With room for up to four guests, these staterooms have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a pull out sofa to accommodate up to two more. Along with a sitting area, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and a private balcony with an amazing view.
Cabin was very good. Just enough room, and our steward was excellent. No obstructed view, and even though we weren't out there a lot, we enjoyed the views from our balcony. Read entire member review >>
A lovely cabin. It was spacious and had a very comfortable king sized bed, T.V. a coach, fridge, safe and coffee making facilities. Cleverly laid out bathroom with shower and plenty of towels and a hair dryer. The cabin was attended to twice a day and kept very clean. Towel art left in the evening. The balcony was a reasonable size with two chairs and a table. Being Aft meant some rocking when waves grew higher. The air conditioning was fairly loud but it blocked out any other noises. We slept soundly and were not disturbed once. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was larger than our last cruise on MSC Magnifica and we generally preferred the layout, although it was clearly older and was more worn that that ship. Another factor that was good was the choice of TV channels and although you are not there to watch TV when in the cabin it was good to have a range of movies and new channels in either Spanish or English.
During swell the room, which is closer to the front of the ship, was a bit more than we would have liked but nothing too much as long as you take your seasick medications. Read entire member review >>
Great location near aft elevators that go up to the buffet and down to the Seven Seas main dining room and the Stardust theatre.
Seemed more spacious that other balconies we have had. Lots of storage spaces. Bathroom is adequate with shelves on either side of the mirror. Wish the hair dryer was not in the bathroom, but by the vanity mirror in the cabin. No little coffee table in front of the couch, but really didn't miss it. Randolf, our cabin stewart was awesome. He greeted us by name every morning, made sure we had ice each day and seemed generally interested as if things were going okay with us. Read entire member review >>
Accessible cabin was spacious and well designed. We booked it for the hearing impaired features, expecting to have adequate access to captioning of announcements/CCTV programming. Instead we got an alarm clock that went off like a bomb at midnight, shaking the entire room and putting us into a panic, a strobe light that went berserk every time somebody opened the stateroom door, and a pager that ONLY captioned emergency announcements. Grr. We disabled all the helpful devices. Loved the room, but don't feel justified in taking an accessible room from somebody who really needs it. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of storage, plenty of space, plenty of privacy. I wonder if I could put that small a 3-piece bathroom with that much efficiency in my home...they have IKEA beat hands down. Read entire member review >>
This is an excellent cabin and would choose it again with no hesitation for two. For three it would be tight with the pull-out and the bathrooms are small (in all but the mini-suites and above), but for the price of a regular balcony, you get one twice the size in a very quiet section of the ship. For viewing glaciers, this room or the same on the opposite side (or the same on the 8th or 10th deck) can't be beat. I have read this room is slightly smaller than some but we were in our friend's aft balcony and the room size was the same. There is plenty of cabinet storage for two and suitcases fit right under the bed. Read entire member review >>
Standard balcony cabin on Deck 10. Bathroom was a little tight but they always are. We had a large bed and a couch sitting area. There is TV and movies to watch if you like. Definitely recommend a balcony for an Alaska cruise. We saw several whales from our balcony. Other than the last day/night into Seward there is always good scenery on both sides of ship.

Cabin was smaller than what we're used to, having sailed HAL mostly and had similar categories. The balcony was a disappointment as there was much less room than we're familiar with; 2 upright chairs, a small table and 2 adults was close to capacity. Read entire member review >>
Very nice room. The door out to the balcony was hard to open, hard to close, and didn't close on its own, which I've never seen before. Bathroom and shower stall were ridiculously small compared to any cruise I've been on (all 11). Read entire member review >>
My recommendation, get a cabin with a balcony and do not room with 4 people. If there are more than 2 people, get a suite!
The cabin was very small. Barely any room for 4 people and their suitcases. The balcony great! The tv had some awesome channels. The bathroom was small but nice. The room was always clean and they left very nice towel animals for us every night. The bed was comfortable, and the futon wasn't too bad either. It's just way too small for a family of 4.

The room was cold, no heat - had to get more blankets. They put two twin beds instead of one single and your head hit the lights that would normally be on the side of the bed. In the middle of the night your pillow would hit the light switch and turn on the lights. Room was clean, bed & pillows were comfortable. Our room was a starboard balcony and was great to have that view. Read entire member review >>
The balcony cabin was wheel chair accessible and very spacious. The blinking door bell and phone were a nice touch for those who needed them. The bathroom was accessible though sometimes it was difficult to keep it dry while taking a shower. I would have liked a pull down grab bar by the toilet, but the provided bars were enough to get up and down. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very nice and clean, but not too big. There were many storage shelves. Toilet was nice an clean, but too small. Shower was good, water pressure was great. I liked the cabin. Read entire member review >>
We were on Deck 9 aft cabin 9073 – two decks directly below Lido and a few decks above one of the MDR’s. The balcony cabin was roomy enough for us and our luggage, the balcony was a good size (bigger than many on the newer ships) and the bed was comfortable. As usual the closet doors open toward the bathroom door so you have to maneuver around to get stuff out. The bathroom was adequate but a tad smaller than we are used to. We were aware of the dreaded shower curtain having a life of its own so we followed other posters advice and brought over sized clothes pins to put on the bottom of the curtain to keep it in place. The shower had great water pressure but was very small. The actual toilet area was really small. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9229: Lovely balcony stateroom, midship. Bed very comfortable. Couch, not so much - but who sits on the couch? Flat screen TV. Frig. Had everything a stateroom should have - quite nice. Read entire member review >>
Engine noises - when slowing, pushing off from piers, etc - were more noticeable on this ship in this cabin. I woke up in the middle of the night - due to slowing down - (braking type maneuver) where engines must reverse) - so - if that might upset you, better move to forward section or go for mid ship - we noticed much less nose just about 10 cabins toward the center. otherwise good location - up two decks to Cafe, and down four to Dining room -- but.... the ship isn't that big - so nothing is that far off.

