The basic cabin (Vista Suite 240 Sq Ft) is identical to the Veranda Suite, except the additional balcony has been replaced with a large picture window. We had one of each. I have no problem with the basic cabin and personally see little benefit from having a veranda, especially as they are of limited size (49 Sq Ft). I benefitted from having a Vista suite on the higher deck five, which although noisy when the bow-thrusters were operated, was very comfortable and the occasional if sometimes long-lasting noise did not bother me.
The bedrooms were very well, if traditionally appointed, with a particularly soft bed and goose feather and down pillows (allergy-free pillows also available). Additionally there was a large sitting area (sufficiently large to have dinner served in the cabin by your butler) and it has a settee that in some instances transfers into an additional bed and a mini-bar that is kept stocked with passenger's preferred drinks. The quality of cabinet work was very good and a lot better than on some ships I have seen recently and a good amount of storage space. There is also a flat screen TV and DVD player, as well as an i-pod base which doubles as an alarm clock. A turn down-service is provided, with the provision of any literature, bed-time chocolates and yet another re-fresh of the towels. There is also a frequently re-stocked bowl of fruit and my cheaper cabin benefitted from having an orchid in it - our more expensive Veranda cabin did not!
There is a large walk-in closet equipped with a safe, umbrella, clothes brush, hair-dryer, etc.
The bathroom is adequate, but small compared to hotel bathrooms and is finished with wood effect flooring, marble, and an annoyingly trendy wash-basin. Good quality towels / bath-robes are continually changed and the soaps / shampoos etc are good quality Bulgari.
