Royal Caribbean Cabin Information Compilation -NO CABIN QUESTIONS POSTED HERE PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

Special thanks to Mysticks1 on the Celebrity Cruises forum for this idea. I would like to begin to assemble one for Royal Caribbean.

To the moderators, I would appreciate if we could make this a "sticky" at the top of the page for all to see.

Every week or two I will post a PDF for all the ships and cabin information compiled here.

Please, refrain from posting cabin questions here so this can purely be an informative thread, especially for those that are first time cruisers or seasoned cruisers looking for a great cabin.

The template is as follows:

Ship -

Deck -

Stateroom # -

Stateroom Category –

Starboard or Port Side -

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) –

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? -

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. –

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? -

Was wind a problem? -

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? -

 

Any other comments? -

Ship - Navigator of the Seas (NOTS)

Deck - 7

Stateroom # - 7688

Stateroom Category – E1

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) –Located at the very aft on the stern of the ship, it is a very quiet location with no hallway traffic.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Aft stern balconies give 180 degree panoramic views but are considered an obstructive view on the voyager and freedom class ships because of the superstructure on the rear of the ship. The higher the deck, the less obstructive. This deck 7 corner aft has a 6 foot side porthole that makes the covered balcony feel more open and also affords the only straight down aft water view on these classes of ships.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Deck 7 corner aft balconies are HUGE with 2 chaise lounges in addition to the standard 2 chairs and small table.

Was wind a problem? - No. Aft balconies are more sheltered from wind.

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - We have not had a soot problem on the Navigator.

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Aft balconies are HAUNTED :eek: so people should avoid booking them (save them for us instead :p).

Any other comments? - The cabin is a standard E1 (loveseat vs. sofa you would get in a D1). Some people say there is more motion being aft but we did not notice this. Some people don't like the infrastructure at the back of the ship. The balcony is not stepped but completely covered by deck 8 above. This keeps it dry in the event of rain but does limit the amout of sun it receives. There is some light pollution and sometimes noise from crew deck 5. It is a LONG walk to the elevators (which entitles you to TWO desserts!;):D).

Ship - Radiance

Deck - 10

Stateroom # - 1100

Stateroom Category – JS

Starboard or Port Side - Portside

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Mostly. There was a bit of noise from the Windjammer above, mainly as they were setting up in the morning.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Unbelievable! Views to portside and aft, no obstructions.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Huge, with two loungers, two chairs & small table and room to dance

Was wind a problem? - no

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - Only while in port - Radiance class now have diesel engines for use while docked or tendered, and there was a bit of soot as a result. When the ship was underway we didn't have any issues at all.

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - the cabin steward was uninspired, but they rotate.

 

Any other comments? - 1100 is one of my favorite cabins, 1602 being the other.

Ship - Freedom of the Seas

Deck - 6

Stateroom # - 6327

Stateroom Category – PR

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes and no. Quieter than I was led to believe a PR room on Deck 6 would be. We could hear muffled sound from the parades, but the window was double-paned and it was incredibly muffled.

 

The biggest noise we heard every night was Latin music from Bolero's two decks down - it comes directly up the Centrum. I'm a light sleeper and was worried about the noise, but it was incredibly muffled. It lasts from after dinner until around midnight or so. Throughout the late night, morning and afternoon, we never heard a peep from the promenade or neighboring cabins.

 

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No, thankfully!

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No balcony.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? -

Was wind a problem? -

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - If you want a great view of the parades from the cabin, this isn't the one for you. The view is of the Centrum and not the Promenade. We had a great view of the bridge in the Centrum and watched the parades set up - it was also fun to people-watch those crossing the bridge.

 

Any other comments? - This cabin is in a great location - great access to the rest of the ship from the aft staircase (2 rooms down). It's incredibly close to the aft staircase and the MDR, one flight up from Guest Relations, and with easy access to pretty much anywhere else in the ship. We loved being a 2-minute walk from the promenade.

 

It's not an end cabin--it's the middle of five--so you don't hear common area/staff noise. Perhaps the only better PR cabin we can think of would be the one directly across from 6327, since it wouldn't pick up Bolero's noise the same. However, we loved 6327 dearly -we have rebooked it for next year.

 

It is forward-facing. :)

 

Three pictures are attached:

#1: View of 6327 from bridge in front of Guest Relations.

#2: Picture of interior.

#3: View of parade set-up from 6327.

Ship - Serenade Of The Seas

Deck - 8

Stateroom # -8102

Stateroom Category – E1

Starboard or Port Side - Port

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes, except on the 70's night when the music from the Centrum was heard until 11PM. There was no noise from the elevator lobby at all.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Baclony is directly aft of the Elevator shaft, the view forward is obstructed by the hump.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Oversized, at least twice as large as the regular balconies.

Was wind a problem? - No

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - NA

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - I expected that having the hump right beside us and upwind that smoke from other balconies would be limited and maybe it was, but we still got "blow-back" from balconies aft and below us, maybe the air was swirling behind the hump.

 

Any other comments? - I would book this stateroom again. It was convenient to the centrum and stairs / elevators. No noise that bothered our sleep. The balcony size was great. No balcony neighbours to the right ( forward ).

Ship - Explorer of the Seas

Deck - 6

Stateroom # - 6362

Stateroom Category – D1

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Lots of banging the first afternoon at the front door. Told room steward. Noise stopped but started again last night. Realized it was right across the hall from the staff elevators and they were moving around luggage (duh?!). Heard some noise from the adjoining stateroom but nothing else

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes, unfortunately

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – On the explorer the balcony rooms are inside the hull of the ship. It's much more confined than on the newer ships. I really liked feeling a little more isolated while on my balcony. Still easy to see everything

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal ... 1 small table, 2 chairs

Was wind a problem? - not at all

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Nope, it was very nice

Stateroom Category – JS

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Mostly quiet, the only noise we heard was when we left our balcony door open and the deck 4 crew relaxation area was in party mode (sometimes to 3 am) With the balcony door closed, no noise was heard at all.

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Fantastic view, no obstructions. Can see more to starboard than port.

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Its haunted, best leave aft balconies for experienced travellers :p

 

Any other comments? - The CRT TV is large and tends to wander out of its cubby hole when in rough seas and squeak on its mounts (a strategically placed JS robe stops this problem)

Deck - 10

Stateroom # - 1078

Stateroom Category – JS

Starboard or Port Side - Starboard

 

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Deck 11 is pool deck and heard running during the day. We slept without a problem at night.

 

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no

 

 

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Look down and you see the lifeboats. Look straight out to the ocean. On our cruise we were docked in Nassau with an unobstructed view of the waterfront. We could see all of Coco Cay on our stop there.

 

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - My first balcony so I don't have a comparison

 

Was wind a problem? - Not at all....I wish there was more of a breeze. There was a sizable overhang.

 

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - n/a

 

Any specific problems with this cabin? - There is a tub but it's not normal sized. Anyone over 5 foot 8" will need to bend your knees to take a shower. There is really nothing "suite" about this room. It was tiny. Only reason to book it is for the balcony.
