Cabin was really nice...deck 3 state room ocean view....perfectly fine for us .....better than the usual round portholes...nice bigger squarer windows...plus were hardly in there....but very nice comfortable and spacious rooms.
And we found deck 3 convenient for access to the guest relations and central stair case, theatres and restaurant access as they were on a floor or two above us and so easy to get to via stairs rather than waiting for lifts. But would say the lifts were very frequent and quick. Read entire member review >>
I prefer not to be specific on our cabin except to say that it was Starboard outside on level three. the Solstice beds are very comfy, and I love the interactive TV with on demand movies and your account on the tv screen. A few larger drawers would be nice but not that big of a deal if you travel light which we do. I love the low level light in the bathroom at night, and the rooms seem to have more acoustical insulation than other lines (Holland & Princess). Read entire member review >>
Located 3rd level, mid-ship, ocean view cabin. VERY QUIET. Did not even hear noise from theme parties in Grand Foyer. Close to gangway on port days (walk down one level to 2), Shore Excursion desk and Guest Services. On same floor as Grand Epernay MDR. Not many cabins on this level and had easy access to less busy elevators. Will definitely book again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin (8102) was all the way in the front of the ship. We enjoyed the oversized space, but the noise of the anchor was annoying and it was a hike to get to our room. The window was at an extreme angle and the "cubby" this created would often get very hot in the day time. A hazard for anyone with small children. Read entire member review >>
Cabins were roomy and clean with nice large beds, but there were only a few tiny drawers forcing us to to find nooks and crannies all over the cabin to store clothing - very inconvenient Read entire member review >>
The cabin on the third deck was very convenient. We were able to use the front elevators which were seldom busy when we wanted to get to the top two decks. All entertainment and food is on decks 3,4 and 5. It was nice to be close to everything and not have to wait for an elevator. The room had plenty of storage, even for four people. The bathroom had enough room to move around and even wash your hair. The designers made appropriate use of the space. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 7362 considered Ocean View "O8". The Cabins claim to be designed by women ... I think the only idea they used was the foot rest in the shower to shave their legs. The cabins are SMALL ... very Small .. again nicely appointed but no drawer space. The shower is larger but there is no hand held shower head and pressure is poor so you don't feel like you got all the soap off of you. The toilet paper holder is impossible to use and we had to take it off the roller ... perhaps Too much info !
The balconies are equally small. We had 3 adjouring cabins in the stern (which is a LONG walk from the nearest
elevator) and the only good news was that you can create a larger balcony which came in handy as when we couldnt get a lounge chair which was often. The Plasma TV had very limited stations but lots of decent free on demand movies.
As to the Poop Smell ... my inlaws cabin were in the Conceirge Class Room 1093 ... and it stunk like Elephant
Poop! There were several areas on the ship that had this smell. Read entire member review >>
