We had 3 cabins, with one having a Pullman bed. This worked great, there was adequate storage. In two of the rooms the beds were split into twin beds. We noticed there was much more floor space to move about and the room seemed more spacious. We were on level 5 and we loved this location. Read entire member review >>
Deck 7 forward location was great and convenient, however it is also the floor that has the deck outside, so you've got people passing by all hours of the day/night with smoking area.
Last night was very loud. Read entire member review >>
Although the cabin was clean and I had no problems with the stateroom staff they were great. These rooms need up dating bad. They were tiny and I had to call 2 day for repair with the to-lit and both days they did not repair a thing I watched them they did exactly what I did and took no effort to repair it. The air condition did not work correctly it was really never cold in our room and the foul odor in our bathroom was disgusting. Read entire member review >>
The cabins were nice. Crew might have been in the way when we needed to get into the room to change clothes. Forgot to put out the "Do Not Disturb" sign to avoid this. Totally my fault. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very basic. The thing that bothered me, all the carpets in the hallways looked as if they were stained. The cabin was hot as hell. We complained and finally had a small fan delivered to our room. Read entire member review >>
We loved our cabin. It was a little small, but seriously, we were never really there. There was the occasional quick shower and changing of clothes, only to rush back up on deck for music trivia, karaoke, lunch. Clean bedding. Clean bathroom. Cabin Attendant, Maria Vega was amazing in her know how. She was attentive and very pleasant. Read entire member review >>
very small and old although kept very clean by our room stewardess. Ample closet and drawer space. suitcases did not fit under the bed(s). With beds together one person had to crawl in from the bottom as it was up against the wall. Read entire member review >>
Very tiny even by cruise-ship standards. There is less than a foot on either side of the bed (or between separated beds. The built-in nightstand is really awkwardly placed. Don't count on being able to use the connecting door -- it is very narrow and only swings one way -- which a bed may be blocking. Read entire member review >>
The cabins were very small and could use some updating. Although there was nothing wrong with out cabin two of our other party members had things that were broken or not working and in need of repair. Read entire member review >>
Great little cabin. It is small, maybe 8 feet wide, but it's quiet and everything worked well. The mattress is worn out and even with the egg crate it sags in the middle. Other than the bed quality, the room is great. The location is perfect as it is not far from the Starbucks, the Schooner Bar, and the main dining room. We were able to walk to most places on board very quickly. Read entire member review >>
Room was about the size you would expect for a cruise ship. The "royal king" was not very comfortable and there was a very obvious bump in the middle of the bed where the two twin beds were pushed together.
The walls were paper thin and we could hear conversations next door as well as intimate moments between other couples. They should thank us for the shows we put on in the evenings too :)
Water pressure in the sink was abysmal, though the shower was fine. Room didn't get very cold on the lowest setting, so the A/C could also use a tune up. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was small, but at the price (essentially the same as an interior room) the added attraction of ocean view (unobstructed) made it quite acceptable. The closet is roomy with plenty of hangers. Bathroom was small but better than the one we had last year on the Independence of the Seas--roomier and better-laid-out--you could turn around in the shower without having to contort yourself like a Circue du Soleil performer. The (large) bed takes up a good part of the rear of the cabin but there is a walkway between the bed and what appears to be a sort of built-in vanity cabinet so climbing in and out of bed, though cramped, was not unnecessarily challenging. Lighting was adequate. And the cabin was ALWAYS clean: our room attendant Nicole saw to that. Read entire member review >>
Staterooms were as described. Our room attendant was outstanding, kept the rooms spotless which was no easy task with 3 teenagers and 2 women! I asked for extra towels once, and he provided them each day. He was friendly and outgoing, probably the nicest crew member we met on the ship. Deck 5 mid section was a good location, easy to get around especially when the elevators were crowded and we chose to take the stairs up or down. Read entire member review >>
The cabins are much smaller based on a similar class on Celebrity and the bathrooms are significantly smaller with it being difficult for me, being 6'4", to squeeze into a shower built for a midget. It was difficult to maneuver around the room, and there were minimal outlets, so I would highly recommend bringing an extension cord with multiple outlets to plus into the wall. No issues with noise from the engines, which was a concern since we were on the 2nd deck Read entire member review >>
Our ocean view stateroom was right in the front of deck 6, so we could see the deckhands just below our window when they were handling the lines. It was entertaining! The down side of this room is that in rough seas, the bow of the ship moves the most, so there was quite a bit of motion. Not a place for those with motion sickness. As for size, we found it very comfortable, and the bathroom was adequate for the two of us. We had a bed, desk, closet, shower, single sink vanity, safe, and hair dryer. Read entire member review >>
The room was ok, clean but dated. There is a super small love seat and a coffee table. For a bigger cruise ship, this come standard but only ocean view rooms or above to have this for this ship. Read entire member review >>
I was on the 9th floor in the middle of the ship. The room was small, but that's what I expected on a ship. It wasn't too small. We had plenty of room to move around. I loved the location of our room because it was an easy walk up and down stairs to the public locations on the ship like the pool, dining room, windjammer, etc... The elevators take forever so it was nice to be able to just take the stairs. And it was nice to be close to Windjammers when we wanted to go grab and drink and a snack. We were also just down the hall from the fitness center which made my husband happy. He used it everyday. I would try to find a room in this location again next time. Read entire member review >>
Deck 6, class F1. Rooms 6532 and 6530, adjoining. They were pretty tiny, though we expected that. No place to store our luggage; the bags didn't fit under the bed and we had to stack them in the corner, reducing floorspace. Overall the room felt sort of worn out, with spotted carpet and worn down woodwork. Felkt like it needed another refurb. Read entire member review >>
Remember to bring an alarm clock - not provided and really disorienting not to have a visual reminder of what time it was! Trust their blowdryer - it was strong enough for my use and I did not need to bring mine from home. 5542 was our home and it was always cleaned, fresh and a good location.

Our stateroom was in an excellent location, floor 6 near the elevators. Near the center part of the ship, but incredible that we couldn't hear any noises and we did take anytime naps during the day.
We really enjoyed our stateroom, it was small compared to a normal hotel but it was cosy and very clean. The bathroom was really small, you can get 2 persons at the same time there. Nevertheless we didn't have any problems during our vacations. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are small, but really have room for the essentials. We were a short walk from the stairs, and also not to far from A chorus line theatre. We heard no elevator noise, no running from the track, and no noise from any other floors. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was an ocean view in the middle of the ship. Chosen to prevent sea sickness. It was great with a wonderful view! Perfect location that was close enough to the elevator and steps but far enough away from the nose. Read entire member review >>
Great location. Love the tween deck. Centrally located, our cabin was a short walk to elevators and stairs, and just a hop, skip and a jump to shopping deck. Also, found shortcuts through Boleros and Casino. Love, love, loved this location! Read entire member review >>
