Cruise Critic Editor Rating: Cabins

Grand Classica has 658 staterooms, of which only the 10 suites have balconies. Considering how little time you spend in your room, a balcony really isn't necessary. The rooms range in size from 175 square feet for an inside cabin to 580 square feet for a suite. Rooms are fairly spartan, though there's more storage space than anyone could need for a two-night cruise.

Rooms, like most of the ship, feature decor in various shades of red, orange and russet with a swirly carpet. All have two twin beds (that can be pushed together to form a queen), mini-fridge, a small flat-screen TV, hair dryer and safe. Storage space includes four drawers with counter space on top and cabinet above that, and a closet with four drawers and plenty of space to hang clothing. 

There are two outlets in the room; the one by the small desk is a 220V, while the 110V is close to the floor in a corner. Bring a converter if you want to make use of both.

Bathrooms are small and bare-bones, but there's plenty of counter space. You'll find two bars of soap, and yellow hand and body towels. The flooring is the same wood decking you'd find next to a cruise ship pool. Showers are tiny but rounded outward so the shower curtain doesn't stick to you. Inside is a single dispenser of a gel that can be used for body and hair. (Bring your own if you're at all picky about the products you use.)

There are six accessible cabins onboard.

Inside: There are 216 175-squre-foot inside cabins on Grand Classica. Each has a small, semicircular desk with armchair.

Oceanview: The 420 ocean-view cabins are 175 square feet; each has a medium-sized porthole for outside views. Outside cabins have the same storage space as inside rooms but you'll find a square ottoman beneath the desk instead of a chair and next to the porthole is a round table and two armchairs. If you need more storage, there's a shelf beneath the porthole.

Junior Suite: There are only two junior suites onboard, each capable of holding up to four people; each is about 400 square feet and features a separate bedroom and living room. The bedroom differs from an ocean-view cabin in that it doesn't have the small desk, but otherwise you'll find the same porthole, bed configuration, closet space and mini-fridge/TV stand combo. The living room features a sofa bed, full desk with drawers, another TV and a porthole. The bathroom is a bit bigger than in a standard cabin but has less shelf space and a wall-mounted (and super weak) hair dryer.

Suite: The 10 suites onboard measure 580 square feet and are the only cabins with balconies on Grand Classica. The rooms resemble Junior Suites with the extra square footage going to the balcony. The bathroom here has a shower and large jetted tub. Suites can sleep up to four people. Passengers staying in suites get priority boarding.
