fit under the bed. Moved the chair and table around and stored them there.
Room was loud 24/7 from crew movement to and from their living quarters and the fact that we were below the dining room. Room also shook when the side thrusters were used entering and leaving port Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very quiet. After all, no one uses the deck to get from the front to the back. Even though we were close to the elevators and stairs, we never heard them. No noise from the adjacent rooms, nor the decks above or below. There was some thumping in Tampa due to baggage loading. Read entire member review >>
The ocean view cabin was very comfortable. We tried to upgrade a couple months out and they were sold out. So if you want balcony get request in early.
We love RCCL. We have tried others but prefer Royal Cnaribbean. Once you try them you will see the difference. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a pleasant surprise. I expected it to be too small for 2 women but it actually was quite roomy with lots of storage space. The bathroom was clean and neat. The shower was what was expected. Sure wish they would get rid of the shower curtain and use doors. Read entire member review >>
Comfortable, clean, pleasant, with a great Stateroom Attendent. Since it's near the bow, we noticed the movement of the ship in cross seas a bit, but nothing too severe. Also, it was quite near the elevators at the front, so a very quick and easy trip to the buffet or the theater. Read entire member review >>
When my husband booked the cruise almost 9 months in advance - he asked for the middle of the ship as I tend to get sea sick. We went thru Cruises.com and they did NOT offer us a variety of cabin choices nor had us look at the deck plans to choose a cabin of our choice. We found out several months later that they had put us on the 2nd floor in the WORST room on the ship. We called many, many times months in advance to change they room but they told us that the ship had already been sold out. I honestly feel that was a lie as we called MONTHS in advance not weeks. Our cabin was right above the gang plank. Neither the Royal Caribbean nor Cruises.com informed us of this when they booked us in to this room. We were abruptly awoken every day for 6 days between 5:00am and 6:00am when the ship ported. They dropped chains/ropes against our outer wall which startled us awake, as well as, the gang plank and proceeded to prepare for tourist departure. Being that our room was RIGHT above the area most of the ship left for excursions - it sounded like being in a ship yard. Unbelievable that they would even charge for this room!! We complained. They said 'oh sorry' and did nothing.
The room itself is old with stains on the couch and carpets. Coloring is horrid. Enough space, however, for two people to co-exist with stepping on each other.
The bedding was lumpy/bumpy. The TV was a small 1960s TV. The room steward was average but did not go out of his way clean the room other than the bathroom - which he always kept very clean. Read entire member review >>

Cabin 2582 Outside cabin: Decent size for 2 people, small bathroom,showing age, decent closet,limited drawer space,antique TV, worn furniture, very cold A/C. If you are prone to motion sickness this is a great spot. Not much ship movement.
Cabin 2581 Inside cabin: Decent size for 2 people, small bathroom, really showing age, decent closet, limited drawer space, antique TV, very warm cabin, questionable A/C. Again great area if you are prone to motion sickness. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was supposed be larger than the standard stateroom but I am not sure. Then a standard cabin is surely tight. Only had a problem to store the one suitcase which would not fit under the bed and which caused stubbed toes throughout. We like to hang all our clothes mostly and found the hangers a little short in supply, but as we gave laundry in we got more hangers. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows. Being on the lowest deck and in the middle it was pleasant. Never heard anyone, our neighbours must have been quiet and access to one set of lifts was close. Read entire member review >>
