The cabin was wonderful. Even with five adult sized people in the room, we never experienced any issues with the space. I will say the closet on the side for the children was smaller than the one on our side, even though it was supposed to hold 3 people's clothing and ours only two, so we did put one kid's clothing in our closet. There is a curtain that pulls across to separate the kid and parent sections making changing in the room easy. The bathroom has a tub with doors that enclose it. That was a first for us and a welcome change from the usually tiny showers. Read entire member review >>
We had to split up our family of five as my oldest son, 25, is in an electric wheelchair. He stayed in an accessible room (12286)which was huge and had two long balconies. My wife and I along with our two boys, 11 &10, stayed in 5752 which is a family oceanview room with large window. The room was spacious for a ship room and had ample storage for clothes and stuff.

Tried the front of the ship for the first time and really liked it. There was little rocking since waves were calm thru whole cruise. Loved the large window and window seat which made the room appear larger. Only next time we will request Deck 11 or 12 as our view was level with the railing and the white tent roofs of the bar below us which gave us an obstructed view. Read entire member review >>
This was a mid-ship room.It was a tight room for Five, with not enough space to unpack for all five, but we managed. Luckily the only times in the room were for sleeping. The beds were all comfortable, and after trying to figure out how the fifth person got a bed, when we arrived back at our room after diner the first night, the bunk was opened (drops out of the ceiling).Only one outlet in the room, so I had planed ahead and brough extension cords and a power strip so we could charge all our phones and cameras each night.The main light switch was activated by your room key, but found out any card in your wallet will work. The outlet is also switched with this switch. It took us a while to find all the switches, but you can turn off all the lights without removing the key card from the switch.Only on the port days did we have issues with noise. 7:30am each port morning we were awoken by what every they were doing while docking the ship, but other than that, a very quiet room!The kids liked sitting in the window an watching the sea roll by.Bathroom had a bath, and double sinks.
