We've learned. Inside Cabins are a GREAT BARGAIN!! We are only in them about 8/hrs. a day, tops. New fixtures and carpets and whatnot are on par with ALL the other Non-suite rooms in the ship. We've went from 1 Cruise/yr. with a large Balcony to 2 Cruises with inside Cabin for the same $$$Cost$$$. But each to their own. Inside Cabin far forward...THAT'S our choice in recent years. 8008 served us well. Great attendants too. Read entire member review >>
I think they call it a large, it's one of the higher priced interiors if you pay full price. It's actually one of the smaller interiors, though. Our cabin was 10024, part of a group of new cabins on Observation Deck 10. Those cabins are convenient to the Crow's Nest, Lido Deck, forward sun deck (past the private cabanas), and the Explorations Cafe/Library. Number 10024 is an inside with a window! The window overlooks a narrow walkway between the port and starboard sides of the Observation Deck. Past the walkway is the cover for the Lido pool. We didn't open the curtains much because people on the walkway could see inside our room. I really liked the location. My DH didn't like it because it was a long walk to the Promenade Deck. He thought it was too high and too far forward.
The group of cabins on this deck are very small, the only storage for clothes is the closet, two smaller-than-normal drawers at the foot of the bed, and two nightstands. We always bring extra hangers, so clothing storage was not a problem. There is no dresser and no couch, but the fixtures and furniture are all new, so new the rooms aren't on the ship map. The inside cabins have a full length counter in the bathroom and a small shower, no bathtub. Read entire member review >>
I'm not too sure which category we were in, as it was a guarantee cabin, but it was a large cabin. Plenty of storage. We were met by our attenders, Fadil and Munir, very nice boys. When my husband was sick, worked around him, if and when he wanted the cabin cleaned, they were there.
When we first start a cruise, we all ways let them know, we will not be using the drinks in the fridge, and could they remove all drinks, as we use the fridge for Meds, and milk for night Meds. This they have always done, what every the cruise line.
The fruit bowl was always full, the ice bucket too. Read entire member review >>
~ Our stateroom was spacious, clean with very comfortable bedding, although the bed for the third guest in our room--my elderly mother--was just a pull-out, cot-style bed. Our stateroom stewards were excellent, very efficient and accomodating as they could possibly be, but they could not provide an in-room clothing iron, and we needed a room fan since the A/C was not cool enough for our liking.
