Better than expected! laurel.finch7@gmail.com
We were pleasantly surprised to discover that our cabin had been upgraded with a new TV, thermostat, and bathroom cosmetics. We had plenty of room, and loved the location. We felt just enough movement to remind us that we were out in the ocean, but too much rocking.

Cabin 1107
DO NOT PICK THIS CABIN! We chose it because we wanted adjoining balcony rooms and it was what was left when we booked. It is loud, right next to the stairs and elevator, and directly below the serenity deck. The cruise was great, but I've always slept well on ships in the past, and this was the worst sleep I've gotten.

Cabin 8336
Since this was my first trip, I felt I needed to be able to see out. We had a nice cabin, and I was very pleased with it. Showers were great, the person that kept our room was wonderful, and the beds were comfortable.

Cabin 6246
We were in 6246 and 6234. Two balcony rooms on the port side forward. This was my first Balcony experience. It was not an updated room. It still had the pink bathroom and CRT TV. The balcony made for a different cruising experience. Whereas in my prior cruises I felt like the room was just a place to sleep, having the balcony made the room a retreat. I spent a good deal of time hanging out on the room's balcony, whereas on past cruises I probably would have been out and about. The room had the dated interior and showed its wear. The faux leather on the couch was worn through in a few spots, the edge of the desk showed signs of being battered by suitcases over the years. The old standard definition CRT TV was very dim and fuzzy. We actually had two rooms booked together, one for my wife and I, and one for our two sons, age 19 and 15. When booking the room class stated the rooms had two twin beds that could be pushed together to make a king. We requested one room be configured as a King, the other with two twins. When we got there both rooms were configured the same, the couch was converted to a twin bed and there was a "king" between the couch and the balcony window. There was a gap of only a few inches between the window and the bed on one side, and the bed abutted the couch on the other. I did not see how the beds could be separated without some serious rearranging of the furniture. I actually found the bed to be quite comfortable and a big improvement over the ones on the Fantasy. The bed and the balcony were the best parts of the room.

Cabin 1111
The cabin was fine, however the balcony was not even close to private and the noise from cleaning at night was unbearable. Had we not taken a cabin right below a public deck, this would have been much, MUCH better. I'm not sure why this cabin is classified as 8F, which is supposed to give you confidence that this is one of the best balcony cabins. I would consider this to be the absolute worse balcony cabin you can get.

Cabin 1111
We had a balcony on the Spa deck, 1111, this is the top balcony deck so there is no overhang above you which I thought was so good. Brought a collapsible cooler with trash bags and Fuad kept it stocked with ice for the whole cruise. As a plus for us, we just walk up one deck to the Serenity deck, an adult only area (although people cant read signs and bring their children) It has lounge chairs, big lounge mattresses and huge oversized covered chairs for two. The cabin was clean but as all over reviews the decor is old, especially the bathroom, the toilet was not dirty just very worn, the paint on the balcony looked like it was done by a kid and there were rust spots. The TV is old as well as the interactive system for your sail and sign card. The bed was nice, i didn't feel it coming apart since they just push the two twin bed together. We weren't in the room that much so the old decor and TV did not bother us plus Fuad was so great it makes up for the older room.

Cabin 6405
Kunkun was our steward and he did an amazing job. Not only was everything always extremely clean when we got back from the beach or dinner, there was always a towel animal waiting for us on the bed. He was very friendly and everything was in place. I miss our balcony room already and we got off the ship 2 days ago!

Our balcony cabin was wonderful. Great location on Deck 10. Clean and comfy. It was kinda tight in there with 5 of us, but not horrible. Our cabin steward Hery was amazing!

Cabin 1062
Party Cruise TheTravelCouple
The cabin was spacious enough for two people. We had a balcony on deck 10. The bathroom was really outdated and there was dirt/mildew between the tile in the shower. The balcony was small and it looks like it's rusting a lot.

Spacious cabin with great storage, great view balcony, easy access to the front public balcony for sail-aways. Near some kind of crew work space with lots of clanging noises in the evening.

Cabin 1114
Our room was noisy in the wee hours of the morning due to deck location. The balcony did not have a roof as we were on spa deck. The rooms have no Fridges. We did not have night stands as the couch was too long but the bathroom seemed larger that most cruise ship bathrooms, but not much. I did love the location though as we could walk right out to watch a movie, join main pool parties and games, use the water slide and if we walked up one small set of stairs, we were at the adult only retreat.

Cabin was normal with good space for storage. TV selection very limited. Good location - left front of ship on deck 10 - very convenient to Lido pool areas. We enjoyed our room. Very comfortable bed. AC adjustment is on the ceiling in the middle of the room.

Cabin 1115
AWESOME!!!!! Berzle986
DAY 1: The day of our cruise we arrived at the ship at 11:30am and was on at 12:30pm. We couldn't go to our cabin till 2:30pm, so we drank, drank some more, had lunch and drank some more. We were on Spa Deck forward cabin 1115. What a great cabin. It was 5 steps from the door to the deck. It was very quiet and private on this deck as there were only 7 cabins on each side. The balcony was small, but what a view from up this high. Also worth noting is that all the cabins on the spa deck have a sliding glass door leading out to the balcony where all the other balcony cabins on the other ships decks had the regular swinging open/close doors. Other than hearing the music out on your balcony it's very quiet inside. Another plus was the adult Serenity Bar area was right above us and you couldn't hear the people up there from our cabin.

Cabin 1111
#1111 - the absolute best one can possibly imagine - three steps to the top of the middeck open area, absolute quiet and serenity, decent service given so few rooms ( i went 3 hr early after I got my key to dump my bag and go off to walk around San Juan and had no problem - room was ready, key worked and no one bothered about me. room only has shower and I kinda like the HAL bathtus esp in frosty Alaska but no big deal bed not great, balcony good for testing the air and drying wet suits and shoes. Btw, on this port a day cruise, I never was able to spend a day in normal clothes ; I was always on some watery excursion where we had to wear our bathing suits and sit in wet suits for a long ride home so the shower "clothes line" was most welcome

Awesome Cruise islandgal12
Cabin 9262 was near the middle of the ship, not far from the Lido restaurant, so was easy to grab breakfast and sit on the balcony to eat it and enjoy the scenery. Had amazing views from the port side balcony.
