Reasonably spacious with a good deal of storage, including some very useful drawers under the bed. Clean. Both 120 and 220V power available at the desk, but note that if you have an appliance you need next to the bed, such as a CPAP machine, you will want to bring an extension cord, or else the cord will be suspended in midair across the room at night to reach the desk. The verandah has ample room to stretch out in the reclining deck chair and foot stool. The divider between our verandah and the next was not locked when we embarked and was flapping in the wind at night. We had the steward lock it after that, but it still rattled a bit when the wind was strong. We wished there was a way to open the verandah door or a vent at night for fresh air, but a sign requests passengers to keep the door closed. The air conditioning was generally too cold and appeared optimized for the hot Mediterranean summer, and we had the thermostat turned up to the hot side just to keep it from being an icebox in September. The room was very quiet at night; we only heard neighbours occasionally in the hallway or adjacent verandah, never directly through the walls. Read entire member review >>
We booked an aft veranda cabin, after reading advice on cruise critic, and it was the best decision. Well away from busy spaces and lifts, we didn't hear a thing. Good sized deck, while not huge was enough for two deck chairs and a small table (supplied).
Views from the back veranda were stunning as we entered and left legendary places like Valencia, Monaco, Venice, Montenegro, and Santarini.
Bed very comfortable; I've never slept so soundly! Read entire member review >>
Loved the additions from the December dry dock: the big, beautiful Samsung flat screen tv on the wall with live news channels and lots of tv and movies to stream. Also, having 4 power outlets instead of the usual one was great.
The view from our veranda was just beautiful and the service from the room stewards was perfect. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is directly opposite the aft elevator lobby, but we were not bothered by noise. It seems really small compared to other Verandah staterooms we have had. The carpet is in terrible shape and there is a bad smell coming from the drain in the bathroom that they could not fix. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin steward, Ari, was excellent. The cabin itself was adequate in size and furnishings, although the armless chair was ridiculously low. The bathroom had a significant mold/mildew issue that no one was able to resolve during the week of our cruise, although it was reported on the second day of a seven day cruise.

Nice size balcony room off the very back of the boat. New mattress is on the hard side and beware of supersonic flushing toilets all around and smokers on the balconies and Lido deck. Cabin stewards excellent on deck seven! Read entire member review >>
Room includes 3 closets which can be shelving or hanging area according to your needs. In-room safe is now larger, but still dark so check all corners before debarking. Elemis shampoo, conditioner and body wash dispensers are mounted in the tub. Bar soap is at the sink plus mini bottles of Elemis Body Lotion. Desk did not have center pull out drawer. Don't know why it's been discontinued. Mirror over desk is glazed so you don't get a glare. Nor do you get a clear view of how you look, go back to the bathroom for that or the closet with a full length mirror. Good directional lights at night stands for reading. Filled mini-fridges still give you space to add your own items. Read entire member review >>
This is a wonderful stateroom! It is located in the aft of the ship where you have a larger-than-average balcony that overlooks the back of the ship and its wake. The room itself is longer and a little wider that the average balcony rooms located on the sides of the ship. In fact, there is enough room between the bed and balcony doors for a full sofa-not just a love seat. This cabin was very clean and looked practically new to us. The cabin is located on the Rotterdam deck, and it proved to be a very quiet room as no other cabin doors are across from it. In fact, there are only like eight doors on the back hallway, and this cabin is located towards the middle for a great view on the balcony. After having this back balcony, I doubt we'll ever want a side cabin again. If you want a deluxe veranda suite, I highly recommend this room. Also, the room stewards are fabulous!

Nice cabin with comfortable twin bed config. Good shower with plenty of hot water. I wish the vanity mirror was clear glass not tinted. The balcony was large enough and the chairs comfortable with the cushions. Read entire member review >>
Old sheets need to be discarded and replaced with clean, fresh sheets. Very smelly and yellowed from use. Bathroom isn't ventilated enough, and smells like dirty mop. However, lots of storage space. Cabin is otherwise spacious. Large balcony. Unlike Celebrity Solstace ships, the door is hinged so that it cannot stay open. You cannot enjoy the outdoors from indoors based on the door construction.

Great cabin with a double-wide balcony due to a crew staircase between this cabin and 4168 which has a double wide balcony too. We did not hear any noise coming from the crew stairway. The only difference between the two cabins is that 4166 has a bathtub/shower combo and 4168 only has a shower.
The cabin is well laid out and even though it is close to the stern we did not notice a lot of vibration or movement. The cabin is conveniently close to the main dining room and a quick elevator ride away from the Lido buffet and the Sea View pool. Read entire member review >>
The cabin is what we expected. It was small entry way. Both of us could not stand side by side in the entry. Lots of closet space, but if a door is open to the closet, no one can get through. We had a couch/bed which wasn't the most comfortable but serviceable. The veranda was very nice with two comfortable chairs. The bathroom was small but had three shelves on the side for storage and had a tub/shower combo. Read entire member review >>
Clearly the smallest room we've ever had at sea, paradoxically with one of the largest verandas. There were stains on carpet and sofa. Too many cushions (cleanliness unknown) for too little space. Mini-fridge was clean, fully stocked, and did not have any unusual smell. Bathroom was 'clean' (as far as clean goes on a cruise ship) but definitely not impeccable and could use some refurbishment/re-grouting. Conditioner dispenser was leaking and cabin steward could not fix it (conditioner would pool at the bottom of bathtub). The whole environment felt much older than something built in 2008. Door leading to the veranda is not of the sliding type and is locked with one of those common household keys and nothing else (passengers with children, beware). All lights in proper order but not too many power outlets. TV remote control was really yucky. We could not find the hair dryer but the steward promptly brought a replacement. We could never hear PA announcements (even the important ones) from inside the cabin. Read entire member review >>
Large cabin, lots of storage space, large veranda, lots of windows, quiet area of ship, not close to Neptune Lounge (if you care about that). A more perfect location would be a little closer to mid-ship on Deck 7 (Rotterdam). Read entire member review >>
Electrical outlets a problem. My hair appliances would not plug into the bathroom outlets, therefore I had to use the ones at the desk by the TV. That mirror was smokey glass and I could not see well. The closets were ample and there was plenty of space under the bed for our suitcases. I asked for more hangers and Farley cheerfully brought me plenty! Our cabin was very quiet. Read entire member review >>
Great for a family of four. Can't sit up in bed due to the low clearance for the bunk bed, but worth havin everyone in the same room. The verandah was great. Closet and shelving could be better, but the bathroom was fine. Read entire member review >>
Tons of closet space and drawers, more than needed, actually, especially since they offer free laundry to suite guests. The only noise I heard was the clanging of hangers in the empty closet, and I could have pulled them out to rid myself of sounds. Mid ship is a good place to avoid noise. Read entire member review >>
We were very pleased with the size. Only small complaint I had with the room was the slight clanking coming from one corner of the room. But it didn't keep us awake for long. THought it might be noisy being only 2 rooms from the elevators, but we turned out really liking that. Loved the location. Read entire member review >>
The locatin of our cabin, midship, was a bad choice. As mentioned earlier, we were directly below the poolside deck where people sat to eat and relax. We heard walking, tables and chairs being moved from early morning to 1 AM. Our steward did a great job. We enjoyed having our breakfast delivered most mornings. Plenty of closet and storage areas, more than we have had on other ships. The safe was easy to use. The bathroom was well designed and ample. Read entire member review >>
