Very quiet, kept immaculate by steward - who we hardly ever saw! One minor hiccup, the loo wouldn't stop flushing one morning. Quick phone call and all resolved within 10 minutes.
Why don't they varnish the hand rails on the balconies? Read entire member review >>
Very pleasant and always kept clean. Nice balcony. Kettle and cups supplied and tea bags no problem. Coffee sachets ... forget it! Shower water bubbling up into bathroom, but quickly fixed when mentioned to cabin steward. No nightly turn down service for bed clothing ... already done when bed made in the mornings. Adequate storage space. Had to ask for hair shampoo, conditioner and body lotion as these items are not supplied automatically ... on only request. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was very roomy, well maintained and serviced at least twice per day. the shower stall had a sliding glass door, the bed very comfortable, the sofa could seat 3 people.
Everything we requested either of the cabin staff or room service was provided with efficiency and without delay.
The TV was a flat screen. A kettle and cups were provided to make tea.
Hints: Take an adapter plug if travelling from Oz as it is suited to the US market.
Also take shampoo and conditioner the alternative is using their dispenser in the shower that contains shampoo/conditioner in one. Read entire member review >>
We were allocated a D2 cabin on deck 10, right under the Windjammer. I had read here on CC that these cabins might be noisy so we picked up some of those small foam ear plugs at the hardware store just in case. We never needed them! I wouldn’t hesitate to have this cabin again. We had the bed by the window and a full sized couch. The ship has been revitalised since we last sailed on her so had new carpets, linens and drapes in a blue colour scheme– all looking great! Our steward was Willy and he was fantastic, he bought us an ice bucket right away for our sail away champagne and also bought us an eggcrate for the bed the second day after we discovered that the bed was REALLY hard. That is my only complaint about the cabin, I could not have slept on that bed without an eggcrate so if you have a bad back request one in advance or straight away after you board.

Nice size cabin, perfect mid-ship location, bathroom with glass doors is a nice upgrade, plenty of storage room, the most comfortable sheets in the world. Our cabin steward, Glenn, could anticipate our every need and was one of the best we have ever had. Read entire member review >>
loved our room plenty of space for us, however, we never unpack into the wardrobes.. too used to living out of suitcases when we travelif you have a preference for shampoos and soap, take your own, as these are not normally included in this type of room..there is no self service laundry on board, so we washed in the sink using a liquid detergent, or the soap for the little things.balcony was adequate in space for 2, but not a lot of legroom ( mu husband is 6'1" ) and when he stretched out he found it easier to put his feet up on the railing.the bed was comfy, and kept clean by the stewards..

