This mid-level cabin was great for just us, but cramming in a family of five, as Disney suggests, may be a little too cramped.
Though no room on a cruise ship is actually big, Disney uses the space in this Oceanview Stateroom well. The shower and the toilet are in two separate rooms. This piece of functional design makes it possible to have a whole family living simultaneously in one room. These two wash rooms are right off the entrance hallway, across from two large closets. The main room opens up to fit a king-sized bed, which can be exchanged for two twin beds instead. Attached to the main room, is a smaller living area that can be sectioned off by a curtain. In this living area is a sofa bed, with a chest serving as a coffee table, and a vanity mirror with desk. The desk has four storage drawers, one of which contains a hair dryer. The TV is also in this room, built into a shelve on top of the desk. The TV swivels such that you can watch it from the bed. Off of the living area is a small balcony.
We noticed that the bed was a little too soft. There just was not enough support for a good night’s sleep, but some people will enjoy sinking into this overly plush bed with four big pillows. On either side of the bed are nightstands with lamps and drawers, one side has a clock radio with an iPod port, the other has the phone.
Though the sofa can be turned into a twin bed, there is an extra pull down berth, and there is storage in the desk and the coffee table, we are not sure how comfortable this room would be with three or four people sleeping in it.
The toilet and the bathroom are separated, and both have a sink. This allows two people to preen at the same time, or for one to have a shower while the toilet remains available. There is not much storage space in either room. The bath tub is great, a little small perhaps, but it is is still nice to use.
There are two closets opposite the washrooms. Both have plenty of hangers, each with a built-in shelf. In the main room, there is a cabinet with three huge drawers. The desk in the living area has a few drawers as well, and the coffee table has a little storage space too.
The balcony is small, but has space for two chairs and a little table with an ashtray. We had the misfortune of reserving the last available balcony on the deck, and our view was obscured. There is a dividing wall that can be opened to the adjacent balcony if you are traveling with friends and family next door.
