They sure are small, but he’s lucky to have a single berth, even with twin share bathroom (if you could call it that lol). Many are two share bunk style in a not much larger cabin space!

Certainly would force you to pack Light!

That's luxury compared with a Millennium class crew cabin, and my DD had to share it too!

Note: the size depends also on the role of the crew. This man seems to be relatively high on status (but not being an official, I didn't notice uniforms), so a single cabin. I think he is a qualified mechanic (machine room or so), because of helmet with hear protection in ready ready to take position.


But nice to see that also crew needs to insert card several times, before getting the green light.

Yes, although I can’t say it’s ever been one of my goals to be able to sit on the loo and shower at the same time!

Right on...and, I bet NO SALT water showers.

Or, with fresh water,
Shower on, shower off,
Lather up,
Shower on, rinse,
Shower off.....

I did not think it looked bad. I been on behind the scene tours on several cruise lines and they always left that out.



My son was a college dormitory resident assistant (a hall monitor) a few years ago at a large SEC university. I recall crashing in his dorm room to catch a football game and the hall had a shared large shower room for the whole floor (maybe 40 male freshmen and sophomores). Did not change much from when I went to college a long time ago

LOL I was thinking that too. Sitmar Fairwind in 1982. Our family of four shared an oceanview room with a little porthole. I was only 12 at the time but could touch both walls of the bathroom with my arms extended. And to think the Oasis class ships are more than 10x the size of the Fairwind. OP thank you for posting, very cool to see!

We were on American Hawaii Cruise Lines, SS Constitution, 1991. Your cabin sounds exactly what ours was like.

DH would have loved quarters like this when he was sailing with our Navy. Even as a LCDR he had to share a cabin. And the toilets/showers were down the hall. Their own TV and fridge? Forget it.

Not to mention -- no worries about getting stuck in a berth located underneath the catapult! (Our DS once spent the better part of a year, on the USS Nimitz.)

I am also a teenage veteran of the Fairwind. I remember 2 twins and 2 bunk beds and a tiny porthole. No recollection of the bathroom. However, there was a bathtub around the corner in a small room. My Mom bathed every night and we always booked the same room so she could use it. Doubt others even knew it existed 😀
