Inside Staterooms are the most affordable way for you 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.

Cabin 8515
Cabin is very small with barely any table surface for your knickknacks. We had our 2 beds together but realized that the 1 foot space between the bed and walls on each side were too tight to maneuver around and decided to split the bed up and enjoyed a whole 2 feet of space between the bed. It makes a huge difference. Bathroom is also small. Toilets facing the wall is practically right at your face. The shower is enclosed with glass, not curtains, and I tend to bang my elbows while showering. I am of average size, I don't see how oversize people is able to take their shower. Bed height is good to slide your luggage underneath it. LCD tv is small and very little to watch with a few channels from ship info to movies to CNN. There is a small safe in the closet to place your valuables in. Descent amount of closet and drawers for clothes. We brought a small night light and plugged it in the bathroom outlet for night time bathroom breaks, the room is very dark without it. Toilet didn't work for one night, called to have it fixed, and it was fixed within the hour. Cabin location was very quiet. It was away from the stairs/elevators and not above or below anything that was noisy like Garden Cafe, pool, or the main lounge. Both wife and I slept like babies. But you will notice ship motion, even with ships stabilizer.

Cabin 10211
I'm not sure of the cabin category. It was a modified (accessible) interior cabin on deck 10. We loved our cabin, which was an accessible interior, cabin 10211, deck 10. Our steward Jay was new and did a great job. He was friendly without being in our faces 24/7. Our cabin was large, since it's wheelchair accessible. There were 2 twins with 2 end tables, a small dining or card table with stool, a vanity area with chair & good size cabinet style closets with plenty of drawers and shelves. There was also a sofa with pull out bed. It felt hard, but it was nice to have that extra seating area. The TV was on the cabinet which housed the safe & mini fridge and had more drawers for storage. The TV swivels so you can watch it from the beds or the couch. The restroom was quite large, as was the shower, but there is no vanity, and there were only 2 small shelves. Bring an over the door plastic shoe holder so you can put your toiletries, etc in it. It seemed like the restroom would be difficult to access if you were in a wheelchair. The floor sloped up into the restroom, so it seemed like you'd have to get a rolling start to get up into it. And the door was not automatic. You would have to manually open it first.

Cabin might be rated as holding four people, but sometimes theory doesn't work well in reality!

Dirty Cabins and Privacy Violated lovetocruiseandsail
Cabin drawers did not stay shut while ship was moving. Cabin was dirty!! Crumbs and other debris on the floor, towels were stained and not replaced regularly, pillows smelled and glasses in the bathroom were not replaced with clean ones.

Good cabin, quiet, excellent steward. Big bonus, reasonably sized bathroom and a shower that had a sliding door and room to turn around in without hitting some protruding object that only ships designers include in a shower space.

Cabin 9567
Typical inside cabin. Room enough in the closets and drawers for all our clothes. Good water pressure, TV and lights worked fine. The beds were comfortable but not luxurious. Housekeeping was excellent.

Cabin 10557
Vacation Fun princesswriterkc
The only negative thing was we started off with too many people in our cabin. Guest services was able to get us another room and our steward made it up for us, and we enjoyed the animals made out of towels. Lots of fun there.

Cabin 12013
Loved the location as the Lido deck is so accessable, room a tad small but clean and completely sufficed, bathroom was comfortable size. No outside noise and our steward was excellent. we never make the steward cater to us daily unless needed, we realize how hard these people work and feel that if its just towels we need or garbage emptied we give them a break.

For an inside cabin, it was quite adequate. We cruise for the ship not so much the cabin.

Cabin 10015

Cabin smaller than Carnival Dream w/ less storage in rm and bathroom. For some reason we were in a 4 person rm w/ under bed pop up bed and wall mounted bed that took up even more space. Bed was very comfortable though. We had an unusually less than attentive cabin steward. He threw away papers we were keeping and was late almost every night w/ turn down and so we were often in rm and so he would just drop off towels and the daily schedule. Otherwise cabin was O.K.

Cabin 10509
Honest opinion dustin1970

cabin 10509 is good because it is a quiet area no noise unless next door are yelling........10 floor is good, never used elevators and 2 floors up is pool and buffet and 3 floors down is main level.

Cabin 10509

First time in an inside state room and pleasantly surprised. (Last time had a balcony room on NCL Jewel in 2012). Though lots of jokes were made about the size of the cabins, I found it rather cozy and ample, given the fact that you don't spend an enormous amount of time in them. Our cabin location was forward portside and worked out beautifully for all the time spent in the Stardust Theater, Casino, and Bimini Bar. I also found our bed to be very comfortable. I would add that for the two of us, we had tons of room for our suitcases and clothes in the closet space, pullout drawers, and shelves as well as ample room for our personal belongings in the bathroom area. I had much more room in this area as the toilet is angled toward the door allowing extra head and leg room rather than straight on in the Jewel Balcony bathroom. A-LO-HAAAAAA! :) The movies, comedies and ship's navigational info on the flat screen TV were fun to pass the time with. Also, our cabin steward, Rona, was a sweetheart, very friendly, and made the best towel animals!]

Cabin 12035
No more NCL for me HONDADULUTH
Our cabin was on Deck 12 and was an inside cabin. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom and enclosed shower was also very nice. The closets, drawers and shelves provided amply room for our clothes. The carpets weren't too clean, observed when we had to scrub up the red wine that we spilt. The cloth was black!!!! It was very noisy in the early morning (7:30 AM) as the cabin stewards would assemble their bins and start to get things ready to begin their day. We unfortunately had the room right at the corner where they assembled! When on vacation I don't usually start my day that early. We did like being on the 12th deck and not far from the Garden Cafe and the pool.

Cabin 10057
We had inside cabins and they were the smallest of any ship we've been on. The rugs were dirty. The showers are nice. The TV is too small and didn't work well (the satellite feed was always on the blink). There is not enough room to put your stuff. There is a wet bar which is nice. The cabin was noisy because the ship creaked constantly.
