5053 + 5052
Cabin 5053 was a decent size, and in reasonable condition, but we were disappointed that the window was not as big as that on Balmoral or Braemar. Storage space was good and cases went under the beds, though the bed had to be lifted for to slide one case under it. The beds are in an L shaped configuration and cannot be moved, but we knew this when we booked. This cabin became a problem as we discovered that there was a lot of vibration and irregular judder when the ship was running at high speed, particularly affecting the bed nearest to the corridor. After a couple of days we moved to 5053 which was on the other side of the ship and was better regarding that problem, but not perfect. It was one cabin further forward on the other side of the ship. Cabin 5053 was the same grade and style as our first cabin, but had a bath with a shower over, (so more space to shower), and it had a much bigger bathroom cabinet. The location of this cabin was under the self service restaurant, which opened early in the mornings and it had a tiled floor with heavy metal, garden style chairs, so knew when it was open! We learned to sleep through most of this towards the end of the cruise though. This restaurant was also used for late night snacks, but the part directly above us was not usually used late at night. At least the restaurant noise was not right through the night. Both cabin windows were quite dirty and remained so for the duration of the cruise.

Conveniently located middle of deck 5 Two single beds, extremely comfortable. Good amount of storage space. Shower room was fine - slightly larger shower than in other cabins we have stayed in. Seemed quiet, only one cabin adjoining and the only noise we heard was the occasional closing of a wardrobe door - this was not a problem. We have booked to stay in this cabin again.

Comfy beds, spacious. Small bathroom with plenty of storage space, wasn't glam., but functioned well.

Very disappointing. The cabin was adequate and clean. We had enough storage space and coat hangers. There was a kettle with decent tea and coffee provided. I can't say any more without being negative. I did not like the layout, especially the fact that we could not have a double bed. I did not think it was "superior". The window was smaller than I expected. Everything looked old fashioned, or even old! There was neither fridge, nor ice bucket. The shower room was small, with only basic dispensers for hand soap and shower gel provided. The towels were ok: clean and white, but not big or fluffy.

Outside cabin on Deck 5 behind shops. Very convenient location midship. Decor a bit tired but storage space excellent, better than anticipated.
