Mid-Ship Inside Cabins

Great for up to four guests, these staterooms come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed additional bedding to accommodate up to two more guests. Because these are mid-ship staterooms, you'll have easy access to everything fun and exciting on board.

Cabin 10667
May 2017
Very Unfortunate Cruise By: 1john1985
Terrible pulsating resonance. Had to change rooms to 8097 which was fine except for the drawer that would open whenever the ship leaned to starboard (took 3 days and 3 calls to get it fixed), hinge was detached and sticking out the entire cruise (didn't even call because it didn't affect much and didn't want to start the process for multiple calls again), had to stick pieces of folded up paper into gap between the ceiling and wall panels to stop the annoying vibration of the metal ceiling (it worked). They gave us a bottle of wine because we were "Bronze" Members. This was the most disgusting tasting wine me and my wife have ever tasted. Heard the same thing from many others.

College Spring Break By: MaddieMcGee
Our cabin was exactly like others I have stayed in. Inside, no window, and tiny. We did not spend much time in our room so quality was not what we were looking for. It was always well attended to and even when we had an issue with our safe someone came to fix it pretty quickly.

Not impressed By: rosepate
Location of cabin was fantastic but it ended there. This was the tiniest cabin we have ever stayed in comparison to 3 other inside cabins on different lines. The bathroom was the largest part of the room. The shower was roomy but that was it. Really not large enough for 2 people let alone the 3 they advertise with a wall pull down! I could not even imagine. Maintenance wise considering they just did a refurb we were surprised that we had some issues. 2 drawers were deafeningly squeeky, closet light was burnt out, they had to also come change the mini bar light. Our toilet as well stopped flushing twice -- once did not rectify itself and we had to get it looked at. They did however send us chocolate covered strawberries for this inconvience.

Worse cabin we have ever been in on 10 cruises. If you want to go don't get an inside cabin. No where to sit except bed. Could not open closet without moving bed to get access.

Cabin 11109

Noisy. All night. Moved to #11609, same exact problem. People/cabins should not be located under such noise. Finally moved to #8122 which was quiet, but much smaller.

Cabin 10157
Mar 2016
An interior that looked just like the photos on the NCL website. It was fine for two men. While it did have a fold down third bed, three would have been a little too "cozy". There was sufficient storage for clothes. We placed our luggage under the beds. The bathroom was stocked, we always had fresh towels and it had a sliding door for the shower.

Cabin 10663
Feb 2016
Small. Springs for a "pop-up" bed were stored under one of our beds. When we asked to have them removed we were told that our luggage could be stored elsewhere than in our room. Unacceptable! We should not have to give up limited storage space in a cramped cabin so that the cruise line can store their surplus equipment under our beds. We insisted that the surplus equipment be stored elsewhere and spent the first day tripping over suitcases waiting for some action.

Great time By: RRB2754
142 sq ft. is small with 1 chair. unless your lucky to get a bed that was recently replaced , then think about the ship cruises 365 days a year times how many years before they upgrade. the bed was well worn and saddled, plenty of pillows, temperature regulates nicely. shower room is fine unless you are very oversized. TV is ok, I didn't cruise to watch TV. they provide liquid soap and shampoo, Kleenex and toilet paper is provided. I did give John our cabin person an extra tip as he did a great job. These people work very hard and very long days

Cabin 10101
Apr 2015
Room was fine. Bathroom was good and I had read ahead of time that the bathroom was better than most and I would agree with that as far as size goes. The cabin stewards have 17-18 rooms each to take care of. Our steward was very nice and no complaints about that. Just didn't get the room done in a timely fashion. One day I didn't have him do it at all because most days we had to actually get out of the room for him to make it up or turn it down which was a pain in the you know what. I have NEVER had this happen before.

Cabin 4575
Mar 2015
Since I was concerned about sea sickness and cost conscience, we selected a cabin in the middle of the ship as low as possible. Our cabin location was on a small hallway off the main passageway. We liked it since it was surrounded by other cabins but away from people walking through the passageway. The space was small but well designed. It has good storage space and a small safe for money and valuables. The bathroom area was also well designed and I was impressed with the shower. With the beds pushed together, there was just enough space to walk around the bed. The only downside to the interior cabin was the lack of a place for both of us to sit and enjoy room service.

Cabin 4011
Mar 2015
We went with the bottom of the line room. We spent the money on the drink and dining packages instead. Our room was great though. Literally not a single complaint. It was deep inside the ship on the lowest deck, but that was perfect for getting on and off the ship since that happens on deck 4.

