With room for up to four guests, these Oceanview Staterooms come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate up to two more guests, as well as a picture window with a great view. These are mid-ship staterooms, which means you'll be right near everything on board.
Didn't want to pay extra for a balcony, but there was a constant noise, which we heard more, when we docked in Bermuda for 2 nights. One officer said it was the noise of taking in water, and it would stop when we were sailing, but but didn't. Someone else said we were under the galley and they were probably washing the floor...but all night?? Take ear plugs. Our friends in 5596 was right under the galley and heard noises all night!!

For two people, I had no major complaints about the room. Going in, I expected the worse but was relieved to find that it was spacious enough for the both of us but definitely would have been crowded with any more than that. There was one outlet in the room conveniently placed by the desk next to the well powered hair dryer. The minibar was compact but there were no issues with storing our water bottles in them.
I possibly only have two minor complaints which would be that the TV was small and no larger than 26 inches which made viewing from the bed difficult. The second being that the walls are somewhat thin and you can hear snoring, conversations, and even the TV from other rooms.
Everything else seemed to be fairly standard, lots of hooks and hangars for clothes, ample amount of mirrors, hand held shower head, and a safe for valuables. Overall, very adequate. Read entire member review >>
A bit small for 3 people, glad the 3rd was a 15 year old that didn't have problems climbing up and jumping down, yes...jumping down... from the pull down bed. shower was good, excellent water pressure and VERY hot if you wanted, check the temperature before use. A little tight for 3 people. Sometimes the casino above is loud, I think we were about below the craps table. Didn't keep us awake at night though. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is adequate and the room attendants are wonderful. I would not recommend you stay on the 5th floor, mid ship. We were in 4 consecutive ports. Each time we arrived there was so much noise and loud people getting the boat positioned and docked that it woke us up- before dawn. There are tenders that are lowered from the Dawn and the work to lower them takes place right outside your window. I had to take a nap after 4 days of this early activity.

Toilet would flush 2 maybe 3 out of 4 times had plumber there everyday. I'm sure the person in occupying room 8068 this week has the same problem. I left the ship with a toilet that would not flush. Read entire member review >>
Two power failures. Power restored quite quickly. Toilet not working properly. Many chips out of the sill below the window. The cabin was clean and our steward took very good care of us and the cabin. Read entire member review >>
We had an accessible room with twin beds. When we moved the beds to the side of the room it had more space. There was plenty of room for 2 ladies to store their clothes. The room was right near O'Sheehans and between both elevators. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in a great location. We were only about 150 feet from the mid-ship elevator and one stair flight up to Aqua. The bed was pretty firm, but I got used to it after a day or so and slept well the whole trip. There is plenty of storage space. My husband and I brought way too much luggage, but we had plenty of room for everything with three shelves and a desk drawer left over to store souvenirs that we bought. We had two bedside tables and wide window sill to set personal items on. The bathroom is a nice size and does not feel cramped or crowded. Make sure you close the bathroom door or the steam will set off the smoke detector and you will get a visit from the emergency crew! The only thing in the room that I would like to see improved upon is the space between the left side of the bed (as you are facing it) and the vanity table. There is less than 6" of space between the two corners and it is pretty tight to fit through. The cabin was quiet the majority of the time with only faint noises from the cabin next door once in awhile. Overall, it was a great location and we were very pleased with it.

