Go to the middle and lower cabins if you experience sea sickness (motion sickness). Avoid being above or below noisy public areas, eg. pubs, Promenade, etc. RCCL does a good job of noise reduction, but rumor has it it isn't 100%

Bring a flashlight in case you have to go to the bathroom at night. Interior cabins are as dark as a tomb with the lights off.

We had an interior cabin on the 7th deck of the Navigator of the Seas and were very pleased with it. I would NOT have cared for any cabin on Deck 2 of this ship because of the difficulty of getting an elevator very quickly. On Deck 7 you were never too far from either the dining rooms or the entertainment venues, so using the ladders (stairs to us landlubbers!) was usually the option we chose.

We might be sailing the Mariner next summer, if the cabins are anything bigger than the Sovereigns. I called RCL about the size, and a normaly outside was 125 sq.feet. I'm praying that the newer ships will be a bit bigger. We were on the Carnival Pride and had a normal stateroom, not a suite, and it was 185 sq. feet plus like a 90 st.ft balcony. All of carnival's rooms are the same size: no ocean view, larger ocean view, deluxe ocean view, etc. I mean, whats up with that?? When carnivals interior rooms are the same 185 sq. feet as the outside. They only have 2 larger classes 11 and 12 which are both suites. I would like to try the mariner, but dont want to pay double a normaly balcony cabin rate (cat. E1) just to get a bigger room where we wont be like sardines. Anyways, i'll stop my complaining.

We have sailed in interior cabins on 5 different RCCL ships. LOVE their cabins more than any other lines. Their space is put to such good use! and it seems there are all sorts of cabinets and cubby hole we have NOT found on Carnival's inside cabins, which are more plain. And we find the curtains between the dressing area and the bed area on RCCL's ships VERY handy! The smaller bar venues, the casino, the stores, etc., won't cause any extra noise if above or below you. Sometimes if you get next to a linen closet or storage room (or whatever those are) you might hear extra banging around sometimes. We once were below the "stage" where they sometimes played pre-dinner music and didn't hear anything. However, we were just down the hall from the entry to the showroom on the Carnival Pride and when this percussion group performed or practiced, we certainly heard that! A previous time we were on the Carnival Destiny and there was a crew party out on deck one nt. Our cabin was located beneath a hot tub area and we could still hear the party music from the bass guitar very well until about 2 a.m. when they stopped. I wouldn't get above or below a disco or showroom IF I could help it. Also, there is a bit more movement in the very front or very rear of the ships, though some people find that fun. Happy sailing!

P.S. I forgot to mention that we had an interior cabin on the Explorer (Voyage class) in March and it was very nice. Similar to the others.

Just leave the TV on, set to the outside camera ( which is on 24/7) channel and you will have your own 19" port hole and a night light to use if nature calls in the middle of the night. We,ve been on 12 cruises and like the insde cabins . The money we save can be used on more important things like the Wheel of Fortune Slot Machines. Just relax and enjoy you cruise. Just pack a lot of good attitude , you'll love it!! Voyager 9/20

I agree. I've been on several cruises, and always book inside cabin, and try to get inside-guarantee. The extra $$$s for an outside isn't worth it to me (although I've been bumped to outside). I spend so little time in the room, that an outside window is of little value. The only exception I can think of where I would be more likely to pay is something like an Alaskan cruise where the elements make it difficult to stay on deck, but the scenary is such that you don't want to miss it. Then, I think the best option is a balcony.
