This cabin was the best part of the trip! It is oh so spacious. They do need to upgrade the furniture because when you open drawers there is peeling paint and vinyl. Also the bathroom has rust and chips throughout. Also, the TV was old and would not come in clear. Other than that it was very nice to be able to separate the bedroom from the living room with the curtain and also have a curtain for the children's sleeping area. Read entire member review >>
We had 2 single beds and the drop down bed from the wall. That was nice to store our luggage and clothes on. We had a nice big window. 2 of us managed but if there would have been 3 it would have been tight. Id probably pick a balcony room for 3 which I had on the Anthem and we did fine. 4 would have been tight on the Anthem even with a balcony. Read entire member review >>
The cabin itself was very spacious. 1 King bed, 2 bunk beds, and a Sofa Bed. They also provided us with a crib for our small child to sleep in. The carpet and furniture in the room is dated and dirty. Excellent view in our room at the very front of the ship. It was a little rocky some nights, but not too bad. None of us ever got sea-sick. The cleaning crew seemed overworked, and understaffed. During our first night stay we found a half-eaten lollipop under our bed. And the worst was a half-eaten apple behind our phone. We did not notice that until one of our children picked it up. Disgusting. They will not change your sheets to fresh sheets unless you request (even if there are visible stains, food, and filth on the existing sheets). They just make up the bed and re-fold your towels. You can get new towels by leaving your used ones on the floor. They do come in routinely to make up the room, just not very thorough. The rooms provide shampoo/conditioner, and soap for the sink area. There is also a hairdryer in the room. Plenty of storage space for all your belongings. During our cruise, they had 1 channel on the TV dedicated to playing DreamWorks movies which was great for our children. They also had CNN, TBS, TNT, and some other channels.

I would have preferred a balcony room but booked too late to get one. Our room had a king size bed and two bunk beds which drop down from the ceiling. It really is a cool set up. We recognized the room would be small as cruise ship rooms are so no complaints. Everything worked well. Read entire member review >>
Very decent room for our large family of 6 when most cruise lines do not even offer this size and at a great price. Only negative is that your forever away from everything so prepare to walk...a lot. Read entire member review >>
The room was spacious enough to fit 4 adults and a child. However we are a close knit family and can adapt. The bunk bed was broke (the stairs to the top bunk were missing 2 steps). Read entire member review >>
Whatever you do, if you can afford it, get a stateroom with a BALCONY. You can't beat this view and facility. We stayed in stateroom 7214, right in front on the starboard side. The port side stateroom is 7514 I think- try to get one of these. If possible try to the "14" or "54" series -- right in the front on either port or starboard side. Please check with your Travel agent.
The stateroom is very comfortable. Ensuite bathroom is cozy but comfortable manouverable room. Good shower. Good exhaust.
The room is like any hotel room- for the four of us we were very very comfortable. My kids had a sofa bed, which Christian (our stateroom attendant and a GREAT guy) set up every evening. Good TV. Comfortable beds. Spacious room. I'll take this anyday I come back to the Ship! Read entire member review >>
2268 Family Ocean View. Great location and we had 6 people in this room.Loved being in the end room and loved the lower floor. Not sure if it was just a coincidence but lots of the entertainers were on our floor. It made for some good people watching. The room itself was spacious enough and had beds for each but 1 bathroom was tough. I often showered in the Health club! J,aes the stateroom attendant was terrific. Read entire member review >>
8200 is the bomb! So much space for a large family like ours. Two huge closets with shelves. Two desk areas. Large floor to ceiling mirror. Needed outlets outside of master sleeping area. Two t.v.s. Three large windows looking right out to the front of the ship. Foot stools are storage areas. Great for kids toys and blankets so they don't get made up in the sofa bed. This room is awesome. Loved it!! Read entire member review >>
6500 Family Oceanview- This is a great room for families, we slept 4 children ages 8,6,4 and 9 months and two adults. Small curtained closet with bunks and great storage for suitcases and children's clothing. Pull out only big enough for a child. We were able to fit our pac n play crib in a small area between the wardrobe and the window, providing a nice small nook for the baby to sleep in. A little bumpy at the front of the ship but the kids really enjoyed the views from the windows. No tub in bathroom which would be nice with children. Read entire member review >>
