    Promenade rooms on Royal caribbean

    Thinking of booking rooms on Royal promenade on next Royal Caribbean cruise. Think it is cheaper than ocean view but slightly more than inside cabin and thinking better option than like living in a cave for a week. Anyone who has previously cruised with/booked this type of room before and your feedback? Thanks.

    Hi and welcome to cruiselinefans.com

    Sorry but I can't help with your question, although I don't see the problem with an inside cabin.

    I am sure one of our other members will be able to offer you some advice.

    If your concern is living is a cave then the Promenade view room may be a good option for you. You do get a view of the activity going on. The one thing to keep in mind is that as you can see out, others can see in from both the promenade and from cabins on the other side.

    I love the promenade view cabins and would pay the small upgrade charge from inside any day.

    I think the promenade cabins would be a fun thing to do if I could get one in a very good location. I'd want to be right in the middle where all of the action is!

    Someone I met on the ship took me up to see hers and I liked it. If I weren't getting a balcony, that's what I'd book for sure.

    We purposefully booked a promenade cabin on the Liberty of the Seas just so we could witness firsthand the experience and pass the information along to our clients.

    We had friends in an inside cabin and ours was just slightly larger than theirs, plus with the bay window it made it seem even bigger yet. I loved sitting in the bay window and watching people while I was working on my laptop taking care of business.

    We were most concerned about the noise, as we were on the first level above the promenade, and it was never an issue. The only time we heard noise was when the band was playing, which was not very late at night, so we were never affected by noise.

    The only thing you have to be aware of is that people across the promenade can look directly into your window, so you have to make sure the curtains are closed to insure privacy.

    I always look at it this way; if you don't spend hardly any time in your cabin, then get an inside cabin. If you spend some time in your cabin, get an oceanview or a promenade. And if you spend alot of time in your cabin, then get a balcony. Of course, to me it's more of a cost versus benefit, but then again, I love my balcony cabin!

    We love a balcony cabin but when we were on the Mariner of the Seas I went into one of these rooms when the cabins were being cleaned the last morning aboard. Very nice. As others have mentioned, yes you can see in.
