The cabin space was smaller than a standard balcony room. It didn't have a sofa or coffee table, and there was some open space behind the door that could be used to store a suitcase, walker or other bulky item. The balcony was very long, wrapping around with views of both the port side and the aft. It was about the same depth as other balconies, with the aft portion having more foot space under the angled glass railing. We were provided with 2 chaise lounges and 2 deck chairs with a small side table. The balcony is totally covered under the aft pool area. Read entire member review >>
We had a Premium vista balcony suite. the room was a little small. The bed took up most of the room. you had to walk sideways to get from one side to the other, But the room itself was comfortable and quiet for the most part. Every now and then you do hear others moving balcony chairs and an occasional bump and grind of the ship. Wasn't enough to bother you. You feel a gentle rock and roll of the ship. Also not a problem. When you go out on the balcony, you can smell from time too time the smell of bacon or something like that cooking. Not anything offensive. My only complaint is the tv was too dark to watch during the day, and couple of the channels didn't aire all the time and the movie channel played the same couple of movies all the time. All in all, the room wasn't bad and very relaxing most of the time. Read entire member review >>
Very disappointed with the size of the cabin. I thought the cabin would be bigger since we had both a side balcony and an aft balcony, but the cabin was made smaller because the closet needed for the cabin steward was right around the corner. The aft balcony was way to small to sit and enjoy the view. There were lounge chairs but you couldn't use them and we had two small chairs with a very small table on the side balcony but then again you really couldn't use them either since it was so narrow. Don't waste your money on this cabin. Read entire member review >>
Great balcony on the premium vista cabins. The layout of the cabin, although not any larger, made it possible for one person to sit at the desk and read or put on makeup without being in the way of the other person moving around the cabin. Plenty of space to store things, especially since there is a nice deep shelve by the window at the head of the bed. Windows everywhere made it great for waking up in the morning. Very expensive cabin, but very nice. Read entire member review >>
6470- Aft wrap with 3 closets- great storage- expansive balcony- sofa- chair- smallish bathroom- not made for handicapped cruisers- some noise at night from nightclub below- mostly quiet the rest of time due to location at aft. Far from lido and pool activities. Close to piano bar, night club, Red Frog, hot tubs and taste bar for alternate breakfast. Will be walking a lot and we used room service frequently.

The balcony was a wrap-around and was really large. The cabin was typical for this type of room and was spacious with plenty of storage(3 large closets). This cabin is triangular in shape so the layout is a little different; the only bad point is that the built-in couch and the TV are on the same wall so you couldn't sit on the couch and watch TV. The one bad part to this room was the vibration. When the thrusters are used for maneuvering the whole room vibrates loudly. I assume other rooms do also as the vibration was by far the worst I've seen on the 10 ships I've been on. One other thing of note about this cabin is that it is directly over the Spotlight Lounge and sounds from there (primarily bass) could be heard at night. They were never very loud, nor did they keep us from sleeping, but they could be heard. Read entire member review >>

The cabin in great. You have 2 picture windows and the a window door to your cabin. The balcony is HUGE! The cabin has 3 closets which is very nice for unpacking. Our room steward was great. The balcony originally had 2 chairs and 1 lounger but our steward got us another lounger which it can easily fit. The balcony is the low point of the cabin, it just seems cheap! Overall this is a GREAT room. Read entire member review >>
