After 3 nights we were moved to 1027 as a result of cigarette smoke coming in through the ventilation system. Staff followed up and we were quickly given an alternative room. Read entire member review >>
Patio door didn't lock. We asked for repair but we were told to use the secondary lock, which also didn't work. Problematic in the cold glacier area. Balcony was good and kept clean. Lots more storage than on our Princess cruise. TV had less programming than on our Princess cruise. We like a cool room and some nights couldn't get the a/c on - the thermostats are old and do not have a thermometer. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was well laid out and meticulous. The view from the balcony was both private and incredible
Our bathroom ceiling exhaust vent hissed excessively but the hotel manager fixed it quickly and efficiently
Movies are not free ( unless they are on the normal tv ) we missed the Free Movies that we so enjoyed on Holland America Read entire member review >>
This cabin is in a quiet location with excellent room stewards! There's a lot of closet and storage space. A few days it seemed that a crew member would pour mop water from a public deck that would end up on my deck. Read entire member review >>
Cabin very quiet. sound proofing good.
Tight squeeze due to proliferation of closet space.
Bed old and a bit short. Comfortable.
Balcony with Table and chairs good size and great for breakfast.
Flat screen TV good.
No real space or table for playing games like scrabble.
Desk and electrical outlets quite adequate. (Two outlets)
Bathroom small but average. Nothing special. Terrible sink (Very small) Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9168 was a standard Concierge Class starboard side mid-ship to aft cabin. Ideal for the particular itinerary, which started in Auckland and ended in Sydney. Most ports were approached and the ship was docked against the pier on the Starboard side.
On of the drawers, in the wardrobe chest, kept on sliding in and out, thus banging throughout the night, in rough seas we experienced.
On the verandah, there was a split in the surface of the floor of the verandah. This split caused a bubble that filled up with water, and when stepped on, the water surged up and over the surface and ones feet. It needed to be avoided.
All other aspects of the cabin were satisfactory. The heating/air conditioning was very efficient and effective. The block out curtains were very effective also. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9211. Balcony, near the elevators but no noise at all from them. It is an aft cabin but didn't find this a problem, very smooth sailing. Lots of storage and overall very happy with our cabin. Read entire member review >>
9121 very noisy, under a veranda with people waking back and forth and tables and chairs scraping against steel. Concierge class only worth about 20$ more (the price of the bottle of wine that is provided). Read entire member review >>
Limited drawer space, nice little refrigerator. Good shower size & shower head. Almost exactly mid-ship with cabins above and below, so excellent location. Good sized balcony. On the deck plans it looks close to the elevators, but you don't hear any noise. The one noisy night is the last one because it's across from the door leading to the crew area where they're taking the bags. That door bangs closed a lot the last night. The noise will stop by midnight. Other than that, a very nice room. Read entire member review >>
For our 5 Day Cruise, we had more then enough space to unpack our suite case and gar-met bag. Plenty of room to stow away the unpacked bags. Our shower had plenty of hot water and our bed was very comfortable. My only problem with the bed is that I'm 6' tall and my feet would hang over the end of the bed. The pillows were nice and our balcony was plenty big for the two of us. We had a total of 4 closets, one pull out drawer under the day bed, a desk, plenty of mirror space and electrical outlets for charging our electronics. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the room but it had plenty of the comforts of home! Read entire member review >>
Were on the 9th floor, portside, aft. It gave us a good view and we were in a perfect location between the 11th deck pool/buffet and the 7th deck restaurant/theater. Plenty of clothes storage (3 closets). Ample bathroom, although we never could get cold water in our sink, only lukewarm. Smallish balcony but served its purpose just fine. Decor was very nice and tasteful, not cheesy, loud tropical. Beds were a bit firm, but the bedding and pillows were wonderful. Being aft was good. It meant a bit more walking to find some of the locales like the pool, but we hardly felt any movement in that part of the ship. We were four rooms from the elevator and I worried it would be noisy, but we never heard anyone coming or going in the halls. We did, however, hear the TV next to us on loud almost all the time, day and late into the night. I think the walls could be thicker. Overall though, great rooms. Definitely way nicer than our Norwegian cruise. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin - Not right by the elevators so not too noisy but close enough for a person with special needs. Only complaint was water kept spilling from suite above deck at inopportune times (like when we were eating on our deck). Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage room, average space. Loved 10th floor aft, close to pool, fitness center and spacafe. No noise from public spaces which I was concerned about being that close to fitness center and pool. Only con is that it is one room away from crew space, so sometimes it smelled of smoke since the crew smokes in their rooms. Read entire member review >>
Position of 9072 is fine - a C1 midship. The only downside is that it is an interconnecting cabin. Our neighbours had reasonably loud voices (though very nice people) and we could hear them talking to each other, though not what they were saying. It was not a big problem, though I wouldn't choose an interconnecting cabin, but it was all that was available. Read entire member review >>
