Mini-Suites have a queen-size bed (that can be separated), pillow top mattress, a built in vanity area, full closet with sliding doors, television, sofa bed, double sink, waterfall shower with multiple body spray jets and handheld shower head, safe, refrigerator, and a hairdryer.
This cabin is very spacious and I would recommend it if you can tolerate the out-house like smell from the bathroom. I really loved the deck; it was so relaxing to lay on one of the lounge chairs and listening to the sounds of the ship and the ocean.
This is really a great stateroom when the waters are calm. We experienced rough seas going from NYC to the Caribbean and back. This stateroom seemed to experience a lot of movement during these times. We had glasses and bottles fall on the floor and things flew out of the cabinet. Read entire member review >>
This was the only good thing about this cruise, the stateroom was well laid out with plenty of storage. But the bed was extremly lumpy, and the TV choice was terrible with shows/movies that repeated over and over Read entire member review >>
This is an Accessible Aft-Facing Mini-Suite with Balcony (M1). Excellent layout, ample storage, wonderful view, and huge balcony...even larger than the other one (10316), because there is a utility room between the two cabins, but the balcony of 10916 extends not halfway across the utility room, but all the way, due to the way the other balcony dividers line up structurally above and below deck ten.
Beds were comfortable, cabin was quiet, clean, and everything worked fine. Would definitely book this unique cabin again, if available... Read entire member review >>
One of the hidden gems on this ship is the size of the Aft Mini suite (10916). The room itself is about 500 sq ft and the balcony can easily accommodate 4 lounge chairs, 2 standard chairs and a small table. The bathroom is tremendous with the feel of a standard hotel bathroom. This room had 6 clothing drawers, 10 storage cubbies in the closet, a mini fridge and a full size standard wardrobe closet. The desk area had another 3 drawers and a huge counter space. Since the room is designed as handicap accessible, it is limited to 2 passengers (could easily accommodate 6). The only downside to the room is the electric door … it takes forever to close and if pushed, reopens and restarts the cycle. We have noticed that many new cruisers do not realize that in most state rooms there is adequate storage for 2 or 3 large suitcases under each bed, total 6 for the room. Just gets the bags out of your way.Since the staterooms are designed to be energy efficient, you need to have a key card inserted into the key slot on the interior of the room or all of the electricity turns off. It really isn’t a big deal during the day in a balcony cabin as there is sufficient light in the room. It does become an issue at night, since the lights in the cabin will not turn on unless you insert a card and the room is quite dark otherwise. Also, since the bathroom has no window, inserting a card into this device is critical or there are no lights in the bathroom either. Leaving a card in the slot is also essential if you intend to charge any electronic devices while you are not in the cabin (any hotel key card works for this purpose). Read entire member review >>
