In these stylish 170-square-feet of living space, you'll have a lovely sitting area, amenities galore and a generous view of the ocean thanks to the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. Step out onto the veranda to see the view up close and personal.
The cabin was pretty much the standard for a balcony. We had a love seat, desk and one chair. I had a terrible back ache the first two nights from the soft mattress. They replaced it with a firmer one and that solved the problem. The beds didn't have the pillow top mattresses like some of the other cruise lines and were not as comfortable.
The bathroom seemed larger than usual and looked newly refurbished. Read entire member review >>
We had one of the sweet sixteen cabins and can confirm that our cabin had the extended balcony. Double the size of normal cabin. We were the last cabin with the extended balcony so this gave us extra privacy from the cabin on our right. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was smaller than expected, but we quickly got used to it. We were surprised at how every inch was well utilized, and we really enjoyed the outdoor veranda with the relaxing views of the ocean and passing islands (like Cuba). Our room was cleaned and well supplied twice a day. We had an excellent and helpful attendant. It was an inviting and comfortable room to return to after late nights, or at the end of long days ashore. Read entire member review >>
The cabin with balcony was average, old and needed a makeover. Bathroom had awful tile on floor and shower a curtain, a glass door would have been more up-scale for the price of the room. No kettle for water, coffee, etc. Read entire member review >>
7018 was listed as having "obstructed views". The only obstruction was the white framing "posts" on each side. There was very little of our view obstructed. 7018 was a very quiet cabin - we had no issues with anything at all. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin (6044) was just back of the forward elevators over an entertainment deck. Despite this not any trouble with noise at all and bow spray was minimal. Good access to the theater, solarium and casino. A bit small by most standards, but well organized. The bed was a double instead of queen size but was very comfortable. Bath was very good with good storage and a n adequate size shower. One feature I like was the night light in the bathroom.Balcony was a bit shabby and did not like the translucent dividers.

Great location close to the elevators. No noise at all. The balcony is superb. The room is perfect for 2 but used to get a little crowded when the sofa cum bed used to be rolled out for my son every evening. Other than that very happy with the room. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was clean and well laid out. It was a little smaller than other verandah staterooms we have been in, but the many mirrors gave it a sense of space. The furniture and lighting were well laid out. Read entire member review >>
2C sweet 16 veranda. The room was in great shape for its age. Minor wear but we had no complaints. The room is not large, but has very efficient storage. The balcony was a different story. Dirty, worn out and rusting. The off-white colored chairs were more black than white, so bad that I would not sit in them. Soon after notifying guest relations they did thoroughly scrub them. They were useable after the cleaning but hopefully will be replaced during dry dock. Covering the entire balcony area was white paint drops from really sloppy painting. Others I talked to also had these drops on their balconies. Being it was our first veranda cabin we really did enjoy having it. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, 7078, was very quiet. Small bathroom, but nice size shower. Closet adequate and plenty of drawer and shelf space all around the cabin. Cabin was narrower than any we have booked previously. Saw some other cabins that had rounded sides on the beds, so think they just have not finished the remodeling of this ship. Makes the room seem larger. Read entire member review >>
Across from lifts - very convenient. A little smaller than we have had previously but not very cramped. Was on port side of ship but still had lovely views in most ports.
Cabin steward was brilliant. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a 2C "Sweet 16" cabin 6016 on the Penthouse deck. The balcony was huge, easily double the size of most other balconies. We did feel quite a bit of movement from the ship being so far forward. Read entire member review >>
We had a Veranda cabin which we found very good. A Little bit larger cabin and veranda would have been nice. Some of the furnishings showed signs of 7 or 8 years of use. Elevator location was convenient. Read entire member review >>
