Our cabin was wonderful and it was all due to having a balcony. If we had an inside cabin or oceanview, our entire experience would have been completely different. You can sit outside on the balcony with a blanket (provided by the cruise in the pool area) and coffee and just take in the scenery. My hubby and I would spend hours on the balcony with our binoculars (highly recommend buying a nice pair of binoculars!). The binoculars allow you to confirm what you are seeing in the trees and water. We were in Concierge Class so we had fancy snacks delivered to our room each afternoon (they are just okay) and had turndown service. Our room attendant was a little on the creepy side, but that can happen anywhere. The bed was firm but comfortable - the tv is not the greatest but rarely do you watch it, you want to look outside any chance you get. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was a perfect size and location for my husband and I. It was clean when we needed it to be, but we were never bothered or pestered (our stateroom attendant was like a cleaning ninja). We found that it was quiet in terms of not being close to everything (2 floors down from the main buffet and far from the casino and main entertaining areas and anchor at the front of the ship. We would book in this same location on this ship in a heart beat! Read entire member review >>
We had such a lovely cabin with a bottle of champagne waiting for us in a bucket of ice. There was fresh fruit everyday....apples, oranges and pears. Canapés were delivered late in the afternoon. A piece of chocolate candy was on our pillow every evening and sometimes we got a towel in the shape of a bunny. Read entire member review >>
We were in this stateroom because the aft cc staterooms on the M-class ships have a huge balcony. We have been in this same stateroom on two other M-class ships. So this is a stateroom we like very much. It's good size and service was very good. Read entire member review >>
A CC1 rear facing AFT with extended covered balcony. Room had some minor broken hooks and trim wear/peeling. Probably not updated in the Solticizing. Mini Bar frig was broken and had to be replaced. Room air was not working and had to be fixed. Both were taken care of within 1 hour of being reported. Air stopped working again last night of cruise but felt it was probably ship wide that the temperature was higher. When leaving port and heading out to sea, engines were running near full speed, so it seemed with the churning of the ocean, and their was a constant thump which was initially thought to be the bass of sail away band 3 decks up but it continued until our next port of call 2 days later. There is very little foot traffic in this area. Announcements are hard to make out unless door to hallway is opened. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful location with huge balcony. Right below the buffet deck so you hear some noise when they set up for the morning, but nothing so loud that we were disturbed. Would book this room again. Read entire member review >>
9162 - A C1 Concierge Class cabin on the aft of the ship. It's a quiet location with minimal traffic in the hallway, but not too far from the elevator; noise from moving furniture or the band on the deck above (restaurant/bar) may be a minor problem at times. The other side of that coin is that you have quick access to the buffet restaurant one flight up. The steward for this cabin is also the butler for the corner suites so it's a high standard of service. Very large verandah, quite private, with a view of where you've been; completely protected from the wind, with plenty of shaded and sunny space. We found the closet and bathroom adequate, though small. Read entire member review >>
We loved our stateroom. Great mid-ship location. Close enough to both elevators without hearing them at all. It was across from the crew prep kitchen but we never heard them coming and going (and I'm the type who asks NEVER to be near the hotel elevator or ice machine. We loved our balcony and used it for breakfast and evening cocktails.
Storage in the room is amazingly efficient. We had four suitcases between us as well as carry-on items and everything stowed perfectly in the closets drawers, desk/vanity and bathroom with room to spare. We are in the process of buying a trailer and if we could find one with as much storage as this room we would love it!
The bed is a little uncomfortable and by the end of the cruise we were both had sore necks. Supposedly part of our Concierge class was a pillow choice but it was never offered to us and we didn't ask so...
Loved having the robes provided. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was 8045. The room was quite good. The balcony was over-sized with an extra triangular piece which increased the usable space by 58% (I used a tape measure). The view was partially obstructed looking towards the stern due to window cleaning equipment. Read entire member review >>
Overall impression very nice. The cabin while smaller than mini-suites on HAL and Princess, was quite luxurious. The bathroom was compact and not luxurious at all, but the shower was very large. The huge rear verandah needs some heavy cleaning with a power washer. Also the verandah does not get much of a breeze even when underway. Definitely would be better in a temperate climate.

Balconies on the 7th floor aft are wonderful. About 10 x 20 in size, with heavy canvas over most of the area so you can sit out even if drizzling. These are Concierge 1 cabins, well worth the price. We were in room 7203. We did have balcony envy looking down and seeing the balconies for the suites on the 6th floor!! Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was great. We were next to our friends and their parents, they had adjoining cabins, which made it easier to throw small parties during special times. While we sailed up to Hubbard Glacier, and through the inside passage we all gathered in our friends room. The balcony was great, and I always encourage people to get as much cabin space as they can afford.
You wouldn't think it would be that important, but it is nice to have a balcony in Alaska. Read entire member review >>
