We had an inside stateroom on Deck 8 forward. Since the room is located on the middle corridor and accessed from the port-side corridor, it's somewhat tucked away and thus fairly quiet. Plus, we were forward, so there were no activities near us and no engine noise either. The closet was smallish, but there was room under the bed for luggage and 3 deep desk drawers that could easily serve as hampers. The storage space above the bed was nice, but awkward to access. Very useful were 2 American-standard power outlets. The bathroom was fairly spacious with 3 stacked shelves for cups/toothbrushes, 3 small drawers for odds/ends, and a small collection of convenince items, including Q-tips. The shower was instantly hot and encased in curved shower doors.
