We had signed up for an Interior Guarantee stateroom and were pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to an oceanview. The stateroom was large enough for two people to get around comfortably and had more than adequate storage space. Beds were comfortable and the vanity/dressing table was very convenient.

A very nice cabin. Very clean. Ample room for storage for a short cruise. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding was crisp! First time in an oceanview instead of a balcony and it was very nice. Very large window! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was up front above the show room but was very quiet apart from one time about 4.30 pm when the show was in practice. We went to every show so we didn't hear anything below us in the evening. Our cabin attendant did everything we needed and made funny animals from the towels. Read entire member review >>
Cabin itself was fine, but it was very noisy at night, often until 2 to 3 am, due to the crew's gym being immediately under the cabin. There was noise from music, treadmills, doors slamming etc Read entire member review >>
We were on the 4th floor very convenient for the Tides dining room and centrum. Room
was wheel chair accessible lots of extra room and near the elevators. Some kind of water
running noise in the bathroom wall which you can't hear if you keep the bathroom door shut. Port hole was extra large room was bright and roomy. Lots of clothes closets. Bathroom vanity was a little small very narrow. Read entire member review >>
. Unless you don’t want to be in those lower decks cabins (cells) or those inner cabins with no view you pay extra. We elected for a large ocean view stateroom #7002. It was located on the 7th deck on the bow of the boat and above the theatre. Yes, you may feel a little more motion up front, but these ships are so large you will likely not notice, unless they encounter rough seas. That is a risk everyone must be willing to take on a cruise. So consider the time of year and weather patterns. Our cruise was after the hurricane/wet season and before the dry season. Everything worked in our cabin, no problem. Did not have a balcony nor did we need one, because most will not use or need it. So why pay the extra? But if you’re a braggart, with more money than brains, go ahead and book a suite or balcony and tell everyone about it. Read entire member review >>
Last cabin aft on Deck 3. Was right below the dining room, so you did hear a little noise in the morning was they set up for breakfast and as they cleaned up after the last dinner seating. Overall, not bad. Read entire member review >>
LOTS of closet and dresser space!!
Quiet. Fairly good size.
Bed was uncomfortable. Pillows are terrible.
Does NOT have flat screen TV.
HOT!!!! Even having the thermostat on "max cool" it was really stuffy. Read entire member review >>
We had the large ocean view cabin on deck three, all the way in the back. It was noisy during certain times overnight - some clanging and banging, and was near a crew entry way. Our door was bumped several times by carts, room service, luggage collection etc. However, we barely felt any movement at all, even when the ship sailed faster towards our home destination. Plenty of space in the closet for a 5 night cruise, but I wouldn't want to spend more time than that, or we'd have to use laundry service. They could stand to upgrade TV's to LCD's in the cabins to create more space on the counter, rather than the old tube style TV's. Read entire member review >>
We were in 3502 on the RC Jewel of Sea. Cabins are small, Bathroom ok, but the Shower would not accommodate a really large person, as it has doors that fold in a half round and you cannot bend over in the shower.Closet space is typical of cruise ships, but it had more hangars than any cabin we have had. The safe operates with any code you input rather than using a credit card.This cabin is at the front of the ship and convenient for the Theatre, but the restaurants are aft so they are not convenient.

We stayed in a window room (3054). Trevor was our room steward and was a 5++++
He was exceptional. The room was fine except the toilet was very high. I'm 5'4" and my feet didn't reach the ground while on the toilet. It was NOT a handicap room. Otherwise, everything was GREAT. Read entire member review >>
We were in Cabin 7502 which is the very front of the ship looking straight out to where the ship is sailing. The bed was very comfortable. There was also a couch with a coffee table, so you could watch TV or read without always having to sit or lay on the bed. There was plenty of storage space for all of our clothes in the drawers and the closet shelves. We stored our suitcases under the bad and then used them as hampers for the dirty clothes. This made packing on the last night a snap. Read entire member review >>
