The cabin was nice. Plenty of room and we were even able to use the balcony to enjoy the sun in privacy. The bathroom was roomy and the shower impressive for a cabin this size. I was somewhat disappointed in the mattress. And with rough seas and lots of rocking in the ship for a couple of nights, the room made several noises that could be easily remedied. The door between our can and our neighbors rattled against it's latch, as did the overhead birth. Both could be quieted with rubber insulation fairly easily. Instead we did so with paper stuffed in them. And as always, it took us a night to remember to quiet the hangers in the closet.
The TV took some getting use to using, but we figured it out. The selection of channels was limited, but we don't go on cruises to watch tv. I have bee on cruises that showed the movies that had been shown in the theaters earlier in the cruise though. That would have been nice since the movies were shown when we were eating dinner in the first seating or late at night. Read entire member review >>
Very up to date amenities, large bathroom, and a wonderful shower. There was plenty of storage for two people for a week, and everything was spotless. Daily maintenance was always prompt and the stewards were very quick to respond to any special requests. Balcony is small but adequate, and if you are traveling with adjoining friends you can have the divider folded back to provide access on the balconies. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was elegant, like a 5 star hotel. The bedroom was spacious with a king size bed, lots of storage, a sitting area, a TV, a desk, a refrigerator, and sliding glass doors that opened on to a covered patio with a table and 2 lounge chairs overlooking the sea. The bathroom was also a good size and very comfortable. A staff member was assigned to the cabin and took care of all our needs. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was spacious and mattress was comfortable. We prefer a hard mattress, so this suited us well.
Bathroom was spacious, as was the balcony. We were just around the corner from the bank of elevators but there was never any noise.
Next door neighbours delighted in slamming close their dresser drawers. That was a bit annoying.
We found there to be plenty of storage for the two of us, with drawer space to spare! Read entire member review >>
Excellent location and spacious for a cruise ship. Nice size bath and balcony. Storage could be a bit better but for a week's cruise, it is fine. This room is very well situated near the central glass elevators. Couldn't be more convenient. Read entire member review >>
Needed more drawers but plenty of cabinet space. Bathroom very well laid out. Big couch to fold into bed also an upper. Also has an upper bunk to fold down that our older son,21, slept on very comfortably. Read entire member review >>
We were impressed by the size of the stateroom and of the balcony, much bigger than the ones on other cruise lines. The closet space was fairly big but we lacked space in the drawers (only 3 of them). However we managed to store everything, also using the storage space in the bathroom for our shoes. Cleaning was maybe not as perfect as we expected: our cabin attendant was a very young boy, very friendly but it really showed that was not his ideal job. Read entire member review >>
The rooms seemed narrower (the walls jog) to ... make for more room at the foot of the bed, I guess?? But the bathrooms and shower bigger than average. Nite mode in bathroom has light on all nite, nice touch. TV tech (Apple-powered) was improved, especially for channel browsing. Our room had a stank (stale, old) they couldn't get rid of. Noise from adjacent cabins was much more noticeable on this vessel than others we've been on. Walking, drawer closing- all could be heard easily. Also, walls creaked and cracked a lot, even with mild swell/sway. Bring a white noise machine if you're sensitive, or earplugs though it could be heard through the plugs too. The location to the elevators is great and it's central, good distance from everything. There's a glass door that blocks noise from the centrum which when opened (people walking by) let in a lot of noise. Was not a problem past 10-11pm however. The deck chair is nicer than average. Reclines, but not a lounge chair. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is a standard S Class Veranda, with the bed next to the bathroom. The storage is good, but the two over the bed lockers are awkward to reach. The veranda is a good size and has two reclining chairs and a round table. You are one deck below the bridge and three cabins back from the front, so you can look into the wing of the bridge above and ofcourse they can look in at you, but it is rarely occupied when at sea.

The cabin was fine and the service was great. Balcony was roomy. Layout was good and everything worked fine. Only complaint was the bed was somewhat squeaky, whenever you sat down on it or rolled over. It was distracting the first night or 2, but we got used to it. Read entire member review >>
We had 4 cabins in a row which made it convenient for our group. Location was quiet. Cabin amenities were nice with enough storage (same storage as her sister ships) and a great bathroom design. The cabin is in between the mid and aft elevators making it easy to get around. FYI-The bed is near the bathroom.Although he cabin was well maintained by Syndney and his assistant, we have had more detailed oriented cabin staff on other ships. Read entire member review >>
Super noisy, creeking in ceiling, walls, flushing sounds from above, mechanical sounds coming from the bridge--made it hard to sleep often. Also, room moved up and down as well as side to side because of rocky seas and the location. I actually rolled out of bed onto night stand one night.WARNING re Stateroom #9104 (and #9106). These should not be booked! The seas were so rough the first 2 days (Miami to San Juan) that the ship swayed continually and again after leaving St. Maarten on the way home. This stateroom is in the FRONT (forward) of the ship. Stateroom #9106 is one even further up. Both are unacceptable. It was noisy all night long with creeking in the ceilings and walls as well as noise coming from the bridge which was one over and over our heads. (We did have a great balcony and could see right into the bridge.) The shipped never stopped rocking between Miami and San Juan (and St. Maarten until quieter waters off Bahamas). I fell out of bed rolling onto the night stand and banging my head on the 6th night after leaving St. Maarten. We also had to hold on tight to take a shower during these “rocky” days. (The woman in the room next to us (Stateroom #9106) had to go to the infirmary the first day of the cruise for seasickness and couldn’t get out of bed until landing in San Juan. They took the cruise to celebrate his 50th birthday and had never experienced this before. Many passengers were sick. We cruise often but had always been midship or towards the rear occasionally. We’d never been forward before. I changed from Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey to the Celebrity Reflection a day after Thanksgiving. Hence, I called the Cruise Web (which I’d found online) asking for a quiet cabin around midship and preferably Deck 9 or similarly between passenger floors so quieter. This very forward room is what they selected so I went on faith. I didn’t check and we’ve learned a lesson. Read entire member review >>
Walking on the ship early, we ate lunch then went to our cabin. oOur bathroom was beautiful with a spacious "easy to use shower"'raised sink and so much room to put our stuff in the bathroom and our cabin. The bed was heavenly - pillow top - thick and luxurious. Large swivel TV, stocked bar and so much roim for our clothes - lots of hangers for me! Read entire member review >>
First, the ship is beautiful. Our cabin was on Deck 6, centre of ship. It was a great location except we wish now we had paid a little bit extra and not had a slightly obstructed balcony. The life boats are basically at eye level, and appear in most of the pictures I took from the ship. Not worth the savings in my opinion! Cabins are beautiful and use every bit of space. Very comfortable for a couple. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 9240. Huge room, plenty of space, great bed, fabulous shower in a very spacious bathroom, midship location starboard side so very convenient to elevators and stairs. Nice and quiet and easy hop down to the Hideaway for morning coffee. Read entire member review >>
