I was very disappointed in the cabin size. It was advertised as a large interior stateroom; but it was THE smallest interior stateroom I've ever been in. That particular cabin at least should not be advertised as "large." With the bed arranged as a King, there is no way to actually walk to the bedside stands. That was the arrangement when we boarded. The Cabin Steward separated the beds (as we had requested when booking), and with the stands side-by-side between the beds, there was plenty of space.
Also, there was an upholstered chair just inside the door. When it was "in place," my roomie and I could not pass each other going to/from the bathroom or closets. To get it out of our way, we pushed it toward the door; but then the door couldn't fully open. This stateroom should be converted to a single or a crew storage area. Truly!
On the plus side, the storage in this cabin is EXCELLENT! There was a small 3-drawer stack that we never used, my roomie didn't use the mirror-side shelves, and there was at least one large drawer that went unused for most of the cruise.
The BATHROOM: It was really small. I mean REALLY small. The sink itself was tiny, and the position of the faucet (off to the side) made using it a challenge. The shower stall was a joke. There was no way to bend over without either hitting your head or shoving the shower curtain out.
The HVAC was poor; but this might have to do with being at the end of the line down the corridor, In any case, the cruise line should do somethig about this. It was hot in Baltimore when we set said. After a hectic time driving/boarding/Lido Deck-ing, we looked forward to having a cool cabin, It was not to be. We had it cranked all the way up; but onlly on Day 2 did it get semi-cool. It never got better; and in fact, toward the end of the cruise, it was def warm again. No air moving.
Do NOT book this cabin. Read entire member review >>
This was our first time to try an inside cabin, but it won't be the last. We were nervous since we'd always had a balcony or a window, but we were fine. Yes, it was small, but we never felt claustrophobic, The worst part was the shower curtain, but it's the same that's in the balcony cabin we had on our previous Grandeur cruise. They really need to do something about those! Our cabin was on the seventh floor and our cabin attendant was very attentive and kept our collapsible ice cooler filled with ice. (I did miss not having a refrigerator.) One note : I had read the suggestion to take hooks for the wall, and this definitely helped in keeping our inside cabin tidy! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was great due in large part to our attendant... The bathroom was recently updated but had several mechanical issues..... Cabin in a great location near the elevators & stairs no cabins on either side of ours.. Read entire member review >>
Our Inside cabin was a little tighter than what we're used to (Carnival) with the shower being the only aspect that we'd give a less than passing grade; it was like showering in a phone booth (with an overly friendly shower curtain...despite our use of weighted clips along the bottom).

Was very surprised at how much closet space and storage we had in our interior stateroom. The only issue is the shower. It is tiny and the shower curtain sticks to you. I felt sorry for our attendant because the bathroom was always a wet mess after we showered. Read entire member review >>
this was the best of the three cabins we have had on royal caribbean. we splurged on the large interior stateroom not because it gave us more storage, but that it gave us some breathing space. Read entire member review >>
This is a great cabin, we never heard any noise. It is very cozy with lots of storage. It is next to an electrical room (not a pantry), and close to the "secret staircase" to the spa and the Park Café which we used to go to breakfast. It is a "horizontal" or "sideways" cabin, and seemed more spacious due to this configuration. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. We thought we might feel claustrophobic, but we did not. Instead, we felt cozy and protected. Due to the configuration of the cabin, it almost felt like we had a walk-in closet. Highly recommend this cabin! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small but serviceable. Found room for everything we brought. We put our small suitcases under the bed and had to put the large suit cases in the closet so we lost some floor space but it worked OK for us. We had the bed made up put together and you had to step over the corner next to the vanity to get in and out on that side.
Our Stateroom Attendant Luis was very attentive and did a great Job of keeping our room serviced.
Being an interior cabin it was very quiet and dark and we slept well every night. First time we have done an interior cabin. Read entire member review >>
Our biggest concern with the cabin going in, was its location. However, we had no issues. We never heard any noise from the Centrum, from the elevators or from the casino above. There was also enough room under our bed to put our luggage. The bed was low, but it was very comfortable.
Two small issues with this cabin. First, the showers are small with a curtain, knew this coming in, no problem, but the soap dispenser was mounted on the wall inside the shower and both my wife and I knocked it off several times and the soap poured out. Shout out to our steward, it was refilled each day, Second, the door to the hallway didn't shut flush with the door jam, so there was a light coming in at night below the door knob. I simply hung the shirt I wore to dinner on the handle and it covered the light coming in. Read entire member review >>
We found the bed in the cabin to be very low and that we could not store our bags under our bed but there was room next to the closet to store and ample space to sote all of our clothers. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was really small and with two people, the chair needed to be removed but the doorway was too small so it was in the way the whole cruise. I could also tell that the room had not been vacuumed as you can see the dirt on the floor. Was a little disappointed at that. For a large stateroom, oh my, the shower was really tiny.

