Cabin 7147
Nov 2016
Perfect location for proximity to elevators, proximity to Versailles and Pharaoh venues, proximity to the children and teen hangouts. No engine noise and little vibration. Clean. Tons of space under the beds for our bags. Two closets with about ten hangers each and a lower railing for other things. Space for four pairs of shoes. Lights everywhere. Balcony sufficiently large. Bathroom was not as small as I expected and was well lit. Water temperate able to be precisely adjusted and left that way for next time. Hot water was instant. Lots of shelves for two people with all of their pamper products. Tons of towels. And a towel animal and turn down every night! We asked for room service to occur every night at the moment we went out to the Empire Dining Room. It was not a problem. For those who dine at the Empire: It is a five minute walk to the other end of the ship.

Good time was had by all By: farmnanna
We had two balcony staterooms. Good location forward starboard close to front lifts. They were clean and were cleaned well daily throughout our cruise. The bathroom was a good size and shower was hot. Water pressure could be better. Housekeeping staff were friendly and helpful.

Cabin was really good with no issues. We had a fold down bunk from the roof which added some functionality to the room

Fantastic staff By: Duanegalle
Great cabin, a little cramped with two kids (one in a porta-cot). The water pressure in the shower was lousy, but that's the only complaint. Our steward (Sharlene) was amazing!

Lots of fun By: wofftam
Cabin was large enough and located towards the back of the boat. I did notice not as much vibration in this spot as last time being mid ship. We were just around from the back elevator which took you straight up to deck 9 food hall.

Cabin 7153
Oct 2014
Excellent cabin, would book this one if we travel on Spirit again. It is unusual in that it and 7155 are two cabins ‘back’ or ‘indented’ from the rows of balcony rooms next to them. In our case, this meant there was an extra balcony wall belonging to 7151 which gave us a great wind break and more privacy on that side. The cabin was bright and spacious. There are a number of reviews already on the layout of this type of cabin so I will not go into it. The beds were the best we have had on a cruise ship, just the right amount of firmness, no sagging, with two decent square pillows and what appeared to be feather filled doonas. We took the advice from others and took along an occy strap and it worked a treat to keep the door open. We had a deck chair, an adjustable chair which turned into a ‘banana lounge’ style lie down, and a small table. Our cabin was attended morning and night (and numerous times during the day!) and was always spotless (we are not the type to leave clothes lying around, unmade beds, or pile up food and drink containers etc so keeping it clean and tidy was pretty easy for our steward).

Appropriate decor and facilities without being too elaborate. The cabin offered enough room and facilities although the TV is small and the remote did not work properly. Cabin service was exemplary - the room was always tidy and clean. Beds were comfortable, but I hate air-conditioning. Try propping the door open to stop the air-cond.The standard balcony was a little small but servicable.

Alaska is Awesome! By: cruzlover64
I thought the room was great - I was expecting a bunk and was pleasantly surprised by the soda turned bed. There was plenty of storage and we were not constantly tripping over each other and our belongings as we have had on previous cruise. A little surprise by the poor design of balcony dividing door - I would have thought they would have found a way to swing the divider up rather than to the side - having it swing up would allow an unobstructed view from both cabins.

Great mid-ship location - we had extended balcony last cruise but it's not worth the extra price.

Cabin 7132
May 2012
Cabin 7132 has an adjoining door to cabin 7136. They accommodate either 2 or 3 passengers each, neither had a bunk but each one had a couch. We each had just one person to a cabin. If you are not booking both, there will be some noise heard through the adjoining door. Because this cabin is close to the front of the ship, there is a lot of motion "up and down" plus "side to side." Very quiet part of the ship. We also requested that Guest Services have the balcony divider opened. This was wonderful. Note that the divider swings to the right and is bolted to the railing so it cuts off a bit of the view you see from cabin 7132.

Cabin 6196

Our cabin was mid-ship. Although it was near the elevators, it was completely quite. Never heard the elevators or the noise from the bars below. Two nights at sea were slightly rough but our cabin only slightly swayed. Very enjoyable cabin.

Cabin 6223
Mar 2011
We were in cabin 6223 in the 8D balcony category, which was on the starboard side right near the walkway to the elevator. It turned out to be a very quiet and convenient location!! We were at first concerned but it turned out to be a spot we would book again!! We enjoyed being able to watch the land as we sailed north.

Great for access to the fantail pool, Lido deck and formal dining. If you wanted to go ashore or go to any of the entertainment venues they were far away. No big deal but just something to keep in mind.

Excellent central location, close to atrium elevators - but no noise. Cabin steward storage was across the hall, so sometimes there were carts and laundy bags in the hallway next to this cabin.
