Royal Caribbean Cruise Ocean View Stateroom

21 December, 2009

With my limited experience in cruises (mainly overnight cruises from Destination A to B), I had expected nothing more than a pothole (for my view of the ocean) and a very cramped room (like the easyHotel room we had in London).  Thus, Royal Caribbean Legend of the Seas Ocean View Stateroom was quite a pleasant surprise for me. The room was spacious (154 square feet) with 2 twin beds being combined to form a queen-size bed.  The window provided a good view of the ocean and our room, being situated at the second deck (from the bottom) had a direct line of sight of anything that floats and swims in the seas (though we didn’t see anything interesting except yachts.

The toilet was small – about the same size as a toilet in an airplane but with an attached shower compartment.  Our “living room” is made up of a one-seater sofa, small TV and coffee table.  There is also a spacious wardrobe where you can hang your formal, sports, leisure wear.

The “minibar” is neatly laid out on the table – US$4.55 for a bottle of Evian water.  These took up most of the space of the dressing table – you will have to maneuver them around to make full use of the table.  A hairdryer is also provided.

Room

Perhaps the best and interesting part of our stateroom is the housekeeping service provided.  Housekeeping is carried out twice a day, usually in the late morning and evening (dinner-time) and you will find a pleasant surprise and a new companion or two when you return from a shore excursion or dinner.  Towels are folded in the shape of different animals and placed on your bed together with the Cruise Compass (the programme for the next day of your cruise).  We got a dog made of towels on our first night.  Trying to be funny, I made a request for a giraffe and monkey just before we left for our shore excursion the next day and guess what!? – We got an Elephant on our bed and a Monkey hanging over the ceiling.  We were pretty surprised that they did a monkey!  Guess a giraffe is too difficult to make.  🙂

Towels

There is even a programme that teaches guests how to make these towel animals.  Stay tuned for our post on this coming soon (video tutorial included) and see how we translate what we learned into practice.  🙂

    Hi,

    I booked a similar cruise back in June 2010, using an OCBC credit card promo. It’s a 6D5N Spices of Asia cruise, sailing from 28 Dec 2010 to 2 Jan 2011. The ports of call are Singapore-Phuket-Langkawi-Port Klang-Singapore. The cabin is a seaview stateroom for two pax, on deck 6.
    Now my husband tells me he cannot go, and I’m looking for a replacement. Is anyone interested? I’m willing to let go of this package at S$1100 per pax, i.e. S$2200 per couple. This all-in price includes GST, seaport taxes, gratuities etc.
    If you’re interested, please email me by this Friday (15 Oct) – [email protected]
    Thanks!

    How much was the original package? $1100 per pax seems quite ex – is it negotiable?

      Hi Dave, I checked the price 2 days ago on the Royal Caribbean web site and it is S$3064.24 in total. How about S$2110? At this price, I’ll be making zero profit. I’m trying to confirm the passenger change latest by next Tuesday when I need to pay up the balance. If you’re interested, can you email me directly at your email address? I’ll give you more details on the cost breakdown in my email. I don’t feel good leaving too many comments here on my cruise since this blog doesn’t belong to me. It’s very gracious of Zhiqiang and Tingyi to let me publish my comments here like that. Thanks, Zhiqiang and Tingyi! Appreciate your help. 🙂

    Hi,

    I want to ask about the room, is there any refrigerator in the room?

    Thanks,
