We were very pleased with our junior suite. Very comfortable and roomy. Having a walkin closet was great and we had more drawer space than we could use. The coffeemaker with Starbuck's coffee pods was wonderful for coffee in the morning...Being able to eat at Coastal Kitchen for dinner was an extra plus. They did allow us to bring two other couples for dinner one night. Read entire member review >>
the carpet needed a shampoo - we stood on a wet towel on the rug ( to squeeze excess water from our bathing suits - they were wrapped up in th towel) and the part of the towel that made contact with th rug, became almost black. And the grout in the shower was moldy in parts. Read entire member review >>
We had 7644, a junior suite on seven deck. I was sceptical as to the value of upgrading versus a normal deluxe balcony but the room was tangibly larger and the balcony a very nice size too. The TV was quite old though and could do with a refresh. The little L’Occitane bottles in the bathroom and separate lounge area with sofa etc really made it seem a much more luxurious space even if the decoration could do with some colour and personality. I would go JS in future if the price difference was the same. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was roomy enough with lots of closet space, drawers & shelves for clotheshorse like me & my husband! Room attendant was very accommodating when we asked for additional hangers & RC robes. Had trouble with in-cabin safe & an attendant was in cabin within 10 minutes of call to fix it. Read entire member review >>
AWESOME!!! This cabin is located at the beginning of the hump, so we had the extended balcony with two loungers instead of one. There was plenty of room for our guests to come meet and mingle on embarkation day! Sal was fantastic, and took care of our every desire immediately! Read entire member review >>
Great room. Very spacious with large balcony overlooking the ocean. Only complaint is towards the end of the trip the bathroom became a little smelly, but I attribute this to the use of tanks. Read entire member review >>
Our mini-suite (room 10636) was nice and comfy - except for unexplained water leak by balcony window. Attendant worked hard as room was always clean and fresh ice put in refrig twice a day. Read entire member review >>
We were on a back to back, 5/7 and 5/14/ The room attendant never washed the sliding door window or the spilled material on the step outside. As a matter of fact, he never went outside and wiped the table or chairs. We spoke with the executive housekeeping officer at a luncheon. She indicated the vacuuming and all else is on a as needed basis. For the monies we spend on Junior suites and gratuities, I find this totally unacceptable. RCCL needs to revisit their training and policies. Also, smoking on balconies is a big problem. We complained twice about some one above us, and down the hall smoking. Can't even enjoy our balcony due to smokers!!!! Read entire member review >>
Cabin has a large Walk In closet, Bathroom is small only width of the tub. Tub is extra deep making getting into & out of shower difficult. No anti skid treads provided on tub basin making it a slip & fall hazard for guests. Water pressure was strong & water temperature was always instantly hot. Sink became problem when the stopper mechanism broke while trying to wash out some items. Interactive Television & programming is better than before. Reservations & other information is available and easily viewed as in a proper hotel. Less calls & phone messages from RC staff as in the past cruises. Bed comfortable & balcony furniture was upgraded from prior experiences. Read entire member review >>
Our room attendant "Salvano" was helpful beyond belief. He was so very helpful everyday and always had the answer to our every question, concern and room need.He is truly a credit to his craft and goes very much above and beyond. He was very confident with his answers and very reassuring.
The room was very clean and the view from the 14th floor balcony was breath taking. The closet, the bathroom and stateroom was well maintained by "Salvano". He was very pleasing and making these cute little animals out of towels which made my wife extremely happy and well amused. Read entire member review >>
Starboard side, amidships cabin with plenty of room for two, but would be crowded for four, adults. Large closet, full bath, room to stow luggage, and a comfortable balcony. Seating area furniture (sofa, chair) were a bit shopworn and looked like they needed a good cleaning. Small refrigerator for drinks but not much else. Bed can be made up as a king-size or separated into two twins, with only inches between them. Liked being on the upper deck, closer to pool deck and less crowded elevators.

