Sunset veranda cabin on Deck 10. Extremely quite - we heard no noise from neighbors. It is a connecting cabin with connecting door inside cabin, but we never heard anyone next door. The balcony in this cabin is larger than average. No issues with soot. Our cabin steward, Michael, was outstanding. Location is aft (at the very back of the ship) so furthest cabin from elevators but for us no issue. Read entire member review >>
We selected this cabin for location on ship (port side, aft), and not necessarily for the perks it came with. It was a quiet hallway with little traffic. Deck 10 gave us easy access in either direction (up or down) and we often took the stairs for this reason. The bottle of sparkling wine was nice, but I could have done without the nightly canapes - they were not good (and I am being nice). The embarkation luncheon was a nice touch, and this being my first cruise I was happy to get on board early to begin my exploration. Overall, if cabin location is not a concern, I don't believe the additional cost for Concierge class is worth it. For a cruise ship stateroom, there was sufficient storage (IMO).

Great view coming into port. Bathroom was very nice and spacious for a cruise ship. Could have used more coat hangers. Blow dryer in room. Very quiet. The cruise was unbelievably smooth. I've never gotten off a ship before and not had that sensation of "rocking" like you're still on the ship. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin 1663 on Deck 11 Concierge Class seemed a tad bigger than Equinox/Silhouette although that may have been the configuration with the bed nearest to the balcony doors. The balcony was definitely bigger because this cabin is the last cabin in the corridor (port side aft) and the balcony has a bit more corner space and total privacy on one side. Because it's at the end of the corridor you have very view people walking past which means it's quieter. Our adult son & his girlfriend were in 1559 (one cabin in-between). Both cabins were kept spotlessly clean by the attentive concierge staff. If you've not cruised before, these cabins have plenty storage space. Suitcases store under the bed. Double wardrobe. 4 drawers. Over bed storage and generous bathroom storage. Sofa, coffee table, dressing table, european & US sockets, hairdryer, bathrobes and plenty towels. Toiletries too. We had our concierge empty our mini-bar so we could use it as a fridge for bottled water etc...perfect. Read entire member review >>
Nice cabin with lots of storage. Robes, umbrella and binoculars are included. Canapés delivered each evening at the time you request. Fresh fruit in cabin every day. The balcony dividers we had opened so we could enjoy each other's company with out having to go through the rooms. We had 4 rooms in a row so this was a nice enhancement to our trip.

The room is small but adequate, ditto for the balcony, which had 2 chairs with footstools and a small round dining-height table. The closet space is large, but the drawer space is sorely lacking. Only 3 drawers and no shelf space for folded shirts, etc. Way too many hangers, we stashed some under the bed to make room in the closet.Room away from Atrium noise. If you get a room too near the elevator, it will likely be noisy.Room was clean and had no signs of wear. Room stewards did a good and unobtrusive job. Unlike HAL, no ice unless you ask, and no refills unless you ask. No cute towel animals or nightly pillow mints.We got room service each morning for coffee. They called right before delivering, at exactly the time ordered. Nice. Read entire member review >>
A nice cabin, devoid of effort to keep it clean and working properly.The room was dirty. I had to write the word "DIRT" in the dirt to get their attention. The bathroom flooded as they hadn't checked the drain. The A/C wasn't working properly... it took five calls to get them to fix it. Read entire member review >>
Perfect area as we were just slightly behind the aft elevators...which is pretty much the main area of the ship. Most of the venues (other than the Reflection Theatre) are towards the back (aft) of the ship - so this is where you want to be.Room attendant was amazing - just out of site enough to magically take care of our rooms...but close enough that we could easily "bump into him" if we wanted anything...at one point, we called him, and he didn't answer - only to show up at our door 5 minutes later. Not sure that I got value out of the "afternoon canapés" - which is about the only perk I see with this level of room over the veranda room...but we only paid $20 extra - so no big deal and being on a higher floor made for better balcony views.

Room number 2214 is the room that we were in on this trip. The room is located on the top passenger deck in a C1 category and although not huge, is great for two people. This room has a very comfortable King Size bed that offers a great view from the back of the ship as the room is located in the dead center of the back of the ship. There are only two C1 categories on this deck so be sure to book your cruise early if you want this room.
The nice thing about the balcony on this room and all of the other rooms that are on deck 12 at the back all have any overhanging deck from a restaurant above that covers the entire top of the balcony. That way if is is too hot or if it is raining, you can still be sheltered from the elements yet enjoy the balcony. It was great every morning by ordering room service and eating breakfast from a completely unobstructed ocean view that extended for almost 180 deg.
This room can be a little noisy in the morning as you can hear people dragging chairs above. The view completely makes up for this minor inconvenience.
Although there is no bathtub, the Handsgrove shower head makes up for no tub.
Other than hearing some noise occasionally from the restaurant deck above, there are no noises from anyone in any of the other cabins and the ride is very smooth ... even in slightly rough waters. If you cannot get this specific room, any of the rooms on deck 12 would be recommended. The nice thing is that you do not have people looking down upon you. Read entire member review >>
