The refurbishment would have been better if the corner sofa had not been added but 2 seats provided .The coffee table was mainly used as a "dumping ground" for papers, bags etc.as access could not be gained to the table to sit at without restricting severely the space between it and the dressing table.Due to it's weight (understandable to prevent it moving in heavy seas) it was easier not to move/use.

Bathroom very small, shelf over toilet a trap as things fell into toilet. Hairdryer needed a nozzle for direction. Shower curtain loved us. Bed very comfortable. Removal of hooks on wall a nuisance as this is where we hung clothes in past to dry. No clothesline in shower as previously used. Read entire member review >>
How disappointing to pay extra and book an ocean view cabin and have a totally orange lifeboat to look at for 7 days. Our first cruise we had an internal cabin and decided to upgrade on our second cruise to an ocean view, very misleading charging extra when it was smaller than our internal cabin and had absolutely no view at all - even if you stood on tip toe all you could see was an orange lifeboat!

This room was a blessing for the rough seas in the Caribbean. It is low in the ship and is midship. A number of passengers were laid up in their cabins for TWO DAYS as we crossed between Miami and Curacao, but most of them were on higher decks. One drawback to the room is that a tender is launched right over the top of the room and you can actually wave to the boat pilot as he and the tender are lowered past your window.

The outside cabin is located on the starboard (right) side with a port hole for a window.The cabin size was as expected - small but functional. However, I don’t remember the bathrooms being that small like on other ships’ cabins. The shower stall was at most 30 x 30 inches (2.5 feet x 2.5 feet) – very tight and I’m not a big person! It would be very difficult to have two people standing in the bathroom.There were no electrical outlets in the bathroom. If you wanted to dry your hair or shave you had to do that in the “living room”.There is free bottled water in the room. Make sure you don’t take the premium bottled water or you will be charged. There is also a bar fridge stocked with liquor. This is also not free! Another plus was the bathrobes.In my opinion, the cabin’s location was ideal as it was quiet and close to the deck 4 staircase and the elevator. In addition, the cabin was located near the middle of the ship and on the last deck; ideal location in the event of rough seas as there would be less rocking motion. There are 2 wheelchair accessible cabins next to our cabin; close to the elevator.The port side of deck 3 is the crew quarters. Read entire member review >>
Room 3021 small circular window. Very small. Tiny closet. We changed to room 4012 large square window larger closet much better and very adequate. No problem with noise in either cabin. Read entire member review >>
Handy location for guest services, and lifts. Quiet, no vibration, and little movement when the ship rocked or rolled.
Window was unobstructed. Bed was large and comfortable. Good hanging space in wardrobe, but drawers were limited size (for shirts). Read entire member review >>
