Photo tour of Category 2J Central Park View Balcony Stateroom on Harmony of the Seas

Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas has a lot to offer, including a number of staterooms.  Today, we will look at the category 2J Central Park View Balcony Stateroom, which will take you through the cabin to provide an idea of what to expect if you book this category stateroom.

On Harmony of the Seas, we reviewed stateroom 12629, which is located on Deck 12 nearly in the middle of the deck.  The room was very convenient since it was roughly equidistant to both elevator banks.

Entry to the room is by RFID scanner, which is above the door handle.

Like all staterooms on Harmony of the Seas, the light controls require a SeaPass card to be inserted into a slot near the entrance.

The decorations you see hanging from the ceiling and around the room are not a standard amenity to staterooms on Harmony of the Seas. They are an optional decoration package that you can purchase to celebrate a special event.

The bed is joined together but can be split apart if need be. There's a large, flat screen television across from it and two night stands on opposite sides of the bed. Access to the balcony is also on the other side of the bed.


The room also has a rather large sofa to sit on during the day.

The best feature of this stateroom is the extra large balcony, which provides a private space to enjoy the view of Central Park.  This balcony is roughly double that of a standard Central Park balcony room, but does not cost any more than any other Central Park room.  It is a bit of a secret among Royal Caribbean fans, and something we have shared on the blog before.

A 2J stateroom features a full bathroom, including a stand up shower.
