Decor is nice; cabin and bathroom are well-presented. This cabin lacks a fridge.
Porthole was held open by a metal bar, along with the drapes. We were awakened at 5.30-6am due to being unable to close the drapes for the first 3 days (see more in general review).
Lots of vibration from engines when at speed, and noise from what appeared to be pneumatic tools and banging. This room is directly next to a loading bay, and perhaps a workshop.
Avoid this room, unless you get it dirt cheap and could sleep through an earthquake. Read entire member review >>
We selected this cabin for the convenience and proximity to the stairs and elevators. It was on the second deck so we just had to go down one deck to get off at the ports which was a bonus coming and going. When we came back onboard we just dropped our bags at the cabin and headed to "our" spot near the pool! The cabin was as expected. I liked the new décor, especially the curtains! The restroom had plenty of storage. We did not have a mini fridge but our cabin attendant had put one in place due to our diamond status. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than other cruise lines with a hard bed. There was drinks to buy in the room but no fridge. The location was good but we had a loud nightly noise from underneath. The bed was underneath the window so you had to jump on the bed to look out. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was compact with lots of storage space. The bathroom has been recently refurbed and was sparkling new. We did have problems with our hot water for a couple of days but they were working on the pipes in the hallway. While the remainder of the cabin hadn't been refurbed, it was clean and neat. No fridge, mini bar on the desk which we put up top. Our steward was very efficient and kept our ice bucket filled. Cute towel animals everyday. Brought us dressing gowns, an extension cord for my husband's CPAP machine and a cork screw as soon as we requested them. While the size was adequate my husband felt shortchanged by a lack of balcony and we will book balconies from now on. Read entire member review >>
On deck 2, big square window, ample room to move around. Our room had 2 single beds which we asked the steward to make up as a double. There was also a bed settee in the room, a dressing table, upright chair and small coffee table. The shower room was adequate, clean and well maintained. There was a large wardrobe with plenty of hangers, two sets of drawers and mirrored cupboards above the dressing table. All in all a very pleasant room. Read entire member review >>
I definitely recommend cabin I 2564 on Deck 2 close to the centre lifts and stairs for a quiet night's sleep (only 1 adjoining cabin) and no motion is felt at all, just like you're on land.
Our cabin was roomy enough for 2, well appointed, clean, great layout and style, and lovely to see the ocean from the very comfortable queen size bed out of a good size window. I would have put in a bi-fold door between the en-suite and cabin space tho, instead of a full door, as when you open the en-suite door, it blocks the way of anyone who is near or at the wardrobe to go past.
There is no fridge in the cabin, but you do have an ice bucket with lid that is topped up with ice blocks twice a day.
A minibar is provided and costs! - even the water bottles - a 1.2 litre bottle is $4.50 USD. Read entire member review >>
I believe we had the best cabin on the ship 2578 on deck 2, Seaview. The suite people on Deck 8 complain about noise from deck 9 - we had nothing like that, serenely quiet. Of course we didn't have a bathtub, but we could rough it. The cabin attendant, Achilleus, is the best we've ever had and everything was clean, recently refurbished? Closet and drawers adequate. One drawback was the safe, because I had to carry a credit card with me at all times. I prefer a digit coded safe such as in cabin 2576 Read entire member review >>
