Great time by dtcajr
Tiny closet, but adaquet. Nice balcony, but the glass on the railing was dirty. Wife grabbed a towel and cleaned the streaks. Not that big a deal. Mostly quiet, but hey it's a floating hotel so your going to get some noise. Actually we were up front 2 suits from the front on the 11th floor so there was not much traffic. However it's very rocky. Not for the sea sick proned crowd.  Read entire member review.

We had a mini suite. Size of room was nice. However, the room needed dusting and some minor attention still when we got in. the TV was really small and dated. Overall, the room seemed tired.  Read entire member review.

Smaller than similar stateroom category on other cruise lines. Wood furnishings need refurbishment. Closet located next to side of bed makes it difficult to hang and retrieve clothing. Bathroom adequate size and includes full size but. Bedding and linens comfortable. Hair conditioner, body lotion and robes not provided (these are standard in this category stateroom on other cruise lines). Very heavy hairdryer. No information in the room regarding ship deck plans, crew bios, etc. No recycling bin.  Read entire member review.

This was a great cabin, usually very quiet as it is under the card room or library.  Read entire member review.

It was okay, I guess... by retiredredleg
A bit noisy, as the Market Cafe was directly above, but we liked the fact there were no neighbors aft of our room. Good size for two, but more would have been an issue.  Read entire member review.

11516
11516 was on the low end of the 107 mini-suites on this ship. It was larger than a room with a balcony, although it did have a wide balcony. The bath was large, with a separate compartment for the toilet. The shower and bath were a combo unit, with an excellent size tub. Plenty of space for toiletries. The bed areas and sitting area was divided by a heavy drape. Beds were very comfortable with excellent linen. Plenty of cabinets and racks for clothes. The sitting area had a large movable table for eating breakfast in the room. This is a luxury. TV was small and tube model (I didn't think they still made them). Fully stocked frig with extra space for things you might bring back from the dining rooms. Carpets clean and fresh, the room seemed to bet dusty very fast and the steward has a small bit of trouble keeping up with it. Decor was nautical wood paneling and art. Good lighting, 2 110 v sockets, working hair dryer, provided bath robes, and large deck chairs and table. We like this room a lot. Some of the higher level mini-suites come with a Butler, but I actually was glad mine did not, I don't need a four o'clock appetizer!!.  Read entire member review.

Room 11516 was right off the stairs and elevator near the front of the ship which was convenient. On our floor there was very little noise, however, above us were family suites and apparently kids who were not supervised as they ran up and down the hall above us. Lots of thumping above noise.
We loved the balcony and thought the room was spacious, including the bathroom. It was clean, but worn.
Our room steward was excellent, cleaning our coffee pot sometimes twice a day. There was plenty of storage and closet room for 2 people and I think if you had 4 it would be tight, but durable.
We slept well and felt little if any ship movement as we sailed the Baltic. Aside from the noise above, I would book this room again.

The portside mini-suite was mid-ship forward and had excellent views departing the World Cruise Center, coming into Cabo with magnificent views of Arch Rock, and was excellent in and out of Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. Well laid out and more generous than we expected, fit two adults and two (large!) teenage boys comfortably even on days when we preferred to hang out in the room and watch movies. The balcony was well protected from wind and the chairs reclined sufficiently to relax in the sun. There was ample storage for four with an addition of an over-the-door shoe rack for toiletries and small items and a power strip for chargers.  Read entire member review.

11662, 11666, 11668 mini suites Aft balconies beneath the buffet. We did not notice any buffet noise despite our location. The outcropping of the buffet does overlook these balconies so if you're big on privacy you may not like this cabin. (The cabins forward of this one are beneath the outcropping and have significant overhand which shields you from sun) Very convenient to buffet and spa. Loads of storage space, although the space between the bed and closet is a bit tight.  Read entire member review.

Nice cabin but it creaked all of the time. We were under the Teen Center but it wasn't a problem because there were very few children on this cruise. Liked having a curtain between the bed and couch area. Really like having a coffee maker and the cabin steward kept us well supplied.  Read entire member review.

mini-suite deck 11, #11680: noisy often, under kids area with running noisily above our heads; dusty room, balcony could use more privacy from neighbors by having more partition between them; deck 11 is convenient to go to fitness center and buffet restaurant above on the stairs nearby (also elevators very close to this room)  Read entire member review.

Mini Suite- 11506, not worth the extra money, smallller than others I have stayed in (same category) Small Closet for a mini suite Bathroom Nice size had a bathtub with a separate water closet Nice water pressure on the shower Balcony was a nice size. Great view TV was an older tube set with poor picture quality Noise was minimal Steward knocked on room door if you slept to late (even with do not disturb sign up) OVERALL - Not worth the extra money get a Balcony Cabin  Read entire member review.
