The cabin was small. We only got 1 night of turndown service. The water was $8-10 per bottle and if you wanted room service you had to pay an extra $7.95 fee, unlike Royal Caribbean who doesn't charge a fee unless it is after 12 midnight to 5 AM which is is then only $3.95. I did not like the fabric shower curtain, water still got all over the floor of the bathroom. Plus fabric has the capacity to carry many more germs than a hard surface. Read entire member review >>
I preferentially choose inside cabins. I love the cave darkness. In a prior life my ex insisted on balocony rooms. Now I wouldn't take a balcony unless I were going to somewhere like Alaska. Think about it, how often are you really on your balcony... Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very small and out dated. Our sink was partially clogged - but wasn't so bad that I felt the need to call guest services. The shower was so small - easily the biggest drawback for me the entire cruise. The water pressure from the shower head felt like I was cleaning myself under a kitchen sink. The cabin was clean though - the carpet seemed very new, and our designated room cleaner was a very nice guy & did a great job with such an old room. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine, people complain that they can't move in the small inside cabins, but honestly it had plenty of room to sleep and shower. I guess if you plan on spending your cruise in your cabin I would recommend a bigger space, but it really was fine! Read entire member review >>
We dont expect an inside to be great because you buy it just for the price. I did like the shower amenities.We had flooding issues from the moment we stepped in. No attendant found till next day. Brought in wet extracter. But it continued. We ended up getting better results from putting towels down. But when they were getting wet we knew a serious problem. Customer service did contact us but we were on our way to dinner. After a long day with a show, then walking, and dancing, we come back to a room at 12:45 that was about 90 degrees, huge humidfier, wet extracter, and bucket with 2 inches of water, blocking our way to even get in. Furious I went down to front desk and she said housekeeping said it was my fault as I left shower curtain out and water went all over. I know full well NOT to do that as we have a BandB. After I said BS and said you are basically calling me a liar, she threatned security. By the time we went back, the equipment was being removed yet it took 90 min to cool down room. Even the sheets were hot! The following morning we did get moved across the hall, but it took 5 attempts to get the key to work and the safe didnt work so it had to be drilled out and a new one put in. Come to find out there was a serious blockage as every time to sink and toilet was used you could see water backing up. Read entire member review >>
cabin was 8 foot 9 inches wide by 17 foot 9 inches long. the twin beds were combined into a queen . plenty of drawer and closet space for one person a short casual ( no formal nights) cruise. Read entire member review >>
Cabin furnishings show some wear but not bad at all. Roomy enough for 3, my son said the pullout sofa was very comfortable. The pullout is a bit tricky with getting to bathroom at night, but not really an issue. Comfy beds, spotlessly clean (Mario is an excellent cabin steward!). I was apprehensive about having an inside cabin as I have never sailed in one before, and it was cozy, quiet, and we all slept quite well. I would book an inside again, as it was an excellent price and we had everything we needed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small (that was expected) but plenty of room for storage. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Hardly any noises at night that disturbed my sleep. Only a few room doors slamming was heard. Would recommend this room! Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small and hard to fit in 3 girlfriends. Deck is in between deck 6&7... So you have to take the elevator to deck 7 and then go down stairs to deck 6a. Very confusing until you get used to it. Read entire member review >>
Later, I went back to the stateroom to check it out in more detail. It as in 6306, deck 6a, which is between decks 6 and 7 so you have to go down from deck 7. It seemed like a quiet area of the ship but my immediate neighbors made a bit of noise on the last night which ended around 1am. The cabin itself did not feel claustrophobic even though it was inside. It had a double bed. There was good space for mostly everything but not much drawer areas. There was a pull out sofa where a 3rd person can sleep, but if you pull it out, you block the bathroom access for one of the other persons on the bed. My only complaints were that the white bedspread and a pillow case had 2 small black stains, looked like charcoal or maybe a pen spilled out its ink. I think a sheet had a similar small stain too. The stateroom looked clean but did not smell clean. The bathroom had a slight scent of urine. I think they should use cleaners with stronger "fresh" or "floral" scents. The doorknob to the bathroom was missing but you could still open it with the stub. Everything else was good. Bed was firm without being hard, but I guess that is personal preference. Air and water temperature control worked great. I saw my cabin stewardess many times, unlike other passengers have said and she was always nice and greeted me by my name. Read entire member review >>
nice bed- bow of ship. Mini couch pulls into bed, Son 5 "10" 185 says it kills his back. Room is nice and quite. Bathroom door was rusting out on the bottom and the metal grate was sticking up on all four corners. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7313 was perfectly located on the 7th deck. Everything on this ship was located on deck 7 so we really found it to be a convenient location. Close to the elevators and kids camp. Read entire member review >>
The deck 6A does not have elevator access- to some that may be a problem, but it wasn't an issue for us. The cabin was adequate, although with a third bed extended it did mean jumping over the bed to get to the other two beds. Quite cramped for three passengers, would not reccomend for any cruise over a week in length, but for three nights, it wasn't an issue. The toilet was quite large for a cabin of this size, and the shower, though tiny, was not minuscule. My father, who isn't the smallest of people, managed to shower there comfortably.

