First of all, the Grand Suite was very nice and our room steward, Collin, was wonderful. The room was always clean. One time we were playing dominoes with the other couple with whom we traveled and Collin said he would comeback later to clean the room. That was very nice of him. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was huge with more than enough drawers and closet space. It also had full length mirrors. The bed was firm but still comfortable and although I missed my feather pillow I was OK with theirs. The bathroom has a hand held shower, two sinks and a very high tub. That made it hard to get out of and I was careful to use the grab bars getting in and out. We had a sofa , table, and single serve coffee maker. The coffee maker didn't make great coffee, but it uses pods so you can't use your own coffee. The mini-fridge wasn't really cold but would keep wine and water cool enough to drink. We liked the two padded lounges and large balcony. It was a little too windy to sit outside if we were underway, but great if we were in port or not going too fast. We'll get this suite class again.

The grand suite was nice and roomy. Its about the same size as 2 balcony rooms. There's a nice sitting area and a spacious bathroom with a tub. My husband who is 6 feet basically hit his head trying to shower in the tub though because it's elevated off the ground. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fantastic. I covered it in detail in the review and pictures of the cabin are available in the review on the main boards. The link to the review with the pictures is at the end of this review ...

Good location for the entertainment venues, a long way to the dining room!! Very Quiet.
Nice balcony with table and chairs and two loungers. Whole cabin very well maintained and nicely decorated. Tons of closet space and drawers--could do a world cruise and have plenty of storage for all those clothes. Be very careful getting out of the tub/shower as side is very high, close to three feet. Coffee maker, hair dryer. Read entire member review >>
Grande suite with concierge lounge access was excellent. Perks definitely help when justifying the price. Balcony had lounge chairs & regular chairs which was really nice. We had 4 in our cabin so we definitely enjoyed the extra space. Read entire member review >>
Suite located under just aft of whirlpool in Solarium area so moving of deck chairs not heard. But, near to pool so during afternoon when pool games, bands play and bingo is being held, you will hear activity even with your doors closed. Not too close to either elevator so halls are quiet. Kenta was our suite attendant and she was friendly, efficient. The bathroom mirrors need to be replaced as the years of moisture show wear. The shower is very difficult to get into as the tub is high. Storage is plentiful. Three full-length mirrored cabinets and so many drawers, not sure passengers could fill them all. Nice lighted make-up mirror and mirrored doors can be adjusted to see back of head. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom was gorgeous and very spacious! Lots of closet space, bathroom was big with 2 sinks and a great shower w/ tile backsplash. Bed wasn't really that comfortable but I wasn't really expecting it for being on a ship. Balcony was plenty big for my wife and 2 small children. Read entire member review >>
Awesome room with plenty of space. Beautiful views from the double balcony. Dual lounge chairs plus a little breakfast table on the balcony. Suite attendant for this room was great too. Mid ship, felt some movement, but not too bad. Use the forward elevators for less of a crowd. Read entire member review >>
Lovely deep balcony (much deeper than voyager class), good position reasonably close to the lifts, and very close to the Windjammer (2 flight up) and kids clubs (2 flights up). As near midships, good cabin in inclement weather. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was bigger and nicer than most upscale hotel rooms and had a very roomy marble bathroom with bathtub/shower, two sinks and a large 2 large counters plus drawer space. Closet was adequate but there was a significant amount of drawer space thru out the cabin. Very clean and comfortable. Large balcony and very quiet. Our whole corridor was very quiet.

The room itself was great. It is a bit noisy, however, as you get a lot of noise from deck 10 when they are re-arranging the pool chairs in the early morning or very late at night. Read entire member review >>
We were in a Grand Suite #1282. It was a great location...mid-ship. The Mediterranean is very calm but we felt no motion at all in this room. It was also nice to be mid-way between front and back. Easy access to pool area as well as dining rooms etc. The cabin was very well appointed. Hair dryer is kept in drawer in vanity area by bed. Nice bath products and plenty of towels. Beds were comfy. You can put laundry (just for wash/fold service) in a plastic laundry bag given by suite attendant, and can have it laundered for $25 per bag. Nice service but not offered to us...we had to ask as we had known this from previous trips. Read entire member review >>
1268 is a great cabin-lots of room and well maintained. A couple of things are broken here and there which takes away from the luxury but nothing that's going to disrupt your cruise experience Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage, AWESOME balcony, even more awesome stateroom attendant! Big enough for the five of us. Super flat screen tv and surround sound. Bathroom was beautiful and well appointed. Location was steps from an elevator, yet QUIET! Read entire member review >>
