Concierge Class staterooms feature floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, a sitting area with sofa, two beds convertible to queen, vanity, bath with shower and Hansgrohe shower head, television, and a veranda.
Tight but ample veranda space on C3 class. Bathroom was generous. Room had a stocked fridge - for additional cost. Sufficient storage under bed for luggage, and closet space for a week's worth of close. Room steward - Brian - excellent and attentive. Anticipated needs and kept things in great order. Bed was a little hard (2 put together to make a queen). Gap in the middle was noticeable. In room entertainment (TV) has come a long way. Allowed for easy toggle between news, ship, and entertainment sources (movies/TV shows). Available the entire cruise without drops. Read entire member review >>
Very clean, well appointed and presented in a relaxed but smart appearance. Butler was Brian Fernandes who just could not do enough for you. It was amazing to sleep with balcony doors open and listen to the sea passing beneath us Read entire member review >>
More than adequate storage facilities, even for old folk like us who might be a little less agile than others. Comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. Fresh fruit replenished on an as need basis. Daily nibbles varied in menu style. The only criticism would be that the TV could not be swivelled to allow it to be watched, in comfort, from the bed. The Bathroom, and supplied toiletries were of an exceedingly high standard. The towels were changed in some instances twice in the same day! Read entire member review >>
The Cabin was spotless the cabin attendants where always to be seen doing a very good job it was a decent Balcony Class size with a sofa bed I went Concierge Class this time to see what the difference was I really don't think paying the extra is worth it as to me there was no difference from other Balcony Class cruises except may be snacks in the cabin in the afternoon which most of the time was dried bread and a dip of some description maybe some olives so all in all don't bother with Concierge there is no benefit.

Our cabin was fine. Had a flat screen TV, large King Sized bed and balcony. Bathroom was a little tight. Very quiet area. Good access to all parts of the ship and elevators. Read entire member review >>
This was my first Concierge cabin, and whilst the cabin was same size as balcony cabin, I must say I did enjoy the afternoon canapes as well as the deck chairs with footstools. You have to fill in a sheet each day if you want the canapes and indicate what time you want them delivered, but I found they came at about 4.30 pm daily. If we were not in our cabin, the covered dish would be left on the small table, so that was convenient. We enjoyed the canapes with the champagne in our cabins, sharing 1 bottle between the cabins each day, and storing the others in a fridge emptied of minibar items. When I mentioned to our cabin steward on the first day that we were all travelling together, he offered from himself that he would open our balcony dividers, and that was absolutely great for us, to relax on our balconies over a drink in the evenings, or for the men to chat while we ladies got ready for dinner. Plenty of hangers were provided, as well as robes which we never used, and fresh fruit which we hardly touched. I think if price is similar ( as it was on this sailing ) then booking Concierge is worth it, mainly for the perks Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was in a good position at the end of the corridor deck 10 very quite.
Colin our room steward kept our room clean and tidy and if we wanted anything extra it was never too much trouble.
There was plenty of storage space with a large flat screen TV which had on demand programmes with the latest films and TV shows and British news and sport.
The bathroom was excellent with lots of storage and a glass shower door instead of a curtain.
Overall we were very pleased with the cabin except we felt the extra paid for concierge didn't seem worth it, after the first day we didn't bother with the canapés as they weren't anything special and you could get nicer things upstairs in ocean view cafe. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was on deck 10 port side. Unobstructed view straight out but you can see the lifeboats if you are looking down to the water. Smoking is allowed on deck 5 on the port side , so you will smell smoke on the veranda on deck 10 some of the time. Port side veranda cabins on decks 5, 7, and 8 should be avoided if you do not like the smell of smoke. Read entire member review >>
Veru spacious and comfortable. We had 3 rooms side by side a,d had the veranda partitions removed, so we had a large family balcony. Bathrooms were comfortable and not crammed in. Lots of space. Loved the fact that you have sliding glass doors for the shower, instead of a curtain. Drawers are few, but we used the above bed shelf to store our clothes. Brink 4 or 5 collapsible bins and you will be just fine. Closet space was adequate and just right for a family of 3. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9249 is port side, just aft of the midship elevators. It is very quiet. The cabin is a good size. The bed is away from the balcony doors, with a couch between it and the balcony. Enough storage, with the over bed cabinet. The bathroom is very generous in size. Larger than I remember any other stateroom bathroom being on previous ships. Our Steward, Krishna, was the best Steward we have ever encountered. He was very friendly and warm. Every morning he would hear us in the hall and would leave whatever cabin he was working in and great us and asks about how our night was and wish us a good time for the day. The cabin was always spotless. Anything we asked for he took care of immediately. One of the days we asked him to have the A/C checked, as it was warm in the cabin. When we got back from the shore excursion, it was an icebox in there! We asked for an extra towel, and always had an extra one the rest of the week. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very nice. We loved having the balcony. We had 8 rooms next to each other. The staff opened up the partisans on our balconies so that we could have 1 large one to hang out on. It was AWESOME! Read entire member review >>
The rooms and the public spaces are new and feels upmarket. The room was a reasonable and standard size with most ammenities of a 3 to 4 start hotel. Not bad, but not luxury, so don't expect it. Read entire member review >>
We were in stateroom 1001, which is a concierge class all the way forward on deck 10 port side, our balcony was right next to the bridge. We had originally booked an inside room as we usually do, but then a couple weeks before the cruise they cut the prices and we upgraded from inside to concierge class for very little money. The room was efficient, not very big but had everything you need, except that it was lacking sufficient storage space, at 5'6" the storage over the bed was difficult for me to reach. There was plenty of storage in the bathroom. In this room the sofa was near the balcony door. Our cabin steward introduced himself and took good care of us for our time on board. The bed was firm and comfortable. I enjoyed the flowers in the room. Read entire member review >>
