In comparing a past cruise with this cruise we found...
l. You have more cabin space and storage space when you book a cabin that has two bunks (instead of a bed that stays open all the time)
2. An inside cabin was absolutely fine for this 5 port Mediterranean cruise as you are rarely ever there Read entire member review >>
Since I am a recent widower the cabin was big enough for me with sufficient storage space. I do resent paying two hundred percent as a solo traveler, but understand that Royal expects to fill each cabin with at least two people. Read entire member review >>
We booked this cruise last minute so we could only get an inside room. Not much to say...it was the typical small room but it was clean and served its purpose. I would've preferred a balcony room but that's my fault for booking last minute. Read entire member review >>
It's tight for 4 people. We had two beds pushed together and two pullman (bunk) beds on either side of that. Most of our items fit in the closet but I did have to live out of one suitcase for the week. Other than that there were plenty of drawers and storage space in the bathroom for toiletry items and electronic devices (cameras, phones, tablets). Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very spacious for being the cheapest one available when we booked. It had a surprising amount of closet space and other storage spaces. We stored our suitcases under the bed to get them out of the way and were able to unpack all of our clothes and shoes etc in the room just fine with plenty of extra space. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had a ton of water pressure. I have no complaints about the cabin. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small. With beds together less than one foot on either side, and barely room to get around end of bed. Would have been better with a single chair rather than sofa and small table. Bathroom was small but adequate. Shower was tight, can't bend over unless doors are open. Barely room to turn around. NO OUTLETS in bathroom, except small one for an electric shaver. Adequate closet space, though with four in this room, maybe not (has two upper berths).
TV on an arm to swing towards the beds but it wouldn't stay at a good angle. Interactive system was not as good as Carnival's. Could not see dinner menu's, very slow, sometimes had to wait up to 10 minutes before getting into menu.
It was our first time in an Interior and, after this won't do an RCI interior again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin attendant Jeffrey was really nice. Although it took forever to arrange the room for three people and it didn't seem like they every changed the sheets, Jeffrey always made sure we woke up for breakfast and gave us clean towels Read entire member review >>
EXCELLENT location near elevators, halfway between pools and dining, and tucked in a quiet hallway away from main traffic. Loved where our cabin was. That said, cabin itself was a bit smaller than expected - certainly smaller than we've had on other cruises (Disney 3X, RCL 1X). We struggled to find space to unpack clothes for three and all week we had stuff laying around the room due to lack of space to put it away. We made it through the week fine though. Cabin was ok, location was excellent. Read entire member review >>
No problems, as with most cabins in this day of electronics, we could have used more electrical outlets. In our experience this interior cabin is slightly smaller than most cabins. It does not seem that the furniture would accommodate a third person, and four would be an apparent impossibility. However, the cabin was very comfortable for the two of us.

This is the last cabin on the starboard side on deck 9. All the other cabins in the row are balcony cabins - this one has a door to the balcony cabin next door to make it an adjoining cabin for kids. As a result of that door, there is an armchair instead of a loveseat. Cabin steward Peter was excellent and cabin was kept spotless. Read entire member review >>
As nice of a room that I have stayed in.
Bed was very soft memory foam. I slept real well.
Had everything i needed. Only complaint I can come close to making is the TV remote didn't work the way i expected but I wasn't on a cruise to watch TV so I didn't bother to find out what I needed to do. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great. We are only in there to sleep so it worked with a lot of patience. We have the two of us and out 22 year old daughter and 14 year old son. It worked fine and the attendant was superb. Read entire member review >>
Typical interior room. Cramped but since we were rarely in the room, it didn't matter. This room was exceptionally quiet. We did not hear any noises at night an rarely heard anything during the day Read entire member review >>
We were upgraded to a "handicapped" cabin. It was bigger than a normal cabin and I liked the extra room. I noticed that the bathroom had been cleaned in a hurry before we got to our room, and wasn't very clean. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and nice, a bit small but still it was Ok if you are never in the room, I´d rather have a window or balcony. The bathroom was clean and nice and the closet is spacious. Read entire member review >>
Standard small interior stateroom, very quiet, 8 drawers, four closet shelves, 2 vanity cabinets in the room and one in the bathroom, ample closet space, clothes line in the shower to dry swim suits. Small but had everything we needed for the minimal amount of time we spent in the room. Read entire member review >>
Adjoins with 1607 (which has 2 pull down beds and no couch) and has 2 beds ONLY. No pull down or foldout couch. Only a chair. Bathrooms in both rooms had tiny round showers. Read entire member review >>
Rooms are super tiny, but we did not care as we are never in our room so this was not a big deal to us. My in-laws had a balcony room which was awesome and we enjoyed using their balcony during the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Actually 9609 was a nice size, had lots of places for clothes and toiletries. We had the beds separated because of my knee problems. Also they had put pod doors on the shower, much between than the clingy shower curtains used to be. Only problem with the room, is the water gets hot fast. We would come in to take and shower and I would immediately put my head under the faucet, because you got a minute of cold water that was it. Then the water got hot, I would turn it back and forth and finally find some very, very warm, but better than that very hot. Read entire member review >>
