Our room was pretty standard in size with a nice big window. Not too big and not too small. We could move around without tripping over each other and our luggage.
Showers in the standard state rooms are small and there's just enough room to turn around but unless you're trying out for Cirque du Soleil when you get back from your cruise you should be fine. :)
Plenty of clothes storage space for three people. Closets big enough to accommodate some types of luggage bags. No drainage or plumbing issues. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Comfortable cabin on Deck 2 mid-ship. My daughter and her friend were in the cabin next door. We went to our cabins have eating lunch so it was available. The cabin steward was in the hallway and she quickly came over to introduce herself. There were chuckles from both of us when I saw her name was Josie, just like yours truly. Very efficient nice lady. Oddly enough, while I was talking to her, another cabin steward went by hauling luggage. He stopped abruptly and called out “Miss Josie”! Tom was the cabin steward on my December sailing on the Inspiration. I was blown away that he actually remembered me. Read entire member review >>
Room was bigger than I expected with plenty of closet space, outlets and well designed. Once, late at night our toilet overflowed and by the time I figured out that all you needed to do to stop it was to re-flush some water spilled onto the carpet. It probably was our fault using too much toilet paper. Staff came quickly to be sure it was working properly and to clean up the water. Read entire member review >>
Quiet room except for weird water plumbing noise in bathroom. Bathroom had yucky urine smell that would not go away (no, not my husband). Noisy on last night of cruise, could hear the luggage being loaded into hull. Spacious, lots and lots of storage. Upholstery stained. Stewards not fastidious. Had to dust before placing my items onto shelves. Read entire member review >>
Excellent storage, liked the bathroom, window made us happy, laundry nearby on the other side of the ship and to get to the mdr it's not accessible with the nearest elevators. Read entire member review >>
Nice ocean view room. We asked the room steward to remove the drinks in the mini-fridge so we had room for our own stuff and wouldn't be charged. Our room was right under the galley (kitchen), and we occasionally heard dishes or carts rolling. Not a huge problem, but probably would not stay under it again. Other than that, we liked our room location. The lower on the boat and more toward the center you are, the less rocking you feel and it is easy and quick to get to most locations on the ship.

Great room, good size, big window; you could actually sit in the windows edge like a reading nook type. The only cons were that the deck above us was very loud it was the exterior deck and there was always scraping in the the middle of the night all night and you could hear loud people in the hallways all hours of the night but the room itself was very nice and the room steward was great.

Stateroom 1356 was spacious and quiet with lots of storage room. There are 3 cabinets alone for hanging clothes! The decor was pastel passe, the bed - nothing fancy, not firm, nor soft. The bed did squeak incessantly which was probably more annoying to the neighbors than for us. The linens were a poly-cotton blend- not starched. Definitely NOT hotel quality. The tiny bathroom was extremely basic. I despise shower curtains, I was disappointed by this "El Cheapo" touch. All this being said, the room was clean, comfy- well thought out. I thought the light switch in the headboard allowing one to turn out the lights from bed was a nice touch. Be prepared for loud "clanging" noises the night before you debark, this is the sound of luggage being loaded into to totes directly below your room on deck 0. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 2392. Ample room. Comfortable beds. Clean. Bathroom very ample. Plenty of closet/cabinet space for two. Small refrigerator bar. Plenty of room under beds to store luggage. For those that may be noise or vibration sensitive, this may not be a good cabin for you. Not that the noise/vibration is overbearing, but it is present. Heat and Air seemed to be fine, but at night it seemed the cabin got a bit warmer than we prefer. Read entire member review >>
On the Conquest, you have a choice of 220 sqft in the cabin with no balcony, or if you want a balcony, they carve the space out of the 220 sqft box. Unless you really use the balcony, you'll enjoy the extra space in the cabin, especially with four passengers sharing the space. Being on Deck 1 midship was nice. Close to gangways, so no waiting for elevators or climbing stairs to get on/off the ship at ports, and close to the main lobby areas. No noise from above or below, but plenty from the hallway and some from the adjoining room (through connecting door). Read entire member review >>
Great room. We loved our window. Two people could sit in it and look outside. Very little noise except for the last night. We slept like babies (except for the last night). Read entire member review >>
Too much noise from the disco below!!! If you don't go to bed until after 1 or 2 am, this would be the cabin for you.
A little cramped, but OK.
Half the time when I stepped out on to the balcony to take in the view I also took in the neighbor's cigarette smoke. That got annoying. Read entire member review >>
