Spacious enough for the two of us, but it upon closer inspection, it was pretty worn and dirty. Multiple holes in the wall had been covered by patches matching the wallpaper. Several large dings/smashes in the tops of tables and the vanity. Bathroom had a black mold problem. Our balcony looked absolutely disgusting. I am not a fan of the fully enclosed, concrete balconies as these make you feel like you're a stowaway on a container ship. Ours was totally rusted out, and while I appreciate the full sized chairs and table out there, there wasn't a whole lot of room to get around them and we were constantly having to push our way through to get in and out. This ended up being quite scary on a night the seas where the seas were rough. Also, the morning we arrived in Lautoka, our toilet stopped working and was not fixed for 2 days (see full review for story.) The bed was probably the worst part of the cabin, though. Extremely hard - like sleeping on a cot. Pillows were to thin and flimsy to offer any sort of support. Very uncomfortable time. Read entire member review >>
*As mentioned above*
I was in stateroom 1688 on deck 10 port side rear corner, the first and last time I will ever sail at the rear of a ship. The room was large for that particular category due to the corner location, with a larger than normal balcony which I soon discovered was not so private. The windjammer buffet was located directly above with diners sat near the windows able to view 50% of the 'private' balcony. Then there was the noise from the Flow rider two decks above with music blaring out most of the day, which put an end to enjoying the serenity of the ocean. Then of course there was the smell... It smelled like a garbage dump out there and when I asked the stateroom attendant what it was, he said it was most likely odor coming from where they store or incinerate the refuse/garbage. The balcony was also littered with what appeared to be black soot every morning, which was never swept once by the stateroom attendant, other items that appeared occasionally were table tennis balls from the sport deck above, a rubber sandal, an apple core, a discarded slice of cake and chicken bones!

I had cabin 8392 which is an aft balcony. It felt spacious for its size, with the beds by the balcony and a 2 seater couch. The beds were very comfortable, not too soft or hard. The balcony was great! The larger size and the two loungers were most welcome, plus the superstructure actually allowed for some nice photos. It's location at the far back of the ship was good as it meant I had to walk to the lifts, and it was nice and quiet. Read entire member review >>
Stayed at the aft of the ship. Was a bit worried at first as there were some reviews about aft rooms being a hit or miss kinda of thing. I would say aft is perfectly fine and the balcony is much bigger! although there is the ship's aft frame in in front but i dont see it was any concern cause i could still view the sea, beautiful sunset from the great big balcony. dont need to look down at the sea really cause, seriously the whole 7 days, you will be looking the sea haha. the space in front of aft rooms on 6th level is really not that big and far out too. there is a slightly more vibration at the aft but for me it didnt disturb my sleep. after a day, you dont even notice it. and for the record, no you cant see the staff quarters or anything on 6 aft. not at all.

Very comfortable cabin. Big enough to get around easily and not get in each other's road which is important. Replacing of shower curtain with closing doors a winner. Bar fridge isn't that cold but an ice bucket does the trick better anyway. Balcony had adequate room. Not a bad cabin at all but in the end you only sleep in it! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was forward, no difference in feeling the movement of the ship at all in this location! Excellent cabin steward.
Take your own shampoo and shower gel
I asked for extra padding on my mattress and the cabin steward brought an egg crate mattress which made all the difference to my comfort. I also asked for better pillows and he brought two moulded pillows which again made all the difference. Read entire member review >>
Obviously we're not the first to use the cabin but I'd say its been maintained relatively well. There were stain on the shower floor but it wasn't too bad. However there was also a lot of black deposits around the toilet bowl which did not get cleaned until the very last day.
All in all its an acceptable cabin. Read entire member review >>
great cabin - just under the gym - so if you use the gym frequently it is just a floor above - very quiet - I have noticed someone stating that it was noising due to its location to the gym - I don't know how they sleep but we heard absolutely nothing. we were extremely pleased with the location of the cabin.- would book it again.

We liked this spot. Foward of the ship, so more movement than in the middle, so avoid if you get seasick. It was under the gym, however we only heard some banging when there was a noisy class on and there were only a couple scheduled each day, one at 9am and one at 5pm, so not too bad. Convenient for us as it was one deck under and right near the stairs to the gym, which we used regularly (had to work off all that food somehow :) ) and the adults only pool area. Don't book here if you have trouble or don't like walking as the dining areas are all at the other end of the ship. Read entire member review >>
I was very satisfied with this cabin. It was spacious and quite well maintained. Our cabin attendant was one of the best encountered on 10+ cruises.
The bathroom although compact was very good. Curved shower doors ensured that the usual flooding of the bathroom floor didn't happen.
Be warned if you are after gentle hair shampoo bring your own as the provided pump variety was a little harsh for me. Read entire member review >>
Great size for two. Forward Port Side. Spotless. Away from stairs or entry exit areas. Not too many pax passing. Lots of cupboards and room under bed for suitcases. Balcony small but OK for two to sit and enjoy the outside. Bathroom good size. Read entire member review >>
Cabin Steward AT 8582 was awesome and the 2nd cabin we go was lovely. WE HAD TO GET CABIN CHANGED AS 8306 CABIN ONLY HAD 1 CHAIR SO FINALLY GOT NEW CABIN AFTER 2 DAYS OF GOING TO FRONT CUSTOMER SERVICES DESK. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin and this was a saving grace! It was nice to sit outside and read. This let me escape from the crowds on board and the boredom of having no entertainment! Our cabin boy Frederick was great! He kept the room tidy and my 11 year old entertained! Thanks Freddy! Read entire member review >>
Fresh and clean cabin. Beds extremely comfortable. Excellent room attendant. Nice, small balcony. Private and wind protected. Had two comfortable chairs and small table on the balcony.Wardrobe is very small. Read entire member review >>

