Cabins were nice size and clean. 9697 had a sewer smell the length of the cruise. Smell could not be resolved and was present in balcony cabins across the hall.TV in both cabins were broken; they eventually replaced 9697s three days into cruise. No minibar...only option to buy expensive bulk quantity of one type soft drink to put in a mini fridge that did not chill (told that was as cold as it got!) Pitiful. One of the kids usually needs a inconvenient ginger ale at some point on our cruises...we just grab one from the minibar fridge on Carnival. Not this time. It was so nice to drink our personal wine though that we were able to bring....over ice! Getting ice was difficult especially for the kids...they were told to call room service (who never answered.). Cabin 9699 (the kids) had memory foam pads on the mattresses....9697 was like sleeping on the floor. We were told that they ran out of mattress pads when we asked for ours. Horrible night's sleep all week. Read entire member review >>
Room was great. Clean and exactly what we need it for... sleeping! Great location right near the elevators and didn't hear any weird noises. Had a drain problem in the shower the first day, but it was fixed immediately after notifying our room attendant. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are small but livable. Dark without any windows and you didn't know what time it was until you could get to A watch or phone. Only 2 outlets in the stateroom to charge your electronic gadgets. A couple of maintenance issues that didn't get fixed during our stay. Read entire member review >>
Small but very functional. Very limited closet space but extra drawers and vanity. The sofa and small table are overkill. I would have preferred more closet space and less living room (as carnivale does). Shower round but one of our party fell when the boat got rocky because there is not bar to hold on to in the shower (teenager). Clean! Refrigerator for drinks and ladders for bunks (easy fit for 4).

Our cabin, as expected, was very small. We had to move the glass table into the closet to be able to walk ~~ there were 3 adults ~~ and we could not sit on the couch because it held one of our suitcases. We could not hear the Captain's daily announcements in our room. The bathroom was very pleasant and functional, and all the little drawers in the room were helpful. Our room was very dark and quiet. A clock in the room would be helpful. Read entire member review >>
Dated. TV screen with dark spots. Mirror in bathroom already see black along the edge. (reflective back layer are come out). The bathroom light flick all the time. Carpet not vacuum enough as I see white curly hair that don't below to my family. Read entire member review >>
Adjoining with #8687. Small but still gave us plenty of room. A lot of cabinets and drawers for our personal items. Suitcases fit easily under the bed. Not a lot of outlets but we had brought an power cord. Very quiet and bed was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
We like inside cabins. Room was clean, quiet and dark. Just the way we like it. Wish RCCL would be more like Princess Cruise Line when it comes to selection of TV shows and movies. RCCL showed the same thing over and over. Not that I cruise to watch TV, but it's nice to have something good to watch. Read entire member review >>
Kept clean. The carpets are always iffy, in my opinion. Could be vacuumed more thoroughly- but when? Ha!Towels replaced promptly. Hard surfaces kept very clean.
Lloyd, our attendant, was great! Read entire member review >>
Our interior stateroom was small, but we knew it would be like that. However, we had enough space to store our clothes and luggage. It was kept clean throughout our stay and our 'please make up' and 'do not disturb' signs were always respected. The stateroom was pretty quite, despite being right under the Windjammer Cafe, although it was a bit rocky during some nights at sea. However, the beds were comfortable and everybody was able to sleep well. A couple of 'bad' things about the stateroom. The fridge kept things cool but not enough to prevent the girls' milk from going bad a couple of times. In addition, there were no ironing facilities available for our use, which made it really inconvenient to get our clothes ready for both formal dinners. Other than that, we were really happy and our children loved sleeping and hanging out in the Pullman beds (while watching cartoons and other children's program on TV) and playing with the towel decorations left by our stateroom attendant.

I ordered an eggshell for the bed 2 months ahead of time and I didn't get it. They didn't even say anything, but when i tried to get one, they were out. Lastly, the interior rooms are WAY smaller than Princess with no room to squeeze between bed and furniture. Our suitcase didn't fit under the bed. we moved the table into the closet so that we had a little space in the center area. Bathroom is as expected, but the room was just too tiny for comfort.

