Oriana P&O, Cabin A128, Outside cabin, bath shower over the bath, wc, the door to the toilet opened inwards and you had to squeeze against the toilet to close the door, perhaps this may not be suitable for elderly passengers or mobility issue passengers, The bath was quite high to get into the shower again may not be suitable for less mobile passengers that cannot get their leg high to get in and out of the bath. Perhaps if you asked there may be the use of a small step to use to get into the bath to use the shower, but this would cause an issue on getting door open and closed. Very good for people with no mobility problems, but again you still have to get inside the room to close the door, but you get used to it after a while.
The spacious wardrobes, they had a section with one rail high (may be a problem for height restricted passengers), you could hang long gowns in and dinner suits.
Then there was 2 rail section, one at top and one at bottom this was fine for skirts, tops, shirts, etc, we also had a rail in another section of the wardrobe where your Lifejackets were stored, The rail was suitable for long items, trousers dresses etc, but the Safe was below and it was annoying when you had to keep moving your clothes to access it.
On the Safe, it is very narrow, so no bulky items or large items would fit, but was ok for passports, wallets, purses, and valuables, but nothing else. The position of the Safe was not suitable for passengers with kneeling or bending issues as it is situated at the bottom of the wardrobe, so perhaps resiting this to a waist or chest level would be best. The safe was operated using a number you create (and remember), and electronic. There was no deposit or key, and no charge for use.
The bed we had converted to a Queen size bed, and it was good and comfortable, they had 2 bedside cabinets which had 4 fairly deep drawers each, which was good for storage. There was also 4 large drawers under neath the TV, and dressing table, there is a small fridge (no mini bar), but good for storing your water.
The large window with a shelf which the bed was positioned in front of, was good for early morning views of the ports you were entering, and the sun streamed in there on the sunny days. The evening too was good sitting in your bed, reading a book and the sea and scenery behind you when you are sailing.
There is not much storage for your suitcases if they are large ones, we opened our suitcases flat and put them under the bed, which was the only way we could get to store these. This worked well, as when you bought any gifts or had dirty laundry you could throw it in there and not have it scattered in the room.!
There was a corner sofa and a small table in the room which was good for sitting having a cuppa and looking out the large window watching the world go by.
Overall this room is great, there is no noise, except the passengers going past that may be loud, but not very often we heard this, The gymnasium is above this cabin and again there was limited noise, this may be due to the age group that was on our cruise, but it was not used that much, cannot there fore comment on peak seasons when this may be used more.
Hope this helps anyone wishing to use this cabin. Cabin Steward kept it very clean daily, and you get an animal made out of towels and a chocolate on your pillow at night...
