- My family sailed on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas for a week in December.
- Our group of 3 stayed in a 150 square foot Inside Stateroom, the cheapest and smallest option for us.
- With a double bed, a sofa bed and no windows, the cabin was cozy and functional.
My family of 3 spent a week on Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas, one of the largest cruise ships in the world.
The Symphony of the Seas has 2,759 staterooms and can accommodate 6,680 passengers.
Our 150 square foot Inside Stateroom was the smallest and cheapest option for us. I paid about 1,768 dollars (1,656 euros) for 2 adults and a child.
The main bed can be configured as a double bed or 2 single beds.
I like to have my mobile close at night, so I was surprised to see only one power socket by the bed.
Our cabin seemed modest, but functional, with 2 tall cabinets that helped us avoid clutter.
My suitcase fit under the bed and I kept it there for the entire trip.
The room also had a desk, a mini-bar, and a chest of drawers that provided additional storage.
The sockets in the desk area had different types of pins.
The cabin also had a simple sofa.
We made it into a small bed for our 9 year old, but I wouldn’t recommend it for an adult.
We kept the sofa open, so we squeezed into bed to watch TV.
Like the rest of the cabin, the bathroom was practical in design but tiny.
I was surprised at the amount of space to prop things up, which was great for getting ready.
Luckily I brought my own toiletries as the dispenser in the shower only had a mix of shampoo and body wash.
There were no windows, and I found the art and decor lackluster.
Seating areas were limited so we had room service breakfast at the desk.
I spent most of my time in the common areas, like the Boardwalk, which was close to our room.
