Beautiful wooden closets. Plenty of drawer and hanging space. Luggage mat for bed provided. Sofa converted to a queen bed with a privacy heavy curtain (our teenager loved it). Balcony had 2 chairs and a little table. Desk area had good lighting to apply makeup, a great blow-dryer and a little coffeepot. No regular programming on TV. Bathroom: Dispenser with lovely lavender soap at basin. Shampoo and zesty soap inside shower. Good shower pressure. Hotel-type clothesline. Privacy sliding pocket door for toilet (good idea).  Read entire member review.

8022: toilets did not work one day, and neighbors smoked in the morning which was very noticeable in our room if we had the door open. Also, they threw butts over the side of the balcony, which made me upset.

Christmas on the Gem by Vagabondvoyager
Cabin 8046: Very small balcony cabin. Balcony did not have the glass railing like most of the balcony cabins had, causing limited visibility.  Read entire member review.
Gem of a Vacation! by dpscruggs
Not real pleased by county61s

Always do a balcony room. The room was just like the other ships. Only complaint was the balcony opening was smaller thank most of the other balcony's. Hard to explain but ours was oval cut out of the steel and the other rooms were much more square and open. (less blockage of views). Our room was about 7 rooms from the very front of the ship

Cabin in good shape and clean. Good storage, large safe. Balcony good size.
Noisy though. Can hear through the walls. Cabin doors slam loudly.
Temperature comfortable, clean smelling.

Since we had an AFT Balcony cabin with three people in it, it was very difficult to get to if the third bed was out. I like to use the balcony in the morning and was unable to get to it because of the layout of the room. They have this table and chair setup that takes up way to much needed room. I was very unhappy with this. I paid for a balcony that I was unable to get to since the stateroom attendant never closed the third bed and I could not get to the balcony unless I climbed over two other beds.
