Cabin 6700 is very long and wide with a huge round window overlooking a balcony. We could not access the balcony because there is no door! We think it must be cosmetic to keep the line of the ship consistent from the outside. Instead of two small bedside tables, we had four, and our sofa seemed to be over six feet long. It is located far aft, portside, and was very quiet. We did smell cigarette smoke coming through the vent on quite a few occasions. We reported it, and maintenance came, but we still smelled it from time to time. Other than the smoke smell, I would highly recommend this very large and quiet cabin. Read entire member review >>
We had cabin 9502, a bow facing oceanview. We were very impressed with the size of the room, and it's location. Very quiet, with plenty of storage space. I will be posting pictures of our cabin here on Cruise Critic shortly, so just do a search on IOS cabin 9502 to find them. Read entire member review >>
Comfortable beds, clean linen, sofa bed so comfortable too. Clean, quite airy when sofa bed up. Good view not forward facing as thought. Good shower, closets are small but then we put stuff under bed in cases. No noise at all on deck 8. We were at front of ship and slept really well. No problem, no complaints.

9216 is recommended as much larger than standard and we found it to be suitably quiet at the end of the corridor and away from the stairs and lifts. We also chose it because it is on an upper deck and is not directly beneath public areas such as the cafe where they start to drag chairs about at 5am. Good choice and unobstructed view.

6700 - very spacious with large circular window which looks out onto an area similar to a balcony. Beds face in direction of travel. This cabin has a much bigger feel to it than a regular oceanview. 3 seater sofa. I heard slight noise from what I believe is a crew access area under the cabin in the blanked off area of the deck plan. There was a type of clunking or banging noise intermittently all night, sound of footsteps on metal stairs. It could have easily been obliterated by earplugs and should not put you off this excellent cabin. Long walk along the hallway from stairs and elevators should be taken into account.