Although it's right by the video arcade and children's area, we didn't have any issues with noise. It was also far enough away from the lobby where that wasn't an issue either. Wish they had an iron and ironing board in the room. Conditioner would have also been nice. (The shampoo alone dried my hair out.) Read entire member review >>
Inside Cabin...bring a night light..The bathroom light switch might be wired backwards. The light to show you where the switch is only come on when you turn the light on...not real helpful in the dark! Thin walls we heard the fight from the cabin behind and to the left of us. ROCK HARD BED. Broken & old pullout couch. Outlet in bathroom doesnt work. Read entire member review >>
Room was very small, tiny bathroom, toilet lid must be shut to flush. Hair dryer was located in the desk near the Bible, not in the bathroom. Enjoyed the towels arranged like animals each evening. Read entire member review >>
We were disappointed with the size of the room. It was REALLY small. Our room 5108 was supposed to be a 147 sq. ft. "Superior Inside" Stateroom, Category JJ. While they categorize 5108 as a 147 sq. ft., "Superior Inside" on ncl.com, I believe it is really only 121 sq. ft.—the same size as the Category N "Inside" (non-Superior) Staterooms, such as Cabins 5101, 8114, 8315. We were disappointed that the deck plans on ncl.com were not completely accurate and that room 5108 is mis-categorized as a 147 sq. ft. "Superior Inside", when it should be displayed as a 121 sq. ft. "Inside" Stateroom.
There was barely any room to walk, there was one shelf and three tiny drawers in the closet under the safe, the closet itself was small with only 2 compartments versus 3 on Carnival, but there were plenty of hangers.
On a good note, Room 5108 is right behind the elevator and we heard absolutely no noise. Read entire member review >>
We did enjoy the comfortable beds and comforters. The room temperature was comfortable. The room was small but servicable. We really didn't plan on spending much time in the room, but due to the lack of activities, we ended up spending more time than expected in the room. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was in a great location near the elevators and directly below the pool deck. It was quiet and cold. The beds were somewhat hard but the room steward was able to bring a mattress pad that made them more comfortable. This cabin had a very small closet and only a few tiny drawers. Luckily, we were able to shove everything under the bed!
We never did meet our room steward! They don't schmooze you like on other lines because the "service charge" is not negotiable. Read entire member review >>
7101...didn't even unpack the suitcase..;O) we didn't TOUCH the mini fridge..prices were OUTRAGEOUS!! i am guessing that they think if they can get you drunk enough you will drink and eat everything in the fridge and they will make a killing off the fridge alone..we stayed sober the entire time..sorry to disappoint..very nice room..found a pair of pearl earings behind the night stand the last day we were there..

Tiny but nice and clean, just enough space for 2 people. Worked well if you are not trying to do anything but sleep. Alot of noise from upstairs, i think the kids place is right above. Read entire member review >>
Tiny but sufficient closet for a short trip. Contained a small space. Bathroom was small but clean and shower functioned well.Hallway was relatively quiet. The stateroom was very close to dining, and casinos. Read entire member review >>
Great location. Very convenient to many popular spots on the ship like the theater, the dining rooms, the atrium bar, and the casino. Larger than the inside staterooms on some other ships. Read entire member review >>
