Located midship on Deck 8, these 322-square-foot elegant suites with large sliding glass doors and 24-hour butler service will have you feeling like royalty. These suites offer all the amenities you'd expect to find in a world-class hotel -- comfortable seating, an intimate area for private in-room dining, mini-bar, ample closet space and private balcony.
The Penthouse Suite gave us plenty of room and the bathroom was adequate although a separate shower would have been appreciated. The balcony contained a couple of loungers and again was a reasonable size.
The only disappointment was a very disfunctional TV system which was excessively devoted to promoting Oceania and consequently, things like movies never matched the printed schedules and no information about a movie could be accessed once it had started. The DVD library was like going back in time and badly needs updating. Read entire member review.
Our Cabin, a PH3, was 8057, an aft cabin. All the Penthouse cabins are on Deck 8, which is just below the deck with the pool, Terrace Cafe, Waves restaurant, etc. Our cabin was below the Waves restaurant, and sometimes we could hear furniture being dragged around at night when they cleaned. It was not intrusive. Cabins more to the center (PH 1 & 2) would have been under the pool area.
The only drawback to 8057 is that it is right across the hall from the door where the crew emerges with trays, etc. The only time we noticed this disadvantage was the night before disembarkation, when the crew collected bags from outside the rooms and left this door open while they did so. This was noisy. We could hear lots of thumping and some shouting. If we did it again, I'd choose a cabin a little further aft to get away from that.
We had a Penthouse Suite near the Owners Suites. Our suite was large and very nice, we dined in several times and had lots of room. We had guest for drinks several time and there was lots of room. The Butler is a nice touch, the ice bucket was always full and there was fruit in the room, we could have had canapes, but that was too close to dinner time. Read entire member review.
We stayed in a Penthouse Suite. The room was comfortable with plenty of storage for clothes. The bathroom had a tub/shower combination that was a little tight when showering. It was difficult for more than one person at a time to be in the bathroom, but overall it was functional. The linens were first class, the beds very comfortable, and I loved the high-quality down pillows. While this room was adequate in size, for the money it should have been bigger. With the beds pulled apart, they felt small. It was definitely better to leave them together. Read entire member review.
