Stateroom was immediately available with no waiting. The roses I ordered for my wife (beautiful) were in the room when we arrived. Extra clothes hangers provided upon request. The cabins were smallest we have seen. Balcony also very tiny. Counter and storage very tight but manageable. Some of the ladies complained about minimal lighting in the bathroom. The family cabin on deck 5 was more spacious and easily accommodated family of five. All of us on deck nine near our room 9894 (aft) were routinely awaken by banging and clanking from nearby service elevator.
