Inside stateroom with a bay window overlooking the promenade. Convenient location. Can watch the parades but not ideal views from stateroom and also can't hear the music. Have to keep the curtains drawn most time as with the lights on people can see you so basically it was an inside cabin but cost more. It is a joining stateroom with a connecting door to the next stateroom making the layout a bit awkward. The desk with the mini frig on one side, a shallow drawer for hair dryer in the middle and 2 open shelves on the other side. Very narrow shelves behind glass doors on both sides of mirror above desk. If you need drawers to put things into, you have to walk past the bed to the set of drawers under the TV or the bedside tables. Reasonable storage space inside wardrobe and bathroom. Shower is small with glass doors and not shower curtains. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was spacious and clean. Wardrobe a little tight considering the size of the cabin.
Towels changed 3 times daily, not necessary as they have "save the waves" cards, but still they were changed. Read entire member review >>
Interior cabin with a bay window overlooking the promenade. Small but plenty of space for our stuff. In line with other interior cabins we have had.
Overlooking the promenade, it does have constant and loud noise from outside starting about 4PM to about 10-11PM. If you need quiet all the time, this room isn't for you. If you don't mind a little noise, it is a great option to a interior cabin. Also was neat to watch some of the parades and shows from our cabin and not deal with the crammed craziness below.

The cabin larger than I expected. We were rarely in the cabin other than to shower or sleep so it was more than enough. Plenty of cupboard space and your room attendant can get more coat hangers if you need them.
Our room attendant Mani was fantastic. Our room was always cleaned and nothing was to much trouble. Read entire member review >>
We loved our cabin, it was comfortable and the bed was great. Plenty of cupboard space and drawers and you can put your bags under the bed. Bathroom was fine, squeezy but fine. Ours overlooked the Promenade and some people complained about noise but we did not hear a thing. We have never slept so well. Read entire member review >>
We had a "Promenade view" cabin which was directly over the reception office and only two cabins from the lifts
I thought that we may be disturbed by noise from the Promenade deck but this was not so except for some load music on Halloween night, only for around half an hour.
The cabin was larger than most inside cabins and had two small couched and rounded end to the bed, making it easier to get past.
However, we noticed a wet patch on the floor and after about a week of trying to get rid of it, they offered to move us to another cabin or give us a discount on our next cruise. This was eventually sorted out and we are happy to have a reduced fare next November. Read entire member review >>
We had an inside cabin overlooking the promenade (8593). It was smallish but was very nice with light modern décor and a bay window with two sofas that easily sat two people, excellent lighting especially the individual reading lights over the bed but storage space was a bit challenging however the suitcases easily fit under the bed. There was a desk, chair, a fridge and a kettle both of these were a surprise – they provided 2 mugs, teaspoons, sugar, milk & tea bags but no instant coffee. The bathroom was newish, very clean, had good lighting and was a bit smallish but OK, however the shower was very small – barley room to turn around to shave your legs! Amenities provided were tissues, liquid shampoo dispenser inside the shower and a bar of soap replenished as needed.
Location of the cabin was great, mid-ship and three decks up to the Windjammer and three decks down. A little noise drifted in from the parades they’d have around 10.30pm but this wasn’t a real problem, it might be if you are a very light sleeper. By the way, the captain told us if you suffer from motion sickness the best place to be on the Voyager of the Seas is mid-ship on deck 2. But the modern stabilisers on the ship mean you hardly feel any movement at all. Read entire member review >>
We had a promenade room, it was nice to have a window but close to pointless. As it has been mentioned before you look directly into the room across the promenade and as we were mainly in the room to change or for sleeping I didn't want to be undressed in front of other passengers.
Other than that I have no complaints the room was more than adequate size wise and the bathroom was good too. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was really compact but still plenty of room for two people due to the great design. We had a big bed, two couches and ample cupboard space. The bathroom was compact but very good with a great powerful shower and good storage room. There was a bit of noise that came up through the glass from the Promenade deck but it only lasted an hour or so and did not effect us at all. Overall a good budget room. Read entire member review >>
Very good layout. A two seater couch plus a long window seat overlooking the Promenade. En-suite small but well designed. I loved the shower with its curved shower screen - no water on the floor, no clinging shower curtain. Great! Read entire member review >>
We had little to no complaints about our room. The promenade view did not really add much value, but we were in the back of the ship. Someone in the middle may have had a better experience with their view. We had two adjoining rooms, one for the kids and one for my wife and I. Between the two rooms, there was more than enough space for the whole family. Read entire member review >>
We loved our Promenade Stateroom and I loved the revamped curtains and carpet. It is roomy enough for us with plenty of room for our clothes and belongings. It is also very quiet and I love peeking out the window into the Promenade to see what is happening. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great and the attendant couldn't do enough. The cabin was very roomy and over looked the promenade and it was very quiet, I would recommend this cabin highly, I met a couple who were in the room above the Pig and Whistle and they said it was very noisy from the music and singing and wouldn't use it again Read entire member review >>
This was the first time we have experienced a promenade cabin, we were pleasantly surprised, seemed to be more roomy than the balcony cabins we have had. It was very quiet, just had to remember to close curtains when getting changed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7283 - overlooking promenade midships.
perfect central location to get to either end of ship. very quiet as one side is adjacent to a storage cupboard. Most families on lower decks so passage is very quiet. noise outside window to promenade is hardly noticeable but usually stops after 12.00 midnight.Plenty of storage and drawers, with great seating around the window area. Fridge was a bit dicky but not needed by us. good coffee making facilities but bring own instant coffee and get fresh milk and sugar from cafe each day. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a connecting cabin but we never heard any noise from next door. The window faced Guest Services and with the exception of two parades, we never heard any noise from the Promenade. There was no noise from upstairs. It was close to the elevators, well situated. Read entire member review >>
Would book this one again. Cool place to people watch, can see down the atrium, quiet, no noise from Promenade except on New Years Eve. Light can be intrusive if curtains are left open. Connecting cabins are fabulous, two bathrooms for four people. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom -- 8559 -- Inside Promenade State Room mid Ship
This ship is huge so it is very daunting when you arrive onboard and are trying to find your stateroom. When I arrived to my room, the room was fine and had everything I needed. Storage was adequate for me and my son, the bathroom was a bit small but it was good for what we needed it for. There was a mini bar in the fridge stocked with soft drinks but was not switched on so you could not keep milk or drinks cold. There is a kettle in the room which was a surprise and came in very handy for my morning coffee first thing in the morning. I just used the UHT milk that was provided. Don't expect any toiletries; there isn't any only a small bar of soap and a soap dispenser in the shower. There are also no bath robes in the cabin. My cabin attendant Lee was excellent and went out of his way to really look after my son. He made up our room twice a day morning and night and anticipated our needs. He was excellent.

