The cabin was fine (very good bed and pillows and shower). Dirty cabin doors into the balcony. Black mould at bottom of doors.
Biggest disappointment/issue was that sleep was so difficult because of our cabin's location. We could hear clearly every word of every song from the Schooner Bar below us, from 10.00am until after midnight. The microphone on the piano in the Schooner Bar was 44 paces from the Level 6 lifts. Cabin 7620 was 45 paces from the Level 7 lifts!
Sleep was impossible until after midnight. Not good if you have gone for a resti and a chance to catch up on your sleep. As we did! Read entire member review >>
Very clean and plenty of storage space, comfy bed, shower was a bit small for me but I'm a big guy,very quiet and east to get to the windjammer buffet three floors up, can't fault the cabin,also very good attendant. Read entire member review >>
Room attendant was very good. Enough room to move around. However bring there is no clock in the room, There was 2 110v and 2 220v outlets, but they are at the vanity and not near the bed. If you do bring a clock, bring an extension cord. Read entire member review >>
Slightly lager than some with a 3 seat settee. Unrestricted balcony view with a table and two chairs. Refurbished bathroom. A quiet stateroom, but those staterooms only a few further aft were quite noisy due to noise from the engine room. Read entire member review >>
Accomodations was also excellent. We had a Superior Oceanview with Balcony. Storage space was ample, and the layout/space of the room was quite agreeable. Our room attendant, Vincente, seemed chipper all the time. He was very friendly, but worked hard - our room was always in tip top shape, from sparkling clean bathrooms, to folded clothes if we left any around (usually just our sleeping gear), and any cups/plates we might have brought into the room from other venues/room service. He did also do a couple of towel animals, but this did not seem to be a big priority for him (perhaps on a cruise of mostly very cruise-experienced and elderly guests this was not something most people appreciated?). But I had fun with him - played harmless jokes on him - turning off lights occasionally as I walked by a room he was servicing, or unplugged the vacuum on him. He always laughed and I think he enjoyed the diversion. On the last night, as he was standing in the hallway with another room attendant during their nightly "turn down" service, and this after he had down our room, I walked toward him and complained that he had not left us a "Cruise Compass" (a list of events and activities for the next day). It took a moment for it to sink in (his co-worker caught on right away) - it was disembarkation the next day, and so there was no Cruise Compass to leave. He laughed heartily.

- We got an aft balcony room – I HIGHLY recommend going this route if you are going to do a balcony. - The balcony was HUGE – plenty of room for two lay-down beach chairs, plus two sit-down chairs plus small table, plus room to move them back and forward- We saw someone else’s balcony – it was TINY compared to this- Room itself was pretty nice and roomy for a ship cabin- Bathroom was okay – much better than that on the Enchantment. o Had a couple problems with sink draining but not the end of the worldo Also not a fan of having to ask for items like shampoo and such – they should at least put something out there notifying you to ask if you want it Read entire member review >>
We were about 4 cabins from the elevators and centrum so it was a bit noisy up until 11 PM or so, from the music playing on deck 4. After that, it was fine and since we do not go to bed too early, it was fine. The cabin was rather narrow but long. Enough space for 2 with lots of storage space, more than we needed. Bathroom was normal size but there was a shower curtain instead of a door and it was rather annoying taking a shower as the curtain stuck to you no matter where you stood. Also, the toilet paper holder was a stretch, especially for a short person like me. The upgrades were very nice, sort of like the Oasis and Freedom combined. Everything was clean and neat and our cabin steward was wonderful. They do have to think about putting memory foam on the beds - they were not very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Our room was 7074 balcony category D1. We liked the location. It was just off the main atrium, but we were never bothered by any noise or music outside the room. We had the two twin beds made into a large bed for us and the couch was made into a twin sized bed for the teen. Our cabin steward did a great job and always greeted us a smile.

