Aft-Facing Penthouse w/ Large Balcony Cabins 12 Reviews
Up to four guests can stay in these Penthouses, that come with a living area, dining area and large private balcony. Because they are aft-facing Penthouses, the view from your private balcony is truly stunning. Also features a bedroom with queen-size bed and luxury bath with shower. Includes butler and concierge service.

Great room - butler service was very nice for our family. Bed was extremely comfortable, one of the best I've slept on. Bathtub was very nice for the kids, shower was small. Balcony was huge!  Read entire member review.
We stayed in the Hydra Suite, one of the penthouse suites. We LOVED it. At first it felt small, but as the cruise got going it was everything we needed. Comfortable, private and enough space. We had a private deck which we used often. We got two towel animals and our room was cleaned twice per day. We can't imagine staying in a smaller room now (spoiled). Closet space was definately sufficient. Bathroom was roomy enough.

The room was pretty quiet and insulated, although if you looked up from the private deck you could see the public upper decks and anyone hanging out there. A french fry ended up on our deck, but a sea gull ate it.  Read entire member review.
Large, 3 closets, dresser drawers, couch, table, 2 chairs, 2 TV's, DVD player, stereo with Boze speakers, jacuzzi tub, large bathroom, comfortable bed with ocean view. Great balcony with 2 chaise lounges. Quiet location, but close to everything. The best cabin on the ship.  Read entire member review.
Sky offers new bonus by Jimmy Gimbels
Ants in the bathroom. HONEST! Left channel on sound system does not work. Huge balcony but crammed with too much furniture. Great concierge. Not sure why they offer a Butler...he does nothing for you. Room steward top notch. Towels a bit tread bare. Comfortable room service. Bed has a foam-top layer that retains body heat. It feels like you are roasting to death. Bathroom could use a remodel. Shower doors do not close correctly so entire bathroom gets wet. Jetted tub does not work. Free bottle of champagne...very low quality. Nice floral centerpiece. Even with all the lights on..the living room/dinning room is very dimly light. Nice robes and slippers. Small safe barely holds an i-pad. Bring your adapter...90% of room outlets require them. Great view off of back of ship. Very nice decorating.  Read entire member review.
Had a great time by gskimmel
Great views, quiet location, huge balcony  Read entire member review.
Lyra Suite, #9275, perhaps the best cabin on the boat. Rear-facing HUGE balcony with two sliding glass doors (one per bedroom) leading to the balcony. The fact that the balcony faces the rear of the ship means that it is less windy than the front. And deck #9 means that there is one more deck above this suite of cabins, which means it is more quiet than if you were on deck #10, with the very busy cafe above you. We never heard a peep from anyone around us, above or below us, the entire 5 days. Separate bedrooms (2) and big clean, modern bathroom with separate jacuzzi tub. Clean and unworn furnishings, carpets, and outdoor floor. New paint, shiny fixtures, and great espresso machine! This suite spoiled us.  Read entire member review.
Wonderful Cruise by janpa70

We had an aft-penthouse suite and the room was nice. The balcony is my favorite part. Lots of deck space. The bed was very comfortable. I think I slept better on it them mine at home. Loved the jacuzzi tub.

Aft Penthouse suite 9275 - great balcony, Quite since rooms are above and below. Great position since most of the activity onboard is located center and aft on the ship.  Read entire member review.
