Family Balcony Cabins

41 Reviews
These connecting staterooms are perfect if you want to bring the whole family. Sleeps up to three guests and includes a sitting area, two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa in some to accommodate one more. Not to mention the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony for the whole family to enjoy.

Cabin 11638
May 2017
Larger than we expected and tons of storage. Our large suitcases easily fit under the bed and plenty of room for clothes in closet and drawers. Loved the balcony, spent time there at sail away and just put my feet up and relax. By leaving the curtain open we were awakened each morning by the sunrise. Near the elevators and dining,

Very tight but adequate since we were out of the room most days. No where for our suit cases( we used to be able to hide under the beds.)Bathroom was very nice and plenty large.

The cabin location was almost perfect, port side aft just steps away from the outside aft pool area near Raffles Terrace (bar located one deck above) and hot tubs (located one deck down), near the elevator, and one deck below Raffles Court. The main issue we had with the cabin was the bed with sunken down mattress; it was in dire need of replacement. If you dreamed that you were in a hammock, like Gilligan, then you were fine. The Ultimate Drink Package (UDP) helped make this bad memory fade away. About 0630 we could hear some light noise of chairs being moved around on the deck above (Raffles Terrace area). The balcony provided outstanding views of the ocean and docking operations when coming into port.

Nicely decorated, clean and adequate but it would have been nicer to have had a bit more room for a family balcony.

Cabin 9200
Jan 2016
9th Floor Balcony Starboard Aft. Under Kids Club and nearly above Stardust Theater. Although we were concerned sound from the Kids club was NEVER an issue. We heard the theater one night, but wasn't issue, either. Smaller sized balcony (27 sq feet), but enough for two the sit and read. Having 3 in room worked - not lots of room, but sufficient. Bags under bed and in closet worked. Bathroom was clean and good sized. It is separated into shower, sink and toilet; each in own compartment. That works well, but if larger person may be tough to get into toilet area. We enjoyed the location close to kids club, theater, back of ship sun area and outside dining.

Our shower door did not open easily but maintenance fixed that, although we did not call it in, I think the cruisers on the cruise before us did. That's kinda sad it took them that long to fix it. A few loose tiles and the room next to ours (traveling partners) had a leak that went though the wall into the sleeping area (they fixed that while they were fixing the shower doors). Our closed door would not stay shut, every night we had to use the spare comforter to hold open the door to keep it from slamming shut while we were sleeping. Otherwise the room was clean and sufficient for what we needed. Our room attendant was Great!! He did everything asked of him and more!

Cabin 9188
Oct 2015
A little worn, but very clean and enjoyable. It is located beneath children's playroom and the noise was terrible. After six days of escalating complaints, they offered to move us. But by then the trip had only five days left, we were settled in 9188 and we had an outstanding steward named Mr. Infante.

Cabin 9520

An interesting comparison By: WildRedHed
Onboard we were keen to see our stateroom 9520 as we`d previously had a balcony stateroom on the Costa Serena which was wonderful. Our stateroom on the Spirit was the tiniest that we`ve ever had. There was only room for one person to pass between the wall and the bottom of the bed, and with the 3rd bed opened up at night it was impossible to reach the curtains or balcony. The bathroom has a good layout, but was rather grubby and frequently had a bad drain smell. Our stateroom attendant was great though, and spent a lot of time showing my son how to make towel animals with great patience.

Cabin 11152
Apr 2013
We were directly under the buffet restaurant but no noise from the diners. The only noises were what sounded like a compressor for a freezer running in the mornings and balls bouncing on the basketball court 2 floors above The TV/ fridge "thing" was a bit D.I.Y. meets Ikea looking and out of place. The toilet / shower area was bizarre. Who in their wisdom decided that a shower door was required to divide the toilet from the basin? All it did was create 3 small rooms and a trip or toe stubbing hazard. We had a balcony again and it was just big enough for 2 chairs facing the same direction

Wonderful Adventure! By: DDisaster86
The room was spacious, clean, and nice. The balcony was well worth it and being on the port side we almost always had the better views! The storage space was fine and the bathroom was bigger than Carnival. My only complaint was the noise. We were right below the staircase from floor 13 to 12 in the Raffles Terrace area. So it sounded like the ceiling was caving in every time someone used the stairs. Also the crew would clean that area under those stairs every night. The times for this changed, but some nights noise from their carts went until 1 am.

We were 10156, back of the ship, 10th floor. Convenient to dining rooms, as they were aft, deck 6, and showroom was aft, deck 5. The room was fine, balcony was fine. Children's area was very nearby but we never heard any noise from them, pleasant surprise! No unusual noises at all.

Small...barely room for three. Nice location close to aft elevators. Also close to ping pong deck. Noisy from buffet at times, but would quieten down. WONDERFUL cabin stewards. Hard bed. Flat pillows. Nasty water from sink....Lots of storage. Good lighting. Terrible tiny TV...but that was ok with me, but not the sports minded husband! :) Balcony very adequate. We really enjoyed it!

Cabin 10656
Jan 2011
Smaller room than most other ships, but still roomy enough for two people. Balconies are smaller in depth than most other ships, but again comfortable for two people who can live without lounge chairs. Room has no clock, no refrigerator, no bar soap and wall dispensers for shower soap and shampoo. At time the room did have a bit of a sewerage smell, but only on occasion.

Spirited time on the Spirit! By: Schnauzergirl
Two decks below the basketball courts, so you will hear playing on sea days and later afternoons in port.

Fun Cruise By: cruzanstcroix
We had (3) seperate staterooms with balconies on deck 11. I personally would not recommend deck 11 due to the noise from above in the buffet restaurant (Raffles) and the bar- Raffles Court. Also, there was a ping-pong table on the other side of our stateroom wall and the morons that were playing tended to bang there paddles on the wall at all hours. However, the room was clean and comfortable and the stewards were great. I do believe that I would upgrade to a suite next time though, just for the extra space.

Wonderful Xmas Cruise By: memphisliza
Nice room, good under bed storage, lovely beds and linens. Only one 120 volt outlet, had to move coffee pot across room to use it. Liked being beside back deck and ping pong tables, though sometimes it was a little loud if there was something going on the deck upstairs.