We were in Cabin 9278 Deck Starboard side Midships.Superior Ocean View with Balcony
Room and Balcony are very spacious compared to some ships i have been on.
Plenty of storage space, interactive TV, 3 seat er lounge Hair Dryer is in cabin.
Lots of little storage areas behind mirrors which is good
Balcony has a small table and 2 chairs
The 1 an only issue is i believe the shower recess is a bit small and is circular with sliding closing doors, Like a Capsule Read entire member review >>
A nice cabin with unrestricted views. It was very quiet, we didnt hear any outside noise at all. Handy to the lifts and well appointed. The ensuite was clean and adequate for our needs. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8608. The only negative is it was an interconnecting cabin with 8606 which we did not request. Because of the interconnecting door we only had 1 lounge chair not a 2 seater sofa which meant we could not both sit on the sofa to watch tv one had to sit on the bed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7662 was a Superior balcony cabin on deck 7 at the aft of the ship.
Pleant of storage space, room good size and so was the balcony- easy get 4 people on it.
Bathroom was good, shampoo and conditioner in shower which was very good but that is all that is supplied.
Towels etc are very good quality.
There was flat screen TV with movies and the usual stuff ad you could also check you room account on the screen.
Nice beds and plenty of pillows, Kettle and tea is supplied but if you want coffee with out getting via room service take some with you.
Room service is free but not between midnight and 5 am which is fair enough.
Hair dryer in draw which was pretty good. 2 power point options 1 x 110 and 1 x 220 volt everything worked well Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a D2 category on deck 9 - balcony. The room was big and the bed was huge. Liked having doors on the shower instead of a curtain. A nice touch to have tea making facility in room, but on this occasion there wasn't any coffee sachets, only black or green tea. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin 7334 was actually very nice. Also nice spacious balcony for 2 people. The furniture & carpet in the cabin was dated and a little stained, but The Voyager of the Seas is an old ship. Our cabin steward was very friendly and helpful. Read entire member review >>
The bathroom was small, it was awkward for both of you to be in at the same time. We used to enjoy going on the balcony. We were close to the lifts which were good & not a bit noisy. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was standard size. Closet was a little small, but shelves inside closet were great for t-shirts, etc. Bed was very comfortable. The balcony was really outstanding. Due to being a little deeper than the E category balconies, it offered shelter even during high winds. I sat out there every morning and afternoon, and some evenings. The location was great, just a few doors down from the elevators but with no noise from them. It was just steps from the library and Internet center. Read entire member review >>
On about the third day of the cruise my back was aching in the morning, so I pulled the bottom sheet back and found that two mattress pads had been folded over and then a third mattress pad had been put over the top of the other two mattress pads and the sheet over the mattress pad. At the same time my wife said look at my arms, I have five bites on one arm and three bites on the other arm. We went to the purser office and they said they would look into it and advise us of the results. A service man came and started to poke around by the bed head board and we left the cabin. About three hours later we came back to the cabin, new MATTRESSES were now on the bed. No one from the purser's offices ever called to say what they found; but obviously, it was BED BUGS.
The other aspects of the cabin worth mentioning is the balcony, the carpet was wore out and filthy. Rusty metal was showing. The glass by the rail was never washed once during the cruise. The teak rail was raw wood, no varnish. There were NO amenities in the bathroom, no hand lotion, body lotion, shampoo, or shower cap, just one bar of soap.
With the new mattress, the bed was now comfortable; however, since the DUST mites were stirred up and with the bite problem and the mattress problem, I ended up in the Doctor's office on the ship with a bacterial infection and the doctor visit and medicine cost me $156.40.

Great balcony, good views, adequate closet space, lots of little cubbies to store toiletries in the main cabin area, loud inside the room if people are out on balconies talking at night, fairly long walk from elevator. You'll find the hair dryer in a drawer in the main cabin - not in the bathroom as you might expect! Read entire member review >>
Ample space, fair sized balcony although would have liked a sun-bed for the day at sea. Bed very comfortable and a fair size. Ample wardrobe space. The bathroom had a shower but no bath but this was acceptable for us. Quiet location. Think that some people were smoking on their balcony even though it was a "No Smoking" area as we could smell it at times but it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Read entire member review >>
I was in a D2 balcony room on the 8th floor. One of the "hump" rooms. The room was near the stairway but the only time we heard noise was people going to/from the stairs. It didn't bother us one bit because people didn't generally stand in the hall socializing. We were also near the library so it was quiet and convenient when we needed to use the internet. The bathroom was small but not as small as I was expecting and the water pressure in the shower was strong. The bed was comfortable and seemed larger than a queen-size. There was ample storage in the room/vanity area for clothes and personal items. The room could use some updates but it was fine overall. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony room (D2). It was pretty small, but fine for 2 people. There was plenty of storage and good closet space. The balcony was small, but adequate. The shower was tiny, but it worked! The only problem we had was the temperature. We like it cold, but didn't feel that the a/c worked very well. We also sleep with our ceiling fan on and the room got stuffy. Thank goodness we had a balcony because we slept with the door open! Next time I'm taking a small fan. Read entire member review >>
Standard balcony cabin.
Great location, near stairs and lifts, but far enough away to miss the noise.
Plenty of closet space.
Just right for two people.
Suitcases would fit under the bed. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was exactly what we wanted. I really liked the rounded shower design with real sliding doors rather than the common clingy curtain. Seems like the oval glass coffee table could be a potential hazard when cabin is dark. (Ouch!) Other than that I can't think of anything I'd change, other than the limited news stations on the TV. Fox? Yuck! CNN International OK, but would like USA CNN and/or MSNBC too. Read entire member review >>
We had booked a balcony guarantee so were happy with our allocation. The cabin was very spacious with lots of storage space and coat hangers. The location was fine with easy access to the cafe promenade. The walk to the back of the ship for dinner was good exercise. It was very quiet and peaceful out on the balcony Read entire member review >>
