Cabin was always cleaned twice daily .

Mini bar/ fridge , plenty drawers etc,etc...
More than sufficient for sleeping / getting dressed / storing stuff. Read entire member review >>
We felt more movement on this deck than previous cruises (on higher decks) but there was a storm one of the nights so that may account for that! Deck 2 is very handy for embarking/disembarking at ports and quite handy at night for going to the dining room and deck 5 bars/entertainment. The only aspect that was difficult about the location was that cabin 2540 is at the very front of the ship and if you have children you will regularly need to go to deck 11 and 12 at the back of the ship. Because level 3 is split this means you have to either go up to 11 or 12 and cross to the back which is fine - but if its bad weather this really isn't an option and we did it by going to 5 and walking the promenade to the back and another lift up.
This room does not have a sofa bed. We booked it thinking the sofa would pull out but its smaller than the ones we have had in outside rooms and it doesn't pull out. That said our cabin attendant Wendy and her supervisor on deck 2 were amazing and sorted us out with an alternative. Read entire member review >>
Bed old mattress , saggy and hard, no topper and did not get one good nights sleep. I actually spent few nights on sofa. Curtains had holes in material needed replaced. Voiles
Either needed washed or preferably replaced. Don't know what £ 7 million was spent on?
Could not get extra coffee or tea ( supposed to be all inclusive ?) Read entire member review >>
I had read some reviews who had negative things to say about deck 3 in general.
I can not say if they were right about other cabins, but they could not have been more wrong when it came to 3562.
Now there are a few things to know. Unlike most decks, Deck 3 is split in half by the Ice rink.
If you can enter the Ice rink, you are on the wrong side and can not get to this cabin.
You will need to either go up a deck and through the Casino or up 2 decks and through the Promenade. After you discover this once, it is really not a big deal any longer.
3562 is near The Labyrinth and also near the Alahambra. And yes, it is down a floor from the Casino.
Let me be clear...there was NO NOISE from any of these activities. The room is quiet, clean, perfectly adequate size for a family of 4 and has the huge port window.
As we have a 4 y/o, the balcony would never have been opened. This port window gives a fantastic view and was perfect for our needs.
Besides the twin beds pushed into a King for Mom and Dad, the cabin attendant has a key that will allow him to drop 2 twin beds out of the ceiling. My sons reported they were very comfortable with plenty of room. In fact, all the beds were comfortable.
There are 2 110v outlet sockets in the room. Take and extension cord and a power strip. You will thank me.
The bathroom is small and the shower is a bit tight for a large guy. But there is enough room. When you consider that ship bathrooms have to be smaller due to space limitations on a ship, you realize what a good job the designers did.
There is not a ton of space in the closet but there was enough.
I am telling you now...whatever you think you need to bring...bring half.
You will be able to get by just fine with 2 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 swim trunks, a suit for formal night, 3 nice shirts and a handfull of T-Shirts. If you bring much more, something will be going back not worn on a 4 night cruise.
There is TV...thanks to satellite and the TV is interactive via the remote.
And I could not write this review with mentioning our cabin attendant....Elroy.
Either he is a triplet or the man never sleeps. He tidied the room at least twice a day.
His towel creations were fun. I like his bat creation the best.
There is a 2 seat Love Seat and a coffee table. In addition, you get a lighted mirror for women to apply makeup. There is a fridge and lots of little Cubby holes . The AC worked. The view was wonderful and we loved this room. I would not hesitate for a second to book this room again. Read entire member review >>
Forward cabin on front corner. Two huge windows, but a much larger cabin than even some balcony cabins we have had. Great cabin, but you can definitely feel the movement more. Read entire member review >>
Great location, but was at the end of the hall way, would have been around doorway 3244 or so. Right around the corner from Labyrinth night club and across from Theatre. Made it nice to see a late night show and be right up the hall from your room. Dining room was all the way on the other side of the ship. If you rather be near the restaurants you would want to be on the other side. Read entire member review >>
Cabin very nice, attendant very nice and attentive. Room did need to be vacuumed. After being on the beach some sand was brought into the room and was found to be there a couple of days later. Toilet started to smell, and needed to be cleaned better. Read entire member review >>
Most of the staff was friendly on a whole, but then you had some that were lacking in personality, knowledge, and just in general not very helpful. My experience from beginning to end was not a very enjoyable cruise at all. I would seriously think, in all good conscience, to check out other cruise lines because of my overall disappointment on Royal Caribbean this time around. I loved my last cruise with them, but I cannot say that this cruise was by any means comparable to that one. I was totally disgusted I'm very sorry to say. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom was awesome. Cabin attendant could not possibly have been better. I rearranged my daily fees to give the attendant a very good tip, since I did not use the dining rooms. Everything was clean, worked well, and was in order all the time due to the attention of the attendant. And, he kept my ice bucket full ALL THE TIME! It is worth paying extra for the ocean view; better than my brother's interior cabin by a long shot. Read entire member review >>
Bathroom could be bigger, but adequate and very clean,
bedroom area was OK we found plenty of space for our clothes and smalls. dressing table with draws.
Bed very comfortable and big.
Good location on deck 3 port side middle of ship. Theatre and disco were near by couldn't hear a thing.
plenty of Tea and milk supplied if you ran out just ask the attendant. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin - not too far from the lifts - adequate space and facilities. Smokers both side of us and they smoked on the balcony - we do not smoke so we had to close the cabin door so not to have smoke wafting in. Smokers should offered cabins in one section only of the ship not mixed in with non-smokers Read entire member review >>
Cabin 3318 was on deck 3 towardrs the rear half of the ship. It was comfortable and quiet. The window always seemed to have some condensation on the outside. You have to walk past about 10 cabins to get to the elevators and stairs. The main dining room was near the elevators. You cannot walk along the corridors past the cabins to the front of the ship. You have to go to deck 4 or deck 5 if you want to walk along the public areas to the from of the ship. Read entire member review >>
