Great for up to four guests, these staterooms come with two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to sleep up to two more. Because these are mid-ship staterooms and located on higher decks, you'll have easy access to everything on board.
Our inside cabin was small but good enough. We were a little disappointed with only one side table, instead of 2. My husband used a suitcase for his next to the bed book and stuff. The ventilation system is strong and makes sure the cabin & bathroom never smell. Read entire member review >>
I had a balcony room before and an inside room this time. Surprisingly, it wasn't as awful as I thought it would be. It was clean and the beds very comfortable, but it had zero personality and an awful painted mural of a window and beach scene. really? bad idea. If you can swing it, always go for a balcony room but if you can't, the inside rooms aren't dungeons especially if you're out and about all day. And this particular cabin has a larger than usual bathroom. Read entire member review >>
As I said in my review, this is a terrible cabin. It is directly underneath the Tivoli Pool Room. There are intermittent, loud, booming noises that will keep you awake. We were moved to cabin 4577 and it was much quieter but the sink unit came off the wall and we were forced to move again. The third cabin we had on this 12 day cruise was 8515. There were no problems with that cabin except that the female housekeeper/room attendant did the bare minimum while the male housekeepers/room attendants for other two rooms provided ice and did the towel animals.

I found the inside cabin very nice and always clean.
The only issue was the toilet - it did have a mind of it's own on some days - sometimes it just would not flush when you wanted it too - but overall it was a nice cabin. Read entire member review >>
Room: We had a tenth floor middle interior room. Comparing it to the slightly upgraded eighth floor room we had in the fall, which had a window, but no balcony in Europe, we missed the second night stand by the bed, a second trash can, and the “mini couch”. The room was clean, and the bed was comfy. However, we had a few bathroom floor tiles stick to our feet and actually come out of the floor. It took two tries to make the repairs. Maintenance men glued and regrouted at least ⅓ of the floor. It was slight inconvenience but at least that fixed the problem. The Spirit is showing it’s 18 years of age. Our cabin steward was excellent however; timely cleaning and always friendly, great towel animals. Read entire member review >>
We were in an inside cabin on level 6. Unfortunately, the weather/sea was rough and so we could feel the motion more and this was uncomfortable most of the time. Plenty of room and the bathroom was well thought out. I did like the idea of the hair dryer being attached to the wall in the bathroom but it did get very hot where you held. The beds were very hard and every day I woke up aching every morning. Our stateroom man Ida was very good. He was hard working, polite and not intrusive. (Our last cruise on the Royal Caribbean, the man there was very chatty and had a sob story which made us uncomfortable). Read entire member review >>
also son had 10591; we were both very happy to have our own space and loved our supportive attendants and excellent service when needed. were not much in the room as we early up and out and early to bed; some tv and plenty of movies available in subtitles. plus news and ship info. large clean shower and bath. with so many ports not too much room time Read entire member review >>
Went for the guaranteed cabin option which turned out to be a mistake. Not only did we not get an upgrade (fair enough) but we ended up with 2 skinny single beds with a giant pole in the middle of the cabin...we had at least requested 2 beds pushed together, but this turned out to be a non option also. Otherwise it was satisfactory, clean, reasonably well appointed and fair size. If you really listened hard late at night you could just hear the speakers from Champagne Charlies below, but it was not really an issue for us. TV channels boring and repetitive (same movies same time every day) but we didn't go on vacation to watch TV. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very old. The reading lights for the bed were at the same level as the pillows. When reading in the evening, I was basically sitting on them.
Tip. Keep your bathroom door open or the air conditioning in the room won't work (the room will become pressurized, but there is a vent in the bathroom). Read entire member review >>
I thought there would be noise from lift. There was no noise from lift. As we booked last minute we booked the cheapest longest cruise possible I will tell you the amazing price we got at the end. We booked two inside cabins on deck 10.
when we got to the cabins I wasn't disappointed, they were compact but had everything a balcony room had except the sea view and balcony. Well the rooms are only for sleeping in. Read entire member review >>
We had an interior room on 10th floor. 146 sq ft. It was quaint. Nothing exciting. The fact we had no sunlight coming in our room made it a little tough for me. Closet had ample space with cubby spots, bathroom is tight, pillows were flatter than pancakes, bed was fair, contained room safe, it was pretty tight for 2 people to get around.

