The balcony staterooms are gorgeous but we did not get one this time. The price differential is too high and we simply did not spend enough time in the stateroom to justify the added cost. Spent the money on the premium drink package instead and thoroughly enjoyed that instead. We did get the larger interior stateroom because having the extra space so we were not tripping over each other and our stuff was worth it. The bed was comfortable. Pillows were a bit flimsy. Bring a mini flashlight to find the bathroom in the middle of the night so you don't have to turn on the main cabin lights and wake everybody up. Our closet had lots of hangers - but we brought some of our own just in case. Suitcases will fit under the bed but only if they are less than a foot tall. One of ours did not fit - thank goodness for the extra cabin space to store it in one corner of the room. Read entire member review >>
The usual small room, just enough walking space to get to your bed when the sofa bed is pulled out. I'd prefer the sink not in the bathroom in case someone's on the toilet especially since there's no blower. The reception on tv during the NBA games was spotty. I wish they made characters out of towels every night, my kids really enjoyed seeing them. Read entire member review >>
We had a large interior cabin on deck 8. The location was perfect. Just down the hall from Central Park and down 3 floors to the Promenade. The room is a little small but had a decent sized closet with shelves. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom was adequate. Inside room but definitely not big enough for 4 (as advertised). I only sleep there so I didn't care about the size and amenities. There is NO shampoo or lotions supplied in the staterooms. Make sure to pack it! Read entire member review >>
The room was not large but housed a king sized bed, a sofa and the bathroom. We found it quite satisfactory except that the sofa was not comfortable. There was adequate storage especially as we brought three very large pieces of luggage and one small one. The cabin was very clean in all respects; the bathroom was immaculate and our cabin steward made up our room twice a day. Read entire member review >>
We love interior rooms because when it is hot in the Caribbean and the sun is beating on the windows, our room is staying cool. This was a great room as it was only a couple of floors under the Solarium and a quick elevator ride from the Boardwalk. I was concerned that there would be noise due to its location but there wasn't. Read entire member review >>
Very nice, it suited us well. Our cabin steward, Maria, was fantastic and very helpful. The bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of room to move around. The shower was very warm, great water pressure. I never felt claustrophobic or anything like that. We would like to get a balcony next time, though, because we would like to be able to sit on one at night. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very clean, steward was very attentive and bed was made constantly with fresh towels. Only bad happening was final day at 7:15 a.m. someone came into our cabin after a brief knock to look at the mini bar contents and we were not awake or dressed. Read entire member review >>
Room 8425 was on the Central park deck (the best), cozy, enough closet space, quiet location, the bed is against the left wall, so you both can' t walk around the bed at the same time. I would have preferred the bed against the back wall. The couch was practical and all the shelving was great! Read entire member review >>
We had Cabin 8418. We like Inside Cabins because we only spend time in our Cabin to Sleep and most of the Time we are out and about the Ship so why waste Money on a Balcony Cabin when we don't use the Balcony?
Also we like a Cabin on a dead end corridor so no loud foot traffic passes our cabin door.
I like sleeping in a Dark Room and not being awaken Early by the bright sunlight. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin had an adjoining door to the room next to us. We kept this door locked but found the passengers next to us trying to open this door several times throughout our trip. Read entire member review >>
