Oceanview cabin, U158, is pretty small compared to the oceanview cabin we had on the Triumph and the Valor. There is no mini-fridge and not much counter space. I am not sure if this cabin has been updated but it's clean and well maintained. There is no sofa in this cabin. Seating is a stool that is stored under the desk and a small chair. The Pullman bed is once again in a very inconvenient location. When it's being used, it blocks the path around the bed for the person sleeping next to the window. This would mean my husband would have to climb over me to get off the bed when the Pullman bed is down.
The only other complaint with this cabin is the ridiculously low water flow in the toilet. It took multiple flushes to get something as simple as toilet paper to go down. The cabin is in a great location with easy access to the Lido, Waterworks, Camp Ocean, and the main dining room. Being at the back also meant we could get to the cafe without walking through the casino. The only time we had to venture forward was to go to Guest Services/atrium, the My Time dining room, the theater, or to get off the ship. This cabin was also pretty quiet. The main source of noise was the constant hum of the engine or whatever mechanical system is at the back of the ship. It wasn't loud enough to keep us up but it is definitely noticeable. The cabin door also needed an extra push or tug to make sure it closed properly. Read entire member review >>
This cabin had a queen bed with a small desk and stool, a closet and bathroom. You cannot control the AC's temp in your room, just open or close the vent. The same category room in other cruise ships is much roomier and nicer. The room steward was very nice and made an effort to give us a good experience. Read entire member review >>
Great location, quiet part of the ship, this cabin is located close to the aft elevators. All you have to do to get to Lido deck and breakfast, coffee and the buffet is get on the elevator. You will hear the low hum of the engines below you and that is about all of the noise. I found it quite soothing. Bathroom is adequate. You need to pack travel sizes of bathroom items, due to limited counter space in the bathroom. Also, we have learned to bring clothes that can be stored folded, due to not having a lot of hangers in the closets.
Loved the big picture window that you could also sit in, if you wanted to. Read entire member review >>
Spacious cabin with plenty of storage for our family of 4. The sleeping configuration was a little "cozy" with a king bed, pull down and trundle. But we all fit and slept well! Read entire member review >>
Room was adequate. No hooks on walls to hang things. Did not notice too much ship movement when in the cabin. Beds are lower which eliminates putting suitcase underneath. All 'n all the room is a good value. Read entire member review >>
6D - or E31 - decent size cabin but not for 4 people. Great view. Hallway had a sewage smell. Easy access at embarkation and debarkation. Close enough to main lobby and bar but far enough away you don't get the noise from it. Read entire member review >>
The ocean view cabin E61 was ample sized and we really liked the fact that it was minus the large corner floor cabinet that hindered our cabin E65 aboard her sister ship the Elation we cruised on last year. We also liked the fact that the room had a full three doors of closet space vs. the open on at the doorway we had on the Elation. Only problem the toilet lid rested against the flush button and would unexpentantly go off while being used, Not an enjoyable experience to say the least. Also liked having more shallower drawers then was on the Elation. Window curtains where dark enough but not long enough to block out the light. Would have liked more than just the soap shelf in the shower. Slope in handicaped shower in cabin E57 was not steep enough and water kept wanting to run out into the cabin, had to keep a rolled towel at the door.
Was fairly load due to the location just across from the stewards closet but the stewards tried to be a quite as possible, it was more often the loud unthoughtfull passengers talking with the stewards that would wake us up. Read entire member review >>
Door is very thin with cabin E39. Watch out if you have noisy neighbors which we did. Otherwise, the cabin is great and has a very nice view. High in the ship and very convenient to the lobby and dining areas. Read entire member review >>
Our 6D cabin on Upper deck was fantastic. I was a little worried because we had a bridal party across the hall, but after the first day, I heard nothing around us. Even on the oldest ship in the fleet, the cabin had plenty of room. Read entire member review >>
