It is mid ships and a great state room.  Read entire member review.
As big a cabin as we've found on a large ship. Decent (but not great) size shower room.Never heard a sound from cabins next door or corridor. For a mid-level balcony (we usually go for the top deck), we found it fine, as not at all overlooked  Read entire member review.
Cabin 6228 was lovely, spacious and comfortable, we took my wife's mobility scooter and were able to park outside the cabin during the day and had no problem storing inside at night. Bathroom great, shower powerful and hot, if you need a stool order in advance. Cabin attendant lovely, nothing too much trouble, removed our duvet on the first day and replaced with sheets and blankets as we were more comfortable with this arrangement. Take china cups and coffee as the paper cups are horrid!  Read entire member review.
Loved my balcony on Indy! by Amanda Littler
Cabin 6330, a balcony cabin on the hump, was an excellent choice. It was not to high in the water, central to all amenities, right by the lifts, our dining room was one floor directly below, as was reception and the beginning of the Promenade. The library was one floor up. The kids club and Windjammer right up the stairs by our cabin. Everything was to hand and this meant that the ship did not seem too large at all. It was always quiet too.  Read entire member review.
Our stateroom definately met our expectations, we choose a balcony as being able to have fresh air as well as daylight is important to me, not being a morning person I would never have woken up with an inside cabin! The stateroom attendants were always on hand but never intrusive which is a great combination, the stateroom was always cleaned and the towel animals always a talking point.  Read entire member review.
Best Vacation EVER! by truck72003
Large room, large balcony. Not too far from elevators. VERY nice to be only one level up from Promenade & Dining Room. Low enough on ship to have little side to side sway. Some engine vibrations felt, but rare.  Read entire member review.
Great view, great water pressure, awful "knocking" sound from the bathroom  Read entire member review.
The view was unobstructed and the balcony was AWESOME! Everything about the room was GREAT! I only wish Daniel our room attendant could be our room attendant every time!  Read entire member review.
Lovely cabin no vibrations from ship and very quiet  Read entire member review.
Very impressed with the size of the cabin and had a good balcony, it was quiet at night, and had a very good steward assigned to it.  Read entire member review.
7356 was a nice spacious stateroom with plenty of room to move. The balcony makes a real difference and offered excellent views both in port and at sea. There is plenty of room to store luggage and the closet was sufficient for our needs. Situated on the starboard side on a quiet corridor, this stateroom is close to the library and elevators.  Read entire member review.
Good location at the rear of ship, near elevators. Good deck to have - between didning and subathing areas so not too far to either if you have to take the stairs.  Read entire member review.
Quiet cabin, good location.  Read entire member review.
lost in paradise!! by independentcutie
The cabin was great,D2 both 7666 to Fort Lauderdale and 7633 from Fort Lauderdale were larger than expected, with plenty of room to move around, our cases fitted comfortably under the bed, which seemed really big. There was plenty of hanging space, and room in the closet. The dressing table/desk had nice mirrors, a chair, kettle (whopeee!!) tea/coffe, creamer sugar etc. The fridge was small but well stocked with whatever you ask your room attendant for, unless you wanted it empty for your own stuff. The sofa bed was huge for sitting on. (only two of us) The bathroom was small but adequate, with a really nice shower, with shower door, not a messy curtain, a basin, with some room on and under the vanity unit for toiletries. The balcony was a really nice size, with a small table and 2 chairs, perspex type glass between cabins, but you could not see through, and the balcony was nice and private. The only problem is if someone smokes on the next door balcony, that is unpleasant. Great views across the ocean when lying in bed. We did not really hear anyone in the hallways outside our room, we were not close to the elevator, or any other public area, the library was not to far, but that is quiet anyway.  Read entire member review.

