Baltic with Friends by FL Golfer

larger balcony than most in class

 Read entire member review.
Our cabin was excellent and the bathroom, while not overly large, featured two sinks and a bathtub/shower that was very good. We never had to ask for new towels or anything else. I would have preferred a flat panel TV, which I understand will come with the upgrades in June 2011. There was a small amount of rust just below the balcony railing. The bed was very comfortable and the linens first rate. Our stewardess was paged when we phoned for her and in every case but one (when someone else was filling in during her break) our calls were returned within one minute. Room service was great, and always on time. The pressing service did a very good job. We always had ice in the ice bucket, and we appreciated that bottled water and soft drinks were included.  Read entire member review.

We had a B2 cabin on deck 8 with a partly obstructed view (the onboard gangway was stowed directly below our veranda, preventing us from looking directly down onto the promenade deck or seeing anything in the water that might be close to the ship). Not an annoyance for most passengers. The cabin itself was no different in size or furnishings than any veranda cabin on any mass market cruise ship however with upscale touches as as leather upholstery on the loveseat rather than fabric. The sheets were upscale, the mattress definitely was not! Holland America, with its Euro-top mattresses, wins this one hands down! The bathroom does feature two sinks and tub with shower. At prime showering times (mornings and before dinner) the water was lukewarm no matter how high you turned the knob. Nice toiletries and towels, though.
We had the impression that our cabin attendant spent her day trying to keep up with the work load. On at least half of the days, the cabin wasn’t made up until mid-afternoon, which made catching an after lunch nap problematic at best. However, when the job was done it was done well.

Cabin 8070- Great mid-ship location, very quiet. We have also been in 8094 which is right opposite the guest laundry- we like that but some guests might not.

CABIN 8096: great location near the middle of the ship; close to laundry and elevators; nice middle of the ship balcony; a little loud from hallway noise because of its central location  Read entire member review.
Serenity Minarets and Monuments by Boston Traveler 24

Cabin 8110 - selected Deck 8 this year having been in Cabin 9052 last year. $1,000 cost savings for cabin on deck 8. Cabins are small but there is ample room for storage in closet plus drawers in the room and bathroom. Veranda is excellent to have. Room was Port Side and in most ports offered great views of the town/city. Location between the mid and aft elevators was preferred to location last year (mid to forward).

The room is small, which is made clear in the promotional materials, but very nicely laid out and well appointed. (There was, however, a strange art print on the wall across from the foot of our bed -- some sort of amateurish fantasy castle and village scene.) The room was just fine for us. On one day the ship opened up some larger cabins that weren't take so the passengers could have a look. The 8000 (where ours was) and 9000 cabins are all 269 square feet, including veranda. The penthouse with veranda model on 10000 deck, though at 403 square feet including veranda felt little larger. On the 11000 deck there are some 538 foot suites, two rooms divided by a curtain, which give you more of a small hotel room feel, at a cost. We talked to one couple that had taken two of the 269 square foot cabins, which wouldn't be a bad idea if you are willing to pay the price.

I thought it would be too far aft, but I actually loved being able to just go back to the aft deck and sit and use the stairs there to go up to the Lido!  Read entire member review.
Underwhelmed by LUVTOKRUZ

Room was at the front of the ship, just under the Captain's bridge. No complaints at all about anything related to this room. Very quiet and peaceful.
