We found the location of D2603 (Main Deck) to be very convenient: right around the corner of the middle elevators and one staircase removed from the wrap around deck of Lower Promenade. And since we encountered at least one day and night with rather rough seas at the Bay of Biscay, we were rather glad we were moved to mid ship.The Laundrette was close by, as was a public restroom which came quite in handy a couple of times. Our steward, Ari and his colleague (I forgot his name) were great. Always there with a smile and everything was in a permanent state of neatness. Closet storage was plenty! We only used three of the 6 closets, for 17 days. Clothing hangers were abundant. We brought 2 big suitcases and 1 carry on. And still we had 3 closets left. Both the bedside cabinets had 2 drawers and we never got to use the one little cabinet with two shelves next to the sofa. The two (hard case) suitcases fitted well under the bed, the carry on went into one of the empty closets. Two times during the 17 days we had trouble flushing the toilet. The first time was solved after a couple of hours without us mentioning it to anyone, after which everyone in our section of the ship received a long written reminder of how to use the toilet and especially of how NOT to use it i.e. not throwing in anything not being bodily fluids or toilet paper. The second week it happened it was solved in half a day and during the remainder of the cruise all was at it should be. The thermostat worked perfectly. No issues at all! One thing maybe to add as an afterthought to this cabin, we always left our drapes open, but when docked, be aware everyone on the same level walking outside will see everything going on inside the cabin...  Read entire member review.
2606 : great location, close to laundry (which I used only once to freshen up husbands shirts). Badly working dvd player and tv. A continuous wail during navigation (you get used to it after the first week) Stains on the sofa, we asked for a clean sheet to place over it since it had a grubby appearance.  Read entire member review.
Good position in centre of ship, Quiet ,no negatives  Read entire member review.
2637: closer to the working parts and smells of the ship than the higher, more expensive decks; carpet needs a deep cleaning or a total change -musty smell. Everything in the cabin worked fine and lots of closet and storage space. Would not choose this particular cabin again, but Deck Two overall was fine overall. Check your deck plan and look for cabins away from the blank spots where some of the ship's equipment resides. No unnecessary noise problems - very quiet.  Read entire member review.
