Inside Staterooms are the most affordable way for you to cruise. With room for up to four, you'll have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate up to two more guests.
Inside room on 9th floor. It was a very convenient location which made it easy to get everywhere via the stairs. Rooms were small but nicely appointed and well designed to get the most of the space. Our room steward, Rene, was excellent. He worked around us so seamlessly, never coming in unless we were out. We did the prepaid gratuity option but felt inclined to give him an extra cash tip on the last day.
The only negative was that the shower temperature was a bit hard to regulate, I frequently ended up with water hotter than I cared for. Also had a drain backup, but Rene called it in and was it resolved quickly. After that there was a slight odor in the bathroom which lingered but was manageable, Read entire member review >>
This was the first time we tried an inside cabin. It was plenty spacious for both my Husband and myself. It served the purpose, but I just did not like the darkness. I have had balconies, portholes and mini suites in the past. It depends on what is affordable to me at the time of booking. Felix the room steward was great. Always available to get you what you need. He was efficient, friendly and accommodating. The only thing I did not like is a slight odor was coming from the sink, some sort of dirty water smell I am not sure as I have never experienced this on any cruise before. I just covered it with a facecloth and went on my way. I did not mention it as I was only in the room to sleep. But it should be looked into. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small, but very efficient. It had adequate storage for the two of us. I would recommend eliminating the table, as it took up valuable floor space. The A/C was not as cool as we like it. The bathroom was spacious. Loved the shower with the sliding door instead of a curtain. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is very small with barely any table surface for your knickknacks. We had our 2 beds together but realized that the 1 foot space between the bed and walls on each side were too tight to maneuver around and decided to split the bed up and enjoyed a whole 2 feet of space between the bed. It makes a huge difference. Bathroom is also small. Toilets facing the wall is practically right at your face. The shower is enclosed with glass, not curtains, and I tend to bang my elbows while showering. I am of average size, I don't see how oversize people is able to take their shower. Bed height is good to slide your luggage underneath it. LCD tv is small and very little to watch with a few channels from ship info to movies to CNN. There is a small safe in the closet to place your valuables in. Descent amount of closet and drawers for clothes. We brought a small night light and plugged it in the bathroom outlet for night time bathroom breaks, the room is very dark without it. Toilet didn't work for one night, called to have it fixed, and it was fixed within the hour. Cabin location was very quiet. It was away from the stairs/elevators and not above or below anything that was noisy like Garden Cafe, pool, or the main lounge. Both wife and I slept like babies. But you will notice ship motion, even with ships stabilizer. Read entire member review >>
I'm not sure of the cabin category. It was a modified (accessible) interior cabin on deck 10.
We loved our cabin, which was an accessible interior, cabin 10211, deck 10. Our steward Jay was new and did a great job. He was friendly without being in our faces 24/7. Our cabin was large, since it's wheelchair accessible. There were 2 twins with 2 end tables, a small dining or card table with stool, a vanity area with chair & good size cabinet style closets with plenty of drawers and shelves. There was also a sofa with pull out bed. It felt hard, but it was nice to have that extra seating area. The TV was on the cabinet which housed the safe & mini fridge and had more drawers for storage. The TV swivels so you can watch it from the beds or the couch. The restroom was quite large, as was the shower, but there is no vanity, and there were only 2 small shelves. Bring an over the door plastic shoe holder so you can put your toiletries, etc in it. It seemed like the restroom would be difficult to access if you were in a wheelchair. The floor sloped up into the restroom, so it seemed like you'd have to get a rolling start to get up into it. And the door was not automatic. You would have to manually open it first.

Cabin drawers did not stay shut while ship was moving. Cabin was dirty!! Crumbs and other debris on the floor, towels were stained and not replaced regularly, pillows smelled and glasses in the bathroom were not replaced with clean ones. Read entire member review >>
Good cabin, quiet, excellent steward. Big bonus, reasonably sized bathroom and a shower that had a sliding door and room to turn around in without hitting some protruding object that only ships designers include in a shower space. Read entire member review >>
Typical inside cabin. Room enough in the closets and drawers for all our clothes. Good water pressure, TV and lights worked fine. The beds were comfortable but not luxurious. Housekeeping was excellent. Read entire member review >>
The only negative thing was we started off with too many people in our cabin. Guest services was able to get us another room and our steward made it up for us, and we enjoyed the animals made out of towels. Lots of fun there. Read entire member review >>
small cabins. They dont rechange sheets at all during the cruise. My room was on the side of the generators which I was not aware of and it was so loud in my room like a tank was running day and night terrible! Read entire member review >>
Loved the location as the Lido deck is so accessable, room a tad small but clean and completely sufficed, bathroom was comfortable size. No outside noise and our steward was excellent. we never make the steward cater to us daily unless needed, we realize how hard these people work and feel that if its just towels we need or garbage emptied we give them a break.

Cabin smaller than Carnival Dream w/ less storage in rm and bathroom. For some reason we were in a 4 person rm w/ under bed pop up bed and wall mounted bed that took up even more space. Bed was very comfortable though. We had an unusually less than attentive cabin steward. He threw away papers we were keeping and was late almost every night w/ turn down and so we were often in rm and so he would just drop off towels and the daily schedule. Otherwise cabin was O.K.

First time in an inside state room and pleasantly surprised. (Last time had a balcony room on NCL Jewel in 2012). Though lots of jokes were made about the size of the cabins, I found it rather cozy and ample, given the fact that you don't spend an enormous amount of time in them. Our cabin location was forward portside and worked out beautifully for all the time spent in the Stardust Theater, Casino, and Bimini Bar. I also found our bed to be very comfortable. I would add that for the two of us, we had tons of room for our suitcases and clothes in the closet space, pullout drawers, and shelves as well as ample room for our personal belongings in the bathroom area. I had much more room in this area as the toilet is angled toward the door allowing extra head and leg room rather than straight on in the Jewel Balcony bathroom. A-LO-HAAAAAA! :) The movies, comedies and ship's navigational info on the flat screen TV were fun to pass the time with. Also, our cabin steward, Rona, was a sweetheart, very friendly, and made the best towel animals!] Read entire member review >>
12007 small to average sleeping quarters, great bath area, storage a little tight, very cold in this quadrant...the bow area. noisy in hall. wonderful location on the pool/buffet deck. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on Deck 12 and was an inside cabin. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and we slept well. The bathroom and enclosed shower was also very nice. The closets, drawers and shelves provided amply room for our clothes.
The carpets weren't too clean, observed when we had to scrub up the red wine that we spilt. The cloth was black!!!!
It was very noisy in the early morning (7:30 AM) as the cabin stewards would assemble their bins and start to get things ready to begin their day. We unfortunately had the room right at the corner where they assembled! When on vacation I don't usually start my day that early.
We did like being on the 12th deck and not far from the Garden Cafe and the pool. Read entire member review >>
We had inside cabins and they were the smallest of any ship we've been on. The rugs were dirty. The showers are nice. The TV is too small and didn't work well (the satellite feed was always on the blink). There is not enough room to put your stuff. There is a wet bar which is nice. The cabin was noisy because the ship creaked constantly. Read entire member review >>