The inside rooms on ships are always small and this was no exception. However, usually when there are four people to a room, there are two sets of "bunk" beds on each side of the room. In this room, there was only one lower bed on one side, an upper and lower bunk on the other side, and a pull out mattress from under the bunks. I don't understand why there weren't two upper bunks. Had I been aware of this set-up when I was booking, we probably would have booked two seperate rooms. Then, because the ship used to sail in the far east before NCL bought it, there was only one standard US outlet and two foreign outlets and the hairdryer in the bathroom blew nothing more than a gentle breeze which wouldn't even dry your hands. Absolutely useless. Since the electricity running through the rooms couldn't accommodate the wattage of American hair dryers, you couldn't even bring your own. I liked the set up of the bathroom. The shower seemed roomier than on other cruise ships, and there was a glass door rather than a useless curtain. Because of this, all of the water was contained when people showered and didn't soak the rest of the bathroom floor. Another thing I didn't like was that the bathrooms are equipped with dispensers for shampoo and shower gel and usually it's shampoo/conditioner, but this was only shampoo. After sitting in the pool or hot tub or swimming in the sea, hair gets lots of knots and it's impossible to get those out with shampoo only. -- no iron in the room. You had to ask to borrow one. Other than that, the room was fine. There were a good amount of hangers in the closet, and we each took a closet cubby and a drawer for clothing storage and there were shelves in the bathroom around the mirror. The light in the cabin was terrible for makeup application. Carnival supplies a lighted, swing-out magnifying mirror in the bathroom, and I did miss that on this ship. We were able to store our suitcases under the bed, so that helped keep the room tidy too. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine - didn't spend much time there anyway - sink clogged, and bathroom light died, but our steward, Frankie was there to fix
Our location was great - midship, so not too far a walk to anywhere Read entire member review >>
The cabin was perfectly adequate for being an inside cabin. The washroom was a pleasant surprise - glass shower door and no curtain. We were faily close to mid-ship which helps with movement. The bed was comfortable and there was a flat screen tv. No complaints about the cabin. Read entire member review >>
We had an issue where I feared there might be some type of biting insect in the cabin. I asked at the front desk if someone would check the room to see if maybe someone might have brought sand fleas into the room or something. In less than 10 minutes...here comes the calvary! Several people stripped the room, bedding and all items in the cabin were carefully inspected by several people. The room was sprayed and we were asked to stay out for 2 hours. There was an immediate follow up call to assure us there was nothing in the cabin and we were given a nice bottle of wine for our trouble.
Now thats what I call customer service!! Read entire member review >>
We were in an inside cabin on deck 11 aft. It was in a very convenient location - one floor up was the pool and buffet. The only problem was around 5am when we could hear loungers in the pool area being moved. Read entire member review >>
As mentioned in the review, there is a pipe in the middle of the room, eight inch floor to ceiling. Other than that the room was adequate and the bath was the largest we have had on a cruise ship. Great access to stern deck area. Read entire member review >>
HORRIBLE. Too small. Not clean. We had 3 people in our room and there was not room for all 3 of us. Only 1 plug. Not a double outlet. The one plug was by the table. I have a C-Pap machine. If I wanted to use my machine, I had to sleep with my head at the foot of the bed. Hair and lint all over the sheets. One night we had what looked like a urine stain on our comforter. Hairs were in the sink after they were done "cleaning." I never even saw a cabin steward. There was another plug in the bathroom but it didn't work. Read entire member review >>
Fairly convenient location and not too much nose or traffic. The cabin steward was not as good as the others in the area seemed to be. I think he had to split his time with us and a group of VIP rooms on the other side of the ship, so we rarely saw him.
The closet and drawer space was barely large enough for the 4 of us.
The room safe is not large enough for a laptop PC. Read entire member review >>
My husband and I booked late so we had an interior cabin. Unlike our friends who all had a rather plain cabin in the lower decks, we were given a very nice cabin (#10681) that appeared to be far more spacious and better designed than the regular interior cabins. We loved it. It was nicely designed, plenty of storage, and seemed to be tucked away from the main traffic pattern. Later we learned that we were backed up to the hallway with the daycare and dreaded the noise that was to come. That never turned into being a problem. With the exception of the door closing repeatedly in the morning, we never heard noise from the daycare at all. Nor did we hear any noise coming from the kiddie pool located outside of the door near our cabin.
