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.
Cabin 4150 is a French Door Interior. Near the atrium elevators it proved to be very handy. Typical and identical to a balcony room with the exception that it is a french door rather than a balcony. This room, as of April 2017 had a crt television. The cabin next door 4152 had a flat screen TV.
We had a mobility scooter rented from Special Needs at sea. It was a Pride Victory 10. We needed to remove the arm rests to be able to access the cabin. The wheels scraped the doorframe on one side and the door on the other but it DID fit inside. Read entire member review >>
Large cabin with French Doors that actually opened and had terrific black-out curtains. NO view except for the center of a life boat! There is only 1 outlet in the room. No night light in the bathroom & room is dark. Room is very convenient to Taj Mahal theater and elevator. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4105 is the first cabin in the front with the nose of a lifeboat in front of the french doors (which do not open). Quite good for an obstructed view. You can see the deck below and the water below that and you can look forward to see the sky. We were happy with it as this time of the year does not lend to sitting on a balcony, considering you are ashore 3 of the 7 days and the first and last day are too cold and windy to sit on a baclony. Close to the front elevators to go to the 10 deck to walk and hang out. Cabin is very large. Read entire member review >>
Nice having fresh air. Balconies in the wind dont do much for me anyway. (and it was quite windy quite a few days) Bed blocks door. Room could be laid out better. ONE plug. Just soap in this room- no other toiletries. Clean. Fridge is a cooler not a fridge- not that cold, cant be adjusted. Room service is VERY slow. Plenty of storage in cabin- no shelf at all for stuff in shower. Bed isnt awful but they just push the twins together and throw a sheet on- I remember a top layer, covering the split before. Cheap thing to remove from the bedding. Read entire member review >>
Very loud. Right above the Ivory Piano Bar. Could hear every note and word of every song until closing time at 12:30am. Piano Bar includes audience singing/shouting along with the performer (TC). The parts where the audience shouted were the worst.
The wife, kids, & I all had problems falling asleep with the noise. Read entire member review >>
We had an interior stateroom with French doors and obstructed view. We usually do an interior so it was nice to have some natural light. The room also seemed to have a little more space than a regular interior and there was plenty of closet and storage space. Read entire member review >>
I chose this cabin because I knew the view was exactly between 2 lifeboats. The cost is less than an ocean view room and only a little more than an inside cabin so it was worth it to us. Read entire member review >>
We did not have a view (except of our life boat), but it was nice to be able to open the door to check the weather or let in fresh air. The room did seem a tad bit bigger than other interior or ocean view type rooms as we had both a vanity and a couch in the room with plenty of space to walk around. While I enjoyed this room, I probably wouldn't pay much extra for it in the future (ours was a $40 upgrade offer). Read entire member review >>
This cabin is wheelchair accessible and sleeps 2. It was a wide, automatic door that opens when you insert your card into the door reader; there is also a door opener on the inside of the cabin to make entering or exiting in a wheelchair very easy. The bathroom is large with a roll in shower (with a sturdy shower seat), a sink you can roll under and the toilet has grab bars on the left side and behind it. There are several grates in the shower area for the water to go down but beware that they do seem recessed into the floor about a half inch (so the wheels of the wheelchair got stuck a couple of times). There is also a slight lip coming in/out of the bathroom (it’s probably just that the door frame is a little out of alignment so it creates a bump), nothing major but it takes a bit of effort to roll over. The cabin also has the standard table and desk area along with a chair. There is less storage in this cabin than in a traditional cabin with one side of the cabinet for hanging (and the life jackets are stored at the bottom so it’s not quite as long) and one side of the cabin with shelves. There are only 3 small drawers (the top drawer has the hair dryer in it). The cabin is also close to the aft elevators which made it convenient for everything that was midship or aft (but it took a bit to get to the forward show theatre or the Butterflies lounge). For most wheelchair users, this cabin is very good. There are emergency pull cords in the bathroom and by the bed, and turn around space for a wheelchair or scooter. Read entire member review >>
It was nice to be able to open 1 of the doors since the bed is in the way but would be better if you could actually keep the door open with out having to stand there and hold it the entire time. Read entire member review >>
The rooms was made up in a king configuration, but the previous had the layout of the room with twin beds, the Pullman/bunk from the ceiling, and sofa made up as a bed. This setup would be idea for a family with small children, but I wouldn't recommend it for a family with teens. The room allows for sunlight and air from the french doors which open inwards, and the view is between two lifeboats which is partially blocked, but well worth the price for this cabin. Three closets for clothes storage, along with four drawers at the vanity, and two large drawers under the sofa/sofa bed. Large suitcases fit under the bed easily. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, the French Doors were almost entirely between the life boats. Very close to the Mid ship elevators. The only laundry facilities on this floor are at the very back of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Great room for an interior price. French doors that open and you can see out between the life boats. Only bad thing was an annoying loud creaking with the ships movements but that is to be expected. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin! The view from the French Doors was HIGHLY obstructed but we knew that beforehand. The cabin with French Doors was a free upgrade for us and it was really nice to have the door open at night for fresh air and the sound of the ocean. Not quite as good as a balcony but for free it was great! Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4140, Category 4K, obstructed view (lifeboats) but rate is same as inside cabins. Floor to ceiling door. Try to get a room in between the lifeboats and you actually have a view. You can see this on the deck plan. We had 4140 and our friends had 4148, both of which were in between the boats. It was as good as an outside cabin (no balcony). The room had more storage space than I've ever had on a cruise, both in the room itself and in the bathroom. Good location, somewhat centrally located. Read entire member review >>
Very large, as large as a suite. It has an obstructed window but you can still see out the window to the ocean and sky. Okay location and has doorbell. Be careful not to accidentally press the emergency button behind the bed, you will get a phone call. Read entire member review >>
