1201...Large cabin ( disabled.) Extra wide doors for scooter or wheelchair. Bed at an angle to the sitting area which had a sofa-bed and 2 upholstered chairs. There is a Telescoping glass table. Fabric a bit used but not tattered. Great block-out drapes.
We had fresh flowers (as needed) along with a fruit bowl which was replenished each night.
Like we needed extra fruit!
If I wanted to sound fussy I would suggest that the wallboards could use replacing. A few corners coming up and a bit of patching. But again, one would have to look for something.
There is a noise problem with the deck above this mid-section 12th floor. People start walking at about 5:30 am. It is still dark out. It sounds like a loud THUMP, THUMP. Didn't bother my husband when he took his hearing aids out. I sleep pretty well so mostly didn't keep me awake BUT would awaken me in the morning. Other passenger on our floor were having a fit. Front desk send around some bottles of wine to guests as an apology. It needs to be chained off until the sun comes up. And REALLY needs more ceiling insulation.
Our balcony was HUGE. it was about 17' long & 6' wide BUT partly jutted out to add a large corner with a lot more space. We had 2 chaise lounges, 2 chairs and a table outside.
There wasn't was much privacy, except for about a 2' overhang, as we have had before. It worked out fine because the floor above wasn't used that much (except at 5:30 AM.)
The ship had supplied portable ramps for each side of door going to the balcony. We didn't need them so tucked them away.
There is a Ping Pong table around the corner from the room. The kids were having a great time with a fair amount of noisy competition.) It was pretty much controlled by late evening.
The closet was large, but needed more good hangers. We asked for extras but got flimsy wire ones. There is also a lot of stacked shelving and drawer space. Weird drawers which need a learning curve to get open.
Hallway way quiet even though conveniently close to the elevator. There was no elevator noise.
We would definitely ask for this room again.
Rumors around that the ship will soon be getting a another update. This would be a good thing. Read entire member review >>
We were in a Sky Suite (1066). The balcony was huge and we spent much time relaxing out there, however, some of the wood floor boards were lifting and the area needed paint. Other than the bathtub and large balcony, I don't know the difference between this and any other balcony room (although it did get us premium boarding on the ship). There was fresh fruit and hors d'oeuvres delivered daily which is a nice touch.
My roommate's mattress sagged in the middle like something you'd find at a hostel. There was only one plug so we took turns charging devices and, although there are 2 phones in the room, one didn't work at all and the one in the washroom only worked when you put it on "speaker". The cabin is just seconds from the Island Cafe one floor up which was advantageous. Leonardo D'Costa was our attendant and he went above and beyond even delivering me fresh ice three times a day for an injured shoulder. Read entire member review >>
The balcony is huge and the room seems small for a suite. The room is not efficiently laid out. There are plenty of drawers and shelves, but the closet is small and a third of the closet space is difficult to access. Flat screen TV and a DVD player, had I known I might have brought a DVD. Whirlpool bath tub. The stateroom attendants (on this ship they worked as a team and were very efficient), butler, and floor manager all provided a high standard of service. Alas, no towel animals.

Century, Sky Suite, 1075.Good location close to stairs to buffet and pool deck. Quiet area. Large veranda (10 ft by 13 ft approximately). Roomy cabin with lots of storage space. Would choose it again without hesitation. Read entire member review >>