This is the most negative cabin review I have every written, but I think it's important to give an objective and honest opinion. This particular cabin was horrendous! The layout makes it impossible to move around if the beds are put together. When arriving in the room, an occasional chair blocked the entrance, and there was a lone side table just sitting in the middle with no apparent purpose. If you needed to use the restroom in the middle of the night, I could almost guarantee a stubbed toe. Putting the chair in the corner near the closet, with the table on top of it, provided the "solution". I was told the chair couldn't be put in storage, even though it couldn't be used.
The Grandeur's beds (in this category) have probably never been replaced. I am about 5'7" tall, and the bed was so low that it didn't come up to the back of my knee. There was no room to put luggage under the beds, so valuable closet space was lost to store luggage.
If you have booked this room, or are considering doing so, think seriously about changing cabins. The mattresses are sagging, old and well-past their useful life. My son's suite had newer and taller beds. Also, there is no refrigerator/minibar in the room. The items that are for sale are piled on the vanity (again, wasting what little space is there) and no inventory list to let you know what should be there. I had placed everything in the cabinet above the vanity when I arrived, but my folio was charged for items that I didn't consume, however it was very difficult to say how many items should have been there when I arrived.

It is small- but we knew this going in. It is larger than just a normal interior stateroom.
The shower had lots of pressure and got pretty hot. The sink is small and the sink fixture does not come out far enough to properly clean your hands (but they all are like this)
It is near the R bar and centrum- so centrally located but we never heard any music once the door was shut. Read entire member review >>
3107 (accessible room) is quiet and near an elevator for easy access for wheelchair. I detected no odors (this seems to be a regular complaint) The bathroom was in good shape (must have been recently repaired). My only complaint is that the carpet is not often cleaned. I find this on most cruise ships. Read entire member review >>
Category L, Cabin 7077: Excellent Location. Expect it to be cramped - it is. Expect to hear Centrum noise until 11P - you will. Knowing what to expect will eliminate anxiety. Helps to separate the beds. Large bags no longer easily fit under the bed. You may wish to remove stuffed chair, to enhance your ability to move about the room. If you typically require a larger area to move around, book a D2 or above category. Bring a clothespin to clip on the bottom of the shower curtain. Good storage options, throughout the cabin. No refrigerator, but does have a safe and hair dryer. Good mirrors and lighting. Read entire member review >>
We booked a large interior cabin which was almost the same as my daughter's which was a standard interior cabin. The closes and the bathroom was OK, but the space is very limited. Our cabin was on the deck eight, and since it was close to the elevators it was too noisy we heard since a lot of children running and shouting all the time. Read entire member review >>
The middle hallway is much more quiet than the main aisles. Everything in the cabin was clean and in good repair. Lots of storage space, drawers in the desk, night tables, even in the closet. Several racks for for hanging clothes. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4765 is an L class cabin. It's an inside cabin on the 4th deck just forward of the Champagne Bar on the port side, center line. It's very convenient to the Great Gatsby Dining Room to the aft, elevators are just forward. The room does not have a refrigerator. There is plenty of drawer space, room in the closet for the bags that wouldn't fit under the bed. There is a hair dryer next to the desk. The bed is very comfortable, and the duvet kept us very warm. The shower has a curtain, and a body wash dispenser. Read entire member review >>
As listed above,and in other reviews I've read there seems to be major sewer problems,maybe lack of sewer maint,other wise cabin great.
Misinformation in "Cruise Compass" As posted in compass come to purser deck after standing in line for 20 minutes was told OH that was cancelled
The Crown and Anchor waiting area for departure over crowded Read entire member review >>
Excellent storage and closet. Curtain to close the bed from the rest of the room is a good idea. Under the casino bar back room so trouble with noise on 2 nights (the staff addressed this promptly). vEry convienient location just steps from teh atrium Read entire member review >>
The bathroom was a good size for a cruise ship bathroom, and we had ample closet and drawer space. The bed was comfortable. Overall, we really enjoyed the location of our cabin in terms of
proximity to the elevators/stairs. We didn't feel a lot of rocking,
and we felt like we had a wonderful cabin. Overall, this was the
largest inside cabin I had ever stayed in. Read entire member review >>