Small cabin and very dark with the lights off. You can fit everything in there if you unpack and store your suitcases underneath your bed. The bathroom is small. Our stateroom attendant was awesome though - very friendly and made awesome towel creatures! Looked a bit dated, but we were rarely in the room so no big deal. Also very quiet - were on deck 9 forward right by the elevators which was nice. Read entire member review >>
I had cabins 8685 and 8687 which were connecting cabins. I was surprised to find out when you have connecting inside rooms both rooms do not get couches. Both rooms were quiet but they are the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in. The same classification of room is larger on both Carnival and Disney. Read entire member review >>
We had an inside stateroom. small but has lots of storage and plenty of room. The showers are very small but I don't expect a luxury bathroom. We had everything we needed and the housekeeping staff was excellent. Read entire member review >>
I really hope that this advice reaches parents of young children. Our boys sleep 2-3 hours more per day than we do so staying in one room, no matter how large, always presents problems when travelling. We decided to take two interior cabins with an adjoining door forward on the sixth deck: 6111 and 6113. For a price less than a suite with a balcony, we had more square footage, two bathrooms, two TVs and two closets. The boys could rest without being disturbed by the light or TV on in our cabin. The two bathrooms were very handy for our family of four when getting ready for formal nights and dressing in the mornings. Of course we didn't have a balcony or even a window, but I have always cruised in interior cabins without issue and you only sleep in your cabin. The ridiculous little glass coffee tables stored nicely in the closets (We placed shoes and carry-ons underneath them.) The extra floor space is more useful than those little things. The rooms were always clean and quickly attended to. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were quiet. Read entire member review >>
For the first week I had 6365 and the second week I had 7371. Both were interior and sole-occupancy. I'm afraid to go balcony, as I'll never go back, and can't afford it!!! For myself both were perfect. Plenty of waredrobe space, drawers which I didn't use and a bathroom which was quite sufficient. I couldn't imagine sharing one of these with anybody else. They are suitable only for one person. Both were very quiet with excelllent attendants. I would have preferred not to have to change, and I couldn't see how that could not have been arranged as I had booked 7 months in advance. Read entire member review >>
The interior room was SO small. The shower was a small tube. I am in very good shape and even I found them claustrophobic. The picture on the TV keep going in and out. They might want to check their satellite signal. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 7369, an interior cabin that had bunk beds. This cabin accomodated a family of four. It was a bit of a tight squeeze with all of us, but was fine. We put our luggage under the bed, and had enough closet and storage space for all of us. Read entire member review >>
6361 is a good location overall (near the elevators, one floor down to Royal Promenade, one floor up to the Library) but let's be clear: this is a tiny, tiny room. Two bunks come out of the ceiling in this room. Bathroom is serviceable but beware: if you have a child who forgets to flush the toilet at bedtime (#1 only - mind you), it will REEK in the morning and for days afterward. The toilet bowls are plastic, NOT porcelain. Read entire member review >>
Noisy hallway usually starting around 7 am. So if you were up late the night before bring a fan or something to drown out the noise.
Light for bathroom is in awkward spot outside the bathroom. Should be a night light in bathroom especially if you do not have a balcony or window. Read entire member review >>
My only complaint relates to price structure of cabins - I initially was planning for it to be just 2 of us which would've been about $650/person. When checked out the price to add my 15 year old I had to pay an addition $1000 for him. I assume it is because we needed a room that could house 3 people but the increase in peer person price didn't make sense to me.
Instructions on how to use the shower would be good, it took the 3 of us and a number of cold showers before we figured out that you had to push the red button to get hot water. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1391 - Freedom of the Seas, Deck 10. Lots of vibration and mechanical noise. Room unaffected by activities above on Deck 11 (Windjammer Cafe). Impressed with utilization of space. Need some kind of small night light since it is interior cabin. Even at 8 in the morning it seems like the middle of the night. Read entire member review >>
We had an interior state room on deck 10 aft (Windjammer cafe and pool on deck 11). We had no problem with 3 people in it (1 adult, 2 children). We were able to unpack all our clothes and put them away in the closet or drawers provided. We removed the life vests and stored them on the floor in the closet and used the racks for clothes storage. We were located next to the crew space and the noise did wake me up twice during the whole week, however, my kids slept through it. The couch was nice as a seating area or just for storing our bags, but the coffee table kind of got in the way, we never used it and could sure use the additional space. Read entire member review >>
Good loation to either front or aft elevators. Quiet. Small and when made into double bed, unable to get by without climbing on bed. Difficult but not impossible to get large bags under bed. Read entire member review >>
Wonderfully comfortable bedding, rounded shower with good water pressure, FREE use of in-cabin safe, nice flat-screen TV, and plenty of clothes hangars. Interior cabin on deck 9 was very quiet due to its forward location. However, select a more aft location if you don't like long waits for the elevator (at meal time) and long walks to the dining room. Read entire member review >>
I was very happy with the size and the appearance of Freedom's interior cabins. Nice linens, a flat screen TV, attractive artwork and even a small loveseat. The space was very well laid-out. The bathroom was small but very well appointed. Read entire member review >>
