My sister booked at the last minute, she is an Elite (now elite plus) member and she asked for an upgrade. Not sure what the ship's idea of an upgrade was but the room was adequately equipped for two female travelers to prepare for outings. There were places to hang things all over which we found awesome as we always bring extra hang over the door gadgets. The bathroom was nice! Yes folks, a George Jetson style shower with plenty of room to wash and lots of storage space to boot. We had at least three spaces we never even used. The design of the room was very well thought out and never felt claustrophobic. Because of the placement of the room (mid-forward) we hardly ever felt movement. It's a nice cabin but we expected at least a sofa and we got three chairs instead. If we wanted to spend any time in the cabin to watch movies we had to lay in the beds to do so comfortably. That was disappointing to us.
Cabin #8184 was an inside just forward of mid ship. Layout was great with adequate room for the 2 of us. Loved the extra storage above the bed but it was a little awkward getting to it. Closet was a little narrow but held a lot of clothes. Enjoyed the extra space in the shower. Really made a difference. Overall on of the better rooms we have had outside a balcony. The location was great and very quiet.
Our inside cabin was spacious enough but the storage is terrible. Who in the heck designed the shelf storage over the bed??? That is totally ridiculous. Also, the drawers are too small to hold much. Had to leave a lot in our suitcases under the bed. Closet doors are big and awkward in such a small area. Heads are great and we appreciated the doors on the shower. Cabin was quiet and TV gave more to pick from than some other cruise lines.