Our cabin was spacious. Closet was large enough to dress. There were more drawers available than we needed. The balcony included a chaise lounge. The king bed was comfortable. I especially enjoy the bath tub and shower. The upgrade was appreciated greatly. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in room 8636 and my mother-in-law and her sister were in room 8640, which are both Jr Suites. We really liked the spaciousness of the rooms. The beds felt hard and the towels, linens, and furnishings were not as nice as Disney. I travel a lot for work and I felt that the Disney beds were as nice as any nice hotel. We made good use of our balcony during the early mornings and evenings. Our stateroom attendant was excellent. Read entire member review >>
Beautiful cabin. Lots of storage with a full tub in the bathroom and walk-in closet. The balcony accommodated two lounge chairs, two chairs and a small table. Quiet at night. The curtain separating the beds from the sofa were handy in the morning to block the light when one of us went out on the balcony and the other was sleeping. Read entire member review >>
Like being in a deluxe hotel suite only better because of the ample storage space. We were surprised at the roominess and the comfort. Having only cruised smaller ships, we were unprepared for the bathtub, the sitting area and the large balcony. Our steward, Romeo, kept everything tidy, clean and neat and created adorable towel animals to greet us every evening. We felt very much at home. Read entire member review >>
We loved the location of mid ship deck 6, near Boardwalk and Schooner Bar, one flight of steps to promenade, coffee and pizza and 2 flights up to central park. Quiet, walk in closet is wonderful, pullman is over the King bed which is in a strange place in my opinion. Could folds down to double bed. Stateroom attendant was awesome but left the bunk down the entire trip. I think he may have had leg issues as it looked like he had a limp so it may have been difficult for him to get the bunk up and out so it was easier for him to leave it down. Awesome balcony with 2 loungers. Priority boarding with suite Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean, very spacious, and very comfortable. The balcony had added space because of the suites location. Given the opportunity, I would make that choice again. Read entire member review >>
Absolutely amazing value! Thanks to recent changes in the Star Alliance classifications, there are not a pile of worthwhile perks that come with booking a Junior Suite. This room in particular enjoyed an outcropping of extra deck space that allowed us to have both a small table and two lawn chairs. Coupled with a soaker tub, walk-in closet, sitting area and expansive room it was just an incredible value.
This room is incredibly quiet and offered sun all day on the deck while traveling towards the Bahamas, St.Thomas & St. Marten. It's a great floor to be on to walk out to Central Park day or night ad enjoy a cup of coffee or cold one while reading a book. A couple shorts flights down and you're on the Promenade with lots to see and do. Many of the live entertainment shows also had "reserved" seating rows for those in the Sea or Star class and they were typically center row seats (another great plus).
One of the biggest perks of all was being able to dine in the Coastal Kitchen each evening. This restaurant is reserved for Sea Class and up and is probably one of the best kept secrets on the ship. We did eat at a couple of the finest al 'a carte restaurants on the ship (including Chops and Sorrento's), but they honestly were no better than the dinners we had every other night at the Coastal. The staff were absolutely incredible there offering top notch 5 start service! So genuine and caring, we were on first name basis with them all after the first night. The meals, presentation, and dining room ambience were second to none! Read entire member review >>
Absolutely luxurious, spacious and wonderful. Full walk in closet, huge bathroom, sitting area and large balcony. We were in bump out area so our balcony was exceptionally large. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was excellent with a walk-in closet, tub with shower, king sized bed and ocean view balcony. Nicely sized room and very clean with excellent service from our stateroom attendant. Read entire member review >>
Excellent, clean. Unable to hear any announcements. Last trip there were way too many on Freedom, this trip heard nothing in the cabin. How would we know if emergency. Don't want to be awakened every morning, just need emergency announcements. Read entire member review >>
In the past we have always had an interior room but on this cruise we decided to go with a Jr Suite since we were celebrating our anniversary. I think we spoiled ourselves to much on this trip. The room was great and our cabin steward Joel was very nice and took care of us. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was wonderful. Very spacious with plenty of storage space. The only complaint would be that Junior Suite guests are not treated the same as the other Suite guests. In a Junior Suite you are the lowest of the suite class and do not enjoy the same amenities that the bigger suites receive. We paid for three Junior suites for our family. We should have been equal to the other guests. RCCL needs to rethink this situation. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin. As always one more outlet would be nice as would something to hold the bath door open if you want. Highly recommend this cabin type - roomy with tons of storage.
Nice flat screen television but very limited channel selections. I know you are not supposed to spend that much time in your room but the choices were pretty much awful. Read entire member review >>
Amazing. Great room. We had a ton of room. The bed is ok. Great walk in closet with tons of hangers. Huge bathroom with full tub. Huge balcony with chairs and lounge chairs. Quiet area of the deck. Do hear a lot of noise on the balcony. As well, you can hear toilets flushing around the hall. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great! The balcony was large and we had a sitting area in our room. The bed was comfortable. It was a Jr Suite on the 12th floor but I don't remember the number. Our room attendant was awesome as usual. Read entire member review >>
cabin was great. Impressed with the balcony size. comfortably fit 3 adults. we had a tub/shower combo. water pressure in bathroom was excellent. One thing I did love was the room had tons of "cubby" space. LOL as a gal, I travel with an array of lotions, potions and creams there was ample storage to stick stuff in thereby freeing up sink space.
