Our cabin was probably the nicest cabin I've stayed in. It was an oceanview cabin on the A Deck (deck 4), we were located mid-ship to aft, so it was relatively quiet no noise from elevators or engines. The room was spacious and had plenty of storage and it was nice to have DVD player. I didn't like the channel selection though on tv; a bunch of channels on what they sell in their shops and a bench of MSNBC type channels as well but I'm not going on a cruise to watch television.
I love the bathroom. It was great to have a tub and the vanity was large. By far the best bathroom I've had on a cruise ship. Our room was always clean and it was nice to have the extensive breakfast menu you could choose from for room service. Read entire member review >>
Great view of the ocean and islands. Room was immaculate. Plenty of closet and dresser space for the two weeks aboard. Enough hangers as well. No need to bring robes as you will find a couple hanging in the closet. Papers left were always neatly piled. There is a safe in the closet and we found there was plenty of room for camera cases and other things as well.
Bed was extremely comfortable. Very difficult getting up each morning Read entire member review >>
Good location. It was in a good position to experience minimum motion during rough seas. Plenty of storage space. But ongoing temperature problems and useless thermostat made it uncomfortable. Read entire member review >>
Good closet and storage but not in the bathroom, quiet, view is of the Prom Deck. Lights are left on all night on the Prom Deck, so you can't see anything because of the glare. Read entire member review >>
My cabin was a good size for a cruise ship. I am not in it much so a balcony isn't a big thing for me, but a window to see the sun coming up in the morning is nice. The one thing that would improve the cabin is more electrical plugs, especially next to the beds. Read entire member review >>
We had 2 of 3 cabins in a section on the Promenade deck and liked them very much for these reasons: immediate access to outside without cost of balcony which would have been a waste of money in the fall; speedy access to elevators and stairs; convenient to laundry and show room. The cabin is small and gets smaller the longer you're on board. The tub is very deep so getting in and out for able-bodied folks is dicey so I don't understand why HAL, which caters to more 'seasoned' and less nimble clients, doesn't remove them and replace with the tubs with walk-in showers. Biggest complaint - air conditioner/heater vents positioned so they blow directly on the bed (I had a sore throat every morning from the air in my face overnight) and there is no way to alter the air flow or turn down the fan speed (there is a constant mild roar). Finally, all the paperwork that appears hourly is such a waste! Read entire member review >>
D605 was a perfect midship, ocean view cabin. Great closet/drawer space. Roomy cabin, though not as roomy as K565 across the hall, if you are willing to do an inside. Tiling in bathroom indicates that some work had been done at some point, but didn't affect our usage. Read entire member review >>
