We were in an inside cabin that overlooked the promenade. We prefer the inside cabins as we don't spend a lot of time in the room. This one was excellent and the large window with sofa overlooking the promenade mad the room feel spacious. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, 9373 an aft, interior, was acceptable. The ship as a whole is worn and in need of updating and this was reflected in the cabin. Towels and linens were clean, unstained and comfortable. I did request additional pillows as our were a little flat. We cannot echo any complaint about the mattress in our cabin(I had read some very negative comments). Toilet paper is not Charmin. Our cabin steward did a marvelous job and his service was wonderful. Read entire member review >>
We decided to book an interior room because we did not plan on being in the room and paying the higher price for a larger room and window. The room was actually bigger than I thought it would be and worked well for sleeping/showering/changing. It was positioned in the middle of the boat which I liked so we could pick either elevator.

Our interior cabin on Deck 8 aft was fine, probably one of the quietest rooms I've ever had on a cruise. My husband complained about a urine smell in our room for the whole week, but I didn't notice it. The sheets on our bed were never changed throughout the duration of the cruise. Perhaps this was a water conservation measure? On certain nights, our room steward would collect one of our towels, but not provide a replacement until the next morning. Read entire member review >>
Cabin - The cabins are small on this ship. We had an interior interior room (yes I meant to say it twice). Look at the floor plan for 8451 and you'll see what I mean! With the beds pushed together neither of us could easily walk around to the side of the bed and we typically crawled in and out from the foot of the bed. Not a problem until you twist your ankle! The shower was very even smaller than other cruise ships (I never thought that was possible), but the sliding door was an improvement over a shower curtain. The TV's have been upgraded to about a 32 inch HDTV but most of the programming was not HD and only a few channels in English. I was surprised that the sports bar only had the same 2 sports channels available in your room. I couldn't watch the NBA playoffs anywhere when they were on TNT. We had to ask for ice in the room and I should have asked for a bigger glass. Storage space also was less than Carnival, but the closet was better organized for storage. The room was very quiet as the hall was not a pass through to anywhere. Also, you can control the volume of the announcements. On some Carnival ships we were awakened every morning by a very loud cruise director. I'm not sure if they made many announcements as we had ours turned down completely. In fact, we slept to 9:30 the first morning. Read entire member review >>
I'm not sure what my cabin category was, but we had these two inside cabins.
We always get inside cabins it saves us a lot of money and with 5 or 6 people cruising I choose to put the money saved into awesome excursions.
I believe the AOS cabins need to be refreshed. New carpet and curtains are in order. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7469 - Ample wardrobe & dressing table space. Minibar fridge crammed full with expensive drinks & snacks so a minute amount of space for own items. Two seat sofa & glass coffee table. Cabin really too small for beds as a double. Very quiet inside cabin a short stroll to library & lifts at aft of ship. Very little movement of ship here but sea conditions were very good anyway. Hairdryer supplied also TV with some free channels & some pay per view (not tested). Ice bucket, tongs & 2 glasses supplied on a tray. 3 american power points - 2 x 120v & 1 x 240Vplus a further shaver point in bathroom.Bathroom furniture in need of some refurb but ample (snug) space with plenty of storage. Toilet, wash basin & semi circular shower with sliding doors. Suitcases fit under beds or on floor in wardrobe. Read entire member review >>