The pull out coach was "OK", not the best but then not the worst. well insulated and rarely heard a peep from outside. Read entire member review >>
Cabin, as always was good. Love the extra large balcony on the "hump", with 2 chairs, table & 2 lounges. Stateroom attendant was attentive and all we had to do was ask for something & we received. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin with lots of room, a large bath, large closet and a great balcony. I find it a little difficult to ever orient myself to front and back of the ship on the location of the theater and dining, etc. Many times I headed in the wrong direction from my cabin to go to things. First time in all my cruising I have had this problem. Read entire member review >>
The Junior Suite is a great way to step it up just a little. I always hated the closet space in the normal cabins and lack of hangars - the Junior Suite has a walk in closet with plenty of space for clothes and suitcases - no need for me to bring hangars from home! The surprise of the lounge chair on the balcony was my God send for my lack of sleep! Read entire member review >>
This room was too noisy for me because we were heard so much noise from the deck upstairs. I had heard the 14th floor might be noisy but we booked it because we wanted to be on the same floor as my parents who had an accessible Boardwalk Balcony room. For perspective, I am a very light sleeper, but even with earplugs there was noises around 3-4 am of deck chairs scraping (for which I was appreciative I was laying in bed and not working), and then starting around 7ish am I heard fellow passengers walking, talking and moving chairs. We do love Junior Suites because they provide a good amount of room for 2 people without being too crazy expensive over a regular balcony room if you hit the booking time right.

Starboard JS on Deck 7/ good location for walking everywhere from Deck 3-8. You cannot go from Port to Starboard on aft stairs and back, because of Boardwalk. Not a bother for us even tho we forgot a time or two. Great walk-in closet, bathtub, loungers on balcony,....would definitely take this cabin again! It made the cruise so much more enjoyable. Read entire member review >>
JS 10236 is a great room and we obtained a wonderful price by booking through our travel agency and C&A on the first available day. The price for the cabin escalated at least 50 percent over the next several months. The Oasis class JS is a wonderful secret. Walk-in closet, relatively large bathroom compared to balcony cabins, and the “extra” wide space made the cabin very comfortable. The bed was excellent. JS 10236 is on the “bump-out” and has an extra deep balcony with two chairs, two chaise lounges and a table. Our cabin attendant was exceptional. Linens, bathrobes and towels were showing their age and were “thin.” Read entire member review >>
Probably one of the most ideal rooms on the ship. Well located, close to everything. Quiet. Short walk to boardwalk and elevators. Bath is large, bed closer to bathroom and balcony is huge. Not a connecting room. Would definitely book this room again. Read entire member review >>
Great location and had about 40 sq ft extra being on the bump of the ship (120 sq ft versus 80 sq ft advertised). No life boats below which can obstruct a little bit especially below staterooms on lower decks. Walk in closet is very nice. You can change in there and there is tons of storage. Bathroom has a shower tub and is bigger than the standard. Water pressure was amazingly strong. Read entire member review >>
The Cabin was great except the smoking from the other nearby cabins on either side of me.the Bed has a foam rubber mattress topper that gave me back troubles after the 5th nightthe refrig did not work. we found all of the cans were warm and mentioned it to the attendant, they replaced the refrigerator, we found an open 1/2 empty can of soda left in the ref and had to tell them we did not open it so we would not get charged Read entire member review >>
Junior Suite (JS) I'll never get the Mrs back in a smaller cabin again. Walk in closet, bathtub and larger bathroom. We were never in each others way getting dressed for dinner. Read entire member review >>
We were in a handicaped junior suite on the 14th floor. Did not like the noise as the pool area was over our heads and you could hear scrapping of chairs and running all day long!!!!!! Read entire member review >>
Lovely balcony views over the side. The stateroom is a very comfortable size, and is easy to move about in. There is almost no noise from the outside, and we didn't feel motor vibrations, and very little motion of the ship either. The bathroom is a good size with a built in shower/tub combo. There is a nice-size walk-in closet, safe, and a little mini-bar in the room. It is located a quick walk around the corner from the elevators. Being on the 8th floor, it is very convenient to the restaurants in the Central Park, and to the restaurants and entertainment venues on other floors. Read entire member review >>
7636- Junior Suite- Wonderful cabin, with HUGE balcony, 2 chairs, 2 lounges and table. Not far from elevators. Bed very comfortable. Very quiet location, would definitely book again if we went on Oasis again. Read entire member review >>

I had a junior suite on the hump on deck 7(7236)... it was a very nice sized cabin. Was impressed by the walk in closet and nice sized bathroom. Bed was very comfortable. The tv had a decent selections of channels, always a plus Read entire member review >>
