These Inside Staterooms are the most affordable way to cruise. There's room for up to four guests and they include two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and of course, you'll have room service and many other amenities.
Inside cabin on Gem is very small. Only problem is there is a table which blocks the person getting out of bed. Location was great close to stairs and elevator. On a quiet hallway. Bliss Lounge was below us, but no noise problems. Read entire member review >>
We knew our cabin would be very small, but it was fine for what it was - we survived with two adults and a teenager. Our room steward Jose, who was truly a highlight of our cruise, made our cabin experience nicer than what we expected for such an inexpensive room. Read entire member review >>
Small cabin with the bed facing sideways. It was a good use of space and we only felt cramped when 1 of us was in the bathroom, closet area and wanted to get into the bed area. Read entire member review >>
Small, neat cabin. Pretty quiet area, except for the occasional excited guest. Closest to the FWD elevators. Everything worked. Three small drawers, three tall shelves about 17 inches wide, closet with decent space for light packers. Clean tidy bathroom with body wash, conditioning shampoo, and hand soap. Toilet is on an angle to fit the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
I had an interior cabin which was small especially with 3 people but I've been on so many cruises that it doesn't bother me anymore, the shower was bigger than what I am accustomed to on a ship which was really nice, but the toilet was in an odd spot so you had to sit on it sideways because the front was so close to the wall.

The cabin was small but comfy. We weren't in it much, anyway. But when we were, it was OK!
The bed was somewhat lumpy, with no support under the mattress. They should upgrade their beds. Read entire member review >>
the steward saw I was reading an incredible Hulk comic anthology and he made a Hulk out of towels, very thoughtful and impressive. He knew our names the first day and was always asking if we needed anything. cabin was small but well maintained. Read entire member review >>
Very small.. but very homey. Lots of storage space including being able to store suitcases under the bed. Two twin beds put together to make a king and it was a little off and not completely equal on height, but when we were laying in bed, we were not able to notice. Shower is pretty small, and the water likes to changed temperature often. I had it on the 30 tick mark and it got cold then super hot. There was a step up to our bathroom area. Our housekeeper, Kadek, made the experience of the room the best. Excellent service and super sweet. Hardly any TV stations, and if you are trying to go to sleep with a movie, good luck because the movie channel isn't always playing a movie. I thought the room was going to be too small for us, but like we had originally thought, we were only there to change our clothes, shower and sleep so it worked perfectly. It was a great room for a first cruiser. It was also located near the ports of call gangway, so you could wait in your room until they allowed you to get off the ship. Read entire member review >>
Ours was the only cabin with the entrance door being on the side of the room rather than at the end of the room. It was different but not really consequential.
The mattress on the bed was very lumpy. Most patrons would vehemently object however we did not find it objectionable to sleep on as it was just soft enough that the "lumps" were not problematical. (It did take the first night to get used to it however).
We both found the body-wash to be objectionable. So much so in fact, that at the first opportunity we went ashore to buy bar soap. (The shampoo was very good however).
The toilet tissue was probably the cheapest grade of any that I have ever seen on a ship. Particularly one of Norwegian Cruise Line's stature. Shame, shame. Read entire member review >>
Staff hallways on two sides of our stateroom. Public hallways on the other. Definitely do not recommend this particular room. Lots of noise, lots of traffic, and a good amount of sleep lost due to the noise. Staff likes to slam doors :( Read entire member review >>
Good value, ample storage for small space, great shower turned into a steam bath because the sliding doors trapped all the heat in. One drawback, it felt like we were right on top of the engine, the room vibrated and we heard clanking noises all night but we got used to it. Except for disembarking, that night the clanking and vibrating started at 4am and didn't wand til 8, no sleep at all. Read entire member review >>
Right underneath some stairs, kind of loud with people walking down at night and in the morning. Also, possibly next to some cargo areas which we heard noises from at night. Read entire member review >>
