Cabin 5262. aft port side. Cabin was comfortable. There was lots of vibration. Felt like the shaft needs dry dock. loved the balcony. close to laundry. Long walk to camp carnival, and theatres. short walk and ride to MDR and Lido. Quiet hallway. Closets were adequate, we are not big packers.  Read entire member review.
Excellent central location, close to atrium elevators - but no noise. Cabin steward storage was across the hall, so sometimes there were carts and laundy bags in the hallway next to this cabin.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was mid-ship. Although it was near the elevators, it was completely quite. Never heard the elevators or the noise from the bars below. Two nights at sea were slightly rough but our cabin only slightly swayed. Very enjoyable cabin.  Read entire member review.

cabin 6210 -nice location-decent private balcony with great views-couch in room  Read entire member review.
Great mid-ship location - we had extended balcony last cruise but it's not worth the extra price.  Read entire member review.
We were in cabin 6223 in the 8D balcony category, which was on the starboard side right near the walkway to the elevator. It turned out to be a very quiet and convenient location!! We were at first concerned but it turned out to be a spot we would book again!! We enjoyed being able to watch the land as we sailed north.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 7132 has an adjoining door to cabin 7136. They accommodate either 2 or 3 passengers each, neither had a bunk but each one had a couch. We each had just one person to a cabin. If you are not booking both, there will be some noise heard through the adjoining door. Because this cabin is close to the front of the ship, there is a lot of motion "up and down" plus "side to side." Very quiet part of the ship. We also requested that Guest Services have the balcony divider opened. This was wonderful. Note that the divider swings to the right and is bolted to the railing so it cuts off a bit of the view you see from cabin 7132.  Read entire member review.

Excellent cabin, would book this one if we travel on Spirit again. It is unusual in that it and 7155 are two cabins ‘back’ or ‘indented’ from the rows of balcony rooms next to them. In our case, this meant there was an extra balcony wall belonging to 7151 which gave us a great wind break and more privacy on that side. The cabin was bright and spacious. There are a number of reviews already on the layout of this type of cabin so I will not go into it. The beds were the best we have had on a cruise ship, just the right amount of firmness, no sagging, with two decent square pillows and what appeared to be feather filled doonas. We took the advice from others and took along an occy strap and it worked a treat to keep the door open. We had a deck chair, an adjustable chair which turned into a ‘banana lounge’ style lie down, and a small table. Our cabin was attended morning and night (and numerous times during the day!) and was always spotless (we are not the type to leave clothes lying around, unmade beds, or pile up food and drink containers etc so keeping it clean and tidy was pretty easy for our steward).

Our cabin was very comfortable with more than enough closet space. Hallway was quiet. Overall it was a great location  Read entire member review.
We were in cabin 7317, starboard side aft. Could smell the smoke from the starboard side aft smokers.  Read entire member review.

Appropriate decor and facilities without being too elaborate. The cabin offered enough room and facilities although the TV is small and the remote did not work properly. Cabin service was exemplary - the room was always tidy and clean. Beds were comfortable, but I hate air-conditioning. Try propping the door open to stop the air-cond.The standard balcony was a little small but servicable.

Great for access to the fantail pool, Lido deck and formal dining. If you wanted to go ashore or go to any of the entertainment venues they were far away. No big deal but just something to keep in mind.  Read entire member review.
Alaska is Awesome! by cruzlover64
I thought the room was great - I was expecting a bunk and was pleasantly surprised by the soda turned bed. There was plenty of storage and we were not constantly tripping over each other and our belongings as we have had on previous cruise. A little surprise by the poor design of balcony dividing door - I would have thought they would have found a way to swing the divider up rather than to the side - having it swing up would allow an unobstructed view from both cabins.  Read entire member review.
These cabins were rated but not individually reviewed; read the full cruise review for opinions on cabins and more.
