I was so excited to have what I considered to be the best mini-suite on the Golden. Cabin E729. Aft with an extended balcony. The cabin location was very good. Loved it until........we realized we were surrounded by chain smokers. Some of them were in the interior cabin across from us. The hallway was filled with smoke. The cabin was filled with smoke. Our cabin steward told us he was bringing "5 ashtrays a day" to the interior cabin. When I walked out on our great balcony everyone was smoking around us, on every balcony. Next to us were a Russian couple, they never stopped smoking. At 2AM they were out there smoking. I could not believe my vacation, that I had been looking forward to for so long, was now being destroyed by something that I never even thought about as being a problem. No one has ever brought up this subject. Well I'm bringing it up. We had a water leak in a pipe, it was dripping down the inside of the front door in the room. They had the leak fixed in about 1 hour. The carpet was wet, they brought in a large fan and dried the rug. I was starting to think my great cabin was not so great after all. The leak happen on a the 3rd sea day. I'm glad we were in the cabin when it happened. If we had been in port the whole room could have been flooded. We caught it quick and they fixed it quick, so that was that. We were explaining to Simon, he was the person they told us to speak to regarding the smoking. He was very understanding, but had no better or as good as cabin to move us to. We considered when we arrived at the first port leaving the ship and hopping the islands and flying home. Just could not stand the smell of the smoke. Simon left a message when we were in Hilo that a full suite had become available. He moved us the the Carbie deck cabin C425. It was wonderful. Beautiful suite, just perfect. We were so grateful for that cabin. Now, I hesitate to bring this up and almost did not write a review at all because I don't want to sound extreme or just plain crazy. I guess my hesitation is also because NO one has every discussed this on this site, that I can find. Could it only be me? I don't think so. Well here goes. After being in awe of the beautiful cabin we were moved to, I went into the bathroom. It was so nice. Jetted tub, glass shower, private sink and toilet area, marble floor. Then I noticed a strong smell of pee. I asked the cabin steward to please clean the toilet that it smelled. After he was kind enough to do that, it still smelled. When I took my shower I cleaned it myself, cleaned the floor all around, it still smelled. Never did figure it out. It smelled like pee the whole time. Let me state clearly, I'm not a germ-a-fob, not weird about smells, not a clean freak, don't have super high expectations. It did kind of take away from the beautiful bathroom for sure.  Read entire member review.
C749 is a standard aft suite with a very large balcony. The living area might be slightly smaller due to this larger balcony. Two wonderful sliding doors to the balcony so there is lots of light! The couch is a love seat, not a king-size sofa. Everything was in good condition except this couch that was rock-hard. Bed is great, nice big dressing table, walk-in closet, and beautiful bathroom with separate tub and shower that is separate from the sink and toilet. Very quiet, private hall/entrance.  Read entire member review.
Caribe Deck C751 Aft. This is a great cabin with a great view on the back of the ship. Even though their is a beam it.s really not a big deal. The room was a full suite with a full shower and full bath tub. Its a very quiet location on the ship. No public noise above or below you. A roomy balcony, a large walk in closet and plenty of interior room. You do however, feel some vibration from time to time especially when going in and out of a port, I take this room again anytime!!!  Read entire member review.
Small suite with a most uncomfortable, completely, un-usable, sofa, too uncomfortable to sit on. Small fridge, two single, metal, collapsible, put-me-up beds with thin mattresses and duvets, that were actually surprisingly comfortable. Very good wardrobe and drawer space. Fantastic bathroom/shower room. Large, spacious shower, ideal for disabled passengers. Fantastic balcony, very large, could easily take 2 sunbeds, but they wouldn't allow it!. As it was the last room on the floor the balcony is about twice the size of mid deck cabins. The room and dinner were the only good things about the whole cruise :)  Read entire member review.
Great cabin (suite); large, great double balcony, great views, etc.  Read entire member review.
Suite was very comfortable. Decor for a ship launched in 2001 is VERY outdated! More like the colors and feel of the late 1980's. Again, the bed was wonderful. The suite entrance was a little odd but fine. This suite is at the rear of the ship so fantastic Sunrises while heading toward Hawaii! Deck was very comfortable but the furniture had a little sea salt wear - no big deal.  Read entire member review.
