We were on Deck 9, cabin 162. It's a great cabin with no noise from the deck below (casino). It is in the middle of both sets elevators. Though I would have much preferred to be closer to one set of elevators, our cabin was assigned, so we did not have the option to choose. Read entire member review.
The location was great and stewards Marco and assistant Bagus were outstanding. Marco brought a lounger for our verandah (there were just two chairs and a small table initially) and put a top sheet on the bed. The bed had a fitted sheet and duvet….too hot for comfortable sleeping. The room was quiet and we had no smokers on either side of the verandah. The air-conditioning was adequate but could have been better. Storage was plentiful. A state of the art laundry room was down the hall. Laundry packages were available. We had complimentary laundry which was a great help. Our steward would pick it up in the evening and delivered it the next morning. I did use the laundry room to press a few things. The plug for the hairdryer was under the desk and difficult to access. The room had a long sofa, chair, adjustable table, minibar, shelves with additional liquor, water bottles and glassware. There was also a flat screen TV. We brought a power strip as outlets are minimal. The bathroom had two shelves for items and a shelf under the sink. There was also a whirlpool bathtub. We unfortunately experienced major problems with our bathroom and I found the Front Office Staff not very responsive. This was the only flaw in the cruise.
My husband and I had a cabin with a balcony towards the front of the ship on Deck 9. We found the room to be a good size with plenty of storage space. Our daughters had inside cabins across from us and they found these to be quite nice as well - did not at all feed the need for a window or balcony. We did not notice any excessive noise - the temperature of the rooms was fine. We especially liked having the New York Times extract delivered to our room each morning. Our room stewards were great.
