These mid-ship staterooms can accommodate up to three guests, with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa in some to sleep one more. They also include a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony. Because these are mid-ship staterooms, you'll have easy access to everything on board.
Cabin was smaller than the newer ships. We had a balcony and that was really small...we didn't use it once. The cabin itself was comfortable, but nothing too flashy or modern. There was some rust in the corners in the bathroom....but that doesn't bother us too much. Read entire member review >>
Cabin: Our mid ship balcony on deck 9 was very clean, very quiet, but on the small side. The bathroom, specifically the shower, was the largest and nicest we have had which made up for the smallish room. The Balcony was average. Our Steward, Rey was outstanding and greeted us by name day one. He quickly learned our routine and was waiting for us in the evening when we returned and would open the door for us so we did not have to find our key. We always had clean towels and a clean room. He quickly removed the items from the refrigerator so we could use it for our water, etc. Although not necessary for us, we were treated to a fabulous towel animal/creature each night. Around day 3 of the cruise, Rey left a large and very nice bar of soap for us to use in the shower. This is an old ship and smoking used to be permitted in the rooms. There were a couple of times when we did get a slight cigarette smell in the room, but it was not all the time and it did not last. Read entire member review >>
The furniture drawer fronts fell off, another drawer would not glide in or out without a lot of finagling. At times the water that came flowing out into the bathroom sink was brown and smelled of sewer. We had one lamp that was never plugged in during the entire trip, we could not manage to plug in as the cords ran under the bed. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was fine. Our attendant, Connie, was awesome. We had a couple of minor problems, each of which was fixed immediately. We blew a fuse trying to use our Hair Dryer. And we had a small leak from the shower. And, the ship gave us a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. Read entire member review >>
The room was well maintained and about of the size expected. The balcony however seemed a bit small, but large enough for two chairs and small table. A couple of picky items regarding the room: the safe was almost on the floor so you had to stoop down and use your glasses to enter the combination code--would have been much better higher up in the closet; the television, on the other hand was a bit too high in that we had to raise the remote above your heads if watching television from the bed; would have preferred that the bed lamps be further away from the headboard.

ok but not wonderful - and smelly! Had it's good points such as not being overlooked on the balcony, comfy bed and a television you could see from the bed. Downsides were the broken old coffee machine stuffed in a wardrobe still with thickly moulded coffee bags inside - 3 inches of mould growing off them so it had been there a while! Beds got made but bathrooms were not cleaned all week? is that the norm - we dont know? We did begin to question the room services when the wet towel animals began to appear on beds leaving wet patches - we began to call it 'faulty towers' because of it at the end! Still we loved the balcony, fresh air, views and sunshine from it and a good nights sleep. Read entire member review >>
We had a balcony room, cabin 10066. No complaints. Our room steward "Johnson" was wonderful. Attentive and always on the ball. Lots of cute towel critters every day? A bat hanging from the ceiling and a mouse! lol Never have seen those two before. Bathroom was dated, but clean. I've read some complaints on that area, but ours truly was ok. Adequate storage space although weird angular cubbies. AC was great, never turned on the tv (why on earth would I?) Read entire member review >>
Cabin was a bit small for 3 people, and storage space somewhat lacking, but we managed. It would have been more than adequate for 2. The decor was different, and we loved the tropical fish tiles in the bathroom area. Read entire member review >>
We had balcony room 9086. You could hear the people above us when they walked around.
