I"m not sure I picked the correct variety of "Interior Stateroom" but we had side-by-side (non-adjoining) rooms, one for 2 people and one for 3; the one for 3 was the sort with the pull down beds/pullman beds. The decor was nice, there's plenty of storage in the room; we were able to fully unpack (even our over-packed selves) in each room, there were plenty of hangers though we did double up pants/shirts on a single hanger (one pant & shirt per hanger) in order to accomodate all of us, but the shelves were plenty for everyone, drawers, etc. Neither room did we use all of the available storage, and both rooms felt comfortable and roomy enough, even at times when we would all 5 gather in one or the other. The shower is TINY -- one of the comedians summed it up with a joke about slipping in the shower and falling nowhere.....yep, that's about right. Otherwise though, sufficient rooms and if, like us, you prefer your money to go to things you'll see more of than sleeping at night....perfectly adequate and not claustrophobic feeling at all.

It's tight, but livable. You don't spend much time in the room. The refrigerator does not work. It's difficult to get ice. The beds are rock hard--literally supported by a piece of plywood. Read entire member review >>
We had an interior promenade stateroom. It was clean and comfortable. A problem occurred when we arrived and found we had no hot water. The water was only luke warm. We told our room attendant and asked him if he was the person we should report this to, he told us he was. . We were traveling with a family member who was in an adjoining room, and she did not have hot water either. For the next two days we all had only cool showers. So our other family member asked our room attendant about it and was told he would report it. By day 6, we still had no hot water so our other family member called guest services and had to let them know we were very unhappy about not having hot all week. Then we FINALLY had hot water!

We had the cheapest possible room on the ship and we thought it was perfectly fine for 2 people. There was plenty of room for us and all of our clothes. The bed was very comfortable and already had the little foam pad on it which made it very soft. Read entire member review >>
We typically get a suite but since we booked at the last minute we decided to go with just a basic interior cabin. I always thought it would be uncomfortable in such a small space but we were very pleasantly surprised. It is definitely tight but we weren't in there very often and found it really wasn't a problem. It is going to make us rethink our cabin choices going forward. Suites do get some nice perks but trust me they pay handsomely for them. This cabin was on the 9th floor just 2 doors down from the elevator in the rear of the ship. It was easy to get to the Windjammer and pool from there and we never heard any elevator noises. At less than half the price of a suite, this stateroom was a bargain. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small but adequate. It had a small sofa and the bed was set up as a King. However, that did not allow much room to move around it, so I had it changed into twins which opened up the center giving us plenty of room. I recommend the inside cabins is you don't stay in the room much and don't want a balcony. Read entire member review >>
To be honest, we were making this impulse cruise as cheaply as possible. I chose the entry-level interior stateroom, and it was perfect for the two of us. The only crowded part was the entry from the door, then the space opened up. The room had a fridge (stocked, and they charged you for what you used, but you could keep your own things there, too) and a safe. Storage seemed completely adequate for us and our two large suitcases stored easily under the beds. The beds featured memory foam tops. The bathroom had a narrow countertop, with another narrow bit of storage the length underneath that, in addition to triangle shaped shelfs. You really don't have to work out of your toilet kit if you don't want, although my daughter did hang hers off the back of the door. Shower is a tight fit. If you are a large person, you may feel uncomfortable. I joked it was like taking a shower in a large water heater, as it is round in shape. But it worked fine in practice, and, hot water was immediate and plentiful. There was a shower head on a removable handle, and of course a string to hang wet clothes on. There is a pump dispenser for shampoo, and bar soap provided, but bring any conditioner you want with you. There is a hair dryer in the room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in a great location, right above the diningroom and Royal Promenade. Some people say that being above the dinigroom can be noisy at early or late hours but I heard nothing. It was not noisy at all. I absolutely have no complaints about our cabin Read entire member review >>
We had an interior room after having balconies before. We just wanted the least expensive option. And although I did miss the balcony some, overall our room was nice, comfortable, clean and met our needs. We really did not spend much time there anyway. We have cruised before and we knew the bathrooms were small so that was expected. We did have a room next to one with bunks and it took us several nights to figure out that the large thumps we were hearing was people jumping down from their beds. But that didn't really bother us and I would do an interior room again if I am on a budget or haven our children withnus. Read entire member review >>
Our interior cabin was excellent and every spare space was put to use. It worked very well for 2 friends. Bathroom and shower was great and there was lots of closet space and shelves - more than we expected. It was very quiet in the room and we slept very well. Read entire member review >>
We found the cabin to be quiet. It was nice having a 2 seater sofa. I found the table unnecessary. the flat panel television was nice. Bathroom was small but very serviceable - we had to share the one cabinet. Though it was at the front of the ship we did not have a problem with motion - the Caribbean was calm on this trip.

Cabin 8377 is tiny but that's to be expected. The pitch blackness is the best part. The bathroom is painfully small. Storage space is fine for two people. It's in a very quiet location (good for me) towards the aft section of the ship. It's a bit of a walk from the staircase but not HORRIBLE by any means. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an inside N category double occupancy cabin. Me, my husband and two kids ages 13 and 8 were able to stay there comfortably. There is a huge closes with shelves, wall unit with drawers and plenty space in the bathroom for personal items. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was close to everything, just one level up from the Royal Promenade and the Aft Atrium with access to many areas. Just nearby the Main Dining Room, very easy to spruce up for dinner after swimming or an activity and dress or get ready then duck down just 1-3 staircases depending which dining room. We were in Catergory N Inside Cabin on Deck 6 port side, just aft of Business Services. Read entire member review >>
