Interior accommodations are comfortable rooms furnished with standard amenities including two twin beds (can convert into one queen-size bed), private bathroom, vanity area, hair dryer, mini-bar, closed-circuit TV, radio and phone.
For a 12 night cruise, get a cabin with a balcony! We wanted to save money and go interior, but that is too little space for a family of 4 on a cruise this long. Also, without a balcony, it took clothing forever to dry. Spend the extra money!
Also, with 4 people in a cabin, we had to use the pull-down bunks. They were awful!! The mattresses were old and terrible, the ladders hurt your feet going up and down. Also, they creaked and sounded like they were going to fall down. Read entire member review >>
Upon entering the cabin, we were blown away by the size, given it was an Inside Stateroom. The layout was certainly unique.
However, I would have preferred a much smaller stateroom if it meant not having to hear the noise above us all night long. This cabin was located under the Minstrel dining room, and noise was non-stop during meal times. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than Carnival's but sufficient, enjoyed use of the refrigerator but mattresses need to be replaced. Did not requested an exchanged because they would have probably brought me another one that was returned from another passenger. Read entire member review >>
For an inside cabin this was plenty of room and of course the bathroom was the typical bathroom where the shower is so small it can be difficult to get your whole body clean.
The bed was as hard as a board very uncomfortable. Read entire member review >>
Roomy, with enough storage space. Comfortable, clean. No complaints. Nice location on the ship-- no noise. Easy to get anywhere on the ship quickly. Very good cabin steward. Excellent value for the money. Read entire member review >>
A decent sized cabin with two beds made up upon arrival (perfect as I was traveling with my adult son). Nice little seating area. Flat screen TV that could be pulled out & pivoted toward the bed. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. Fairly quiet. Read entire member review >>
Our room was an interior on deck 4. We really liked the location--close to the elevators, the Centrum, and the MDR. It was extremely quiet. The room sized was good with enough closets space, a sofa, and desk. Our steward was hard working and took good care of us. Read entire member review >>
Our inside cabin was a bit larger than I expected. The bedding was nice and the cabin steward did an excellent job. The toilet water was yellow. The maintenance guy said it wasn't a problem and that it sometimes happened. It happened pretty much all the time on our cruise. Also, I didn't like the shampoo, the bar soap was nothing special and there was no hand lotion or other toiletries. I have come to expect these nice bits of pampering on a cruise and found it lacking here.The in-cabin T.V. was horrible. The satellite feed was pixelated and the selection of channels was horrible. The worst part was that there were no movie channels and the pay per view movies were each $12 or $13 dollars. There were no free in-cabin movies. There is a nice stadium seating movie theater on the ship and we saw "Ghostbusters" one evening.The best part about the T.V. was it was a flat screen that could be flat against the wall or swung around to face the beds. We used it all night on the bow camera screen that gave us a view of when the sun came up and the weather outside. Also nice that we could monitor our shipboard expenditures right on the T.V. screen.

A good location, although the hallway was noisy at times. Shower a little on the small side, to accommodate a stool that I had put in there to help with showering.We would get the same location on the ship just at a higher level and with a porthole. Read entire member review >>
Excellent cabin choice - same deck as Guest Services, Minstrel dining room and Centrum bar! Equidistant between 2 sets of lifts - ideal for Pacifica Theatre end too! Quiet location and was more than adequate for 3. Read entire member review >>
