Overall Room Condition Impressions
Spotless. Everything is in top shape and feels very clean
Would You Book This Same Cabin Again?
Absolutely! It's a great cabin.
Noise In Cabin
A little noise in the cabin -- you didn't notice it if you were not paying attention
Although it's very close to one of the main stairwells, there wasn't any noise in the room that you wouldn't get from any other room (ie. neighbors talking loudly in the hall). The balcony was great, but there was no noise isolation there (only visual). On the 1st night, one of the balcony dividers was rattling pretty bad, but a call to RCCL maintenance and they secured (within an hour) it and it didn't rattle the rest of the trip.
No noticable Odors
Temperature Control in Cabin
The temperature controls were VERY effective and you could easily maintain temperature
Never had to mess with the room temp. Left it on what RCCL had it set on when we got there and we were comfortable the whole trip.
WiFi Signal Strength in Cabin 6644
The WiFi signal strength was OK
The lighting was good -- nothing extraordinary
There is a little bit of wear and tear on the bathroom, but, it didn't feel dirty
View From The Cabin
Amazing view - I loved looking at the view every day
With the balcony being on a curve, it was very private. On this sailing, our view was always towards the ocean (opposite from the dock). When I opened the curtains in Haiti, my wife literally gasped at the view. Spent hours on the balcony just watching the waves roll by.
Drawers, Clothes and Luggage Storage
Very good. I was able to find a place for most things in the drawers and closet. I did have to use my suitcase to store some things
Technology, Comfort & Convenience
Needs serious improvement. Undersized flat panel TV and no iPod dock
Very Good. Chair or a couch with a coffee or side table
Your Comments & Observations (OPTIONAL QUESTION)
Overall, this was the best room that we have ever had cruising. The TV was small and no docking for devices, but I only turned the TV on twice (to check the bill) and we brought our own chargers for our phones - no big deal for us. Love the balcony - all our future bookings will be a balcony room. The location was great... Midship location with hardly any motion, relatively quiet, very close to a main staircase, one floor from the Promenade (5th floor), and wonderful private views off the balcony. The only real complaint I would have is the WiFi (ship wide). My wife was working on her thesis and this was a necessity. Set the devices to airplane mode, then connected to avoid crazy cell charges. Used it to communicate with the kids since we had it. Connectivity was frustrating to establish and once established, slow. We have Apple devices, so we used FaceTime twice and it worked ok. iMessage worked fine though we had to attempt to resend a couple of messages. Will not purchase on-board wifi again barring a critical need. I wouldn't hesitate a second to rebook this room.
