Family Inside Cabins

25 Reviews
These Inside Staterooms are the most affordable way for the whole family to cruise. With room for up to four, you'll have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate up to two more guests. Plus you'll have access to all kinds of amenities, like room service and so much more.

It was comfortable. We used the pack n play and push the beds against the wall. My only complaint would be the lights that did not work and the air conditioning problems. Our room was cleaned daily and we really enjoyed the towel animals!!

Our cabin was attractive and clean and there was enough closet space to unpack all our things. The kids enjoyed the bunk arrangement. With 4 of us in a cabin it was tight but comfortable. We picked a cabin towards the rear of the ship - this was a good choice for families as the kids program and kids pool which are both toward the rear of the ship upstairs. The cabin has a clothesline in the shower but as there isn't much air movement, swimwear never fully dries when hanging on it, and makes the bathroom smell like seawater. I wish there was a self-serve laundry facility on the boat for guests.

5639 was a HORRIBLE room for us on this cruise. The worst problem of all was being in the same section as the ship's malfunctioning Water Treatment System. The sewer gas fumes were so bad that I had to be moved from our cabin to a higher deck (I am a cancer patient). NCL is to be applauded for keeping a cabin vacant on this ship so that we could be moved!!! Thank you NCL. 5639 is the last room in the mid-ship section, and next to the door where the crew gathers for their fun. It was quite loud at times, but I can sleep thru anything & was not bothered. Just outside our door however, was a problem with a leak of some sort, twice. We were awakened to the noise of shop vacs & drying fans & I feared having our cabin flooded. While our room was accommodating it appeared to be smaller than other inside cabins, and the remote did not work well (it was also missing it's back). The Room Steward was the WORST we have ever encountered (perhaps this was his training ground?). We never saw him before mid-afternoon, and the 2nd day of our cruise, I had to call for towels.

Our Inside room was one floor above the Spinnaker Lounge, AFT, and not too far from the lifts. Quite noisy the first night from the events in the Lounge. Did not bother my husband at all. Once I got used to the sounds, I slept well every night. Nice size shower, very Comfortable bed and Luxurious linens. There was a large framed Sea Turtle in our room, as if picked especially for me. We choose inside rooms at times so we can cruise more often.

10587 & 10589

as expected except 10587 had a plumbing trap problem that allowed methane gas to enter the cabin the entire trip. We put the kids in 10589 for this reason.

Comfortable and plenty of room for two. But I wouldn't want to try this cabin with three. Comfortable bed.

Nice size bathroom with glass shower door - unlike Carnivals plastic shower curtain. Cabin itself was small but worked well. Only problem was that the bed was so close to the TV and small table, you were forced to climb down the middle of the bed to get out. Good amount of closet space, hangers and drawers.

Room 9725, 9727. Two inside rooms, 9727 had a musty smell. Very clean, adequate storage for 2. Bathrooms better than expected. Quiet area. Parents across the hall in room 9720 with balcony. Very nice room with full or queen bed. Rooms close to gym area but not noisy. Back of ship.

We had an inside cabin, but it wasn't the small walk-in close sized cabin. It was a decent sized cabin, with a couch and a desk. We weren't too cramped, and enjoyed having our space even though we were together. We were towards the aft of the ship, and really liked the quiet location. We didn't hear much running as we have had from the kids on past cruises. We fell asleep the moment our head hit the pillows, after a long day of fun in the sun.

We had an inside cabin, fully wheelchair accessible.  Largest w/c cabin I've ever been in; great turning radius.  Well done but needed more shelves in the bathroom.  There actually was hot water in the bathroom not just lukewarm!  Twin beds and full-size pullout bed in couch - and still room for turning!  Except for shelves, and a bump in the floor near the bathroom door, the cabin was perfect.  The bed, however, was a torture rack.  It was both very hard while sagging at the same time!?  They kept bringing me foam toppers until I felt like the Princess and the Pea, and still it was very uncomfortable.  I've never experienced this to such a degree before!  They seem to be low on linens, and despite repeated requests, we didn't get a laundry bag until mid-week.

Tiny closet was tight for two. Would have been impossible for the 4 it could have slept. 145 sq ft.

We had an inside cabin in J category (8153) which was the 2nd time we had it. As always the cabins are small but was enough for 2 adults and 2 small children (7, 4). My one complaint with the cabin is that the walls are PAPER thin and you can hear EVERYTHING through them. So when the neighbors come in yelling at their kids you can hear every word. My guess is that that's probably common among may cruise ships.