The cabin was small, but it was about the size we expected. In the future, we will opt for a balcony room so that we have extra space and the ability to sit outside with fresh air. The room was more than enough space for us to sleep, with 4 separate twin beds (including 1 in the wall). If we had to spend more time in the room, it would have been difficult, but it was just a place to sleep and shower for the day. The room attendant was outstanding. She did a great job changing out the towels each day and the place was immaculate in the morning and night when she turned down the beds. Read entire member review >>
The housekeeping service was very good but we were put in a handicap unit and every time you took a shower the entire bathroom flooded out because there was no edging to keep the water confined and the drains could not keep up with the water so the bathroom had puddles all the time. We used towels to try and retail the water at the floor drains but that did not work. So getting up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night you has to wear shoes so your feet did not get wet. The floors were just always wet and we were always using our towels to sob up as much water as we could. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in the adjoining cabins 5102/5106. Our cabin steward Mr. Dipak was fantastic and took care of anything that we needed. TWe had 3 kids in one cabin with my husband and I on the other cabin. There was plenty of room for all of our belongings between the closets and the drawers. There were 6 sliding drawers in each cabin plus additional storage shelves located in the sides of each closet. We had plenty of hangers for a 7 day cruise since most of our clothes were casual wear. The storage was sufficient to hold all 4 of our rolling suitcases plus carry ons.
Bathroom area was also very good. We liked the separators between toilet and sink areas and the spacious shower. Toilet area was a bit small so I can't imagine what it was like for a larger sized person.
We all loved the large picture window. It made the rooms seem larger and each day we had at least one child perched in front of it. Read entire member review >>
There were three of us in the cabin. The only thing tough was when we all took showers one after the other..we set off the heat sensor on the smoke alarm..TWICE...all was good..we just spaced out the showers. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 5082: I wouldn't stay in it again - I'd suggest going higher in the ship so you only have guest cabins above and below you versus public areas. We had the hallway in the area of Le Bistro and the Gatsby's Bar above us, and were awakened a few nights by the sound of something heavy and loud being rolled down the hall. Otherwise the cabin was in a quiet location and convenient to restaurants and disembarking from the ship while in port. Not bad, but definitely not as good a location as I've had previously.

The bathroom door was a little hard to get closed. You had to slam it to get it to stay shut or pull super hard or push on it hard to get it to close more softly. Otherwise, the room was in excellent condition! Read entire member review >>
We were in stateroom # 5118. Being that this stateroom was a connecting room, I was afraid that this could cause lots of noise but to my surprise, the room was quite quiet. We would sometimes hear a little "windy" noise which we believe to be the vacuum in the aqua dining room (located just above), this never woke us up or bothered us. The bathrooms are on the small side, but really you won't be spending the bulk of your time there. The room was clean, being a germ freak; I had brought a bit of cleaning towels (kills 99% germs) to do some extra "Cleaning" and besides from a little scrubbing this was pretty good for a "hotel"! The bed was very comfortable and the big picture window sure helped the room feel more "open"! The room was centrally located and made it so you couldn't really feel the movement of the ship. The television was good with 18 channels (10 promoting the boat). On the plus side lots of good TV shows when you just feel like doing nothing. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4550: Port hole view. Adequate to know if it is day or night.Position of the room port side forward makes getting to it a little tricky as some elevators do not reach that part of fourth deck. If one remembers to use the mid-ship elevators and to ignore signs saying to use the fifth floor aft stairway, reaching the room is a breeze. Just bear left and follow the corridor and voila', the cabin appears. Read entire member review >>
5038 is below the Casino and there is a machine that sounds like whales mating right above the bed. The walls are paper thin and everything going on in 5050 is heard clearly. Loved the layout of the cabin and especially the bathroom. The blowdryers woek great. Read entire member review >>
Outside State Room on Deck 5. Good size, Comfortable bed. Excellent Bathroom. Not insulated enough as the room next to us had two babies that cried all the time. Leave them home people. Read entire member review >>
Cabin location was great. We were close to the elevators and stairs. We were also one floor down from the Aqua dining hall so we had easy access to it. We did not feel much motion of the ship. The bed was a little hard. We had plenty of storage space for our things. The bathroom has a separate toilet, sink and shower area. They are all separated by glass doors. Read entire member review >>
Would have liked a bigger TV with more channels. It was very hard to read captions on bottom of TV from the bed. We had to keep getting up in order to read the news stations. Also a DVD player would be nice for movies. Read entire member review >>
