We stayed in a Family Ocean View cabin (category FA) and were very pleased with the extra space. We were only 2 but the room will sleep up to 5. The couch unfolds for sleeping 2 and an overhead bunk comes down out of the ceiling over the couch to sleep 1 more. I expect it is nice that the adults in the bed(s) don’t knock their heads on this one. The second shower room is convenient as are the extra closets. 1 closet (in the middle with the life preservers stored in the bottom) strangely had no bar for hangers so was a large shelf that was not the best use of space. While it is small, ddults will find the shower only room easier to use for bathing as the tub in the full bathroom really constricts the space available and is more difficult to get in to and out of. I personally wonder how long the glass panels will last in these rooms. We had no trouble getting used to the card-based power and A/C slot at the door. The A/C was efficient and really cooled the room quickly. The lights on either side of the bed were not controlled by the card slot. The USB charging ports all worked. The TV was not in the best position, especially if you wanted to watch from the couch but we don’t watch much TV while cruising so it wasn’t much of an issue for us; it might be for a family. Noise was minimal except for occasional chair scraping in the evenings from the Culinary Arts Center 1 deck above. I found the walls held small magnets. Overall, we would book this for the 2 of us again in this location.
