Up to four guests can stay in these Oceanview Staterooms. Includes two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and additional bedding to accommodate two more, as well as a porthole to enjoy the view. These staterooms are mid-ship accommodations, which means you'll have easy access to everything on board.
Two doors from the door used to disembark in port, which makes it noisy on port mornings or when docked overnight. Lots of general ship creaking noises. Dark when sun isn't shining. Read entire member review.
The cabin was OK with one big exception - the air conditioning would shut off around roughly 1am-4am. The room would warm up and make it very difficult to sleep. Also, even on the lowest setting, the room would only get modestly cool the rest of the day. I reported it 2nd day, and they sent maintenance while we were on an excursion. Whatever they did seemed to improve it during the day only modestly (still had to leave it in the lowest setting and would have preferred it a few degrees cooler than that. But it didn't fix the overnight problem.
They left a phone messaging asking for a follow-up as to whether it fixed the problem (the customer service was very good). I went to the front desk and told them the status. They then told me that one entire section of the ship was having the same problem (shutting off in the middle of the night), including his own cabin down in the crew section. They were aware of the problem and hoped to have it fixed soon, but it never did for the duration of our cruise.
It was compounded a bit by the heavy comforters they provide on the beds. Too hot. But I hate sleeping under only a thin sheet. There was no in-between. I ended up using one of the beach towels they provide but that didn't work so well.
But other than that, the cabin was pretty good for a non-balcony. The shower was GREAT - much bigger than the little "coffins" that we often get on other cruise lines. The toilet was a bit tight, with my knees brushing the wall, but no big deal. Sink area was a little tight but good enough.
Flatscreen TV was nice, with a working HDMI port to plug our laptop into to watch our own shows/movies we brought when needed. The channel selection they provide is terrible. Maybe 3 English speaking channels (BBC News, CNBC's international feed, and I think one sports channel with almost full-time soccer).
Beds were firm but generally OK. The room "feels" much larger if you separate the beds. Otherwise the room would be too tiny. Splitting the beds gives you usable space between them, and allows you to actually make a little use of the porthole to look out. It's still a small cabin overall (we're used to larger balcony cabins) but it was comfortable enough with the beds split.
Storage space was good. Lots of drawers and cubby-holes. We slide our suitcases under the beds so that frees up closet space.
Pillows were very thin, but I asked our room attendant for fluffy ones and he left 2 that night that were much better.
This cabin is right next to the service area bulkhead, so we did hear a little noise from that. But that was infrequent. I always sleep with earplugs so it wasn't a problem for me.
If it wasn't for the air conditioning issue, I'd have given the cabin a solid "B". Presumably they'll get that issue fixed before much longer.
Cabin was small but clean and adequate. The cabin steward was excellent - most nights we returned to our cabin to find a dog, elephant or monkey fashioned out of towels on the bed or hanging from the air con vent. Read entire member review.
