These staterooms are great family accommodations. Bring the family and spread out in comfort. Features two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa, as well as a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony.
We paid for a balcony room and it was terrible. The room size was half the size of a Carnival balcony room. We could not fit our luggage (we had four carry on pieces of luggage and two checked in pieces of luggage) in the room and there was only one bed. The other bed was a pull out couch and a bed that came out of the ceiling. The balcony size was smaller than the Carnival ship and I was so disappointed in paying for such terrible rooms.

We had a port side balcony. The room was surprising spacious, and the views of the Na'Pali coastline from our room was amazing.
One point of note: The map on the website indicates you'd be able to see the Big Island's coast from this side. The captain switched direction on the trip around Hawai'i to see the lava flow, so we ended up on "the wrong side" for that viewing. Not complaining...seeing this is great, but wanted to note it if you think you can see it from your room. Read entire member review >>
I knew the room was going to be small going in & I was not wrong. Luckily, my 2 girls are small for their ages. With both the sofa bed pulled out & the Pullman bed down, we felt a bit like sardines in a floating can. Regardless of the size, we were able to find space for everything & sleep comfortably. There is a lot of storage under the bed. The room was clean. The coffee maker was a nice addition, not found on all cruise lines. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, a family balcony, was cramped with 2 adults and 2 children, but very nice. The balcony was larger than I had expected. The frig came stocked with soda and liquor for sale, but we did not want it and had it removed the first night there so we could store our water bottles there. You can bring water bottles back on the ship with you when you return to the ship each day. Each room is stocked with beach towels, so you don't need to pack those. They will wash and restock those towels daily. The bathroom had a medicine cabinet to hold you toiletries which was nice. We had a fairly large closet with about 6 or 7 shelves which helped with storage. There were only 4 drawers in the room. The balcony had 2 chairs and 2 stool/seats. The room does have a TV and safe. NOTE: Bring an electrical outlet extension. There were only 2 electrical outlets available in the room! Read entire member review >>
We were in room 9178 and had a balcony with a great view everyday. Room was always lovely and clean and looked after. Bathroom decent size, however if you are overweight I would imagine it would be more difficult. Rodel our cabin steward was very friendly and did an exceptional job. I can't believe he works 7 months on and has 10 weeks of and he has a family. I don't know how he does it! What some people do! Can't speak highly enough of him. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than some of the balcony cabins, but still very roomy and comfortable for five people. Featured a large king-bed, a murphy bed and a pull-out couch. Had a large closet and large bathroom with tub. We really enjoyed the espresso machine! Our balcony overlooked the midship pool area, which was a fun vantage point to watch all the action, but totally soundproof with the doors closed. Read entire member review >>
This was fine for 2 people. However we had 3. The pullout couch was hard as a rock. Luckily it was a cabin for 4 and there was a berth that pulled down from the ceiling my adult daughter slept there. She said it was good for comfort but the ladder going up is hard on the feet. Read entire member review >>
9654 Great Cabin and location Balcony just the right size.
Sufficient storage space close to elevators to access restaurants one way and just a little longer to midships to access Lobby theatres and lifts to disembark.
If you have 3 in the cabin would suggest using the bunk that lowers from the ceiling as opposed to using the sofa bed as this does restrict movement when the sofa bed is down. using the upper bunk allows use of the sofa throughout the day and night.
They did use the life boat below in Kona for shore excursions this was 3 decks below us just reminded me of the garbage truck in the morning. Had to relax no garbage to put out. Read entire member review >>
Cabin Number 9654 Family Balcony Stateroom (sleeps 4)
Consisted of 1 King Bed, 1 Fold Out Couch, 1 Dormer bed from ceiling
Smallish Cabin but for 7 days fine for 4 family members.
The cabins are well thought out, and very functional, with lots of wardrobe space and room under the beds for suitcases etc.
Even though the bathrooms are compact, they are more than adequate for most average sized people.
Balcony an added bonus, would definitely suggest paying the extra for added space and to see the lovely scenery.
Don't forget, you can pay a surcharge of $15.00 per bottle of wine to bring your own good wine on board.(This is done at the pier before you board) There is nothing nicer than having a lovely bottle of wine with friends on the balcony at 5.00pm! Read entire member review >>
Good sized room for a ship. The queen/king sized bed is really two full beds pushed together, but you can't feel any split between the two. Small but very efficient bathroom. Great Balcony. You're view is somewhat restricted at the sides of the balcony since deck 11 is wider than deck 10. But the trade off is that you have more privacy on your balcony. You're not greeted every morning by your next door neighbor. There is a connection between this room (10062) and the next (10060), as they can be purchased together by a family.

We really liked our cabin location. It was 3 floors below the Aloha Cafe and 2 and 3 floors above the Liberty and Skyline dining rooms. We could easily use the stairs if we needed to when the elevators were busy. We spent most of our time on the Aft/Middle part of the ship and our aft location fit perfectly. The room is a good size for 2 people, but 3 or 4 really pushes it. Since we were a family with kids, it worked, but don't try and put 2 couples in this room. Read entire member review >>
