We only saw our steward twice each time for 2 minutes We never go the ice we requested but hey. The beds were comfortable and we never give the room steward much work to do so ok there.
The ship had cleanliness problems Leaks in several cabins and not enough spares to rehome them. Cockroaches in a few cabins and seen on luggage waiting to be put in cabins. Apart from spraying 4 times our friends had no rehoming (I would not have slept there) They were offered 25% of the next cruise but would not go RCI again they said. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin steward Marilyn was a delight. She rearranged our bed on the first night. Our TA had booked Queen, even though we had asked for twin and meant we could only get into bed by crawling in from the end. We had a very wet spot in the centre of the carpet in he cabin. If walked on by accident the colour came out of the carpet and stained my white socks. The leak was coming up not down... It eventually dried out and they replaced a small square in the carpet. Nothing was an effort and we were always greeted with a smile. Every night there was a different towel animal on the bed. Read entire member review >>
Lill took care of our room and she was spritley, paid attention to detail and went over and above on how well she kept our room, clean, pleasant, and fun to go back to each evening.. Read entire member review >>
Cabin itself was fine- very quiet and with lots of storage space. Shower was in need of re-grouting. Room was configured to a double when we arrived, despite requesting a twin, and the safe wasn't working which required getting maintenance down to re-set it. Spoke with guests who had paid for the 'virtual view' rooms or who were located over the Royal Promenade, and they absolutely HATED their rooms. Keycard stopped working 3 times and we had to go to Guest Services each time for a new set sail pass. Cabin steward was friendly and efficient. Read entire member review >>
Our inside cabin 7334 had plenty of room for us and was very quiet. The library was not far from our cabin and was it was good location since we utilized it. The room steward did an excellent job keeping the room clean, etc. Read entire member review >>
VOS 7523 Interior
Good size clean shower room, plenty of towels, large wardrobe, dressing table with EU and USA sockets, comfortable seating area, large very comfortable bed, not much noise even though on a long corridor of rooms. All in all, no major problems as it was kept clean and comfortable Read entire member review >>
The interior cabin is not as bad as people describe. Yes, you have to climb out of the bed on the end as opposed to the side. As mentioned above, bring extra hangers and hang the majority of the clothing. Put anything extra in the room (books, table) in your closet to open up the room.
The bed is quite comfortable and you can stow your suitcases underneath the bed. The pillows are so-so, but you'll be plenty tired if you stay active in ship activities.
The bathroom is much nicer now that the curtains have been replaced by a door.
We learned on Freedom to bring your own face towels as they use so much chlorine, we broke out. Read entire member review >>