Cabin 10053
Oct 2014
I wouldn't get an interior room again, my husband and I are not big people and we had 2 small children and being cramped in that room it felt like we were on top of each other and it wasn't relaxing at all. We were able to take advantage of the children sail 'free' (still paid taxes and fees, and gratuity) so that saved , if we had paid for them in full I wouldn't have been happy with the value .Our room stewart Raul was excellent, he was actually the highlight of the cruise. He was very engaging and courteous. He was great with our kids and would hide the towel animals so the kids would look for them, they thought it was the best. They actually say they miss Raul! Every morning our kids wanted to go find Raul and say good morning. Raul was excellent with cabin upkeep, our room was always spotless and our towels were always replenished. He always checked in to see if there was anything we needed and how we were enjoying our trip. One time I had come down to the room with my hands full and he stopped what he was doing to open the door for me, a very courteous and outstanding professional. I honestly felt like out of all my interactions with the staff that he genuinely enjoyed his position and cared about his guests.

Cabin 10655

Another great destination cruise By: freedomatlast99
Inside cabin selected on this one as I expected very little scenery between destinations. That was largely the case other than for the large waves caused by the winds. No concept of time when in an inside cabin though (first time traveling that way) and would wake up having no idea what time it was. In a suite they give you a large digital illuminated clock. They can put those to better use in the inside cabins instead! May be the most economical way to travel but going forward I will go no lower than a room with a window view. More than enough space in the cabin for what was needed though indeed compact. Beds were not as comfortable as on some other trips but more than adequate.

Cabin 10661
Jun 2013
Cabin 10661 is an inside on Deck 10 centrally located near the main elevators. We found the room very quiet. The room is of course on the small side but that is to be expected. No problems with the rooms, all was in order. Two people is fine. Three would be a squeeze. Four would be impossible. A chair and table are in the room but we just laid in the beds when we were in the room. Bathroom is tight when sitting on the toilet for us longer legged folk. Water pressure and temp was superb. The only problem with the centrally located rooms on the Dawn is that the central elevators are incredibly inefficient due to the small size of the elevators and the ship's design and traffic patterns. We found ourselves walking to the forward or aft elevators whenever possible and usually using the stairs if we were only going up or down 1-3 floors. But that is less about the room and more about its location. This is a very quiet floor and worth upgrading from the cheapest rooms if noise is a concern.

Cabin 10159

Not much storage- but adequate for an inside cabin. Equidistant from two midships elevators on the starboard side. No bizarre noises or leaks. Comfortable beds but a shower door that was basically transparent.

Had a great time! By: retiring soon
Cabin 10105 was in a good location close to the mid ship elevators & was served by a great steward Rainhard. We never heard any noises so it was good for sleeping.

Avoid the NCL Dawn By: snorkelgirl1
typical inside cabin. I was only occupant so size was fine. Had a "fold down" bed on bulkhead, and cannot imagine anyone having three people in the room. Size was as expected. Found the bathroom larger and better designed than others. Shower doors extended to form enclosure, vs curtains, which I likes. Flat screen TVs' on/off button glows so strongly at night, that I used duct tape to cover it so I could sleep. Closet has good location and temperature control was accurate and functioning.

Cabin 10607

10607 was a very comfortable room. It is laid out sideways as it is the last room in the group. I loved that room. It was quiet at night even though it was close the the atruim elevators, I was surprised.

cabin set up needs to be changed if there is three or more in a room, we had three people and we all had to end up sleeping in the one lower bed in order to watch tv.

Cabin 10561
May 2011
10559 - Inside stateroom that slept 4 Family of four in an inside stateroom. At night it was almost wall-to-wall beds. We were on a 10-day cruise so we had a lot of clothes with us. We were able to store all of our luggage underneath the beds but didn't have much shelf or drawer space for all of us. Only 1 bathroom space. Toilet, sink and shower stall all together.

Cabin 10159
May 2010
Cabin 10159 The cabin was very adequate for all our belongings and we heavily over packed. I recommend bringing an over the door (clear pocket) shoe organizer for those with lot`s of toiletries. Put it over the bathroom door and you will easily find all your lotions & potions at your fingertips.Our luggage fit under the one bed.We requested egg crate mattresses on our beds and extra pillows pre-cruise.We found this cabin location very convenient to the elevator and we liked being mid ship. We had no noise issues.

Cabin 10563
May 2008
Inside cabin on deck 10. It was a nice room with a great bathroom, loved the shower with tile floor and real doors! The wood is nice but creaks a lot when at sea making it hard to sleep. Plenty of storage for 2 people but not made for more than that. Beds are hard but they are supposed to be upgrading them very soon.