Location is mid ship. The room set up could be better if traveling with more then two people. The couch/bed is right in front of the door to the balcony so it is impossible to get to the balcony when it is out. There is also a small desk at the end of the bed when out. Several hangers and cubby shelving inside the closet but again limited if you like to pack a lot. A small safe in the closet. Stocked refrigerator (they will remove the items so you can use it if bring water or soda on board). The beds were comfortable. Read entire member review >>
We had one tiny night table and a very small desk. No other hard surfaces except a few small triangle shelves sticking out of the cabinet that held the TV and refrigerator. There was rust in the bathroom. The balcony seemed smaller than others I've had. Read entire member review >>
We got into our room and it was filthy. Used dishes from previous guests, personal toiletries in bathroom from previous guests. Snot or something smeared on wall that stayed there the whole trip. Outdated furnishings. Lamp shade was broken. Desk leg broken right off. It was an absolute slum. Read entire member review >>
Absolutely disappointing and not suitable for 3 adults - simply not enough space. On top of the inappropriate cabin layout, a lot of space in the already tiny cabin is wasted with e.g. a big minibar. When bed was pulled out, no chance to get out on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
The cabin area was a bit on the small side but with plenty of storage. The bathroom area was quite good and we didn't have a problem with size. There was always plenty of hot water and clean towels. The bed was a good size and actually a lot more comfortable than mine at home probably because it had a memory topper. The balcony area was small but we managed to sit several afternoons reading enjoying the limited sunshine. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9578. Grade BB Balcony Cabin. Great! Very quiet location. Perhaps, next time, I would choose one a little nearer to the elevators but we had no complaints whatsoever. Read entire member review >>
The Shower/wash room wasn't as clean as we would have liked (or expected). There was quite a lot of staining in the grouting tiles and some tiles were broken. Generally as you look around the washroom you can tell it's not had a good clean in a long time. Also there was dust evident around where the TV sits which again indicated that it hadn't been cleaned in a while. I don't know if this is because the turnaround time is so quick. We wiped it down in the end.
The lining of the curtains also had quite a lot of marks/stains and the tie backs were broken so you could not use them. I think our general impression was a lack of maintenance.
Balcony is small just enough room for two chairs and a very small table. Table had some stains; we cleaned it in the end, but does the job at the end of the day of some outdoor space...
Our room attendant was good, but I would avoid this room again as he sets up his cleaning cart outside so there was often noise, and also it is adjacient/above the main entrance/exit at Barcellona where they play loud welcoming music. Read entire member review >>
Never having been on a cruise before I did not know what to expect for a cabin. The cabin was great. I am a fussy person and I had no issues with this cabin. Space was big enough for a king sized bed and a 3/4 couch/futon, desk, chair and built in dresser. Closet space was great, lots of hangers and my husband discovered that the suitcases fit under the bed - great discovery as that left lots of room in the closet for shoes, backpacks and parcels.
The bed was super comfortable.
The balcony - everyone says it is small. I found it fine. I used it every morning and every evening to have my coffee and fresh air break on. I don't know why people want a large balcony - for the 15 mins a day you spend on it, why do u need it any larger? The ship provides lots of space for sunbathing, quiet rooms, etc. For me the balcony was great.
Bathroom was fantastic. You walked in to the sink area, on the right with a sliding door was the toilet and on the left with a sliding door was the shower. It was a good size.
Our location mid-ship/balcony was quiet. Rarely heard hall noises and definitely heard no noise from other rooms. We were across from a small crew area but again no noise what so ever. Read entire member review >>
This cabin had a queen bed and one nightstand, small couch, desk and deskchair. It could be tight at times. The closet and storage shelves were ample. The balcony was fine and it sure made the room feel bigger. The bathroom was the best part. It was divided into 3 sections. One side was a tiled shower with removable showerhead and a sliding door to close it off from the center section that contained the sink and some shelving. The other side had the toilet with a sliding door. The shower section was much larger than the shower stalls you usually get in standard cabins. Read entire member review >>
Balcony cabin a bit smaller than other balcony cabins I've had due to the two feet or so that are removed from the cabin and added to the bathroom for the sliding door that separated the toilet area. I think I'd rather the space be in the cabin as we never closed that door even thought we were two ladies sharing. All in all the cabin was nicely appointed and comfortable. Very comfortable beds.
Hey, all cruise lines - We need the Weather Channel in our rooms! I've never had this and it's always something guests are wondering about weather back home for travel. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was 9128. Great location...a short walk from the mid ship elevators. The bathroom was fine for me but a little tight for a big man. The balcony was small but still had 2 chairs and a small table. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small but with careful planning it won't seem so bad. Bathroom has three areas. To the right is a small area for the toilet, has a sliding tour. The middle area was the sink with a little shelving for toiletries and to the right was the shower with a removable shower head. The balcony was small but fine for two people any more then that you might have to do some shuffling to get around. Only one night stand in the room. Couch was right next to balcony if you needed it for a bed you might have trouble going out to the balcony. The TV was a flat screen. Closet was perfect for the two of us.

