Our cabin was "petite" and there was no where to put out bags once we were unpacked, so they just sat there taking up space. This was the first ship I have been on where the bed ran athwartships (side to side). All other ships, civil and military, I have been on the beds ran fore and aft. I am not sure if it made any difference or not as we did not encounter any considerable seas, I thought it curious though. Our cabin attendant was good, non-intrusive and friendly. He was very responsive to requests for extra towels, washers etc. Cabin fixtures were adequate, although some small repairs needed to be done, and the décor was looking a bit tired. The cabin fridge did not seem to work too well, but talking to other folks, there seemed to be a trend with the fridges. Maybe you need to book a suite to get a good fridge. Generally though, we did not spend many non sleeping hours in the cabin so it did not really matter too much. The towel animals were always nice to come home to. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean and excellent, however, the service was slow. I had to ask about the bathrobe due Diamond Members. I did not get the robe until the 2nd day of the cruise. It should have been in my cabin upon arrival. When I asked the cabin steward, she said she would have the next person take care of this because she was going off duty. The Welcome Back Cholocate Covered Strawberries were received in my cabin 2 days later. Read entire member review >>
Pro's: Nice being at the end of the hall. Our room had a love seat which was nice. The shower worked well; great water pressure. It was great to have a refrigerator.
Con's: room had a "filthy laundry" smell. Beds were very hard. Towels were skimpy and looked well worn. Also, would prefer a few extra towels. Drawers were dirty and needed to be wiped down. The drawer with the hairdryer had a liner but the liner was disgusting looking. No sign saying the water cost money but found out that the water costs money! Read entire member review >>
Great room. One of the newly built rooms due to the revitalization. Clean, smelled new, no noise from above, below or anywhere when we were in the room. We were down the hall from a formal dining room but no noise issues until you went out in the hall and none late at night. No interior rooms across from this room. We were happy to have this lower deck room when we had one day of very high waves. Highly recommended. Read entire member review >>
Lovely large window. Plenty of drawer space. Nice settee to sit on and watch the flats screen TV. Lovely shower with screen, not a curtain that attaches itself to you ! Nice to have tea and coffee making equipment. No coffee though was told you have to ask if you want this ! Read entire member review >>
After being told how small cruise cabins were, we were very surprised. It was perfect. Not too small, but no wasted space. We kept it tidy and everything fit just fine. We could have done without the mini fridge items though. I would have rather had the fridge empty for my own beverages. The bed seemed a bit firm, but once we were in it, we slept like babies. The shower stall was small and it didn't seem very clean. The ship is definitely ready for an overhaul. Same with the toilet. It wasn't the cleanest. I brought Clorox wipes, but it didn't make the 13 years of wear go away. Our cabin attendant Selfino made sure we were comforable at all times. Read entire member review >>
good room if you are sailing on calm seas. Larger than normal and very quiet as it is at the very front of the ship overlooking the helipad. Seems like there was a lot of "booming" sounds in the early morning. Read entire member review >>
