TINY....minimal counter/shelf space. Mirror mounted too high to be used as a vanity mirror. Should have small chair to slide under. One stool used for sitting/table/ottoman .....used for room service tray.....no place to set down coffee cups or plates. Table between beds was so narrow....maybe 8".. no glass of water, or eye glasses could be left on it overnight. Pillows swept everything off. Read entire member review >>
Didnt spend a lot of time in cabin since there was so much to do on the massive ship. Juana, our housekeeper was very attentive to our needs. Had her empty our mini bar. We had a small issue with the power outlets not working. She addressed right away. Very comfortable bed. Balcony was a little small but it suited our needs for coffee in the morning. Not big enough to hang out in especially if you have other people on the ship with you Read entire member review >>
The cabin configuration is strange, we had a balcony on deck 10. There are no drawers and the closet is 6 inches from the bed and runs the length of the bed. The balcony is tiny. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was 10222 and it was a balcony stateroom. I was very pleased with the lay out and the functionality of the room. The bathroom was good in size plus very functional. I give the design of this stateroom two thumbs up! The only issue i had was the balcony was a little smaller than expected. But it wasn't a deterrent for a great cruise that we had.

The cabin was a good size we were only two in our cabin. My daughters had there children in with them so the room is a little smaller. We had a balcony which that's the only way to go, gives you a little more room and it's nice to sit and have your coffee in the morning or drink at night and enjoy the ocean view.

Perfect location. Right off the elevators, one floor above the waterfront. I didn't like not being bale to look straight down to the water.. but I knew booking this rooms there would be an overhang. The room steward was excellent. Always kept room clean, full ice bucket, and plenty of towels.
Plenty of room for suitcases under the bed. Plenty of hangers for two with mostly hanging clothes. Only drawers were under the sofa.. did not like this aspect. I like to un pack and having mostly shelf space was awkward.
About 2 am we had a drunk knocking on doors one night of cruise. Other than that one occurrence we never had a noise problem. Read entire member review >>
It was the perfect location and shockingly large with ample storage. The balcony had 2 chairs and a small table, perfect for relaxing with coffee/wine. We didn't have any neighbors smoking and blowing our direction as other reviews had. Our room was exceptionally clean and well cared for. Our room stewart cleaned in the am and turned down the room at night. Always ample towels, etc. Read entire member review >>
Positives: Cabin steward keep room immaculate at all times and was always there if we needed him. Loved the balcony overlooking ocean. Room size was adequate for two people.
Negatives: Original vacation consisted of four people...never would have happened in that room. Sleeping area would have worked...but clothing and personal items space was not even enough room for two. Lack of outlets especially in bathroom. And the inability to charge cells, laptops and i-pads overnight. When lights go out...no power in outlets. Read entire member review >>
Great! Plenty shelves and cupboard space in the cabin as well as in the bathroom to put our things out of sight. Our cabin employee, Ray, was excellent. It wasn't long before he knew our names and the names of our neighbors who happened to be our dance friends. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in a terrific location, just a floor or two from all the action. The balcony is terrific for enjoying the view. We had plenty of space for our things.
Be advised - You might want to avoid booking a balcony room toward the front of the ship on decks 8 through 10, because people on the boardwalk might be able to see your balcony and you won't have much privacy. Read entire member review >>
CABIN 8176Rooms were ready around 130pm, and our room was in a perfect location. Deck 8 mid-ship balcony room, super close to elevators, easy access to the waterfront which is also on deck 8, and 90% of all the restaurants and bars. Ocean view was great. No life boats or anything obstructing the views. A lot of people were commenting on the size of the balconies for the regular balcony rooms, saying they were super small. It all depends on what you want your balcony for. If you are like us, and just wanted a balcony to stand on or sit down on while you enjoy a light snack and/or a glass of wine or coffee while watching sunrises/sunsets, than the balcony size was perfect. 2 chairs, a little table, and enough leg room for 2 average sized people. If you want a balcony for lounging on, sun tanning, having dinner on, then I would go for one of the larger balcony rooms. For us, the balcony wasn't going to be a place where we would spend a ton of time. There are plenty of areas on this ship for you to really enjoy the outdoor spaces. This cabin had the bed closest to the balcony, which made the room feel quite large actually. There was tons of storage space, lots of hangers, the bathroom was very functional and provided more than enough room for 1 person at a time to get ready, while the other person could use the main cabin area for getting ready. All in all, this cabin was great and provided everything we needed. I would stay in this cabin again! Our room steward Agnelo was friendly and kept our room clean and always stocked with what we needed. We aren't very demanding guests, and he definitely picked up on that and kept things simple and efficient for us. Read entire member review >>
I have a history of bad motion sickness and picked the mid ship in lower deck with this in mind. Some would say the aft is also good but I did not want to take the chance. I also took zofran (ondansetron) once daily and did not have any problem. I had to take OTC anti-nausea once before bed on the 2nd night because the sea was really choppy, and found out many passengers had similar problem. The room was bigger than expected with plenty of storage space for 2. The bed was average. The room can be noisy from the ship rocking at night but not bad at all and I slept like a log. Our cabin steward Jonathan was professional, friendly and very efficient! My cabin mate randomly put her change of clothes on the bed while we went out to eat for an hour, came back to made up bed and clothes folded neatly on the nightstand! We felt bad and made sure to fold it ourselves. All the crew members are very hard working and deserve appreciation. I have no problem with tipping extra for good service! P.S. I would definitely get a balcony again and probably a balcony spa which is cheaper than getting a separate 1-week spa package ($200). Read entire member review >>
Room was ok. They put the closet and shelves along the length of one side of the bed. You have about 6-8 inches between the bed and closet. Also between the bed corner and TV/Refer/Coffee etc., cabinet you had about 8 inches. So you crab walked beside the bed for the closed and sat on the bed to get into it and the same to get through to the sofa and balcony. Nice to have refer and coffee pot. I thought there was a lot of storage for the two of us. They have a hassock that has storage that doubles as a table for in front of your sofa. You can take the wooden top off and use it as a tray if you want to bring food/drinks back from the Café. VERY NICE closing doors. When you closed the door to the balcony and put the lever up, it really shut out the outside noise. You put your key card in a slot when you come in the room and that lets you turn on the lights. If you don't put your card in you can't. Also has a button to push when you leave for housekeeping. Nice. TV service to see your bill, and what's going on etc. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice sized an well equipped. Balcony very small. You have to use your room key to operate room lights and air conditioning system, so if you want to listen to the waves at night forget it. Read entire member review >>
Small room, adequate storage, a little hard to get into closet, as so close to bed. Nice TV, balcony smallest I have ever seen, but functional, two chairs and a table. Doors close really good on balcony so you don't get the wind whistling when you are out at sea. No slamming either, and doors on your cabin open out into the hallway, something different.. Very clean, Shower was nice, had a door instead of a curtain, shaving bar for women, lots of storage. rooms are not very soundproof. could hear my neighbor snoring through the wall every-night. IF your a light sleeper, bring earplugs. Read entire member review >>
cabin was smaller than same style cabin we have had on other lines. Storage was terrible....nooks and crannies....not drawers....VERY SMALL BALCONY.!!!!!...Looks like they have figured out a way to make more balcony cabins to get more money from passengers...... Read entire member review >>
Our mini suite cabin was perfect for the 4 of us. They was plenty of room for clothing between the closet, the shelves, the drawers under the sofa, and the cabinets in the room. All suitecases fit nicely under the bed. The bathroom was fantastic! It had dual sinks and the shower was awesome. Read entire member review >>
