our cabin was an upgrade for us, a nice surprise! We were located on the lower promenade deck with just one other cabin next to us. We had the elevators just around the corner, and the door to the deck also around the other corner. We found our cabin to be in an excellent place, the only drawback was the door to the promenade deck was slammed sometimes and we could hear it. the bed was comfortable, the air conditioning didn't seem to cool the cabin much, but it was a little warmer than usual in Alaska. the gangway was just one deck below us, and we never found a line to get off or on the ship. It was easy to access the lido from our cabin, straight up to the lido, and the crows nest. a little difficult to get to the MDR, but easy to get to the office.
