Empress deck outside near the elevators. Mobility issues, we usually stay right near the aft elevaotors unless getting a balcony cabin. Cabin was the usual, good steward Danet. He promptly got anything I needed and kept our cooler well stocked with ice each day. We chose the full cleaning two times a day. Old school, extra pillows and all!
This is the first time we'd seen the "form". A request form you fill out for extra towels, pillows, and other items but mainly a form that tells the stewards if you have a preferred cleaning schedule for your room. Read entire member review >>
We had an ocean view room with a king bed. Beds and pillows were comfortable (unless, like my husband, you like flat pillows.) There was a safe in the room that you could enter your own code to use. There was plenty of closet space with hangers. There is also a few narrow drawers and a few shelves in the closet for your items. There is only 1-110 volt electrical socket. Bring a small adapter if you need more sockets. There is an ice bucket and wine glasses and the steward will get you ice. There are a couple laundry rooms where you can wash or iron clothes. You can not bring an iron on the boat. The bathroom was an ok size. The sink is a pedestal sink and there is just a small shelf above the sink to put things on. The shower had shampoo and shower gel pump dispensers. Our bathroom issue was NO cold water. The water sometimes coming out of the cold was actually burning hot. Never could get an answer as to why this was happening but we weren't the only ones having this issue. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was extremely nice for what it was. It had the usual king bed, but it also had 2 of the upper pullmans that folded down, and a trundle bed since we had 5 guests. Our room steward Maksym was great, and he left us towel animals every day, which was a pleasant surprise. Would recommend getting the ocean view staterooms. Read entire member review >>
Bathroom was smallest I've had on any ship with no counter space ( one small shelf above sink and no glasses) You have to ask your steward for a hair dryer, robe and extra pillows if you want them. Mattresses were smaller than the frame ( or possibly not pushed up against the wall) and you could hurt yourself moving around the bed to the window. Read entire member review >>
We stayed in an ocean view room and really enjoyed it. Plenty of room and closet space for two. Not in the room much any way so we weren't too picky...originally signed up for an interior to save money. Got an upgrade for $20 each. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is poorly organized for 3 people. When the bottom beds are combined into a queen, the pullman bed hangs over a quarter of the bed. If you have back problems, this could be a big issue. There was never a problem with noise. Read entire member review >>
Our room was an ocean view stateroom. It was small with a large window. It was by the stairs and elevators which did get a bit noisy at times. I had what we needed... a tv, bathroom and bed! We went to relax and we weren't expecting a suite! Very happy with the entire cruise! Read entire member review >>
U165 is a standard Ocean View Cabin. Ocean View mean it has a nice large window that lets lots of light in. The room was, although small was quite comfortable.
This room is very near the elevators. I prefer rooms by the elevator. There is not the excess noise one would expect and it is a short walk from the elevator. Read entire member review >>
U120 is in a decent location, with a lot of storage and is pretty quiet except when they are docking. You are right under the door to the gangway so you hear a lot of noise before docking. I can sleep through a freight train though so no problem. Read entire member review >>
