The beds were comfortable. It seemed just slightly larger than other inside cabins we have tried on other cruise lines we have been on. This provided good storage, but wished the shower stall was slightly larger. Read entire member review >>
Room 776 was on the 4th floor in the very middle. It was sufficient for three people once we had the chair and small table removed. I rented a refrigerator for $2/day (I traveled with refrigerated needles for my arthritis. Just ask for a sharps container if you need one which are free).
The fridge took up the space under the desk. Everything functioned fine once we got used to it. The small shower concerned me at first, but it was much easier than having the tub (in oceanview or higher categories). Having no window was great in Alaska when daylight could last 20 hours.
I believe all rooms are equipped with only one electrical outlet. One plug is a higher 220? volt used for the provided hair dryer. The other plug is a standard 3 prong. We bought an extension cord with 2 outlets and 2 or 3 USB hubs. With the fridge, my laptop, camera battery charger and a portable fan (I enjoyed the air movement and white noise) we found having 3+ outlets would have worked better since we had to constantly unplug/replug items in as needed. Our USB items like tablet/phones got little use since we kept them on airplane mode the majority of the time. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was good sized with a nice sofa for sitting and plenty of room for our clothes. The beds were comfortable and there was almost no movement from the seas. However, the toilet would not flush all of the time. We had maintenance come a look at it, but I think it's a chronic problem in these old ships. Read entire member review >>
Spacious cabin, good ocean views, both tub and shower, lots of storage space and wonderful cabin stewards but very noisy on port days as next to winches and other machinery so awakened with noise about 2 hours before docking at each port of call. Read entire member review >>

It therefore stands to reason that they will have a favorite cruise line or port of call -- in other words, they are "fans" and will sometimes take offense when a brand new member has arrived on the scene to bash a cruise line.
