We had the corner Central Park balcony, actually a good thing, small walk to elevator and was shady during the day. The ones in the middle looked like a heat lamp and not as private. Water pressure was great, lots of storage shelves. You can check your account and planner on the tv. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is much smaller than other balcony cabins we have had on other ships. Tight spaces between the closet and side of the bed and the end of the bed and wall.
A huge sofa takes up a lot of space.
Least amount of storage of any cabin we have ever had on other ships. We had difficulty unpacking even though we only took carry on luggage.
On the balcony, a bridge blocks the view to the left but the view on the right is excellent. Read entire member review >>
We were in awe in how large our cabin was! There was so much storage space, that we did not use all of the shelves and closet space as was provided. The bathroom was a great size with a shower that had extremely great water pressure and temperatures no matter what time of day or night that we used it. Read entire member review >>
We were right at the forward side of the Central Park. No noise issues. The bed was next to the balcony. Layout was nice. Storage space was barely adequate for the two of us. I wonder how it would be with more people. Read entire member review >>
Well positioned on 10th Deck to leisurely sit on balcony and enjoy the ambiance of Central Park.
The room itself was most comfortable and well laid out. Our room enjoyment was enhanced by the personable and attentive room attendant. He kept our room immaculate at all times and quickly handled my wife's special requests. Always greeted us by name with a great smile and always inquiring about our well being.

Way too small, tiny bathroom, no daily ice. Didn't like the fact that the door opened into the corridor and anyone walking by could see right into the room but it was pretty soundproof Read entire member review >>
Not the best cabin choice. The view was mostly of the Central Park rooftops and the pool area on the next level up. It was noisy from the pool and music during the day. We were awakened every morning (I'm thinking about 6 AM) by the crew moving the pool chairs into place overhead. On a prior cruise on the Oasis, we had a midship 6th floor cabin with an ocean view balcony. It was a much better location for convenience and of course, the ocean view balcony was nicer..

Out of the 4 cruise lines I have been the Disney Cabin stood out for having a bath tub and I think a separate commode but what I can't understand is why they all only have 2 chairs on the balcony for a room for 3? Read entire member review >>
The cabin view was great for my first cruise. We didn't want to have the very beautiful sight of the water because of my wife's motion sickness, but it was an awesome consolation to have the Central Park view. The balcony made the room feel larger than it was which was a nice addition for the money. Plenty of natural light during the day with curtains that blocked the light if needed. Cabin room service by Kathyann was quick and courteous. At night we loved opening our balcony door and listening to the different styles of live music. Do not drink the "Evian" water in the fridge, it is not complimentary. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in Central Park on 10th floor (10603). The location is convenient , halfway between both sets of elevators but there is less privacy on the balcony and can get muggy often. However, great views of Central Park. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was nice, no better or worse than other ship's cabins. The balcony overlooking "Central Park" was very nice, overlooking all the activities there. we had joined our balconies for 4 adjacent cabins so we would gather there in the late afternoon for "happy hour" Read entire member review >>
Lovely cabin! We enjoyed the view right above the park cafe; noise wasn't bad at all and most days the breeze was decent. Don't make the mistake of turning off the master switch as that will also turn off your A/C (oops). Bed was comfortable; pillows were super flat but it wasn't a huge deal. The TV remote doesn't work from the bed which is probably the only annoyance I can find with the room. We would choose this room again in a heartbeat (though it's far from any elevator).

We enjoyed the inside balcony. We could sit on the balcony and enjoy the music being played in the park. I was worried that noise would be a problem. The door closed tight and the noise was minimal with the door closed. No music was played after about 10:00 pm. Never was an issue. Read entire member review >>
I heard some people complain about their cabins, but I did not have any. I had a lovely view of Central Park, enjoyed people watching and music from my balcony. When you close the sliding doors, you couldn't hear a thing - perfect. You can hear outside of your front door, people walking, talking, doors closing. So be prepared. We had a great attendant, his name was Hough. Gave us a lot of tips of where to go and eat. Read entire member review >>
The Central Park View Stateroom is everything that is advertised; spacious, clean, extremely pleasant and well appointed.
However, we personally did not find it worth the additional cost over an interior stateroom. We went out on the balcony perhaps twice (and rarely saw the balconies of other, similar staterooms occupied); there isn't much to see in central park aside from the for-fee restaurants, a few cruisers padding around, and some plants.
If you want a good simulation of what this balcony would be like, go to the atrium in a nearby hotel or a local shopping mall and sit and watch it for a few minutes. Far less engaging than a balcony stateroom overlooking the water.
Unless you are a huge fan of people watching, opt for the ocean balcony or the interior stateroom rather than this middle ground. Read entire member review >>
Loved the location of this cabin just above Chops Restaurant. Central Park balcony cabins are not for those who desire great privacy, but are perfect for those who enjoy live music from their balcony. Deck 12 affords great views, but without the chair scraping deck noise that comes with Deck 14 cabins. Read entire member review >>
Absolutely loved the view from here! When looking at the Boardwalk balcony rooms when we got on the ship, my first thought was that I was SO glad to be in Central Park! It was quiet and enjoyable, even though it's an interior balcony. Read entire member review >>
Not enough drawer space, sink too low in bathroom and bed too hard. Woke up each morning with back ache. The balcony was a waist of money too noisy and no privacy. Cabin needed updating and the location was very far from the elevators ( not a great location) Read entire member review >>
Here's a shout out to our terrific cabin attendant Idham, who worked on our stateroom, 12-255. Idham recognized us immediately and always knew us by name. He was quite friendly and he had a great sense of humor. 12-255 is a balcony stateroom overlooking the amazing Central Park section of the ship. It wasn't fancy but we had more than enough room and found it very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Noisy during the day, quiet at night. Very accessible. Wheel-in shower; transfer to drop seat. Door was difficult but not impossible to open from chair without help. Balcony door, however, was surprisingly easy and useful -- small ramp came up/down with the sliding open/closed of door. Balcony was large enough to comfortably use a wheelchair and still share the balcony with other(s). Read entire member review >>
10593/10591 Connecting Central Park balconies...much quieter than Boardwalk balconies...seemed to be configured to allow more maneuverability in CP balcony rather than Boardwalk. Great views/low noise. Central location. Read entire member review >>
Room was roomy enough for two people except for the storage space, it lacked drawers. Very quiet room which overlooked Central Park. Room was close enough to the elevators and accessible to all the venues. Read entire member review >>
