We opted for an inside stateroom this year to keep costs down, and were in 7577 on deck 7. We had our two teenage children with us, so there were 2 Pullman beds which were ideal (although they had a metal panel in front of the cabin wall, which was very noisy if the kids turned over and hit it during the night). We have never had an inside stateroom before, so were a little concerned that it would be smaller, or that we would find it too dark etc, but it was absolutely fine. In fact, we had more space than previous years when the kids have used the sofa bed in balcony cabins, as opposed to Pullman beds.
Stateroom is midship, so is good if you're concerned about feeling any movement (which we rarely did on this cruise)
Our only complaint about our stateroom was that we had no kettle to make a cup of tea or coffee in the mornings. Apparently they only provide kettles for cruises departing from the UK!!
Our stateroom attendant, Janelly Peralta, was AMAZING! She was hard working, friendly, efficient, cheerful, and so helpful. She is definitely the best stateroom attendant we have had and is a real asset to Royal Caribbean. Read entire member review >>
Great location for those who don't want to "rock 'n roll" because of unusual weather! Felt little, excessive movement because of cabin location. Hearing the lapping of water was unexpected but soothing. Read entire member review >>
The Cabin had an overbearing smell of Urine the whole 4 days, and there was trash leftover from the people who had just checked out only a few hours before upon our arrival.
The furniture was ancient and coming apart (the drawers didn't even open and shut nicely). Carpet was old and dingy. Read entire member review >>
We wanted a different type of room, but realized that this cruise was almost "sold out" when we booked in June I believe. We took it anyway in order to make the trip. We were pretty close to 9062 which, as you know, has a history with the ship. I thought of the incident every time I went by it. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great! We never had any problems with it. Our room steward was very attentive and friendly. It was close to elevators. We never heard any noise from the hallway or above us. Read entire member review >>
Room was large and easy to maneuver. The shower was also large with a convenient fold away stool. The automatic door was both a blessing and a curse. From the outside, you could only open the door with the auto button. While this was convenient, it held the door open for too long allowing everyone to see anyone else in the room maybe in the bed or in a state of undress. There was no way to get it to close earlier. If you were inside, you could open it manually, but it was very, very difficult to do so. Read entire member review >>
We had a very nice balcony with lots of storage space and hanging clothes area. Shower was larger than usual which does not mean "large" just a little bigger than we usually have. Our cabin was high up and very quite towards the front of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Great room. It was quiet and spacious. We didn't even miss having a window. We had a huge closet and lots of storage. There was even room for a large hamper we brought on board. We will get an interior cabin again on our next cruise. Read entire member review >>
Door configuration bizarre - couldn't go to toilet if someone else was looking in a wardrobe for something to wear.
Light was on a slow light so took time to warm up when turned on - not sure if deliberate feature or not, but very useful in the night so as not to wake everyone us with bathroom trips. Not as many hiding places/storage as P&O had - there were places they could have added but didn't.
Our room a little noisy at times (but not after midnight) as we were close to the Centrum music/bar. Didn't bother us though and it was quite handy to be able to prop open the door to hear Captain's announcements as I believe you can't hear them in all cabins (deliberately so).
