The cabin we selected was nice. Warm though, never seemed to cool off. The room did smell like a sweaty body slept on the couch but I never go far without my Lysol. The remote only worked if you stood right in front of the TV. The bed was comfortable and clean. The refrigerator was cool not cold. The bathroom a little small compared to RCL and Disney.

The cabin was as expected. The "sweet spot" on the flush bar for the toilet was more difficult to find than it should have been.

Not for Us bonmarche
The cabin was nice, but there were no drawers to stack your clothes. There were drawers under the couch, but they had extra blankets and pillows in them, so they weren't really usable. The bathroom was large for a cruise ship. There was actually room to sit on the toilet without putting your feet in the shower. The bed was OK, but I really dislike the duvet being wrapped in a sheet because when I get hot at night, I have no covers to throw off unless I unwrap it. Another thing I dislike is that the bottom sheet is ALWAYS coming undone. Why don't they get fitted sheets?

Great vacation! xugreatone
Great room - small balcony. Says it fits 3-4. We had 2 and it was fine - but had we had 3 to 4, I would have definitely felt cramped. Bed was pretty comfortable, but my fiancée felt it was a bit hard. Limited TV stations for when you're in the room. Not a lot of drawer space for storing clothes. Take a surge protector as you only have 2 outlets and they only work if your key card is in the slot by the door. I read that advice online prior to the cruise and was glad I did. If you have the ability - download a TV show or some movies to your Kindle/iPAD prior to the cruise to have some entertainment options if you don't feel like leaving the room. Bring a deck of cards or some other games if you like those as well.

We were in cabin 10278. I liked the port side as you can see South Beach leaving Miami and view the fireworks from your balcony. I did not mind the cramped space entering into the closet as it was next to the couch and not the bed. I did not mind the small balcony either because this is the first time we had one therefore I have nothing to compare it to. I liked the roomy shower. I chose this cabin as it was very near the elevator. I would recommend choosing a cabin with a triangle shaped balcony as it is definitely larger. I purchased some Eco Pads for the 1 cup coffee maker and brought my own coffee. In hindsight I think the cabin steward would have given me more coffee had I requested it and the coffee they provided was good. Brought our own pop as it is more economical and the cruise line only has Pepsi products. I had the steward empty the refrigerator so I could utilize it. I requested an egg crate foam mattress for the converted couch as it is not comfortable. I brought along a small power strip as there are only two outlets. I also brought along a fake credit card to place in the main outlet to provide constant power to the cabin. I had to pilfer washcloths from our cabin stewards cart as there were none in my cabin. Oddly, I saw another gentleman having to do the same thing.

Feel free to email me at cleanandsober88@hotmail.com if you have any inquiries.

Stateroom Attendant - "invisible" and went above and beyond the call of duty.
Room Layout - didn't mind that our stateroom was smaller than usual, but only 2 outlets, no drawers, very small balcony. There were additional storage features but not the most accessible.

Ample room and storage for 2. Would be tight for 3. The balcony overlooks the tiered balconies on decks 7,8,and 9 so you can look down and see other guests. The bed was comfortable, the couch however is barely tolerable.

Our Balcony (BD) on Starboard 10 Forward was very clean, washroom was a good size (for a cruise) and bed was comfortable. The mini-fridge was always stocked, and wasn't loud, and our balcony cabin had a coffee maker as well. The hair dryers provided are 1800 watts and worked fine, and the shower had shampoo and body gel. Each room does not have an iron, but if you call your steward they will provide one for free for a max of two hours per day. There was plenty of storage space under the couch for our clothes, and the washroom offered a lot of shelving. However I can't say our boys had nearly the same amount of storage in their interior cabin. We travelled with our two teenage sons, and therefore wanted a separate cabin for them to stay. Their room was located in a separate hallway with only interior rooms in that hall, however they were on the same deck, and no more than forty feet away from our room.
However, I will say that we noticed in both rooms that you could faintly hear conversations in the next room if you were close to the door. Overall, the rooms had a nice layout, and were a good size.

Mixed Feelings clancy43

Cabin was quite adequate with lots of storage. Bath was nicely sized. Regular hairdryer which was appreciated. Enjoyed the balcony quite a bit. Bed was hard, but much better with an egg crate ~ available at your request. I took additional hangers, I think there were about a dozen there. Power is activated by key card which was a neat thing ~ lol, helped me keep up with the key card! Also, had switches for "do not disturb" and "make up room". Very happy with room and steward.

Good Not Great HoosierCruiseFamily

Stateroom was immediately available with no waiting. The roses I ordered for my wife (beautiful) were in the room when we arrived. Extra clothes hangers provided upon request. The cabins were smallest we have seen. Balcony also very tiny. Counter and storage very tight but manageable. Some of the ladies complained about minimal lighting in the bathroom. The family cabin on deck 5 was more spacious and easily accommodated family of five. All of us on deck nine near our room 9894 (aft) were routinely awaken by banging and clanking from nearby service elevator.
