Default Cabin size

Have reserved inside stateroom, deck 9 Mariner of the Seas. Have heard several people say the rooms are small. Would like to hear more opinions of this. We won't be in the room that much.

Size isn't everything! How many square feet do you occupy? I am 5'8 and 187. I figure I take up about 12 SF. Hopefully my cabinmate takes up less... That leaves plenty of room even when the cabin is 160 SF or so. Actually, that is just one dimensional floor space. The ceiling is about 8 FT so you really have 1280 SF. If you are no in there much nayway, I am sure you will be fine. It has always worked for me. Proximity to the stairs and pooldeck is more important.

This is all the room you really need...

I think as long as you know what to expect and plan accordingly, it will be fine. We have booked everything from a closet to an upcoming "Owner's Suite" and they all suited our purpose for each individual trip. If your intent was to save $ then by all means enjoy when and where you get to spend the $ you saved. Just my 2 pennies, Robbie

Just don't expect a spacious duplex, the cabins are basically your place to sleep and shower and they fit the bill perfectly.

I've found the cabin size on both Voyager and Freedom classes to be adequate in size. The older Royal Caribbean ships have much smaller cabins.

At 158 sf, they are cozy, but certainly bigger and better laid out than many ships afloat. As you've read, it really depends on your particular needs for that cruise.

I think you'll find it very adequate as the beds are easy to walk around, they have a small sitting sofa, and being up on Deck 9, you're very close to the daytime activities and breakfast!!

Here's a link to RCI, check it out: http://www.royalcaribbean.com/findac...=R&deckCode=09

Have fun, Steve
