We enjoyed the balcony and were able to watch the glacier calve and watch dolphins and whales from it. Lots of storage space. Great shower. Slept well in the bed. Great service! Read entire member review >>
The cabin had a very tired appearance. Sorry we paid extra for a balcony that was rusty and the privacy partition did not prevent you from looking on to the next balcony. Towels were lower quality and honestly we had a difficult time even finding our room attendant. He introduced himself the first day and was never seen again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin had evidently had a leak the prior week and as a result it was necessary for them to run a very large and very noisy fan to dry the carpet. So, for the first day after boarding and part of the next morning, we really needed to get out of the cabin while the fan ran. They were on top of the problem, but we were not happy so I made sure to lodge a complaint with guest services. After everything was fixed, we were compensated with our choice of wine or champagne.

See comments in above review - cabin was tired and dated with old brown curtains and dated timber furniture - unpleasant bathroom odour was unable to be resolved despite several attempts by maintenance crew.
Plenty of storage/hanging space was a bonus and suitcases were stored under the bed. Read entire member review >>
The plumbing in the bathroom sounded as if the ship's horn was directly connected to it. Terrible noise all day long. Major flooding of floor from ?another cabin?. "Upgraded" to lower category cabin because of stinky flooded carpet. Read entire member review >>
Cabin stewards were wonderful and did everything they could to please but the cabin was tired, draws did not shut wardrobe doors opened in rough seas missing shelfs in the bathroom cabinet draughts through the balcony door and balcony rusty. Read entire member review >>
Scruffy looking cabin in need of a refurb. Bed a bit hard for my liking. No kettle for the first two weeks but after talking to a member of staff we were told that kettles were only in higher grade cabins! We then asked our cabin steward could he get one for us, which he did for our second two weeks. This improved things for us as the hot water for tea served by room service was supplied in coffee tinged pots and coffee flavoured tea is not something I want to remember! One morning the hot water was celery soup flavoured, yuk! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was reasonable size with balcony . The balcony was mucky and the glass was never cleaned . There was a leak from the bathroom into the sleeping area which caused a bad smell however it was repaired and a dehumidifier dried it out over 24 hours . We were given a bottle of wine in compensation but I think the carpet should have been cleaned as well . The steward was very obliging and worked hard - the shower was awful - very small with a plastic curtain that stuck to you and didn't stop the water from splashing on the floor .

It looks like it has a ultra small balcony on the deck plans, but it's actually larger than the balconies near us. It has a small obstruction in the top right corner, but we didn't let it bother us as we had more room instead. Cabin was fine, just a sewage smell in the bathroom just like any cabin on that ship :/ Read entire member review >>
Our room was a very comfortable size for two and well maintained. There was plenty of storage space in the closet and drawers. There were hangers with clips supplied to hang pants and skirts. The bed was quite comfortable. There was a musty smell noticed upon first entering our cabin bathroom, but after advising the room maintenance personnel about this it was taken care of quickly. Our cabin was perfectly situated. It was not a far walk to the elevators and the dining room and theater. Read entire member review >>
I really don't know what category of cabin we had, except it had an extended balcony. As I mentioned, the openness of this longer balcony was strange. There was a missing tile piece on the bathroom floor, the refrigerator was broken and the bed was very hard. However, the amount of storage space was surprising. The room was very clean and our attendant was great. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin second time in this one restricted view on balcony but not a problem as much larger balcony with room for. Sun lounger .Very quiet but a long walk as at the back of the ship Read entire member review >>
A spacious cabin and small bathroom. The cabin was outdated with brown wooden furniture. There was no exra drappery ie cushions and bed covering so the cabin was very bland . Our cabin steward did the absoulte minimun of changing the towels and making the bed. After 7 days our bed sheets had still not been changed so my husband stripped the bed as a hint that perhaps they should be. The cabin was covered in dust from day one and still after a week the same dust remained so we had to ask the steward to dust. We never found out our steward name as he made no introduction to us on boarding day. We put the lack of attention to detail in the cabin down to the Norovirus outbreak. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was your standard cabin for a Royal Caribbean...small but well organized. The plumbing under our sink was leaking. We notified our room attendant who called maintenance. Maintenance came and did nothing. My husband ended up fixing the sink. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom 8060 on deck 8 was great except for the partial obstruction of the cleaning platform just outside our balcony otherwise was it great. The views of the local communities, tour stops and Hubbard Glacier were great. The beds were comfortable but probably not good for tall plus passengers. Room amenities were nice with lots of closet space. It was a bit tight getting around the entertainment center and the beds but was tolerable. The stateroom was always clean and neat each day thanks to the attendant who paid close attention to our requirements. All in all a balcony stateroom is 100% over an inside one.

