We stayed in an Ocean View Cabin on Deck 7 right on the front of the ship. This definatley wasnt the best choice of room when the sea was very choppy through the Bay of Biscay! The room was big enough and had everything we needed - lots of storage too! The window nets may as well be removed - they're tatty to say the least. It would be no loss if these were just taken down. The caperts and curtains make the room look tired and old. Nothing drastic needs to be changed but new soft furnishings would make a huge difference. The bathroom (as always) was small but always kept clean. Enough room for our things and a washing line in the shower to dry swimming clothes! Read entire member review >>
Had everything we needed. Decent size (on Thomson we paid a lot to 'upgrade' to get this size of cabin) and was good to have a sofa as well as the bed and chair at dressing table. Bed was comfortable, good wardrobe space and surprisingly powerful shower! Our cabin steward was great. We always ended up chatting for a good few mins in passing and he was lovely as well as thorough. We picked the cabin location as my husband has Crohns so this was near public bathrooms should he need the bathroom when I was, say, in the shower. I worried this might be too close/noisey as these were the facilities for the nightclub, but not once did we hear anything outside our cabin Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was comfy for the two of us. The room attendant, Neville, kept it very clean. The snacks in the fridge came in handy the one night I was needing something to eat but didn't want to leave the room. All our stuff fit. You can put suitcases under the bed and use the cubbies and drawers they give you creatively and everything fits just fine. Shower was typical cruise shower, small. The bed was comfortable, although at times we did feel the mattress toppers that were underneath the sheets, they would separate creating a nook that you would fall into. Otherwise, the room was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Generally quite a quiet location midship on deck 3. No noise from cabins on either side or below us. Only knew we had neighbours because we saw luggage in the hall on the final night. The promenade is above this cabin and on two mornings we heard a bang around 5 am. Not much traffic at this end of the hall as there are no cabins opposite and you can't access cabins at the front of the ship from this hallway. The AC unit makes a noise like wind and rain if it is on the coldest setting. It didn't bother my husband who found it a rather pleasant white noise and my ear plugs completely eliminated it for me.
Our Steward was Wilson who does an excellent job. 10 out of 10!
We found the cabin to have plenty of room and a nice big round window. The bed was comfortable and as big as our king at home. The pillows were very flat and should be replaced.
The main dining room that is open for breakfast and lunch is on this deck and the Royal Promenade is only two decks up. Two decks down to exit and enter the ship on port days.
We would book this cabin again. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was quiet since foot traffic in this area is at a minimum. Close to the theatre and right next to the elevator and stairs. So easy to quickly pop back to the room if need be. Would definitely ask for this room again. Read entire member review >>
. Very disappointed - we were in room 2302 (warning) - which has one of the tiny portholes - our friends (who paid exactly the same as us had a normal window)!. This is an 'interconnecting' room and only had one chair rather than the double settee. Read entire member review >>
Very very little rooms. Not big enough for 4 people... no luxury at all. We also had to report a banging noise when the sea got a little rough. It was an external issue they said, and since found out that several people had to be moved from 2678 as it got so bad. Read entire member review >>
2598: Nice cabin, very quiet, good location but had to move due to several fruit flies that kept reappearing.
2676: Nice cabin, mostly quite with the occasional clunk at night, great location for disembarking and for dining rooms. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice. Bunk beds. Plenty of storage. Close to the lifts. Never heard any corridor noise. Plenty of light from the window, and an interesting perspective on things being so low down. Read entire member review >>
Very comfortable furniture; well designed and laid out toilet/shower room; very good general storage space; very quiet throughout day and night despite being on the same deck as the theatre and night club entrances. Read entire member review >>