The superior stateroom was clean, but obviously weathered. This wasn't the rooms first rodeo. A knob here, scratched up door there, mis-fitting drawer, can't believe it was renovated just a year ago. The cleaning staff kept it spotless, great job - they made the difference. Perhaps the main, public areas of the ship may have been renovated, but this room sure looked original.

Fantastic. This cabin has a balcony that wraps around the corner of the ship. It was easily 10 feet deep and maybe 20-25 feet long, with room for lots of people. At one point, we had 15 people over for drinks and could easily have fit 15 more. If you can get this cabin, do it. As for the cabin itself, pretty much what you expect at this level. It isn't a suite, it just has a balcony similar to a suite. Read entire member review >>
Room: We stayed in 7522, deck 7, forward starboard side. 7522 is a balcony cabin and at 195 sq feet inside it was just big enough for me and my 6.5' husband. The bathroom is adequate, the shower minuscule, and the lack of toiletries disappointing, but not a deal breaker. The beds were pushed together to make a "king" size, but nay nay. My husband ended up sleeping on the couch which he said we actually very comfortable. our stateroom attendant was fabulous. Upon learning it was both our first cruise and our anniversary she went our of her way to make it special! On the actual night of our anniversary we found a lovely display of lovebird towel animals, mini snickers, champagne, and a handwritten note from her upon our bed! Very sweet, very caring. No matter haw many times a day we napped or messed things up in the room it was kept neat and tidy. The balcony was adequate in size with 2 chairs and a small table. It was perfect for having a read and a drink to start out your morning or sipping champagne in the moonlight. Room was very quiet, no loud noises or banging. It is a connecting room so we occasionally heard the family next door but nothing bad. You WILL feel the movement of the ship here though so bring some meclizine! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was amply sized with more than adequate storage for a 10 day cruise. As mentioned before we were in an aft D1 connecting room with an oversized balcony (#7656). The room was about 190 square feet and was laid out quite well with a few exceptions. The bathroom door opened in an awkward manner blocking the entry/closet area and making dressing with the bath door open impossible. The bathroom itself was typical RCCL compact but had enough storage for all of Andrews gels, creams, unguents, pomades, lotions, potions, etc along with my measly assortment of toiletries. The shower, while not overly generous, proved to be adequate and over the course of the next 10 days the shower curtain and I would become more friendly than I'd ever hoped! The entry/ closet area in balcony rooms on the Vision feature wood floors, which is a nice touch and helps set them apart from standard interior and oceanview rooms. The beds a all located close to the bath and have their heads against the side wall. They were comfortable and when combined seemed to produce something more akin to a King bed than a Queen. The connecting door was opposite the bed and was well insulated. We never heard noise from the adjoining cabin. On the same wall as the bed was a nicely sized sofa which I could lay full down on with room to spare (I'm 6'1" tall), a small glass and brass cocktail table and across from the sofa a generous desk with additional drawers and storage along with a small flat panel tv.
The balcony itself was immense, at least fully 3/4 of the size of the room itself. Furnishings included two adjustable sun loungers, 2 dining chairs and a small dining table. All were relatively new and were of the blue mesh, faux teak wood and powder coated aluminum that is becoming standard as RCCL refurbishes all their ships. About 1/2 of the balcony is covered with an overhang which allows plenty of sun when desired, but still some opportunity for shade if preferred. This also allows protection from rain showers when dining alfresco, relaxing over a glass of wine, or often in Andrews case having a cigarette. The cabins on each side also had smokers and this non smoker never found the smell offensive or lingering. A soft breeze always seemed to draw the smoke away as if by magic. This particular balcony has one of the larger overhangs from above, some of the most floor space and is one of the few to not have a steel support beam running vertically from floor to ceiling in the middle of the rail. In short it is probably one of the best aft balcony options on this ship. We spent quite a lot of time out here and as is always the case with aft balconies, became quite social with our neighbors, usually sharing a recap of our days adventures at sailaway or sunset.