We chose a stateroom located at the "pointy" end of the ship on Deck 9 on Radiance of the Seas. We chose this location as it is quieter than midships or aft. And our choice was a wise one because it was indeed quiet, no foot traffic, away from the main hubs of ship's activities. If we are able to choose in the future, we will again choose this location.

7604 is located amidship on the starboard side iwo of the hump. The cabin was of reasonable size with adequate storage for two persons. The balcony has no obstructions or overhangs above. As it is on the curve of the hump it is slightly shaped with two chairs and a small table. The bathroom is a standard size with a shower curtain which leaks water on most occasions.
There was very little noise disturbance, the elevators are on the opposite side of the vessel and could not be heard. There is a slight noise nuisance from the centrum when there is an organised party night but this is minimal and caused us no great concern Read entire member review >>
Nice room at back of ship, quiet, good view from balcony, balcony was nice size. Great beds! Speaker in the room to hear announcements from the captain did not work, had to open the door to hear from the hall or turn on the TV to a certain station to hear. Very efficient safety meeting PRIOR to leaving the port of Vancouver. I thought it was great that they even checked attendance. Read entire member review >>
Balcony room with comfortable bed,large sofa, dressing table, and enough closet and storage space for all our clothes. Bathroom is very small, but adequate. Dressing table made the small bathroom more usable for two people.Balcony was large enough for two chairs and a small table.
Unfortunately, people around us smoked so balcony time had to limited when they were "enjoying" their cigarettes. Read entire member review >>
1010 was a great cabin on the port side. Close enough to the forward lifts but a long way from the aft......The cabin was clean and well maintained. It was great to have a balcony. The room was very quiet with minimal hall noise. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is right beside the stairs and lifts. But no particular noise or distraction. Occasionally you may hear a faint ding of the lift but only rarely and not distracting. Many people were jealous of the situ of this room and ease of access. Good internal space, both floor and closet. Small balcony. Read entire member review >>
I found the cabin to be spacious, but shower was a little small for a large fellow but you don't spend a long time in there.
There was plenty of space for clothing. The balcony for 7092 is a little larger and you have views to the front of the ship. Read entire member review >>
The extra large balcony is a real plus for this cabin. There is some loss of privacy because the divider becomes railing height about three feet from the rail and there is exposure to views from above but we didn't really find this to be a problem.
The location is close to the forward elevators/stairs and we didn't notice any extra noise from the theater. Read entire member review >>
Coat closet shower leaks all over the floor every time, mold in the bathroom vents, Loved looking out our balcony but we had the extended balcony & our smoking neighbor continually came to the far right corner of the bordering balcony where he could look directly into our state room OR if we had left the sliding glass door unlocked he could have come over the wall & right in our room! Not very private so I do suggest if your getting a balcony expecting exclusive privacy you better ask if you're getting an "extended balcony first" Read entire member review >>
OUR location  was the best on the ship in our opinion...large balcony, great view couldn't ask for better. Close to elevators, but quiet. Easy to find.
Middle of the ship. Quick access to main entertainment areas, if the elevators were full, it was easy to take the stairs without too much exertion. Balcony was fabulous, the roof of the floor above overhung and protected from rain and elements. Some noise from lobby bands but they didn't play after 10-11 pm. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom: We had stateroom 8138, a category E2 deluxe ocean view stateroom with balcony. It was 179 square feet with a 41 foot balcony. It was on the smaller side of the 4 balcony rooms we've traveled on with other cruise lines but to be fair it was more than adequate and was very comfortable. The bathroom was small and efficient with a corner shower. The bed in the room had rounded corners to make it easier to get around the bed but it worked well and was comfortable. The room was in very good shape for its age and we saw no real wear other than one sticky drawer. The closet space and built in desk/vanity was very good and allowed more than enough space and hangers which sometimes can be an issue.
The balcony was small but nice with two upright deck chairs and a small table. The balcony gave us a good view forward and aft. It was receded into the ship some so the room above us stuck out about 8 feet beyond the edge of our balcony and it wasn't a straight down the ship side view to the ocean as there was the roof to the promenade deck a few floors below that stuck out about 15 feet.

Great view, good location, close to Centrum and stairs but not too close. King bed in this cabin. Not enough drawer space for 2 adults and a 17 yr old. Closet held all our hanging items. Shower curtain sticks to body as you try to move about. Old style tv and the fridge did not keep our water/soda cold. Read entire member review >>
