These cabins are tiny, with two bunks that lower from the ceiling. A normal cruise company would return them to the ceiling when cleaning the room and then lower them again at turn down so you could move about the cramped cabin easier, but not RC. They left them down the whole cruise and just tossed the ladders on the upper bunks during the day. The bathroom is very small, and the shower had insanely high water pressure - so high the sprayer would fly out of its holder like a firehose without a fireman. The so-called shampoo/conditioner combo is just cheap shampoo, so bring your own conditioner. They only give you bar soap instead of the liquid soap you get on other lines. The toilet broke twice as well, so that was fun. Read entire member review >>
Large Oceanview Room on Deck 2 for handicapped individuals. Location was quiet, though near elevator and stairs. Starboard gangway is directly below window. The ship's rocking is very minimal, compared to other locations on the ship. Some very slight vibration can be felt when the ship is cruising at full speed. Read entire member review >>
Room 8200: a great size for a family of 5 or 6. In the Master Bedroom there is a huge bed, probably a king size, the down side it only has a curtain to block it off, not really an issue as we never closed the curtain anyways as we have kids. The other room, the kids room, had a bunk bed and had a door on the room. The bathroom/toilet was small and only one person could use it at a time, it's the same in the majority of cabins. Lounge room was a good size and consisted of a double pull out sofa, two single sofa seats and heaps of storage in all rooms. There are 2 good LCD TV's in both the lounge and master bedroom and an in-room safe as well. This room has three good size very large port holes looking at the same view the captain would see from the bridge and they make the room light and airy. The view from this stateroom is spectacular. Being at the front of the ship, this stateroom is amazingly quiet, there is no noise whatsoever, in fact it was that quiet we had to remove the coat hangers from the wardrobes as they were clanging in the quietness as we travelled across the waves.

Family Ocean view Stateroom 9200. Forward under the bridge. You must close your windows when it gets dark or the captain will call down to your room as it interferes with the bridge. No problem for us. The forward room does tend to pitch a lot and we like the feeling of being rocked to sleep at night so this is perfect for us. Plenty of room and closet space. A wonderful cabin and highly recommended unless you don't like forward rooms or don't like walking all the way across the ship down to the windjammer and dining several times a day. We like the walking -- gives us our exercise -- so it was great for us. Read entire member review >>
