The Family Inside Staterooms are a great and affordable way for you to bring the whole family along. With room for up to five, you'll have two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and some staterooms have pull down beds to accommodate two more. Plus you'll have a sitting area and access to all kinds of amenities, like room service and so much more.
Most people were looking for a balcony to see scenery, but by the time we booked even a room with a window was 50% more expensive. In my opinion we got the next best thing which was a "Family Inside" room which was larger than normal inside room. I believe the total cost was $7 more for the entire trip and we went from ~110 up to 140 sq feet. It was perfect for our family of 3 with our daughter sleeping on a wall mounted bed. We had plenty of space and the extra room made it much more comfortable. Read entire member review >>
I had a large family inside cabin for a solo passenger.
The cabin was 172 square foot and the second largest inside cabin I have ever stayed in. This cabin can sleep although more than 4 people in it would be claustrophobic.
It had all the amenities required. The bathroom with w/c was excellent. My only gripes were that you could not view you account on the TV and the TV was dated. But who goes on a cruise to watch TV. Also no tea and coffee making facilities in the cabin but it is an American ship and Americans have different tastes. The bed was soft and comfortable and the sofa was very good.

Adequate space for two - our friends were upgraded, and I actually liked our cabin better! Prefer to sleep in dark places and that is all we used our room for so it was perfect. Was also quiet for the entire trip. Read entire member review >>
Very large handicapped cabine with 249 sq. ft. Was advertised for 5 occupants but the closet was too small for even our clothes (and we were 2). Our cabain steward, Jennifer, was excellent but she is getting married and this was her last contract. Read entire member review >>
My wife and I were on 0329 (they leave off the first digit for the upper decks so that every cabin has a 4 digit room number – we were on deck 10) and the in-laws in 8314. The in-laws also have been on a couple of dozen cruises and they were very pleasantly surprised with their room. We found that the extra room in the family inside (about 30 square feet more than the basic inside cabin) was very noticeable and made for a much more spacious cabin. I can’t imagine any couple possibly filling up the storage spaces, unless they’re traveling with multiple steamer trunks. We certainly don’t travel “light” and we still had several drawers/ shelves unused. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 0121 is aft, tenth deck. It is a family inside cabin. It is quite large. It is about twice as large as a regular inside cabin. There is a large fold out couch (can sleep two people), and two beds that make a queen when put together. The beds were a little hard. Ask for egg crates if they have any. The bathroom is tiny but clean. It is one of those circle showers with a shower curtain. You could take a shower, use the commode and brush your teeth in the sink without moving! We liked it better than the mini suite we usually get! Read entire member review >>
Very roomy, lots of storage, large sofa that makes into a bed as well as a pull down bed. Quiet hallway, but we felt a lot of ship movement - probably because we were in the front of the ship. We could hear the room stewards through our wall because there is a work room right next to us - we heard ice buckets, etc. But it was quiet at night. Read entire member review >>
The closest space was amazing! We didn't even use it all and it was me, my fiancee, and my two baby daughters! The showers are on the smaller side but definitely manageable. The room is spacious because of the layout. We had two porta cribs in there and still had plenty of walk room and play room for the girls. Read entire member review >>
