Large luggage doesn't fit under beds. So make sure to only bring two so they could both fit in the closet. Used one for dirty clothes throughout the cruise. Four adult size people fit in here (drop down beds), but none of us are big (all four of us are between 100-160 pounds each). Larger travelers would likely feel a bit cramped with four people in there. We are use to camping in an RV and we feel like the tight quarters was like our camping days (forced family togetherness that gets lost with teens). Several drawers and cubbies to store items/clothing. Will just need to plan for it. Typical small cruise shower but it does adjust in height and angle which helps. Read entire member review >>
I had a "Large" interior on deck 7. I think the difference between a standard interior and a large interior is like 10 square feet or something minuscule. Regardless, the room was more than sufficient to my needs. The A/C / Heating was incredibly efficient in the room. Maybe too efficient. it was either too hot or too cold, but then again, the temperature varied sufficiently throughout the cruise. It was over 80 degrees when we were in Florida (slightly above normal they said), but then it plummeted to below freezing on our way back. I'm normally never cold, but the ship was actually pretty cold on deck 7. This was the first time I had EVER turned my thermostat into the red ever (and i've been on winter cruises out of Baltimore before). Noise-wise, there was a group of kids on my floor that liked to run up and down the halls and that could be heard. However, fortunately, they didn't do it in the middle of the night (or if they did, I didn't hear them and it didn't wake me up). Otherwise, I had no problems. Read entire member review >>
Excellent location (cabin #3603) for sure. A good central location, one deck below the main dining room and next to the stairs and elevators. The room was quiet but on the small side. could not store luggage under the bed(s) and had to store one in the closet and the other next to the sofa. Limited TV channels; which became repetitive after 12 nights. Excellent cabin steward. Bedding was very firm, luckily I like it that way. Read entire member review >>
Small but centrally localised. Very quiet despite the fact that we were basically underneath the casino (or at least its entrance).
We had to get the bed separated into two singles as there was not enough room on my husband's side of the bed for him to get in and out (as the desk was in his way).
Husband found the cabin too small for his liking but I was satisfied. Of course, I am a short woman, so tiny spaces are okay by me :) Read entire member review >>
furnishings needed updating, bed was very hard and very very noisy all night long. discovered we were under the dining room. There was constant moving of furniture, dropping things even at 2 or 3 am. Read entire member review >>
Larura was excellent. She was my stateroom attendant. The dining room personnel were also splendid. Larura always had room clean approiately early in the morning and throughout the day . If I need any assistance for anything throughout the day Laura was there for me. She was there constantly for all my needs. I am grateful for that because I had guesting about going off ship and Laura was always able to help me. Read entire member review >>
The cabins were small and the mattress and pillows were kind of thin, but overall I didn’t have much complaints, the showers were clean, the hot water plentiful and the stateroom attendant was great! We got adjoining cabins so my wife and i had a cabin and our son slept with his Grandmother in the adjoining room. It would have been very cramped with the fold-down bunk bed so I was glad we had this option. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom Attendant, Prasadha Biragati was the best! He was very considerate and friendly. He took good care to put an extra egg crate on my bed because I have back issues and he asked me how I slept and wanted to make sure I was comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. Attendant was excellent. Mr. Ron was the brightest spot on our cruise. The kids loved him. He was very professional, detail oriented, and just an all around delight to be around. If every employee on the ship was like him I would cruise exclusively on that ship! Read entire member review >>
We don't mind small and crowded. The pull down beds were not good for our small kids. Both the 2 and 5 year old could climb up, but the low railing and the inability of the 2 year old to get down by herself made it dangerous for her. My adventuresome 5 year old boy loved climbing up, but didn't want to sleep there, and we were nervous how he would get down in the morning when it was dark. We did bring a night light, essential.

Small but comfortable. With the beds separated as 2 twins there was much more room to manuever. At first the beds were together and it was hard to get around the side of the bed especially the side next to the TV/vanity. There was more than enough drawer space and closet space to hang everything but the problem was the suitcases. They did not fit under the bed. We were able to put one on top of the drawers in the closet and the other one in front of the drawers in the closet since we didnt need to use these drawers. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great except for one thing which I will get to near the end.The Good:This was my 4th cruise and our second interior room. Great room for the money. Since I am rarely in the room it didn't make sense to shell out the $ for the window or balcony room. Plus my wife and child both like it pitch black in the room when they sleep so they made it easy. We had a 2 year old and we asked for a pack n play. When we booked the cruise they said they would have a PNP ready when we boarded but we had to ask our attendant for it when we boarded the first evening. It was set up when we got back from dinner that evening. The PNP fit nicely behind the small couch in the room. There was enough room for all of our stuff and some room under the bed. We had 2 full adult suitcases, I had 2 suits, and we had a small kids suitcase and some other carry ons but we found room for all of it. Room service was prompt. The TV has more channels than our last cruise, but no interactive menu for ordering movies like other cruises we have been on. Overall the room was good and had a nice layout.The bad AND the ugly:We had a lingering sewage smell coming from the drains and sink in our bathroom. Toilet flushed fine so we couldn't figure out what was going on. After 2 days it got so bad we couldn't stand being in the bathroom without holding our breath. I called the attendant and he cleaned down into the pipes while we were away. This drastically reduced the smell but did not eliminate it. It still lingered the rest of the cruise. I think there must have been something wrong with the plumbing. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is the smallest we've ever had but we got it on a deal and it served its purpose as a place to sleep, bathe, and change. The beds were awful. They were hard (not mattress firm, but legitimately HARD). The adjoining room door, and certain pieces of furniture rattle constantly with the ships vibration. It's not very loud rattling mind you but it has the potential to keep a light sleeper from getting any good sleep. The bathroom stinks of mildew no matter how clean the attendant gets it. The smell seeps up through the drains. The bathroom is also tiny. You'll need to sit on the toilet diagonally as there is no room for your legs otherwise. For a cheap room it is as expected and we found it to be okay. Don't expect first class service down in steerage either. You'll be lucky if your room attendant even introduces themselves let alone address you by your names. You will, however, still get the cute little towel creatures :) Read entire member review >>
a bit worn, mirror cupboard doors in bathroom would not close properly and nowhere at all to put your empty suitcases had to leave them on the small sofa.
Nothing but a bar of soap and shampoo dispenser in the bathroom no freebies Read entire member review >>
It would be better to have a glass screen instead of curtain in the bathroom, as the floor gets soaked if the curtain is not tucked in properly when having a shower. Also our suitcases would not tuck under the bed and had to put them on the sofa. Great use of space, excellent storage even for a family of 4 in a small stateroom. Read entire member review >>
Deck 3. Cabin 3903. Small and dark but ok for the price. Good location. Quiet and handy for dining, lifts etc. No fridge or kettle or irons-apparently the RCCI robbers want you to pay for all the above!?! Plenty cupboard space and reasonably comfortable beds. Bloody ancient tv, about the size of a small fridge!! Read entire member review >>
Felt quite a bit of movement in the cabin as it was near the front, if you get the wrong elevator you have a long walk to get to the cabin, bathroom far too small to be able to move in Read entire member review >>
Our room was an inside stateroom on floor 4. It was in the Guaranteed Cabin rate category, so you can say we paid for what we got. We soon realized that the room we were in, 4005, backed up to the orchestra pit in the Paladium Theater. We got a good thump-thump of music for three hours nightly. So beware if you get that room. The shower was fairly small, but again I am not complaining as I knew going in that interior staterooms have small showers and not a lot of room. Our room steward, Frankie, was excellent and a joy to interact with. Read entire member review >>
