(I'm not positive this is a 6B!) Cabin was sufficient for a family of four as long as you pretty much just plan on sleeping there. It had a pull down bunk bed, and a roll away that was brought in. I was surprised the roll away was actually quite comfortable (I had worried it might be like an old sofa bed with pokey springs and bars you could feel through the mattress but it wasn't).

It was worth the extra price (we thought) to get the window and have a view rather than an interior room. It was nice to see the ocean when in the room.

We had requested the "King" bed for my husband and I and knew it would just be two twins put together, but thought maybe there would be some king bedding or a something that would fill the crack between the two and keep the beds from sliding apart or falling through if you ventured toward the middle, but no such luck. My husband and I each had twin size sheets and blankets, and middle void inhibited any cuddling, so we would have been better off with just the two twin configuration which gives more interior room space.

Bring a power strip! Only one outlet. Also bring a watch. There are no clocks, and if you rely on your cell phone for telling time be warned it will get all wonky when you get into international waters.

Ocean View room on the Main Deck was very nice. Plenty of closet/shelf space for us to unpack our bags. A nice perk were the goodies in the bathroom - no shampoo or conditioner, but a full-sized razor for my husband and some nice Pond's facial cleaners for me. Turn down service is always nice to come home to. We liked this room, wished the window could have been cleaner (sea spray, can't be avoided), but will opt for a balcony next cruise.  Read entire member review.

The air vents in the bathrooms of the staterooms needed to be cleaned out. They were clogged with dust and what appeared to be a little bit of mold. The stateroom windows needed to be cleaned on the outside. Bed linens were awesome!!! Bed and linens were very cozy and comfortable. Quiet location but close to elevators. Room steward was very creative with towel art, room was neat and clean upon entry, and service was impeccablly friendly. Room maintenance calls were great; followed up within 5 minutes. VERY CLEAN ship 27 hours a day. Stairway brass railing and windows always clean.  Read entire member review.

Easy vacation by YarnHappy
Great cabin for the money. Close to elevators but not too noisy. Note that many of these cabins M186 and surrounding are 3 or 4 sleeper cabins so there will be many families. We had families on both sides with young children and babies. However, we just turned the air on high which is loud like inside an airline cabin and drowned out noise (and I like freezing air conditions anyway) but if you don't like air conditioning, then this area may be too loud for you if you are traveling at a time when families will be traveling. We didn't feel too much exaggerated ship movement in this cabin.  Read entire member review.

Our Cabin was fine. The bed was comfortable and it was spacious enough for just us 2. Bathroom good size and clean. Wish they would at least have window cleaned when we depart but maybe not worth the effort.  Read entire member review.

GrandKids First Cruise by SummerTraveler
Cabin M217. Close to aft elevator and stairs. Conveniently located to get to Lido deck buffet and Carnivale Dining Room. Shower has adjustable height for handheld shower head for kids to take a shower. A little cramped with king bed, cot, and pull down bunk configuration for 4 people. Quiet location. Big window.  Read entire member review.

The cabin was a little smaller then I expected, the shower was great, the water pressure was really good!  Read entire member review.
M238
Great "secret passage" to the adults only Serenity deck on 9 aft. Up two floors, turn down the hallway that heads aft on deck 7, turn right and there are stairs that lead up to the deck. Avoids the elevators and the loudness of the public areas! Also, it is relatively quiet in 5 (Main) aft.  Read entire member review.

M256

Located at the very end of Main Deck, it was extremely quiet as we had no neighbors below us or one one side. Ocean view. Plenty of closet space. Everything worked. Air conditioning did a good job keeping us comfortable. Would have liked a mini fridge or access to an ice machine. Nice cabin overall.

Next to noisy storage room, but in area that was close to elevators and room was big, clean and otherwise very nice.  Read entire member review.
R194
We had the connecting cabin R196 as well. Standard OV cabins, but the TV in R194 is bolted to the same wall as the headboard of the bed. The only way to see the TV is to lie at the foot of the bed.  Read entire member review.
R53
The showers had body wash and shampoo installed in them so that was totally a new experience and well received by me. Things are smaller in a cabin like the ocean view I had on the Riviera deck. R53 to be exact. I loved it there, right by the elevators and it was convenient on port days. I was hot or warm more often than not. Kandace did not like that part at all. We did contact our room steward and he said he would have someone look at it. Never heard another word about it and it never got any cooler. I am pretty sure the ac was working correctly however, just not cool enough for us. It did get cramped at times and hard to move around in the bathroom area.  Read entire member review.
R77
Connecting oceanview cabins R77 & R81 are in a great mid-ship location, close to the front and mid elevators. Quiet location and plenty of storage!  Read entire member review.

The cabin was very nice but we wish we could have had a balcony.  Read entire member review.
m52
M52: small oceanview room. 3 large closets and plenty of under-bed storage. large desktop and 4 small drawers to stash extras. soft fluffy bed covers. mattresses were firm. pullmans appeared stable. Set up for the pullmans was not good. Not much space under pullman for the people sleeping in the regular beds. very claustrophobic. we ended up sleeping the opposite way on the bed - feet against wall. Very quiet room except when pulling into port and when anchor dropped. Bathroom was very small but OK for 1 person at a time. shower water drain was connected to bathroom drain on floor so water overflowed onto the bathroom floor. very annoying. There was virtually no storage in the bathroom. Shower pressure was excellent and had a detachable shower head with hose. It had a dispenser for shampoo and body wash. No conditioner. The shampoo and gel were fine. the soap was drying though.  Read entire member review.
