We were initially interested in booking a balcony stateroom but stuck to interior room to stay within budget and save money to spend on-board. While I'm sure a balcony stateroom would have offered some advantages, upon completion of the cruise, I can say that we never really missed having a balcony. We only spent time in our room at night or to change during the day.
The stateroom itself was clean and well ventilated. The attendants cleaned and took care of it twice a day. Noise from adjacent rooms wasn't that much of a problem -- nothing more than you get in a typical urban apartment. There was enough space below the beds to stow 2 airline check-in bags. The closet was large enough for 2 people with enough shelves and hangers -- my wife and I didn't have to compete for space at all.
Bathroom space was scarce but this was expected. There isn't much counter-top or storage space inside. As recommended by many, we took an over-the-door organizer to keep bathroom cosmetics and it was a brilliant suggestion. Read entire member review >>
Small but served there purpose. Kind a impressed how small yet functional it was. We only showered and slept. No real need for anything extra in a room. Service was always on point. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin. We had adjoining interior cabins to accommodate extra family traveling with us on this cruise. Had some issues when our regular cabin attendant came down with the flu and her replacement got confused. Things got sorted out quickly with guest relations and the rest of the cruise went well. We like interior cabins as we don't have extraneous light from the windows/portholes interfering with sleeping in or taking naps. Read entire member review >>
We had an inside cabin and we immediately met our cabin steward, Winsome. She was a fabulous cabin steward; probably one of the best I have ever had. She was very friendly and we saw her quite a bit during the week. 150sf of cabin is very, very small, especially with two people. And the bathroom shower is very tiny. If one would open the bathroom door and the closet door at the same time they would smack each other. There was a good amount of storage space in the cabin even with two people. There were no problems with the beds as had been reported on Cruise Critic. Our great cabin steward kept everything clean and the only issue we had was what I thought was dried blood on the top sheet of my bed. Now, I do think it was clean but I do think it was blood. So, I had the cabin attendant change out all my sheets. She did that with no problem at all. RE: TV channels….It would be nice to have ABC, NBC, and CBS but I did survive the week without them.

STATEROOM: For this cruise, we booked an inside cabin (Room 1277) on deck 10. Our assumption was that we would not be spending much time in the room, so did not need a balcony. It was a wise decision. The room was small, but had more than sufficient storage and enough space for two adults to move around without tripping over each other. The closet held our two suitcases, with enough shelves and hanger space for all of our clothes. It also had a room safe significantly larger than the one aboard the Quantum. In addition there were a half dozen drawers in the desk in the room, plus additional storage for incidentals in small drawers in night stands on either side of the bed and alongside the mirror. Built in night lights on both sides of the bed were a nice touch, as inside cabins are otherwise totally dark, even at midday.
The bathroom was also small, but well maintained. During the voyage a maintenance crew came in to replace one of the shower stall panels which apparently was cracked, though we never even noticed. Our stateroom steward, Jeff O., did a great job keeping the room cleaned, our ice bucket filled, our champagne chilled, and providing some hilarious towel animals – including Halloween themed bats and a “towel man” sitting on the sofa watching TV with the remote in his hand. Nice touch.
As an additional note on the cabin, its location was excellent. Being far forward, a short walk down the hall towards the bow brings you to either the stairs, where a quick walk up one flight brings you to deck 11 and outside, or the elevators. A longer walk down the hall towards the stern brings you to a flight of stairs right up to Windjammer. Definitely a very convenient location, especially if you want to avoid the elevator crowds.

Standard inside Cabin was comfortable with more than ample storage, great firm beds for my back and joints, shower is lacking in temp and pressure, nice shower with doors, complimentary toiletries are a joke, bring your favorite products, linens on bed very nice, bathroom towels better than average but not by much, no robes, very outdated phone system, prints of leaves hanging in cabin very nice and relaxing, settee and desk chair worn and need recovering as do most of the vessel's soft furnishings Read entire member review >>
Cabin was interior but we don't spend much time there. That is why we chose it. Very clean, service very good. Could not have asked for anything more. Also the location was good. Read entire member review >>
We had an interior room on the 10th floor, cabin 1659. The room was a really good size with a sitting area and desk. The bed is two twins either separated or apart with comfortable linens. The bathroom is the typical small room with sink, toilet and shower, but the shower had a nice door closure instead of just a shower curtain. The room also came with a flat screen TV, safe and refrigerator. There was a curtain area separating the bed from the main cabin, which was really nice if someone wanted to sleep or dress in private. It was a one of the best interior rooms I have encountered. Read entire member review >>
We did an interior which we always do on short cruises. It was an average interior room. Bathroom, particularly the shower was very small. Smaller than other interior cabins we have experienced. Read entire member review >>
2359 is an inside cabin that is in a decent location in the aft.
Quiet location. From this location, no issue to get an elevator to higher floors. Up one flight of stairs, deck three has Studio B for ice skating show; dining rooms are in the aft so convenient to get to dining rooms. Windjammer is in the aft, so this location is also good to get to Windjammer Read entire member review >>
1321-Accessible inside cabin on 10th deck. We had booked a guarantee inside cabin and were assigned the accessible cabin. It was huge! My late husband used a wheelchair and I would have loved to have this cabin back then. Read entire member review >>
Lots more storage space and nooks than you would thin. Water will leak onto the floor if you shower too long, but they have good water pressure. Comfortable beds with nice sheets. Great location, very near the buffet and pool. Read entire member review >>
We got cabin 1365 on deck 10 aft (category L), starboard side of the ship, aft of the aft elevators. Our cabin attendant was Jeant, a charming man who kept the place spic and span during the whole trip. We are no slobs, having been trained by our wives in the fine art of picking up after ourselves. All in all, the cabin was neat as a pin the whole time. The cabin itself is the usual spartan and cramped 152 square feet inside cabin I have seen so many times. We had very comfortable beds, luxurious bedding, more than enough space to hang our clothes and stow our belongings. The safe worked perfectly the whole time and Jeant kept us supplied with ice 2 or 3 times a day. When requested, a container for my used insulin needles was promptly supplied. We could plug our digital video camera in the TV's HDMI port, but these functions are disabled on the ship's TV. We could live with that. We reviewed the day's videos on my laptop computer. They can slow me down but they can't stop me. Read entire member review >>
We usually select a balcony cabin but tried to save a bit of cash this time around and go inside. The space was adequate but we will not choose inside again. We love being able to sleep with the slider open and hear the waves crashing as we sail at night and love to wake up to sunshine and seeing the ports we arrive at. Read entire member review >>
