Interior room darkness

Recommended Posts

Since most interior rooms have no windows, Interior rooms are pretty dark. If not just completely pitch black. I normally buy a free standing pop light to keep in the bathroom and sleep with the TV on. You can get night lights and such from the Dollar Tree as most cruise lines do not have any.

No the interior cabins do not have any kind of nightlight in the stateroom. 
mid you want a night light you can purchase one from any store that sells more than groceries like Walmart, Target, Publix, Winn Dixie, Dollar Stores or Amazon if you really want a nightlight for your interior cabin.

Dollar Tree sells two packs of LED tea lights that work great as night lights. We have some VERY small ones that do not have the flicker effect that surprisingly last a long time. They're about 1/2  an inch high and about as big around as a quarter.

Over the course of two cruises we've only used one of them all night, every night (14 full nights).

Bathroom light may work..there is a space between the door and floor that lets a little light out so that maybe an option...on HOS(and maybe other newer ships?) there were 2 settings to the bathroom light if I remember correctly.

On the Oasis there was a "nightlight" in the bathroom that stayed on all the time.  Do the interior rooms not have that light?  I asked how to turn it off and was told it was for safety.

I’ve never found interior rooms to be 100% dark. 

There’s always been a little bit of light that leaks through the peephole and at the bottom. 
 

We used a battery tea light the first night we stayed in one but have not used one since. 
 

ymmv

I use a clock app on my kindle (which I leave plugged in all night). This way I get a clock and a night light with no extra stuff to carry.

A cell phone that's set to not go completely dark serves the same purpose.

I think it depends on the ship class.  I was on Enchantment (older ship) and it was pretty dark in my Interior Room.  I'm talking pretty much pitch black.  There was a very small sliver of light coming from the crack of the floor leading to the hall but that was it.

Even when we get an interior room with a window (e.g. promenade) or a balcony room, we keep the washroom light on for our kids.  That way, when they get up in the middle of the night, especially in unfamiliar surroundings with not a lot space, they can see their way to the washroom.

Symphony (I have heard some of the other Oasis class as well) has a small nightlight in the bathroom.  We led the door ajar and it was just enough to get to the bathroom but was not too bright.  You can always close the bathroom door and it was dark as well.

We’ve been on several cruises and really like the inside rooms due to the price. We have been using soft light tea lights, battery operated. 1-2 in the cabin and one in the bathroom to leave on all night. Works great!

I gotta say....the pitch blackness of an interior room is IMPRESSIVE. When you wake up, you have absolutely ZERO idea what time it is. The biggest item thats a must for me is a clock. 

The darkness is enough to make a blind man scared

Its an eerie feeling for sure. Some people have said interior rooms dont get completely dark....but ive done 4 and thats not my experience. When I wake up, I cant see my hand in front of my face, and I have no concept of time.  Its an interesting feeling!!! My wife absolutely loves it! For our upcoming cruise, were going to have our two little ones with us, so were using tea lights as night lights....

The newer ships tend to have nightlights in the restrooms. If you have a virtual view or virtual balcony, you can leave that monitor on. There is just enough light from the monitor that I have had to turn it off at night. (but the virtual options would be on Navigator and newer ships anyway) Also, if you do decide to bring a small light, you can get a small one and put it inside a shoe so as not to take up space.