Quarters were tight for four people, but that was to be expected. The cabin was well apportioned, but appeared worn (e.g. chipping paint). The two wall outlets proved to be a challenge for charging devices, but we managed well enough. The bathroom had a slight, but pervasive urine smell which was, obviously, disquieting.
Room steward was fantastic. The towel figures were a big hit with the kids, and we never ran out of clean towels.
Room was quiet and conveniently located. Read entire member review >>
Connecting interior cabins. Lenny would lower the bunkbeds each evening and raise them each morning. We kept the door between the cabins open. The girls loved seeing the towel animals each evening. Read entire member review >>
We hade a stateroom with a view on the Promenade, so I'm not sure if this is the right category I chose. We always try to book an interior room as we only use the room for sleeping, showering and changing clothes. If a bigger one (like the last one) is available at (about) the same price, we go for that of course.
You can put your bags underneath the bed, some of the cupboards are not that usefull and you can only put small items in them (I would have designed this in another way to make the space even more usefull). This is a minor critique though. We still like the rooms very much. Read entire member review >>
We knew this would be small... and it was! But we managed thanks to my wife's preparation and ingenuity, our family of 2 adults 2 kids (3 year old, and 7 month old) were just fine. The stateroom attendant was fantastic. Read entire member review >>
About what I expect out of an inside state room. The TV mount was too short to pivet enough for comfortable bed viewing. The Public Address System did not work at all. Other than that I would say it was in good shape and clean. Read entire member review >>
Very clean interior cabin. Front starboard. Economical, functional, two staircases up to the Solarium and pools. Full-sized king bed; no rounded corners at bottom. Plenty of storage space. Cabin attendant, George, struck a good balance of taking care of our needs while giving us plenty of privacy. Read entire member review >>
Inside cabin on deck 10 had adequate drawer/shelf/hanging clothing space. Smaller bathroom than I've encountered on other ships, but everything worked and was very clean. Our cabin attendant, Kenta, was outstanding - always freshening the cabin and replacing towels each time we were out. Beds were very comfortable. Minimal noise. A curtain that separates the beds from the rest of the cabins kept the sleeping area nice and dark. Read entire member review >>
Pretty crowded for a family of 4, but that's what we expected. It was super quiet, really couldn't hear anything from the hall or surrounding rooms. The room itself was clean, but the bunks had chipped paint, and the shower had a tiny bit of mildew in the corners. The towels aren't super-fluffy, but they got the job done. The TV remote didn't always work great, but we were able to turn on and off the TV manually. The lighting at the vanity table was fabulous for Mom doing her make-up for dinner. We weren't in there much, but the beds were super-comfy. Read entire member review >>
INTERIOR STATEROOM 9665: I do not recommend this room. It was my 5th cruise & this was the noisiest room ever. (I've stayed in a junior suite, a balcony room, and then 2 interior rooms. They are usually fine & I love sleeping in the dark room!) It was an adjoining room (a first), and the adjoining door was unlocked when we arrived. We could not get it locked until around 6:30 that night. We locked up our valuables in the safe, but we could hear the couple in the next room at times throughout the cruise. Also, this room is located next to the very loud & squeaky staff elevator. Not great for the early morning snoozing! Read entire member review >>
7403 - very quiet, lots of space, great closet space and nice sized bathroom. It was at the end of the hall and the walk could feel long, but I loved being on the 7th floor - don't go below 6 on this ship! I would book this room again for sure. Read entire member review >>
The closet on our inside cabin was tight & hard to get to when Bathroom door open.
Great quiet room & hallway at the back of the ship. Fairly easy to get to the back elevators. We had the best room steward of any cruise we have taken. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great. We had 5 in the cabin including 2 adults and 3 children ages 11, 3 and 1. Considering the amount of us we found the room to be perfectably comfortable. Bathroom was as expected. There was a good use of space and plenty of closet space. Read entire member review >>
Interior room, no view which was our choice. The cabin was clean and the steward was very polite and friendly-we enjoyed him very much and he did a great job. Although quarters were on the small side, the space was adequate the use of space efficient. We both thought the bed was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Very pleased with the cabin . It was down on deck two with a window but we would have no hesitation in choosing this again. Afterwards we thought if we had paid extra for a balcony you would feel you would have to spend more time in the room to make it pay, so why bother. Read entire member review >>
I had a inside cabin. Cabins are not very important as I book a cabin by myself and neve spend much time in them. My cabin was always clean and my stateroom attendant was very friendly. I was in cabin 7129 which was ideal as I was close to the elevator. Read entire member review >>
Interior room was well furnished. A bit tight with the coffee table but acceptable. We were on deck 9 near the back elevators which was quiet for the most part. I would like to see other rooms to compare. Read entire member review >>
We loved having connecting rooms for a family of 5. The location was great as it is at the back of the ship which is where we spent most of our time. Adventure Ocean, sports deck, flowrider, Windjammer, Dining Rooms are all at the back of the ship. It was also a quiet location. Great choice. Read entire member review >>
In cabin 9307, and had glorious sleep each night, and were never disturbed. there was, one afternoon, a plumbing issue that resulted in toilet not working for 2 hours, but nothing horrendous. Read entire member review >>
