Very small cabin. Although it seemed like a lot of storage space the space were so small you could only put 2 pieces of clothing in the 6 drawers provided. You had to close the door to the left to open the one to the right. The balcony was the worst as the door was beyond hard to open. Once out there the door would then slide open the whole time while at sea very disappointed with it. The worst part of the cabin was the sea pass card this is the first time I have had a problem and you can not keep saying it was the cell phone deactivating the card. I went through 6 key pass cards waiting 20 minutes each time to get a new one along with other people in line. Disappointed with the refilling of supplies in bathroom. On solstice last year the lotions etc were replenished each time used but this time not at all and you can only get this brand from them which is very good. Read entire member review >>
We were in a Deck 11 Aqua Class cabin. The balconies on Deck 11 do not have a roof. The weather on this cruise was not particularly favorable with many rainy days. This made the balcony a useless amenity since it had no cover. There were a couple of sea days with pleasant weather, but without a roof cover, the balcony was way too hot to use. We had friends in a Deck 9 Aqua Class cabin which had the advantage of Deck 10’s huge protective overhang over their balcony. Note-to-self-for future-cruises: never book a balcony room without a roof.
Although we had previously sailed on Millennium, we did not remember the compact (i.e. miniscule) size of the bathrooms. We have been on airplanes with larger bathrooms than the Millennium’s. On a positive note, there was plenty of storage space, the heated mirror was a nice amenity and there was always plenty of hot water in the shower.
The layout of the cabin was very efficient. Lots of storage space and available cubbies once we removed all the misc. advertising materials, posters, company brochures, etc. and stored them for the balance of the cruise under one of the life jackets in the closet. All of our luggage fit nicely under the beds. There was plenty of drawer and closet space for this 2 week cruise. The configuration of the closet rod and the hangers was of dubious design (very small hooks on the hangers that constantly got caught on the square-shaped closet rod.)
The A/C worked, more-or-less efficiently. We did call for an A/C technician at least every third day because of a persistent and apparently endemic A/C system malfunction. (The unit would unexpectedly go into “heat” mode on its own.) On a positive note, the heater worked really well. Unfortunately, we really needed A/C on this warm weather cruise and not heat.

#1138 is an Aqua 1 cabin on the aft of the ship. A normal sized balcony cabin with an amazing view of the aft. This cabin is all about the VIEW - amazing and made this trip so special. Read entire member review >>
Loved having a "true aft" cabin - only one of five on deck 11. The cabin was clean, modern and had a great attendant looking after us. The balcony was large - plenty of room for two reclining chairs, two footstools and a table. Had coffee outside in the morning and ordered cheese plates to enjoy outside each afternoon. Just a quick trip down the back stairs took us to the Sunset Bar on Deck 10 to get drinks to bring up to the balcony. Great place for sail away each day. No smell of smoke from the bar below - did not see anyone smoking all week. Best perk of the cabin is dining in Blu for breakfast and dinner. Read entire member review >>
We were in Aqua Class, Cabin 1117 on deck 11. We very much enjoyed the location of the deck 11 Aqua class cabins. There was absolutely no sewage smell at any time like previous posters have mentioned regarding the deck 9 Aqua class cabins. I would only choose Aqua class again if the price was right being not a whole lot more than a regular balcony. But I did love the larger roomy shower in our cabin being not so narrow. Loved the shower head.
Loved the location of the deck 11 cabins. Great to have the door at the end of the ship where you could go down the steps so you could easily get to the Sunset bar and and watch the gorgeous sunsets off the back of the ship. Cabin was clean and well maintained by our cabin steward, Peter. My husband appreciates ice always kept for his use and Peter kept it full. Convenient also to Blu as it was just straight down below us and the buffet was just one deck below. Read entire member review >>
A note about the balcony cabins on the 9th deck – there is an overhang from Deck 10 that impedes your view of the sky – which is why we ended up at the back of the ship so often. Bathroom was small but great shower, and plenty of space to store things. And we didn’t need to ask for extra hangers, there were plenty. Also the small couch was closest to the balcony door (it was reverse on the last cruise we took), which was a plus.
Small but comfy and plenty of storage options. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nicer than most on this boat, and we have no complaints except that we could not enjoy the balcony until after the room was made up every day because the balcony was covered in soot from the smoke stack. Read entire member review >>
Perfectly adequate for 2 people. Clean, quiet, comfortable and well appointed (apart from the usual useless hair dryer). Nice open balcony was occasionally affected by soot but, for the most part, not an issue. Cabin stewards kept everything 100% at all times. Read entire member review >>
Nicely appointed, though compact; recently refurbished and wonderful service from cabin steward Ruffina. This cabin had a perfect location: near the elevators and stairs, as well as the outdoor exit to the sun deck. Very quiet, with a comfortable bed. Highly recommend! Read entire member review >>
The only problem with the cabin was the noise from about 6am as staff moved the deck furniture around the thallasotherapy pool area on Deck 10. Whilst an Aqua class cabin it felt little different to Concierge class but did come with access to Blu Restaurant which in my view is worth the extra money. Read entire member review >>
Large bathroom with rainhead shower and 4 body jets. 2 shelves attached to the mirror that held a large number of toiletries. Lots of room under the bed for luggage. Two 110 Outlets by the mirror or 1 European 220 outlet located at the mirror desk. The room contains a safe. There is a couch and a coffee table. The deck has 2 reclining chairs, not loungers but comfortable plus a table. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin on deck 11 was in a great place, very easy to get too, however when the sea was rough the cabin was very noise from creaking and metal banging above us. The cabin was a decent size and I particularly loved the bathroom, one of the best I've had in a cabin.There were lots of mirrors in the cabin and a huge floor to ceiling one at the end of the bed but because of the bed you couldn't stand in front of it and therefore there was no full length mirror to look in.There was plenty of hanging space but the drawers were quite small and I could have used more shelf space. I always take too much with me but there was room for it all! Read entire member review >>