Our cabin was alwasy clean--a fine steward provided attentiion--cute towel animals were created during out trip--Our balcony was nice,but a bit small. We had enough room for all of our clothes and accessories as you could put yoru empty bags under your bed. The room had a very nice shower with space. Great beds and fine water. Basically very fine rooms,but naturally we all would love more space on ships,but our room was more than adquate. Read entire member review >>
The room was quiet, in a great location (near the aft stairs and elevator, but far enough away), plenty large for 2 people, enough storage space for 2, the bed(s) was comfortable, loved the balcony. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in 9132, a balcony cabin just behind the mid-point of the ship. We had cabins both above and below us, so there was no noise from the other decks. I have made the mistake of staying below the kitchen once and a disco another time....it pays to pay attention, believe me!! The cabin was a bit crowded, but we didn't spend a lot of time there anyway. It was nice to be able to leave the balcony door open and hear the sounds of the sea at night.

Awesome location,on dock side in Costa Maya, Guatemala, and New Orleans. You have a great view of the pilot hopping on the ship outside of Costa Maya. Very quiet location, but as with the other rooms on the Spirit, it was very small and dated. This room is a connecting room with the room next door, so beware of how loud you are as you can hear conversations through the connecting door. Read entire member review >>
Adequate square footage, large closet with at least 15 hangers and several corner shelves, locked safe, 2 robes for use, extra drawer space on the corner credenza, space for bags under the bed, king sized bed when mattresses are together, separate shower, lavatory, and toilet areas. Great thermostat control and wonderful balcony. Just enough for two. Read entire member review >>
Our balcony cabin was adequate. While smaller then other balcony cabins we have had, with less drawer space and limited seating except the bed, there was room under the bed for our suitcases. The cabin appeared cleaner then some we have been in. The bathroom was a good configuration and with the exception of the shower floor tiles, clean and attractive. The shower had a glass door rather then the "stick to our backside" shower curtain that most have. The shower temp was "set and forget," and pressure was great. The balcony was very small and the large amount of paint chips covering the deck remained there the entire trip.
Problems with the bathroom were our major cabin issue. The shower drain clogged. The toilet would not flush and even after repair had delays of up to two minutes after pressing the flush button. Water in sink ran brown while brushing teeth one day (a medical officer assured me "it won't hurt you"). The room and hallways smelled bad the entire trip. The sink also drained slowly until my husband pulled out the plug and adjusted a nut and screw.
Minor cabin problems included: the telephone, which needed replacing. Its keys stuck and no instruction cover or key identification was on phone. Safe buttons were worn down and illegible, requiring a visit by a ship's officer to ID keys noted on instructions. Our TV's cable had a ruined connector that kept falling out, and it displayed interference from a battery-operated fan. We needed a foam bed pad for the very hard bed; the stewards got us one overnight. A steward left wet towels on bed, leaving a soggy mess. In the head, soap and shampoo dispensers were left empty on the same day.
The sitting area between the bed and the balcony had an upholstered upright (dinner table) chair, a wobbly coffee table, and a settee that opens to a third twin. A desk with one shallow drawer, sat under a large mirror with sidelights adequate for makeup. The balconies are small, but had two comfortable mesh chairs and a floor-tile size table. The teak rail (in need of sanding and a fresh coat of polyurethane) mounts at a comfortable height above a thick glass safety plate instead of metal rails or wires. The overhead of the balcony needed rust relief and some paint of its own. Read entire member review >>
Small balcony, barely room for two adults. We had adjoining cabins, which have a connceting door you can open between the two, but their is no connecting door between the balconies. A pair of pliers and the removal of six bolts takes care of that, but freaked out the wife, and she made me put them back.
Beds were nice, lots of storage space, and the bathroom area is split into three, commode, shower, and sink, separated by sliding doors.
Tv is still the old 13 tube type, and does not offer interactive service Read entire member review >>
Really nice decor - the arched opening above the sliding door just adds some class. However, slightly less storage space than other NCL ships we have been on. Very efficient design to make the best possible use of the space. Read entire member review >>
