    I heard that they were removing coffee tables from the rooms and I am not sure why they would do that?  It's always a nice place to put the room service tray, play some cards or use as a place to put sea pass cards so they don't get lost.

    My son (16 and 5'11) slept on the sofa/bed for our Navi trip in March and fit.
    I am trying for people on this blog to start posting pictures of staterooms.  Just think if we include a picture of the sofa bed in sleep mode, how helpful it would be.  Just a thought.

    OK, here is my spiel, I was in Corporate Accounting for 12 years and the opportunity to do what I always wanted to presented itself.  I have been on the department now for 10 years and wouldn't give it up for the world.  I wished I had started earlier!!!!

    Oh trust me, they are very lucky children and awesome kids as well, very proud parents.  We were on the Harmony this past thanksgiving for the inaugural voyage.  Check out the pictures I just posted.

    The last photo isn't of a stateroom but people from the south will recognize these people.  They always come with us for Thanksgiving.  lol

    Actually, I think they are considered 2D and 5D which I think were the old Deluxe Stateroom category.  The new purple shades indicating new categories is hard to figure out.  
     
    These staterooms are only located on deck 7 forward and aft.  The preferred location would be forward because the aft ones have a bit of overhang in front of you which is a result from the venues located right below the aft ones.

    Hello All,
     
    I am not sure who the person I would direct this idea to so I hope the correct person reads this topic.  So I was thinking it would be nice to have an area that post pictures of staterooms located on all RCCL ships.  Pictures of staterooms help me with the following:
     
    If bed is by window or slider The configuration of the bathroom Does it have a shower curtain or enclosure If it has a balcony does it have an obstructed view or the view it provides A way to confirm the "symbols" RCCL provides on deck plans match with picture (upper berths, sofa bed,connecting door, the location of the connecting door) I know the web has another site dedicated to this but it would be nice to just search RCCL.
     
    I have attached some photos that I  submitted to the other web site for examples.   I say the more photos out on the world wide web the better.
     





     
    Any Thoughts?

    I much rather prefer to have the sofa by the slider vs the bed in balcony staterooms.  Is there anyway to figure this out on the Oasis class ships?  We are in 11300 on the Harmony on 5/20/2017.

    RBRSKI got a reaction from dejagatkins in What is the best holiday to spend on a Royal Caribbean cruise?   
    We did a Christmas, New Years Cruise on the Serenade in 2015 which was very memorable for our family.  We were really impressed one night the crew gathered in the centrum, handed out Christmas sing along books and it attracted a really good amount of people.  They also had fake snow falling from the top.  Then on New Years Eve they had many different venues around the ship with different themes and music .  We went to the Centrum for a balloon drop.  We even went to midnight Mass on Christmas Morning.
     
    Check out our Christmas tree!  My son had the idea of using old sea pass cards for ornaments.  
     
     
    We are on our 6th Annual Thanksgiving cruise.  We are hooked.   The chef's really have the traditional turkey day spread perfected.  Plus, when you are on the inaugural sailing of new ships(Harmony last year, Symphony 2018) it makes it that more special.

    And when people post pictures of staterooms specifically the threads should be consistent with wording to make it easy to search.  For Example,  
     
    Stateroom Photos "Ship Name" "Stateroom Number" "Category Class" "View"
     
    Stateroom Photos Navigator of the Seas 9270 Balcony Ocean 
     
    Stateroom Photos Harmony of the Seas 12305 Neighborhood Boardwalk
     
    Stateroom Photos Anthem of the Seas 7715 Interior Virtual 
     
    I pulled the information from FLEETWIDE RECATEGORIZATION GRID document.  I was thinking of adding "category description" but thought that was too much. Do you think people would embrace this idea?

    Not that I want to give RCCL any ideas but we should and have to look into the Crystal ball to see what's down the pipe line for more charges that we will incur on future cruises:
     
    Window Seats in the MDR First two towels no charge any additional $5 dollars per towel Your choice of one roll at dinner each additional $1.50 First ride on Flow Rider, Water Slide, Rock Climbing wall etc Free each additional $5.00 I know I am poking some fun at these topics but god help us if they ever impose them on us.

    So now revenue is generated for this service Staff and cruise line is making money or breaking even on Room Service Room service no longer hitting the bottom line for RCCL. NOW WE SHOULD SEE SOMETHING REDUCED IN PRICE OR SOMETHING THEY CHARGED FOR SHOULD BE FREE NOW.  
    Looking at the very top level of what the airlines are doing now, bringing back free food service on some flights.  
     
    Who knows what the right answer is?  Just my opinion.