Our only issue with our cabin was a toilet that seeped from the bottom emitting a foul odor periodically throughout the cruise. Our room steward did an amazing job of staying on top of cleaning the leakage as frequently as possible so that we could get through the week without being driven from the cabin. There was also one point when the toilet wouldn't flush at all. We overheard our cabin neighbors complaining of the same thing, so we called our steward who called maintenance. The issue was fixed within 15 minutes. Apparently it was some sort of fuse or power issue that controlled the vacuum for the toilets. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 10627 is an inside cabin. Like all inside cabins, space is at a premium, but for 2 people there is plenty. The storage space is outstanding with a spacious closet, closet shelving and additional drawer space outside the closet. It is 2 floors from the pool/buffet and 4 floors from the formal dining room. Turn one direction for the midships staircase up to the pool area; turn the other direction to go to the aft staircase to the dining room. Very quiet room. The absolute best part is that the shower has a sliding glass door which is so much better than the shower curtain that wants to plaster itself to your side most of the time!

Walls are SUPER thin! I could hear conversations coming from the next room. I love the feel of turning off the light, being completly dark, putting the pillow over my head and going SOUND to sleep! If I was not such a sound sleeper, might have bothered me. Read entire member review >>
Noisy! Near a utility closet so I was woken every morning very very early (5:30-6:00) I suspect the room stewards use it to keep their supplies in. Lots of banging. Impossible to sleep through the loud noise. Read entire member review >>
Room: Interior cabin 11535, deck 11, right under the Spa. It is very quiet because of this. We will however, not book an interior cabin again. A little light from the outside world would have been much appreciated. Our fault, no one else's. The shower was quite large and you could fit two people into it easily. There was a small burrow with 4 drawers and the closet had five shelves in it to store clothing. There was also ample hangers to hang our clothes. Read entire member review >>
The trundle bed pulled out for a fourth person created some logistical difficulties. There was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was nice sized with a large shower. If you listen carefully during peak meal times, you can hear silverware rattling from the buffet above on deck 12. There was no noise to disturb our sleeping. Read entire member review >>
Inside cabin, #11079, worked just fine for the four of us. Two adults and two teenagers ages 13 & 17. Use the over-the-door shoe holder to hold everything that would normally land on the counter top. Read entire member review >>
We were in room 10065 which was clean and nice. The inside room was not large but seemed about the same size and those on Carnival. Room size is not a big concern to us because the only time we spend in the room is to get cleaned up, prepare for meals and sleep. The bathroom was big enough and had a glass shower door instead of curtain. There was plenty of closet space and 4 dresser drawers. The safe allowed you to set your own 4 digit code. There were about 5 one foot square cubby holes in the closet.
The room and hallway were quite. The location was good because it was in the middle of the theater and main areas on decks 7 & 8 and the pool / Raffels on 12. Read entire member review >>
We liked our cabin - it was not the traditional inside cabin, and we liked the fact that it was "sideways" along the interior hallway, rather than a deep cavern as we have had in the past. (We prefer inside cabins.) The inside wall of the tenth deck interior cabin we had was located alongside an open area above the public areas (decks 7 & 8), and therefore, there were no noises from that long wall. When you look up from those decks, all you see are fake balconies and mirrors. So it was pretty quiet, except for the one afternoon that a young couple decided it would be a good idea for their kids to run off some of their excess energy in our hallway. Tough to take a nap under those conditions, but except for the kids, we never heard anyone in the hallway. Because the cabin is "sideways", we had a hallway that separated the bathroom and the 6' closet, and we had more storage space at the end of that hallway. The bathroom was big, but it was a little musty smelling (although not enough to complain), with sliding glass doors in the wide shower stall, and plenty of hot water at all times. Good storage in the bathroom as well, and a half-hearted blowdryer on the wall that did the job, however weakly. There was a full-length mirror, a television with a rather shoddy-looking/acting remote (duct-taped together), a coffeemaker/supplies, icebucket and water glasses, two bottles of water (UPCHARGE of $4.50 each!) and an old safe with difficult to understand instructions, as the symbols were worn off the programming buttons. We had a desk/chair and several drawers in the cabin. We did not have a refrigerator. Because we had the bed as a queen, we only had one bedside table. We did have great cabin stewards, Edwardo and Rachel, and our cabin was tidied up every time we left it. We did not get clean sheets throughout the cruise, which was a little surprising based on prior experiences. Bed was very comfortable, although a couple of times, it began to separate in the middle. We had a flickering light one day, and called the problem in to the desk, and an electrician came and changed the lightbulb within a couple of hours. There was a phone on the bedside table, and according to the phone, you could program a wake-up call on it, but we never were able to figure it out. Better call reception for a wake-up, and ask for a non-traditional time, as you won't get a call at the hour or half-hour - these wake-up calls are done individually, not with a computer, so it takes time.
