A-Okay by jdub0319

We booked an obstructed view cabin, mid-ship, starboard side. It was a decent size, with two small windows obstructed by the lifeboats. I was most impressed with the size of the shower in the bathroom. It's probably the largest shower stall I've ever seen across RCCL, CCL, and NCL. I also noticed the sliding partition door for the toilet area, however we couldn't use it because it would fall off its tracks when you tried to close it. I almost got stuck and my fiance had to bail me out.

There is plenty of storage in the stateroom. Once we were unpacked, I still had so many compartments left empty.

Our stateroom steward, Robin, was quite friendly and helpful. Early in the week we did have an issue with our toilet not flushing, and later in the week we had an issue with the safe not opening. Robin took care of the issues immediately (notifying the appropriate departments and getting the issues resolved) and then following up to make sure the issues were corrected and nothing else was wrong.

Bermuda rerouted to Bahamas by bostonredsoxfans

Deck 8 - cabin 8592: The room was an outside obstructed view cabin on NCL. I chose this since I didn't feel my usual balcony choice was worth the price on the Dawn, and was quite glad I didn't get the balcony as we had more room in our OBX stateroom, than our friends did in their balcony due to the set up of the twin beds in both our rooms. Since this was a "girls cruise" we had the twin bed set up rather than the full bed, as I do when traveling with my husband.
The bathroom was odd, and there was barely any room where the toilet it was wedged into a "water closet" type of bathroom. Since I am 5'9" tall, my knees essentially hit the wall when using the toilet and that was without attempting to close the "somewhat see-through" sliding door to the water closet. If you don't know what a water closet is when they enclose the toilet section with a privacy door but it is still within the bathroom assuming people can be using the toilet privately, while others can use the sink area. This wasn't the case in this bathroom.
We also had a terrible gushing-water sound all the time from the wall behind the toilet, but luckily when the bathroom door was closed tight at night, we were able to sleep. Twice we had to call maintenance to help - first when the toilet was extremely slow flushing (you pushed the flush button, but it didn't flush for about 2-3 more minutes). Then when the shower didn't drain and flooded the floor of the bathroom. They did come quickly to fix it but I have since found out that other friends have had the same issues on this ship on different cruise weeks and decks.
