CABIN: E4 PORTHOLE forward.... This was my first time booking a porthole stateroom and I would book another in a heartbeat. For location purposes, I was just 2nd from the front of the ship located right under the name on the outside of the ship. The stateroom itself is same size and shape as a regular ocean view cabin except you are only charged for an inside price. NO FRIDGE, but I knew that. This is your typical stateroom; 2 beds, but no pull down bunk. SAFE, 32" flat screen TV, room light switches at the bed, water and soda to purchase in the room. Two robes hanging in the closet. Conveniently located at the junction where the laundry room was located if you need it. I was not bothered by any traffic in and out at all. COMPLIMENTARY BATHROOM BASKET included his/her Razor, toothpaste, Pantene-RED color enhancer, some upset stomach packets (like TUMS), bar soap and tissues. Shower: Shampoo & Liquid Soap (I brought shampoo w/conditioner, a travel Lysol spray). The room itself appeared to be in NEW condition. Perhaps it was one during the latest dry dock? (One negative: if you need to know is that the crew deck quarters is also located at the front of this ship. So there was one night when there was a late night deck party and the music was a little loud. I say, the crew deserves a good time also so a few hours of base thumping I could handle for the service I received. Read entire member review.

R10 - portholes, offer a very small view and daylight into cabin. Due to the shape of the ship, this cabin is significantly larger than the standard cabin. Also is more prone to movement and noise from waves hitting ship. Read entire member review.
