Our cabin smelled of cigarette smoke. Our steward smoked in the hall next to our room. If you needed to call room service or guest services--good luck getting anyone to answer. Read entire member review >>
Cabin is spacious for an interior. I have been in balcony, oceanview, porthole cabins as well on this ship. It was clean and the Steward(s) are always pleasant and courteous. Read entire member review >>
cabin was fine. we put the tv on the channel that looks over the front of the ship and muted it so when the sun came up, it gradually lightened up the room. We also brought a small string of battery powered christmas lights to leave in the bathroom for midnight trips to the toilet Read entire member review >>
Excellent, smaller than the Miracle was, I had a handicap accessible cabin.I read a lot on cruise critic boards ahead of time so i brought these very useful things with me:A fabric hang over closet door shoe holder. (I put socks, knee-highs, brush/comb, deodorant, toothpaste, dental adhesive, pens, pencils, rubber bands, and mini stapler in diff pockets, oh and dont forget your hi lighter to mark your daily to do items on your ships fun fir the day news delivered nightly to your cabbie for next dayI brought mr own travel mug for hot chocolate all dayAnd my insulated cold one for water. Or soda all dayI also bought a three foot long piece of fleece at Walmart, it was navy with pink or white anchors on it, I used it on cooler nights in cabin or sitting in my chair in Lido deck. I gave it to my Cabin Steward, I didn't want to lug it home..had too too many nice souvenirs, tee shirts..jewelry from the bargain sales out in front of fun shops. Like black Friday shopping except all passengers were nice to each other.I also. Brought magnets cause walls are metal, and I hung up notes for myself. And if I needed anything from cabin steward, I would write a note, fold it over and use magnets to post it on a door that he unlocked each morning, I think it held cleaning supplies etc.And finally I decorated my cabin door with a map of Niagara Falls, NY (I live 20 minutes north of there, and took silk colored leaves and put them around the map, because that's what the maple leaves were colored in our yard when I left for the cruiseThis not only helped me locate my door but the neighbors across the hall found their cabin easier.I also pre ordered a collapsable cooler with water bottles which my cabin steward kept filled with ice, so my diet drinks were always cold...loved him!

Nice sized room, with very little noise. Close to the bow of the ship, tucked away in a semi-corner. Good sized bathroom and a much larger shower than expected (a nice change for someone larger - at 6'3", most showers are very hard to navigate). Reasonable closet space. Could use some updating (tv's and bedding). Read entire member review >>
The staterooms were adequate with the bulletproof plastic finishes found throughout the ship. The sheets and towels were rough and cheap, but clean. No thermostat for temperature. Read entire member review >>
This is a handicapped inside cabin. First time we have had one. Great location on Empress deck, quiet location. Enjoyed the extra room for a wheelchair to get directly into the room, and room to easily store it in there. Read entire member review >>
