Cabin was fabulous. Very clean, and enough space for my daughter and I. Can't imagine having any more than two in this room. Balcony was great.

Cabin was very nice and very spacious for my husband and me. Our room steward kept things very nice and tidy and would recognize us anytime that we were in the halls.

This cabin was great; the bathroom showed a little wear but all in all I was impressed. We chose guaranteed cabin so got lucky I guess, because it is longer than a normal cabin, definitely longer than our Concierge Class Balcony on Celebrity Constellation and Balcony on Equinox. Although those are slightly nicer, I had no complaints with this one. The only down side to being so far back is on port days we were awoken (if not already awake) by the ship stopping. (Sorry, I don't know the term, but it made kind of a loud vibrating noise and jerking motion). I think it would have been worse on lower floors probably. For us it wasn't a big deal, because if the ship was stopping, that meant we should be getting off anyway! If you don't like walking, you do have to go the center of the ship for stairs as there is no rear stair set that connects. The best part for us was they could open the dividers on the balcony so it was like having a double sized balcony with our cruisemates next door.

Our room steward was very good. The room was very, very nice. I think the glass on the balcony should be cleaned often, at least at the beginning of each trip. I even asked our room steward to clean it , but it didn't get done. Next time I will bring some windex.

Cabin 8660
Jan 2017
We had a spacious balcony room, 8660. Send me a PM if you would like to see. We were impressed with how much room there was and how many storage options there were. Having sailed only on NCL and Carnival, the room on RCCL was MUCH better. Great view, more aft, but somewhat in the middle, not near any elevators or housekeeping closets, so it was nice and quiet. Our room was rather dirty when we arrived: hair on the balcony, sticky residue on the night stands, black ring in the toilet. We notified our room steward and it was rectified immediately. However, we were somewhat disappointed this happened at all. Although, we appreciate how quickly one cruise ends and another begins and sometimes things fall through the cracks.Our room steward was amazing - got us robes, and a topper for our mattress.

We had gone for a Guaranteed balcony, so I was pleasantly surprised to get a D3, as they a just a little bigger. We had the queen-size bed option and the beds are beginning to sag, so there was a mound in the centre, but they are still incredibly comfortable. The cabin was clean and well looked after by our attendant Franklyn. Storage space is good with room to put everything away. The bathroom was clean and kept clean. The shower gel seemed fine though I didn't use it as shampoo, preferring my own. Having a balcony is always good.

The cabin stunned me. Our D3 linked cabins on deck 8 were bigger than I expected, better planned and the balconies were absolutely fine. The cabin was spotless which was a theme that was kept throughout the cruise. A tick box sheet of paper allowed us to communicate with our cabin steward on his busiest day. We asked for one of the doubles to be separated into singles and for balcony divider to be opened.

We saved money booking a Guarantee Balcony X Cabin. I couldn't have picked a better cabin my self. Great no problems no noise above or below. Great powerful shower. Not far from elevators too.

Few choices By: gballard
Just a typical balcony stateroom, where the couch folds out to a queen bed as well since we had a tween traveling with us.

As a solo traveler, I book a balcony and always find plenty of storage space and hangers. Loved the small refrigerator for keeping my own wine chilled. Bathroom was well kept, and finding shower doors (as opposed to the dreaded floppy curtain) was a real plus. My bed was very comfortable. Since I prefer a blanket to a duvet, I requested the change and was immediately given a light blanket and duvet removed. My lovely room stewardess, Isabell, was a joy to speak with and always cheerful.

We loved the Indy! By: Rosemary222
Great room. Long walk to the elevators, but nice and quiet. Never heard any noise from the hallway or above or below or from adjacent rooms. We enjoyed overlooking the port at Falmouth and watching the late-returners dashing for the ship! Our fabulous cabin steward kept the place well-stocked and spotless.

Great Cruise By: freedom-lover
We had cabin 7248 which was close to the elevators. We never had any problems with noise. The only issue we had with the cabin was a sewage smell coming from the bathroom. We contacted Guest Relations and they sent someone to fix it but unfortunately the smell was there pretty much the entire cruise.

Queue and Tip By: La_Corse
Big enough for family of four if kids are happy to share the sofa bed. Room smaller than expected. Balcony downwind of too many other cabins (with smokers).

Layout of balcony cabin is nice. Closet space is good, cabin size is fine, shower is good. Be cautious of yellow water coming out of bathroom sink, toilet and shower. Cabin mini refrigerator was never cold. Was told by maintenance that it is a "cooler" not a refrigerator and we never had cold beverages in our cabin. Our family members mini refrig. in the cabin next to ours, was always cold. Also, the only electric plug-in, for CPAP machines, etc. is by vanity mirror/desk, and there is no outlet by bed to plug anything into, so you need an extension cord.

I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the cabin. It catered for all our needs and plenty big enough for the two of us. There were ample plug sockets which is a worry for us women. The bed was very very comfortable. I couldn't fault the cabin at all.

Cabin was great for the two of us with sofa and balcony. Nice shower and everything spotlessly clean. We were towards rear of ship close to midships stairs and lifts so handy to get to restaurants/dining but a pleasant walk thru promenade deck to theatre etc.... Quiet and no noise and even in rough seas was ok Have previously had cabin at front on this ship and in rough weather even on deck 8 the spray and waves broke on balcony - exciting stuff!!! Some passengers up front felt it was too far to walk to get their meals.... ie should have been warned perhaps or go on a smaller ship in future
