The cabin was fine. Nothing special. I don't feel like we got any extra perks because we were in a suite. I don't feel like it was much larger than a regular stateroom. The balcony is very small. The location on the ship was a good one, though. We left the bathroom door open one day and the alarm went off, too much humidity. Also, left the balcony door open one day waiting on room service and the alarm went off then, too, also for the humidity. That was weird, had never had it happen before, but someone came quickly after we called to report it. The kids were in E125. Again, nothing special. Both rooms were clean and tidied as soon as we walked out each time. That's a always a perk. Read entire member review >>
BE AWARE. The even side is right under the weight machine. We had some gym buffs and the noise went on from 6:15 am until crew hours were over at 12:00 am. Not every relaxing at ALL. We paid for the upgrade and wish we had not. Ship was full so they could not move us. Offered us small compensation, but this did not make up for lack of sleep for my husband, daughter and I. They should warn guests about the noise. Especially when we were offered this upgrade and had to decided in a few moments on the phone, not time to research location of Junior Suite. Our cabin Stewardess told us the odd side was more quiet and that the even side was o.k. from V14 back. The cabin was nicely done inside, was clean and comfortable. The balcony was nice and we were not bothered by other people seeing into our balcony. Read entire member review >>
Fabulous! We are balcony snobs, so we had to get a Junior Suite on this ship in order to have a balcony. Although I was not a fan of seeing other cruisers while on our balcony, I liked the barred railing more than the usual glass. I could just kick my feet up on the railing, sit back, and relax. And the balcony was a good size. I believe it used to have mesh dividers (looking at older pictures) but now has the opaque/frosted glass. It looked like the Grand Suites still had the mesh, yuck.This Junior Suite honestly didn’t seem any bigger than a regular balcony room on any other ship, but I went into it expecting exactly what we got. There was no corner life jacket box in this room, like I’ve heard of in other rooms.I didn’t feel like there was as much storage as usual in this room, but we really don’t need all that. That’s more risk of forgetting something on the ship.The bed was comfy as well.My one complaint about the room was the TV. It’s a flat screen TV that was up too high so it made some colors kind of dark. Also, our remote was all sorts of silly. The menu button controlled the volume, mute button went to menu, etc. and I never found out how to, or if we could, check our folio from them TV. There are kiosks around the ship that allow this, however. They also didn’t film and air any of the events onboard, which was unusual. Read entire member review >>