Great cabin. Lot's of closet space. Closet should have additional hooks on the walls. Beds very comfortable. Would prefer bed be positioned over by the balcony. Love to have the door open to listen to the ocean at night. having half and half in the room refrigerator would be great for coffee. Read entire member review >>
Our Junior Suite was a lovely room. We had a walk-in closet and lots of living space. There was a full tub in the bathroom. the balcony was large enough for us as well as guests. There could have been more chairs on the balcony for entertaining. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin with ample space. 2 lounge chairs, 2 regular chairs and a small table on the balcony. Only 2 electrical plugs obstructed by mirror so you can't plug in chargers or cell phones. Small tub. Walk in closet was very nice. Very quiet room. Read entire member review >>
They work so hard and every single one of them smiles and greets you when they pass you in the hallways. Our room stewards, Rocque and Dani, were terrific. Cleaning up after people must really stink, but they have a way of making you feel they're happy to do it and it's their pleasure. It really makes you feel welcome and adds to the enjoyment of the cruise. In the dining room, Dennis worked hard to get to know our names and tastes. It was a pleasure eating at his table. We chose anytime dining, but would try to make a reservation in his section in the am or the prior day. Cruise director, Richard Stacy, is a riot. That guy is definitely an asset to Oasis. He would have me in stitches every time I'd see him. Staff on the sports deck was awesome. We used the flowrider, the rock wall and the zipline and every time the staff was awesome. They genuinely seem like they want you to have a great time, despite your abilities or fitness level. There was no attitude like "Only skinny or young people welcome." They helped everyone. In fact, I noticed them going out of their way to help several disabled guests have a good experience. Read entire member review >>
I usually book a Balcony but this time I figure I'd see what a junior suite was like. The extra room and full bath for a few hundred more was well worth it. We didn't get the concierge service with the junior suite but thats okay didn't really need it. The location was midship very quiet and really smooth. Read entire member review >>
We had a guaranteed suite and were assigned cabin #14254, which is a handicap accessible junior suite (even though neither one of us needed any of the accessible parts). Room is slightly smaller than a grand suite, but has the same aount of furniture as a junior suite. Plenty of room for wheelchairs/scooters to manuever around. Bathroom was very large, with roll in shower and shower seat. Plenty of handrails around the bathroom. Not a lot of bathroom storage though. Took a while to figure out how to use the shower, but once we did, it was very nice. Ceiling spray and hand held shower. Door to balcony, when opened, produces ramp and balcony was larger but again had same amount of furniture as regular balcony - 2 chairs and small round table. Putting ramp back was a bit of a challenge, so we left it up and stepped over it. Can't see someone in wheelchair/scooter lowering ramp back down. Walk in closet was a bonus - lots of storage space, hangers. My only complaint is that, during the cruise, we met a couple and began to chat. Husband used a scooter and, in the course of conversation, discovered that they had called RCCL months before and asked to be placed on a list for a handicap JS. They kept calling and were told none was available. Obviously, that was incorrect as we got the room they should have had. In my opinion, these suites should not be part of the guarantee pool - give it to someone who can use what it was built for. But, that being said, it was a very nice, large room and we wer very comfortable in it. Read entire member review >>
The Jr. Suite was great. Great space, large balcony, nice bath room with a tub.
My husband thought it would have been great it the tub was a jetted tub. The beds are great and the plugs were at vanity level. My grandson loved playing out in the balcony. Hugh closet, I personally would not had designed it so large but made the bath larger. Read entire member review >>
We had a JS on the middle hump starboard side deck 8. Cabin was great. Love the walk on closet. Plenty of storage space. No noise from outside even though we were in the middle of ship. Same deck as Central Park where we spent a lot of time. Read entire member review >>
Very spacious, great balcony, hallway noisy at times children running back and forth. Felt balcony could have done with reclining chairs or stool so you could relax a bit better or even sunbathe. Read entire member review >>
Junior Suite had tons of room. Full bathroom.
Only problem is that people are allowed to smoke on balcony, so the person next to us was a chain smoker...it limited the time on our balcony. So, given the ship has sop many great public areas, I'll get an ocean view next time, and go from there. Read entire member review >>
Grand Suite - Limited closet space, but ample under-the-bed space. Lots of drawers. Nicely appointed bathroom, and very comfortable balcony with two lounge chairs w/ footrests and four chairs and two small tables.
Junior Suite - Nice walk-in closet as well as under-the-bed storage. Ample drawer space. Ample space for four. Our cabin even featured a pull-down berth. This might have made the suite a bit crowded. Disappointing balcony compared to the GS above. Only two chairs and one small table - NO lounge chairs even though there was room. Read entire member review >>