Excellent location, quiet but central to main lifts.
Good view, but we felt smelt smoke from other passengers balconies pooled on right side of balcony due to enclosed style of balcony. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6578 was a balcony suite, it had plenty of space, very clean and tidy. great proximity to the Promenade. Very quite room. Being in the middle of the ship very little movement. Read entire member review >>
Great location for peace and relaxation. Extra large covered deck with limited viewing. I have been in the cabin location many times and book early to get cabin with this location. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7254 and 7256 (Adjoining). Great location with easy access to all areas of the ship. my only suggestion is that if you have 4 in your cabin that you stick with the Superior Ocean View stateroom or Junior Suite. It's worth the $$$ for the extra space. Read entire member review >>
Great location on the ship. Balcony was quiet but we were bothered by someone smoking near our balcony. Cabin was normal size for a balcony room. Bed was extremely hard but we heard that from others on the cruise too. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone because of it's location on the ship. It was a very quiet room yet near the elevators and one of the few with a wide hallway outside with a very nice little corner just outside the cabin for extra space that worked especially well when placing one's suitcases outside the night before departure. This room was designed for up to 3 people which also makes it a plus. Everything worked fine in the room and the cabin staff was excellent. Definitely recommend this cabin.

No complaints about the cabin. It was the size we expected and I love the balcony cabins. We like to have the door open and this did not disappoint despite the high winds throughout the cruise. My only complaint about the cabin is the lack of outlets. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony cabin (8558) The room was clean and the space more than adequate. It was quiet and you really didn't hear anything from the hallway or the adjacent rooms. The balcony was small, but enough for 2, if you had more than it would be too small.
The shower was surprisingly good.
The TV should be replaced - it was old and the image was very blurry. We didn't watch it much except to look at the ships position. The screen was too blurry to see the SeaPass account numbers.
I would stay in this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a basic deck seven balcony. It's an old ship so what do you expect and well worth the money . Was very very clean and cabin personal looked after you. No complaints. Take your own toiletries and shower hat. Bottled water not complimentary. Read entire member review >>
We were extremely happy with our location, our cabin, cabin layout, and balcony.
Loved the walk-in closet (where I could dress sometimes). My only complaint is the lighting in the bathroom. It wasn't bright enough over the sink for makeup application and the lighting threw many shadows on my face. Read entire member review >>
It's a cruise ship--cabins are going to be small-ish. But spend the extra for a good balcony room--it really is worth the extra space (we used it to store snorkel gear and swim suits) and "ahhhhhh" factor! Great showers! We picked a forward room away from traffic and glad we did! Read entire member review >>
E1 Aft 8692 is very small but one of the best kept secrets on the Voyager class. Great value for the money and one of the biggest balconies on the ship. We were able to accomodate our new hammock and 3 loungers, 2 chairs and the small table and at one point had a guitar party with our gang of 10 people on it! Wonderful view everywhere you go. Needs way more storage though. We saw many ways they could improve on this by adding shelving and niches etc. We visited friends in 1688 D1 Aft as well, again a great value, as the cabin itself is the size of a Junior Suite with a large balcony also.

Our cabin (7250) was on the Voyager of the Seas. Near the forward elevators. Straight shot down to the Promenade Cafe, Cleopatra's Lounge, theater balcony, Schooners, casino, and Aquarium Bar. Looks really close to the elevators but is around the corner from them and we had no disturbance because of the elevators or the people getting on/off of them. Previously we had been on Deck 6 and the balcony front railing was solid steel. These balconies had glass above about three feet of steel which put more light in the cabin. This balcony had solid walls on both sides rather than a solid wall and a partition which we have had in the past. In our opinion, more privacy. Read entire member review >>
We had two E1's side by side. 8292 had a metal wall on one side and a glass wall with the cabin next door on the other. 8290 had metal walls on both sides so was very very private. But the A/C in 8290 didn't seem to work as well as in 8292. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adquate for the amount of time you spend there, tv needs updating and it would help if it worked and had at least one watchable English Channel. I the cabin has 3 people in it why are there not 3 chairs!!!!!! Read entire member review >>
