Safes—Every stateroom has its own safe in the closet—on all ships they are 14.5"d x 6"h x 12"w (37 cm. x 15 cm. x 30.5 cm.). The safes have a keypad that requires that you set and use a chosen four-digit code—pick something easy, but don’t use 1-2-3-4 for the sake of security!

Smoking—Smoking is prohibited in all staterooms and verandahs. Guests who are found smoking in staterooms or verandahs will be charged a $250 stateroom recovery fee, which covers a thorough cleaning. Smoking is allowed only in specific outdoor spaces (see page 204).

Special Needs—Barrier-free accessible rooms (16 total in categories S, 5, 6, 8, and 11 on the Magic Class, 37 total in categories V, T, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 11 on the Dream Class) are larger—see photos on page 150. Special features include open bed frames, ramped bathroom thresholds, fold-down shower seats, rails, emergency call buttons, and lowered bars. Accessible rooms can be reserved online or over the phone, and you may be required to provide written confirmation of your needs. Guests with young kids may request bed railings, pack-and-play cribs, and high chairs from the stateroom host/hostess. Strollers are available on a first-come, first-served basis from Guest Services, as are wheelchairs for emergencies. If you need a wheelchair while onboard or in ports, bring your own, or if sailing from Port Canaveral, rent one through Brevard Medical Equipment with delivery and pickup right at the ship (call 866-416-7383 or visit http://www.brevardmedicalequip.com). Beach wheelchairs are available on a first-come basis at Castaway Cay.

Stateroom Door—Most staterooms have a white, metal door and all have a touch-style key card lock and an inside dead bolt. Many cruisers like to decorate their door with magnets (and only magnets—no tape or stickers allowed). It may be helpful to know that the standard door is 72” (six feet) tall and 27” wide, and the circular room number plaque is 7½” in diameter.

Stateroom Host/Hostess—This crew member attends to all of your stateroom needs. Your stateroom host/hostess will tidy your stateroom once during the day and again in the evening while you’re at dinner (turndown), but does not bring ice unless you request it. If you want ice, look for a small card from your stateroom host/hostess, tick the appropriate checkbox to request ice, and leave the card out in plain sight. See page 568 for tipping.

Television—All staterooms in categories 4–11 have 22" flat-screen TVs mounted on a swivel arm. Categories R, S, T, and V may have multiple TVs, including a 42" flat screen. A printed channel listing with movie schedules is provided (see page 208 for a typical listing). Channels may change as you sail, especially when you’re in port—expect to see some international networks show up on a channel or two. Special channels offer cruise details, such as “What’s Afloat” and onboard shows. Recordings of special talks on golf, shore excursions, shopping, and debarkation are also shown. Check channel 13 to trace your voyage’s progress and channel 12 for bridge reports and views, including the current time, weather conditions, etc. You can also view your onboard photo portfolio and your room charges.

Temperature—Every stateroom has individual climate controls. The thermostat is normally located near the bed, high on the wall. If you get cold at night, there is an extra blanket—it’s usually stored in a cupboard by the TV. Consider bringing a small, portable fan, especially if you are staying in an inside stateroom. The staterooms can get very humid and warm when several people take showers in quick succession.
