Interior with French Door (obstructed views) Cabins
(185 sq. ft.) French doors with obstructed views. Two twin beds (convertible to king-size bed). Sofa and coffee table. TV; telephone; 110 AC current; individual climate control; wall safe; 3 closets; full bathroom with shower; hair dryer; mini bar.
So the photos online are not exactly accurate. However, it is a lovely stateroom, with French Doors which give you the illusion of "Outside" even if you can't see anything.
Everything is new, in well working order. I sleep and change bathing suits in the room so as long as there is space on the bed to pass out at 3am I'm good!! LOL! Read entire member review >>
This room was perfect. The french doors open to a life boat, but there was still a pretty decent view to the ocean. The bathroom was rather big and easy to get around in. Overall, the room was laid out well and very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Roomy and plenty of storage. The French Doors are great. Lots of natural light and fresh air if you open them up. No view though. Right behind the lifeboats. You can only see a sliver of sea and a sliver of sky, but we loved it and wish it were available on other ships. Read entire member review >>

Cabin was clean, we had doors that opened to get fresh air but had to put a bench in front of them to keep them open then could not walk around the bed. We had a view of one of the life boats. Good closet space for putting things away. Housekeeping did a wonderful job everyday. Read entire member review >>
We were in Room 4112, an Inside Room with an Obstructed View. This means that we paid the price of an inside room, but got a room with French doors that open inward, and a lovely view of a lifeboat. It was nice to be able to open the doors and get some fresh air and daylight. For such a small room (185 square feet), there was ample closet/drawer space. They really make efficient use of the space they have. And yes, you can use refrigerator magnets on the walls!We weren't far from the Phantom Lounge, where they had the big shows every night, and took advantage of the Phantom Lounge's fourth floor entrance. That being said, we never had any noise issues from other rooms or parts of the ship while we were trying to sleep. Read entire member review >>
Completely obstructed, but lots of light & fresh air from the french doors. Good storage, quiet, except when disembarking / embarking at ports (constant chiming of the sail & sign cards as the gangway is right below the cabin). It's only a factor when you keep the french doors open, if you want quiet to take a nap then close the doors & you won't hear the chiming. Fairly quiet, no noise from above or below - only from the outside - you could hear people on nearby balconies. No smoke smell drifting our way at all, thank goodness. The bathroom was the standard shower only small bathroom, but with decent storage. Mattresses in this cabin were starting to wear out & sag a bit in the middle, but still fairly comfortable. Not the rock hard mattresses I had on the Inspiration. Read entire member review >>
We have always booked an inside cabin. With the Miracle, the inside cabins, ocean view cabins, and most of the balcony cabins are all 185 square feet inside. With the deal our cruise travel agent found for us, we were able to try an obstructed ocean view cabin for the same price as an inside. Our cabin came with French Doors that had an obstructed view between lifeboats. You could open the doors to get fresh air. The curtains did not do a good job of blocking sunlight, so we would not use this type of room again. We prefer total darkness so can sleep in late when we desire that.
The cabin had more than enough room for the two of us. There were three closets. Two came with bars with 10 hangars each while the other closet had shelves. We stored our 2 large pieces of luggage under the beds. Since we had an ocean view room, there were two terry cloth robes for our use.
There is a safe and a small fridge in the cabin. The safe could only be locked with a credit card or a driver's license that had a magnetic stripe. We thought this was odd, since we did not need to have our credit cards on us while on the ship. You could not use your room keycard.
The bathroom had a shower with a cloth curtain with dispensers for body wash and shampoo. There was a soap dish. We were surprised that the shower area did not have a safety bar to hold on to. The hair dryer was located in a drawer by the mirror inside the room.
There was a small couch that had drawers underneath that contained extra pillows, blankets, and sheets.
The location of the cabin was only a few steps from the aft stairway on the Main deck. Read entire member review >>

Our cabin was the Inside Cabin with the French Doors on Deck # 4. We couldn't see anything outside, due to the lifeboats in our way, however, we did have the sunlight streaming in when it was morning. The cabin steward was wonderful, as well as his assistants. We couldn't ask for a better experience. The room was plenty big enough, and we had ample closet space, as well as ample room in the bathroom. The shower stall is tiny, with a shower curtain that followed me wherever I went in the tiny shower. I'm not complaining though. I am glad that we had that room category. Read entire member review >>