Our cabin was clean, complete with coffee maker and bathrobes. I will add, the furniture is beginning to show its age, but that didn't affect us at all. The most important thing was the cabin and the balcony were always clean. We enjoy being aft, it is quiet. The downfall, our legs got a better workout than they bargained for.

We loved our cabin. Plenty of storage space and recently upgraded TV. The bathroom was adequate. The best part was our balcony where spent a great deal of time. We loved that we could keep the door open all night long and listen to the sea. Read entire member review >>
Small balcony room. Shower was too small. Closet and drawer space was minimal. Balcony was large since we were the last balcony on the 9th Deck on the starboard side. Cabin steward was great. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8075 - Balcony cabin, Category BD, Starboard side, Aft. Great layout, lots of storage. Bathroom has 3 built-in shelves on each side of the sink for storage. Closet has hanging space and there are also fold down shelves with additional hanging space, plus shelves on the side and wire baskets. Beds were firm and fairly comfortable. Balcony had 2 chairs and a small round table and was a little larger than normal. This cabin is over the Stardust Theater. You can hear the noise from the theater, but it wasn't much of an annoyance because it wasn't used that much. Afternoons there was an hour rehearsal and then a show at night from 7:30-8:30 and 9:30-10:30. We weren't in the cabin much when it was in use and when we were it didn't really bother us and I would book it again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8060' deck 8 towards the stern. We had no problems with this cabin other than the chairs on the balcony rocked in the wind making it noisy at night but easily fixed by laying them down when it was windy. The showers are very small but overall a comfortable cabin far enough away from the lifts and stairs to be quiet, close enough for convenience. Read entire member review >>
Ample storage. Lighted closet with bins & shelves, complimentary robes while there. great balcony,private,loud when chairs are scooted. Little couch that folds out. Mini fridge but too loaded with mini bar items. Needs updated tv & blow dryer. Plenty of towel bars. Could use more clothing hooks for towels, swimsuits. Coffee maker needed detailing. Nice use of mirror & lights near king-sized bed. Became a little uncomfortable after day 5. Room was very soundproof. Only heard a hall party once. Was able to put luggage under bed. Would like to have mini microwave for late night tea or coffee reheats. Safe was small but functional. Wireless service sometimes sketchy in cabin. Read entire member review >>
Nice design on the sofa bed as not to block the path to the balcony. Plenty of storage space. Well designed cabin in general except for round shower. Needs new TV. Balconies cannot open to connect (if your family is next door). Good temp control. Great location to access forward elevators and stairs. Read entire member review >>
CABIN 8262. VERY GOOD LOCATION. CLOSE TO ELEVATORS BUT NOT TO CLOSE. ABOVE GIFT SHOP WHICH MEANT IT WAS QUIET AT NIGHT. I WAS IMPRESSED THAT THE DRAPES FOR THE BALCONY OVERLAPPED SO THE CABIN WAS VERY DARK. Read entire member review >>
The cabin comfortably slept 3 with a bed that was big enough for 2 and a pull out couch which actually could have slept 2. The balcony was spacious, and provided a great view. The bathroom was small, but a good size for a cruise ship and was adequate. One thing the this ship didn't have was flat screen televisions, something that other ships have switched to. The Sun opts for small large back TV's which I found fine for the small room. Read entire member review >>
Wonderfully quiet, excellent location, good balcony, entrance congested by front, wardrobe and bathroom doors opening into the same space, convertible couch not the most comfortable of seats, plenty of hanging and drawer space, coffee maker a plus, bathroom and shower compact but very good.

Cabin 8261: Located aft near the elevators and stairs. One flight down to the shops and casino. Another flight down to the Seven Seas main dining room. Quiet. Comfortable bed. Has a smallish sofa bed. Good size closet with 4 medium size bins. Shelves and 7 large drawers for clothes, etc. Balcony was comfortable for 2 but very tight for 4 guests.

Cabin: 9274, BB Category Balcony, aft. The room was big enough for the two of us and our bags fit nicely in the closet and under the bed. The balcony was quite spacious and we spent a lot of time out there. I do not like crowds so not having to clamor for viewing space on the public areas was priceless. Reading a book or sipping a drink as the amazing scenery passed you by was incredible. The bathroom is small, yet functional. The bathroom size bothered my SO but was okay for me. Next time I'd go for a mini-suite if were could afford it, just for the added space. Read entire member review >>
