Cabin 1438 was port side near the front. It was a good size, plenty of space to hang & store all our clothes. Bathroom was small but adequate. Excellent shower simple to work & worked well. Not a lot of noise from other cruisers. Aircon noisey but took earplugs so not a proble.

Good for disembarking at the ports of call as this was usually from Deck 0

Bad experience by jbolton

Our bed was extremely hard. It felt as if there were boards directly under the sheets. My back was a total wreck by the end of our cruise. The bathroom had a slight sewer smell to it. The washcloth fell over the drain one time and when I picked it up, it reeked of sewage .

The cabins were a good size with good amenities. The one complaint was the couch which felt like they put fake leather over some plywood. In the cabin that did not have the drop down bunk the person sleeping on the "couch" had to put some extra cushioning under him to sleep.

Eventhough the cabins had been recently renovated they are already showing some wear or poor manufacaturing.
-The carpet in the cabin was already coming apart at the door and by the beds.
-The cabinet doors did not close correctly as they were improperly installed. On each door two of the four hinges were not connected to the cabinet.
-The bathroom door knob fell out of the door.
-The door connecting the cabins did not line up correctly and needed a hockey check while turning the lock to get it closed.
-The wiring for the phone system was poorly installed as it came out of the wall twice.
-The toilet system did not work multiple times throughout the week. One case we almost had an overflow as the system would not stop filling the toilet.

Best vacation ever by kennbrandt

Too noisy if they have anything at the Liquid Lounge. Otherwise, it wasn't a bad cabin. It is too far forward for some of the dining venues, but close to the casino, shops, guest service, and disembarking.

Family fun by Hermioneweasley

Handy for waterpark and restaurants. Lots of storage space. Sleeps 4- bed pulls down from ceiling

Our cabin, our choice, was not a good cabin. We were located right above the Alchemy Nightclub and the bass was annoying. But to be fair, they did stop about midnight. In future I'll look a little better to find a cabin more fitted to my preferences.

The shower in the revamped ship is larger and very pleasant. BUT the toilet is situated at an odd angle. I guess you have give something to get something.

Not the Best Ship by sunsnorkle

Port side Aft Balcony
Would recommend forward rather than aft cabins due to diesel fumes and cooking smell from galley.
Was very quiet though!

Good size balcony

Perfect location midship. Everything is 2 floors up or 2 floors down.

Great location on the ship. Not too far from forward and mid elevators. Easy access to Lido deck and public areas.

Our Balcony room was 7289. Great in terms of floor location, 2 floors below the lido and sun deck, 2 floors above the ocean plaza and casino. No noise from either. But our room was located next to the stairway so it was a little noisy at times. The room was fine, my first balcony but it was a good room. The only negative was the people next to us and the TV stations were pretty terrible. Constantly losing signals and the audio was not synced to the video. Not a huge deal because i don't watch TV much while on a cruise.

Room was clean and well kept. Attractive decor. Always plenty of towels and a few amenities in a basket in the bathroom. Robes. Quiet area. You can see inside the bridge from this room.

good overall but a bit noisy(propeller noise?, squeaks, rattles, etc.) due to the location toward the back of the ship. Doors now have louvers which allow you to hear people in the hallways-very irritating.

Cabin 9186; great location next to elevators; not noisy at all; easy to get everywhere from there. Sprinkler head held up by masking tape (!); stained shower surround; very moldy air in there. Great views when in port.  Read entire member review.

Loved the Sunshine! by Glitterini

Small cabin but expected with an interior. Large shower and bathroom. Lovely decor. A lot of storage space; 3 closets and 4 drawers.

Beautiful cabin. Clean, comfortable, and spacious. Very tastefully decorated and well-furnished with super-comfy beds. Loved it! No complaints whatsoever. The thick cotton spa robes were a nice extra.

Across from area containing stairs and near elevators but never any noise from that. Near to door leading to Serenity area so can be noisy at times with door opening and banging closed sometimes. Far from dining area.

Cabin was adequate and as expected. Clean. Great service from Cabin steward. DO NOT recommend location - 9th floor Lido Deck right outside elevator, foyer. Extremely noisy through out the night. Across from crew pantry/ice-maker which was noisy and very smelly. Vacuuming of hallways started at 2:00 am which was not acceptable. Rooms were is desperate need of additional soundproofing.

We had rear corner cabin of the ship, large size and very large wrap around balcony, only problem being if a stormy night you do feel the ships movements more
