Inside Cabins 21 Reviews
These Inside Staterooms are the most affordable way to cruise. There's room for up to four guests and they include two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and of course, you'll have room service and many other amenities.

Cabins are very small. The mini suites seem to be about the same size as Carribeans inside cabins

Cabin storage was excellent with large closet, many shelves, sufficient drawers.  Lighting much too soft for reading or writing.  Space adequate with the beds separate against each wall providing center walk area.  Quiet forward location.  Not too rough in 12 ft seas due to efficient stabilizers mid-ship.  Easy access to forward stairs and elevators bringing you up to the forward end of Pool Deck on 12 and the frequented Spinnaker Lounge on Deck 13.  Obviously the most distant are on the ship is the aft dining room.  Yet the walk aft is always a pleasure as you pass and say hello to many travelers in passing.  Bathroom is adequate.  Large rectangular glass-door-enclosed shower as opposed to some round showers in which you put the soap on the walls instead of on yourself.  Toilet is a bit uncomfortable in that the space for knees is short to the bulkhead.  Bathroom lighting is good.  Vacuum toilets were quiet.    Read entire member review.

well proportioned with excellent bathroom  Read entire member review.
Quiet location above the engine area. Kids play in hallways, but if you peek out there, the parent will stop the kids running.  Read entire member review.
sideways cabin. beds to the right and bathroom and closets to the left. Quiet hallways and occasional noise from the crew supply rooms that was on either side of our room. Good location near the elevators. No flat screen TV, old CRT TV. No coffee pot, no robes.  Read entire member review.

This was our first inside cabin and we thought it would be claustrophobic but it wasn't. It's the same size as the other cabins and the only real negative was that we couldn't tell if it was light or dark outside (or rainy or sunny). We've had both balconies and windows on other cruises. Balconies are great; windows are okay. Balconies get used, but believe me, you're not going to spend any time sitting on your bed looking out the window (if you can even see out the window without standing up). So from now on it's either a balcony or an inside cabin.

Cabin was great for our needs. I love to sleep in the pitch dark , so this wasn't a problem. i was worried about room temperature, but this always seemed to be just right for us. Plenty of room for storing our stuff. Stored our empty luggage under the bed and out of the way. The room steward was great and always came back to a spotless room. We both thought the bathroom was roomy, toilet might have been at an odd angle, but it worked ok. Loved the shower feature of being able to adjust the temperature and strength of spray. Room had a flatscreen TV. It had a small fridge which I used to store medication, had enough room. Inside cabin worked well for us, as we were hardly there except to change clothes and sleep.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was an inside room and I had my own room the boys were next door. Cabin was clean and our room steward was very receptive to our needs. I brought my own wine so he would leave me a fresh wine glass everyday. We removed all items from mini bar and used the frig for our water and wine. The boys used their frig for beer they got in the bucket of beers.

Inside room was small but bathroom was spacious as far as cruises go. Closet space was adequate. I was right under Buffet but the noise was not as bad as people made it out to be. Overall the room was fine.  Read entire member review.

Clean, lots of storage but TINY. Our cabin did have a fold down bunk bed on one side. They will also bring in another bed so it can be wall-to-wall beds with a loft over one. When getting dressed, everyone had to be on the bed or in the bathroom, as there is only enough room for one person to stand up. We did have our stateroom steward remove the chair on the first day and clean out our mini-fridge so we could use it. Thanks again Jose Olandesca for a great job keeping our room spotless!

I had an interior stateroom on deck 11 at the very back of the ship. It was just fine. No noise and the lack of windows was not a problem at all. You're not on the ship to sit in your room. The whole ship is a window. I would book the same room again.

An Alaskan Gem by Dannysgirl2011

I had an inside cabin which was not what you would call spacious but it was big enough for me and would have been OK for a couple. I did not spend that much time in there as there was too much to do/see/watch. My room attendant kept it clean and was so cheerful it was a joy to talk to her each day and the towel creations were a nice surprise to come back to each night.

Our interior cabin had two plugs, a large shower with a sliding door, plenty of storage space for 7 days, a hair dryer, a safe, comfortable beds, and a flat screen TV. There was some slight noise at night when tables were moved around on the outside dining area of Deck 12 (probably cleaning). The room is far aft, very convenient to eating in the buffet area on Deck 12, good for making you walk to the theater areas on Decks 6/7 forward. More rocking movement was noticed than would occur midship and on a lower deck, but the rocking doesn't bother me at all.

Quiet little cabin on deck 11 aft. Low traffic section of hallway, and convenient to our favorite dining spots. Interior cabin which didn't bother me, when we wanted to nap, we just killed the lights and it was dark. Bed was comfy, the bathroom was a little small, but hey, it's a ship. Also my wife and I are big people, I stand 6'5" and she 6'2" so any bathroom is small to us. Our room stewards were great. We kept our little towel animals on our desk, and by Sunday had quite a zoo going on. We left them a note that we liked the Towel Mice, and the next day, and for the rest of our cruise, we had sneaky towel mice all over our cabin, snuggled in a nest in the turndown of our covers, on our pillows, a little family of them on the TV. Very cute and thoughtful.  Read entire member review.
NCL Forever by wurm914
Our room, 11649 was an inside cabin tucked into the very back left hand corner of the ship. Lots of storage space, comfortable bed. The room attendants, Winnie and Hariharahan were very friendly and were quick to be sure we had everything we needed. Only downside is the noise, this room is directly below the tented dining area upstairs on deck 12. At 2:30 am, they move the tables to scrub the floor. At 4:30 am, they put the tables back. Ask me how I know - boy does that noise carry! After complaining once to a staffperson on duty in the Garden Cafe the second day and then bringing it to the attention of the reception desk the next day, they moved us. The only available cabin was 8118, an outside cabin which was a good deal bigger and had a very nice large window behind the bed. Now I still think that a window that you can't stand in front of is a bit of a waste, but it was nice to have a bigger (and much quieter) room. We really appreciated the Jewel's staff moving us and wish we had talked to reception about it right away.  Read entire member review.
