Cabin 109
Typical cruise cabin with a few enhancements. Double closets with lots of hanging space. Bathroom with a tub and shower. (Note: Tub has VERY high sides and would be difficult for anyone with a mobility problem. I needed to hold the grab bars to get in/out safely.) Vanity has a wonderful magnifying make-up mirror. On the negative side, the hair dryer has to be plugged in under the vanity (European socket.) and you needed to get down on your knees to plug it in. Large sofa with throw pillows. Also in cabin are binoculars, a wool lap blanket and a big umbrella. Door to the balcony in this cabin is shattered/cracked from some sort of impact. The pieces are being held into place with clear tape. Very distracting, like looking through a shattered windshield all the time. Balcony is very deep and the chairs are very comfortable. All in all, the cabin (except for the shattered door glass) was very nice and comfortable. Bed was OK, but a bit lumpy. Pillows were good ...and the bed time chocolates were much appreciated.

Cabin 042

We had a verandah suite on the 10th floor (near seaview - great location - one floor from lido buffet). It was a decent size room (much like a nice hotel suite type room ). It had a nice size couch and chair/desk. There were plenty of drawers (maybe 12-13) and two very large wardrobe closets. Plenty of space under beds for luggage. We fit everything we brought for 42 days easily in the closet/drawers. The room décor had a ‘IKEA” look and feel. Nice and neat and functional. No complaints really except the bed wasn’t as comfortable as it had been on other ships. They really need to change the mattress in room 042. It may be okay if you didn’t have any back issues but for me it was tough to wake up in the morning due to stiff achy back. Disappointed in the bed.

BATHROOM: We had a small bathroom – one vanity, but it was very doable. There was a nice size bathtub that was very deep (no shower). Lots of safety bars all around so that was great. Be very care if you have a bad back/hips stepping in to it. (The Neptune suites may also include a small shower I think). Some people bring over those shoe bags to hang over the door to store extra items. I just brought a several good zip up cosmetic type bags and stored most of my smaller items in them under the sink where there was a nice long shelf. The larger items I kept onto of the sink area. Worked out great and I used the back of the door to hang wet towels. We didn’t have any problems with the toilet not working and that was great (since I suffer from IBS).

Balcony was a good size and very private – loved that. The lido deck extended out over our balcony. At first I didn’t think I was going to like that but as it turned out it was great for blocking out midday sun and light rain. So no complaints here. You did hear a little furniture moving in the evening for a short period of time but not bad at all. Also you hear some carts being pushed up/down the hall at times since the service door was close by – but it was no big deal really.

PLUGS: There was two standard 3-prong plug outlets that was easy to access on top of the desk. There was also a European outlet on the floor under the desk. A little cumbersome to get to if its hard for you to bend down. HOWEVER, if had a large, square plug, like on hair dryers you may have brought…You can’t plug it into the outlet on top of the desk because the desk and mirror get in the way. SO..bring an extension cord ( or two) for your 2 or 3 prong items you may be bringing along. Behind the TV/DVD there were two more standard plug outlets – so if you don’t use your DVD you could unplug that one and use it with your extension cord.

Cabin 203

The "spacious" rooms are not spacious-my wife and I could not pass each other anywhere in our veranda "suite." Lots of closets, sure, but they take up most of the entrance. The bed consumed 2/3 of the floor space

Room 152. Good floor to be on but being so close to laundry room was a definite negative. closet and drawer space was adequate. Bed nice and comfy, great desk/dresser space.

Cabin 028
Staff vacuumed to early in the morning. One evening we could not get any water while trying to get ready for dinner (affected multiple decks - was fixed fairly quickly).

Cabin 204
Decent size, quiet locations, good beds, nice to have a vernadah. But aspects of accommodation distinctly below par and tired to the point of needing early replacement, and needing a deep clean.
