Quiet Location Very Clean Close to Atrium Close to Stairway Ample Closet Space Ample Shower Space  Read entire member review.
Good view from the window and substantial room for a 4 day cruise in the cabin. Cabin was small but comfortable. 2 closet areas for haning things up and several drawers and shelves for other items. Plenty of room to store everyting we took with us. This cabin is on the same level as the main lobby of the Grand Atrium but far enough down the hallway that you didn't hear the activity from the Atrium bar etc. Close enough to the mid-ship Stairs and Elevators to make access to everything very convenient. Cabin was fairly noisy during the evening hours. I think the Elation Dining room is right above this room but I still can't figure out why it sounded like someone was using a sledge hammer on the floor above us. It wasn't this way all the time mainily just in the evening between 4-8. The cabin also isn't very sound proof. We could hear things from above, below and outside in the hall. And just have to mention a little pet peeve. I still can't figure out why the bathroom light is on the outside of the bathroom on most ships. What's with that? If you go into the bathroom and forget to turn it on before entering you are in the dark. During the night when you turn it on you wake up everybody in the cabin because you have to turn it on before you shut the door. Who thinks up things like that?  Read entire member review.

Small cabin, but the room is mid ship and very convenient to the Elation dining room

Overall Good Time! by babykates
I would not particularly recommend stateroom E139. The Empress deck 7 was great and is conveniently close to everything. However, during the middle of the night we heard a lot of loud clanging noises that disrupted our sleep many times. We were not sure what the cause was - perhaps either the laundry room below us or the dining room above us? The water temperature during the shower was extremely inconsistent. The room was tiny with little room to maneuver around the bed (king-size). The walls were not sound-proof. The bed was comfortable! The room needs a clock and more electrical outlets. I liked that the bathroom door could be propped open, and that the stateroom door did not shut automatically. Great, huge ocean-view window!  Read entire member review.
PARADISE was PARADISE ! by oneluvablepest

Small bathroom with no power source. Beds hard.  Read entire member review.
Only one negative comment about where we were as far as the room is concerned....mid ship right under the galley and I must say there was a lot of noise. My DW said she heard banging around 2am-3am most nights and it actually woke her up 2 times as well as several times a day we just heard a loud buzzing noise like.... I have no idea.....some sort of machinery droning I guess is the best way to describe it. I am a heavy sleeper and never heard the stuff at 2am, but did hear the buzzing stuff...again not super loud with the buzzing, but enough to notice it.  Read entire member review.
First timers with toddler by cruise_w_toddler
Adequate space, especially with the queen-size bed pushed all the way to the window. You can sometime feel the slamming of the door from other cabins. Can be noisy during the morning.  Read entire member review.
Some minor noise above cabin, probably dining room set up but not bad. Steward Roy was great  Read entire member review.
Bigger than expected. Lots of storage. Nice size bathroom. Very clean and well stocked. Fresh towels all of the time.  Read entire member review.
A Blast ! by tomcruise007
Cabin is enough for 3 people to stay comfortably. It has a pull bed and one queen size bed. It also has a small flat screen TV, few movie channels. AC and other things worked perfectly. Room service was outstanding.  Read entire member review.
Empress 19--Constant smell of smoke from ventilation system. Beds comfortable, bedding good, plenty of pillows and clean towels. Steward good, friendly. Hallway noise very noticeable, because there's a large gap under door (all cabins I think) Unexceptional but adequate storage areas. Shower nice, no tub. Remember that you will be charged for the bottled water they provide. No mini-frig, no ice. Fancy towel folding every evening.  Read entire member review.
Had an awesome time by jeepchick40

Our cabin was #234 on the Empress deck, which is the first place we went to drop off our luggage. The cabin wasn't quite ready so we just stuffed the bags under the bed and headed to the Lido deck for lunch. Our cabin had a window which was nice to look out of even though we didn't spend much time there at all. There is no shortage of hot water and the water pressure was great. At times we would come in and shower and not even need to turn the hot water on at all. The air conditioning worked great and even had to turn it down a few times. We did hear some engine/propulsion noises, but quickly got use to them. We were at the back of the ship.

I don't expect much room and just need a place to sleep so I am easily satisfied. I had no problems with our room on the Empress deck. The AC was cold the first night which we corrected that morning by turning it down. The shower was a bit tricky initially to set the right temperature. You definitely need to turn the cold on first like it suggests before you turn on the hot. You don't need a lot of hot as it will get hot real quick! The cold water pressure could have been a bit more to offset the hot water too. The wife and I had plenty of room during the 5 night cruise even with the twin beds combined to form one bed. I like a hard bed which I was not disappointed. I do wish I would have brought my own pillow as I am spoiled when it comes to other forms of pillows. I made due because when you are tired it doesn't take much to fall asleep. I was not disappointed in my room as it was clean and kept clean daily. We had plenty of room for our clothes in the supplied closets.

I have a small sports model wheelchair that don't take up to much space at all. and I had a hard time getting in and out of my room, and the Bathroom in my cabin although were suppose to be accessible it was really small so small my wheelchair barely fit into the Bathroom stall. Bottom line this ship is really old and not good for people with disability or that has a wheelchair  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was E72. It is an accessible cabin and was adequate for three people. The location was very convenient, but it was a little noisy at night do to singing at the bar. Earplugs fixed the problem easily.

Pleased with Paradise by traveling is cool
We were surprised how much room we had in our mid-ship,outside, but lower levl cabin. Once we put the twin beds in an L shape.. it opened up the entire cabin for 2 women to get around with ease. The lighting in the bath was great, so it was convenient for 2 people to get ready at the same time, with good vanity lighting and magifying mirror. Plenty of closet space,too. I used the RICK STEVES method of packing and bring my clothes on hangers, so, it takes only a few minutes to unpack and hang. ONLY improvements.....a BLOW DRYER... and a CURTAIN between the closet area and vanity/beds, for privacy, would have been TERIFFIC....!!! Bath came w toothpaste,creams and a few other samples and nice THICK toasty BATHROBES and BEACH towels..! Elevators were right around the corner, so easy access everywhere.  Read entire member review.
Room R187. Let's start with the Noises in the middle of the night that we heard in our cabin. Something kept clanging against the boat and once you woke up in the middle of the night you couldn't go back to sleep unless you were knocked out from drinking, which happened a few nights. Those were the nights I could sleep. We were right across from the employee walkway room. You can hear them go through in and out of the door. I suggest that after midnight they should respect our sleep time and be more quite going in and out at least till 8am in the morning. I thought the space in the room was great for 2 people. The cabin had plenty of space to put your clothes, shoes, luggage, etc... Daman had a nice towel art and chocolates waiting for us.  Read entire member review.
