Royal's solo balcony cabins


 Share

Recommended Posts

I see that all Quantum ships have a few solo balcony cabins.  Can someone give me some insight on these cabins?  Size, worth the price for square footage (or lack thereof), location, price, etc.

 

Does anyone know the cabin numbers for Anthem?

 

This is what I found on CC:  "Quantum of the Seas, Ovation of the Seas, Anthem of the Seas and Harmony of the Seas: All of Royal Caribbean's Quantum-class ships feature 28 dedicated studio cabins for travelers traveling solo. Options range from so-called "virtual balcony" cabins (which feature 80-inch floor-to-ceiling LED display screens that project live images from outside the ship), as well as rooms with actual 55-square-foot balconies. All cabin interiors range in size from 101 to 119 square feet."

 

Thanks for your help.

That's really up to you.  There are quite a few videos on YouTube touring these cabins.

Location can be answered by looking at the deck plans.  They're on deck 6 and 7, just aft of the aft elevators.  The price question can be answered by finding one that's available for a cruise.  I think it's not much difference in cost than a full-supplement standard balcony.

You’ll find videos of the Studio Balcony cabins on, among other YouTube channels, La Lido Loca (Spectrum version) and the Very Unofficial Travel Guide (Anthem version). There are only 12 Studio Balcony cabins per Quantum-class ship and will appear as an option with the other balcony types only if you select 1 passenger when booking. It’s cabin category 2F and if it doesn’t appear, it’s sold out. Deck 7 cabins have an unobstructed view and deck 6 ones are just above the lifeboats. The cabins are on the aft side of the midship hump, so the ones with the lowest numbers have bigger slanted balconies. Pricing just depends on ship, itinerary, and demand. I’ve seen them priced higher than a regular balcony!
 

There are 16 Studio Interiors (category 2W) on each Quantum-class ship except Odyssey. I believe all of them are grouped with a balcony and junior suite, forming a nice family/group setup with a short shared hallway. A travel agency has posted a video tour of a Studio Interior on Anthem; a link might get deleted so just search “studio interior stateroom anthem” in YouTube to find it. You’ll find 2W on other Royal ship classes - there are a few on Voyager-class and Radiance-class ships, but I don’t think any Oasis-class ships offer any solo cabins.

I don't think that's the case with all of them.  I stayed in 11230 on Anthem and I believe 11232 was the only other room accessible through our hallway/vestibule.

I had one of the SB for 12 nights on the Quantum.  One of the ones with the largest balconies.  I think those are the XX48 cabins.  I could have lived on that balcony.  The rooms are small, but manageable.  The only seating other than the bed is a backless (I think, might have had a very low back) stool.  Storage is minimal, but I made it work for 12 nights and I don't pack light.  Bathroom was the same as any other standard cabin.
