Cabin R308
Very good location as it was quick to get to the gym and buffet. Quiet room except for first day as it is next to luggage storage. Never heard elevator even though it is a few steps away. Liked having the balcony and used it more than we thought we would.

No Major Complaints JingleHeimerSchmidt
not refurbished like we thought they would have been--only 2 plugs with none by the bed so cannot use your phone as a clock or alarm if it needs to be charged. Bathrooms very very small. Comfy bed.

Cabin C623
The AC in our Cabin and the entire Deck 10 Caribe Deck starboard side midsection was not working efficiently. This problem existed for the entire duration of our cruise. The toilet leaked for 2 days, causing a puddle issue, and it took two days and two calls to Customer Service before someone showed up to resolve the problem.

Cabin B206
Felt like 1/2 the size of an equivalent balcony room on Carnival. 2-3 feet of wasted/unusable space between the room and the balcony. Just the way they installed the rooms I guess. Less storage than we were used to. Queen size bed vs a king bed on Carnival. 2 small chairs vs a couch on Carnival.

Cabin C101

Deck 10, cabin C101 is almost right under the bridge, all the way forward, starboard side. Balconies on Deck 10 are much larger than the same category (BE) on Deck 9, and ours overlooked the balcony(s)below. Unfortunately no privacy for them. Took pics of some awesome sunsets from the balcony. Cabin was very nice, beds very comfortable. Had to walk, walk, walk to get anywhere from this cabin; seems like most things were at the other end of the ship. Very quiet location, cabins above & cabins below.

Cabin Baja-Forward

The cabin was a bit noisy in rough seas, with a frequent ticking sound coming from who knows where, but we've had similar issues on other ships in similar circumstances and the sound went away with smoother water. Cabin size was comparable to other balconies so we didn't see a + or - there. There WERE plenty of hangers in the closet, however. Something that always makes the room more comfortable. We didn't hear much from the hallway and nothing from adjoining rooms. The mini-fridge was handy and our steward was happy to empty it when we explained we weren't interested in any for-fee sodas or waters.

Cabin B218

Nice cabin with no complaints except for the lack of technology in the tv. Size was fine for 2 people. I study the deck plans carefully before selecting a cabin. I have one deck between me and the pool deck, main showroom, casino, engine room or other noisy places. This may sound crazy but I have decided to only select balconies after that cruise ship lost power a few years ago. With a balcony you can always open a window.

Worst ship ever! Fuddy Duddy

Not ready for occupancy upon arrival. No hand towels , ladder for bunk bed not stored properly and rattled all night. No ice bucket or TV channel guide.

Cabin B231

Our stateroom was on Baja deck, forward, balcony room. The info on the web site accurately reflects what you can expect. Nicely sized for two, functional and consistent with our other trip (they must be standardizing décor to get some savings). We really enjoy the balcony so it’s worth the upcharge for us—not that the view of the port of Houston is really all that interesting per say. Our baggage showed up late afternoon and there is plenty of storage space including in room safe. Housekeeping was superior and unobtrusive; room refreshed in AM and PM including supply of ice, fruit on request and evening sweet.

First time this far forward, did feel a bit of wave action with the bigger waves compared to mid-ship. However this was a great price point so no complaints at all.

Also reasonable location for the theater and other venues since there are only 3 main stair elevator sets.

Cabin A435

A perfect cabin on the 12th level (midship....Aloha Deck) of the ship. No noise whatsoever from the on top or from the bottom. Never a long walk to our room. And ten steps away from the elevator when we left our room. Total privacy on the balcony as opposed to many below us that we could see directly down onto their balcony from our balcony

Cabin R726

Room was okay however this ship is showing it's age so don't expect exceptional. Towards back of ship and you will feel some vibration of the engine. However it is very handy to the back pool (up one set of stairs at the end of the hall) Horizon Court, Adagio, Sabitinis & Skywalkers.

Cabin B703
We had two different cabins on this back to back. The balcony cabin was on Baja deck and was a good private balcony location. For the Baltic cruise, we moved to an inside cabin. This cruise is so port intensive that we didn't expect to use a balcony that much. The Plaza deck location is great for an inside cabin since you are only steps away from the Piazza.

Cabin B243
B243, good sized cabin with standard balcony (small table and two chairs). Plenty of hanging space and shelving. Decent sized safe. Small but adequate shower in decent bathroom. Small mini bar with Ice bucket re-stocked twice daily. Cabin quite far forward but conveniently close to stairs and elevators leading quickly to the theatre, casino and art gallery. Nice and quiet. Two beds made into queen resulted in a really good sized bed.

Cabin L259
Nice cabin but all the way on the top deck (15 Lido). It was far to go to the restaurant, theather, casino, atrium and shops. Had to take elevators everywhere. I would not stay up there again on any ship.
