8028 has a great floor plan and an enormous amount of storage space. The balcony is spacious as well. The bed was very comfortable, I didn't hear any noise from outside our cabin, and even with the hot water issue we were quite happy. I did not want to move out when it was time to go.

Very spacious, seemed roomier than our Grand Suite on Explorer OTS, because the layout is different. Smaller dressing area leaves more space in the room. Balcony has extra shade and privacy due to the bump-out of Deck 9 directly above. Deep balcony, easily accommodates table with 2 chairs and 2 lounge chairs. No noticeable noise from the Windjammer restaurant above. Full electronics suite with mp3 connections and iPad. Some noise from rattling door at night. Read entire member review >>
We were in suites 8040, 8044 ad 8048 and we all thought our suites were wonderful with enough storage space for that ton of luggage we brought with us. We had requested "pack and plays" for two of the suites, they fit nicely and were in great condition. My daughter brought a small folding cot to expand the sleeping areas in their suite. This worked out beautifully and the kids actually argued about who got to sleep on the cot. Our balconies were huge, but the dividers could not be removed, we had hoped to create an outdoor space for the children and that was not possible. We loved the suites and all of the perks that came with them, the robes, nice bathroom soaps, the special seating at shows and the afternoon cheese and dessert trays. But the best perk of all was the concierge's lounge with cocktail's before dinner, the snacks and breakfast foods and that amazing coffee machine. We visited the lounge every single day (sometimes twice) of the cruise. Reyno(our concierge,scheduled our excursions and Cabanas on Labadee. He made it all so easy. Read entire member review >>
Our Grand Suite 8540 had enough closets and drawers even for me! The bathroom was huge and also had plenty of storage. The balcony had two chairs and a table along with two chaise lounges. Very convenient to the Windjammer and Elevators but far away from the Centrium. Located forward. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8548 was terrific. It was a grand suite and well worth it. Full size bathroom with a double-sink and full size tub. More closet space than we needed. We only needed 50% of the closet space. Full sofa, bar, two chairs, and a 32in flat screen. VERY nice and we thoroughly enjoyed the room. Read entire member review >>
Large amount of closet and drawer space. Nice location for going to the Windjammer but a long walk to the center of the ship. Close to the elevators but didn't hear any noise from them. Cabin #8540 Read entire member review >>
You could hear rolling carts from the Windjammer anytime it was open. Crew stairs and elevator are across the hall - it was not an issue except for baggage movement (first day and last night. Left side of balcony (when standing on it) is a metal divider. Read entire member review >>
Grand Suite: We stayed in GS8532. The suite was very nice. I liked the large couch that wrapped around by the bar. The updated bedding is very nice and the pull out sofa was respectably comfortable and large enough for an adult. There was plenty of closet space for 3 people and our empty suitcases fit under the beds.
The bathroom was typical, large with a double sink and tub. It could use a face lift. The panel in front of the tub was falling off and there were some rust stains on it. Also the water in bathroom was slightly brown in color and the hot water never got really hot. Other than the bathroom the room looked relatively well maintained, with no stains on the carpet or furniture.
The balcony was large and the glass panels allowed for great viewing. We were on AOS and the balconies did not have the glass panels so the view was not as good.
The location of the GS on this ship was ok but not perfect. It was near the forward elevator which was nice. The Windjammer was directly above us, which was good and bad. It was convenient to run to the windjammer to get coffee and a quick bite to eat, but be warned that it does get noisy early in the morning. It sounded like they moving large carts around the floors. This goes on for about ½ hour around 5 am.
We received a lovely plate of sweets and fruit upon arrival, we also got treats on formal night and the last night. We also received some special gifts and of course had access to concierge lounge. Read entire member review >>