We were in Promenade cabine 7559; a little larger than the typical inside and a better furniture arrangement, that seemed to add space to the room. There;'s a bit of noice from the Promenade below, but it comes to a halt by 11 p.m. A better value than a typical inside. Read entire member review >>
Centrally located... surrounded by cabins, not loud spaces. Sounds from the Promenade below were never a concern. Views of the Promenade are a plus over a standard inside cabin. Nice! Read entire member review >>
It was our first time in a promenade cabin. We actually liked it. The location was great. The only night we heard anything from below was Disco Night. But it only lasted 45 minutes..and it really wasn't loud enough to be disturbing. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin overlooking the cafe promenade. Good people watching, the decor could use a re-furb as its a bit dated. I think all promenade cabins still have the older teal wood coloring so really that's no complaint specific to this cabin. Shower had the doors as opposed to the older curtains which was great. Quiet after 11pm when all royal promenade activities were done. Good location and close to forward stairs/elevators, but not so close as to hear very much traffic in the halls.

This is a tiny room, with a tiny closet (singular) and both tiny and few drawers. The "Bay window overlooking the Royal Promenade" exists only in the imagination of the marketing department. Bed was OK, bath small but adequate, supplies (after I discussed with our GREAT cabin Steward) were more than ample. They have a new policy for rooms: If you are a GOLD card holder (RCCL frequent cruiser) you get both a robe and ice bucket. If not, you don't. A bride to the Steward took care of that. Again, very petty, and not a way to encourage repeat cruises. Read entire member review >>
I had a Promenade room overlooking the Promenade. It was like heaven. Big bay-window with a sofa bench so I could sit at the window and look out over the happenings on the Promenade. I had a sofa bed and the usual twins put together to form a queen. Closet space was adequate for me but might have been tight if I had a companion traveling w/m. Drawer space was so tiny I left underwear, T shirts, shorts and sox in my bag until I used them. The bathroom was adequate and very clean. The standard desk was adequate for me. There was a small table in front of sofa bed that probably didn't need to be there as it took up valuable space. I was in Rm. 7609. Oh the noise level in the room- Well can't tell you cause I was down on the Promenade making the noise when it was happening. Not much noise at 2 am on the Promenade Read entire member review >>
Our room overlooked the Royal Promenade. We have had balcony and the no-frills rooms before... but this is what we will look for next time. The window overlooking the Promenade was great. We could always see what was going on from the comfort of our room. The shower is tight for my large frame, but it had great pressure and seemingly unlimited hot water. I highly recommend the Promenade rooms. Read entire member review >>
#6557 Promenade view room. Great location..very central.
Right across from the cafe promenade and an ok view during the parades.
Tiny tiny bathroom, and only toward the end did we realize we could stow our suitcases under the bed. we crammed everything into the closet. Read entire member review >>
Liked our cabin 8257, inside but overlooking the Royal Promenade. Much smaller than the balcony cabin we had last year. Quite a tight squeeze coming into the entry door, and not much spare room for anything. The furnishings are dated, old TV, and worn out furniture. Bed was comfy and good. Read entire member review >>
Average size stateroom. Overlooks promenade....you can't really hear anything unless there is a parade going on (then you can hear the bass music pumping through the thick windows.) Closet on one side of the room, neighbors on the other but you never heard them. We have learned to bring a fan to drown out any hallway noise....totally worked! Never heard anything in the hallway. Halfway between aft and forward elevators. Seventh floor is easy enough to take stairs to gym/Windjammer. Nice to have library and internet access on this level. Read entire member review >>
The PR cabin is a little smaller than most at 152 sq. ft. All the Voyager class PR cabins only sleep two. It is okay for two. There is no noise problem. Even where there were parades in the Royal Promenade I didn't hear a thing. However, the windows are not one way. So if you don't want the people across the hall looking in, you have to close your drapes. And of course, like all inside cabins, you have to leave your cabin to find out what it is like outside.
