Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas Balcony 9729 Room Tour
On September 16, 2018 my family of three took a week long cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. I booked the Oasis of the Seas Balcony 9729. I really do love booking the cruises myself so I can take time to get to know the balcony lay outs and choose a room I feel is suitable for what I desire during our vacation.
Not only did I end up with some great bonus perks for booking what they consider an interior balcony but I still had the view of the ocean while sailing, views of activity on the ship, and a great view of their Aqua Theatre.
The perks we received were rock climbing for a family of four, Johnny Rocket’s meal for up to four people, and the soda beverage package for two. We made out like bandits on the soda package and at lunch at Johnny Rocket’s but nixed using the rock climbing due to our son being four.
While Oasis of the Seas Balcony 9729 may seem tight at first, the sofa also pulls out to a bed which can easily fit two adults or two children, whichever you may prefer. We had plenty of storage space between the closet and the shelving. It was best to put two suitcases under the regular bed along with the stroller and the other suitcases in the closet.
The bathroom was much more spacious than other ones I have had on prior cruise ships with Royal Caribbean and other cruise lines. The shower of course is still slinky and tube style but you have to understand size restrictions when cruising. There was much more bathroom storage. They also do provide a hair dryer at the desk/vanity space outside of the bathroom.
While many have already asked me about noise, I am happy to report that the sliding doors are a pain to open at times but give great noise reduction to the activities outside. Most of the loud noises subside by 10PM but even if you like your daily naps (like myself), you will be pleased with how quiet it seems and may even sleep like a baby.
Oasis of the Seas Balcony 9729 is the next to last room in the hallway, so there is one door to the right, but their bed is on the opposite wall so neither bed is against the adjoining wall. The suite size balcony is across the hallway and their balcony is on the other side of the rock climbing wall. You will not see the wall on our side via the video but it is exactly the same as the one across the ship.
The bed was cozy, the room was clean, the space was adequate, and the stateroom attendant was amazing (Shout out to Tamara!) I would certainly book this particular room again. We did enjoy the added surprise of seeing what towel animals would make an appearance in our room! The kids really love this!
If you have any questions about the Oasis of the Seas Balcony 9729 or the ship itself, please feel free to comment below, ask questions, or let me know if you have sailed in this room!
