Baja 604 Mattress dipped on my husband's side. Asked the cabin steward for an egg crate mattress topper and he got it on right away. Quiet room. Close to laundromat. Bring quarters! Washer and dryer both two dollars. Can buy detergent and dryer sheets there. Bring your own dryer sheets. Can see the Statue of Liberty when you pull into NY Harbor at dawn.

A239 - Bed was very uncomfortable - like climbing into a canoe each night. Closet was great. Wonderful supply of coat hangers. Quiet location.

Relaxing Cruise by ekb1969

Enough room for us...quiet.....close to elevator.
We liked that our balcony had a roof over us and nobody can look down on us. Two decks below we had a view of the balconies.

Good cabin, very little hall traffic, but could hear the elevator bell when things were quiet. Air conditioning was fine.  Read entire member review.
Great balcony, but I wish they would have given us four chairs (they would have fit). We asked, they said no. Closet was amazingly large with lots of hangers. Bathroom, while small, was very functional and nice, with a great shower. Would have liked a few hooks to hang wet things, and refrigerator could have been colder. Room was very quiet, we heard no outside noises. Bed was more comfortable than I expected given other's comments  Read entire member review.

Cabin A638 was bigger than I imagined. Lot of closet space, the bathroom was small but the shower water pressure and temp were great. Bed was comfortable, I slept well all week. The balcony while small was fantastic. I could spend hours watching the sea. If I could have changed one thing it would be a room closer to midship but that is nitpicking. I would book this cabin again. Steward was May, she was wonderful.

We loved our cabin, though it creaked a lot. Probably because we were so high up. it as very roomy, lots of closet space. the bathrooms are small, but what can you do about that? LOL. The balcony was great!  Read entire member review.

Ask for a bed topper if you don't have one already. Our bed was so comfortable. Plenty of room for us. We were aft which was perfect. Close to the rear pools and buffets. Not a ton of traffic in front of our door.
Balcony was fantastic!

Standard balcony cabin with limited storage for cruises of 14 days or more; hallway conversations easily heard; rattle and vibration when aft thrusters are used.  Read entire member review.
Typical stateroom with ample closet space. Desk and chair. Narrow storage closet with safe. Fairly aft but never encountered ship vibrations and no one in our group got seasick.  Read entire member review.
Too far back - inconvenient for getting around the ship. Quiet location.  Read entire member review.

Mattress was lumpy. Shower curtain was moldy, had to ask attendant to change it. Bathroom still smelled moldy after this when the door was closed.We kept the door open when not in the cabin. When this was done no odor. Not sure why as no mold was spotted anywhere else. The chairs on the balcony and small table needed to be replaced because they were worn and very stained. A ship can be old but there is no excuse for not keeping up the maintenance.

The balcony was slightly larger as it is angled and we could see all the way to the front. However if you like privacy, this is not the balconey for you as you see everyone looking out and when they turn to look to the back of the ship, they see you.

This was a handicapped room with plenty of room to get around either in a wheelchair or on crutches. The bathroom was perfect -- nothing to have to step over to get into the bathroom or into the shower. Very well designed! Balcony was large and easy to get onto via the ramp. Even though it was directly across from the elevators, it was still quiet. The main complaint was the lack of adequate air conditioning and air flow.  Read entire member review.
Our Perfect Cruise by katisdale
Baja 304 - This is an accessible cabin which was large enough to allow me to store my walker and scooter. There is no step up into the bathroom. The bath has a roll-in shower with a pull down seat. Although directly off the forward elevator lobby we did not hear a single voice. The cabin must be excellently insulated. There are ample grab bars in the bathroom and there is a roll under sink. The access to the balcony is ramped. There was insufficient room to go out on the balcony on the scooter as there would be no turn around. If you must stay in a wheelchair then I would recommend an accessible cabin on Caribe deck as those balconies are larger than the ones on Baja.  Read entire member review.
Anniversary Cruise by Ficcadenti
B338 - Good location, but lousy cabin due to drain pipe noise on the balcony.  Read entire member review.
A standard balcony cabin with no obstructions in view. Close to elevators and stairs. Not too noisy considering the high traffic area. Great location to get to any part of the ship.  Read entire member review.
Generous storage space. Quiet. Poor quality toilet paper and tissues.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was exactly mid-ship, right next to the center elevators, which we never heard. The cabins are efficiently planned, but could use a bit more storage space, particularly above the beds. Beds were comfortable, but pillows were uneven in quality. They could replace the shower curtains with doors.  Read entire member review.
B432 and B434.  Great cabins midship.  Air conditioning works great.  Very roomy though balcony is slightly smaller than those below it.  On the plus side, the balcony is covered and nobody can look down on you.  Don't have the misfortune of being stuck next to a room full of kids like my friends did.  Read entire member review.
Pleasantly Suprised by spudboy62

Cabin was small but big enough for us. The balcony was nice and we got plenty of use out of it.

Fine but a little cramped for 3 adult friends to use. Family would have been ok.

Adequate room for one person. Loved the balcony. Nice location half way between two elevator banks. I would have liked the closet area to be on the other side of the wall, in other words, facing the bed - would have saved lots of steps. I have a dream that someday I will find a hotel room or cabin with lighting on the sides of the mirrors instead of from the ceiling. Takes so much longer to put on make-up in a shadow. The refrigerator is wonderful, but the outer cabinet door traps the heat in the cabinet and makes the refrigerator much less efficient. My brother and sister and their spouses found their identical rooms small for two people and all their stuff. My thermostat did not work on the first day so that my room was uncomfortably hot most of the time. Somehow my steward got the AC working so that the room was comfortable for the rest of the cruise - wonderful man.  Read entire member review.
B622; good location aft convenient for dining.  Private balcony (those on Caribe deck are half exposed and those on Dolphin deck fully exposed to above with no overhang).  Read entire member review.
Very nice. Large balcony. Tiny shower and bath.  Read entire member review.
Cabin older, balcony nice. Mattress too hard. Cabin basically very clean.  Read entire member review.
Obnoxious large family group totally surrounding us...shouting over balconies at 7 AM everyday...changing our "privacy please" doorknob sign to "please makeup room" which allowed our room steward to enter while we were eating breakfast in pj's....these were adults not children! Standing in hallway everynight and blocking the least 15 adults. Perhaps cruise lines should put solo couples in one area and let the large groups stay together.  Read entire member review.
