Cruising on Carnival for the first time next year on the Dream and would like to hear from anyone as to how they liked their indoor rooms. Will have 4 in our room.

Hello laplabs, welcome to Cruise-Chat! All the cabins are indoors... Inside cabins are fine for your first cruise. You won't be spending much time in your cabin, and the price difference between an inside cabin and a balcony cabin gives you a lot more to spend on other fun things. While on the ship you'll be able to get peeks inside other cabins, and will probably say WOW! that sure looks a lot bigger than our cabin. I know you're going to love cruising and book another one - then you will know if you'll want to book a different category.

I've stayed in inside cabins before, just because the price made it worth it. Sometimes the price difference isn't as much and I'll book an outside or balcony cabin. I believe Carnival has bigger cabins then Royal Caribbean. It's been a long time since I've been on any other cruise line than Royal Caribbean. When is your cruise?

Sonny

laplabs-

Sonny is on the money here... Carnivals inside, oceanview and balcony cabins are all the same size (185 sq ft) not counting the balcony. There are some in each category that are bigger/smaller because of their location (like corner cabins or cabins near the front of the ship where it gets narrow) but for the most part they are the same size. If you want more space you have to move up to a suite, but that is considerably more costly than an inside.

As long as you booked an inside cabin that sleeps four you will be fine. And like Sonny said, you don't spend much time in your cabin anyway. Sleeping, bathing and changing clothes is about it. Bring a plug in night light though. The inside cabins are pitch black once you turn out the lights, we bring a night light so that there is some light in the room in case you need to get up in the middle of the night.

Hi laplabs, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

Unfortunately I haven't cruised on the Dream yet. However, the inside cabins on the Dream are the same as the Conquest class inside cabins in which I've stayed several times. I like them just fine. As the others have said you aren't usually in the cabin very much anyway. I usually book the inside cabins to save money, unless I get a deal on an oceanview. I also recommend to bring a night light as the cabins are indeed pitch black. This would be especially helpful with 4 in the cabin, as you don't someone getting up and bumping their head on the pull down beds.
