7008 this is classed as a balcony suite, I would only class it as a mini suite, we had been informed that on average Fred's cabins were on the small side and we can confirm that appears to be correct. There was a settee and armchair, these were smaller than normal size and very low, it might be that these were purchased this size to make the cabin look bigger?
The bathroom was very small, the only bathroom on a ship or boat that I can remember which was smaller than this one was thirty plus years ago on a Russian river cruiser. When having a shower the water temperature goes up and down, presumably because other passengers on the same water circuit are using theirs?
The cabin was supplied with tea and coffee making facilities, unfortunately the kettle was fitted with an English type three pin plug but all the sockets were of the continental type. So we asked our stewardess how to plug the kettle in, and were informed that we had to go to reception and ask for an adaptor as she was not allowed to do that. So we went to reception and asked for an adaptor, the receptionist immediately gave a note to another member of staff and informed us that an adaptor would be delivered to our cabin straight away. About a hour and half later we returned to our cabin and guess what, no adaptor, so we telephoned reception and a few minutes later an adaptor actually arrived.
The only plus points about this cabin is that it is located in a quiet position towards one end of a corridor and the balcony is a useful shape, fairly deep back to front.
The Stewardess wanted to come early and do the turndown service before we went to diner each night as we were on the late sitting at 8.30, we said no as we both like to have a shower and change our clothes before diner. On all other ships, we have always left the makeup room card on the door when going to dinner and any turndown service happened whist we were out. Read entire member review >>
Actually a DC deluxe balcony cabin on Marquee deck. Location of wardrobes and beds made it difficult for two people to dress at the same time but good room otherwise, and a roomy private balcony. Quiet location. TV interactive menu had to be repaired twice and the fridge struggled to keep things really cold for the first week. Loo roll holder remained out of action throughout the holiday.

Great suite, L shaped so can separate the bedroom from the sitting area. Balcony spacious with loungers and table/chairs. Quiet, only noise was about 6pm when the sunbeds on Deck 8 were being put away Read entire member review >>

The cabin was tired looking, although it was a decent size. nice balcony. Awful sunbeds. Limited wardrobe space. Nice tioletries, you also get a bathrobe and slippers which is useful.. The cabin is ocated right at the end of the ship (next to the owners suite) this meant that we felt the movement of the ship more than midships in rough seas. The air-conditioning was broken on our arrival, a repair was carried out but only to the point that it was on. The thermostat had no effect; blankets had to be used to manage the temperature.