Better than before by netballer
cabin 7518 front d2 grade, very quiet with ample room in bathroom and balcony, no movement being at the front, hairdryer powerful and comfy bed  Read entire member review.
Cabin : 7556 (deck 7) Balcony Cabin. Good location, 7 cabins to the lift access area. Quiet location, minimal noise from neighbours. Outside balcony area adequate with 2 chairs and a table. Extremely pleasant overall. We travelled as a couple, so the closet space was very spacious. Closet across from the bathroom. Plenty of hanging space, plenty of shelving. Easy to access safe at adult height, this is located inside of the closet. Bathroom is nicely appointed with an enclosed shower (no clingy curtain). Shampoo and soap are supplied. Water pressure very good. Cabin was bright and well lit, with lots of lighting options. TV and remote in good working order. Fridge (mini-bar choices available). Nice vanity area with lighting around the mirror, hair-drier and drawer space. A seperate stand-alone vanity mirror would have been welcome. Large bed, quality bedding and very comfortable.  Read entire member review.
Huge cabin and balcony, great, quiet location near elevators and library  Read entire member review.
great location, ample space for storage, very quiet  Read entire member review.

Our balcony cabin was very large with a long lounge and had a comfortable bed under which the suitcases fitted. The bedside cabinets were small but there was plenty of room around the bed. There was a double wardrobe with shelves down one end. Three power points were supplied.

Having all the cabin ceiling lights on one switch made night-time difficult when one partner retires before the other. Our cabin steward helped solve this problem by having the ceiling light bulb above the bed removed (it had a sealed cover).

As apparently our cabin steward wasn't allowed to remove the contents from the small fridge himself, it took a few days for it to happen. In the meantime we removed them ourselves so we could keep our drinks cold. Our cabin steward was friendly and seemed efficient at his job. A useful electric jug and large ice bucket were supplied.

The reasonable sized ensuite had a shower with a sliding door instead of the usual annoying curtain. Water pressure was good. Individual toiletry bottles are not supplied.

The balcony was a generous size but the door didn't seal with the result that the cold air poured in at night.

KIDS GALORE!!!!! by J. Anderson
Good size, nice and quiet, did smell from time to time of sewage.  Read entire member review.
Good sized balcony. No over hang. Flat screen tv, clean and tidy room. No spirits in mini fridge. Shower fine.  Read entire member review.
Our D2 cabin was fine. Comfy Queen size bed. Balcony big enough for two.
Sufficient hanging space. Totally quiet on level 8 towards the back of the ship  Read entire member review.
Prefer not to have a balcony next to smokers on both sides which restricted our enjoyment.  Read entire member review.
Our room was certainly big enough, very comparable to the Carnival balcony rooms. The only thing I really noticed, was the ceiling was a little lower than on Carnival. Made the room feel smaller. But still an acceptable room, and enough space to put your clothes away. Behind the mirror in the bathroom, is a shelving unit where you can put small toiletries and keep things off the counter. (right side only).  Read entire member review.

A good size room with balcony, large sofa and super-kingsize bed which was very comfortable.

I loved the cabin location and the room itself. It was extremely clean and well maintained. Very little signs of wear. Kudos to the housekeeping staff for doing such a phenomenal job.

IOS - Balcony D2 - 8654 -- One of the biggest balcony staterooms that we have stayed in for our 7 past cruises. Couch, large size bureau, huge closet with lots of hangers and side shelves, lots of little hidden storage areas. Store suitcases under the bed. Bathroom also huge, with rounded shower doors. Balcony size also large, compared to Princess and Norwegian ships.  Read entire member review.

Early Spring break by Littlerammy
Cabin 9366 the largest balcony cabin we have had on any cruise plenty of space to move around. Bathroom was good size and shower did not have the dreaded shower curtain. No Toiletries was on the down side, but tea and coffee making was a bonus.  Read entire member review.

First time cruise by Norfolk Travellers
9590 was mid ship - it was a bit of a walk either way to the nearest lift, but a good location. Quiet because people were not passing by too much.  Read entire member review.
We loved our D2 cabin. The cabin had a full sized sofa and a flat screen TV. It was a nice walk from the elevator but not as far as a AFT room.  Read entire member review.

Great cabin Queen size bed brilliant shame Balcony use limited & spoilt by next door being smokers (good to allocate separate cabin areas for smokers).  Read entire member review.
Spacious cabin well laid out with good balcony  Read entire member review.

Superior Oceanview Stateroom on Deck 9, mid-ship. Balcony had two chairs, a lounger and a small table. Brother and his wife in next Stateroom so we had the divider unlocked. Our Cabin Steward Singh was polite and very efficient.
