Serenade of the Seas (RCL) – Pros & Cons of Interior Stateroom 9077
I’ve been on the Allure of the Seas (Ocean View Stateroom 7510) and Liberty of the Seas (Interior Stateroom 8361) with Royal Caribbean so let’s see how an Interior Stateroom 9077 compares in stability, storage space, cabin amenities, the noise level and what I love about interior cabins.

Cruise Accommodations Aboard Serenade of the Seas
STABILITY Cabin 9077 is found midship on Deck 9 so there were days I didn’t even feel like the ship was moving.
STORAGE SPACE Used to packing light in the past (like on our Carry-On Only Packing List for a 7-Day Western Caribbean Cruise), I thought there was plenty of storage in our interior cabin.
CABIN AMENITIES We brought three pieces of luggage and two backpacks for this 11-night cruise. There’s room for four in this room with the bunk beds but we used one of them as extra storage space to hold our luggage. One piece of luggage we were able to slide under the bed.
NOISE BRING EAR PLUGS! Every evening there’s Deck 4, the Centrum, directly below that hosts entertainment every evening. Those bands love their volume levels way up. From 10:00pm to 12:30am, there’s an extra door at the end of the hallway, only steps away from the front door that they close to help muffle the decibels. Did that extra door help? Not really. There was more than one occasion where we had to call Guest Services to request them to close that door as it’s wasn’t automatically closed at 10. The most challenging times were days before a port day where you want a good night’s sleep to wake up extra early for an excursion. The cruise line should have installed more soundproofing for the several cabins nearest near any entertainment venues.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT INTERIOR CABINS Have you ever experienced Cave Darkness? Naps throughout the day are great in interior cabins!
