Obviously, it's a cruise ship - the cabins are small, but there was more than enough room for the time spent in the cabin. Nothing better than having coffee every morning on the balcony as we relax on the cruise. Read entire member review >>
I was able to check out three other cabins besides our own and they were all in good shape with no obvious signs of age or disrepair. The size was the same as other ships we've been on with lots of storage space. Our cabin steward did the one thing that I find most important when beginning a new cruise, he came to our cabin and introduced himself. He told us his schedule and how he’d like to see the routine go, I appreciated that and we got along just fine. We never went without a thing and always had his full attention.

This boat is old and there is a funny smell in the bathroom. The cabin is a little tight, compared to the newer RCCL ships. I liked the balcony size and the way the balcony is enclosed. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is midship and so we felt very little motion except for one evening when we encountered some really heavy winds. We had great port views for every port except Aruba. Read entire member review >>
Very nicely decorated. I have two complaints about the cabin experience. Our bed was very uncomfortable. It was like a mattress on top of a sheet of plywood. This is the only time we experienced this. Past cruises were very comfortable. They need to upgrade the mattresses. The television cable selections were very poor. Too many channels in Spanish and the news stations to choose from were very poor. We also had problems viewing our billing on the TV. We had to use two remotes to be able to use this function. Sitting out on the balcony was very relaxing. Read entire member review >>
Typical balcony stateroom. We usually sail on the Starboard side because of port docking. However on this itinerary most of the docking was on the Port side.
Our cabin steward was wonderful and very friendly. Read entire member review >>
Very nice cabin, comfortable bed, plenty of space, great blackout curtains. Bathroom nice, again plenty of space for toiletries, water pressure rather weak and water temperature somewhat uneven. Cabin always clean, cabin steward was fantastic (Diego), but fridge didn't keep things cold. Balcony door creaked a lot so we had to keep it slightly open at night or my wife couldn't sleep.

Perfect location. Not to high, right smack in the middle of the ship. I hardly felt any movement even during rough seas. Bed was much harder than we're used to, with very little relief offered, even though Super Attendant Reggie tried his best. Just enough room for us, but we could've used a few more hangers in our closet. Read entire member review >>
The balcony is great because you have extra space, but it was windy and hot. So if you wanted to enjoy the ocean air, your stateroom would get hot and the wind was too strong. We also still felt this ship move. Read entire member review >>
Lovely, comfortable cabin with full-size sofa bed. Shower is glass-enclosed (not a curtain). Balcony is small with solid metal front but still provided our own piece of the ocean/islands. Extra shelves in closet and drawers on both sides of vanity provide adequate storage. Vinceroy, our cabin steward, kept our cabin spotless. In addition he went out of his way to make me comfortable when, upon arrival, I told him I had recently broken my arm. He brought me extra pillows so I could sleep sitting up, extra padding for our beds and a shower stool for extra safety. We never came back to our room to find out he hadn't made it up yet. Don't know how he did it. He was delightful and efficient. Cabin was located over a main dining room but very quiet. Since it was only 1 deck above the Promenade we enjoyed using the stairs a lot.

Cabin was in excellent condition and our steward Denton went out of his way to keep it clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We brought wine on board during embarkation and he was more than happy to chill it anytime we asked. Read entire member review >>
our balcony cabins were exactly what we expected...plenty of storage. We had a couple of glitches in our bathroom which were fixed quickly and without incident. We arranged to have our grandson's cabin decorated for his birthday, as a surprise for him. The decorations were whimsical and very fun. We also arranged through Royal Caribbean to have a birthday cake for our grandson delivered to our table in the dining room the last evening on board. It was beautiful and quite good. You do have to reconfirm these extras before boarding or your plans may go awry. Read entire member review >>
Nice balcony, lots of closet and drawer space for our clothes. The bathroom was plenty big enough and the temperature setting on the shower was perfect, and you never had to adjust it. Our cabin steward kept our room spotless and well supplied, and really made an effort to take care of any needs we had. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than the comparable Princess cabin from our last cruise, but functional once we figured out how to use all of the storage to its best advantage. We found the bed comfortable (we like a firm bed) and the bathroom was kept clean by our friendly cabin attendant.
I do need to point out that when we first arrived, we found dirty hand towels under the bed, used dental floss in the bathroom (in a cabinet where the glass shelves needed to be cleaned) and were very disappointed by this. Our attendant (who had been on vacation) took care of this.
The balcony (which of course costs extra) was not totally useful because of paint chips on the floor and chair. We were also disappointed that the loveseat and curtains looked like original equipment from 2001 -- we know the Adventure is headed for drydock this fall and we hope it gets more than a cosmetic facelift in its public spaces.

