Disappointed by Bookmarker
Cabin -- we had a midship ocean view on the promenade deck and had several issues with our cabin. The first issue was the bathtub that did not drain -- it was not a lot of fun to take a shower and have the dirty water be over your ankles when you finished. The second issue was the room was hot. Upon arrival in our room I immediately turned the thermostat down to the coldest setting because it was very warm in the room. We never moved the control again and the room stayed very warm to hot for the week. It never got cool -- the hallway outside was cooler than our room. We were offered a fan to help cool the room down but had no place to put it so declined. We spent as little time in our cabin as possible as a result. Getting dressed in the mornings, for formal night or changing clothes after a hot day of touring was not a lot of fun in this cabin due to these issues. Waking up soaked in sweat was not a great vacation experience either. We reported these issues the first morning by phone from the cabin and three more times to the front desk to no avail. It was Thursday before the tub drained and we weren't showering in dirty water. The room temperature never changed to cool.  Read entire member review.
Large cabin with ample closet space. Larger bathroom with shower/tub combination. Sofa included.  Read entire member review.
A deck is a good one to be on for Drake Passage crossing. Lower decks are much more stable, even though we were in the stern. There is some engine noise here but the aft elevators are close by. It's a long ways to the bow!  Read entire member review.

HH302. Nice size room, was listed as totally obstructed ocean view, but saw a little ocean. Room felt larger than on bigger Royal ships. Had tub and shower combo. Small sofa, with table and chair was nice. Plenty of closet space, in room safe. Not as quiet as we had hoped, near front of ship, lower promenade deck, Mornings when ship arrived at port, noises from below, maybe gangway, not sure. Had rough seas one evening, ship pitched quite a bit, but on the other hand, close to elevators, and to restaurants. Bed comfortable, room nicely appointed. Also surprised, but we could watch CNN, FOX, ESPN while on cruise. Nice touch to sort of keep up with the rest of the world. Overall, satisfied.
