Large room,lots of storage space,very uncomfortable king size bed,ugly old fashioned furniture,big balcony with two hard chairs one had to sit on and not be able to adjust to lie on, filthy water in the guttering. The nicest part about the accommodation was the white large for a ship bathroom,it had a tub and a shower fitting,but the wash basin was too small and too high to wash in easily.The toiletries did not seem to be of good quality.I had to ask for tissues and was told one box only would be provided and the second one had to be requested,as people "used too much paper"!The TV set was old fashioned,no music channels.The internet connection was very poor,it should not be sold if one cannot be connected.

The cabin was reasonably spacious with ample storage space. However, there was dirt/mould on the PVC of the balcony doors and the balcony floor was stained. The bed and pillows were comfortable.
We had a significant problem at night with noise from The Schooner Bar as the cabin was almost directly above the piano/microphone and we could hear every note played and word sung until midnight, or just after on some occasions. This prevented us from sleeping and getting the rest that we needed. RCI did not take the complaint seriously enough and tried to suggest it had never been a problem. We were unable to move cabin as the ship was full. Eventually after much persistence by my husband, the noise was turned down for the last 2 nights. If you are planning on trying to sleep before midnight, avoid this cabin. Read entire member review >>
Balcony is enclosed and rusty. Cabin is small but well laid out. Furniture all beat up from 20 years of use. Telephone covered in 20 years of grime. Nice new bathroom but who still uses an icky shower curtain? Beds are hard as a rock. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine. the attendant was great.
We always take our own prefered shower liquids and shampoos ,but most folks we talked to were amazed that only two small pieces of soap were provided. more penny pinching by royal caribbean !!!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great, well laid out with plenty of room for the two of us. It was spotlessly clean and fresh with lots of haning space and hangers, shelves and drawers.
The en-suite, too was well proportioned and spotless.
Our steward, Alwyn Jacobs, was a real joy to be around. He took time to acustom my partially sighted husband to the room and ensured large print Cruise Compass and menus were left for him. Each night we would rush back from dinner to see what towel animal had been left, our family and friends would wait for the pictures to be posted on facebook too. Read entire member review >>

This cabin is smaller than most other RCI cabins in this category, mainly due to the age of the ship. It is conveniently located near the forward stairs and elevators. Pretty quiet too. It was visibly clean but old and tired looking. Under the bed was filthy and dusty... we found 3 jawbreakers, 2 pencils, and 2 candy wrappers under the bed so they obviously had not cleaned under there in awhile. Read entire member review >>
Very spacious cabin. From the door, the bathroom is to the right, and closet to the left. Bed is in the centre of the room, with a 3-seat sofa near the balcony door. All cabinet/closet doors/drawers worked well. Balcony is good size with round table and two chairs. AC worked very well. Mini bar fridge is cool, not cold. Read entire member review >>
Cabin at front "right" of ship. Normally choose mid to back but on this cruise we liked this cabin position. Absolutely no problem with ship motion, just a nice gentle rocking sensation. We both have good sea legs so don't know if this would be a problem for others.
Cabin seemed just a little smaller than on bigger ships but storage was very good, even better than some others which surprised me.
The balcony was smaller and the outside does look rather tired in places. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adequate and clean, view was amazing as this was the back of the ship. There was some noise from a club late into the night though. We felt the furniture on the balcony was worn and should have been replaced.
The showers have curtains which I don't like. Read entire member review >>
cabin size was very tight for 4 adults with the two beds pushed together to make a queen it was no way a king and then the sofa pulled out to make a queen bed as well. Once the sofa was open there was very little room to move around the cabin and getting on to the balcony was impossible with out crawling over the bed. The bathroom was fair sized but the shower was way to small for one of the guests in our group as he was 6' 3" and had to duck under the shower head to fit in. Read entire member review >>
This balcony cabin was very nice, with plenty of closet room, and an actual sofa big enough for me (at 6'3" tall) to actually lay down for a nap. The balcony was a nice size, with two chairs and a table for our drinks. Our cabin steward was very nice, and kept the cabin neat and tidy the entire cruise. Our only complaint came on Wednesday, when we woke to no air conditioning, which made cleaning up in preparation for Roatan a humid experience. There was a system problem on our floor, which was repaired by the time we returned from Roatan in the afternoon. Read entire member review >>
Cabin - Our cabin was on Deck 7, it felt like I was walking into a stateroom that was brand new. It was designed so well that we switch cabins each night with our friends(7138) to have wine and cheese in it before dinner. Once again I have to agree with karena1, the shower was small with a (oh no) shower curtain. It makes you appreciate the Plexiglas doors on the Freedom Class ships. They should consider shower amenities for at least Platinum and higher Crown and Anchor members. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was wonderful. We were upgraded - I would not have paid full price for it though - I usually take an interior cabin but for this cruise we splurged and paid for a Jr Suite with a balcony. Our upgrade to a major suite gave us two bedrooms- one we named the cave - it was small and dark (good for sleeping) - just big enough for two twin beds and the other (master) was large - and very light. The master had a convenient door to the balcony. This room came with a large living room, a mini fridge and most importantly 2 bathrooms! Read entire member review >>
A good location and plenty of room....could have had a love seat instead of a full size couch, balcony is not very private. I would also like to see some form of a deodorizer in the hallway... Read entire member review >>
Great room with huge, wraparound balcony on stern/port side, with plenty of room on the veranda for two tables, two chairs, and two chaise lounges. We were the envy of all our fellow English speaking passengers nearby, along the stern. It was our own little Shangri-La Retreat! Could have done a bunch of deep sea fishing all the way across the South Atlantic! Read entire member review >>
