You can comfortably fit up to four guests in these staterooms, making them perfect for families. You'll enjoy an amazing view from the big picture window. Two lower beds convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to sleep two more guests. Of course, you'll have room service and many other amenities.
Quiet cabin, it is located midway down the port side several rooms in from the stairs. We never heard noisy passengers in the hallway outside the cabin. directly above the cabin is a dining room, but we never heard noise coming from there. The cabin was quite small but well arranged. The bathroom was larger than other cruise lines for this cabin category, the shower being much larger with a sliding glass door. We found that the cabin had more than enough storage space with the closets and drawers. The two beds arranged as a queen aren't The steward was polite and attentive Read entire member review >>
With 7 of us, we had the 3 guys in an inside cabin and the 4 ladies in the outside Oceanview room across the hall.
Both cabins had 2 twin beds which could be made into a queen sized bed, and a pull down bunk over one of the twin beds. This was good for 3 people, but not good for 4. The ladies had a trundle bed between the twin beds. Having a second pull down bunk would have worked out much better for them. There was plenty of room for a 4th bed.
If we do this again, I will choose a balcony room for the 4 gals, and a facing inside room for the 3 of us guys. According to the sales information, the balcony rooms are about 50 square feet larger than the room our ladies had. They could have used the space, especially with the trundle bed.

Our family cabin for four with oceanview was small, but we made it work. Our ship was over full and there were no exchanges possible. We loved looking out the window and watching the ship on television. Our steward brought ice, teapot and lots of towel animals. He did and excellent job with not much room to work in.

Great. Normal wear and tear. Slept 4 with ease. Linens and beds comfy. Room got warm a couple times but we are hot natured. Eddie, our steward, was great and very efficient. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was great, and kept immaculately clean and well stocked. Tiny, but, really, who wants to spend time sitting in your cabin? We used it to sleep (very little!) and store our stuff. The rest of the time was spent enjoying all that the ship had to offer. Cruise Director Armen and his staff provided so much to do, that we need to book immediately again just to experience the moments we missed while doing other things. I would have appreciated a coffee maker. Read entire member review >>
Ideal room and location! Perfectly quiet. Has four more drawers than a balcony cabin, so lots of storage. The window is large and has a ledge wide enough to sit on if you aren't too big. I really felt like it had more room than my parent's balcony cabin, because of the bed placement. And without the door open to the outside, the temperature stayed more steady/less humid.
The door that would open to adjoin the next cabin is on your right, after you pass the wardrobe/tv area. If you have four people in the room, there is a trundle bed under one of the king/twins, and a bunk on the right wall. I thought that bunk would be inconvenient, but it doesn't get in the way when it is folded up.
The room has two chairs, a stool and one with a back, and a table that can be moved front and center for a room service picnic.
The bathroom door has hooks and rods for hanging towels, so putting a shoe holder there with toiletries does not really work. There are three small shelves with railings that work nicely, but I did wish I had some kind of little basket or something for my toiletries so they wouldn't slip off.
The closet has a fold down shelf so you can hang blouses and pants one above the other, and a light in the back of it.
There are plug ins at the desk, under the TV, under the fridge, and over the mirror in the bathroom.
Nearly all the walls are magnetic and I brought magnetic hooks with me which let me hang my lanyard up by the desk, and make a kind of collage of postcards collected on the trip. I also used the magnetic hooks in the bathroom to hold up the cord of my toothbrush so it could sit on the top shelf without the cord hanging in front of the mirror. I had considered bringing christmas lights for the room but wasn't sure about plug ins or if the walls were magnetic all around-- using the magnet hooks would have worked just find for that, I think.
We were in the room a lot over the 16 days and heard hardly a peep from the rest of the ship. Being near the stairs/elevator at midship was ideal.
There is apparently no end of hot water or water pressure--heavenly showers, as long as you like!
Keep your expectations in line with this being an older well-cared for ship, and you will not be disappointed. The carpet in the room definitely shows wear. But everything is clean and in good repair. We were very happy with our room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very nice. It seemed a little smaller then a ocean view on a Carnival ship and there was only one large wardrobe to hanging clothes as opposed to individual wardrobes on a Carnival ship. There were plenty of shelves to store items that are not hung in the wardrobe or in the drawers by the vanity mirror. There was plenty of storage for the two of us. Read entire member review >>
Rooms: we had an outside room on the 8th deck in the back that gave us quick access to the Tsar's Palace as well as the Garden Buffet. It was a little tight with the bed on the wall and yet since we were out a lot, was not a big issue. Read entire member review >>