Liked the layout, with the bed next to the balcony. Lots of cubbies for storage. Room steward kept the place spotless. Bed is bad. Hard as a rock, but our steward did the best he could with extra padding and pillows. Read entire member review >>
Bump Cabin...excellent location. No problems with noise or plumbing. Slight musty smell but nothing unbearable. Was cool at night with a/c on. Comfortable bed but could use new pillows. Clean. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was the typical deluxe oceanview stateroom. It was impeccably clean and everything worked great. I was impressed with how little noise I heard from surrounding rooms and the hallway. If I had one complaint it would be how hard the beds are. That said, some folks like this so it is really a personal preference. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was comfortable. The hump balcony offered good views but blocked any breeze that might have come from the font of the ship so we used it infrequently. Unfortunately the toilets in our section were out three times and we had to walk down a couple floors to use the public. Once in my jammies! There was a slight urine smell in the room unless we kept it chilly. We had no complaints about the bed or pillows and storage is plentiful. Read entire member review >>
The cabins have new flatscreen TVs but everything else is pretty much unchanged (new toilet seats if you want to count that). The curtains were filthy and that made me unhappy, but we had port views for most of our stops and, although the cabin is identified as 'forward'' we were pretty close to midship. The only negative was that we were far from stairs and elevators so we were always taking long walks down the hallway no matter where we were headed. Read entire member review >>
Very nice hump balcony. Mirror in the bath could be replaced, showing its age a bit, but not a big deal for us. Views were perfect. Right in the middle of the hump which is our favorite place to be. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was pretty much what we expected, having sailed on Royal Caribbean before and on the AOS!!! We had our stateroom attendant remove the glass coffee table (which in our mind, service no purpose, expect be in the way). Without the table, there was more room to move around and use the sofa completely. Read entire member review >>
I really liked our balcony cabin. It was spacious (for a ship), with lots of storage for our clothes and toiletries, a small couch, fridge, safe, desk, flatscreen T.V. and small, private balcony. It would have been helpful to have a television guide since it was hit and miss without it. I also think movies should be included in the price of the cruise. Our steward, Jeremie, was very friendly and kept our room clean. We were near the back of the ship on the 7th floor. Read entire member review >>
Very Good! Shower glass had a couple of cracks in it, but presented no problems. Part way through the cruise we couldn't hear announcements in our cabin for some reason. TV selections very limited. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was conveniently located, very quiet in the evenings, and ALWAYS kept clean. Great stateroom attendant. The light switch to the bathroom was in an awkward position, on the side of the door with the hinges as opposed to the side that opens. Can get a bit warm, a small desk fan would be nice.

We had a mid-ship Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with balcony (7312). It was near the elevators and stairs and we never had too much noise or traffic due to the close proximity of either. The room was clean and everything in the room was in working order. The room size and layout is fine. The storage space was good and allowed us to stay organized. The luggage was easily stored under the bed enabling us to use the luggage as a hamper. The balcony was great. I know a lot of people don’t particularly care for the design of the balcony on this ship, but we liked it just find. It was nice and private enough to soak up the night breeze (if you catch my drift) and enjoy morning breakfast. There are only two mid-ship balcony staterooms on each side of the ship that allow you to see both forward and aft. So, choose your mid-ship balconies accordingly. Our room attendant was good and he was personable. He left us our requisite amount of towel pets. We felt he pampered us well. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is on the hump. It is right beside the lifts and stairs on deck 6. We found it quiet and an excellent location for getting to the Royal Promenade which is on deck 5 with little effort and not having to wait for the lift.It is a standard balcony cabin, we found it clean and comfortable. At the time we sailed May 2013 it still had an old style TV (not flat screen). The air conditioning was not working when we got on board but once it was seen by the maintenance staff it was fixed and we had no further problems. Read entire member review >>
Closet was fine, even had enough hangars. Quiet location. Of course the bathroom was miniscule. The balcony was almost totally enclosed by metal which was a huge disappointment. Bed wasn't that comfortable but I've slept on worse. Read entire member review >>
I always try to book a cabin at midship where the bulge is. These balcony cabins have trapezoid balconys. They are much more spacious than others.
Tried a promenade interior stateroom on the Freedom. Pretty cool. The bay window removes that claustraphobic impression compared to other interior staterooms. Read entire member review >>
6574 - grubby sofa, chipped mirror but very clean otherwise and comfortable
6575 - noisy from promenade, VERY noisy because interconnecting room, so if you haven't got the connecting cabin DO NOT ACCEPT Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7620 is all about location - it is a mid hump balcony cabin so is quite a sort after position. The views can't be bettered!
It is also situated close to the lifts and right alongside the library. Read entire member review >>
Maybe a published TV guide as well as the on screen guide would be useful.
Individual shampoo - wasn't too keen on using the shower gel as shampoo!!
My daughter's interior cabin was next to a store area which was ok until we had a rough night at see and whatever was on the shelf in the store kept banging against her bedroom wall.
We found we had plenty of wardrobe space and the bed was lovely and comfy as were the pillows. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a great size with plenty of storage space. The bed was a little uncomfortable, but nothing we couldn't cope with. My only complaint was that smoking was allowed on the balconies. We couldn't enjoy our balcony as much as we would have like because of smokers in other rooms. Read entire member review >>
Reasonable size, large Balcony with a great view, VERY clean, lots of storage space. Quiet (slept like a baby & I'm a very light sleeper!), great location close to elevators. Read entire member review >>
Great location on the Starboard hump near the elevators. Easy access to Royal Promenade 2 decks down, Windjammer 4 decks up. No noise. Great view from hump balcony. Compact bathroom, although ample storage in the closet and drawers for 2 people. Read entire member review >>
This is a handicapped cabin. The bathroom isn't great, and they could use an extra outlet here. The location was fine - nearby elevators - but we never quite figured whether we were closer to the fore or aft end of the ship! If that was our only problem though, we did just fine. Once you've had a balcony, it's really hard, if not impossible to go back to a regular cabin. It was nice to have enough space for my scooter, but again, since this was a handicapped cabin, it would have been nice to have a place to plug it in at night. Read entire member review >>
